With its thin, tapered beam, open string pattern and lower-end RA rating, the Phantom Pro 100 successfully bewildered our playtesters, who admitted they weren't sure what to expect. On the court, this racquet surpassed expectations and didn't appear to fall short in any category. Both from the baseline and on serves, spin and direction were easy to control. At net, volleys were executed with killer touch and tremendous maneuverability. Beyond these reports, this racquet's shining attribute may have been the soft, plush feel that was easy on the arm, and described by one player as a "breath of fresh air" compared to other modern offerings. The solid beam contributed to a boost in control and an improved connection to the ball, compared to the original Phantom 100's Port Hole technology. The solid beam, although lacking that whippy sensation, still cut through the air while maintaining good stability on contact. The definition of plush, this racquet was exceedingly comfortable and loaded with feel.
The Textreme Phantom Series, designed in collaboration with Tour professionals, is the ideal line for the modern aggressive player. Providing an incredible amount of touch and control, the Phantom racquets still have the power needed to hit explosive winners. The combination of Textreme and a super thin CTS construction provides a never before experienced playability.
