Wilson Hyper Hammer 5.3
The Hyper Hammer 5.3 seems to offer an ideal blend of power, control, and maneuverability. At 27.5 inches, it provides a little more leverage and reach than a standard length racket, without impeding reaction to balls hit close to the body.
Which Racket Is Right For You? Check Out These 3 Critical Factors.
A racket’s head size refers to the total surface area of the string bed and is measured in square inches or centimeters. The larger the head size, the more power and forgiveness the racket gives the player. Smaller head sizes afford players more precision and control with every shot.
Generally speaking, professional players and advanced club players will stick to standard rackets (< 98 sq inches) because they can provide their own power and hit the sweet spot with consistency. Beginner players often start with oversized rackets (106+ sq inches) for extra forgiveness on off-center hits, while intermediate players frequently use midplus rackets (99-105 sq inches) that offer a nice blend of power and control.
Weight greatly affects the performance characteristics of a tennis racket. A heavier racket brings more power and stability through the swing. Heavier rackets also absorb more shock than lighter rackets, which can give players better feel for the ball. This is ideal for players with long, fast strokes that prefer hitting flatter balls with pace and depth.
Conversely, lighter rackets enhance maneuverability and provide easier access to spin. This is optimal for handling volleys around the net, spinning lobs into play, and generating better angles that dip inside the lines. In addition to racket performance, the weight of a racket significantly affects arm comfort. Playing with a racket that is too heavy can lead to poor form, arm discomfort and possible injuries down the line. When in doubt: you can always add weight to a racket, but rarely can you reduce it.
Measured in points, a racket’s balance indicates the distribution of weight within a racket. This can be categorized in three ways: head light, even balance, or head heavy. Head-light (HL) rackets have more mass in the handle of the racket, head-heavy (HH) rackets have more mass in the hoop of the racket, and evenly balanced (EB) rackets have even mass distribution throughout.
While head-light rackets are generally heavier, they also give users added maneuverability and more control over the head of the racket. Head-heavy rackets give lightweight rackets more power and stability, as the added weight in the head helps prevent the frame from moving or twisting during the swing. Lastly, even balance rackets tend to strike a happy medium between the maneuverability of head-light and stability of head-heavy frames.

UPDATE: It has been a week or so ever since I got this racket. I played it everyday to get the most potential. I first rated this racket 5 stars, but that was when I looked at it, not actually playing with it. For people saying that this racket is for beginners, I strongly disagree. I would recommend the Lite version(Wilson Tour Slam Lite) because it is lighter and costs less. The racket is heavy, especially for beginners. I've played tennis long enough,but this racket gives you arm/forearm fatigue and will cause wrist pain. For beginners, you should ALWAYS LOOK FOR A LIGHT RACKET(EVEN IF YOU ARE ON A BUDGET). Go for something less than 10.5 oz, unless you want to spend hours of wrist pain and forearm fatigue. The racket wont swing fast, and is bottom heavy. The ball will fly on you, and it is inaccurate. It will take at least a week to adjust your aiming, and this racket packs too much power. Too much power on a racket is bad for beginners, because they wont be able to control where they hit it, which is why I recommend a light racket. The racket also makes a long PING! when I hit it, so make sure to buy a dampener. The grip is 7/10, and the racket looks really good. The strings are walmart-ish and are cheap. This racket is not worth your money, I would save up to buy a 50 dollar or 70 dollar racket. If you are not willing to pay enough money for a good racket, you are not gonna be good at tennis. The only other budget options I see that are good for beginners are Wilson Tour Slam Lite or Wilson federer, but be warned, because these might not have the result you want.
The Bottom Line:
I just went out and hit balls with this racket and it’s a really good racket for beginner to intermediate players and is a good value. The racket has good feel and power for this price range. The frame is stiff and doesn’t contort much when hitting balls. The grip is comfortable and cushioned. Overall I would recommend this racket to beginner to intermediate players.
**Disclosure: I received a sample product from the Amazon Vine program for an honest and unbiased review.
I didn't know if I was going to take to tennis again, but I did. My next racquet will probably be $100+ for the amount that I enjoy the sport. If you're testing the waters like I was, then this is for you. Not the best obviously, but does the job.
Overall, I definitely recommend these rackets for beginner players. Just know that the racket may break down on you after a short period of time and that you may need to buy grip tape separately as a fix. Who know's though? By the time the handle grip tears apart you may already be ready to move on to the Roger Federer-branded pro tennis racket!
