The marketing trend has been towards lighter, stiffer frames for some time now even with the players rackets. Most seem too stiff and too light to me and lack feel.

I actually used the Rossignol F200 Carbon and loved the plush, buttery feel as well as the innovative open 16/17 string pattern. The Pacific X Feel Tour is the first modern racquet I hit with that has a similar silky smooth feel. Best thing is, despite the flex and lively feel, the X Feel Tour surprisingly is as powerful as other (but stiffer and more muted feeling) modern frames.
