Comments: Very difficult to make power.  Hitting off the back wall, or a quick corner backhand always leaves doubt about whether the ball will make the distance.  On the flip side, I can get this into position very quickly. I had it restrung at a very reputable and long time restringer in Plano, TX.  He tested the factory pressure to be 17lbs, so he restrung it and the result? 17lbs again.  Makes me question either this veteran restringer, which is all he does all day, or the frame somehow not holding tension.
