I use wood too.
But when I do, against someone at the same level as me, yeah, I want to go to the net, but if my approach is not a well-placed slice, the oppenent rocks a pass by me. Less so if he's got a wooden frame in his hand.

Of course, it's tough to find fellow woodsmen these days. Everyone wants to try two minutes with it, sure, but people are afraid to actually commit to it. Maybe they fear injury or something, even though a freshly strung wooden frame is as safe as can be, IMHO.

And yeah, like Laver is saying, they definitely bring out the skill. And fitness, I might add. Points tend to be longer, even indoors with wood. I have to play a more calculating, patient, selective, attacking style with them. Can't just bang.
