    I am thinking about giving this racquet a try to help with a minor (but persistant) wrist/elbow problem. However, all indications are that this stick
    doesn't generate a lot of power.

    While I can swing fast the fact is I WIN more when using a racquet with a
    little more pop.

    My question is for anyone with experience with this racquet: How much more
    power can you get from this stick with a loose string job? And is it still
    playabe?

    thanks

    I'm currently using a pair of those. They DO have more power than a standard player's frame. The power is not in the Pure Drive category by any means, but there is noticeable pop to these frames (more than, for instance, a Wilson 6.1 or a Prestige MP). It's a strange feeling racquet: kind of spongy in absorbing the impact, but springy when releasing the ball, producing good depth with a long swing. They take some getting used to, but they are definitely VERY elbow-friendly. I would say that they are more geared toward old-school players who swing fairly flat and through the ball, then toward Nadal wannabes.
