    Has anyone tried this racquet? If so what did you think about it?

    I thought it felt pretty good. I was surprised with the spin that I could produce, and the level of control was nice. I use leaded up SP Tours with the string hole inserts, so I didn't think I'd be able to swing away without launching balls out of the court...not the case at all.

    Flavors?

    Does it come in two flavors: ports AND inserts?

    I don't know why they don't offer the SP Tuning System on more racquets...it's a major selling point for the two racquets with the technology. Plus, the racquets can suit a larger range of player.

    I'm actually demo'ing this right now and have hit with it for probably 7 hours total. I think it's a great racquet. The weight and maneuverability on it fits me really nice. What I don't like though is the dead feel on serves. I like feedback on serves so that was a problem.

    If there's one thing I'd have to point out it would be the volleys. I love volleying with this racquet.

    But for some odd reason I had to switch from semi-western to eastern grip when hitting with this. I can't seem to hit as good with the semi-western.

    I thought this would be my new racquet, but the lack of feedback on serves changed my mind.
