Comments: I picked this stick up a couple of weeks ago, after demo'ing from RbW. I fell in love the second i played the first game. I usually prefer 175-185, for a more solid and less jarring feel, but this one plays smooth. Swapped over to this from the numerous Ektelons I've played with. Very light, forgiving, and plays perfectly for me. I did replace the Head wrap grip on the stick I bought, because it unraveled not even 5 minutes after my first game, but RbW took care of it with their awesome customer service!  You should definitely demo this monster.

Comments: This racquet has the same great feel as the Black Widow (which is what I switched from). The quality seems better already!  I will be continuing with HEAD in the future.  Great job guys, and looking forward to getting my back up as well.  I will say that I tend to prefer the tacki mac serrated grip better than this wrap grip.
