Comments: I played this stick as a demo. The weight on the frame reads 10.7 oz and it
definitely doesn't spec out like the retail websites say.
Comments: As I age somewhat, I have moved more into doubles and was experimenting with different
models of Prince, Babolat, and Wilson with varying feelings about them. Mainly the ones I tried were too stiff in the
frames and felt it up my arm into the elbow. I read about this racquet in a review and liked the specs, including it was
at least under 100sq. I saw it on the internet at a low cost and figured what the heck and bought it. I was not
overwhelmed playing it at first but it was okay. But as I played a few weeks with it, I came to really like the feel,
responsiveness and spin. When I jump on it there is good power with good control. It has nice touch and
maneuverability at the net. At first I didn't like serving with it, but with time my serves have improved, especially the
movement on my second serves. I "may" someday move on, but for now I am very pleased with this one and glad I
ventured to give it a try.
Comments: I'm playing with this coming from a stick that's completely
different. I was playing with the Prince Tour Diablo Mid and I still
very much love it, however, I've noticed in the last year or so the
head size was simply getting much too small for me and I was shanking
more and more. As a result, I decided to go for something larger. I
remember the Black Racquet play test and was actually pretty excited
when that was announced. So, on a whim I bought the RZR 98T, but had
it weighed to the specs I had my Diablo at (362g static weight/343g
Swing Weight/31.9cm Balance). I have to say I hated this racket for
the first few hours I played, but once I found my groove with it, I
was hitting with more pace, more spin (I do love me some spin) and
with a lot more consistency than before. My only complaint right now
is with the larger surface area, I feel a bit slower with the take
back and I'm noticing my stress on my wrist, but not to the point of
pain. I figure those complaints will probably wane as I get used to
hitting with such a large head again.
Comments: Don't let the fact that Gamma is less popular than Babolat, Wilson, and Head
keep you from trying out this racquet. It's extremely solid, with excellent feel, power, and
control. I tested the Black Racquet 98T and recently purchased the retail version and I am
thoroughly impressed with their performance. The weight can be a little extreme for those
who are not used to playing with heavy racquets or aren't strong enough to use them. But I
have had no problems with transitioning. I heavily modified my frame to reach 400g
(14.11oz) and 11.5pts HL and let the performance of the racquet speak for itself. I can hit
the ball harder, deeper, with more spin and control than I ever got with my previous
racquets. Combined with RPM Blast 17g @ 60lbs and my weight and balance modifications,
this racquet has already began to change the way I play for the better. Give it a chance! You
might be surprised!
Comments: Okay, first I'd like to say I haven't played with this specific one, but the prototype. It's
surprising how much I liked it. I never thought much of Gamma racquets, but this one caught me off guard. Overall,
you're talking about serves, volleys, forehand, etc... it's a good racquet. Not great in my opinion, but good enough. It
feels like you
can whip the racquet around rather easily and offers decent power and spin. I recommend it to people that normally
because it feels like one. And $150 is a good price for the model (compared to $200 racquets).
