Pros and Cons

The 110 offers good power, is lightweight, has a big sweet spot, and is a good option for beginner to intermediate doubles players.

However, the 110 is a relatively stiff frame that doesn’t offer much in terms of control so it will not be suitable for advanced players with a full swing.

Similarly, the Team also has good power, a manageable swing weight, a big sweet spot, and is very maneuverable but it too has a high stiffness rating and low levels of control.

Head to Head

The 110 offers more easy power, while the Team is the better option in terms of control, spin, and arm friendliness.

Player Recommendations

Both rackets are best used by beginners as more advanced players will find they are too powerful with too little control.
