Head's 98 size is smaller than other makes - complicates things.

So is Dunlop 98 head size!

How does this poll actually work? Do you just vote for the option that you think is most popular???

I don't think this poll can honestly be done unless you allow wpeople to vote multiple times about all the pro's they know...

hmmm well if a pro uses a head 98 which in most cases is more like a 96-97sq then on the poll go for the 98 not other. also theres no point doing multiple ones, just vote for the one you think most pros out of the top 100 use.

Thanks. that shows me that 18x20 is the most used in top 40. but what about head size? i guess it's between 95and 98 and it's personal preference on string pattern.

that's why i put 'other' but most pros don't use 100sq in.

So is Dunlop 98 head size!

Looks like either the designers don't know autoCAD very well, or the factor screwed up. I'm going for the former.
