Thank you both, guys.Needless to say, the feel is definitely there. I don't have the 252 leaded up to match the specs of my old black/red, but I have no doubt the platform is there to do that. my black/red is the 330g heavier version that was released and hits a very, very heavy ball, but I'm not really cut out to swing that frame anymore for extended periods, so I won't be taking the 252 back to those specs. I can tell you that the new grip system is really, really something as far as feel and the cosmetics, well... Top notch. If I end up leading one up to match I will let you know, but I really think you'd be missing out not trying it if you are a fan of that mold....
I switch between the VT98Pro and the Red/Silver P1, both 330g and been playing with them for about four years now so weight is not an issue for me (not with a 12HL balance unstrung anyway). I have also a 320g black/red P1 which is too light for me and its my fiancees go-to racquet. VT98Pro/P1 is one of the few frames stability wise I play with no lead whatsoever and in combination with its smooth feel its essentially my holy grail... If You have a chance to bring the 252 to the original weight/balance I'll be happy to read about it
Feel is what matters most, anyway, and I'm glad to learn its definitely there. A lot to look forward to. If You have the chance to bring #252 to the original weight/balance I'll be all over Your review
