With the Burn 100, Wilson delivers a lethal blend of precision and power to hard charging baseliners. With its near even balance and beefy swingweight (332 RDC), this stick packs an impressive level of plow-through and stability for a sub 12 ounce racquet. There’s also plenty of spin to be had thanks to the open 16×19 string pattern. Intermediate and advanced ball strikers will have all the ingredients necessary for hitting heavy balls and keeping their opponents off balance. Players with two-handed backhands should love the X2 Shaft which features a longer handle for increased leverage along with a narrower shaft for quicker grip changes. From the baseline, the Burn 100 not only feels solid when defending against higher levels of pace, but it also rewards full swings with some legitimate put-away power. The spin-friendly response should enable topspin player to pick their targets. At net this racquet feels solid, precise and lively. Finally, players who can swing this one fast will get plenty of free points on serve. The Burn 100 should work very well for young players looking to make the leap to a modern players racquet. It should also satisfy the advanced baseliner looking for a lively and spin-friendly weapon.
