Wilson SET Tennis Racquet Malaysia Launch @ National Tennis Centre

On March 29th, I was at the National Tennis Centre to witness the launch of Wilson's new Spin tennis racquets under the Spin Effect Technology (SET) family, namely Juice, Steam, Pro Staff and Blade.



The launch was also attended by Mirzan Tun Mahathir, Chairman of Tennis Malaysia and President of the Kuala Lumpur Lawn Tennis Association.

Mirzan did mention at the launch that the ability to spin the ball faster can help players perform better, adding that the introduction of the new technology is something that all tennis players look forward to. “We welcome the association with Wilson and their latest Spin Effect Technology, as it is our intention to bring tennis to a higher level in Malaysia,” noted Mirzan.

According to Mike Miringoff, Regional Business Manager of APAC, one of Wilson’s biggest successes of the past year has been the introduction of SET to some of the racquets in their current line.

“Our carefully researched Spin Effect Technology has three main benefits to players – more margin for error over the net which means hitting higher over the net, hitting harder whilst keeping the ball in the court and better control of the ball so you can hit sharper angles,” explained Miringoff.


Juice - Developed to deliver maximum power for the widest range of styles, this racket is ideal for nearly all levels. A lightweight, forgiving modern frame designed in a mid-plus head size offers speed and maneuverability from the baseline to the net.

Steam - The Steam is engineered for hard-hitting players who use spin to curve the ball’s flight and control the game. Our revolutionary Spin Effect Technology is the first system that actually increases the RPM of every shot. Now available in a light-weight LS model.

Pro Staff - The Pro Staff is the essence of classic control. This tennis racket has an unmatched history of winning Grand Slams. Now available in a variety of specs to fit a wider range of players.

Blade - Experience a control racket for the modern, aggressive game. The Blade is upgraded with Amplifeel to enhance feel and improve performance. With our new 18x16 Spin Effect Technology string pattern we bring control to the next generation of hard-hitting players.

Indian tennis star, Rohan Gajjar and Malaysian number one, Si Yiew Ming were among tennis enthusiasts present at the National Tennis Centre here to test and experience Wilson’s groundbreaking SET racquets that offers outrageous power and massive spin.

Rohan and Yiew Ming agreed that the tennis game on that day has changed dramatically and is all about aggressive spin, noting that this advancement will bring increased spin potential to a wider audience and will improve their game.

They also had the opportunity to check their tennis prowess by taking a test in the Wilson SET Trackman – a technology to increase the spin rate, power, speed and the distance of the player’s shot.



At the launch itself, there's a few Wilson's product for those who are interested to try it on.


My eyes on the Wilson eXcalibur racquet. The box looks super classy and I am sure this is quite highly priced out there.



Apart from the newly launch Spin tennis racquets, there's also a showcase of Wilson's foot wear, Rush Pro. It comes in several colour choices for those who have their own colour preferences.



The Rush Pro’s new 3D-F.s forefoot technology means maximum acceleration and controlled deceleration. The Rush Pro is designed for the game. It is lightweight and lower to the ground for enhanced feel, stability, speed, and responsiveness.



I like the style of this new tennis shoe compared to those which the current market is offering.


It feels light but sturdy at the same time and the grip at the bottom of the shoe was quite nicely made.


So right now if you are wondering which tennis shoe to get, you might want to consider trying the Wilson's Rush Pro. Oh ya, not to forget that it also comes in Men, Women and even Junior version.
