    Dear BB Pro users

    A lady plans to buy this racquet, and is still reluctant because of its high stiffness rating. A few consumer reviews on TW say it causes no wrist or elbow pain. Can be BB Pro truly considered arm-friendly? Also, what string and tension are you using.

    Thanks!

    I used B Pro racquet while I had a minor hand injury. It was one of the most comfortable frame I used in a long time. A really good shock absorbing system in the handle. I had mine strung with Technifibre NRG at high end of the range ...60lbs, and it felt great. I don't use this frame anymore now that my hand's feeling better, but it is very good frame in my opinion. Hope this helps. Good luck to your lady friend.

    Yes, there are a few of us around but for some reason the BB Pro kind of flew under the radar here. It's a stiff racket but the handle tech diminishes it well so no arm problems.
    I use a hybrid of CB17/PSGD 17 in the high 40s and this stick can be compared to the Pure Drive series - although the Roddick one is much heavier(I added some lead to mine). Excellent controllable power.
