Had a great outing tonite with the Pro 1. Played a 4.0 league singles match against a guy who was a finalist twice in 3.5 and came in 1st in his division in 4.0 last 2 seasons. I lost 5-7, 5-7, but I pushed him are
to his limit. I was actually up 5-2 in the 1st and 3-0 in the 2nd. I have to learn to hold a lead! Anyway the Pro 1 did everything I asked of it...no complaints. That racquet just feels sooooo solid and nice on contact and I am getting used to the swingweight. I never once had the feeling that the racquet was too heavy and we had some grinding long games and points. The Pro 1 was only strung up with some ordinary syngut and it felt great. The Pro is leading the pack right now for sure.
Tomorrow I will be trying out the Rebel 98 I just strung. I put in the string inserts and strung it with Scorpion/multi hybrid. We'll see how that plays. I am hoping the string holes will crisp up the racquet some and take away some of that muted feeling.
to see what I'm up to lately:
