I just couldn't see playing a match with it because I felt like to be competitive, I would have to keep my foot on the gas. I'd love to pick one up along with this new 99S just for those days you want to kill the ball with tons of spin. It was great fun, but I didn't think I'd be able to sustain that over 3 sets.
I'm in a slump right now, so take my comments with that in mind. It did not take me long to adjust to the Exo 16x18. I played very well with it until recently. My game did change into more of a defensive retrieving style though. With the 7G, I could hit the flatter putaway shots much better. I'm still not confident enough with the Exo to attempt those type shots consistently. Many seem to go into the net when I do. So like others have mentioned, I end up putting a bunch of spin on the ball to make sure I can get it over the net. I also tend to hit more serves in the net but maybe that has something to do with going back to a regular length racket. The bottom line is that the Exo is easier on my arm and that is all I care about right now.
