Great write up corkscrew! I think your issues with blocking back hard returns is simply a matter of adjusting to the racquet and giving it some time. I had an issue at first with the Ex 2.0 MP on going for hard shots down the line. I kept hitting wide and long. This racquet does feel like there's some flex in there, do you agree? That and the additional swingweight was causing me to be a little late. But after getting used to it, I started nailing the dtl shots like normal. Like you, I struggled with serve at first too, but that came eventually, just like the blocked returns will for you. The EMP seems to be weighted in a polarized way, which may cause some adjustment period for some. It really does feel like a Rad Pro without the super flexy-ness to me.
