    I'm still playing around with the weight/balance to get it right but right now I have them with 8 grams in the handle and a total of 4 grams at 3 and 9 o'clock. No complaints with this set up really. Pretty great access to spin but could use a little more mass for me to really wail on the put aways/ approach shots. I want to try to get them as close to my prestiges as possible.

    Hmm, wonder if you took the last 4 5/8 on TW...
    I bought some of the Moto/Glide packs that were on sale, they came out to be 25% cheaper tahn just buying the Glide by itself. The picture racquet is using Moto 17 in the mains, which is a pretty good string. Glide is not a poly it is super stretchy and while stringing it really stretches. I feel like it adds power and softness to the stringbed. As a cross string with Moto, comparing Glide to iO 16 its a livelier bed, with as much spin and if I have less directional control it is marginal. At any rate, the Moto/ Glide string combo flies forward with nasty spin. I have had hitting partners shanking and also standing there and watching the ball go by. I am going to use some of the other Glide half sets with some Poly Force 17 next.

    With the weight, yes they play pretty softly (on my arm at least). Without weight it was a little taxing on contact.

    This is the coolest collection I have ever seen. I know I am not supposed to ask but how much would it take to buy it from you?

    You guys realize this thread has been going strong for NINE YEARS STRIAGHT. Anyways, I have two original Wilson Juice 100 rackets. They have Wilson leather grips on them covered with a Tournagrip. They are strung with Babolat Rpm Blast at 56lbs. I also have a Head liquid metal 8 racket with 20 grams of lead added at 3&9, that is strung with a babolat rpm blast/gamma stinger hybrid at 60lbs. It has the same grip as the two Juices. Then I have a yellow and black 6 racket Wilson bag. And I have an Aluminum Wilson Cobra from the early 80's. That is strung with Babolat Rpm Blast at 40lbs(very small head). And I want to post pics of my gear, can someone tell me how to take it from my gallery and put it in here?

    WOW. Nice collection, and as Wilson plans to stop the 90 line, that could also be a precious collection some day.:twisted:

    I've only played with the K90 as it's often claimed to be the best tour 90. Which one do you like best?

    I have yet to find the N90 and the hyper prostaff tour 90.If i do, its a collection worth having.
    from my experience, here is my opinion about the 4 90s that i have. i cant put a favorite on one of the rackets, however i do like them all since they have same plowthrough and precision that companies cant replicate.
    (All of them are modded to my specs with leadtape and silicone in the handle)

    K90: It has a crisp feel to it, but didnt encounter any discomfort what so ever. If your technique is right, this racket can be a deadly weapon with precision.

    BLX Six.One Tour: As most people would describe it, its like a prostaff with a dampner. its pretty nice feeling if im not hitting really seriously. sometimes i take it out because i like the cosmetics and wear the oufit that federer had in US open 2011 (imo best outfit)

    PS90BLX: Seems this racket retain that soft feel, but added little crispness, but not too much. its like right in the middle between the k90 and the 6.1 tour

    PS90 2014: yet to with with it, but its like they stiffen the racket quite a bit

    ^^ Federer never used any descendants of the Pro Staff 6.1 Classic line. Fail.

    And beyond the Pro Staff 6.0 85, everything is debatable.

    Although, Wilson's paintjob department took a dump after the Hyper series.

    Haven't been "collecting" a long time. A few of them in need of some proper TLC - and I haven't had the time lately.

    Most of these I saved from being thrown out or picked up at garage sales for $1-3.

    Compared to my pure drives, the pure control tour weighs more, has a higher swingweight, is more flexible, and has a denser string pattern. All of this leads to a flatter, heavier ball and I feel much more control (haha) from this frame. It also stands up well against harder hitters, and you are rewarded for taking full confident swings.

    Compared to the speed pro, it's very similar, except I find it has a lot more stability and spin potential. It's also a lot more comfortable as it is more flexible and I can definitely feel a "give" when hitting the sweetspot. It's easier to hit deep and through the court with the PCT whereas with the speed pro I often found myself hitting short.

    I find the Speed Pro to be very dead the 1 month I hit with it, and I am curious to try out the PCT for an extended demo test in the future. Thanks for the feedback !!!!!!!! :)

    A dream. Once I really let the racket do more of the work, (vs. with a Pure Drive) I really have felt dialed in hitting all types of serves.

    that there was no regular IG Speed Pro. The IG Speed Pro was a Europe only release.
