With the Burn FST Wilson adds surgical precision and impressive stability to the speedy Burn franchise. At nearly 12 ounces, this stick offers a solid and plush feel at impact. The compact 95in² head is ideal for those who want pinpoint accuracy on full cuts. In addition to accuracy, strong players will also have the needed mass to drive the ball powerfully through the court. Although the swingweight is beefy (331 RDC), Wilson puts some welcomed speed under the hood with their Fast Speed Technology - a feature that combines an extremely aerodynamic beam with a 'whippy' headlight balance. The Burn FST 95 also comes with specially designed inserts for players with two handed backhands. It's called X2 Ergo technology and it provides extra leverage for the top (dominant) hand. On groundstrokes the FST 95 is ideal for trading heavy balls or redirecting the pace of big serves. The firm beam gives this stick a crisp and precise response without ever feeling brassy or overly stiff. Our TW playtesters reported plenty of spin and control, with our biggest hitters finding the mass to hit penetrating shots. At net the Burn FST 95 feels solid against pace and the control is outstanding. On longer groundstroke swings and serves we found this racquet to come around surprisingly fast for its weight. Finally, control on serves is exceptional, and there is decent pop available to those who can deploy this racquet's mass. The heaviest member of the Burn franchise does not disappoint. Players looking for a modern midsize racquet that does not skimp on spin, plow-through or comfort should give this one a serious look.
Please note: This racquet comes with two sizes of X2 Ergo handle inserts. The shorter inserts come pre-installed, and the longer inserts come in a separate bag. The inserts are easily removed if a traditional feel is preferred.
