    Is anyone here using this racquet or have recently played with one ?

    What is your impressions about it stock and did you customize it ?

    Im going to demo this one tonight in stock form but i would think that i should lead it up a bit if i buy it,goal would be about 325-330 SW and 335 or so static weight, up from 306sw/326 static.

    Any thoughts ?

    Im currently using the Blade 93 but i need something slightly more forgiving and softer RA rating.

    I have 3 of these bad boys. I added lead at 3 and 9, and I love the results. Check my sig for my set up. It's like the 90 with more forgiveness IMO.

    Threw 4 grams of lead at 12 on mine and it feels great.

    Nice to hear.

    Im back now after testing,it felt quite light but i could add some spin and found decent depth,just not that solid and lacking som plow,however i guess adding some lead would change that.

    Actually i got a silly idea,my dampener weighs about 4-5g, i tried to put it in top of racquet instead of in the normal place, and it really felt different!
    More plow and more solid, at first i thought it must be imaginary,but when calculating its actually 16-20 SW points when added at 12 o clock,thats 322-326 SW instead of 306.
    Unfortunately i got this idea after my opponent had left and i was hitting some balls with my kid so i didnt get to try on serves and match play full out,but it did feel better.

    How would you compare stock VS leaded, how much different does it feel after adding lead ?
    Did it improve serve,that was the weakest point of the racquet now at stock,good spin but no power,alot less than the blade.
