    Stiff and light, the Hammer was and is a great racquet for an advanced player.

    I am a 4.5 level player that was rated even higher in my younger days. Now that I am pushing 60 years old I find that my reflexes are not what they used to be. I borrowed a Wilson Hyper Hammer 5.3 from a friend and was impressed by the power, lightness and my ability to maneuver it around, especially at the net. I have since bought 6 of them from existing old stock and it is my main racket of choice. I'm using a poly string with tension in the upper 50's. This was determined by trial and error and find this to be a great match for the frame.The racket claims to be for players of beginner to intermediate ability but I definately dispute that. I still play at a high level for my age and this racket has given me the extra edge that I need as I mostly play competitive doubles nowadays.

    This is a good racquet to start off for beginners and lower intermediate players. It is on the lighter side and has good spin and power. Control is somewhat erratic, especially against hard hitters at the net and hard hitters from baseline. Feels stiff too. Overall, not bad for an oversized racquet. Although you get good power, be sure to ice up your arms afterward. Strung at 58 lbs with Babolat RPM Blast. I'm a 4.0 rated singles/doubles baseliner.
