Firstly, id like to point out that i had my [K]obra restrung with Babolat Pro Hurricane 130/16 strings, which has the same shade of blue as the bodywork colour. The [K]obra is a very powerful racket, and at first it may seem that the ball wont stay in the court, however, HAVE PATIENCE, because once you master the forehand, its a formidable piece of kit. Service with this racket is extremely powerful and will instantly give you an advantage if you serve first. Second serves have a tendancy to ace the other player. The forehand, is quite difficult to hit flat as of the pure power excerted from the frame will occasionally knock the ball out the court. For the forehand, i suggest to put slight topspin on the shots as then the ball will have alot more control. The backhand of this racket surprised me to be quite honest, im used to constantly slicing my backhands, however i've started to hit them a bit harder and they are constant and accurate. On occasions, the back hand of this racket is alot more deadlier than the forehand. Groundstrokes are top notch and the racket is surprisingly agile at the net. The [K]obra can be dominant at the net aslong as you keep to slices. I personally love this racket and would recomend it to big servers and powerful groundstroke players. I rate this racket 9 out of 10.
