Comments: This racquet feels well balanced, with a light head. Feel like it has a very long sweet spot. However, in terms of control and power it is poor compared to the Head Extreme 170. With this racquet, you can feel the ball stretching the strings before it flies off. In essence, I had to adjust to the delayed ball response. I switched to the Head Extreme 170, and I felt an immediate difference. The ball didn't have a chance to even stretch the string before it was flying off at blistering speed.
