    Yes the Soft was a nice bat.. Once i had a few of those and a few years later i had 2 of Moyas personal rackets.. think they may have been Softs in Pure Drive PJ actually.

    sorry to bother you, but could you tell me, for how much would you consider selling one of those, cause I just bought one for just 9 euros(the guy who sold it to me knew nothing about it being classic frame), so I'm very happy to have it in my collection, but if I ever consider selling it how much would you ask for yours?

    I'm sorry, can't answer that one, no RDC in the house. It plays lower then 72 but it is quite a solid stick so it should be somewhere between 66-70 my opinion.

    You are very Lucky indeed! Price is hard to say, all depends what the buyer want to give, they are very rare that's for sure, the first ones were only available in France and were quite limited. Very hard to put a price on...

    thanks for your input, really appreciate it..yeah this one is first gen, with specs listed in France, great find, can't wait to try it out tomorrow, luckly for me and my collection people here in Croatia know hardly anything about racquets, for instance yesterday I swapped my modified Kblade in horrible condition for 10/10 LM RADICAL TOUR..they only appreciate pure drives, aeros and stuff like that, not that those are bad frames, but despite being youger I prefer more traditional frames :))

    Babolat Soft Control, I can only say wow, what a frame, never played with anything quite like that, I'm never selling that thing, the frame is so good, stable, great spin, nice thin beam, awesome feel, just performing well from all areas of the court, unbeliveble, I think I found my Holy Grale :))
