I also demoed the Exo Tour (don't remember which pattern) but hated that as well. It was strung w/ a poly though, and I also hate polys.
But I don't even like demoing anymore. The T-7 is the first time ever that, when I lose, I don't even consider questioning the racquet. I just know it's the ideal racquet for my style of play. I don't see myself switching anytime soon. I have 7 of them and a boat load of replacement grommet sets for them.
The Exo Tour is a unique frame. I hated the 18x20 but the 16x18 is good enough for me. I'm having problems with my forehand lately using it but it could be due to the new strings.

I bought 3 stock Exos a few months ago. A few weeks ago, I bought a used one with a leather grip and lead tape. I tried it out but did not like the balance. So I ordered a new replacement grip from TW, ripped off the lead tape and played with the leather grip a few times while I waited for it to come in. It plays better for me stock with no customization.
