I think a gut/poly hybrid in this frame would be simply incredible, and the spin potential would be even higher than full poly. Only problem is the question of durability and costs.

I personally have always liked more open string patterns and looks forward to demoing these new patterns when they come out.
I think you'll love this frame, considering you enjoyed the o-ports frames.... I believe the Black???

I think players will actually get more penetration, as evidenced by the height trajectory shown in all the playtesters data. That said, I do think the average mph will be lower.

Remember, not only does this racquet create more spin, it also creates more lift over the net, resulting in deeper shots.
