This was actually a pretty good racquet. It is very HH which takes some getting used to but stability is good and spin control is quite good. I was hitting my forehand very well with this racquet. Serve was ok but not great. Backhand was not so good. I think this racquet is the best sub 300 gram racquet I have tried. Another 10 years and I'll be playing with a racquet like this I think hehe.
