I ordered this racquet for my husband (a 5.0 tennis player) for his birthday. He had previously tried out this racquet and liked it. The website and staff were helpful with choosing string and tension, the racquet was delivered promptly, and we are very pleased with the racquet and the whole shopping experience!
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.
