We all know that the AeroPro Drive is the most popular stick in the world, but what are the favorites here on talk tennis?

I've been liking both the Ezone Xi 100 and Vcore 100S lately.

Donnay Formula seems to be popular around here.

LM Prestige, Radical, and Instinct deserves honorable mention in the least.

Prestige is a tweener?

Nope. And IMHO, neither is a Radical.

Pro Open, Pure Drive '12, APD, Extreme Pro 2.0, Wilson Juice, Yonex 100

Pick one and enjoy. They all play fairly similar. Pick the one that gives you the most control, head speed and comfort.

Pro Open 2012 without hesitation !
Presently, the only tweener I have tested with a so nice blend of control, power and spin :)
The others are often too powerful for me...

I count the liquid metal line as tweeners. Big head, lightweight, and too much power lol.

liquid metal line- 4, 8, prestige, instinct, radical, etc.

Recently transitioned from the APD Original to the Juice 100. Great frame for me.

Prestige is a tweener?

No. Even the Radical is a tweener only because it is lightweight. It also is more properly labelled a players' racquet.

Shark 03 hybrid, hybrid hornet. The prince MP's are some of my favorite sticks today. I actually don't have a reason not to play with them. They're so good, i have a double negative in my last sentence!

I just picked up an O3 Shark Hybrid for Club mix-ins/socials. Surprisingly solid on impact, feels very nice. Actually prefer it to my Head Extreme Pro 2.0 for casual play. Never used it in a match but might do.

The Radical MPs are not tweeners. Light players frames. Some of older Rads came in about 12 oz

I stand corrected. probably couldn't get a solid read on em since i only played with a few of em when i first started playing. When tennis was fun and gear didnt matter lol.

no way Extreme Pro is a tweener. It's 12 oz and high swingweight.

some great tweeners IMO:

Juice 100
V1 Classic
Biomimetic 6
PD12
Instinct (old and new)
Pro Open
Warrior
Becker DC Pro
Volkl PB7

people around here really stretch the "tweener" definition IMO.
to me the prototype "tweener" is the Volkl V1 Classic.

Völkl PB 8 315

Powerful and comfortable, nice feel and a lot of spin ( 16 x 18 )

Does the aero storm fall into this category? Why? Why not?

blx pro open

mike,

whats the current setup on your pro open?

Currently in limbo. I've tried a few setups and have liked all of them.

Tried rpm team/nvy @55, full TNT2 @58, and lightning xx 16 @60.
I added 6g of tape at 12 but didn't like it. Then 3g at 3 and 9 which inshould have stuck with and might go back to. Currently it's a bare frame. Also, it's a 3/8 with two pro overgrips.

I'm in the exact same state you are. Tried a couple and liked them all. So I decided to go on the budget setup since it didn't really matter. I still have a ways to go on my technique but I can tell what I enjoy hitting with and what I don't.

MSV focus 17 @ 55 and Gosen OG @ 57. $10

Ill probably experiment with some lead tape since my session yesterday made me feel that the racquet is a little underweight. I'll take your advice and go with the 3 and 9.

What about the extreme mp?

I have a i.extreme from around 2004 that still does a good job.

These days I play with a BLX pro open, but the i. extreme is still very competitive.
Only in the serve department it really falls short. Can't compare with newer extremes though.
