View Full Version : so i got my hands on a hybrid tour

09-29-2006, 10:40 PM
So, i get to be the first one at my work place to demo the just arrived hybrid tours

Here is what the throat info is:

Head Size: 95"
String Tension:56+/-5 pounds
String Pattern 16x18
Power Level: 775
Swing Weight: 300
Length 27"
Unstrung Weight: 325 grams, 11.5 ounces
Unstrung balance, 12.2 inches

From a visual standpoint:
"The thing looks like a snowshoe" -My boss ahha

it dosent look like a prince racquet, i often find prince racquets looking like they are more circle like than longer, the hybrid tour is definitely oval shaped, in fact, the head looks really long, and it really dosent look like a 95 at all.

I havent played with it yet though, i will check back once i do that.

will do a direct comparison between:
6.1 16x18
prestige midplus
yonex rds 001 midplus
and my roddick+

I thought it was just TW pic that made it look funny headshape. Looks like I'm not the only one.

Yea, I thought the TW pick was just a bit stretched or something. So the headshape is just like the picture? When you do get a chance to play with it I want to hear about the sweetspot. I wonder if the headshape changes it's location or something like that. Congrats on getting your hands on one.

headshape is just like the picture, i compared it to a mfil 200, and the heads are almost similar.

I notice a higher sweetspot on the serve.

that's good i love high sweetspots on racquets.

TW stats show 337 for the swingweight.

Interesting. I just checked the Prince web site, and it states 300 as the swingweight.

Anybody know which is correct? I would assume Prince, but ...

10-01-2006, 04:34 PM
