    NOOOOO!!!!!

    the PB-7 is too light, too flimsy and too unwieldy, just a bit of a piece of something nasty, really...

    investigate the Organix 7s (which Jack won't try 'cos he hates the colour so much!)

    so much better

    Actually the Organix 4 looks more intriguing

    my son used to use those, they are great!!!!!

    very, very light though..

    still have 'em if you're interested, they are pretty kicked around, however.

    Head Pure Competition! Crazy Specs you'll never find again and feels like an extension of your arm. First off 660...second decent weight (12.1 Overgrip and rubber band dampener), Head light, 18x19 pattern, and the kicker FLEXIBLE!

    You'll get some kick from the bigger string bed BUT you won't feel like your wielding a modern hollow board!

    If you can get over the hideous late 90's graphics you'll be pleasantly surprised how good this little known gem is.

    I put my vote on the Kblade Team/Blade Team/ Blade 104.

    From what they say they all play pretty similar,that is if you weight them similar of course.

    Im using the Blade Team,just because it was almost half the price of the new B 104.

    It plays like a 98,but is more forgiving and have lots of control,especially with a control oriented string. Personally i prefer the Rip control 17 so far, tried Rpm blast and wilson sensation too but this is best for me so far.

    I weighted mine to ~328 static and ~322 sw (19g in handle and 6g total at 3&9)

    just a little update.......

    tried the Volkl Organix 7 -310. Decent racquet, but still not as good as the 104 or Gamma Rzr 105.

    My ranking would be:

    1) Wilson Blade 104
    2) Gamma Rzr 105
    3) Volkl PB7
    4) Prince EXO3 Red
    5) Organix 7-310

    Hahaha wow, I was expecting you to be here, JackB1.
    Saw your signature like two days ago and when I saw the title of this thread, I was immediately expecting you to have posted before me, and yes indeed you have, right before me!

    If you can handle the stiffness, the Biomimetic 600 (not the tour or the lite) is one of the most underrated racquets I've ever used. It did everything well for me except protect my shoulder.

    The 600 Tour is even better. But like you said, it's very stiff and it feels it.

    Head MicroGelOS, everything you need except a big flat first serve, but needs a bit of lead at 10-3.
