For me its a winner but for others it won't do anything to there game. Luckily there's a racket out there for everyone.
Personally I think it's great for my game. I used the 99S today for the second time and the spin is just incredible; I'm hitting Nadal like spin from all areas of the court including my serve and my forehand cross court is like Chinese water torture. The angle I can create going cross court with my forehand is devastating.
The only downside is tension loss. I strung the 99S with a full bed of Luxilon ALU power at 59/60 and using the racquet for the 2nd time, the strings were moving all over the place where I had to constantly reposition my strings.
