Can someone please tell me how in any way the 98 is any different from the 105? I mean like playability wise, do they play alike or are they totally different? Also how much bigger is the sweet spot in the 105 compared to the 98?

I haven't hit with these, but typically the 98 would have slightly better control with less power. I know this is the case with most racquets.

The TW review on the two sizes claimed that the larger one didn't have the typical drawbacks we'd expect in an oversize-ish head. It made me curious because 95-98 is as large as I'd assume I could stand. Demoed the 98 and liked it enough that if I find a cheap used one in 4 5/8", I'll probably get it.

I have the 98, good control, good spin, very comfortable, but its almost impossible to hit with a lot of power. I dont know what it is, but its hard to rip the ball like you can with other frames. That said it is very solid all around and great on serve.

I'm curious to know how the 105" compares to POG OS, if anyone can add to that?

The 105" plays nothing like the POG...it's more dampened and has less power/feel...probably due to its lighter weight (1/2 oz less that POG). The Fisher is more maneuverable though.

Less power? Wow, I thought the POG OS was pretty low powered - I was kinda expecting the M Speed 105 to have a little more power...

I second this, but will add that you can rip the ball if you have good form and the ability to generate tremendous racquet head speed. I really like the racquet because of the control it gives me to use my angles. But, I know that when I decide to try and turn up the heat, the control is still there. I've hit a couple of tremendous forehands and backhands.

I think that the one word to describe either MSpeed is comfortable.

The POG has an open string pattern (fewer strings).

The Fischer is a very flexible racquet, so it doesn't have a lot of power. But, that's not a bad thing, if you hit efficiently. I saw a non-buff female pro hit quite hard with one.

I'm trying to think of a racquet that won't generate good power if you have good form and generate tremendous racquet head speed. Can't. I also found the 105 less powerful than the POG, which seems not at all surprising to me -- it has less mass, less stiffness, and a smaller head size.
