    Professional training, one of my coaches who was in Poland's national team liked the racket. He never struggled with it.

    I used it again yesterday for a singles game. Long story short, when you hit extremely - and I can't stress this enough - accurate, you have everything a player wants from a racket: power, accuracy and speed, but when you do not...

    Numb. I tend to notice that when players with insufficient skill try to use the racket, their smashes lack steepness and end up coming in very flat (which actually works well against me funnily enough because I'm crap at body blocks with my left).

    Needless to say I spent the first set playing catch up and getting used to the racket again...

    Exactly - there are no "OK" shots with this thing.

    Yes, I'm having a love-hate relationship with this racket. There's times when everything's absolutely right and then there's times where I'd love to bang this little piece of sh*t on the floor... :D

    You should scream more- gets the hits all the time, everytime.

    Lol mate, there is no string such as Bg80 force, only normal Bg80 and Bg80 power. And I don't think string will affect your racket's stiffness, only control, placement, power, hitting feel etc..

    Strange if you feel Bg80 is soft, or you can try to string higher to 27-28lbs, if still feeling soft with higher tension then you should find another decent stringer IMO. And Bg66 force definitely will not harder than Bg80 i can assure you..

    Ahh that's clearer picture now, just get rid of that useless Bg80 power, it has nothing similar to normal Bg80, very slippery, tension retention is bad, try Bg80, its good.
