Overall Rating
These rackets have held up fairly well in my high school classes. The head of the rackets flexs easily and bends. Also where the shaft connects to the head has been bending. (raquets have been used properly) The strings have held wonderfully but with the head movement causes the strings to seperate but not to break. The gripping has been great and has not fell apart or torn! The twin shaft has held up well in classes.
