Comments: My main rackets is the Wilson k-six-one tour, but I previously used the Wilson Six-two, and loved the 100 square inch head-size, thick-beam and the weight around the mid 10ounces that that racket provided. So I decided to demo this one since it had similar specs that I liked but was a brand that I had never tried. So for me it felt weird because I had gotten used to the by small head-size and weight which I put from 12.5 to 13oz on my k-90. But after a bit of adjustment this racket felt insanely great and had easy power access, and easy was good on my serve-and-volley game and was good on my two-handed volleys. For a 3.5 player this is 100000% the racket that you should be using. I won't be using it for the u-15 provincial tournaments coming-up soon, but will be buying one as a racket that I will carry around for when I get tired of swinging that my heavier racket.
Comments: I usually use a Dunlop 200 (MFIL then AeroGel) so trying this out it had quite a zing in its power level. That was nice. The only problem is that when I'm up against a heavy hitter I felt like the frame would deform a bit leaving my high and dry in low percentage shots. I had to play it a bit safer. Its not a bad racket by any means and if you're looking to replace an older control oriented Dunlop then give this a demo.
Comments: This racquet rocks! I have the m-Fil 400 and love it. So when I had a chance to get a Smoke for cheap, I went for it. It swings smoothly and despite the stiffness rating, is quite maneuverable, and has great control and a nice amount of power (not too much, not too little). It's a bit more forgiving on mishits than the m-Fil 400. If you are a flat hitter, you'll like the pace, control, and stability that comes with the Smoke. If you like to hit for heavy topspin, this works quite well (about as well as the m-Fil 400), though in my opinion it's not as topspin friendly as the m-Fil 200+ or Dunlop RG Racing. In short, if you want a fairly lightweight misplus racquet that gives you a solid balance of power and control, spin and flat-hitting capability, pop on your serve, stable and can stroke with confidence... all without straining your arm, this racquet could be it.
Comments: Just my two cents worth for anyone interested in buying this racquet. It felt really tiny. Probably the micro gel. It felt really vague and lifeless. Coming from a wood backround Iíve always looked for an "alive " racquet with soul that might not make sense to some, but others will know what I mean. Iíve heard good things about the Fischer racquets. So theyíre next on the list. Power was good with the Dunlop, control was marginal. Demo before buy.
