    It's like butter baby. This thing feels great. What other racquets have a similar feel with a slightly smaller head(-95)? I got a free demo a few days ago and I still have it for a while.

    the mid is an ounce heavier and has a higher swingweight.

    I just completed a demo session with the Diablo MP. What is the optimal string setup for an all-court player.


    I was thinking installing Bow gut 17g or Babolat Excell 16g.

    Any string or tension suggestions?

    It plays very nicely with exel 16 at 59 lbs. But I need a little more power and have a 4 5/8 in 9.9/10 for $110 + shipping if anyone is interested, or trade for 500 or 300 rdx.

    I demo'd it @ 59lbs. Do you think stringing it @ 63+lb would help to reduce the pop a little bit? I like the soft feel and nice control but I hit long a little too much.

    For me it plays nicely at 59, but I'm in the 4.0 category, so I think going tighter would tame the power a bit. Perfmode, I'll split the difference with you at $95. I am also in Boston so you can save the shipping charges. skiten44@yahoo.com

    I think we might have a deal. Where in Boston are you located? I'm right in the city and I go to BLS.
