Some of the game’s current players are incomprehensibly wonderful ambassadors of the sport. They are unlikely to vanish once they hang up their rackets. It would be good however to think that whoever the current batch of best players is and whatever period it may be that they will lead the way and encourage others to preserve the majestic originality of tennis and every aspect that makes the ATP and WTA tours such a privilege to observe year in year out.
Two models in the 2017 Ultra line feature Countervail (CV) technology (the Ultra 100 CV and Ultra 105S CV) which is exclusive to Wilson performance rackets. CV is an integrated frame technology that minimizes vibration without sacrificing performance and feel. According to a University of Minnesota School of Kinesiology study** tennis players using a racket with CV experienced up to 30 percent less vibrational energy from the racket and as a result of less fatigue 40 percent more control over their shots. In addition to maximizing player energy CV shortens recovery time after matches.
Extra string: It happens. Strings break sometimes quicker than you might think. It's always good to keep an extra set or two (or maybe even a reel) of your favorite string that you can take to a local stringer to get your racquet re-strung when you're in a pinch.
Once I got to the courts 4S was about what I expected from a geometric poly—spin potential was above average and feel was solid though not as crisp as I typically like. The flipside is that 4S felt very soft and was one of the most comfortable polys I've used in quite a while. Fortunately the soft feel didn't come at the expense of durability. I played past the 12-hour mark with my set and didn't break it though they definitely felt a little dead towards the end. As I've noted in the past I find that most polyester strings go dead and lose tension well before they snap though I'd expect that heavy string breakers may break Black Code 4S before it goes dead or gets mushy.
