Racket Review: Slazenger Aero V98 Tour


Originally published on: 15/04/13 00:00

The AERO V98 Tour, the racket of choice for doubles specialists Jamie Murray and Ross Hutchins, is the first advanced model produced by Slazenger since the days of Tim Henman. The stiff frame incorporates technology to suit the modern all-round player, providing access to an ample amount of spin with a large forgiving sweet spot. The Monocoque (one-piece) construction, unique to Slazenger, eliminates weak points between the main body of the racket and the bridge section.
