Babolat Introduces the XS Line of Racquets for Intermediate Players



If you are an intermediate level player looking to change racquets, check these out. Babolat has just introduced its new XS line featuring the company’s new Xtra Sweetspot technology.  These are lightweight, maneuverable racquets with a grommet design that significantly increases the sweet spot, which is helpful to those among us who don’t hit dead center on every single ball. You can see the new Pebax grommets on each side of the racquet face above. The new technology means that you really don’t have to go to an oversized head if off-center hits are a problem. Both the Babolat XS 102 and 105 are MSRP $119 USD unstrung. String recommendation: Babolat Addiction (comfort). There appears to be very little difference between the two models; color is one and the 105 has a slightly larger head size. Learn more at Babolat or go to Tennis-Warehouse to buy or demo.

Please note, the yellow XS 102 shown above is only available in Europe. The U.S. distributed version is blue.
