    Anybody have any experience with this racquet...the specs sure look fun...especially the 14 X 18 string pattern!

    I had a brief hit with one....it is very powerful, swings rather heavy with a nearly even balance, relatively comfortable for its stiffness. Not alot of control. The racquet is absolutely PINK, not red like most of the other Tecnifibres, so be prepared.

    I had one for a while, but mine was something like 15 grams lighter than the TW specs and very head heavy. In this guise it was was too unstable for my liking (I usually play with racquets in the 320g - 340g category). When I added about 20 grams of lead to the handle and an overgrip it was a lot better but still very stiff. So much so that I was getting forearm pain even with a multi.

    On the plus side it was very powerful and did have good spin, but not as much as you would hope from a 14 x 18 in a 102 head.
