i recently went from a classic, heavier 12+ oz. racket to one suited for the modern game. love this racket; can really tee off from the baseline without worrying about hitting the ball long. opens up a wider variety of angles on the ground. only downside is that the racket is a little stiff (but much less so than the previous gt version) and is hard on my shoulder.
I feel like I'm Nadal when I played with this racquet. You definitely feel the weight difference, this being over 11 oz when strung. Feels like I get better control especially with the forehand topspin. Because of the weight, I felt my serve being affected. I think it slows down my service swing. Would I play with this? Yes, but I would like to try a lighter version first.
Demo-Ed this racket because I wanted a heavier racket. Very solid , good volley racket. All the weight is in handle. I think I need a more evenly weighted racket. Had a very good feel at net.
