    Nice review, the F 3.0 seems more interesting to me though.

    Spec on this is virtually same as Donnay formula lite 100 racket. Do they play similarly or would you say they are completely different feeling rackets ? Thanks

    i own and have hit for several hours with an s.0 lite racket.

    it has a stiff, tinny sensation upon impact that provides an accurate sense of control with currently...58lb solinco vanquish 17g strings.

    a mini reel of black widow string came with my racket so i will likely drop tension to bottom or below spec soon.

    my game is awkward as i hit bh and fh slice on nearly every shot.

    bh slice has good bite and accuracy but doesnt seem to give the felt stripping ballistic quality of some heavier, smaller head rackets.

    fh slice is a dreamy spiralling helix shaped skid into the concrete
    on many shots and is valuable on defensive out-wide forehand responses...the main reason why i bought this racket.

    with the light weight you can pretty much get a racket on any playable ball and most shots are easier, if not alltogether better, with this racket.

    topspin ohbh isnt my forte but i can better hit them when high with a solid flick over the top of the ball...with low flex and helpful information from the rackets vibration.

    a heavy serve likely will blast this racket back at you if you dont take advantage of gettign the lightweight racket quickly into the ball.

    donnay formula lite to me seemed a softer feeling hit even with all poly.
