    I wish I had the perspective that comes from trying that many rackets. I demoed about six before buying new rackets last year. I found that, as stated in the OP, you are somewhat at the mercy of the strings in the demo.

    Anyway my rackets eventually broke, and I wanted to replace them with something different. I didn't want to go through the demo process, so I just picked a different frame that had similar specs to my last one, and was also highly regarded in TW reviews. It turned out to be an awesome racket. lol

    Sometimes, when you have too many options, you get confused and dazed.
    Sometimes, it gives you a wider reference point.
    Sometimes, when you limit your options, you can get on with your tennis.
    Sometimes, when you get on with your tennis, you might wish you had tried more options.

    I secretly hope they buy the blade for me...I told them to order it strung with PPA@ mid tension. Would be sickkkkk. Along with maybe a gold Wilson tour bag...

    I still have 2 LMRads. Microgel is just more friendly, overall, and hits a big enough ball, at any level.

    Hey, it was the first racket I thought of when they called me on my way to work! I figure that's my subconscious speaking lol.
