This new model was released here in Europe a few months ago. Hopefully it is already available in US also. Anyway, there were people here in board who wanted to know how it plays, so here are thoughts,finally. I purchased two of them dreaming that it would be my holy grail. Well, it wasn't. Now after an honeymoon period with this bat I have to admit that I don't have a game for it, even it is very easy players racket to play with. As an comparison to its smaller 93 inch brother,it is more forgiving and powerful. But it's also more headlight (8.8 points vs 4 points). I think rackets balance and maneuverability suits better for players with 1 handed backhand. At least, that how it felt to me. I'm a pure baseliner and struggled to get enough ball speed with my 2 handed backhand, slice was nice though. Here are some + and minuses. + Volleys (nice touch and firm feel,also very maneuverable) + Forehand (placement and easiness to rib straight winners) + stable and solid feel for its weight - sweetspot forgiveness or its size (if you miss it,net calls) - Serves (same as above,couldn't serve constantly well) - you cannot be lazy with this one Ok, those were my thoughts. Have anyone else hit with this? I will put mine ROKs to classifieds tomorrow if anyone is interested.
