Before I blow my $60, I'd like to know if any of you have tried this racket, or know anyone who has and told you his/her opinion of it.
I'm kinda poor, so I'd hate to waste my money.
It's not the 40 dollar version, but the 59.95 version.
I"m considering my old age, 65, my declining vision, my need for a bit of a first flat serve, and clean volleys of course.
I do have an MGRadOS, but it doesn't serve fast for me, being very flexible and comfortable, and standard length.
Thanks for any opinions, even in jest.

Hybrid shark os is basically like any other "granny stick" to be quite honest, but if that's what you're looking for, it's solid feeling and very maneuverable.

Thanks.
I AM a granny level player. Who at 65 isn't?
I was hoping the advertised 65 RA and 323 SW might work for me, since I like the SW and my MGRadOS is around 60 in RA.

I've strung a lot of these and that frame needs to have tubing placed on the strings in the O Ports at the top of the frame or sooner or later the strings will rub so must the wear through the frame and break the strings.

Agree. The port grommets have a poor design and if you hit with pace you WILL burn through strings.

Thanks guys, about the need for tubing.
I don't string anymore, so it would be prohibitively expensing to have my stringer add tubing AND charge for string a labor, for a $60 racket.

If you're looking for something in that spec range, I'd look at the o3 red and blue models. They have a slightly better design and better comfort due to the full ports all around.

I was hoping for the wider top of the head for serving.
And, I"m cheap...or don't have $$$$ to spend for my 12th racket.
I seem to have problems holding my left arm up to shave and brush my teeth lately, so the service is about down the drain. Hoping big and long, and somewhat aerodynamic, would bring back some lost service speed.
Red is a consideration, possibly with 4" of lead tape on the 10-2 position. But it's another 20 bucks in the wrong direction.

If you can find the DB shark OS that might fit the bill. It doesn't have O ports. Has a good amount of zipp.
