    Perplexing indeed. It's still one of the most comfortable racquet I've played with as TW's high comfort rating was what lead me to the EP2.0 to begin with. Been looking for something that's elbow friendly but still good with spin and this fits the bill nicely. Its wide body and unique grommet system is what gives it good spin and comfort (even with full poly).

    30 lbs BHBR 17 plays well with this racket.

    Is it 2015? I'm trying to remember when the 2.0 came out--2012?

    zombie post! its interesting how times change, eh? the extreme is the only real contender to the speed for me right now. i think my game could benefit from it. i have a pro which i have used just a little, and just this weekend ordered an MP from a site that has them on sale for the weekend (both IG 2.0s). I am 3.5 trying to break into 4.0 like many here, so not sure which weight I'm gonna like best. my coach doesnt like extremes due the wide beam, but he'll let me use one if I'll just stick with it and stop the racquet revolving door.

    Key word was demoed and demo frames here come with multis. The frame is not great without full poly. Once I figured this out I was all in.

    Swingweight is way too high. Not usable in doubles play. at least for high level doubles

    I'm not bustin your chops at all, I was just doing some background reading on the IG extreme and came across this thread. TW loved the IG 2.0. I think that any kind of springy string in this frame would kill your control.

    some deals out there on this frame, and it's only a 3 yr old model.

    You mean low level doubles. Anyone at a high level can handle this SW. You may want to consider eating protein and lifting weights instead of whining so much about SW and pretending to good at tennis on the internet.

    I'm sure if it was extended length he and his crew might be persuaded to switch from their yonexes.

    no very high level doubles, and if you are any good in tennis,, you would know MUSCLES doesn't help you swing faster or easier.....lol

    Yeah, at these lighter weight ranges, it doesn't seem like SW would matter that much. I dont' think I'm gonna gripe someone out about it though.

    He's complained about SW a million times already. It gets old to read. See the many Babolat Pure Aero threads for reference. So when he says he plays high level doubles, its just overkill and borderline trolling.

    Again, anyone who plays high level tennis can handle a 325 SW.

    Plus the newest version of this frame is balanced even more hl at 7 pts. So there is no reason it can not be used in doubles.
