IMHO, accuracy is pretty good, but will improve with more practice and play time. Using a semi-Western grip on both sides helps control the ball arc, also adds spin. You don't have to do anything special with the 133 to generate spin, it just happens --- as if by magic.

Re the strings, the rackets comes with 15g hex poly strings, brand is proprietary to Vortex. I will be interested to see how long the strings hold up before stretching and losing their pop. Since the other Vortex racket (ES 10 has MSV Hex strings that are over 2 years old, and it still plays well (feels EXTREMELY soft and cushy), maybe the strings in the 133 will also last as long. However, I am not really sold on poly, so I will want to try the PowerMaxx Light Touch natty gut, see how that feels.

The 133 is definitely fun to hit with, puts a smile on your face.
