    Hi TW,

    Interested to see who has, or is considering switching, to which racket?

    Did Mark switch to the Prince ESP Tour 98?

    Chris looks like 95S

    Spencer seemed to really like ESP Tour 98 and 95S but also said he was toying around with Blade 98S?

    Michelle seems very taken with the Graphene Radical Pro.

    Any others? Jason, Tiff, Andy, Sean, Karly, Britt?

    Doesn't affect my buying choices, just interested!

    Cheers

    David

    ps. did Andy really mean to score the ESP Tour 98 as a 5.7?

    I am quite smitten with the Graphene Radical Pro :)

    And yep, Andy really meant that score, he really did NOT like that racquet!

    To be fair, I'm really surprised Andy did not review the Response 97.

    I wasn't on the review, but I have hit the racquet a fair bit because it's right in my spec wheelhouse. And I really like it! The Response 97 and the Graphite 100 Longbody are my two favorites of the new lot from Prince.

    The Response is a little heavier than my TT Warrior, which I liked because I add weight to the Warrior. It's also a little stiffer, which produces a livelier response but makes it also a little less comfortable. A great racquet though nonetheless!

    Exactly the reason why I was surprised. I thought it was close to what you usually review here. Thanks for the answer.

    Dgdavid,

    I am currently looking for a new racquet now that my VCORE 100 S is no longer. I am interested in trying out the new Yonex EZONE Ai frames but can always fall back on the Babolat Pure Drive. Will let you know if I have any success!

    When I came back from maternity leave, I started hitting first with the Organix V1 Midplus, but I've moved onto the V1 Pro. I love this one for its comfort, stability and power level. It really is a versatile racquet and is the one I'm using for string playtests. Although it's not an official switch, another racquet that I'm carrying with me (and this might surprise some because of its spec) is the Pro Kennex Ki Q5X. Crisp, yet comfortable, and packed with power.


    Thanks,
    Tiff

    I'm really, really enjoying the Wilson Six One 95S right now. It's slightly more control oriented than my Steam 99S. And because it's lower powered, I can swing harder to generate similar spin. Give it a demo!

    The 95s scored better on the review so it's makes me want to try it. I like the power of the 99s.
