I'm a long time user of the POGOS and been hitting it since about 1981. There were little differences between each version after that but overall there wasn't enough to cause any problem. Well now it looks like there is. About six months back I bought my first new ones since 2002. Didn't look any different cosmetically and the overall weight was pretty much the same but that's where the good times stopped. The balance was a hell of a lot different and the swingweight a good chunk higher than they used to be and I just couldn't handle it. In my case that meant the measured specifications (done by an MRT) on the racquet were 12.2oz and 12.3oz weight, 335 and 333 swingweight, 2pts and 3pts Head Light. Now I may not be 21 (Im 50, somewhere between 4.0 and 4.5 NTRP) but I'm still a strong guy who lifts a few times a week and is in good shape but I just can't use a racquet like. When I hit the ball there's a ton of power and I can still make the ball spin but moving it into position is a chore and my reaction time on volleys is now so slow its like Im swinging through water. If I tail weight it I get a more head light balance but the swingweight and overall weight go too high. I just cant use the POGOS the way it is. So I really dont know what to do now. My question to POGOS users, especially the ones who've had the same trouble as me, is what other racquet out there might be similar to the POGOS (that mean I want an oversize racquet) or have people found a way around the change in specifications?
