    Are you serious? I hope you mean something more along the lines of why not use the entire animal rather than throwing away the parts we don't eat? It's much more useful than a leather jacket, for example.

    Tennis Man, you got me thinking about my favourite...

    My PC had a Wilson, and I love the feel of my friends n90 leather, so I'd say Wilson is my favourite.

    Followed closely by the POG's Prince Calfskin.

    Shamefully, my RDX/PS 85 leathers' Head Calfskin are my least favourite, especially before a good wear in. Horrible feel IMO.

    Oh of course I am, just what to say really? I've been giving some love to the Blue/Red Ti-80. Strung it up today and gonna hit some more with it tomorrow. I think it deserves a "jdeloach" review. I know you did the Orange version but the cosmetics makes this one play better :D

    I have one Q though, in the review you said something about the low SW+high static weight combo being good for heavy groundstrokes. I found my groundies to be very deep, but not too heavy with this racquet today. I'm thinking of tweaking it a bit, anything you did to yours such as a bit at 12?

    Before I got rid of it, I put a little lead at 10 & 2. It really improved the groundstrokes. I imagine a tad at 12 would be nice as well, especially on serves.
    By the way, that is a very nice looking racquet. The orange version.....not so much!

    Yeah my MP Tour 1 Mid isn't easy on the eyes, especially with a fluoro yellow OG :p. The serves were soooo good with the Ti-80 though, lead would make it that bit even better too.

    anyone know how do prince leather grip compares with the other grips in terms of thickness? I'm thinking of getting gamma replacement leather and i like the grip size my prince leather on POG provides.

    Holy crap did you do that yourself or did you have it done professionally by someone else? It looks fantastic.
