I played with the Asics 116 demo racquet after reading about how spin friendly the racquet is and the large sweet spot. I am a 3.5 69 year old player who plays mostly doubles now, both from the baseline and the net. I found this racquet to be very easy to hit and was pleased with the spin I got from the baseline. It's power is average, but enough depending on the strings. Net play was ok, but I liked the Wilson Steam 105 better at the net. Overall, the racquet is worth the money and I would consider buying it if I had not purchased the Wilson Steam 105.
