    How is it for the elbow? I demoed it and seems very good for my all court game, especially for my 1hbh and net game. Serves with very good spin too. It just seems a bit "hard" on the arm, but a demo is not enough... please advice.

    I think it's safe for the elbow. I got tennis elbow two years ago using a Head Ti Fire Tour Edition and had to take 6 months off. When I came back, I demoed a lot of racquets and went with the PS 6.0 95. I haven't had any problems with my elbow since. The PS 6.0 95 is heavy and flexible enough to absorb a lot of the shock and vibration. This is one of the best racquets for my 1HBH ever.

    I haven't had any problems with mine either. My problem is that on an off day, the 6.0 95 is heavy enough that I get behind with it and have to switch to a little lighter racquet. But, when I'm on, it's a great feeling racquet. Like breakpoint said, it's flexible enough and heavy enough to do a good job of absorbing shock and vibration. I think it even has a decent sized sweetspot.

    I've never had an elbow problem with the PS 6.0 85 or 95 and I've been playing with them since 1984 (the PS 6.0 95 for ~ the last 5 years). It's a heavy headlight racquet, which is supposed to be good for the elbow. The thin beam keeps it from being too stiff.
