Power is easily on tap and I think this stick will reward players who tend to have more of a topspin ( w/wiper) forehand and play with a 2HBH (Yonex level-effortless execution). Comfort is what you would expect from a stick with this type of flex and matches well with a crisp full poly string bed but I suspect it would also hybrid well.

All in all this stick has left a pretty good impression and has been placed in the # 1 spot in my bag until further notice. More to come
Oh Murray!... Every single word of the above (I've read the post twice) makes it sound completely like it would appeal to me... Oh dear, this thread is just no good whatsoever for my mental stability.


Immediately after yesterday's session with the APDO/Pro No 1/PC+, I now realize I was slightly rushing to conclusions, especially re the Pro No 1/VT Pro 98.

To put it in perspective, compared to the elite, somewhat classic, personal favourite GROAT frames I've had the privilege to play with over the years, I'd say I found it easier to use than, say, a PT630, and more on a par with a frame like the C10 Pro, which I could use and didn't find overwhelmingly demanding. So I think I need to look at it again and not dismiss it totally because although I detected a slight but crucial lack of g/stoke depth and ability to consistently boom the b-line - (this element was rectified when I went with the APD, though it sure didn't feel anywhere near as good - and it was also the case with the PC+, which felt better and had increased accuracy over the APD) - this aside, the Fischer is a beautiful, classy, just too special a frame to dismiss out of hand just yet. I'm also aware that set up could make a big difference here.

"Cough, cough"...

Equally, I do also perhaps think I should just forget entirely about impact feel, sweet swinging, great targeting, beautiful Austrian quality build, and any deluded beliefs on my capacity to effectively wield a frame designed for higher level players etc, and just ear-mark the PD+ and go all out for 100 per cent maximum undiluted g/stroke and b-line power/spin, with virtually no other considerations!
