I used to play with oliver mc5 with a 14x18 string pattern, it says 105 grams raw frame weight, but it weighs in at 140 grams with bumpers, grommets, string, grip and buttcap,so in reality a headlight 140gram racket.

I used to enjoy playing with as the lightness of the racket made it easy for me to get out of trouble with the flick of a wrist, but as time went by I outgrew that racket, or I decided to explore other sides of my game, and i found that karakal sx-100 was a better tool for me to that, i find that lobing, drop shots and trick boast comes easier for me  with the karakal than the oliver, as it a more controlled racket (due to a denser string pattern (14x19) and smaller headsize..) ..still the mc5 is a nice lightweight  headlight racket with plenty of power, the handle is square, but not as square as head rackets tend to be..

All in all, a nice racket, but I recommend trying one on court to see if it suits your game, maybe it do, maybe it don't - c'est la vie
