    People often talk about the great Volkl feel. However, I have never hit with a Volkl that I could get any kind of feel or comfort with. They all seemed very harsh. Strange.

    I agree that for the stiff racquets, particular DNX and PowerBridge series

    Mike, sorry I did not add this to my reply-I meant the EX03 Tour 16x18.

    I've hit with rackets from all of these companies and can't say I dislike any of them...some don't suit my game as well as others but in the right hands one is just as good as another.

    I actually never really liked Wilson but irony of life has set me up with a Wilson mid I really love and I even bought five of them. I still don't like their grip shape, though.

    Babolats are certainly nothing for me.

    Babolat and prince, all the babolats I've played with, the last 3 aero pros, and the last pure storm were withered greatly underpowered, had horrible swing weight ( for me ) hurt my wrist, or were to stiff!

    Prince to me just has lacking quality and beer found one I liked, ex girlfriend had one of the older model o series and made her switch from prince and she never played better

    I personally never found them powerful, I always found them hard to swing and just very hard and dead feeling ( and I prefer racquets on the heavier side ) they've just never impressed me, racquets and opinion will vary from person to person

    What don't you like about the Dunlop racquets? I have the Black Max II, MuscleWeave 200G 95, and Aerogel 200. I have no good reason to look elsewhere.

    Actually REALLY trying to like Head racquets, but Demos & whim purchases leave me hating them.......

    Loved the look & 'hand test' of Rad Pro & OS, but hated on court, then Demoed Speed 315 16x19 for solid week & LOVED it.....

    Bought one new & played COMPLETELY dead w lively string s/u used million times!!! Rest was stock......
    I string / customize myself, & measured Strung Balance @ 11PTS HL VS 6PT HL STRUNG SPEC!!!

    Attempted modding for a minute, but returned as defect w/out problem....

    Have seen countless Wilson K Factor & BLX frames w inconsistent specs as well---- not as dramatic, but most commonly inconsistent brand by far
