    please enlighten us. how is it any different from getting your racquet strung adn then cutting the strings out to replace with another set.

    it's the same thing.

    Have you played with this yet? I'm wondering what one of these plays like with a lightweight synth grip and what affect it has on static weight/balance etc?

    I'm only 16, but this is my mini collection of rackets, excluding the ones that I have sold. Note: I buy all my rackets by myself, so I would not say I'm spoiled.

    That was exactly my problem with my old Pure Drive Cortex! I felt like even though the racket wasn't overly heavy, it had poor balance. Way too much mass at 1 and 11. Oddly enough, I just played with a friend's PDC and loved it. Maybe mine was poor quality control? Or fake... Maybe I need to post some picks.

    I'd really like to know how the blacked out one with the synth grip plays and feels?

    Presumably it feels lighter than the leather gripped ones? Any specs?

    My collection over the years. Unfortunately, its too many so most of these are in the for sale forum. Going to miss a lot of these rackets.

    Awesome. Another Head team member. I will get a few of mine out of storage and take a pic.

    Well played. But to help you dry those tears, don't forget to take a look every week or so on The Big Auction Site - there are deals to be had. With the economy as it is, there are deals.

    Great pic Gazav! Where and when did you get the Tour Team bag?

    edit: I've been searching several sites and, with the help of "the wayback machine" and going back to TW 2011, I see it's the Djokovic series bag. I couldn't tell by the signature on the bag itself lol Looks good man!

    Picked these up a couple weeks ago. Was happy to find the YT Prestige new at retail back in March...not quite as cheap as I would have liked but considering these have probably been sold out at most places for a little while

    Every week? I check multiple times per day! I recently acquired a Prestige Tour in superb condition for a very reasonable price. It's nice but I'm used to much stiffer racquets.

    I just missed out on a Microgel Prestige, the auction ended with nobody buying. Is there a way I can still buy it safely?

    The blacked out EXO93 weighs in at 344 without leather grip, same the green EXO93 without leather grip, plays the same too.

    For info the Straight Shaft weighs 342, the Graphite Tour 348.

    T-Fight 295's. I added silicone in all the handles as they were too light plus lead tape so they weigh around 360/370 now. I may have overdone it lol but they play alot more solid now.

    PS syntex I dont have permission to view your photo you might wish to post it here as its pretty useless without public permissions

    Thanks. not as sweet as sexpistols but they're nice sticks. I have big banger strung on them all but at low tension, thinking of replacing them with a much higher tension multifil string as when I first bought them I really liked the high tension but could not generate any power due to the lightness
