Should be a good fit for what you are trying to do.
Close to lots of shopping and there's a college near by so it would be easy to rent.

Extreme plays very similar to babolat pure drive, the only problem is the handle ( I hate it). Djokovic racket is pretty stiff but if that is a problem I'd recommend 16x19 string pattern. I used both and head sent me as a sponsorship 16x19 by accident and I was very mad at first, but now I LOVE IT.

No problemo. You should let me know which racquet you end up buying. We will play one day. One day.

Yes it has a rather average to heavy weight but I read comments that it's not very hard on the arm and it swings freely, which is kinda weird. Anyways, I think I should be going for more control now but I'll just try to demo this racquet and see what happens. Thanks for the input.

Oh, I forgot to give you a hug for no apparent reason.

I don't know where you read reviews on this Extreme Pro, but from all the reviews I have read, I am pretty sure the racquet is pretty swing-weight heavy and pretty powerful (contrary to what you said).

It depends what you are looking for in your game. Power or control? When I started playing tennis, I used a lighter stick with a lot of power. However, as I started playing tournaments and got much better, I had to ditch my tweener stick and get a much, much heavier racquet with control-oriented specs (being low-powered is generally one of them—you can't really have both) since my powerful tweener stick always made me hit shots long or into the roof.

Once you can generate your own power, then go for a control-oriented racquet. According to TW and customer reviews, this Extreme Pro racquet has a lot of power. Play-testers on TW said they found it difficult to control the ball from the baseline. It has a lot of power and less control (keep in mind I'm comparing this to usual player's racquet).

However, like I said before, it's what you're looking for. If you're not playing at a very high level yet (not looking for control), then it should be fine.

Good luck bro.

P.S. I want to get the Djokovic racquet although I heard they're a little stiff; yes, I'm a little biased sometimes because of the cosmetics. But I hear they're pretty neat. That or the Midplus from the Prestige series. Maria's coming out with a new racquet in July too.

Thoughts on this racquet?

So I'm probably going to buy a new racquet very soon and the new HEAD racquets look very good (I mean the ones Djokovic, Azarenka, etc use).
I'm thinking about buying this one:

Why? Because it isn't that heavy and swings easily (judging from the details on that page) which is important for me. Although the customer reviews on TW also suggest that this racquet (and the one Novak uses) are rather underpowered.

So does anyone who owns or has demoed this racquet have thoughts/recommendations on it?
