Keep it goin' Ross... Performs great from the b-line... as I'm sure you've noticed. I've been playing with this frame for the past four months... and even though I went on a 'demo-spree' (about 15 frames..from the donnay gold99 to the IGPresMid+.. to the PDGT)... kept coming back to this one. The stick feels alive... as if it's breathing. Even though I have chosen the 18x20 model... I find the distribution of the string-bed with 17g strings to be more open than most 16x19 frames... such as the BLXopen... the PDGT... the PresPro and many others... the only other frames that have been more open in terms of string-pattern-density (through my experience) have been the 6.1 Tour 90 and the RqiS Tour. Which means the 16x18 version is probably one of the most open-patterned string beds available on the market. I have yet to find a better slice frame... including the T90.. :shock: Still miss the PresMid on serve.. volleys ... and overheads. Everything else wins with the exoT's.... forehands.... backhands (tremondous)... slices... any 'junk-shots'... lobs... drops... Just a very, very versatile frame and great for 'toying' with your opponent.
