    for those of you who've hit with it, what are your thoughts on comfort, power, and control? i'm especially interested in the comfort level. -thanks

    If you do a search, you'll find all that you seek.

    And, yes, it is quite comfortable.

    Yeah I was curious about this racquet too. TW had it rated pretty high.

    How is this racquet compared to the K95 16x18?

    Check plus for comfort... maybe even a gold star, too.

    Low powered which is to be expected in a flexible racquet, but so far I haven't been able to goose the pop out of this frame that I want when I go to net or block a return of serve. In the realm of softer frames, both the NXG mid and midplus as well as the Volkl C10 have given me better all court performance, but I adore this Donnay at the baseline. Still looking for my favorite string setup in it and right now I really like a crisp 17 ga. multi in mine up near the top of the tension range - tried lower tensions and they were too funky.
