    Wondering if anyone can comment on their experience with this racquet. Given the low price I'm thinking of picking up a few, but can't demo here in Canada. Would add leather grip, overgrip and lead to get strung weight up to about 325g, around 3pt HL and SW 320. I'm a solid 4.0, all court game, hit a flatter ball and have a full swing. Have used an Organix 10 295, Becker London and Shark MP over the past year. Tried the Organix V1 MP which was a disaster - felt like I was slapping at the ball and had no put away power. Don't want to repeat that experience with the PB 7. Appreciate any feedback and comparisons to more player oriented racquets. Also comments on effective string setup and related comfort level.

    I would like it a lot more if it wasn't extended length and slighted smaller hoop and without that rectangular grip.

    I wonder if 2 out of these 3 things can be fixed? I know the pallets can be changed to the more rounded Attiva grips and it may be possible to trim that extra .3" off the butt end?. The latter may be tough to do? But if those 2 mods are made, I would consider it. About the 107" headsize...it doesn't "look" much larger than a 100". Maybe Volkl measures from the inside of the frame?

    Have you had a chance to try it out yet?

    Ive demo'd and even purchased multiple racquets and for some reason I keep coming back to my pb7s. (selling a pair of head speed 300s today in fact, going back to the pb7). Not sure if it is because I have grooved my strokes using the pb7 or what, but i get more spin, more power, better serves and much more consistency out of the pb7 than all the others I keep trying for awhile. I think im going to fight the urge and stick with the pb through spring season and see what happens.
