    haha I was wondering the same thing, but you've got to admit, it is applicable to each of the threads! :)

    Sorry, I can't help it when people keep making the same threads over and over again. I'll post my new pics, when I find it relevant to the thread.

    There are currently 3 threads, in which vibration dampeners are discussed. I post the same pic of the dampener I prefer, just to be helpful. Why should I make 3 different pics of my Babolat dampener, when one pic will be just as good ?

    Same goes for racket and gear threads.....I'll post my pics in each of these threads too :)

    I opted for:

    100 SQ" frame

    16 X 19 string pattern

    27" length

    70 RA stiffness

    320 gram not stringed weight (circa 333-336 gram with strings)

    310 mm, 10 points headlight not stringed, which means circa 7 points headlight with strings

    Wilson shaped W black leather grip

    Clear grommets (I know the red grommets looks great, but I prefer a racket kept in low key clear and black always with white Wilson Pro overgrip and eventually with white Prince Recoil strings for rainy humid weather, where my Babolat Natural gut strings won't work)

    [​IMG]

    It feels great, more power than my 95" K-Factor rackets, but I felt I would try a 16 x 19 string pattern, a bit lighter weight in a 100 SQ" frame but still with a classical frame design.

    In my view, the Vantage frame performs great.
    I need to try it with Prince Recoil strings soon. Right now I have Luxilon BB ALU Power Spin in the mains and Technifibre X-One Biphase 16 red in the crosses...........I use 60 string savers in my two Vantage rackets in a ZIG ZAG pattern to avoid string movement. I feel like the Biphase moves around a lot. I will preferably use the two Vantage for the rainy humid days, where the ball gets extra heavy and everything is a bit more slow, therefore I opted for a more powerful frame and will NOT use natural gut in this racket - it would probably also be a bit too powerful for me with natural gut in this frame anyway :)

    I have natural gut in the crosses in my 4 K Factor rackets, and this is playing great in this control orientated 95" frame :grin:

    What exactly is a "Vantage racquet"? I've never heard of them. Do they have a website?

    /\ They make custom racquets to the specs you provide.

    I'm afraid I am a racist. I almost cannot stand anything but a white grip! Anyone else have this syndrome?

    BTW has anyone noticed that the k logo on the sides of the K's have a different trade mark logo? the k95 has a ® and the k90 has a ™ does anyone know why?
