I've been using the POG MP and I just need a larger headsize I'm still a junior and am not hitting the sweetspot consistently enough. I am going to consider some 95-98 head size frames.

this is a list off frames i've tried http://tt.tennis-warehouse.com/showthread.php?t=111267

try the dunlop 200 and 300 series...........mfil, aerogel, or even the g's

also look at some of the older racquets, you might stumble upon something quite amazing.


good luck to you.

The 95-98 headsize is slightly bigger than that of the POG mid. It is hardly noticeable when comparing to a 95.

Agree. It might just be better to persist with the POG and make small corrections to technique.

POG = Prince Original Graphite. One of the finest racquets ever made.

the oversized POG. I've known & seen a lot of great players use it from the number 1 in Northern Nevada to the Pros. Prince has the market on great rackets thet just make the current offerings too light a decent racket should weigh at least 12.4 oz. and if its to heavy your looking for short cuts that are not there.

im kind of thinking trying the Volkl C10 Pro, Volkl DNX 10 mp, Dunlop Aerogel/M-fil 200(is there a large enough difference to make me want to pay $90 more?)

Sounds like you want a 98 with a large sweetspot. Yonex range with the Isometric head sounds like it's in order :)

soz for the double post but if u look on the japanese K-Factor site there is a Wilson (K)six-one 105 which obviously has a 105 inch head,

yea, if your used to heavy racquets, i'd try out the Yonex RDS 001 MP (or the mid i've heard it plays bigger than it is), Wilson K-factor 95, Volkl DNX 10 MP, Dunlop M-fil or Aerogel 200 and lastly the Prince 03 tour MP (although this may have too much power).

k/n six-one 95 or nblade 98.
but i'd rather go for more practice, thus you'd more often hit the sweetspot. if i'm not wrong, the pog is rather "heavy" by todays standards and one reason for not finding the sweetspot too often is that you'd be late on the strokes.

ive played with all of the K 6.1's and the 95 16x18, 18x20 they were really stiff and i havent played the k90 but i dont want to go in that direction i liked it but shanked many balls.

i really loved that sweet feel in the RDX 500 mp. the rds 001 was good but didnt have that feel

if the 6.1 95s felt stiff (which could also be because of the strings you might have used), what didn't you like about the nblade 98. that's a really flexy stick with good power and control - i play the 106 by the way.

p.s.
i assume that the pure drive in your signature is not for regular playing purposes, because that really is a stiff racquet.

Stick with the POG! That stick is a monster!

the nBlade felt "dead" when I played it the k 6.1 and the nblade were strung with sensation 16g

i used it before i found the joy of a less stiff racquet

I also think the K95 is kind of stiff too, compared to Ncode 95 and 6.0 95

I can't agree with you about the nBlade - it's one of the best feeling racquets I've ever played with. Anyway, Sensation is typically not a very nice string, so try it with a different one.

megaforcetkd,
you have to see these things relative - itwasin!!! was playing with a pure drive and plays a pog which has 16mains if i'm not wrong. compared to these racquets, the nblade feels really "dead" in the sense that you don't get more output than your input, even with a softer multi like the sensation - you get what you hit. the bab or the pog are to some extent (the bab to a much larger than the pog) amplification devices - i hope i was able to explain well and understandable/comprehendable.

it's a long time since i played the pog (better said it was a clone or pj - and it was a os anyway), but yes, i agree with many of the posters, these sticks are good even by todays standards. therefore i would suggest you rather try to get more practice and stay with thoses sticks.

to bad vantage doesn't let you pick your head shape as well as size or i'd already have many of those with the yonex head.....
