Just a little haha. Yeah but I really didnt buy all this because rafa uses it(although he is my favorite player). I bought the shoes back in may and bought the bag a week before I got the racquets. Its awesome how it worked out ha.

Im thinking about trying polyfibre TCS, maybe? But yeah I agree I have the xcel full in one, and pro hurricane tour/xcel in the other bot at 58. The PHT looks sweet in this racquet but I want to try it as a full setup, ill just have to wait till I pop a string.

Vamos!!!!! Cant wait for rafa to take No. 1 finally.(August 18th according to SI)
Maybe later today I will post my apdcs, they are strung with full big ace yellow.
Hope you do, i want to see what big ace yellow looks like on APDCs. How long you been playing with the APDC?
im jealous. seriously.
Thanks ha, but dont be just save up for awhile and it all pays off. Now I get to sit back and play the best tennis I can cause I know I have the best racquet for me.

it is the 12 pack sorry i didnt clarify. It looks smaller because I had just gotten it and it was stuffed in a box ha. And yeah I was really surprised how good touch is with this racquet, it seems like the cortex improved that a little for me, plus I went to the standard length from my original APD+.

Well done - all the more satisfying unwrapping them. I have the same bag and 5 APDC+'s. You can't be half-hearted on the volleys with them.

Nice I like the yellow of course in the APDC. What kind of dampener is that on tour second pic and first pic? Did you buy your bag before you got and APDC? Or did you just like the wilson bag better?

It really does but it makes me scared to "break" em in so to speak. I've hit with both of em but Im alot more careful about where I lay bag or put down my racquet its kinda frustrating ha.

The dampener is some luxlion damp I found...best one ive used, too bad I cant find any more. I did buy my bag before I got the apdcs. I got it when I still had my PDS.

I like the Babolat Custom Damps(which I just got in) but rubber bands are good with ANY racquet. I think all other dmapeners are only good with some racquets. I hate the shockbuster on my APD but I love it on my prince O3 Tour.:?
Also: why dosen't Tennis Warehouse sell Pro Supex? I cant find it?

I have some customs damps I might try again. I used to use a westren grip and I had them fly off alot, recently switched to a semi and havent tried them yet. I dont know why they dont sell them but try s t r i n g s d e p o t p l u s. Also how do you like the aero bag? I was thinking of getting an aero backpack for when I go on vacation.

Really nice set up!

Did you go one size down on the grip size, because the babolat grip size seem to be a touch big?

So far I do like my Aero bag. It is not as roomy as I expected so definately get the 12pack if it is going to be your main bag. It holds three racquets each on the side compartmenets but barely and without racquet covers. You can hardly fit two racquets in one of em with covers. Overall its very sturdy but a little bulky feeling, although it dosent bother me at all really. It definately CANNOT hold four racquets in each side compartment, but i could with my prince bag. But this dosent bother me too much either as I only carry, at the most, five racquets.
Also, is the Pro Supex a poly?or co-poly?

Actually, no my old APD+ was 3/8 so I just stuck with that one but if anything I would have gone down one as I really dont care for the 1/2.

Thanks:
2X APDC= 390 roughly w/ tax(bought from a local dealer not TW)
Aero 12 Bag= 70
=roughly $460 + another 30 bucks for dampeners, socks, etc that I bought with my bag so total around $500(i know it is alot know that I see it) around 460 for bag and racquets though

What is your grip size for other brand of raquets? I am not sure whether I wanna get smaller grip a la nadal style.

What is your forehand grip btw?

What is your forehand grip btw?My old prices are 1/2 but I hate that size in general. I never get a size bigger than 3/8 now, i want to try out 1/4.
My forehand grips is weird ha: its what federer does, I put the index of my pointer finger on the bevel between eastern and semi-western(the article is on tennis.com somewhere:-?). But I occasionaly go to a semi- western for high-bouncing balls or lobs.



congrat on your new set up! How did you like ur new apdc? What is your rating btw?
Im lovin it! of course!haha Im soooo glad I bought these two instead of two aero storm tours. My rating is 3.5 at best probably. Im not officially rated but thats an honest opinion 3.2-3.3 would be my exact rating ha.

Just curious. Do you prefer the Cortex or Non-Cortex version, and what do you think the differences are between the frames?

I actually prefer the cortex, slightly though. I really like the crisp feeling of cortex. I am one of those players that dosent want a whole lot of feedback or feel from my racquet just good pop. But I still love my old APD I just wish it wasnt the + version and it would be perfect.
