Had this racket strung with the Hurricane Feel (free upgrade) and for me, it works wonders. Obviously so much of the result is relative to the player, but I can say that this is a fantastic racket. Very comfortable, with a decent amount of power and control.
After reading the reviews, I purchased this racquet. I am a power hitter and slicer, and it gives me such better control of the ball. I invested the extra and got the hybrid strings (if your spending money on a great racquet, get a great set of strings!) My game has improved over the last week of playing with it. Super happy with the purchases!
Great Racquet with effortless power and feel.
Racquet was on sale so this is a 2nd (backup purchase). My son and I both love Babolat.
I'm still fairly new to the game and am unsure in which specific way this racquet has helped...but essentially all aspects of my game have been better since upgrading from my Head Liquidmetal 8. Ground strokes feel more crisp and consistent, my serve has picked up more spin (could be string related: HYBRID RPM Blast 17/VS Gut 16) and control, and my backhand feels more polished. The only part that I haven't mastered with this racquet is the touch at the net. I'm very happy with my purchase and feel like I got a great deal from Midwest Sports...thx!
