    Remember, it's the player, not the racket.

    That's why for one thing, never read too much into the hype of any new product (in general) before it comes out.

    Why didn't anyone tell me this? I've been buying racket after racket hoping to get better each time I bought a new one. ;)

    Anyways, each person has their own preference. If you prefer one racket over another, good for you. I personally don't buy a new racket unless I've played with it for a good while, 2 weeks at least, to test it out.

    Do they have a 'try before you buy' system in the US? The only way here to try new rackets out is to swap them around amongst friends. Heck, you can't even buy most brands here, let alone get to try them out for weeks before actually buying them.

    Man, you Ausies... You like to swap around...
    In most of the major cities here in US has big club and pro shop has racquets you can demo. Most of the shop in SE Asia has similar policy. We don't need to swap unless we want to...;)

    Nope, it depends on who you know (friends, shop owners, etc.). There are demo rackets though that they some times lend out.

    thanks ants looking forward to it

    Rather have a review which was accurate than having a review in which is half done and rushed

    It would of been best if you told us earlier about the update because your intial post said the review would of been ready in a few days (from the date of post), and past a few.

    This type of guerrilla marketing is really starting to piss me off.

    Easy on me Tiger :)

    Matt : I understand your predicament. However like what i've mentioned... the string snapped. And i dont have time to have it strung. Added to that the requirements is to have it strung on ESPRO machine ONLY. I can always just do it manual stringing. I'm just keeping it to the requirements

    I dont have time for those at the moment. I dont have to explain things to everyone and yet i do not need satisfy everybody. And i totally understand that. You guys are free to express your rants and dissatisfaction. :)

    Probably next time i should not post a review thread yet before the review is out.

    Twobeer : You might have a point there.

    Meanwhile just enjoy the WC at the moment. :)

    yeh ants doesn't have to give a review of any racquet but he takes it out of his free time to do his best and give you lot something to think about before you go out and buy a racquet
    You just have to be patient ants is a busy person
