    Just curious. I don't care about specific people, but I was just curious what you experts thought the percentage of pro's that use mid versus midplus.
    Just for clarification I consider mid is less than 95 and midplus is 95+
    Thanks.

    I'd say probably 80% to 20%. But that's just a guess.

    i'm guessing 82,83% of pro's on the mens tour use midplus, i can only think of a few who use mids: federer, hewitt, safin, monfils...and i'm sure there's others, but theyre not coming to me.

    I would say 85 percent with a midplus, 10 percent mid, and 5 percent OS

    when did the tennis world become dominated (quantitatively, not qualitatively) by midplus and NOT MS/OS

    When manufacturers started making dozens and dozens of midplus models.

    Prince used to release all their frames only in mid and oversize (90 and 110). Midplus was generally limited to 95 sq inches (it's weird how I consider my 93 sq inch Diablo "mid" a midsized racquet and my 95 sq inch Dunlop HM 200g a midplus)

    There has been an ongoing tidal wave of 98 and 100 sq inch Midplus racquets flooding the market, as well as a decreased number of true mids and players' oversize. So, players naturally ended up with midplus frames.
