I own this frame for 7 years now - but I havent played it for years. Yesterday I tried it again - and wow. I just want everyone who hasnt tested this frame yet to test it. It is something else. It is fun.

Who still plays with this frame?
Though I would never go below 26kg with this one. The stock version is ideal for me, its not heavy but it feels really solid for the low wight it has.

I have one...haven’t played with it in years though. The oversized is just too big for me now. :(

Cool paint job on this though

Well recently does both of mine. Really liked them but OS too big overall. I like the MP better and really like the Mg rad pro even more.

This is the racket I’d suggest for every middle age woman starting tennis. I think men would do better starting with a classic mid.

Too many get sucked down the Babolat path before their arms are ready for it.

They say its a 104 - but comparing it to my Blade 104 the sweet spot feels bigger. I would give it 105.. its similar to prince o3 red - if we talk about sweetspot - everything else is different.

There’s probably like 5 guys on my team of around 20 that use this racquet. They’re all rated 4.0-4.5 and hit great with it. I used it many years ago. It’s a great racquet that new won’t set you back but $75.

OS racquets are incredibly underrated!! Big sweetspot, light but low powered(meaning excellent control)if it's something like the Radical which has the 18x20 pattern and high flex.

played with it a few days ago and you know - i know exactly where the ball will land - nice frame - surprisingly big sweet spot and contorl combination. Its only slugish on serves - thats all.

This was my exact experience too. I was surprised by my lack of service punch.

The frame is the best frame I’ve ever hit with.

BUT I and many others have noted that it seems to have structural problems. I broke 2 of them, snapping in the exact same spot at the neck just above the handle. Both broke in 2-3 weeks of ordinary play. Quick search online confirmed other people experiencing the exact same defect.

Buyer beware. Love the racket but don’t think it can hold up to the stress.

If you like this racket but find it snapping on you like it I did, Try out the Prince Phantom Pro 100. I did a lot of searching before I found the PPP100. It is a modern version of the MG OS (minus the OS, but it’s wider head shape renders that irrelevant).
