I bought this racquet primarily because it was on sale (closeout) and it seemed like a minimum expenditure even if I didn't turn out to like it. I strung it with Technifibre Red code in the mains and TF Multifeel in the crosses. This racquet has to have a swingweight in the upper 330s, not what is reported here. It is not as easy to whip through as the slightly heavier 6.1 95. The racquet is a little stiffer than the 6.1 95, too. It still imparts good spin for a fairly dense string pattern (with only 96 sq in face), so long as you can swing it fast enough. Definitely improved my backhand slice, with more depth and penetration, but the forehand suffers due to the swingweight. This will not be my go-to racquet, although I'm still going to try it out a little longer. The 6.1 95 is just a better racquet.
I loved the racket the first time i used it to the last.
I previously have been using an aero pro drive, but the aero did not have as much control or spin as the Wilson juice pro blx. It provides plenty of power and is easy to swing. (not the best for people with tennis problems considering the frame is stiff and the racket is on the heavier side). I recommend using a power string such as Wilson champions choice. Or if that is a little to expensive, RPM Blast will have a similar power level a well.
This racquet requires an intuitive level of play in order to bring out its full potential. It then unleashes a fury of spin painting every line from every angle possible.
Initially I bought it because it was cheap but the had second thoughts. For the way it looks, it seems like a gimmicky claim. But with the way it plays, I could not believe how much of a difference a racquet of this quality can make in gameplay.
A hybrid setup seems ideal for this racquet for maximum spin and control.
