This is a great stick. This is the best serving racquet I have ever played with (kinda what you would expect from an Andy Roddick endorsed stick). In the past I have played various Prince and Wilson models but the Pure Drive Roddick plus blows them away on serve. It also provides excellent power and control on groundstrokes. The stiffness of the frame really let's you rip into shots and maintain control of the ball. 5 out of 5 stars!
