    @TW Staff is there a firmer US launch date for the burn 95 cv yet, or is it still "march/april?"

    Does anyone play with the Burn 95 Countervail? It actually is a great racket but is weird in a way it plays, for me. Its specs hints at being a powerful racket. I, however, find it weird that it lacks power in normal rallying than it should. It does have lots of power, but I had to swing hard to get that power. Does anyone else feel that way? Maybe it’s the full poly. Maybe it’s really designed for the super aggressive baseliners who swing for the fences on every stroke?

    What are you comparing it to? It has a narrow head compared to other wilson 95 models. That seems to mute the power a bit compared to a wider frame.

    Well, I am kind of comparing it to the likes of Six One 95, Pure Strike Tour or even the RF 97 with hefty SW. It seems like the Burn 95 CV's primary function is to be maneuverable and control oriented frame. Power is there but seems to be more hidden than the above mentioned frames. Really like it a lot. Just found it a bit strange.

    It is a fair bit lighter, and if you look at the length of the balance from the buttcap it is quite a bit longer at 33.5cm compared to 31.45 for the RF. The swingweight is inflated slightly by the extra length. All that comes together, as you've found, to take a different type of swing to maximize it.

    To me heavier racquets with shorter balance swing faster, but everyone uses different mechanics.
