I'm an older 4.5-5.0 player approaching 50. I can't handle a heavier racket as I once did and was looking for what I would consider to be an "Advanced Tweener" racket. Man, does this stick do the trick. It has some of that old "pro-staff" feel in terms of control and touch. It has the thinner 21-22 mm beam that helps it feel a little more "scapel" like. Ideally, I probably like 19-20mm wide beams the most but they are 1) either too heavy for me or 2) too underpowered. This racket comes in at 10.8-10.9 oz. strung with vibration dampener. Balance feels great and it is very easy to swing. Good power as well with a solid swing. Excellent for spin and on serving. The 100 sq. inch head feels about perfect. Anybody else play with this? I realize it might be too light for some younger, more advanced players. But, for an aging advanced player, it feels just right.
