Give it a little bit of time to get used to and don't give up on it! It's a sweet stick but it's is a little different. I hated it the first time I hit with it, however I kept playing with it and grew to like it and have been using it for 2 years now :)

i used to use the 315 18*20 and the spin was not that great, i used the 16*19 and the spin was not that great either.

the racket is good, low powered high control, takes alot of time to get used to it, i had to change my swing but after that it was really good. if you have a slow swing don't bother trying this racket.

I've used the 18x20 for the past 18 months or so. I get great spin with it, but not much oomph. I do have a fast swing and agree that you need a fast swing to generate pace or spin or both. Not much for free with the speed. Great racquet for serves though. The 16x19 is more powerful (stiffer, wider beam, slightly longer).

What I don't like about the 18x20 is the lack of stability on off center hits and small feeling sweet spot. Plus it's a little low powered for me.

I've hit with the graphene speed for 4-5 hours and think it's worth waiting for. It fixes the torsional stability issue, has a little more power, plus is more comfortable despite being a bit stiffer (less vibration).

As far as strings I have liked a good multi (x1bp) or gut main/poly hybrid. I don't like it with poly mains or full bed.

String comment refers to the IG 18x20.

I have demoed both racquets so far I like speed better.
The Pro has good control, but there is more power in the speed.
I like the feel and balance of this raquet so I will try it for a couple of
more days.
