The head light balance of Warrior 100 offers you excellent maneuverability which makes it great at the court. It delivers an extra-ordinary punch on those volleys, thanks to its super solid and a highly responsive feel.

Color Contrast

While there are very limited color options, the color scheme on the racquet itself is satisfactory and doesn’t appeal much.
