Wilson launches tennis racquets with Spin Effect Technology in Malaysia, confident that the products are the best in the market now

A couple of weeks back, I’ve attended a launch event for a product line of a sport that I wasn’t entirely familiar with, but it sure was very interesting as the public were invited to come and test and experience the new racquests along with Indian tennis star, Rohan Gajjar and Malaysian number one, Si Yew Ming. Held at the National Tennis Centre in Kuala Lumpur, this was the local debut of Wilson’s new, groundbreaking Spin racquets, under the Spin Effect Technology (SET) family, namely Juice, Steam, Pro Staff and Blade.

It was said that these racquets offers outrageous power and massive spin. During the event, the players were given 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, accuracy and the distance of the player’s shot.

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.

When asked what’s the price range of their racquets and to sum up in a short sentence as to why players should choose the Spin Effect over the others in the market, Miringoff explained that the price varies from US$50 to US$230 depending on the needs of the player, and that he is absolutely confident that Wilson’s Spin Effect are the best racquets in the market now.

Also present was Mirzan Tun Mahathir, Chairman of Tennis Malaysia and President of the Kuala Lumpur Lawn Tennis Association. Commenting on the racquets, Mirzan said 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.
