Description of the Racquet
This Ektelon frame may be the most dynamic racquet every produced. You have the ability with the new Power Ring 8 customization kit to string this racquet one of two patterns (Only when choosing Racquetworld String Upgrade). The racquet comes strung from the factory with the DPR pattern. The DPR pattern enhances the racquets power and the Power Ring 8 (customization kit) pattern enhances the control. This racquet also features the 03 Plug system. This system allows you to change the balance point as well as the over all weight of the racquet....again allowing you to tweak additional power or control. With so many setup options, this racquet works for almost anyone.
This racquet is designed for the slightly older player having a base weight of 190. Everyday we hear customers say they like their 190 weight but wouldn't mind a few extra grams. Throw those plugs in there and you got it!
Another benefit with purchasing from Racquetworld is how much we customize. This racquet is right up our alley. You tell us how you want the plugs installed. If you want a restring, you tell us if you want it strung for power (DPR inserts) or control (power ring 8 style). If you do not upgrade to a different string, you will get the factory DPR pattern automatically.
If you're unsure about your model or weight...try our DEMO Program.
These are only available in the SS (3 5/8) or Large (3 7/8) grip sizes.
A racquet cover IS NOT provided by the manufacturer with this racquet. You have the option to add a cover for $10 if you would like.
RacquetWorld's General Notes
I would recommend changing the grip to a Python (Our favorite), or Head TackiMac† for the added traction to prevent slippage.† The Racquetworld Grommet Tape upgrade ($1) can save you $$ in the long run as sometimes strings break from the grommet being worn down.For those who don't know what the grommet is, it's the plastic piece at the top of the racquet that the strings go through.When you hit the wall and floor this gets worn down.
The Python Atlas string upgrade is recommended because factory string is less playable/durable then the Python Atlas string we suggest. At the time of purchase, the Python Atlas restring upgrade is $22.00.† It's normally $36 if you mailed the racquet to us later so you save $14 if you choose the upgrade right away.
If you choose a vibration dampener go with the Ektelon Silencer (Our favorite), Head Megasorb, Gamma Worm or the BBB (Big Bad Band).
The wristlacer black is the default wrist tether that comes on your racquet at no charge.If you want to change colors, a small fee of $2.95 will be added for switching.
A question we get everyday is "What is Grommet Tape?"It's a piece of tape that goes over the head (bumper) of your racquet.Sometimes you need a restring because of a broken bumper.For an extra buck to add this, it could save you $25-40!!
We get follow up calls/emails everyday thanking us for the upgrades as they really help bring out the performance of the racquet.†
