The F3.0 Tour is well worth a demo in my opinion.

Hope that helps,

Thanks Chris...that helped a great deal...I appreciate you taking the time to respond.

Yea, when I demoed the 400 Tour I was surprised by how dead the upper hoop felt in stock form. I didn't care much for that racquet at all.

1 last question: I know you gave the F3.0 Tour 8.3/8.4 as far as spin, but how does the spin potential of the F3.0 Tour compared to other racquets you've tested recently (or even your C10 Pro '12)?

This is my one concern with the 18x20 string pattern on the F3.0 Tour. For most of my tennis playing career (40 years) I've used racquets with 16 mains (14 with the POG Mid) and rely heavily on both topspin and slice. With an 18 mains racquet I'm always concerned about the spin potential.

Again, thanks for taking the time to give me your input.

The world is a magical place full of people waiting to be offended by something!
