Has anyone actually hit with this thing and care to comment? If I lived in the USA I'd demo this thing just for entertainment value alone, to see how it'd hit!! :shock:

137" head, 29" long, 408 swingweight, 7 points head heavy!!!

Have not played with it, but have played with a guy who used one (doubles).
Dude was about 6'3" probably in his 60's and still shank the ball expecially when he is moving to the net.
He was the wall around the net - tall guy and a big bubba. It was pretty funny to him move with the big racquet.

I demo'ed this for entertainment when I had an open slot to demo a racquet- only three that I really wanted to demo, so I chose this one for a laugh.

What a racquet! I fell in love! I bought six! The ease, effortless power, and unbelievable comfort!

Not really.

The only way to make the ball land in w/ this thing was to play a pusher's game. Didn't exactly float my boat :evil:

Lol, if you swung hard enough, you could hospitalize someone!


No wonder no one came to net when I was swinging freely... talk about retiring :shock:

i demo'ed one of these as well. Let's just say you get your money's worth in graphite. It had it's 15 mins of fame in the tennis world touted as the most power racquet in industry. Plays like a Wilson Profile but on steroids. Another thing I remembered is that I got no feel on the strings what so ever. Great doubles racquet (during non-serve games)

This racquet is very popular in senior age groups in NE USTA tournaments.

Wouldn't a hell of a lot of spin keep the ball in....

My buddy used to compare a fat girl with a mopad...

Everybody wants to ride one, but nobody wants to seen with one.

That's how I feel about the Big Bubba...
