I played with it several times. I do not like sub 11oz racquets but nPS is great. It is very stable and it can produce a lot of spin for 18x20. It is light (10.2 unstrung static weight) but you will feel every single gram of it due to even balance. I think that sw is around 320. It is super-comfy. The throat is flexy (the head is not and that is exactly why I like it) and the feeling is great.

really do appreciate the reply bobFL..
on the thread on playing comparisons,i came to same
conclusion as the tester,where i felt it could use a bit
more weight on the throat n the grip,personally speaking
from demoing it..
do u think leading it would help?i'm on the verge of getting
it,as i got a great offer for it..;)

Used the nPS for 2 1/2 years. It is a nice stick, flexible and confortable. One word of warning, it is not a forgiving racket, if your timing starts to deteriorate it will drag your game down. That's why I stopped using it. I would play one day brilliantly and the next absolute rubbish... Still one of my favourite rackets, I kept 2 frames in my garage.

scs,i noticed that,after my match was extended to 3 long sets with
an agressive baseliner,my strokes started to suffer considerably..
i dont intend to replace the racket just yet(not until i get the PS original
back),so any remedies for this issue?:(

hmmm, I have not tried lead tape. I do not believe that tape would do any good. SW is in 320-325 range which is on the high(er) side. With additional tape you could easily go to 330-335...

bobFL,will adding weight to the handle or grip grossly affect swingweight?

the paint peels off. wouldnt waste time with that racket, its horrible for serves and volleys imo

I do not know about "grossly" but you will definitely add few points (and you will make it more HL).

My experience was quite opposite. My serve was as usual and volleys were great.

i second u on that bobFL,i have a reasonably good
flat 1st serve n the racket works fine..
i'm pretty much a classic serve n volley guy to a fault,
but since i'm a skinny dude,ii'd love a bit more touch
at the net..
