E-Force Bedlam Lite 170 Racquet
Comments: Switched to this after cracking a Stun150 twice.... Took a little getting used to. Vibrates a decent amount for than the 150 did. After some practice I have good control on forehand power shots. Kill shots are a breeze. Soft contact shots up-front are more difficult. Probably a balance difference compared.to the 150.... Reading through the comments I wonder just how hard some people have hit this racquet against a wall to break it.... Mine has taken a decent amount of abuse without breakge or any signs of bending. I'm finally re-stringing it (II have a habit of waiting to lo g to do so) and will be going with a multifiber 16 gauge. We'll see what happens.
Comments: This racquet is not well made. My first one began to bend after having it for 4 months. I called E-Force and they sent me another Bedlam for free since the frame of the racquet has a 12 month warranty. The new one began to bend in just 3 weeks. Don't buy this racquet because you won't own it for long.
Comments: This racquet is absolute garbage!! It looks good, but when you get into racquetball warfare (hitting the wall or any other light contact this racket will crumble! I have broken three (3)! It is a very fragile racket! Do not get me wrong I am a long time E-Force guy and am very happy with my Heat seekers, and my other Bedlam (older versions) rackets. The material that it is made of is terrible! Do not waste your $
Comments: I switched to E-force from Ektelon and have had this racquet for under six months and it broke up at the top. I purchased the same racquet and it broke within 3 months and at the same place. Not as thrilled with the frame but it delivered a nice shot. will look for another racquet.
Comments: I just started playing with one of these. My Invasion 175 met the wall one too many times and I didn't feel liking dropping another 220 bucks. So far I can say that I don't really like this racquet. I've had all E-Force's for the past 2 years but this one has a lot of vibration and not nearly the power. I'm sure in part it's due to going from 175 to 170 but it feels like its more than that. I did put on a python grip as I always do. I'll put a dampener on it and I'm sure it'll break in a few months. Bottom line is make sure you try before you buy one of these.
Comments: I have the older version when there were no tubes. Never liked the racquet but the racquet I play with broke so I decided I would use this one. I put a rubber grip on this one because the grip was to small for my hands. I also put a ektelon dampener on it because the vibration was ridiculous. I played today with it and I actually like it more than my ektelon that broke. I think with a better grip and a dampener the racquet is awesome. so far.
Comments: I've been playing with this racquet for about six months. Love the racquet, but as some others have said, I feel a lot of vibration, especially in off-center shots. I haven't had any problems with string or frame durability. The grip is worn out, so I'll need to replace that. Good racquet.
Comments: I've had this racquet for about 5 or 6 years and have never had any problems with it. The only reason I'm getting a new one is because the frame cracked slightly near the top. I've won a lot of tournaments with this racquet!
Comments: I bought this racquet and after hitting the ball like 5 times I broke the center string. Seems like a nice racquet but I will agree with others that you can feel the vibration.
Comments: The standard string is weakly strung and I believe that is keeping me from "feeling" the power. I am disappointed at best, wish I had gotten a heavier racquet, I feel the loss compared to my older one.
Comments: I've been playing with this racquet for a couple of months now and my game has improved partially because of the feel of the racquet. It's light but the head heavy feel generates a ton of power. You will need a good vibration dampener though. I added a head tennis racquet dampener and it completely eliminated this problem. This racquet is also very durable. Awesome value and I'll likely purchase another as back up.
Comments: I've played with this racquet for 8 games and I have already snapped a string. Really like the performance it presents but upset on the quality. Can't believe I'm paying for a restringing already.
Comments: Just bought this racquet and it is great. Kill shots, control, and the feel are great. I may buy another one as back up
Comments: I really like this racquet it was nice and lite
Comments: Great racquet...very light great control and feel...i plan on getting another one after the one i have wears out...
