Rated 2 out of 5 by PPD Broke Very Very Quickly Broke Very Quickly with no wall or floor damage May 1, 2008
Rated 1 out of 5 by Cam Neck cracked after first use The fibreglass coating around the aluminum frame cracked the first time I used it, without hitting any walls or the floor. so far, It hasn't affected the feel, but the aluminum frame is now visible at the neck. The crack has worsened everytime i've played and i've only used it 4 or 5 times. March 23, 2008
Rated 1 out of 5 by DSG not so great I got this raquet a few months ago and it has already broken and is unusable. I thought it was poorly made. January 30, 2009
Rated 4 out of 5 by Dink This racquet is great. The racquet is light in weight and has a good grip feel to it. It seems to flow more easily during swings than some previously used racquets. I would recommend this as an affordable, quality racquet. May 13, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by courtside57 good value, decent racquet for the price i only wanted a racquet for occasional play and didn't want to spend a lot. it's not bad for what i need it for, although for someone who plays more frequent this may not be a good choice. the wrap was very slick, i had to re wrap it first thing and there is a pretty small sweet spot, so miss hits feel a bit uncomfortable. for me it worked out well, although if i ever decide to increase my play time, i will be looking to upgrade.

Rated 1 out of 5 by MadiCole2 Never Again I baught this raquet lest season for my JV tennis season because it was cheap and I needed a raquet. I showed it to my varisty coach and he told me its junk. It vibrates constantly and really light weight, so it moves in my hand after every contact with the ball and its very difficult to control the ball. I don't recomend this raquet. March 6, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Idunno It is a fair deal It was awesome but the handle was white and the top was a little sticky and got all dirty there. However overall it was great! October 22, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Actorgirl129 Very good, but very light I own the racket, but I'm not a major player. I just recently took up tennis and thought it to be a very good racket, but my pro coach thought it was a children's racket because it was so light and I had better control with his heavier one. Ultimately, I believe it is a great product for beginners, but if you're serious you may want a heavier racket. July 17, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Marvolo Price is attractive; quality is mediocre at best Picked this one based on the Slazenger reputation, price and overall positive reviews. It feels very light and quite unstable when hitting the ball. Even on dead-center contacts, it bounces back a lot more than any other racquet I have played with. Also, I can feel it vibrating in my hand for a relative long time, after each hit. Would only consider it good for first time players who want to try tennis at minimal cost. July 17, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Brn2flyguy So Far, So Good I'm no tennis pro, but this racquet is very light and comfortable to use. I've had good fun playing with it. June 19, 2014
