    I generally give demos a chance, but put the Impact down after about two minutes. Had a strange muted feel, felt unstable despite the metal ingots hanging off the sides, and I didn't feel much control. I didn't love two other Fischers I tried but at least felt I could control the ball with them. Most posts from Fischer aFischianados seem to have a low opinion about the Impact compared with the rest of the line.

    True. Gamma/Fischer has swayed with the prevailing wind to branch away from player's rackets, its former claim to very limited fame. The intended audience of an Impact and #1 FT will not be awed by the lack of stability 295 grms affords against heavy balls. Fully half the Fischer line now is "hit and giggle" and shelf appeal. Gamma elected to import lighter versions for the U.S. market to compete with Babolat's PD. Its soundest tweener is the budget Smash Ti, but that one is a cheapened version of the white GDS 300 without the GDS (handle)!
