TW has 1 in their Power Angle racquet section. Anyone ever use this racquet before? I would imagine that if the diagonal string pattern was actually superior then they would make more racquets.

So...what's the deal with this racquet anyways?

Oh, really? Anything else you'd like to add? I might just demo 1 because that string pattern intrigues me to no end :P

I used 98/K for a year. Great control/spin. Very low power

i bet the average player would at best be able to play their normal game with it.

Yea...I don't have a clue what the racquet is like from those replies lol. I guess not many people actually own it.

I wonder if it truly sucks or if everyone's afraid to try it. I guess I will demo 1 and post back about the Power Angle racquet.

Mad Raq was the company.

Owner of company is the same, a Doctor's wife in Scarsdale, NY Stick is hard to string, but has fantastic combo of spin and control. Very low SW

Extremely low swing weight. Can generate incredible racquet head speeds. Low power. Good spin and control. Deep volleys are difficult. Pain to string. Best racquet for Tennis Elbow that I have ever come across. Thought TW had stopped carrying them.

I have mine strung with VS gut and have power restored. The string also lasts forever as it doesn't move around as much. Bob

Power Angle is coming out with a new line of sticks later in the 2008 calendar year. At that time there will be multiple models from which to select.

Hybrid stringing seems like it would be interesting on this racquet since both sets of strings would contribute equally to the overall feel unlike traditional racquets.

I have no idea how a hybrid could be achieved. The pattern is a one piece pattern and I don't see how two pieces would work on these racquets. I do not believe a hybrid is possible.
