I am wondering if there have been any significant breakthroughs in materials/racquet technology during the past decade?
Or is it primarily marketing hype by the racquet manufacturers that have a vested interest in players buying the latest gadgets?
You're using a players frame and im sure your strokes are grooved into a 13 oz stick, the newer head heavier frames are much stiff and require full poly to maximize control. If you aren't ready to change your strokes, stick with your setup.
