So I got the racket today (Thank you dr325i !)
Looks pretty nice - looks slimmer and slicker in person than in the pictures.
Swung it once...a bit sluggish, not impressed...took off 2 grams at 12...swings fast now, but a bit too light...put 1 gram back on - WOW PERFECT.
Didn't get to actually hit the balls yet, but so far I'm impressed. This thing is uber polarized, much like my Mantis Pro 295 customization that I was looking to replicate (minus the loose string bed).
Got solid weight in hand but once in motion it is crazy swift and I could get big head speeds with very smooth load up.
Stability is solid throughout the strigbed. Top of the loop is rock solid. Just the slightest flutter around 8 and 4 of the stringbed, which is again, from polarized weight distribution.
I just hope the tight pattern will be able to make up for all that head speed and stiffness to keep the ball trajectory down and in the lines.
Pure Control Tour + leather, 5g lead up top, 16L poly @ 52lbs = 12.68oz
