I enjoy the easy spin, power, and control of Babolats. I also see why they are very popular with beginners all the way to pros. How do people get used to the hollow feel? I added silicone and it helped a little, but it is still of a little in my book.
The newest pure drive roddick feels a lot more solid. I also added 6 inches of lead to 3 and 9 and it feels incredible now at 12.1 ozs. You could try that in a demo. It swings very very easy.
