Here's the thing though -- like I said, this is a heavy racket. It seems a little heavier than the Davis wood racket even, so I'm guessing it is 14+ oz. I was hitting around with my nephew who is a beginner. Given his slow shots, I had plenty of chances to tee-off. So I don't know how well I'd do against a better player, where I need to be able to maneuver the racket and get into position faster in order to return harder shots (the small head size may become more of a liability against harder shots too).
Nice review. Sounds like it was fun to play with. If you have access to a scale, could you weigh it? I'm curious as to the weight.
Now fortified with tiger blood and Adonis DNA.
