    98, but it looks more like a 95 or something, it looks about that of a radical.

    This poll provokes my thoughts.

    The foundation in our mind is mid, midplus and OS, with level of control varying degree from one group size to another.

    What if the grouping of headsize was originally according to the OP's conventions? Perhaps then our idea of control association with headsize group would not be the same...Perhaps even a 100 head size would be considered in the same ballpark as a 107.

    Tried playing with 98 but kept going back to 90 head size. Now trying 88 head size (Yonex Ti 70 mid) to see how it plays out.

    Prince Mono at 97 sq head is insane !!! One of the hidden treasures out there!

    I have tried to go with smaller headsizes for about a year or so...and then now i am convinced that it's just not meant to be. I am an OS user.

    I could get by using Diabo MP, my first purchase of my own stick of choice, but I dont get anything out of it and lose a lot in comparison to using OS.

    I purchased one for my collection, and have had a hard time putting it down. I love it, although have not completely switched. However, it is getting harder and harder to go back to anything else.

    Just to add>>> these frames are so hard to come by, I don't think it will be realistic to stay with them.

    Does the string tension "feel" different depending on the head size?

    I used to have a PS 6.0 85 that felt perfect when strung at 62 lbs. I am wondering if a 95 sq. in. head will need a diferent tension? Higher?

    I think you need to adjust those categories as the majority of people probably play with racquets between 90 and 99 sq. in. Also, a 98 sq. in. shouldn't be in the same category as a 90 sq. in. as they will play noticeably different.

    I am surprised nobody on this site has a tiny racket like an old wood one.

    A lot of us do but we don't consider them to be our main racquets.

    Currently 90" for me. It's been getting a bit demanding though, so it's soon to be 98". Turns out I am only human after all. :cry:

    "My own" category? :confused:

    Out of the 5 categories, over 64% of the voters (73 people) chose the "90-99 sq. in." category. I think with 5 categories, you'd want to distribute it so that they are more evenly distributed. And what would that percentage be? I'll let you figure it out since you seem to be so good at math. :roll:
