I hit with a semi-western FH and had my share of deep in balls, as well as a number hit just long. The spin is still very good. I also hit with a 1HBH and there were both good and bad shots; in the high-level singles and doubles matches I played, footwork was the difference. Best advice is to demo; I'm surprised that TW is late to the party with demos, as I had to go elsewhere. I love the Blade 98 (black & gold) for singles; not so much for doubles. Hopefully, my modded Graphene MP can do both.
