A gentler-on-the-arm version of past incarnations of the Boris Becker Pro, this one features new Delta Core carbon-nanotube technology and the vibration-dampening Sensor Plus Handle System, both of which are designed to produce a cushy feel. The DC Pro is slightly heavier than the previous versions, giving it a little more clout, while maintaining its outstanding spin production. To maximize spin so you can swing for the backstop but keep the ball in play, the racquet is best accompanied by a semi-Western or Western grip and polyester strings. At net it’s highly mobile and allows users to execute point-ending, backspinning drop shots. Servers who use plenty of slice will appreciate the DC Pro’s assistance. One of our playtesters delighted in repeatedly tangling his hitting partners in the side netting with his wide spin serves.
Bottom Line: Best for former open tournament players who have lost a step and are looking for a little help to plow through the ball.
