Its been almost 9mths since I got this POG OS . I wasnt too comfortable about playing with it as I used to play with the head Radical Tour OS and was more forgiving . The folks at TW asked me persist with POG and iron out my shot mechanics and ive seen some positive changes . After 9 months , I like the racquet better . I ve observed the following : The optimal string tension for me was 56-57 . I tried string this initially around 65 and was not feeling comfortable . 1 . I have a kickserver , I was able to generate more spin . 2 . Forehands have more topspin and bite. All in all it seems to be a more friendlier stick now. I dont think I am gonna revert to my old racquet . One a different note I see players in my club (irrespective of their game ) make it a point to upgrade their racquets . What should be the prime motive to move to a newer type of racquet ? Is there a newer type of racquet that plays similar to the POG ?
