I finally took the racket out for a swing today at a session of doubles, and it felt gooooood!
Speed-wise it's almost up there with the lighter rackets. I was able to defend pretty well despite the head-heavy orientation. Sealing the front court with this was also quite an experience. I was able to move quick enough to attend to the net shots and drives that came my way.
However, I was really amazed by the speed this racket gets on its smashes! It came naturally, punching the shuttle hard towards the floor of the opposite side.
So far so good. Review to come!
