WHAT I THINK ABOUT TENXPRO: 

FIRST IMPRESSIONS LAST, AND THE COSMETICS WAS THE FIRST THING THAT DREW ME TO THE XCALIBRE. I TRIED THE 303g AT FIRST, BUT OPTED TO GO FOR THE 315g.THIS RACQUET REMINDED ME A LOT OF THE WILSON PRO STAFF 97, WHICH WAS MY PREVIOUS FRAME, AND I SIMPLY LOVE THE FORGIVENESS OF THIS FRAME. I’M A BIG HITTER, AND WITH THE XCALIBRE I CAN SWING FREELY ON BOTH FOREHAND AS WELL AS BACKHAND. EVEN THE SLICE BACKHAND ISN’T A PROBLEM AT ALL. I’VE ADDED 8 GRAMS OF LEAD TAPE TO THE HEAD (AT 3 & 9 O’ CLOCK), AND THE FACT THAT MOST OF THE WEIGHT IS IN THE HANDLE ALLOWS YOU TO DO THAT. EVEN AFTER ADDING THE TAPE, THE HEAD IS STILL LIGHT ENOUGH TO MANOEUVRE ON SHOTS WHERE YOU HAVE LESS TIME TO PREPARE. THE EXTRA WEIGHT JUST HELPS WITH PROVIDING THAT LITTLE BIT OF EXTRA PLOUGH-THROUGH ON GROUNDSTROKES AS WELL AS VOLLEYS, AND THE UNIFLEX TECHNOLOGY MAKES SURE THAT EVEN WITH THIS ADDED WEIGHT, ELBOW AND SHOULDER INJURIES ARE NON-EXISTANT.THE EXTRA LENGTH ALSO ASSISTS ME TO GET MORE POWER ON THE SERVES, AS WELL AS MY SINGLE-HANDED TOPSPIN BACKHAND.MY RACQUETS ARE CURRENTLY STRUNG WITH TENX FUSION BLAST AT 50 POUNDS.
