Played one set of doubles with the Black Magic strung racquet last. Great for a poly, strung low there was plenty of comfort and pop. I would say spin was well above average and volleys were well controlled with plenty of feel. I did like the set up but it compares in no way to my Klip Legend/Outlast set up. Strung at 51/46 that set up is simply amazing. It actually had more spin than the full Black Magic. Obviously more pop but in a controlled manner due to the spin capability and feel and comfort were superb. I also just love that solid thwack sound the gut creates at contact. I have to say gut/poly is the way to go in this stick and don't be afraid to string low. May try Black Magic as my cross I just wish it came in a thinner gauge.
