Loved the racquet to death... I'm getting old and just couldn't handle the weight anymore. Honestly, after playing with the Ultra 2 for a while (*previous racquet was the St. Vincent Pro Staff 85 which I loved but didn't compare in power against the Ultra 2), I had a hard time adjusting to the new racquets. They all felt flimsy. Such a solid racquet. Probably one of the best ever made. Just wish I was a good enough player to play with the stick. Loved the tennis ball crushing "THWAK" sound it made.
Glenn Michibata after he lost to Mecir sums up how many players felt about playing against Mecir: “Playing him is like bleeding to death.”
