    I would say it's high for a player's racquet, solid, decent feel and good maneuverability. Power level, though, is a little on the high side. I would imagine this is due to the woofer tech, but i don't really think the woofer does much except lessen the angle the string bends around the grommet... i GUESS this could lead to more string "movement," but i doubt this is the entire reason this racquet plays the way it does...

    Well due to my high dislike of wilsons, id have to say boo wilson, but ive heard babs racquets have a super high stiffness, and if your gonna add a higher tension string, might wanna take care of your elbow

    it's also a little clumsy at net, not too manueverable.
