    Hey, I think this will the first post ever on the racquet board. Cool.

    Anyway, I currently play with a V1 Classic. Like it very much, but it does feel stiff at times, especially if I use a hard string. Can anyone suggest a similarly powered racquet except with more flex?

    Thanks.

    Cat V1 MP

    The V1 Cat MP feels flexier due to the catapult system. It is a very nice racket, IMO and couldn't be closer to what you're playing with now.

    Thanks, Rabbit. 8)

    I'll give the Catapult V1 a demo.

    IMO, the most flexible tweener was the original Prince Graphite Michael Chang with an RDC rating of 59.

    Thanks, Gaines... I should have been more specific in my subject title...I've tried the Chang before. It doesn't have the pop I'm looking for...

    I agree with Rabbit. It hits great and has a wonderful feel to it. I had one and sold it now I wish I would have kept it.

    ditto as well. I usually use a Quantum V1 MP but on days when I need some more pop in my groundstrokes, I'll whip out the Cat V1. The best way to describe it is: controlled power.

    The LM Instinct is a tweener with a stiffness rating of 63. This racket leans toward the player's racket side, but is quite forgiving.

    The Gamma F-8.0 was easily the most flexible tweener IMHO. Dnlop MW 200G 100 a close second. Yonex SRQ-500 was in a class of its own.
