I am currently using the Tour 10V-E MP--modified grommets. After reading your threads and doing some thinking, I decided to give the DNX 8 a whirl because I wanted a bit more pop on my serve. I was impressed with its power from the ground and on the serve. However, I could not generate the type of kick that I normally hit with my VE, granted that the demo used 16g NXT whereas I hybrided 17 Klip Legend. I have only played with it on a limited basis though. I have also played previously with the Pure Drive until my wrist started hurting. My questions are: 1. Has anyone hit with the DNX8 long enough to believe that it will less likely cause wrist and shoulder problems? 2. Should I demo/wait longer for more extensive reviews of this racquet or go ahead and dive into the frenzy of the DNX8 rave? I have a tournament this weekend and would like to use my own gut setup if I decide to go with this racquet, but I would like some inputs. Thanks.
