Eye Racket Reviews
Eye x.Lite 110 Review
x.Lite 110 is sort of the superstar of the range of Eye rackets. It’s
based on a frame shape that is hugely popular, and the weight and
balance are such that a wide range of people, from beginner to advanced,
will likely prefer this racket to any others in the line.
similar to the x.Lite 110 Pro, but it has a larger head size to help
generate slightly more power. It’s a racket that nicely splits the
difference between rackets that offer no power, but tons of control,
and rackets that offer limitless power, but are difficult to control.
easy to generate the pace required to get the ball to the back of the
court. Unless you require a lot of help getting power, this racquet
won’t pose any problems.
head light enough to make cutting the ball/snapping the wrist a piece
of cake, so players that use a lot of hold prior to the shot will be
able to get the racquet head moving quickly.
similar to the Dunlop Elite and Ultimate in terms of frame shape, but
it’s more like it fits right in the middle of the two. It’s easier to
play consistent shots to length than with the Elite, but it’s much
easier to take the pace off the ball than with the Ultimate.
you have a relaxed, Shabana-esque swing, or a snappy Ramy-like
delivery, this racquet will suit you just fine. Because of the mid-size
head, the string tension can be used to greatly influence the feel of
the racket. Whereas loose strings on a tiny racket will only yield so
much power, and super tight strings on an extra large frame will only
give you so much control, this racket splits the difference between the
two types of rackets. With a low-end string tension on this racket,
you won’t find yourself wanting for power. Should you string in the 30s,
you’ll find that this racket has a ton of precision.
Eye x.Lite 130 Review
x.Lite 130 is Eye’s only head-heavy racket, and it’s just about the
heaviest frame in their entire line. That it still only clocks in at 130
grams is due largely to Eye’s signature design, namely the lack of
bumper, and the minimalist paint designs.
is a racket that would be best suited to intermediate to advanced
players, due to the relatively high weight and the small head size of the
racket. Players with relaxed swings (a la Karim Darwish or Daryl
Selby) would find this racket ideal. In spite of the head-heavy
balance, the racket swings quite easily, and can put a fair amount of
heft on the ball, which makes hitting the back corners fairly
straightforward. This is especially helpful when playing the ball off
the back wall with a shortened swing. While it may not be as easy to
generate head speed compared to a head-light racket, the extra weight
in the racket’s head really helps get added pace on the ball. On
drop-shots, the heft of the racket is offset a bit by the small string
bed, which offers very little trampoline effect, which makes it easier
to reign in the power simply by taking just a bit off your swing. If
your game is length-based, this is a great racket.
you play with a lot of wrist, or if your game involves generating lots
of head speed to put spin on the ball (think Ramy Ashour), then this may
be slightly too heavy a racket for you, and the balance might throw
you off. If you’re require a large, forgiving surface area, then you
might find the x.Lite 130 too demanding.
grip is somewhat rectangular in shape, with distinct edges. Whether you
like this is entirely personal preference. The stock grip is relatively
short, and has no taper, but the shaft below the throat has enough
taper that players can re-grip comfortably further up the frame.
Eye v.Lite 100 Review
v.Lite 100 is a racket that Eye classifies as being ideal for
‘beginner until advanced’, which probably isn’t too far from the truth.
It’s certainly up there with the x.Lite 110 and the v.Lite 110 as far as
versatility. Many beginners will love the fact that the oversize head
provides a huge string bed, and plenty of forgiveness on off-center
hits, while advanced players will like the fact that it’s not like the
other club-like, heavy, oversized rackets aimed at beginners who have
trouble generating any pace.
v.Lite 100 is a wide-bodied racquet, with a very head-light balance. As
such, the v.Lite is very adept at taking the pace off the ball, which
makes it easy to hold and flick the ball at the last second, and makes
it similarly easy to chop the ball short.
string bed has a very plush, soft feel, and is fairly forgiving of
shots hit off-center, though it doesn’t offer quite the amount of power
that one would assume from looking at it. Due to the large headsize,
this can be rectified by stringing the racket on the low end of the
spectrum, which will add more kick to the ball. This type of setup would
probably be beneficial to the beginner or mid club-level player.
Advanced players who generate their own power will probably want to
string the racket tighter.
Eye v.Lite 110 Review
v.Lite 110 is one of Eye’s rackets aimed towards an
intermediate-to-advanced player. It falls in the same sort of category
as the x.Lite 110 and x.Lite 110 Pro, though it’s slightly more
forgiving than either of those two, due to the larger string-bed. It is a
very light racket with a forgiving oversize head. Its head-light
balance allows players to cut the pace off the ball when taking it in
short, or snapping an attacking boast with a last-second flick of the
wrist. It’s also very maneuverable, so it’s easy to get the racket
behind the ball if someone directs a narrow cross court at you when
you’re up on the T.
to the light frame weight, and to the head-light balance, it’s very
easy to time your swing with the v.Lite 110, and it’s very easy to make
subtle adjustments with the wrist if the ball’s slightly ahead or behind
where you’d ideally like to hit it. If you’re lunging to play a
straight drive off a ball that’s already past you, it’s very easy to get
the racket around the ball and to straighten it out. This is one of
the situations where it’s nice to have the larger headsize, since it
will help a bit with the power.
v.Lite 110 would be ideally suited to someone with a fast swing. While
the oversize head does provide some extra power, it doesn’t have a lot
of weight in the head, so it’s still less powerful than a lot of the
rackets out there (though it should be mentioned that the racket
doesn’t feel ‘tinny’ at all, in spite of this). If you use a lot of
wrist in your swing, this is a racket you would be comfortable with. If
you have a more straight-armed swing, or if you don’t swing
particularly fast in general, you might be more comfortable with one of
Eye’s other offerings.
effective gripping area is cylindrical, with no tapering, though there
is a slight taper on the shaft of the racket, which would allow
players to re-grip comfortably further up the racket. The grip is oval
in shape, without any distinct edges. The head shape is reminiscent of a
few others on the market, and compares favorably to these other
