I grew up playing tennis in the 80s when frames were heavier. I have recently been playing with a Babolat AeroPro Drive and felt unable to get enough drive on the ball due to its lightness. I demoed the Prince Response and really appreciated the weight of the frame and the 97 in. head. I'm a 4.5 player with a one-handed backhand. This frame provides nice plow-through with great control and feel. My backhand feels rock solid with and the 12 oz. weight is not too much to cause fatigue in long matches. I highly recommend this frame for players looking for a heavier frame with nice plow-through.
Like the title I thought it was a solid feeling racket. I tried this as a demo and was very excited about it being a prince player when I was younger but knowing this was a release of an older model I wondered if it would stack up against today's modern racket. In my opinion it did with a great feel on ground strokes serve and volley. A little heavier than your average racket but that provided go plow thru. Try it out!
