    Thanks for the tips and the hospitality. Just got my first stringing machine (Klippermate) and started practising on a training racquet w/the sample strings. I can see that I will be breaking lots of strings and the machine will prob pay for itself w/in a few months along w/added convenience.

    Bought some Weiscannon Scorpion at both 1.22 and 1.28 and will prob try the 1.28 first for the extra durability since the last alu job didn't last very long. Read a lot of good reviews for the string and hope it feels better than the alu. Otherwise I'll keep experimenting since I have the stringer now and I know I like the frame due to how it played on demo. Just a matter of time to find the right combo.

    Someone from the Cheers production team is in. I just saw a 1989 episode called "Please Mr. Postman", in which Sam is trying to keep up with a young, athletic woman who comes into the bar carrying a Graphite OS 1-stripe. Beisdes being the older model (Prince had introduced the 4-stripe by then), it had a Donnay butt cap and stencil–presumably meaning they weren't able to get any money out of Prince for showing the racquet on the episode.

    POG Mid (4 Stripe Version) - owned it since 1991.
    Normally using PSGD 16/17 at 55-60Lbs.
    Thinking of putting full poly (Adrenaline) in at 48 lbs... ...TBD.

    Hey POG lovers,

    Which of the leather replacement grips available through TW (Dunlop, Gamma, Babolat, Head, Wilson, TW, Volkl, Pacific, Becker) is most like the one that comes stock on the current Tour version of the POG? Thanks.

    Don't know but the TW grip is my choice. Long lasting and feels great.

    Started with the OS tours, got the longbody, went to the exo3 graphites which are slightly different, now using a 4stripe mid with ProLine2 and gosen around 53lbs and some added lead at 10/2 and the handle. just a few inches to make it a little more polarized

    2 exo3 graphite 93
    1 exo3 graphite 100
    2 POG OS tour (cracked one slightly, I got very angry)
    1 POG longbody (wish I had more)
    1 POG mid 4-striper
    1 POG OS 2nd generation single stripe (super flexy it seems)

    really only play with the 4stripe as of right now.
    3/8 with 3 overgrips for that inbetween 4/8-5/8.
    roughly 4" of lead in the hoop, 2" each at 10 and 2, and another 4" in the handle for a little added weight and polarization.
    currently strung with gosen 17-white and proline II 17-black @ 53/51.

    Very clean, especially given the price. Nice pull!

    Count me in.

    Saw the light after playing a LOT of different sticks including a TW Re-issue POG6 Mid. Didn't really care for the POG6 OS but need to spend more time with it. Recently bought a used POG4 Mid in good condition. That one is now my main stick with the POG6 Mid as backup. The POG4 is lighter than the POG6, more head heavy and plays heavier which I prefer. My actual strung measurements after adding an overgrip and rubber band dampener to each:

    POG4 Mid (4 stripe)
    Weight: 12.3 (4 HL)

    POG6 Mid (Tour - TW Re-issue)
    Weight: 12.5 (11 HL)

    POG6 OS (Tour - TW Re-issue)
    Weight: 12.6 (7 HL)

    Don't have any other OS to compare it to. Might start playing around with leading up the POG6 Mid to see how customizing it compares to the POG4 Mid.

    Ok, I'm in but I use the Chang oversize 28''. I was idiot and thought the exo graphite would be close to my POG. Dead wrong. I use syn gut/poly and it fits me perfect at 57lbs. The POGs are the best tool to do the job against any type of player..

    1x Boron, absolute cannon,
    2x M 4 stripe, which I like less then OS,
    2x OS 1 stripe I recently gave away to my nephew...
    I guess, I'm a member too.

    Hey guys. Count me in. I have two tour model POG mids. I was wondering what you are string with, given the really open string pattern.

    Cheers

    I am posting in anticipation of my return. I have a reel of SPPP, and I will start with that. I have a baseline game, and require low tensions and spin to control the ball, as I rarely hit flat. Please let me know what polys you have tried to help me in my quest for Das Ãœberracquet!

    EDIT: This was my first players stick, and I was not good enough to use it. I am now beginning to appreciate it. What a racquet!

    the "auction site" struck again - so in the mail are 4 one stripe POG mids, 2 1st series POG OS and a 2nd or 3rd series Boron.

    I think I'm done for a while....

    I played the POG OS for 3 yrs and switched to the mid last year and have loved the mid ever since.

    I've heard a lot of positive posts about the Volkl c10 pro recently, so I couldn't resist the urge and purchased 2 c10 pros (2010 version). After, hitting with the c10 pro for a couple of hours of doubles, my initial impression is that my POG mids (TW reissue) feel and play a lot better than the c10 pro.

    The c10 pros felt nice and hefty, and flexible. Coming from a POG mid, I still like the feel, control, and manueverability of the POG mid. Surprisingly the c10 pros swing weight (325) felt noticeably heavier than my POG Mid (TW reissue 328)? Their static weight are similar, both 343 grams (TW), I believe.

    I suppose it will take some time getting use to (c10 pro), along with experimenting w/diff string set-ups. One thing I just couldn't understand was, i felt like I was consistently missing the sweet spot on the c10 pro (98 sq in) vs. the POG mid (93 sq in) i'm hitting the sweet spot effortlessly.

    I'm using a tour oversize right now strung with tecnifibre black code at 60. I'm having trouble generating power especially on my serve. Any stringing recommendations? With such a large string bed, I'm afraid to go much lower regarding tension
