    What should I expect from this racquet. Read a lot of good stuff about it. Found a used one for $24 so just bought it. Going to hit with it tomorrow. I currently use a MG Radical OS.

    Buttery smooth but underpowered. If you've ever had arm problems this with be golden for you. I had to really take big cuts at every ball to place deep shots. It's a great looking PJ.

    What Orion says is true, I recomend you use either a powerful string or string low. You can do both too if you really want to add alot of pop to it.

    Low powered, flexy as hell, an overall good/great racquet.

    Use Wilson NXT 16 strung at ~55-57. Trust me you will loveeee this racket.

    I just bought one of these as well and played my first two sets (doubles) with it tonight. It was already strung with Prince Poly EXP @ 55.

    It took me a few games to get used to playing with it. I agree that the power level is low - I had to take full swings to get my shots deep. My serve was slower but more accurate. Return of serve was good - especially against big hitters. Good response and feel at the net. Overall it was very comfortable.

    I'm pleased with the purchase and know it will find a place in the rotation with my other rackets (PK 5G, PK 10Ki PSE, Liquidmetal 4)

    definitely soft, flexy, and underpowered. great spin potential though.
