I tested this racket by accident and loved it from the first swing. I'd never played a head heavy racket before because I wanted my racket to be quick around the net. This one is and has the added benefit of pulling your ground strokes through with the head heavy balance. The racket is still very light and playable. You also don't have to worry about swinging too hard because the firmness lets you take a full swing. And it looks cool too! :)
What I really like about this racquet is how fast I can move it/swing it/manipulate it to respond to all incoming shots. It also has a good feel to it in terms of doing those touch shots. It came prestrung with Prince Syn Gut Duraflex 17. Not sure I like this choice. I will try it with a good multi-filament like Wilson NXT 17 when the current string wears out.
