This is a plush power stick for accomplished pushers—a label we use with the utmost respect for the crafty spin-doctor crew. It has a gargantuan hitting area with a wide-open string pattern that will bite the ball to help you put different spins on your shots. A head-heavy balance provides an extra boost on short swings so you can hit deeper into your opponent’s court. The [K] Three.FX features Wilson’s Triad shock absorbers to help dampen vibration, and the new Quad Shaft, four separate shafts instead of the usual pair leading to the head, which are designed to increase stability. Players who loft a steady diet of soft shots and spins will appreciate the [K] Three.FX when their opponents fire back screamers. The racquet is also a great choice for beginners who are working on hitting the strings more than the handle because of its elongated face.
Bottom Line: Slice masters should give this a test spin.
