    Has anyone seen or hit with a Powerbridge 10 yet? Nice to see the 10 series living on.

    Yes I was at the Nottingham Open today and saw all the Powerbridge models. Very sweet graphics and fine looking. Having a long hit with the PB10 tomorrow will post review then. These rackets will go on sale in the UK late July. The PB10 is 18/20 and 325gm, DNX is still at 3&9 as well as in bridge. Also Becker is coming out with more new frames called the Delta Core very interesting features. The PB10 is currently scheduled to sell for about £150 ere in UK. Also they are going to produce a 295gm version with 16/19 pattern and should be out about same time frame. Hope this helps will post more as i get info.

    No according to the Rep the sales for the 295 are for the junior groups. The 16/19 gives alittle more power and spin potential which they like. Sales in the UK of the Becker 11 lite 295 16/19 were some of the best they have seen in the past years. Hence following the same lines with the PB10.

    That makes sense. A lighter, flexy low powered frame with an 18x20 stringbed would be hard to generate power with even for many non Juniors. I think that could have been the problem with the Dnx10MP 295 grams. The B11Light played very well for me with lead on the grip collar cuff and at 3 and 9. This will likely be along the lines of the 11Light, but perhaps a bit more juioce w. the Powerbridge
