Pacific X Force Pro - users/opinions etc

Firstly, I've come to this frame via the siver/red Fischer Pro No 1 (or VT Pro 98, which is same as the silver/red apparently), and the XFP is in turn I believe the same as the Fischer Black Granite frame.

Whatever - I have to say I was blown away by how good a serve frame this was for me. This thing just tees off so nicely and thumps the heck out of the ball with effortless high velocity oomph and great placement. As I was hoping for a little added pop coming off the Pro No 1, this aspect has made me happy and eagerly anticipating a second session with it.

In other respects it reminded me a lot of the Pro No 1... great build quality, plowy solidness and stability, very nice feel, good accuracy and control, crispy string-bed sensation, the same low powered performance, albeit with a bit more oomph/slightly stiffer response.

I did find I was hitting a tad shallower than I like on g/strokes, and it seemed a bit heavier somehow than I was anticipating, however, I was playing in very humid conditions and obviously need more time to dial in my strokes and get used to it.

So, to all you XFP users, or people who've checked this racket out, what are your considered opinions?... BTW, what are set up recommendations too?

TIA

I demoed the X Force Pro, and I was very impressed. The weight was perfect for me, it had good control, it was forgiving, had power when I needed it, and had better feel than any other racquet I tried. You mentioned it was a great serving racquet, but oddly enough, I picked the Pro Kennex Ki 5x over it because the PK was better on the serve. The PK's feel wasn't as good, but it had just a little more pop which helped on the serve.

Pacific does seem to make good quality racquets. I wish they had some player's spec racquets in extended length.

As I said, it just served so well, noticeably better than anything else I've played in a long time, well... I hope it wasn't some weird one off or somehow due to the unusual conditions - lol!

Out of about 6 or 7 racquets I tested, the only ones that served better than the X Force Pro were the Ki 5 and the Ki 5x. So I'm actually in agreement that the X Force Pro is great for serves. I just happened to pick one of the few players spec frames that serve even better for me.
