it's a lot more powerful than i was expecting and this is with full poly. with full multi or syn gut it might be too much - at least for me.

spin is very good but not quite standout. it's not as good at spin as say an exo3 tour, or juice 100, or aeropro drive, or pure drive. i wanna try 18 gauge string and see if i can get a little more spin. it's an open pattern but it seems a little densely packed in the center of the racquet.

stability is really really good. it plays like a 12 ounce racquet in terms of stability and solid feel. i think because of the balance it also makes it feel slightly sluggish. TW lists the swingweight at 311 but my two feel much much more sluggish than that.

quality control on these seem less than stellar. i have full poly in both sticks. same tension. no overgrips. boris becker vibe damp. one stick weighs 318 grams. the other 327 grams.

can any other owners weigh their londons please?
the London IS very dense in the middle....similar to a 18 x 20....that's what makes spin a little tougher. Its great for flatter hitters though. But yes, it can be overly powerful with the wrong setup.
to see what I'm up to lately:
