    Yeah the red and black ones are nice. I'm thinking about getting the white/navy ones. Many people say they are too heavy. They are a bit bulky, but I enjoy them.

    how are they compared to the other shoes you've had in terms of comfort (disregarding weight)? also, is it low to the ground? because im also interested in these...especially now that they're $60...im looking at either the black/red or white/black

    I find them very comfortable. The only other pair I own are the New balance 802's which I don't wear very often. The 802's are the best in comfort, but they don't look good at all. I can't really say if they are low to the ground because I haven't worn many pairs of tennis shoes to compare them. And I never roll my ankle with the pumps.

    have you rolled your ankle w/ your NB 802's? i ask this because i broke my foot after rolling my ankle playing basketball w/ the air max resolve plus. i don't know how i broke my foot from rolling my ankle, but yeah..it happened

    I don't know how old you are, but weekend warriors playing basketball seem to get injured all the time with fractures, torn ligaments, torn meniscus, ect.
    I use to play basketball all the time as a teenager and in my early in 20s, but now I won't even go onto bball court unless I am just shooting around or playing horse.

    I haven't worn them more than three times. But I never rolled my ankle with them. You could always get an ankle brace.

    Hey snoflexis,
    how do those tour 95s play?
    ive heard they are very flexy and need lead along the hoop to keep it from twisting

    thanks,

    hey, i've considered on getting new frames, like another pure drive or LM prestige MP, but for some reason, i never could let go of the frames, and just had to get 2 more. they are infact flexy and are pretty unstable when stock. however, they feel totally different w/ even the smallest amount of lead. as you can see on my last tour 95 on the right, there's lead at 3 and 9. it helps to plow through the ball more and keeps it from twisting like mad. but all in all...i love how it plays.

    yeah...im 17, but my foot's healing fast. but the only reason i think i broke it was because i was wearing nike air max resolve plus. they're pretty high to the ground compared to my previous BFIIs, and have no ankle protection...so the combination of the two just totally screwed me over

    snoflewis,

    How do you find the flex on the Tour 95's compared to your Presige? I've had a hit with the T95's (preferred them stock) but never in direct comparison to the Prestige.

    its only been 2 weeks since i broke my foot, so i havent had a chance to hit with the PC600 yet...i had a short hit w/ it w/ the broken foot, and it felt relatively soft...but i will let you know in more detail once i heal.

    I guess I should go ahead and update some of my stuff. My Volkl Tour 10 V-Engine Mids, my old black/red Barricade 3's, and of course, the new shale/silver/orange Barricade 4's. Yes, I know the shoes are big, they are size 14.
