The New Donnay Allwood has become our best selling racquet in the 2 months since it's introduction. Response has been nothing short of amazing. Although it's incredibly light, along with a swing weight to match, it's stability amazes everyone, and it has the power it's weight would normally prevent it from providing. Add to that, it's incredible Arm Friendly Feel and it becomes obvious why it is flying out the door.
The Donnay Allwood traces it's heritage back to Borg's wooden weapon he was known to have strung upwards of 80lbs. This new Allwood of course is not actually made of wood, but with it's unbelievably low RA rating of 50 will feel like the wooden racquets many of us grew up on, but with not only a larger sweet spot, than almost any wooden racquet ever made, but also ample power along with superior control. Now add Donnay's industry exclusive 90 day "Guaranteed or your Money Back" Comfort and the Allwood is in a category all it's own.
The Allwood 102 Hexacore is not only the most comfortable oversized racquet you can buy thanks to Donnay's patented solid-core Xenecore technology, but it also has swashbuckling maneuverability. & with it's astounding RA of just 50, it feels like Wood, but still performs like Graphite
The thinner-beamed 102 cuts through the air like a knife with one of the lowest swing weights in the tennis industry, but without the usual tradeoff in power and stability of other easiest-to-swing frames that are prone to being overcome by the force of the incoming ball and twisting on off-center hits.
Fortified with six solid cores throughout the frame, the Allwood 102 stands its ground on the most aggressive shot from your opponent and sends the ball back like a catapult, snapping it out of the stringed loaded with spin.
To get the most of its power potential you should have a moderately fast full swing but you don't have to be a tournament-level player to fully enjoy its even combination of power potential and control.
In fact, it's the perfect shot tamer for big hitters that have a tendency to launch too many of their groundstrokes beyond the baseline lodging them into the back fence.
The Allwood 102's headsize increases the prime hitting zone but its thin flexible beam and head-light balance negates the aerodynamic drag you'll find in competitive racquets in the oversized category.
That makes it a great choice for not only baseline bashers but also for recreational doubles players for those lightning-quick exchanges at net and reaction volleys.
