Brought this racket as it has the vibration absorption material connecting the frame and the handle. Used to use a Wilson Triad 3.0 and this is a good replacement. It brings more control and more topspin potential. It is light and has good maneuverability. Less vibration than other rackets I've tried. Feels solid on all strokes, although control on drop shots needs work. Serves well, can get spin going and power too. Good sized beam - not to wide, not too narrow. About right amount of power. Good on off-centre shots. Volleying is good, nice control but need to temper the power and use angles or it can go long. Great value for money as it is an "older model" - couldn't really find anything like it - reading the Tennis Warehouse reviews there was nothing that seemed to provide the comfort (eg Volkl's). Finish of the racket looks a bit odd in the throat - doesn't affect the play but not a smooth shiny surface like the rest of the racket. It is headlight but with lead tape can be easily tailored without huge increases in the weight/swingweight. At 50 the arm isn't what it used to be so it is great for me. Play about 4 - 6 sets a week with it. I'd buy another - I guess that is the real test. Finding the perfect racket is hard to do. Happy hunting.
