Yes, this racquet is the best! Been playing with it (or its previous versions) for at least 5 years. Get yourself some RPM Blast 17 strings to go with it.
Great feel and power
I saw this racquet while I was in Florida on vacation in February and after handling it for few minutes knew that I had to get it. After two weeks of playing with it, it's my new fav. Power, good control and my serve has never been better. Also love the fact that my tennis elbow and rotator cuff have had zero problems even after long matches. This racquet is a must have and I'm ordering a second one and ditching my Prince.
Power, control, and feel
I switched to this racquet after more than 10 years with the Prince Thunderstick. My arm had been hurting and this racquet immediately felt better, plus is it has very good power, solid control, and imparts excellent spin. I love its maneuverability and bought a second one from Midwest Sports.
power with control
