After much time contemplating things, I have decided that the Donnay X-P Dual will probably be the next stick on my list. I don’t buy very many racquets (since money doesn’t grow on trees), and I originally thought the X-P Dual Tour would be Donnay’s best option to arrive in my mailbox sometime in the future. However, I now sense the X-P Dual to be my next perfect try. Although not quite as heavy as the Tour, giving away about half an ounce…11.0 to 11.5, the Dual comes in much more flexible…RA/RDC 59 compared to 67. This latter feature is the key! I can always add weight to the Dual, taking advantage of Donnay’s wonderful custom weighting kit that allows strategic placement of up to 19 additional grams (more than half an ounce) of heft without having to break out the lead tape. Nothing wrong with lead tape, mind you…it can be of great service if done correctly. But Donnay’s custom kit is a stroke of genius; check it out! So, weighting a stick down is always an option…making it more flexible, however, not so much! Hence, my suggestion would be to favor flexibility and adjust as needed in other areas. Perhaps flexibility is an important issue for Jim Courier, whose name is most associated with the Dual at the moment. Is this the case, Jim? Perhaps Mr. Courier could drop us a note and let us know why the Dual is his current racquet of choice His words of wisdom would be uber valuable! In the meantime, get ready for some dandy desert tennis catered to us by that player favorite, Indian Wells!
