Comments: Wow! Bought this one on sale and let me tell you, this is one solid stick. By look and spec it is
comparable to something like Blade 98 but after some modification plays way more solid and stable with more consistent
stringbed response. It's a nice frame in stock form for a junior or a beginner, but you can really let the beast out with about 6
grams of lead spanning from 10 to 2, leather grip + og, Solinco TourBite 16 at 54lbs. Now this stick is slightly HL, 11.7 oz and
340+ swingweight. Tons of spin, consistent response throughout the stringbed and perfect blend of power and control. If know
what to do with a beast like this go ahead and order 2 right now -- you can't do better at any price point.
Comments: I wanted the bag and then ordered the racquet, which came with the bag. Sweet deal. I played with the
racquet earlier this evening, and my first impression is: Wow! I was looking for a lighter racquet that wouldn't kill my arm. To
summarize, I was able to hit deep, with pace and topspin, and to get very interesting angles on the forehand. The serve started to
kick in mid-set, the volleys came in a natural way, and maybe I should stop here (I don't want to jinx it). The racquet felt good on
the arm, but I'll know better in a week or so. Something else: the racquet was quite forgiving on off-centre hits, and I didn't feel
any jarring vibration. However, I think the strings played a role in this great experience: Volkl V-Blast 17, with V-Icon: Natural Gut
in the mains at 50lbs and V-Feel: Multifilament at 46lbs in the crosses.
Comments: Really pleasantly surprised by this racquet. Whilst it is quite light (mine is 310g strung), the 329 SW and
balance gives it a solid feeling on contact and a feeling of good mass on impact. I think the weight in the hoop is a good thing.
Groundstrokes are very good and consistent, volleys are nice, serves are very good too. Did not expect to like the spec, but tried it
on a whim and loved it. Stats aren't everything!
Comments: As a 4.0 all court player, I found there was not enough weight in stock form. For me, adding
to the handle to get to 340 grams makes this stick perform much better! Now it has nice heft and enough punch to keep the balls
deep. Plus making it more HL helps with the volleys. Put in your favorite spin type string and string it low (53-54)
to make the serves pop. If you like to customize your sticks, this is a great racquet to start with.
