    Anyone know where these are made? I'm guessing China just like every other manufacturer besides Yonex. Just found out about the Pro 90 Vacuum, that was a racket and a half back in the day. Can't believe they brought it back again.

    China. And yes...the racquet was great...I have one of the original Fischers. Tough to consistently hit on clay though...but the greatest, sweetest feel I've ever experienced in a tennis racquet.

    I don't know where mine was made, but I like my PAC 98 x pro. I also like my FSCH m speed pro too.

    0d1n,

    I'm curious... what strings and tensions have you liked in your Fischer Vac 90/Mid? And did you string the mains and crosses at the same tension or different?

    Thanks.

    It played great with anything (never put poly in there though...it just seemed..."wrong"). I currently have some Wilson Synthetic gut extreme (I think that's the name) in there.
    I strung the crosses lower, and generally kept tension pretty low...it also has a very narrow recommended tension range.

    Edit. To get more specific I've strung it with various synthetics and somewhere in between 21-23 kg's ...usually with the crosses strung 1 kilo lower. NOT what you would call a "modern racquet" but still great ;).

    Many thanks. Yeah, poly would seem "wrong" in this frame to me, too.

    I just dug up an old e-mail from a Fischer design engineer. He said they recommend the crosses be strung 1kg lower than the mains.

    Volkl and Pacific racquets are both made in China but each company has a strict quality control. I just bought a second volkl after a few months of my first purchase of the same racquet. Two different stores, 0.02 oz difference :) Totally negligible

    Why would using a poly on a fischer be wrong Keifer?
