    If you're looking, I have a Volkl Catapult V1 FIRE OS. I don't know how much control it has, but it is a rocket launcher.

    Hi,

    I found the 7G strung with Nat Gut was a rocket launcher for me. If that frame was 27.25.. it would have been the perfect frame for me. I just could not adjust to the extra .5. If I was a two hander on the BH side.. I would have loved that frame. I had trouble controling my BH with the 7G.

    Have a good one!

    Steve

    Depending on your level of play you may want to check out the Prince O3 silver...hit with one back in the summer and you can crank serves while still accessing a decent amount of spin...of course it's also a super-light racquet, and thus quite easy to modify if needed...

    There is only one frame that can define "rocket launcher" and that is the N1 force...

    Yeah, I could serve super hard with the N1 Force. Unfortunately, on groundstrokes I couldn't keep the ball in. :)
