funny post PP
seriously though, I am very impressed with the Steam 99s. It seems like a great fit for my game. Its like a "super tweener". But all gimmicks aside, its a solid racquet with nice feel and power. The swingweight of my demo is spot on perfect. It adds a little more spin to my shots and I think this stick will be even better with my own string choices. An added bonus too for us home stringers...just 15 crosses to worry about
