    Just curious, Greg G, What string setup you using? I love the 89 Tour for everything, except when Im getting tired and start shanking or returning agains a big server. Following your posts, I actually played a Vcore tour 97 310g, w/ lead, for those times i felt i was starting to miss the sweetspot. But, the feel was too different and ended up selling it, the ball just didn't have the same dwell time, therefore not as much feel.
    I'm thinking of demoing the Tour G 330 or 310.

    Why not try a 93F with lead ?

    The string I have on is tour bite 17 (strung over a year ago but hardly used) at 46/44. I'll have it restrung with TB soft at 42/40 and have another go at it. The VCT 97 310 was pretty good too, I still have em and will probably have another go one of these days.

    I thought about it, but I prefer to spend no more than $100-ish/stick. So, I don't like to try racquets I know I won't buy, because I might like them too much! At first I wasn't even looking at the 89 Tour to replace my original Donnay Pro one, but I jumped on a deal for two in 9/10 condition for like 90 bucks! And there was a lot to love about them. I played most of my USTA season with 'em. I had a Volkl organix 10 mid for a few months, and the extra 4 inches in the 93 sq in head did make a pretty big difference with returns of serve. So, I probably would like the new mids from Yonex. I'm also hitting the ti-80 and the ezone xi 98 every so often. They both feel quite different from the 89, but they are more forgiving. Does Yonex make a bad racquet? Everyone I've tried, I really like d the large consistent sweetspot

    I like TB Soft a lot, but find Moto Soft very similar, but softer and more consistent through the life of the string. TB Soft had more "bite" when fresh but loses that super grab within like an hour for me.

    current setup is kirschbaum proline II 17l @ 52# all around. Feels great on all my strokes, love the crispy feedback this frame provides. :)
