    eh, don t think it is a racquet i will like, I love the o3 white and cant wait for tennis warehouse to get some in stock.

    the new flexpoint prestige is a darn good racquet also. I have demoed it and I must say it is very stable, solid and have great power. I have a collection of all the prestiges and I cant wait for TW to carry this great frame.

    Fellow board member Ti Radical and I took this one out for a test drive this morning. It certainly has a bit of grunt to it and spin was effortless, even for me with my continental grip. 'TiRadical' uses more of a western grip than I do and he was ripping the ball pretty easily.

    I haven't hit with any of the other Aero frames so I can't compare. I personally didn't care for this one that much - it felt a little 'hollow' and insubstantial to me. I think though that these aero type frames are designed to facilitate a more modern open stanced style of hitting. If you like to hit with a lot of spin and net clearance I can see this one helping you out a lot. It would really become tiring having to play fast balls bouncing at shoulder height for a whole match.

    It's not really new...I believe it's already been out for more than 6 months here in Canada...

    Aero Strike

    Hey there,
    Did you get an Aero Strike?
    I picked one up out of Canada and have it strug at 55lbs with 15L string. I started out at 67lbs on it with 17L string, just didnt have enough feeling to it. But once I dropped the weight to the bottom it plays great.
    I am a serve and volley player, mostly doubles.
    I like the raquet a lot. Only thing I dont is that it doesnt have that much touch on it.
    I can easily serve over 110mph with it though.
    I need to get another one, have you found a good price on it? $178 US is what I paid for it at the time.
    -Endo.
