    There are some pro stocks on strings discussion forums, an italian recently sold some x force pros for about 70 euros, IMO that's a reasonable price, head and wilson pro stocks sell for much more... Unless you buy a Baghdatis pro stock, might fetch for some more

    Hey gang. Quick question. One of my kids picked up one of my gen-1 X-Fast Pros today and played with it... Well, I think they now have a new owner :)

    The question is, does this grip pallet fit all Pacific racquets? I was thinking to change over to his grip size.

    After a long hiatus I've returned........ only this time instead of Fischer I choose Pacific since no Fischers are available. I must say I'm impressed with how Pacific has stayed true to the Fischer lineage. My choice this time : the Pacific BX2 X Force Comp ..... the only mods were to replace the grip with leather. Must add that Pacific quality is as impressive as that of Fischer (specs of my 2 match perfectly tho purchased at different times from different suppliers). I with with this racquet because of my advancing age and the racquets 105 inch head size, and must say I'm glad to be home !

    I am in the same position you are Charlie, tried tons of racquets just to come back to my Vacuum Pro Classic 98, fortunately, still have five left; therefore, I am set since I am not playing competitively that much anymore.

    Hey, Oscar, I really wish I had saved a few of my mag tours but I'm getting along really well with the BX2 X Force Comp....... there is nothing that compares with that Fischer "feel".

    Anything like this from Pacific?

    I think it was my favorite among the Pro No.1 Kafelnikov and older Revolution Pro 98.

    Note ........ TW has dropped the price of ALL of its Pacific Racquet offering to 109.95 today ......... could Pacific be replacing all of it racquet offerings in the near future ?

    I'm afraid this is because TW is dropping Pacific altogether...

    That would be too bad !! They are carried elsewhere tho and the BX2 line prices are reduced at other places, so possibly that line is being discontinued.

    Yes, and yes. Pacific has the new 'BXT' line coming out, and they've discontinued the X Force Comp, the X Feel Tour, and the X Feel Pro 95.

    Additionally, TW mentioned elsewhere that they will not be carrying the BXT line of frames.

    Is the X Force 98 on the Pro No.1? It doesn't say it is but the frame specs other than weight seems to be of the same mold.

    The Pacific racquets have the No Tolerance like the Fischer racquets. Easy to find 2 or 3 with the same weight and balance.

    No I mean to my liking, the racquets are light for me by a good margin.

    How about X Feel Pro 90?
    It's great racquet but so ugly :( If it would be discontinued I have nothing to wait for and maybe (price below E100) I would buy it and pay one art student to repaint it.

    Technically speaking, they X Force 98 and the X Force Pro No 1 are NOT of the same mold. The 'X Force' and 'X Force Pro' and from the Fischer Pro No One FT mold circa 2005:

    The 'X Force Pro No 1' is from the original Fischer VT Pro 98 mold, circa 1990-something (not sure when it was introduced). If their marketing is to be believed, it is from the exact same mold that Baghdatis' (and Kafelnikov's) frames were made from (that is what the '252' signifies...the number of the mold).

    It will fit all 'BX1' and 'BX2' grips (and Fischer 2nd gen pallets), but the new BXT line has a different system.

    You'd need to send it back to Pacific any way as they don't sell them to the public. They'll swap them free of charge, but you need to pay for shipping.
