i just received one of these racquets for trying and it is amazing. I have hit with the ozone tour which is a bit lighter, but still a good racquet. I think that this racquet plays exceptionally well. You would never guess the racket is 11.7 ounces when you are swinging it bc/ of the design. Just thought id throw this out that this racket is very nice and players might want to look into it. Also i was hoping for any responses for those that use or have tried it.
