Does anybody own this racquet? Can you give me a quick review of how it hits, feel, and what not. I just ordered one off of a certain auction site; idk it was a spur of the moment thing....I already checked the specs on the old TW site.....

I played with one for a few years. Somewhat sorry I sold my stash. A summary of the frames +/-: Volleys great, serves well, volleys great, good slice backhand, volleys great, average on rest of groundstorke and did I mention that it volleys great.

Excellent control off the ground, approaching, serving and volleying. A little lacking in power for driving shots, but hits extremely penetrating slices. A dream at net.

Thats pretty much exactly what I'm looking for, slicing, volleying, and serving. Could you recomend a string type; I'm thinking of just putting PSGD @ 60lbs. Would that be a good choice?

That's exactly what I have in mine; PSD17 @ 58. Broke on me today after around 6 hours (and 5 years, my use of the PRTi has been sporadic at best :-p). I might go lower next time, the first time I strung it up at 63 and it felt boardy. But that's just my personal preference, I'm partial to low tensions.

Yeah, I use the 17 gauge as well. I'll probably go with PSGD with anywhere from 57-60lbs

I'm considering removing the synthetic grip (which is flaking off) and just replacing it with one or two overgrips, to tilt the balance towards the head a bit; as it is, I feel that it's a bit too HL.

I'll probably replace the grip with some prince leather that my country club has...damn Nick took the last wilson leather grip

Prince calfskin is so much better than Wilson leather, I'd jump on that.

I'd say Babolat is the best. The Prince Calfskin seemed to bleed a lot more than the Wilson, but I like the Prince color better, the wilson is to orange...

I used play with the Prince Response Ti and agree that is a great S&V and all-court stick. As for string, PSGD 17 worked well as did Prince Topspin Plus 16.

Does it actually have titanium in it, or is that a lie, like most triple threat/ racquet technologies.

I used PSG original 17. I think I was stringing them around 62. With lead tape at 3 and 9. I also replaced the grips with fairways. I think it did have some TI at 2 and 10. This frame was released shortly before they made a big push on triple threat tech.

I used this racquet for a couple of years and quite liked it. In fact, I still entertain the occasional thoughts of going back to it .... Anyway, it was great on volleys. I don't think I've liked any racquet better on that aspect of play. It plays a bit lighter than it's weight suggests, though. It's a solid player's racquet, though probably not ideal for a baseliner. It does feel a bit more muted than some other sticks. My stringing memories were pretty much a variation between topspin 16 and PSG 16 or 17. I thought it felt best around 60 lbs.

Well it came in today, and I played a little doubles match (in my jeans and vans slip ons). Served great, I could get some good kick serves(well, thats all I hit for serves). Groundstrokes felt solid with good access to spin with that 16x20 . Slice was low and skiddy. I didn't get to volley with though.....I'll provide a better review when I get to play more on Monday
