I can't find it for under $100 even unstrung, but maybe I'm just not looking hard enough...

I hear this Rackets better if you add your own strings but I might just get it with strings and do the string job myself..

Woot won't let me have a cool signature

This raquest has a big sweet spot so it's easier to hit a powerful shot and keep the ball in play.

If you want to turn it into a more versatile raquet string it up tight with some synthetic gut strings, or if you're really into tennis (unlikely if you're using this raquet) cross string it with the something more durable or powerful.

I got this and used it in a tennis practice last week. It's appropriate for a player with a shorter swing, and it offers noticeable more "bounce" than my L1 Head racquet. I'm not sure if it's really good for me as a 3.0 player, but I think using it in Singles play might be good as it does give me more power from the baseline. Anyways, if you're a beginner, it's not a bad racquet to get.

HAHA I actually tried to go back and edit my post. I thought I really had typed 'a elf'. First of all that's bad grammer woot.you should fix that. Apparently Newb (with oo instead of ew) ='elf'. Clever.

This is for a great beginner, 'C-B" player. Restringing to your best tension is a good idea, but probably won't NEED to for a while, the pop on these strings will be good.
The Ugly....only 119 units sold and no larger grips left. Hope the ladies, kids and small handed folks enjoy. I'd be in for two, but hey...you know

This is a strange racquet and one that hasn't sold well because of one major reason.

The power in this racquet is clearly very high and made for beginners (2.5 to 3.5 NTRP) but the weighting is really head heavy which makes it hard to get around...especially for beginners who likely aren't "tennis strong" and used to whipping a head heavy racquet through shots.

So in other words, the power is for beginners, the frame weighting is for an experienced player...thus the problem.

You can adjust the power by stringing it on the high side, but I find that most beginners don't like the "board" feel you get from a racquet strung that high.

If you are a "stronger" beginning tennis player who has no trouble muscling the head heavy frame through shots, this is a good deal. For all others, I don't recommend it.

Some additional good news is that most "decent" tennis stores will probably still have it on the shelf and you could demo it today...in general, I never recommend anyone but the most beginnning tennis player buy a racquet without a demo...as touch and feel is so unique to the individual.

Happy Holidays!

Does this come with a full racquet Head cover or just a racquet head cover?
