    How old is Zeroskid?
    This is not to say, well you must be 12, is just to
    have an idea of the range of frames that you have
    used and your racket life timeline.
    Sometimes age also gives an idea of technique, for example
    Granville ( older )comes more to the net and hits flatter than Troy or Jose.

    Numbers are meaningless unless there is context.

    As well, calling yourself a 4.5 an then railing against the TW Playtesters as as having over-inflated skills level make you look like you don't know what you're talking about. If you are and have played against a 4.5 you would know what one looks like when you see it.

    I have read up on your post history; regarding racquet comments it is mostly mostly consists of calling racquets "bad," "garbage" or saying that they "suck." I'll be interested to see your full review write ups.

    zeroskid, please refrain from flaming tw playtesters. they are highly respected here. anytime when we start poop slinging, will always get some in ur face as well.

    back to tennis. I was surprised on ur ratings on the exo3 tour as an all court player. I heard groundies and volleys have great feedback.

    LOL, nice selection of frames.

    That shows how good you are, 3.0 at best.

    I thought I was going to love the racquet, firstly the feel was terrible, I was hearing many people say it was different or unique, I don't think so, it's just another way of saying it has no feel. Control is really bad to, the ball springs off the racquet and it was not easy to control the ball, ground-strokes were okay, and volleys were also just okay, the two good things about the racquet are that I was able to produce very fast racquet head speed because of the ex03 holes and that I could produce lots of spin

    Why is this guy getting flamed? He took time to write his reviews and the first three responses attacked him.
    Doesn't mean I necessarily agree with his scores but give him a break.

    That sounds like your demo may have been due for a restring; your account is a lot like how I'd describe a full bed of synthetic gut right before it breaks.

    My experience with that racquet was much more positive than yours, and I know the one I played with had fresh strings.

    Just remember that 90% of the people in here are teenagers. and mainly in high school. That's the level, you should expect when you post reviews when you see comments coming back to you.

    It´s all about the strings! Try this frame with Volkl Cyclone 1.20 at 48 pounds and You will change your opinion!
