The head-light balance and manageable weight make it very easy to generate good swing speed with the RQiS 2 Tour. It has a thin throat which offers some flex for better feel, but the beam widens around the head for added stiffness, stability and pop. Controlled strokes are rewarded with excellent pace and the control, while not pinpoint, isn’t completely sacrificed. “It just gave me a lot of power on every shot,” said a 3.5 female all-courter. Playtesters particularly liked the extra juice they got on serves, where the extra half inch length also came in handy. The RQiS Tour 2 was especially popular with our female reviewers, who found it to be a capable performer at both the baseline and the net. The grip on the racquet is also unusually long, which may appeal to players with two-handed backhands. The RQiS 2 Tour is used by Maria Kirilenko.
