I decided to reorganize my log, and moving it to a new thread is the first step of that. The latest additions were the Slazenger Black Panther, the Fischer Pro Classic 90 and the Donnay Pro Cynetic 12 Mid.

Thanks for the list.

I am surprised that flex rating of the Spectrum Comp is that high since it feels pretty flexible or comfortable to me.

Thanks for the list. I am surprised that flex rating of the Spectrum Comp is that high since it feels pretty flexible or comfortable to me.

It does feel pretty comfortable, which indicates that there's more to a racquet's feel than the RDC numbers might suggest... It has been noted before that the RDC machine only measures flex at one point, which may account for some differences between numbers and feel. At least that's the way I understand it.

Once you get them all, are you going to start traveling to log more :) Guess some of us could send you more to catalog.

BTW, Id love to see a few woody entries to add some more interesting perspective to the data. Do you have any wood rackets ?

Always wondered how you measure the flex and the swingweight. Do you have some sort of special machine at home?

And can you put photos up here, to show it in action please?

I'd cetainly like to see how this is done:)

Apart from the Estusa I haven't played with any of the racquets I just measured. I'm especially eager to try out the F295, since I've had a NOS one for ages that I never dared to string up...

Ciao Dino,

i discovered that my Rossi F 395 it's basically the same frame as the 295, it is the heavier version.same flex, same head shape( i think that the headsize was a 87 sq.in.), and same paint job.Actually, my F 395 weights 372 grams, balance 32,4 cm,flex 56, swingweight 363.

The F395 is the larger head size version of the F295. Back in those days Rossignol offered the racquets in different weights. I had a F295 that was that was labled L and weighed 370g strung and one that was a SL that was much lighter. Unfortunately I don't have them anymore.

Oh, if you could get your hands on a Wilson Ultra II that would be great.

I have a couple of old issues of World Tennis magazine from 1985 and they rated the stiffness of frames in their reviews on a scale from 1 to 10.

The Wilson Ultra II was rated a 9, the Wilson Sting and the Dunlop Max 200g were both rated at 7. Mind you, this was pre-widebody perspective!

Hey Dino... I have a favor to ask if you have a chance.

We're having a debate in the stringing machine forum here at TT concerning swingweight. Others have reported that any weight added to a frame, below the pivot point will result in a decrease in SW... which is physically impossible. I'd like to verify it one more time on a different machine to determine if this is an idiosyncrasy of the RDC machine.

My question is this: The next time you have a racquet on the RDC machine, after determining the swingweight, would you attach/add an additional 10-20 grams of weight as close to the butt cap as you can and then re-run the swingweight test? The weight can be taped to the end or added inside the buttcap.

If you can do this,

I'd like to know the following:
Racquet model
Length
Weight
Balance
Swingweight (stock)
Swingweight (with added weight)
Amount of extra weight added to the buttcap
Approximate distance weight is added from the pivot point of the RDC machine (should be 8-9 cm, I believe)Thanks!

Thanks, I feel what makes TT worthwile are the contributions the members make, and this is mine... I haven't really gone after Wilsons in general when I've looked for racquets, but if I ever get my hands on an Ultra II I'll be sure to let you know the specs.

Snauwaert pictures will come later.

About the Donnay Diamant, the Roman numerals I and II simply denote racquet 1 and 2, not different models. Sorry for the confusion, I'll change to a different system in the log later. There were two models though, a wooden one that I believe Virginia has posted about and the graphite one proracketeer has posted in the Donnay Code Book thread:

Dino,
Thanks for all the valuable info you provide, its a great resource for those of us that enjoy classic sticks.

PS; I have a nearly pristine blue F200, which I love and sadly a cracked grey one (with the rooster). What would you recommend as the next "must have" Rossi frame? Like you I seem to have developed a fondness for Rossignols.

Dino Lagaffe
01-03-2012, 11:24 AM
Hi TCTEN! I'm glad you enjoy the log. It's something I really wish had been available when I started getting old racquets, and something I really enjoy doing now.

As far as Rossignols go, I really want to mention the FGC. That one is probably my favorite Rossi of all time, being even flexier than my F200s... It might be a little hard to come by, though. Another one, that is more common, is the F250. It may not have that total F200 feel to it, but more of a "modern" touch due to the 60 flex. Great compromise of old school looks and feel and modern playability though, if you ask me.

You can't go wrong with a classic Rossignol, so I wouldn't only look for a certain model, but rather focus on getting one in as good a condition as possible. (Although the F-series would be a logical group of racquets to focus on.) Keep us updated!

The red F200 is in a very good used condition. I assume it was that flexible when new.
The F200 must have been made with a very high percentage of fiberglass. I really like racquets with fiberglass, which gives a nice flex and cushioning to racquets. I have never played with the F200, but the Adidas GTX Pro-T Ivan Lendl was a great frame from the same era.

Many Völkls, including the C7 pro (I believe) had some fiberglass in the early-to-mid 1990s. I moved away from fiberglass to the Fischer Pro Classic 98 and the VT Pro 98 , and varying Fischer new generations of the VT Pro 98. I have a large stash of old Fischer racquets in varying condition. I have yet to find a current racquet that I like as much as my Fischers.

I didn't expect it to be that stiff, but I've measured a couple of racquets and multiple readings, and those are the numbers I got. Not sure if the longbody is flexier than or not.

Hi, DonDiego! After having bought, played with and measured hundreds of racquets, all I can say is that sometimes I still get surprised with the difference in numbers between the same model of racquets... Not sure what's up in this particular case.

Three things really stood out in this measuring session:

1) The stiffness of the Adidas GTX Mid (71)
2) The stiffness of the Prince Thunderstick 90, where I couldn't even get a result...
3) The crazy specs of the Wilson Ultra Hammer 5.0. I have never before seen such HH balance.

I can clearly remember, when that racquet was new, World Tennis (USA) magazine tested it and found that it was the stiffest racquet they'd ever measured. Then, a couple years later, Wilson introduced the Kuebler Resonanz / Profile and the widebody era with a whole new level of stiffness began... :neutral:

Yeah, I knew it was on the stiff side, but thought it would be a couple of points south of 70.
