    get more control and a little less power with the i.rads. my game is better with an 18x20, at the moment anyway. will string em up for old times sake since I loved serving with them!!

    I would say the Mfil 200 is a mix between the PS 85 and the Head Classic Mid. I really love the way the Classic Mid feels from the baseline, but I don't enjoy touch shots and net play with it. I really enjoy the PS 85 and I think it's perfect all around. Returning serves with the PS 85 can be a pain sometimes and a larger sweetspot would make baseline rallies a little easier. Anyway, this is where the Mfil 200 comes in. The flexibility feels like it's in between these two racquets (not too flexible and not too stiff). Although I enjoy the flexible feel of the Classic Mid, flexible frames just don't feel right at the net. To keep this short, it hits as well as my Classic Mid from the baseline and gives me that solid feel that the PS 85 has at the net.

    Wow, I see both a Davis Classic and a Donnay there. I had both of those racquets and a Wilson T2000. I think it would be cool to start a classic wooden racquet league.

    got a good deal on the i.rads and they are still in good shape. i like the lm rads too - a little more flexy than the i.rad - but not enough to change.

    just bought 3 tecnifibre 315's so will have to update my photo.

    Nothing beats the feel of leather ;) Plus it makes my racquets a little more headlight.

    My family is in the process of getting rid of a lot of stuff, so unfortunately it all goes into my "stringing" room, so it's too messy to get pictures of all of my tennis things that are in there (or all of my tennis things period). The first picture is of my stringing machine (about 5 years old), where some of my tools, packs of string, and such are located (reels are off in a separate area). Also includes 4 racquets, my 3 Tour 90's and my Vantage that I don't know what to do with. Second is of my 3 Tour 90's prior to matching the specs. If anyone wants I can take pictures along the process of matching my racquets. The reason one still has strings in it is for me to determine my wear pattern so I can see if I can move the COP closer to that area. I have a closer picture of the wear pattern for my use. I have other racquets laying around, but like I said, the stringing room isn't clean enough to get pictures of everything.

    Masamusou, when you try to shift the centre of percussion you are going to take into account the vibration dampner aren't you? If you find that the COP is below your wear pattern what you could do is shift the dampner from the bottom of the string bed to the top which would do the same job, add weight up high, move the sweetspot and be perfectly legal.

    I've already taken that idea into account, but to me it doesn't feel right. My wear pattern is in the upper part of the string bed (generally between 1/2 and 3/4 of the way from the throat and a little off to one side) and the dampener up at the top doesn't feel right at all. I only have a few grams to match the specs between the 3 racquets so the COP will probably only come into account for the 2 that get matched to the heaviest. It is usually possible to get the weight, balance, swingweight combo the same with slightly different COP's.

    Vantage is a company, you can buy their rackets at vantagetennis.com, they sell stock rackets, but the main reason people buy them is because you can customise your own racket spec from what they have on offer.............

    Have you actually customized a Vantage racquet for yourself and played with it?

    Wow! That's quite a collection. I'm impressed, disturbed, amazed and in shock all at the same time.

    Next time you feel the urge to throw a racquet into the ground, wind up really big...and throw it into a UPS truck and have it sent to my house instead. :D
