Ektelon 2014-15 ESP Toron 170 Racquet

The 2014 ESP Toron Pro 170 is a more maneuverable and durable update to the previous ESP RG Toron 170. A devious red and black cosmetic keeps your opponent guessing, while the lower swingweight and 3 grams lighter strung-weight allow for a faster swing.  Reinforced by TeXtreme (a thinner, lighter, and more durable way to weave carbon fibers) in four key areas of the frame to provide torsional stability and superior durability.  Packed with Ektelon innovation, this racquet features a powerful combination of an open string pattern (ESP - Extreme String Pattern) and long main-strings (DPR - Double Power Ring) for loyal fans of the Toron line.

[Ron, The Ektelon ESP Toron 170 Racquet is available in two different grip shapes, the standard SS or the more rounded SSR, as well as two different grip sizes (3 5/8 inch and 3 7/8 inch) to meet player preferences and hand sizes. -RbW Staff]

Comments: Have been playing with eForce for last 3 years as I always had issues with vibration in ektelon racquets; Vibration is non existent in this one similar to eForce.  I have better control; lots of power and the racquet provides very good feedback.

Comments: WOW! I've been playing with the Ektelon 03 White for a long time because of its balanced head weight and sturdy frame. Even though this new Toron is 5 points head heavy, it feels balanced and swings quickly. My swing is less violent now because the racquet generates so much power. The control is good and the sweet spot seems large. Other companies have elaborate vibration dampening systems but nothing beats the simple rubber "worm" woven between the strings. Great racquet!
