Comments: I bought this racquet a few weeks ago. I was a little concerned about the 195g weight. However when I picked it up I was surprised at how light it was. The racquet basically has no vibration at all and does not need a vibration dampener. The racquet has superb feel and great control. However compared to the 175g FFT racquet it's a bit slower, obviously. Overall if you like heavier racquets this is definitely a great bargain. One thing to note though, when I shook the racquet it made a rattling sound due to some particle within the frame. I had this same problem with the E-Force racquet I was replacing. I was really irritated by the sound the E-Force racquet made and it was one the reasons why I wanted to change it. Since the ProKennex was making the same noise I decided to return it. Otherwise performance wise I liked it.
