To me this racket is the perfect one. I feel very confident with it. I have the original Crucible as well (which also always felt like 'the one'), but this stripped down from bumper and grommit is waaay more maneuverable. It is easier for me to add some deception in to my game with this. I feel more comfortable with early preparations and holding the swing longer cause of the lightness. As stated in the description it sometimes is little bit less forgiving, but I'm willing to give away some of it for all the other benefits the racket gives me. Xamsa themselves have given this a 5 on the power. I'd say more like 7. Maybe it's individual to how rackets function from person to person, but a 5 on the power is to low I'd say.
