Yes I was at the Nottingham Open today and saw all the Powerbridge models. Very sweet graphics and fine looking. Having a long hit with the PB10 tomorrow will post review then. These rackets will go on sale in the UK late July. The PB10 is 18/20 and 325gm, DNX is still at 3&9 as well as in bridge. Also Becker is coming out with more new frames called the Delta Core very interesting features. The PB10 is currently scheduled to sell for about 150 ere in UK. Also they are going to produce a 295gm version with 16/19 pattern and should be out about same time frame. Hope this helps will post more as i get info.

I thought that the Pb10 (295g version) is 18x20...

No according to the Rep the sales for the 295 are for the junior groups. The 16/19 gives alittle more power and spin potential which they like. Sales in the UK of the Becker 11 lite 295 16/19 were some of the best they have seen in the past years. Hence following the same lines with the PB10.

That makes sense. A lighter, flexy low powered frame with an 18x20 stringbed would be hard to generate power with even for many non Juniors. I think that could have been the problem with the Dnx10MP 295 grams. The B11Light played very well for me with lead on the grip collar cuff and at 3 and 9. This will likely be along the lines of the 11Light, but perhaps a bit more juioce w. the Powerbridge
