I'm a current BB London user but have been eyeing heavier racquets like the Head YOUtek Prestige MP/Volkl PB 10 MP/Redondo. TW has the BB Melbourne available for pre-order.

My London is weighted to 342 g and is 9 pts HL all thanks to a BB leather grip.

Head Size:
98 sq. in. / 632.26 sq. cm.
Length: 27in / 69cm
Strung Weight: 12oz / 340g
Balance: 6 pts HL
Swingweight: 322
Stiffness: 64
Beam Width: 21mm / 21mm / 21mm /
Composition: Graphite / Delta Core
Power Level: Low
Stroke Style: Compact
Swing Speed: Fast
Racquet Colors:
White / Black / Orange
Grip Type: Boris Becker Synthetic
String Pattern:
18 Mains / 20 Crosses
Mains skip: 8T, 10T, 8H, 10H
Two Pieces
No Shared Holes
String Tension: 50-60 pounds

I haven't noticed on other racquets spec list but this has "stroke style: compact" but then states a fast swing speed. Any ideas as to what this translates to?

Has anyone had a chance to get their paws on this?
I wonder if this is worth considering or maybe some of the others mentioned above (all worth a play test)
Married into a tennis fam-trying2keep up after4knee surgeries. I almost have more racquets than my wife and in-laws (don't tell the wife)
