10Rate's editors also awarded the Best Value award for Tennis Racquets to the Head Tis5 tennis racquet.
Receiving an 8 of possible 10 rating, its top features were the "Comfortable grip, lightweight feel, and great control." The review also stated, "Easy to wield and maneuver at only 8.74 ounces strung, it has an enlarged sweet spot and handles shots at all kinds of angles. Even with a slow, compact swing it delivers great power." Additionally, the Best Budget award from the Best Tennis Racquets Reviews went to the Wilson WRT32080U Tennis Racquet.
The review described it as "a beginner's racquet with lightweight yet powerful construction. At just 8 ounces, it's easy to wield and swing, and its enlarged sweet spot guarantees you'll hit even those off-center shots with some power. In fact, if you're used to really whacking at the ball, you may find yourself hitting it outside the fence with this racquet." 10Rate also explained that the Best Budget winner is available for $14.86.
Prince, Wilson, Babolat, and Head all made the Comparison Tennis Racquets Ratings list with multiple racquet models this year.
