Comments: I demoed several racquets and this was the cheapest of the four.  It felt good right at the start so I bought it.  I have been improving a lot since then.  After 9 months with this racquet, I am going to upgrade one last time.  This racquet will be my backup racquet.  I really like this racquet so I am purchasing another Gearbox racquet.  I like that they are not flashy like other brands.  I improved my consistency and control... though I have never been a big power player.  I am hoping to get a little more power from my next Gearbox racquet.  I will let you know!
