I originally purchased this as a racket for my daughter in summer 2018 and it was also going to double up as spare for myself, (a spare to my Pure Drive lite 2018) . Not happy with my hitting recently I decided to swapped over to the Artengo TR990 and really like it, so Its become my racket of choice, hence I purchased another one, so I have a TR 990 and no family squabbling over it ;-) I would highly recommend this racket
I bought this asa back up for my Babolat but have now moved over to the Artengo full time. Very pleased.
I play tennis for 15 years and always played with top of the range HEAD (played with around 8 different racquets) but this racquet brings me the perfect balance between power and control ! Artengo went the extra mile on the development of it and the result is spectacular and also really good looking !
Even though many of us tennis equipment junkies and tennis lovers know the brand Artengo, many won't. Do not be put off because this racquet is a gem, and plays better than most major household name company racquets which I won't mention. Artengo uses an OEM original equipment manufacturer like everyone else, so don't worry about them being too different, except for where it counts, and that is quality! The frame is beautifully constructed and I believe they have foam in the hoop like their other rmodel the tr960, which is why they play more heavier than the specs listed, but that is a good thing. This racquet is just addictive, with controllable power. It plays somewhat like a mixture of an Extreme pro, APD, and a pure drive, but with the comfort and playability of an old school frame. The stiffness rating feels like 63 and not 68, the soft feel lives up to it's name. I have been using 16g poly strings to further add control and enhance spin and power. The spin is insane, and serves will get you easy points. Volleys are fantastic, and the frame itself is very very stable. If anyone is curious i measured the beam width (because artengo do not list this spec) it's 24-23-22 beam, 24mm tip, 23mm sides, 22mm throat/handle I just wish they sold grommets /bumper replacement. Will this be an option Decathlon?
this racquet is quite a surprise indeed. i dont expect such a user friendly racquet can produce such power and ease at the same time. the sweet spot is big but without sacrifice the control. if you play with big swing, the light weighted frame allow you to swiing with ease and power. if you have a compact swing , you still be able to held up quite firmly with fast pace balls. I played with it for 2 hours trading shots on baseline effortlessly. strongly recommend to coaches and 4.0 or up players.
Very solid and nice racket. Low RA, good control. Especially looking for arm friendly. Best choice. Friends switched this and get rid of Pure Drive. Good top spin.
excellent touch & feel easy to use good placement bit a little bit too much power, much suitable for western grip users
good feel but can be designed to swing easier still
Bought TR9990 Pro after a lot of research amongst all the top brands available in the market and the range offered by Decathlon. The best thing about this piece is the balance. Eventhough it weighs 300g still feels lighter compared to other lighter versions available . You can feel the innovations of speed and spin in your shots remarkably. All my searches since the past few months ended here and I got the weapon of my choice. Recommend it for intermediate players like me who want to get into the pro league.
Thank you for this very useful feedback.
Enjoy tennis with Decathlon.
Superb.. better than all that other known brands offer.. totally enjoying playing with it for the past 5-6 months.. comes at ~300 gms.. so note that while buying..
Thank you so much.
We have designed this racket with ATP professional
players and we are glad they please our Indian users.
Racquet suites my play style a lot.. Completely switched to TR990 PRO as this is my Main Racquet.. Waiting for TR930 SPIN to get released in India as it has got more positive reviews which is absolutely comparable to Babolat Pure Drive 2021..
Yes the TR 930 spin lite will soon be available.
Not in all our stores, but for sure on our website.
Nice product value for money... used almost 6 month much cheaper than market famous brands

300 gWeight: Measured in grams. Just like balance point and length, the weight impacts a racket's swingweight and therefore its manoeuvrability, stability and ability to transfer energy to the ball (power). The heavier the racket, the more power you'll get, but the harder it will be to handle. The lighter the racket, the easier it will be to handle, but the trade-off is less power.
32 cmBalance: This is the racket balance point, measured in centimetres from the bottom of the shaft. The higher the number (head heavy), the more powerful and stable upon impact the racket will be. However, it will also be harder to manoeuvre. The smaller the number (grip biased or handle heavy), the easier the racket will be to handle but you'll have less power and stability.
645 cm²Head size: This is the surface area of the racket head size measured in squared centimetres. It has an impact on the racket's forgiveness and power. The larger the head size, the more powerful and forgiving it is, but the downside is less control. The smaller the head size, the more control you'll get, but you'll have to sacrifice power and forgiveness.
70 RaRa: This refers to the racket's stiffness, i.e. how much it bends under the impact of the ball. The stiffer the racket (the higher the Ra), the less it bends. The energy lost on impact is minimised and returned to the ball via the strings. Generally, a stiffer racket offers greater power.
SW = 280Swingweight: This indicates how easy a racket is to handle and its ability to transfer energy to the ball (power). The higher the swingweight, the more powerful the racket, but also the harder it will be to handle. Conversely, the lower the swingweight, the easier the racket will be to handle, but the trade-off is less power. The swingweight is derived from a combination of the racket weight, balance and length.
16 x 19String pattern: This is the number of mains (vertical strings) x the number of crosses (horizontal strings). The more strings the pattern has, the more "closed" it is; the fewer it has, the more "open" it is. A more closed string pattern offers a greater feeling of control, but less power and spin. A more open string pattern provides more power and spin, but less control.
68.5 cmLength: This is the length of the racket from the bottom of the grip to the top of the head. It is measured in centimetres. The longer the racket, the more power you'll get, but the flip side is that it will be harder to handle. The shorter the racket, the easier it will be to manoeuvre, but you'll have to give up power.
The Spin Concept technology on the racket grommets improves string movement at the time of ball impact, increasing spin.
High Modulus Carbon makes the racket stiffer.
