Prince Diablo XP opinions?

I have an opportunity to purchase a Diablo XP at a very, very low price (clearance sale).

Since this will be my first sub-100 racquet, I would like to know how it plays. I do want to experiment on that size to help me develop my strokes more, this would be the best — and cheapest — way to get some taste of it (no demos where I am). Just want to know how playable it is for someone with probably a 3.0-3.5 rating. Will power delivery be a big issue?

I currently play with Prince EXO3 Red (105in head).

I have played with the MID version and it is one of my favorite rackets. It will not be forgiving if you hit outside of the sweet spot, but when you do it will make you feel like R.F. I'd say buy it and if its to advanced for you then you should buy it and save it until you are ready because it is a really good racket.

its obviously quite a departure from what you are used to; it will be a lot more unforgiving and will require you to swing faster to achieve the same results you get with with exo3, but if you can get hold of one on the cheap then go for it, its a very nice frame

An older racket of Prince, but still very solid. Good racket that gives a great feel when you hit right!
