Comments: This racquet is strange type because it really does not belong in any of the usual categories. I can't recommend it to a beginner and neither to an intermediate or advanced player. It is very light and not in a good way. Who needs a racket below 9 ounces? The sweet spot is tiny and due to its weight it has huge problems of stability. If you hit a ball a little off center it will twist and jump like on electroshocks. It so light that there is not much you can do to customize it. It doesn't make sense to add 30 grams of lead. On the positive side, it is very spin friendly and serves are great due to fact that you can swing at it like a samurai sword. Volleys on the other hand are a nightmare.

Comments: This is a wonderful racket! My serves were faster, my accuracy of shots increased, and on top of that, this racket is powerful. Great racket for volleys, too. For those of you who prefer the lighter racket, this is the one for you!

Comments: I have been working with the racquet this summer and over all it is a solid performer. I had the racquet restrung with the new RPM Blast 17g 58lbs and it really grips the ball for additional spin. Sweet spot is a little small and you feel and hear it if you hit off center. Overall a good racquet but look for one with a little more of a sweet spot or forgiveness if you don't hit it dead on 90% or more.

Comments: I have demoed approximately a dozen light weight racquets. This racquet has very nice bite so it does a great job at producing spin. It is extremely fast, so net play is great. I have never found a racquet that is as accurate on serves as this! It has great pop during service because of the ease of generating speed. The big drawback is it does not stand up well receiving fast serves. It is more stable then you would think and does as well as any other midsize light weight racquet. I have shoulder and elbow troubles and this racquet makes swinging with speed a breeze. All in all IF you do not have to face a big serve then this is a racquet you cannot go wrong with.
