I am a player who likes to hit from the baseline with lots of spin. When I demo’ed this racquet, I knew it was going to be a great fit. This racquet has an exceptional feel to it and is very flexible. While it has plenty of feel and control to it, this racquet also carries enough power and stability to hit hard from the baseline to get the shots as deep as you’d like. Not only is this a powerful racquet from the baseline, it is incredibly solid at the net. Despite the 98inch head size, the sweet spot seems to be large and forgiving. The regular version as opposed to the lighter was definitely the winner for me. I strung mine up with RPM Blast at 53lbs.
I am a 40 year old 4.5 player and I have been playing the 2012 version of Wilson's Six One 95 for several years until switching to this racquet a few months ago. This racquet is about 1 oz lighter than my Wilson, but still in the range most pros are playing nowadays. This lighter racquet is also a bit less stiff and is easier on the arm for sure, and all in all it is as solid and stable as any racquet I have ever played. The switch definitely comes with an adjustment to a new feel, which is always the case, but I really like this stick all around. I find my consistency and depth are improved generally, and when I am late or out of position this racquet is very forgiving. I am playing this with luxilon ALU power in the mains and gamma tnt in the crosses. Works perfectly for me. I just ordered a second.
A little like a dampened, quieter Aeropro Drive. Sweet spot is smaller but when you hit it you knew it and it felt good. Head size and shape made volleys a little tougher than my usual racquet and slice does not seem to be a strong point of this racquet
SOLID FEEL & SWEETSPOT . GET PAST THE SHAPE OF THE HEAD AND YOU WILL BE ON BOARD WITH THIS GAME CHANGER
Great stick with a good balance. I'm a 5.0 former college player who was looking for a stick with an open pattern that was solid, but not as heavy or stiff as traditional player racquets like the wilson blade or head prestige. I thought it had a great all around feel, good access to spin, solid on groundies while also holding its own at net. Put a poly like ALU power in it and you're all set.
