Just hit briefly with BB 11 and Fischer M Comp 95.

BB 11:
- heavy, stable, flexy, large sweetspot
- hits very similar to Yonex 002 Tour SL, the difference being that BB11 was a bit more flexy (but yonnie in my opinion is more flexible than TW rating of 65), the yonnie is slightly more maneuverable (maybe that tapering of the frame at 3 and 9 o-clock really works?) and is noticeably more headlight. Both have similar power and both have a slightly metallic, although not really unpleasant hit.
- also as others have noted, the grip is way too spongy.
- if I had to choose between 002 Tour sl and BB11, I favor the yonnie.

Fischer M Comp 95:
- another heavy, stable, solid stick.
- felt that this was strung too tight (TNT 16) and this may have played a role, but to me this stick is much stiffer than 59 rating. In fact this stick reminded me of my old POG mid, which I think itself feels stiffer than its 66 rating!
- although sw is same as BB11, the fischer for me was easier to get around.
- exactly 27 inches, not 1/8 inch short like other fischer's (ie mag tour)
- if I had to choose between M Comp 95 and POG mid, it would be the M Comp. Less jarring and less prone to twisting on mishits. I like more flexy racquets, but the M Comp in many ways is a nice upgrade to POG mid, especially if you're looking to go from 90 to 95 headsize.

These are initial thoughts and I will try to update later after a couple of more sessions. Me: long strokes, eastern FH, IHBH, currently using RDX 500 mid and looking to go up in headsize as I get older.:-)

Fischer M Comp 95

I also got this as a demo. I too felt that it was stung too tightly (TNT 16 Fat Core). Certainly felt stiffer than a 59 but it may have been the stringing as mentioned. 68 sounds about right for what it felt like to me but I do suspect the stringing to play a role. Its very comfortable, stable, solid and yes, heavy. I found it quite maneuverable all things considered. In hand it feels like the K6195 more or less - very close - just not quite as head light. I prefer the 16x19 stringbed over the 16x18.

Serves for me were very accurate with pace. Decent spin. I know there's more pace to be had from it and I was quite pleased. Volleys were otherworldly. Its a dream at the net for me because its rock solid and volleys anything thrown at me with both precision and stability. Perfect touch and feel from the racqueet and I want to try gut on it. I also had great success on returns, a number surprising me. Groundstrokes seem fine, but I am still adjusting and think the strings are playing a role in quite a drop in power here. On the whole Fischer racquets are pretty low powered. Again - strung too tighly for me. Laser-sighted accuracy though.

Despite some suspicion on string tension and the fact that I had to demo with a grip 2 sizes too small, I ended up buying it over the K6195 which was its other main contender in the demos I had. Mine's coming strung with gut and not quite as tightly. Cant wait for it. That'll really tell me what I ended up with lol but I prefer it to the K even as was.

if the BB11 is very similar to T10 MP, i could spare this one and wait for a mid size if any.

Thanks for the reviews. I have not found another stick that hits like the RDX 500 Mid. The RDX 500 Mid has a unique, smooth feel that is unparalleled.

Hi Guys thanks for the reviews which were great on the Fischer M Comp 95. I know I'm greedy but I want more more more more!!! Please could somebody who has hit with one give me an in depth Forehand backhand serve return volley stability spin etc review. I currently use Ncode tour 90 and am looking for something that gives me some heft and plow through but that is more forgiving when I'm not 100% ON - please help -

thanks guys. I made so many unsuitable efforts at replacing my rackets that i need your help as i think the m comp might be "it" but I hate flexy rackets and the flex rating worried me, although i am intrigued by people saying it feels stiffer than its rating ??
