    Any threads on this racquet. I read the TW review and seems like it might be a good frame. Any good/bad experiences with it?

    Have there been any comparisons on it?

    From the review its like the POG 93", but heavier and more stable. I got one on the way so will post when I get it.

    I like the Diablo and had good hard groundstorkes for the baseline and was comfortable at the net, I could also but kick or slice on my serve. I agree that it sort of feels like the POG 93 but I noticed some similarities. Just me. Hope that helps.

    What NTRP level should you be at to get the best out of this racquet? How is the Diablo with your arm?

    Thats difficult because its a 93" head but its larger than a Prestige (my current racquet), with a much bigger sweetspot, so I'd say 4.0+... give it a try if your 3.5 with good technique, you might do well with it.

    The Diablo Mid plays similar to the POG Mid but is more solid and is less maneuverable. I preferred the maneuverability of the POG mid and the fact that it seemed like I could 'feel' the ball on the strings better with the POG. I found the Diablo to be even slower at the net than my Prince. Very solid on groundstrokes though if you have the time to prepare. I found myself being late many times.

    If I were to stay in the 90-93 sq in head range I would go with the Yonex RDX-500 Mid over either one of the above racquets. {I'm going to order two of the RDX-500 Midplus racquets next week}
