    TW,
    Is there any chance you will get the 28 inch version instead of or in addition to the modified 27.5.
    Thanks

    Yeah I want a 28 inch version,

    I wanted the Original one but if there is more demand for the 27.5 then TW have to do it.

    But if there is any chance of a 28 I will be most grateful!!

    Yes there is a very good chance we will be getting the 28" version in. I only see an allocation for the 27.5" version listed in our system right now, but I think that might be incorrect.

    We may only be getting 28" racquets.

    If this sounds confusing, well it got me!

    I will have to check with Don, as he is the one who has been putting this all together. I will check with Don on Monday and post an answer.

    Sorry for any confusion caused here.

    Chris, TW.

    I could be wrong, but I believe the specs listed here are for the racquet unstrung. I say this because when TW was trying to get these last year, the stated specs for their strung sample(s) were 11.5-11.6 oz., 8-9 pts. head light, flex of 65-66, swingweight around 335.

    Yep they are for unstrung, I don't think 10.9 strung would be right!! lol

    And I just noticed it says that the specs are for unstrung.

    T-bolt,

    Thanks alot for letting me hit with your collection yesterday. Your modifieds really impressed me. I felt sorry for Lazlo and his Pure Drive chasing down the heavy shots comming from the longbodies.

    I'd like to hit with you next chance you get. My email is ematuszewski@hotmail.com. Anytime of day I've got lots of free time to hit for the next two weeks.

    Thanks again

    We are looking at an ETA of 11/11. The only specs we have are listed above and supplied by Prince. We will have updated specs when we get stock.

    Thanks Chris. How much weight would the strings add to it and how many points head light is 12.4?

    thanks again.

    Is "standard carbon" the same as 100% graphite as what the standard POG mid plus and OS are made of?

    Yeah, what's up with that? Awfully light for a bonafide player's racquet. Are you sure those are the right specs strung?

    Just throw a bunch of weight on it. But I've never hit with a 28" racquet, and it must have a higher swingweight, so it'll feel heavier than 11.3 or whatever strung it will be.

    That price was probably posted by someone other than TW with no merit or credibility. I would go with information posted by TW, such as Don or Chris.

    All longbodies have really high swingweights, the 10.9 unstrung sounds about perfect.

    Also the 10.9 allows you to customise it easier.

    How is this racquet? I hear about it being a really good racquet..but in what ways is it good? Control, feel, comfort?

    I have only ever hit with it twice and that was only for 2 hours a time, in that time I found them to have more power than a regular POG but the extra length took a while to get timing correct at first.

    Control was slightly dodgy but I found the feel to be very good like a regular POG and I didn't really notice any pain so I would say the comfort was good.

    I can't really give a full review, but I am looking forward to giving them a proper test.

    If you had to guess how much it felt like it weighted how much would you say?

    I would say that it felt about 12.8ozs but that was mainly thanks to the head light balance.

    It will take some getting used to, but you will be fine i'm sure.

    It did have some tape on it, but the swing weight felt extremely high, as I said you will have to get used to it.
