    The prestiges have both been played with. i keep them unstrung because i dont use them that often. The one in between is the green and silver prestige 600. I believe it came out before the PC600

    Great, i have similar strings to the one you mentioned here and i'm thinking of using both the Yonex Tour Super 850 Pro and Gosen OG-Sheep Micro 17 as the crosses, never really thought of using the yonex strings in the Main.

    Have you thought of stringing the crosses -2 like what Yonex recommended for their frame?

    haha not really... if you look closely, the prestige tour has A LOT of paint chips and so does the PS 85. others are in pretty good shape

    nevertheless i like the way you arrange/display the racquets, anyway they are all great frames which belong together - none of them will feel left out in each other company :)

    Yup, dropping the tension in the gosen was a suggestion a friend of mine made after hitting with my racquet. Benefits were more pop out of the string which made the overall feel and playability go up without adding too much power like I initially thought. Even though it's somewhat stiff, I feel that the RDS has that flex that suits the 58/56 tension.

    alright, i normally string the same tension for both Mains and Crosses, i uses full poly or hybrid with poly(mains) to get the pop i desired. Looking at ur comments i guess its worth a try dropping the tension on the Gosen to achieve the pop

    nope, i think only 5 of them are strung at the moment

    the SP-coded Midplus with Yonex Tour Super 850 Pro 16 - Full bed at 60Ibs


    the UK-coded MID with Yonex Tour Super 850 Pro 16 - Full bed at 58Ibs (i think so)
    an SP-coded MID with Head Sonic Pro 17 - Full bed at 59Ibs
    the US-coded MID with Wilson Stamina strung at unknown tension (TW made a mistake and it came strung)
    the JP-coded MID strung with a unknown Japan string "Winning Shot" - unknown tension

    I weighed some C10s before leather and after. The TW wide/thin don't weigh any more than the synthetic grips. On the AG's, it just made them feel right.

    Hi all, liked all your posts... Err, at least, those I read, as I didn't visit the 153 pages or so of that cool topic... Here are two shots of my beloved Fischer Pro Classic 98... Now discontinued for a while... Hope Pacific will bring them into life...

    Cheers all ! ;)

    Wow your Fischer collections is awesome! Fischer Pro Classic 98 looks really great there! like your Fischer bags as well...

    Regarding the newer Fischer bag, is that a 6 or 9 pack? i'm looking to buy a Fischer bag too :)

    Hi, thanks for your comments:)

    The newer Fischer bag is the bigger one, the 9 pack. Great bag, just like the Babolat Aero bag IMO, but cheaper. If you want one, be quick as Fischer tennis doesn't exist any longer, so all of their stuff is being discontinued now. Glad you like the pics... Great racquets yeah... Cheers !

    PS : OK, this is not a 'for sale' thread, but the two Ti Pro Tours (the white, black and grey) are FS. PM for details.
