Do a search. This racquet has been reviewed here numerous times.

Which version is ir? pro or standard?
I demoed the non pro and I liked it. Very powerful and quite stable for a light racquet. I can't find a demo of the pro version so I have to decide which one.

I have the pro, I like the feel, crisp, loads of spin, good serving. I know others who don't like the feel at all, one person in particular couldn't describe it, just didn't like it at all.

I typically play with player type racquets with open string patterns, if that helps.

I hit with both, ended up with the extreme ( non pro). Not that the extra 1/4 inch means alot but I think I serve better with it. Then I added some weight to the butt and head , trying to keep the balance where it was. Others on the board think it is to stiff, I have had no problem with it. Coming from the Radical Tour which is extremely flexable.

I've demoed both. First I played with the regular and liked it but my backhand suffered. Then I traded it for the Pro and it felt much more stable and really plows through the ball on serves. I just may buy one...

Either way, great racquet!

I have 2 of the extreme pro and love them. My serve is incredible (I lost 4 total points tonight on my serve (3 double faults) playing 7.5 combo doubles in 6 service games), my forehand has great spin and power, and my backhand isn't any better, but isn't any worse either. Volleys are drastically improved as well. I highly recommend them and think you'll love it. I did find it is very sensitive to string tension/type so it may take a few. I wound up with an 18 gauge polyester main at 63 pounds with syn gut crosses at 58 pounds. When I got it it was 100% 16 gauge syn gut strung at 57 pounds and it was like hitting with a trampoline, hated the thing. Just keep that in mind, it may take a setup or two to get it balanced to your game.

Finally I bought the pro version. I guess the extra weight will bring more stability specially if you play against a hard hitting oponent.
I will try it tomorrow so I'll let you know.

I found the Extreme standard version a little to light and didn't have quite enough of a solid feel for me. I settled with the Microgel Radical instead as it was a little heavier and felt more solid. I was able to produce more spin with the extreme though.

I found the pro version a bit heavy to accelerate, though it's very powerful. Maybe I should try to get used to it, otherwise I'll go for the standard version.
