    I was wondering if any of the play testers have had any experience hitting with the PB 7. If so, could they compare it to similar frames in terms of control, power and comfort. I've used various Radical OS racquets in the past and like the control and comfort, but not the head shape. Would the PB 7 be similar in feel and performance? If I pick it up I would probably add weight to get the PB 7 to about 11.4 oz. and 3-4pt HL. Also if possible a string recommendation - I take a full swing, generate my own power and am currently play Cyclone 17 at 48# in a 98 headsize. Thanks.

    I know this isn't exactly a mainstream racquet, but I'm wondering if anyone can provide any thoughts - thanks.

    Do a search in the Racquet section; I've seen several posts re the PB 7.

    Already did that and found nothing useful. Just trying to determine if the PB 7 is at all similar in playing characteristics and comfort to a Radical OS. I need a racquet where I can swing out and not shorten my strokes because I'm afraid of hitting the ball long.

    There are 11 paragraphs of comments in the feedback section for this racquet. Read them. My experience is that control can be an issue with this racquet, I couldn't keep serves and some groundies in the court, definitely does not have the control of the Radical.

    I also have spent some time with this frame. It plays nothing like a Radical O/S. The Radical O/S is a light players O/S frame. To get the best of the Rad O/S you have to swing fast and have good strokes. My experience with the PB-7 that it is for folks with slower compact strokes. Hope that helps..

    Good luck..

    Thanks guys, this is exactly the feedback I was looking for. I did read all the customer feedback on the racquet, but it wasn't entirely clear what power level the racquet played to. I was concerned that the PB 7 might be a bit of a rocket launcher even though its classified as being at the players end of the spectrum on the Voelkl website.
