I'm going from 98 to 93 with this stick, but it's worth it. For me the serves it produces is enough for me to make the switch. I've just had to request a court in the middle of our tennis center so when I shank the ball it won't get lost in the bushes on the outside of our center. I give the surrounding courts a heads up that there will be incoming at random times.Really good stick but I need something with more real estate. 93 vs 98 makes a difference for me.
