I'm currently playing with the Type C 98 and really like the flex and feel but may be interested in trying the Type R because of the weight and string pattern (Type C 18x20 and Type R 16x20). I like to play a net game and the C seems pretty sluggish at net (swing weight 332). Has anyone hit with both? Is the feel of the R close to the C? Is the R easier to move? Is the R as solid as the C? One other question. Can someone tell me how these compare to the Volkl C10. Thanks for the help.
