    Light and flimsy. It might be ok if you lead it up.

    Too light and too flexy. You can increase the weight, but can't change the flex. Just look at how fast the price decreases, you can tell it's crap.

    Hi,

    I might agree that the frame is a bit on the light side.. and a bit too flexy.. but the frame is very popular and has held it's price well. Try to get one brand new for less than $70? and the frame has been out for 2 years or so. Even though this frame does not meet the needs of the many "I have to play with a 90 sq in/13 oz frame) players here it has wide appeal elsewhere. Just like the Wilson 7.1 Zone was bashed here.. but try to find one now??

    Have a good one!

    Steve

    It is good, but the flex is in the hoop not the throat, very stable.


    I have a brand new one I would sell or trade for

    I played doubles with this racquet for 1 year. It is a little bit light (feels lighter than 11.5) and unsteady. I had to put lead tape at 3 and 9 (10 grms). Basically a good all around racquet, nothing special.

    I use it. It needs lead, but with a bit of lead at 3 and 9 it becomes pretty stable. I like the control i get with it. Without lead, it is way too light. It isn't very flexy imo. The flex feels higher than that stated on tw. I actually plan to get one more. It took me a while to get the slice down but now that is good too.

    I like this racquet -- it's gotten a bum rap, but then it serves a narrow market: lighter than most "player's" racquets, but with flex, thin beam, mid-size head, not much power ... I would recommend it with natural gut strung at or slightly below mid-range.

    Anyone calling this frame flimsy should consider it's specs: 11.5 oz and 7 pts HL. It's obviously intentded to be a maneuverable racket and doesn't have a lot of mass in the head to plow through the ball. With that considered, I think it's sturdy enough.

    I'm surprised some think this frame is too flexy. I played with it not knowing the flex and was shocked to see 62! Maybe it was because of the leather grip, but I didn't find it to be that comfortable of a racket.

    Overall, I think it's a pretty decent racket for someone looking for something lighter than 12 oz and easy to swing.

    solid performance at the net. but for serving that produce little power.

    Just bought one and leaded it up to 360 g (approx 12.8oz), 9pts HL, gut hybrid at mid. At this weight, it is plenty able...Have to admit it feels pretty good, however it's flexier than it's TW's stated spec...Just lead it up and give it a go!!!

    Technique is the key. I have one and works good, leaded at 2@10.
