Comments: Have to echo Jay's comments. This racquet plays as well if not better than some "high" end racquets.  Bought this 195 after a shoulder injury wasn't letting me get any power out of my lighter racquets. Not only is it hard hitting but offers excellent control as well.  May be inexpensive but it's not cheap. Shelved my Apocalypse for this PK.

Comments: I love this racquet. I bought it for my wife but she doesn't play much so I carried it around as a backup. Then I broke a string on my high-end racquet and had to play with this one while mine was being restrung. My back wall play improved immediately - suddenly I was consistently killing the ceiling balls that were just long and the digs out of the corner. I don't know why - maybe the even balance of this racquet gives me better wrist action on restricted swings or perhaps the weight gives me just a bit more power when I can't take a full swing. Either way, I'm now playing with this one, even though I've got my high-end racquet back.

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.
