Solinco has its sights set on becoming a complete tennis equipment company. An established string brand, earlier this year they added to its expanding catalog when it released two brand-new racquet lines. The Whiteout is a 98 square-inch frame designed for precision and comfort, while the Blackout is a 100 square-inch model that boasts easier spin and power. The racquets come in varying weights, but there was an option missing from the lineups: extended length.
The additions of the Whiteout 305 XTD and Blackout 100 XTD frames brings two newcomers and choices to the franchises. At 27.5 inches in length, the frames will provide extra reach and leverage on shots such as serves and two-handed backhands for added power and plow through. Except for the extra half-inch in length, the racquets essentially have the same specs as the standard length versions.
