I had a long work-out with the V1 MP the last couple days and the results were mixed. Biggest problem I had was when hitting my slice backhand. It was okay when I was just chipping or dinking the ball but when I tried to hit it deep to the baseline; I couldn't drive through the ball and caught myself flicking at it in order to get depth. It was strung with a poly (not sure of which one or what tension - probably around 53-55). Maybe I could get more out of a livelier string at a lower tension, but I'm not sure if that'll work out overall.
