Wilson Tour Slam Tennis Racket
Introducing a super popular racket in the original Tour Slam. With its large 112 square inch head, the Tour Slam provides a nice margin of error, ensuring that power and comfort remain high when contact is less than perfect. The extra length (27.5”) means that you’ll be able to attack the ball with extra momentum, a fact that bodes well for those who want to hit with more power and spin. The racket comes with Stop Shock pads, which enables the string bed to soak up additional vibration and transfer more power to your shot.
Headsize: 112 in/723 cm
Strung Weight: 10.3 oz/291 g
String Pattern: 16x19
Length: 27.5 in/70 cm
Provides a larger, more forgiving sweet spot.
AirLite Alloy Frame
Wilson is an oversized recreational racket perfect for a beginner player. The extra-large head and length provide more power to your game.

Now for the nitty-gritty, since the specs aren't on the frame itself:
The oversize (110 sq. in.) head size provides you with a larger sweet spot for a more forgiving racket on mishits. This is perfect as it is very encouraging for a beginner or inexperienced player.
The racket weighs in at 11.5oz strung (326g). Unstrung that would be around 10.9oz (309g) so it may be a bit on the heavier side for a very small kid or older (65 yr. old) player. However, it is a nice weight overall - in fact the racket I initially upgraded to had a fairly comparable weight although a smaller head size. As a general guideline, you're supposed to use the heaviest racket you can handle for a few hours of play without exhausting your muscles by the end of the matches due to the weight.
The balance of the racquet is 3 points head-light. Adding this spec for those who are wanting to know, but basically that means it's easily maneuverable and you won't struggle with it in your hands at the net or on the serve, or even at the baseline. It's a very nice balance point.
The strings never broke on me which was nice, as by the time they loosened up enough to get it restrung I was ready to upgrade rackets. Not sure which strings they put in it, but they did provide good power and I was able to apply good spin to the ball as well.
Overall, I didn't care about the specs at all when I bought it. If you're thinking about getting this racket, then you probably aren't that interested in the specs either. Is this a racket for serious competitors? Of course not, let's not kid anyone - when starting a new sport, you don't need to break the bank buying Cadillac equipment. But is it one to get if you're unsure you will stay with the sport? Yes. Is it one to get if you want one to go have fun with your friends every now and again without investing much? Definitely. Is it one to get to have a couple extras laying around for visiting friends who don't regularly play? Absolutely. All in all, I highly recommend this racket for the beginner!
but if you've played tennis before, you know that you can (and should) buy "over grips" and shock absorbers
those accessories are pretty cheap and can be found at most sporting goods store or department
It comes strung tight enough to get straight on the court and looks exactly like the picture
This racquet is light to me, but to someone not as athletic, this racquet might get heavy after playing for awhile
I would definitely recommend racquet for any casual player and I would recommend it to competitive (league) players as a back up racquet. 5-stars for quality to price ratio.
