It is a powerful racket if you can generate the head speed. I found that the best way to generate power is on hard incoming shots. The racket is very stable and I had no trouble hitting back to someone who was blasting bombs at me with a yellow Babolat. I play with the Max 200g Pro which is lighter and about 10pts head light (vs 5-6pt for the regular). It plays best with natural gut but a high quality multi like babolat xcel power 17 also works very well. Comparatively polyester didn't feel as good, but it was only relative to the two other strings.
