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!
