I've just come into this racquet with leather grip. And before I hit with it too much would like to know how it is on arm and any other characteristics. Appreciate any comment.
thanx- keene@roadrunner.com

I've not hit with it, but off websites and such i have seen the specs. It is around 12 oz with a flex rating in the high 50s. It should be a fairly arm friendly racquet.

That sounds like a nice racquet. Hope it plays well for you!

I demoed the 93" version of the Type C from TW a while back. It performed as you would expect from the specs above -- a very smooth and comfortable hit (that nice 80 graphite/20 kevlar composition). Excellent build quality.

For me, the main downer was the high swingweight. I couldn't get past that. Also, I would have liked it better with a 16x19 string pattern. Otherwise, I probably would have popped for one.

Thanx for the input. Yes swingweight could wear one out, but I'll probably enjoy it for short periods. Didn't know it had that low a flex #. Thanx again guys.
