    Review Wilson Hyper Hammer 120

    Review Wilson Hyper Hammer 120
    Blog

    The Wilson Hyper Hammer 120 has been one of the best-selling rackets for quite a while which is hardly surprising, because for relatively little money you get a racket from the top line of Wilson. As this racket is so popular year after year I wanted to test it and see what makes it the choice of so many recreational as well as advanced competition players. I tested it on several occasions and below you can read about my impressions and how the Wilson Hyper Hammer 120 scores in terms of power, control and manoeuvrability.

    I immediately noticed that the Wilson Hyper Hammer 120 feels slightly heavier than you would expect from a racket of 120 grams, but this is explained by the high balance point. On the other hand, it makes the racket swing through nicely during a shot. This high balance point has two major advantages: First, it gives you a lot of power, which makes it easy to hit the ball to the back of the court. The Wilson Hyper Hammer 120 certainly lives up to its name in this respect. Second, you really feel the racket blade which means that you can better control your shots. When it comes to disadvantages of a high balance point, it tends to reduce the agility of the racket. Although the Wilson Hyper Hammer 120 is still quite agile, it is not the best choice if maximum manoeuvrability is what you are looking for.

    I really liked the strings. The Sensation Strike strings give you a great feel and more control over your shots. With most other rackets, the strings are too smooth and soft. The small openings between the strings of the Wilson Hyper Hammer 120 guarantee even more control for accurate shots.

    What is exceptional about the Wilson Hyper Hammer 120 is that you can choose from two colour combinations: black with white stripes or white with streamlined black and blue lines. It is very rare to have exactly the same racket in different colours - you often have this option with shoes and sportswear but certainly not with rackets. And to be honest, nowadays we just love having choice, so this is definitely an extra bonus point for the Wilson Hyper Hammer 120.

    Conclusion Review Wilson Hyper Hammer 120

    The Hyper Hammer 120 offers great value for money and is suitable for recreational and advanced players. Because of the high balance point, the focus is on the hitting power, but the racket also performs well in terms of control and quite well in manoeuvrability. For recreational players who have trouble hitting the ball hard and struggle to get it to the back of the court, the Wilson Hyper Hammer 120 is highly recommended. You will find that the game suddenly seems a lot easier than before, because you can hit the ball hard with little effort.

    How does the Wilson Hyper Hammer 120 score:
    Power: 9
    Control: 8
    Manoeuvrability: 7
