A number of factors make the Wilson BLX Tempest Four the perfect tennis racquet for beginners and occasional tennis players. Firstly the large 110 square inch head provides a large hitting area to create more margin for error and a generous sweet spot for good zip from your ground strokes. This large head size also makes a good level of spin easily accessible even for the novice. The open 16 x 20 string pattern further aids spin generation, whilst providing a good level of length and directional control. At only 8.7 ounces this racquet is also highly manoeuvrable and the head heavy balance further assists players to generate rapid racquet head speed. At the net the lightweight nature of the racquet and the solid feel make even the hardest volleys that little bit easier.
