There is an adjustment at first because the ball will have a bit higher trajectory, but that is really corrected without any thought whatsoever.

The frame is stiff (not as stiff as a PD), but plays soft. Again, the midpoint on this frame is 58, I play to string mine at 54-ish with poly or 58 with gut mains and 54 with poly crosses. I think this frame would be fantastic at lower than midpoint tension. So much so, that I have ordered two.



Thanks, that is super encouraging. I think this setup sounds great.
Yeah the higher trajectory is the only thing I am not LOVING although not terrible.

ANOTHER THING, I have tested tensions after strigning and then one play and the INITIAL drop in tension seems to drop alot and then settle but that first drop seems to be more than the normal, maybe cause of the open pattern ? Used Racquettune.

I always loved stiff frames but this frame is stiff yet soft, strange combo but very nice and welcomed. Reminds me a bit of my junior days playing the Yonex R-7 and R-22, blast from the past !!
