That's why I'm loving this racquet the more I play with it. A neutral racquet for me equals a predictable racquet. I get out of it what I put into it. I played full-on the last four days with this racquet and it's fantastic. When I want power it's there and when I need touch it's there as well. I'm slowly adapting to the way the racquet swings and I'm actually playing it stock right now. I have it strung with Tec Razor Code 18 at 52 lbs (NOTE: This is too loose in this racquet) and I'm making it work for now. I'll either go higher in tension with the 18 gauge or move down to 17/16 at the same tension.
