Now let me say i was really impressed by this racquet. My friend let me try it out today since he was demoing it and it hit like a dream. It isnt as demanding to play with compared to my rdx's and directional control was so precise. You definately have to generate your own power but that wasnt a problem. My style of play involves very loopy hit balls that feel pretty heavy. My forehand is similar to that of nadal's. With the flexpoint..i dont know what it was but all my shots were straight power shots with plenty of spin. Im guessing the 18x20 pattern helped flatten out my shots by not having too much bite into the ball but i did like it. I only hit with it for like 20 minutes so i dont have too much to say but i really enjoyed hitting with it. Now if only i didnt have 3 rdx's..id try it out more and maybe make a switch.
