Swings easy and allows me to take full cuts at the ball and, boy, is that a satisfying feeling with this stick! First serves are BIG, second serves lots of action, for the last couple of matches only hit one or two double faults per match and lots of first serve winners. With the more headlight balance and low tension vollying is a joy, lots of control, placement and backspin (used to play pure S&V back when I lived in Oz and played on grass all summer...). This stick is for keeps, can't imagine the biomimetic to be significantly better.


kaiser - how much weight did you add in the handle to make it a little more HL.....if i can make this racquet may be 8- 9HL this will be a dream stick for me......not being very strong I love the plow of the racquet but struggle hitting/killing low balls where heavy topspin needs a quick racquet head speed.
