I am so happy I purchased this racket. I was developing tennis elbow. This racket is a real gem. After demoing several rackets I decided this was "THE ONE." I am so happy with this racket. Put Wilson NXT 17g at 55 lbs. and my tennis elbow if virtually gone! Tonight was my 3rd time hitting with it and it seems like every shoot was in the sweet spot. My regular hitting partner even commented on how well it was hitting the ball. I'm a new Volkl fan for sure!
