I often use 14x18 racquets that are "string eaters." This takes it to a new level. The one I mentioned is 14x18 and has 1/2 the wear in six times the playing.

I agree. I already own my own stringer and am accustomed to the idea of having multiple racquets. I can't imagine anyone paying to have this strung that often at a shop. It would easily be $80-$100 a month.

I have long strokes and have never used a tweener that I felt like I could play with. All the others I felt like I had to hold back and just dink the shot in. No racquet head speed. Not so with this. I could take a full stroke. Also in my demo box were a few racquets that are more like what I often play with including a Prince Rebel 95 strung with Beast and a Wilson Six.One 95 16x18 with Savage Lime. I was getting good spin with the Rebel - about as much as my Diablo. I sent less shots long with the 99s than either of those and had much more net clearance. I can see it being a problem if you don't hit with spin, but found it very easy to keep it in
Let's try this Textreme 95 for a while.
