    I played a couple sets of doubles with it at the Stringers Symposium. Serves we excellent, and I was able to hit block returns pretty easily. Once I dialed in my timing, I was able to rip topspin backhand returns (which is not something I usually do...I mostly hit flat drives and slice).

    I'm going to demo it and the Tour Pro 98 some more when the demos come it. We'll see if one of those frames can take me away from my Rebels.

    That is my one complaint about the 16x18. It does behave a little springy at times. Would you say the ESP version is still pretty comfortable?


    It seems like with your leather grip, it is close to the 16x18 weight.

    POG LB old vs new

    @TW Andy

    I believe you mentioned in the review that you also had experience using the previous POG LB. What are the pros and cons of the old and new POG LB in a lil more detail? And what style of play would each version be more suitable for in your opinion? Thanks
