It isn’t too often that you see a 93in headsize with a lighter weight like this (11oz), so this is definitely a different feeling racquet. The sweet spot is tough to get used to, but once you do this racquet can do great things for you. You can really feel yourself hit through the ball with this frame, there is little to no vibration and has a very solid, stable feel. I love the lighter feel of this frame because it allows me to swing effortlessly and play in a fast paced environment. I have a shorter, compact swing and I found that this racquet really helps me in that sense. This frame is easy on the arm and very maneuverable on the court. It is sometimes a little tough to generate power with this because of the small head size and light weight, but you get used to it after using it a few times. I’d recommend this for a more advanced player.
Decided to demo this frame over the newer frame, really like the price this frame is at right now. Not often you see racquet specifications like the Prestige Rev Pro. This racquet is really geared for advanced players who can handle hitting with a 93 square inch frame with a lightweight 11.1-ounce strung weight. I really enjoyed the balance and flexibility of the frame. Was nice and easy on my arm. Did have trouble connecting within the small sweet spot, which really affected my control and power. When I did manage to hit in the sweet spot, the racquet itself doesn’t provide much power. Will be looking for a frame with a large head size that will allow for additional power while still maintaining control.
I just finished demo'ing this racquet along with a couple of others, one Wilson and one other Head. I really liked this racquet and chose to purchase it. I was looking for a racquet to help reduce my elbow pain and it certainly appears that this will help. The racquet is light and flexible and allows me to take a full rip at the ball.
After an up and down season using the pro staff 90, I have decided to go with something a little more arm friendly. Easier on the arm, strong access to maneuverability, and crisp pop when hit within the strikezone, are all characteristics I can feel when playing with this frame. I love the look, like that I can add at least 5mph on my serve, and enjoy that it is nice and light in order to work on my strokes and produce a cleaner struck ball upon impact. Already I have popped about 6 balls in the past two weeks of play, so the head speed I can produce with this racquet is there. It might lack some plow compared to previous models, but I was in the market for a lighter stick around 11oz strung so it still feels pretty strong. I think it will help exaggerate my groundstrokes in a positive manner. The only downside to me is the change to an open string pattern because I know it will be a lot easier to break strings. All in all, happy to play with a head midsize racquet again!
