    serveitup911, I saw in your signature that you're a college player and use M-Fil 200+. I currently use Wilson HPS Tour 95, which has very similar spec to M-Fil 200+ except for the length. I don't know if you've tried the HPS Tour 95 before. I'm looking for a new racket with just a bit more pop and the extra length of M-Fil 200+ might be just what I need. Wonder if you could comment on my idea.

    Unfortunately, I have not hit with the HPS Tour 95.
    However, I played with the standard M-Fil 200 before switching to the Plus.

    I feel that the extra length definitely gives me more power and the open spin pattern makes it easy to generate spin.

    My serve has improved a lot and I don't have to swing so hard to maintain good pace on groundstrokes.

    I added a few grams of lead tape at 10 and 2 and use two overgrips on top of the regular grip. I felt that I needed the extra weight because I have played a 12+ oz. racket for years.

    The throat of the racket lists a 67 RA, but it feels more like TW's listed 63 RA.

    I think it's a great racket, I definitely recommend at least a demo.

    Yeah the extra .5 definitely helps with serves.
