What a nice surprise this racquet was. I have to say the control was alot better than I expected from the racquet. I cant say I really felt the catapults but of course I havent hit with a V1 without them. I felt the catapult the most when I strung the racquet. Which by the way was done with SPPP 1.18 at 50 lbs. The combination of maneuverability, power, control and stability in this frame is among the best I have experienced. Comfort level was quite high too. Perhaps not as comfortable as my PK ki 15 with lead that weighs about the same (313 g with overgrip and dampener). But the V1 outshines the ki 15 in the control department by a mile. I see now why these racquets are said to be some of the best all round racquets around. Could really suit anybody. Now I feel I have to try some of the other V1 aswell. Anyone who tried this racquet and didnt like it?
