I liked the racquet but sold it after a couple of weeks. Not because it was a rocket launcher, but because I thought it was too spinny.
And I am almost the opposite grip with a Eastern/Continental forehand grip, sort of between the two and I have no problem controlling the ball. I also have a 1HBH with an Eastern grip and no issues. Of course I blast a ball of the fence once in a while, but it can happen with any frame. I find far far more control with the Steam 99s and 105s then any other Yonex frame I have ever played, which is why I switched.
