Yes I can handle the sw of the Extreme, but I don't know if I "prefer" it?. I tend to tire in later sets, especially in the summer and that's when the lower swingweight would help out. It seems like my magic # is 325.
I am currently in a quandary with my Extreme's because I have been losing matches horribly lately, even though I like the racquet, something about it is not translating to success on the court? The other night I lost 7-5, 0-6,0-6.
I can't remember the last time I got double bageled! I am going back to the Donnay F100 just to see if anything changes. I think the Donnay is more tweener like and user friendly for me.
I agree with Jack - my magic swing weight is mid-320s. I currently am down to 1 BLX Blade, and while I love the power and control, I played 3 times in 2 days and my arm/wrist was VERY sore. If the new 16x19 comes in around 11.3 or 11.4 oz strung, has low - medium power, and has a swing weight around 325, I may already have found a new racquet.
