I demoed this racquet recently and I liked it a lot. There was a lot of control and it was very comfortable. Much closer to my favorite racquet of the past, the RDX 500 then the other racquets that have been released by yonex. Lots of control especially and there was much more feel with this racquet. My only issue was putting a little extra on the forehand. This may have more to do with the grip size and the strings then the racquet. Seriously considering buying this racquet.
