This is a very good racquet for Professionals. For intermediate level, a little practice, will make you feel this is the best. The frame is somewhat smaller than the usual ones (Yonex muscle power 29 etc) due to the fact that it is for powerful smashes. You will miss a few shots in the beginning, but with practice, this is the best value for money racquet. I played with Yonex muscle power, nanoray, voltric series, but felt this is the best for those powerful smashes. Not suitable for beginners.
