    Can you compare the 89 tour to the 95D and to the PS90?

    3 extremely different rackets in my opinion. The 95d I can huge spin with in particular on the serves, it is also possible to hit flat but I find that unless I go after the ball I hit long too regularly.
    The ps90 is a wonderful racket but you have to be on form or prepared to accept some errors. It is however the most wonderful racket to play with, nothing comes to close it in terms of feel.
    The vcore 89 tour is another great stick. Plenty of pop on it and perhaps a little too much for my liking for a mid-sized racket. This feels somewhere in between the two other rackets, it has plenty of pop but it is not as easy to generate the huge slice and kickers on serve as the 95d. All three rackets are wonderful to volley with. The 95D in particular surprised me with this.

    Sorry I don't have edit button, but Adidas shoes: Red/Black Barricade Team (1st edition) White Barricade 5? I think White/Black/Orange Barricade 7. 2 Babolat Aeropro Team. 1 Babolat Pure Drive. 1 Prince O3 Speed Port Red it says :confused: Babolat 12 pack, Dunlop 3 pack, and Wilson backpack. Wilson is my sister's old bag. Pure Drive and prince are also sister's old racquets, but she doesn't have time in college :cry:

    Its not a full sponsorship. Its just a player package package for eligible juniors, they only charge the wholesale price.

    It's $300 for 2 rackets and $400 for 3. You have to pay like $15 for shipping and can add $20 to upgrade to a team line bag from a club line bag. You get to chose from different string options too. You get 6 sets if you choose Hurricane, Hurricane Tour, RPM, Revenge, XCel, and a few more. 3 sets if you choose the hybrid of RPM and VS or PHT and VS. You can choose a Reel of N.Vy or Syn Gut also. You get a 3-pack of overgrips and stencil ink too. All in all, it's a pretty good deal. Oh, you get two cotton T-shirts and a hat too.

    For real, fedthechamp, you've posted three times on this page about it. Please stop. It takes away from the purpose of the thread, which is to post pictures of tennis rackets and gear, not to ask people to buy their stuff. Alternatively, look in the classifieds for the racket you are searching for. There are plenty of great sellers on TTW, and there are new racket listings every day, I'm sure you can find what you're looking for soon enough.

    I'm actually a college player, and the sponsorship is available to juniors with a certain ranking, I think top 10 in the section or something, and any college player. Your location says Estonia, so your best bet is to contact your local Babolat representative and ask for the sponsorship information.

    It was just a cool shot, not him being arrogant. What's your deal with supposing people are arrogant because of their gear? It's something you've done on this thread more than once.

    Now what racquet is that? Nice and clean, that would be great racquet if it plays as good as looks.

    I think I'll still end up getting a couple of the new Angell racquets! Couldn't resist a few in the rebrand sale though.

    It certainly does! Can do everything very well and is an absolute spin monster.

    I clearly need to do some stringing...

    Calm yourself. Just some minor trolling. I found humor in the post setting up a "reveal."

    wow I am jealous of that collection, honestly I thought i was overrating my bc20 and custom but then today I seriously demoed the six one 95 and team versions blx 2012version, I knew immediately just by holding it that the design was not great and it just felt off, I tried it anyway and it sucked so bad, I tried the pro staff 90 after that and it was amazing a truly godly racquet, as of now I think the GOAT raquets are the my two frames, and the pro staff, oh and of course the prestige mid

    i played tennis with my cousin while being in the alps for cycling/trekking, but we didn't have our tennis racquets with us... so this is what we were graciously given by the people of an hotel located close to the court (vintage racquets ?). ;)
    wasn't lendl playing with a similar racquet ?

    The squash racquet has a dampening device in an illegal position, however that's one mighty fine looking Kneissl next to it. What was it like?

    it wasn't as comfortable as today's racquets of course, but to be honest i was expecting something worse... almost no vibrations, small frame but decent control. it was definitely better than the "squash one" which -i presume- was a lot more recent. ;)
    which year is this kneissl from, by the way ?

    about the dampening device (a rubber band), i had taken previous comments from TTW members into consideration (for the kneissl):
