    I strung one up at 52lbs with Babolat Hurricane Feel. It was ok until I had to do a put away volley to a hard hit passing shot. The racquet's flex plus the stiff string bed caused the frame to bend round and hit me in the face...


    fail. There was some dwell time that allowed me to keep the ball in. But now I have a sizeable bruise under my eye and accross the top part of my nose...
