Length of Handle of PSC 6.1 Stretch

Discussion in 'Racquets' started by screw consistency, Jan 27, 2006.

  1. Could someone please tell me what the length -from the butt to the bottom of the V at the throat- is?

    Basically, I need to know if the extended length is just in the handle or if the entire frame is stretched. Any help will be appreciated:) Thanks!

  2. Anyone? I was thinking of getting one and taking the extra inch off.

    Hear me out: A PSC 6.1 with an 18x20 string pattern, 66 flex rating, 0.3-0.5 oz lighter, and more customizable.

    Is it feasible? I'm currently without a racket now:(

    Yeah, the 18 x 20 string pattern is definitely the way to go on the PSC Classic!

    Entire frame cannot be stretched; extended length racquets with a standard length counterpart are always stretched in the handle, since there is nowhere else to put the length (or else you would have a different racquet). The 28" PSC 6.1 is no different, go ahead and cut it (but find somebody professional to do it for you).

    there are some frames where the extended portion of the racquet is not in the handle. an example is the tt warrior os where i've believe the extended .5" is in the head or throat.

    After 4 funny years of searching, today I came back to play with my old PS Classic 6.1, because I didn't find anyone better. I was in the court like a kid with a new toy. I remember that in the past, I took the extra inch off from a 6.1 stretch. It didn't work.

    A professional inch cutter?

    How 'professional' does one need to be to take a saw and cut an inch off of something so small?

    Mark it, brace it, cut it.

    The handle is standard Pro Staff length (which is long in and of itself0. It's stretched at the throat where the V meets the the grip. I have one at home that I hit with on occassion, most especially on windy days.
