The frame is very nice.

If I win in two, will be pulling out a PB Mid 10 for a 3rd set!

ps. on the 99S, over two demo stints (one with blacked out tester, the second with retail version) I have played 11 competitive singles sets, 6 competitive doubles, three Mix-In/Club Socials (around 3 hours each) plus some general wall hitting and knock-ups. It is definitely a grower and I like it. Haven't ruled it out but got a feeling the non-S might be the one for me.
Does the non-S feel and swing exactly like the S? It should right, since the only difference is the pattern?
to see what I'm up to lately:
