The classic Response 97, with its 12 ounce weight, head light balance and all graphite layup is packed with plow through. From the baseline this one feels rock solid. Advanced players looking to exchange heavy balls loaded with spin, precision and mass based power should love this one. For all its weight though, the Response 97 remains remarkably swingable. With its head light balance and manageable swingweight (322 RDC), big hitters will be able to swing this one fast and whip up some serious spin and power. At net the Classic Response 97 is like a brick wall, unphased by pace. Our TW playtesters found the extra stability especially useful when stretched out, where hard shots were redirected with surprising ease. All in all, this is one of those timeless player's sticks that gives advanced ball strikers all the ingredients needed to play at a very high level.
