    I don't think it's any larger than the previous versions' throats. I think it's also normal of the blade to have a bit of a longer throat, but it causes the handle to be shorter which is annoying at first for a 2HBackhand.

    Wilson claims it's their 15 pack, but it's probably mopre comparable to a 9 pack or a 12 pack. I really like this bag, it's a great size- not too big but no too small. Like the previous version of this bag, it is more narrow on the top and then widens at the bottom, which looks sharp. It has moisture and temp guard, and also 4 accessory pockets. On top of it all, the color scheme is really classy. :) Overall really happy with it.

    Heavy. They're both 320 grams unstrung with the plastic wrap still on.

    My RDS 003's are both 321 grams strung with overgrip and dampener. RDiS 100 MP are both 342 grams strung with overgrip and dampener.

    Definitely a great looking bag, I just bought a much needed replacement and got the 9 racquet one. You say the 15 is more like 12? Hopefully that doesn't mean the 9 is actually a 7, that's a little too small...

    It's all stock, I only added an overgrip and dampener. No lead tape!

    The 18x20. It played like a comfortable Kblade Tour for me (bigger sweetspot, almost equal control and easier on-demand power). The balance of the 16x19 is a bit off from what I am used to; I like my frames more HL. Nonetheless, the pick-up weight still makes it a good candidate for customization.

    Here's some of my stuff. The blx prostaff was my stick for a bit, but I'm going back to Head prestiges. The CC feather II's just came today. They fit my slightly wider feet pretty well so that's good.

    Joining a tennis club very soon so hope to be taking the plastic off my anniversary prestige as soon as possible :-D

    It's amazing what people will willingly part with/discard. I'd keep them even if I never used them.

    Seriously, who doesn't want to keep a PC600?! Even if you don't play with one, they're just pretty to look at!

    I have 4 PC600, 3 in pristine condition and easily 9+/10, 1 still has plastic wrap on the leather. They are the 2006/2007 TW re-issue.

    I'm just waiting for some fool to pay me $1000 for each. :twisted:

    It's one of my favorite HEAD racquets. I played with them for a little bit. They are a little softer than the Prestige Pro. There was also a Elektra Pro that was part of the line that was softest of the three.
