    I got a good deal on these racquets and since I like flexible OS players racquets (which I believe these are, or hope atleast) I went for it. I just strung one but havent hit with it yet.
    It weighs 323 g strung with the small gamma dampener that came with the racquet. I strung it with Gosen micro 17g strings at 55 lbs. Balance with dampener is 7.5 points HL.
    Curious to see how it plays and I wonder how many are using have used opr tried this racquet and what are your impressions?

    I ordered a demo from TW right after the racquet was released. It was flexy feeling, solid, powerful, and quite comfortable. I sent the demo back and placed an order. The frame I received was within a couple of grams in weight and a half point in balance compared to the demo but played significantly different. It was stiff, hollow feeling and felt in general, crappy. I got rid of it and have not hit with another Gamma frame since.

    I see. That is a really annoying problem. Before I went on my current racquet buying frenzy I played with wilson ps tour 90 of which I had matched racquets. Since then I have bought, traded and recieved several racquets and basically all models vary alot from frame to frame. Right now I use PK type R and the 2 frames I have are also quite different although I like them both.

    Played some more with the Ipex today and I like it alot. Probably my second favourite racquet right now. Best OS I have tried. A little on the light side but thats a good thing as it leaves more room for personal customization. Superb spin!

    They have been already out for at least 3-4 weeks. I have seen them on other websites for sale and I assume TW will be getting them soon. You can look them up on the gamma website.
