Player Recommendations

In my opinion, these rackets will best suit intermediate to advanced recreational tennis players, as they are relatively heavy frames will small head sizes that will require decent technique in order to get the most out of them.

Beginners are likely to find these rackets too heavy and unforgiving so they will be better off going with the lite versions (MPL and 98L).
