I never tried this stick out, because I was frightened by the high swingweight and the comments about how heavy it was. Then I did a post asking for suggestions for sub-95, 12 oz, 16 main sticks and many suggested I try it. So I did. OMG. From the first game I served with it, my serve picked up for accuracy, speed and spin. Volleys stayed low and penetrated. I could come over hard serves with my one handed backhand and get great dip if the server came in, good length if he stayed back. In every aspect, I found it maneuverable and easy to swing. It is easier to swing the my beloved PT280s, whose swingweight is listed around 325 while the C10 PT is listed at 339. I was lucky enough to find a brand new one and a barely used demo to go with my first well-used C10 PT, so now I have 3. If my bubble doesn't burst after 4-6 weeks, some well cared for PT 280s will be on the market. OK, its kind of ugly and has no Kevlar, but nothing's perfect.
