    Got to try this one out tonirte and I was quite impressed. Very easy to use, friendly tweener. Good power and great at the net. I only got in 2 sets of doubles and didn't get to try many touch shots. Serves were very good. Swing weight is light while still feeling. My main concern though is that this may be a racquet that needs a poly to tame the power. I would prefer to use a soft nylon in the mains. My demo has full Wilson Extreme Syngut.

    Siobahn is fluent in German? I've read that she went to work at Tennis Warehouse Europe.

    I didn't think so. I thought it needed some weight in the head to give it some swingweight and plow. Felt very balanced overall to me. But you
    could easily fix that by tailweighting it some. The static weight is pretty low so theres plenty of room to customize.

    Siobhan is not fluent in German but I know she is trying to learn as much of it as she can! She is currently working over at TW Europe but luckily she doesn't need to know German to work there!

    Guys, when will the written review be ready on this one. It's a great racquet and seems like all the playtesters really liked it as well. Chris even said he could switch to it if it were slightly more comfortable. That's high praise!

    THAT is a big deal considering the last line of Razors were basically ALL total disasters. TW basically said so, and they're not in the business of saying racquets are awful lol.

    JackB1,

    The review is in the final editing process but should be up in 1-2 weeks.

    Surprised this racquet isn't more popular. It's like a new and improved Prince Red 105 or a more powerful Wilson Blade 104.
