Racket Review: Wilson Burn 100CV
Originally published on 01/06/17 00:00
In the second part of our 2017 racket reviews our testers put rackets aimed at club players through their paces.
A bigger head and lighter weight than that of the Pro Staff 97 in the advanced category, the Wilson Burn 100CV is a more forgiving and manageable racket for intermediate players.
The Burn range, which is championed by the likes of Kei Nishikori and Simona Halep, was designed to combine power and spin to produce a big game from the baseline just like Nishikori and Halep.
Both Elliot and Jenny felt it was a very solid racket to hit with and when we hit it the centre of the strings our shots were extremely effective due to the sheer power we could generate. Elliot said: “I found it a very solid racket but it was slightly variable on off centre hits.”
The matte appearance of the racket certainly gave it a real modern look.
