So when are the Fischer racquets going to be available on the TW site? I notice the site is there for them but no racquets show yet. Will you be putting back up the link to the Pro No. 1 review?

Maybe one of us baked too long in the sun today, but do you see the word "Fischer" under tennis racquets at that link?

Did you miss the part of the link that says FISCHER RACQUETS?

Ok, since nobody even answered the original question...

TW used to sell Fischer racquets, but they dropped the line due to conflicts with Fischer's sales policy. It's a shame they dropped a good line, but I agree with their stance. Fischer's loss. That blank page is probably just a remnant from when they used to sell the Fischers...Or they've worked something out

Well, Fischer/Gamma have "adjusted" their policy to include online sales of Fischer racquets. So, we'll give it another go. We should probably have inventory sometime next week, and possibly postings up sooner. Thanks, Don/Tennis Warehouse

Fischerphiles unite! The recent interest in Fischer racquets on this board can finally materialize for Don and the boys.

Wouldn't postings be a nice weekend present?

"16" hasn't noticed any players on the pro circuits using 98 inch frames...he apparently has issues concerning size.

i just want to no if fischer makes any players frames in a 95 or less head size and with a bit more weight to them

how can the pro one be considered a player's racquet when it goes up to 25mm beam. Can you hit a decent slice with such a thick piece of graphite?

It is funny that you mention the slice, imho the pro #1 excells at slice backhands & I don't know why it just does! It is definately a players racquet, 12 + oz, control oriented, standard length, soft flex,unbelievable feel & touch, what more do you need?

@wright

What more do I need? A normal beam width, 25 is downright puredrivish. THat causes mishits when the hoop is that thick(I'm assuming part of the hoop reaches 25mm, am I right?).

@wright,
you should keep an open mind & hit with this racquet ( pretend that it is a 19mm thin beam), I am not saying that you will switch to it, but I think you will agree that this is one of the most comfortable controllable racquets that are made. It is absolutely deadly from the baseline, Serves big (flat & kick), and is above average everywhere else. With the loyal following that this racquet has I'm sure that you have heard this sort of thing about the PN1 before. If you do hit with it would love your review

Good enough. The specs sound nice to me(other than the 25mm). I also like that it has fiberglass like my pbp's. If I was in the market for a new stick I'd consider giving it a hit. The pro extreme ft doesn't sound bad either(20mm straight beam). The fischer that I really want to try is the vacuum classic pro 90 that stich used to use.
