I'm a bit of a racquet snob (as you can tell by my spelling of what's generally referred to now as a 'racket'), and when my son quickly needed a new one, I was a little wary of an 'unknown' (to me) brand.
However, it was important I let my son choose his own 'weapon for smash destruction' and he liked this one.
It's a good weight - enough for some power on the ground strokes but not too cumbersome for volleys.
He plays regularly and pretty hard, so when the strings went after just 2 weeks I was disappointed... but I was prepared to foot the bill myself. However, staff at Giltbrook were great and when I told them, they actually provided a new one at no cost - one of the advantages of Decathlon loyalty membership and buying the Decathlon brand products, I guess.
Since then (a few months now) my boy has continued to play three times a week with no further problems and still likes his racket. And I'm pleased with my purchase of his RACQUET.
Good quality and build. Excellent customer service
Short life on strings (but staff fixed this free)
Comfy to use
