So, i just demoed 4 racquets, the npro open, mfil 300, ag 300 and volkl dnx1 i love the npro (mfil was good, but i cant serve with it, and it isnt quite as controlling as the npro to me). my previous racquet was teh liquidmetal rad, but i could never serve flat with it, and i just cant stand the balence of its weight (i cant turn it over with my wrist for those special wristy shots) im 16 and am around a 4.0. i know this racquet isnt really a players racquet, and it has alot of power. i like the power for shots that i mis hit or block, as some of my best shots with this have been those which wouldnt have made it over the net with the lm rad. ps i dont like the PD. just wanted to say this racquet is a great option for those who want a solid frame that isnt quite as heavy as true players racquets, but is spin friendly, maneuverable, powerful, yet certainly is easily controlled.
