Okay.... I'm 59, and I haven't played seriously in 9 years. But, I was my club champ and for 2 years was undefeated.... So, I don't suck. I'm also not so great. But I was in great shape, competed well, and played smart And being a lefty, I'm amazed how often righties don't remember that and constantly set me up I bought a head radical pro MP 3 years ago before an unrelated injury prevented me from coming back. And.... I hate it. It feels like a board, and every friend of mine who's tried it agrees. Most of my friends play K six one 90 tours, which feel a lot better to me. Anyway, I'm definitely not in match shape, but I'm working on it. So.... Here's my feeling: I've demoed many light frames and my current favorite is the Dunlop 4D 500 tour. I used it again today as well as the K six one 95, 16 X 19. Here's where my analogy to shape skis come in. Anyone who can ski well and has tried shape skis realizes immediately that they require much less work than old school, (read traditional player's racquet), skis to work. Now, some people feel it's like cheating, because it's so much easier. Seems people feel the same way about light racquets. I don't care what frame I'm supposed to use. I'm going to use the one that works best for me. With very little effort the Dunlop 4D 500 tour did a lot of work for me. As long as I didn't take too long a backswing, it was great. For that matter, the K 6.1 95 sprayed balls all over the place when I lengthened my swing. At least this demo version had absolutely no more control... for me. And if I'm pulled out of position, the lighter frame is far superior. Even my mishits seem to make it over the net. I'm still not sure what my new frame will be, but I think there's something to be said for a racquet that's so easy to work with. Yes, It's a stiff racquet, but it's so easy to use, you can relax your hand and let it work So, especially if you not 20 years old and coming back to the game, I'd seriously look at some lighter frames. It's not cheating.
