Just thought it would be nice to have a thread where ppl familiar with the DR7 might share a few opinions, experiences, etc. For me, I have been on a long period of testing out frames which fulfill a certain criteria (soft & flexy feel, lowish stiffness RA, 93" - 98" head size, very stable & solid, highish SW, decent static weight, and hits a very heavy b-line groundie and serves bombs... don't ask for much, do I? :roll: ) Although I ultimately settled on a different frame, I was highly impressed - as well as slightly puzzled - by the RD7, which I eventually got my hands on for the very 1st time just after Christmas. It was unbelievably solid and stable (like hitting with a frame made of kryptonite!), felt wonderfully buttery and lush (like hitting with a big fluffy pillow!), and most surprising for me - it served absolute bombs (I was serving big, big mph, as well as getting tremendous placement and spin - and ordinarily I'm not the fastest nor generally best server around). On the 'cons' side of things, I found it more than a bit unpredictable and difficult to fathom (on occasions I was just left shaking my head as a simple rally ball fh blasted 5 feet over the b-line, or a easy slice bh went diving into the net.) Worst of all for me though, was anything sent short and low over the net where I had to run on to it, was a point to my opponent. So, I'm afraid I found it a bit log-like in this respect. Anyhow, not least because of the feel and serve bombing capabilities, I do intend to have a little noodle round with this in the near future. But in the meantime, if any of you might care to share some thoughts on this somewhat unique frame, that would be cool. First of all however, does anyone have the stats for this racquet? I'm very keen to know what they are! Secondly, why does it serve so well?! (Or is it just me who thinks this?) R. PLEASE SHARE ANY AND ALL THOUGHTS ON THIS, AHEM, 'SPECIAL' ROD... I THINK SOMEONE ONCE DESCRIBED IT AS PLAYING LIKE A 'BI-POLAR BEAR!... LOL!
