Wilson updates the Five 103 with Amplifeel 360 technology to give this racquet an even cleaner feel at impact. This racquet makes a great choice for the stronger beginner, intermediate player, or even a life-long player looking for a more forgiving hit. This racquet features Wilson's classic Triad technology, which provides a softer hit, and is great for people who suffer from tennis elbow. The open string pattern helps provide a lively response from the stringbed, and the potential for spin. This racquet is a solid option that is as big on comfort as it is on all-court performance.

Power and Feel. The entire core of the handle and throat is wrapped in basalt sheets for greater shock absorption, as compared to Amplifeel. By combining basalt and an urethane polymer, two very lightweight materials, the relative balance of the racquet shifts towards the head. This ultimately results in more power generation.
Unlike traditional racquets, Triad racquets are constructed in three distinct pieces: the head, the throat and the handle. The head offers power with an oversized hoop. The throat utilizes IsoZorb, an impact absorbing material, between the head and handle for increased arm comfort. The handle offers stablity and control, as a nature of being separated from the rest of the frame.
