    This racquet just caught my eye. 9.8 oz with a 326 swingweight? What would the advantage of such a spec be? It seems like your swing speed would be slowed down some, but the racquet has insufficient mass to generate any pop at all.

    " this one is well suited to the all court player or those who mix both singles and doubles play."

    That's me... but I prefer head light :mrgreen:

    9.8oz / 278g with 328 swingweight... what a difference

    I read that, but I still don't get it. Why would you want a light racquet with a relatively high swingweight?

    The racquet is meant for recreational players. Low weight with high swingweight = head heavy. Can only be meant for rec players.

    Agree with Vantage 100%. If it were a 12 oz racquet that was 9 pts HH the SW would be insanely high and extremely difficult to swing.

    This racquet is not a whole lot different than wilson's hammers.
