I finally received my four demo racquets on Monday: Prince Diablo Mid, Prince Diablo Midplus, Volkl Tour 10 Midplus, and Head LM Prestige Midplus. Below you will find my impressions of each after a total of 5 hours of play. Volkl Tour 10 Midplus: wonderful feel - especially on slice backhands; horrible serving racquet as far as power is concerned - decent kick; it may be the 5 pts HL (compared to the 8 pts I’m used to) but the racquet seemed a little slower than it’s weight would indicate; volleys offered fantastic touch but with little power to put the ball away; fabulous slice and very good topspin; control is excellent - probably the best of the four; but as good as this racquet is, for some reason, it just doesn’t feel like it’s the racquet for me - I really can’t explain it but I’m just not comfortable with it...although this may change with the 15 hours I plan to play with the four racquets between now and Sunday. Head LM Prestige Midplus: VERY flexible feeling racquet - reminded me of the Rossignol F200 in a way - you can just feel the racquet go back and then come through the ball; I got a very inconsistent response off the face of this racquet - it seemed I could make the same swing and one would be hit for a winner and the other land 5 feet long; the handle felt strange - like the top and bottom were a lot longer (less square I guess you’d say) than the sides - something I haven’t been able to get used to quite yet; wonderful slice - it really stayed low; decent topspin - nowhere that of either of the other three racquets but pretty good for the string pattern; control on serves was very good with decent power if you go for it; volleys were fair, again the flex seemed a little unusual feeling at the net as did the handle - I’ve had many Head Radicals but I never felt like the grip was so awkward. Prince Diablo Midplus: best serving racquet of the bunch - great power and control - although kick serves didn’t have as much oomph as with the mid; amazing at net - every volley I hit seemed to be hit in the center of the racquet (even though it wasn’t) - very good touch (the mid had a little better touch) - excellent putaway power; for the first set I played with it I seemed to be a little slow on my forehand (could have been the extra 1/4”) and after about a set and a half my forearm was feeling a little fatigued; at times I lost that solid feel on groundstrokes, usually when I try to hit topspin without being aggressive - ball tends to land real short; gave me tremendous confidence when hitting returns - I was aggressive and really swung through the ball getting penetrating groundstrokes; dropshots were better than average - not as good as my POG mid or the Diablo Mid, but still decent Prince Diablo Mid: it does feel very similar to my POG mid except the feel is a little more subdued (ie: I can’t feel the ball on the strings quite as well with the Diablo) - at times though this lends itself to a little more solid feel, especially on hitting flat groundstrokes; topspin is excellent but maybe just a hair below that of the POG mid; serves are very good with this racquet - both flat and kickers - more control than with the Diablo midplus; as great as the Diablo Midplus was on groundstrokes, the Diablo mid was even better - this racquet allows you to have every shot in the book - slice returns (down the line or crosscourt) - lobs were perfect (used this a lot when I was playing against two guys - Australian I believe it’s called) - topspin returns offered great control - but my favorite was the flat ball, my aggressive forehand return was as good as it’s ever been, I was crushing the ball...flat, hard, clearing the net by about a foot...WOW; this is my favorite racquet of the bunch so far. Right now I really like both the Diablo Mid and the Diablo Midplus. The Diablo Midplus is heads above the other three in terms of netplay (and a little better in serve) but the Diablo Mid seems to be above the other three in everything else. Both the Diablos have A LOT to offer. I’ll try to put up a final review next week. Benjamin PS: again, these are MY OPINIONS, your results will vary.
