    feels a bit "dead" to me--can't explain it. Just doesn't feel like it has the "feel" of the POG or even the Diablo Mid or MP. I must not like the material composition.

    i felt the same "deadness" Coria's talking about. It didn't feel much like the POG when I played with it. it was a big disappointment for me. I really disliked the entire NXG line and would pick up a POG anyday over these nxgs.

    Not quite what I wanted to hear, but thanks for the input.

    Prince Tour NXG's only good use is as a doorstop.

    Junk that NXG and buy the real thing a POG.

    I've played with both the nxg OS and the pog mid. I'd have to say that the POG is better, but I wouldn't knock the nxg either. It's still a pretty good racquet and despite the muted feel, plays like a players racquet.

    Hit with one that felt like a tin can. Put it down in 5 strokes or less. Sorry.

    Sounds as if Santa ran out of coal and gave you a NXG. Be greatful he had one left in his bag, his other option was likley a sharp stick in your eye.

    I don't know what you guys are talking about. The NXGraphite is great. I would recommend some lead in the head and a soft string. The racquet offers superb control and feel, average power for a players racquet. The string bed is stiff, but just reduce the tension a little, plus you can use whatever string and not worry about breaking. My only dislike is the serve, it lacks the power I am used to(I usual serve around 115-120...with the NXG it is down to 105-110)

    I know the NXG is not very popular around here.... if it was me, I'd sell/return it for a Diablo Tour.
