    What are some good extended length racquets excluding the POB LB? I prefer 27.5 inches. I wanted to try the i.prestige xl but can't find them anywhere.

    I tried and did not like the MG prestige MP XL - racquet did not feel right, like a MP with a longer handle. It felt wierd.

    I really liked a K95 X. The thing is a club, but really rips shots.

    I also enjoyed playing with a Aeropro plus for a while.

    I agree with RQIS tour-2. but the K-tour extended has swingweight in the area of 348 which is very high. Does anyone know if the grip of RQIS tour-2 comes apart like the pallets do.??

    The KTour does NOT have a SW of 348.

    I am going to send my RQIS tour 2 to New York to have my grip built up for $120.

    I will try the rqis2. has anyone tried the RQ7? or the tfight 320 xl? I would like the try the 325 but can't really find them.
    I used to own the instinct tour xl. i liked the weight and i thought it was nice but it just didn't feel right.

    the instinct tour xl had about the same swingweight according to TW and i found that weight to be really good.

    Has anyone tried the fxp prestige xl? TW and tennis. com both gave it negative reviews but they gave the i.prestige xl good reviews
