I just received the Pacific 90. Wow.................LIKE A BOARD OR A BRICK. This thing is strung SO tight that after about 15 groundies, I simply put it away.

Kind of a wasted demo. Mid-tension, it might be a nice frame, too, but like this, it's simply unplayable.

Just some thoughts.......

Just some thoughts....... Doesn't TW automatically string to the middle of the recommended tension range???

All our demos are strung at mid+2 unless they are strung with polyester. In that case, we string those at mid.

Likely they, as they stated, strung it around mid-tension.
HOWEVER, in this racquet, it doesn't start to sing until you get to LOOOOWWWW tensions. As in 40 for poly, or 45-50 for synthetic.

When I send this frame in, please check. I sincerely doubt it is "mid+2". My little string-twist gauge is maxing, and the 'ping' off this thing sounds 5-10#'s higher than the other demos.

It's a multi', by the way.

What did you expect from a 90 sq inch racquet with 20 crosses?
