The strokes certainly look impressive on the surface (oh, look how hard they hit!) but they're just not consistent enough to be higher than 4.5 (there goes another easy shot long or into the net).
Spot on assessment. Zero consistency. Good strokes in spurts. At best 4.5 but I don't know many 4.5s that make that many errors. Who sees 5.0 or 5.5 and why ? No way no chance at least not the 5.0s and plus I play. Those guys wouldn't win one game against the 5.0s I know.
