How Does the Head Zephyr UL perform?

Head’s Zephyr line is designed for beginner or intermediate players looking for easy to play with, soft, round rackets. All models have low to medium balances and fiberglass faces.
The soft surfaces exhibit the trampoline effect on balls, so you get a large bounce to pass low-speed balls, and the racket face absorbs powerful shots.
The main difference between the models lies in their weight, which, in descending order, is: the Zephyr Pro at 365g, the Zephyr at 345g, and the Zephyr UL at 340g.
The Zephyr UL, or "ultra light," is very easy to maneuver and will feel fast at the expense of “solidity”.
