This racket by Wilson is packed with performance-enhancing technologies developed by its maker. Among these features are the Amplifeel handle system, to filter out unwanted vibrations for an improved performance and a cleaner feel, Parallel Drilling to allow the strings to transfer more energy, and Braided Graphite to effectively absorb impact.

There is a vast selection of Wilson Bags available to store your racket, but we recommended the Tour V 15 Pack. The 3 large compartments offer plenty of space for rackets, apparel and shoes while multiple small accessory pockets can be used to store valuable personal items.
