First off. Tennis Warehouse is awesome. Ordered a brand new racket and called them up and they matched the competitions price without any hassle and also threw in a free t-shirt because the competition did also. Got a Aero Pro Drive Cortex (APDC) Grip Size : 4 1/4 Main Strings: Pro Hurricane Tour 17 (PHT17) at 61 Crosses: Xcel Premium 17 I'm psyched to hit with this. I've just completed my 3.0 season undefeated playing at the 1 and 2 spots mainly, and wanted to step my game up a notch for the 6.5 mixed season. I'm not that great a tennis player but I'm pretty athletic and am skilled at many different sports. Recently I have come to enjoy tennis lots. I've demoed a bunch of Babolat rackets recently and was debating between this one and the Pure Drive Roddick or Roddick Plus. wasn't sure about GT or not either. I think the APDC has much more control and allows me to fully hit without fear of the ball going long. Since I'm athletic I like to put my body into my hits. Before this I used a Pure Drive 110. I kinda like the 110 and feel comfortable with it, but I think it's a mental thing and know it's probably holding my game back.
