    I just picked one of these up to try (the plus). I strung it at 55lbs with the Babolat VS/Hurricane hybrid set (16 guage). The ball stays in the court -depending on how you hit it of course :). The racquet feels quite stiff but it's certainly a great stick. If you connect smoothly with that thing it just rips the cover off the ball, which is a darn lot of fun. I'm icing my arm ad shoulder now though...
