    I was just curious because I currently play with the C-10 Pro, which I purchased from TW. TW does not sell the Pro Tour. Are these two different racquets? If so, could someone please post the specs for the Pro Tour? Thanks in advance.

    I could be wrong, but the Tour it's a 93 sqi instead of 98; also has higher swingweight and it's less HL.

    Thank you. Sounds almost like a Prestige Classic. Does it have a 16 by 19 pattern or an 18 by 20? Has anyone hit with it?

    No - the C10 Pro Tour has a 16x19 pattern. And its balance is significanly less head light than the Prestige Classic.

    It's been a while, but just acquired a pair (in transit hopefully). I thought the pattern was the same as the t10 mid. The 16 x 19 is good news to my ears as it's probably better for my weary arm....

    I'm pretty sure the Tour has 18 mains.

    I have not tried the C-10 Pro. But the C-10 Pro Tour should be classified as a Tweener with loads of uncontrollable power. Totally different from the Prestige.

    FYI, the C10 Pro Tour is in the same line as the C10 Pro 98", only smaller 93" head and slightly less headlight than C10 Pro 98." It is Volkl's most demanding stick, yet oh so sweet when you strike the half-dollar sized sweet spot. It is not categorized as a tweener and is not a powerful racket. The pattern, as confirmed by Volkl, is indeed 16x19...

    I actually own one (new) for 2weeks. It only cost $100 new here. Change string twice because I thought I got the setup wrong. I use head fibergel at 50 pound then some pacific natural gut at 55 pound. Total wast of money. Was using the max200g and thought I should follow the Mac way. Impossible to control. Sold it to an guy who put it up on **** bearly after 1 week!. He sold it. I call that guy up and he repeated my 'sob' story. This racket is high on reputation but very difficult to use.

    The one thing this is good at is serve. Can't even do a decent volley! And I was and now back to using the max200g almost all my life. Sometime you must try it before you realise how bad it is.
