As a maturing tennis player, I was in search for a more playable yet versatile racket, trying to give up my old 340some gm mid size tour. After wandering through many brands I ran into this racket, borrowed from a friend when I did not have my racket on a trip. Now that I own one, it meant nirvana for an aging 4/4.5 player. Well balanced, powerful and accommodates fast strokes yet lighter than a tour racket at 305 gm unstrung. I will be stocking on this!
I recently got back into tennis and found that I was using a racquet that was too light and too head light. After trial and error with a few models, I really like this one. Midwest was great at giving me advice on the strings, tension, etc. Very positive experience.
