I bought this racket on eBay as I was browsing through and put a random bid on and ended up getting a bargain in comparison to the price these go for (Around £115 RRP I got this for £50, sorry I don't know what this is in other currencies!)
Wish I hadn't put a bid on. At first, I was really looking forward to getting on court with this, but after my first few strikes with the racket, I knew it wasn't for me. I just wasn't getting the power in my shots as I do with my Hot Melt Pro.
The racket, as stated above, has adjustable weights, the grips can be changed to change the weight of the racket:
- Head-Heavy racket = 140g
- Even balance = 150g
- Head-light = 160g
So if you're a fan of head-light rackets, I suggest you stay away from this, 160g is a joke in my opinion, for the price of this racket. The grips are also quite large, and I prefer a thin grip so again this is not for me!
- Quite a large sweet-spot so there is no vibration in the shots
- Dunlop are known for their durability
- Ok if you like head-heavy rackets
- You cannot re-grip your racket slightly up the shaft. If you do, you can't change grips over without removing the grip!
- There is so much better out there for the price
- It's a gimmick. One step too far with the changeable grips in my opinion.
Sorry it's not totally thorough but I hope this helps for a few people. I've just bought a Prince O3 tour, which I'm really looking forward to using. Let's hope it's a bit better than the ICE Custom Elite!!
