New Solinco Racquets

Rookie
Not sure why but they usually don't address the stiffness/flex of the racquets they are testing. Didn't address it for these Solincos as well.
I think they tend to prefer stiffer racquet. He mentioned he really liked the 71 RA Wilson Burn.
Overall, I enjoy their content.

Not sure whether there's already a thread about these, but just watched the review from "Tennis Spin"


Thoughts...?

To me, the white one seems like a Tecnifibre TFight 305 XTC, or as they said a Babolat Strike 16x19.

If it's a softer Strike with a better touch... that sounds pretty good.
What is it made of ?? new super strenghth Graphene,, ? super light kevlar ? space age ceramic ?

So solinco is going the way of Babolat and expanding from strings to racquets? I’ll have to check his video out.
Solinco has been making racquets for years. They’re just not very well advertised.
Google ’Solinco Pro 10’ or ‘Solinco Pro 8’.

First Babolat, then Technifobre, then Diadem and now Solinco. Seems every string maker, once they get high in their britches wants to expands into the racket market.

Not sure why since for the most part the money is in the replaceables (strings, over grips).

Of course the biggest problem the poly craze brought about was non-breaking strings for rec players. I know guys (and gals) that almost never change their poly strings. Maybe releasing stiff frames that break these strings is the string makers answer to that conundrum.

The stiffness on the white is around 65 and the stiffness on the black is 69.

Let's just say...it's a copy of another very highly reviewed racquet in a 16x19 pattern, could be very well a top pick IMO o_O

I tried their protocol racquet because they won me over with their strings but it was nothing special. I hit with their new 100 and now I cant wait for the release, ended up buying a pretty used demo to hold me over

I tested the white racket and I feel its very similar to a v7 blade without the Wilson Clash Flex Technology. I didn't mind the slightly stiffer feel. It did seem to have a tad more juice than a Blade typically does. I loved the all white PJ but thats just due to it being a prototype.

I’ve got both white and black prototypes from Solinco. White one is great, but the black racket prototype is a game changer. Stable, good control and good pop. Comfortable.

Agreed, feels so good to hit with this thing! I was always willing to overlook some soreness with the PD due to the shots I was able to hit but this black prototype is on another level! you get it all with no pain (for me at least).

Solinco doesn't hide there prototypes . They state the flex and swingweight on paperwork when we get the sticks . Amazing company love there RnD.
Absolutely agree. The one downside to these racquets/prototypes is that the grips are massive. I got 4 1/4 ‘s and they feel really big.

I would totally agree with this as well. I'm a true 4 1/4 and this thing (without overgrip) felt like it felt snug already without an overgrip. When one was added (wilson pro) I felt like I was in middling territory of a quarter and 3/8ths.

Any information on release date or availability?
I am interested in trying both prototypes but Solinco racquets are not easy to find.
