I absolutely love this racket-it's weight, feel, spin potential, maneuverability, etc. It is not an inherently powerful racket but does offer a 325 swing weight. I put Babolat Hurrican Tour 17 in it--doesn't feel good. I don't like the plasticy coating on the string. I want a powerful, crisp string--17 or 18 guage. I want to maximize the power as the control is great. Thanks for any suggestions.
