I have never like heavy racquets. But the 10.1 Speed Elite is the lightest racquet I have ever loved. I feel like I can get so much racquet head speed and generate tons of topspin. Is it unheard of for a heavy hitter to use such a light racquet?

What is the lightest racquet you would ever see a pro use?

go for it. the wilson n-blade was light and lots of players used it without lead at the ncaa ranks. top women players of course using light racquets. Some men as well. I think a few were using one of the light hyper pro staff models but they probably were putting some lead on it.

according to TW, the Elite has a pretty hefty swingweight of 342. That's not "light".

as long as you're comfortable and you like it, i don't think it matters how light it is.
