and btw, do you know why they are the number 2 brand? its because they are cheap, not because they are good
Having played with one for some time, I'd have to agree... though I wouldn't go as far as calling them complete rubbish. It's a baseliner's racquet- power hitting aka Roddick/Nadal style (which explains their choice of racquet). If you're after more variety and control, don't use a babolat.
But IMHO, if you're not a serious player, it really doesn't matter.
