    Look at the grommets, the skipped holes doesn't have an groove going vertical. Hope that helps.

    Max, what did you string yours with? How does it hit?

    i first played with it about a year ago and pulled it out of my bag yesterday while playing. I decided to give it a try and i was playing really well. 2 games into the match i broke 3 of the mains. I am getting it strung right now with pro supex big ace mains and babolat xcel power crosses.

    I strung it with some OG sheep micro at 60. It plays really well, quite a bit different from my AG200's. Its fun to keep in my bag, I've already beaten a little punk up at the club, toting 5 or 6 Aeropro Drives around. I challenged him and said " I bet I can beat you with a 25 year old racquet". 6-4, 6-2. It was all in good fun, as were both on the team, but its good to put the kids in their place sometimes.

    :)

    Good for you!! Try adding around 4 grams of lead at 10/2. You can really feel the racquet drive the ball with a bit more SW. Have fun with the new toy.

    I would lead it up, but my lead supply is currently running low because I'm trying to get all of my racquets up to the 14.3 oz of my aerogels. I've still got my Muscleweave to go. but I'll give it a shot.
