    I don't have any of those types of matches since I am not playing USTA this spring. But I can tell you that for now I'll open with the TC95 and hopefully close with it as well. It is the middle ground between the Extreme Pro and the Tec. For now I will play my matches with the TC95 as it is the only way to learn the frame and see how I do under pressure. Only time will tell. But I would really like to have a soft, flexy frame with a thin beam as my main stick. It just is the most enjoyable way to play tennis for me.

    Playing with my VCT89 alongside; just really really like it, I'm more and more enticed by Yonex.

    Been playing with some customized Vcore Xi98s recently, which is a racquet that I know got a lot of talk on this thread a few years ago... Pretty unreal frames and the price was indeed right. I got them matched up perfectly, added Finest Calfskin grips.

    Unstrung specs: 330 g, 291 kg/cm2, 30.5cm

    Anyone tried using gut/poly in these frames? I was using Tonic Ball Feel and various poly crosses for the past summer, and went to full poly so far in the YYs because of how much extra power I've been getting out of them... After I break these string jobs (very soon it looks like from the condition of them), I'm going to try a gut poly setup again at much higher tension. Probably 26kg/24kg
