  • Has anyone been able to get their hands on one of these? I am in the US, and I haven’t been able to find a retailer for them and am wary of purchasing one without being able to try them out, not to mention the overseas delivery.

      • I broke down and finally ordered the X Lite 110 Control racket from Eye’s website. The racket arrived exactly a week from the day that it shipped. The rackets do not come with a cover, and it was shipped in a collapsed cardboard box that had the edges taped together, which terrified me when I first saw it sitting on my front porch. Their customer service rep was very helpful with my questions during the ordering and shipping process. Overall, I am enjoying the racket very, very much. I was previously playing with the Head Xenon 135, and the weight difference is noticeable, and it does allow for much easier volleying and “wristed” shots. It is relatively flexible, much more so than the Head and Prince rackets I have played with beforehand. I am a little worried about how quickly it will crack on me given the light weight, but once I get used to it, I am almost certainly going to buy an extra pair of these.

          I am interested in trying these if for no other reason than to have something different that you can’t get in this country ;o)

          Currently using the Head Graphene Cyano 115 but long time user of the “Xenon” frame style.

        • Thanks Hushmi!
