    I thought he was using a Radical mold with an Extreme 2.0 PJ. Same thing Djokovic is using.

    You lasted longer than me - I barely lasted a set with it.

    Quite obvious from looking at the shape that this isn't the case, clearly the lollipop shape of the Extreme. Don't know if it is stock or more likely the prostock Extreme mold (there must be a thread on this already?).

    Regarding the Extreme 2.0 - I've largely switched to it and play 5-6 times per week, full bed poly with no arm troubles as yet after about 3 months.

    Edit - here is a picture http://ww1.hdnux.com/photos/22/42/22/4859032/3/628x471.jpg seems pretty round to me, like the Extreme

    He's been using an Extreme mold since the MG version. Whether or not it's a Pro stock, I do not know.

    I want this racket to be my racket of choice out of what I have. Its awesome on groundstrokes.

    Serving it just smashes my arm and shoulder. The weighting of it is strange for slices too.

    extreme pro 2.0

    ah, I just received a demo of extreme pro 2.0.
    I'm going to return it without playing it. It just doesn't worth risking my elbow and wrist.

    Don't. It's an AMAZING racket. Like I am not even kidding, it is one of the best rackets I have ever played with which is why I decided to switch to it. It's just an awesome all around stick, I feel so much more confidence in my groundstrokes and I was just in love with it after playing with it. Excellent spin, amazing control, the balance is weird but that can be fixed with appropriate lead tape. I still need to work on my serves and my slices with it, however I don't expect it to be as great as the Wilson 90 series.

    Pretty sure the racquet alone is not enough to give you some serious tennis elbow.

    Well actually the main problem its giving me is with my wrist, that is weak after breaking it about 4 years ago. I need something with a lower swingweight.

    Tennis elbow kicks in to after a couple of matches. Doesnt with a 285 gram Dunlop.
