Introducing the new sweet spot training tool from Functional Tennis to help you feel the sweet spot. 

Made from a composite material in the same world-class factories as other major brands it has a 37in square head and weight of 312 grams strung, one coach has said "Straight out of the bag, it feels expensive and very well made"

Early testers have said it's a “game-changer” providing a “great feel” and a “must-have for every coach and serious player”. 

There is no need to change your grip or adjust your playing style to be efficient, simply swap your racket for the saber and you will feel at home right away. We’ve even had a top International Junior playtest it and his dad reported back “he doesn’t want to play with his normal racket anymore!”.

FAQS

The sabers were initially meant to arrive to our office in Dublin on the 20th May with shipments to customers beginning straight away.

There is now a delay with the shipment due to port conjestion in Rotterdam and the shipment date to customers will begin on June 14th.

It weighs 312 grams strung.

Yes it comes strung.

Of course, it can smile 

It can be restrung with either a manual machine, an electronic machine with the badminton kit and it's possible with an electronic machine without the badminton as Nikki from Unstrung Customs shows us here in this video

We recommend stringing it between 25 and 30 lbs (11 kg - 13.5kg)

The saber has a bigger hitting area compared to the pointer, it's more comfortable on the arm and less forgiving but still difficult.

Also, it allows you to easily hit spin with your normal grip, unlike the pointer where it's harder to hit spin and you have to adjust your grip.

Plus wait til you see the fun you have with it!!

A real game changer!!

Straight out of the bag, it feels expensive and very well made and after just a few strikes with it, I can tell that this is going to be a game changer in the tennis industry. A must have for every coach and serious player. I’ve been using the tennis pointer regularly, but this tool improves on it by allowing you to swing properly, with your normal shapes with a great feeling upon impact. When you hit it clean… you really hear it! Love it!!
