With the Burn 100 v4, Wilson delivers a lethal blend of precision and power to hard charging baseliners. With its 328 swingweight, this stick packs good plow-through and stability for an 11.2 ounces racquet. There's also plenty of spin to be had thanks to the open 16x19 string pattern. Intermediate and advanced ball strikers will have all the ingredients necessary for hitting heavy balls and keeping their opponents off balance. Made with a firm Carbon Fiber Graphite, the Burn's response feels crisp and powerful. This stick also features Parallel Drilling which helps the strings soak up more vibration and transfer greater energy to the ball. From the baseline, the Burn 100 not only feels solid when defending against higher levels of pace, it also rewards full swings with some legitimate put-away power. The spin-friendly response will enable you to bring the ball down hard, and there is enough mass in the head to keep the racquet stable on service returns. At net this racquet feels solid at impact, and there is plenty of power for finishing points with authority. There's also impressive power and spin to be had on serve. Ultimately, the Burn 100 v4 is ideal for intermediate and advanced players looking to go on offense.

Other Items to Consider
Comments: I've had this for a few months, and I'm increasingly impressed with it. I've been switching back and forth between this racquet and a Pure Strike, but in the end, the Burn wins out. I'm a 3.5 level player, so maybe my technique isn't good enough for the Pure Strike, but most of my shots just work with the Burn. I've won all my league matches using it while with the Pure Strike, my backhand and other shots have been super hit and miss. It doesn't seem like the difference between a 98sq inch frame and a 100sq inch frame should be that noticeable, but for me, it's night and day. I've got the Burn strung up with Wilson's Champion's Choice at 55 pounds and it's a great fit.

Comments: Best 100 square inch racquet on the market right now. Wilson have hit a home run with this one. Beats the new Babolat Pure Drive in feel, control, power but controllable power and is a far more comfortable with better feedback when striking the ball. The price point is good as well. I have two of these racquets and will be buying a third.
Comments: I just got this racquet earlier this month and so far I am loving it. I got this racquet because it had similar specs to the Babolat Pure Drive, but unlike the Babolat it was less expensive and unlike older Wilson racquets this Wilson Burn v4 does not have any dampening or gimmicky attributes like Countervail. It's a no nonsense racquet and that's what caught my eye. I had it strung at 55 pounds with Prince Synthetic Gut and my skill level is a 3.0 level. This racquet generates tremendous power and has good spin. Control is good, but could be better with a hybrid string setup. I highly recommend this racquet it you want a no nonsense racquet that is specked similarly to the Pure Drive, but at a better price and comes from a reputable brand.
