Model

Introducing the Functional Tennis Saber, available in 3 weights.

  • Mid (300g unstrung)
  • Lite  (265g unstrung)
  • Junior (240 grams & 2 inches shorter, for 6-10 year olds)

ℹ️ The Saber will arrive to you strung and ready to use 😊 

⚔️ The Saber is an on-court training aid that plays like a normal tennis racket but with a much smaller head size. This unique design with its 37 sq. inch head forces players to focus on ball tracking, optimise footwork, and execute a clean, efficient swing to connect with the ball. 

🏭 Made from a composite material in the same world-class factories as other major brands it comes in a weight of either 300 grams or 265 grams or the new shorter 240 grams version. One coach has said "Straight out of the bag, it feels expensive and very well made"

⏱️ Using it for just 10 minutes as part of your normal warm-up routine will make you a much more consistent player, winning those points that make a difference in matches.

💬 Players 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 had a top International Junior playtest, and his dad reported back “he doesn’t want to play with his normal racket anymore!”.

Recommended String Tension

  • 13.5 KG / 30 lbs

It takes just under 5.5 metres to restring so we recommend you cut 6 metres of string.

A normal set of strings is 12 metres so you will get 2 restring from your normal set 😀

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!!
