First new raquet in 11 years coming from a Head TiS5 but pretty disappointed. I thought the O hole technology would create plenty of sweet spot zip but sadly racquet feels kind of lifeless. It did not provide me with the additional help my ageing body needed - it was pretty unresponsive and I found it hard to generate much spin either topspin, slice or kick off the serve. It may be due to the player, tension, dampening grommets or string choice but I wouldn't recommend it for an older style player who is looking for a little more help ie. response and zip in his play.
This racquet is one that I would recommend to any level of player because it controls great and is very durable. The only thing is that it is a little handle heavy so you should work on your head speed a bit to make it balanced.
