Mostly good things to say about this racquet:

- The MOVE controller snaps and stays safely in the base.
- Good rubber grip on the handle on the half that's not the MOVE itself.
- Well balanced.
- About 18" long so watch the ceiling and/or the ceiling fan when you serve.
- Easy to assemble with 3 screws that seem to keep the 2 plastic halves solidly together.

On the box, it claims 'compatibility' with Grand Slam Tennis 11, Racquet Sports and Virtua Tennis 4 but I just used it with the newly-released Top Spin and it worked great.

All MOVE buttons EXCEPT for the START and SELECT can be accessed easily. For those 2 you need either long nails or slim fingers but they are not frequently accessed buttons and you don't usually need them during actual gameplay so it's only a minor fault.

I am happy with this accessory and I would recommend it to anyone who plays MOVE tennis games.

I have been playing Grand Slam Tennis 2 since the day it came out and when I saw this racquet/move holder, I ordered it right away. The control you have over the ball in this game in amazing. Top spins, slices, drops, lobs, you can hit inside out back hands and smashes that go 25 rows deep. You also control the spin, speed and direction of your Serves with the move controller. I thought adding this racquet/move holder would make the game more fun. It doesn't. Unless of course you've never played before, then I could see this item enjoyable. According to the item Specs, it only weighs 1.6 pounds, but after playing for months with the ultra light weight Move controller, once i added the Premium Racquet, it became so cumbersome, it was not manageable. Swings take longer, and you need a lot more space if you're playing doubles, unless you want to take your partners head off. Again, I think this is a great idea, but if you have played this game, then you know how fast the net volley exchanges are and how little time you have to react and return serve. I'll be giving this away as a gift, most likely to somebody I don't like so much. Thanks

CTA is continuing to come out with products that are both affordable and made with great quality. This tennis racket enhances game play by giving you a more realistic controller to use while trying to hit a virtual ball on screen. The tennis racket is a perfect size for all ages. Your $50 PlayStation Move controller fits very securely in place so you do not have to worry about anything flying off unexpectedly. The tennis racket is basically a frame for the controller, you are not using the PlayStation Move controller any differently than you would without the racket accessory. With that said, there is no need to worry about calibration issues or access to any buttons. For the full retail price, this accessory will defiantly give you a PlayStation Move tennis experience that is worth your money.

The racquet is very well constructed, and has a nice feeling in your hand. Playing tennis on the ps3 with a racquet is much better than using only the move control. All that being said, this racquet has a serious problem. The orientation is wrong, by 90 degrees!! I have all four tennis games for the ps3 (grand slam 2, top spin 4, Virtua Tennis 4 and sports champions 2), and SC2 is by far the best implementation for the move control. There is a 1 to 1 replication of your moves, and you can see the position of the racquet clearly on the screen. This racquet is 90 degrees off, and it does not work as expected when hitting the ball. The best way to test this is in the practice court (during the early matches in championship). I manage to drill some hole in it, and insert the move control in the correct position, but this is annoying. On the other hand, the tennis racquet in the PlayStation Move 14 in 1 Pack, which I also have, has the correct orientation, although the quality is much lower.

I got this racquet for a more realistic game experience. Within 1 week, it snapped and broke just from the force of serving!! Waste of my hard earned money!

I did hit the overhead fan a few times which cracked the racket. It flew apart on a backhand shot and took out one of my wife's plants across the room. Worked great before that.

Very user friendly because I was able to control and not just swing in random directions. Serving was a lot easier and more accurate.
