You know, I have finally come into my own with this racquet. I own it along with an i.Prestige and an HPS7.1. No other racquet I've played with gives me the thump and consistency of the Ti.Classic. I get a good solid thump with the i.Prestige MP, but my elbow took a good thumping along with it. Also, I'd have to say that based on my playing with these two racquets, not all 18x20's play the same. I have Technifibre NRG2 18g (61lbs) strung in the i.Prestige and I get more spin and control from my Ti.Classic strung with Head Rip Control 17 @ 61lbs. Did Head not even pitch the Ti.Classic to the pros? I don't understand. I like it even better than the LM Prestige (I demo'd both the Mid and the MP). With it's weight, balance and thump, the only thing I've hit with recently that came close was the Wilson NCode SixOne (95). For the price that I paid for my Ti.Classic new ($59), I'd rather try to find another one, than drop $179 for a new Wilson. If anyone knows a website where I can pickup another brand new Ti.Classic, please post it (I currently have size 5 grip, but I'd like to drop to a size 4, then replace the stock grip with a Gamma Hi-Tech gel grip). Also, I'd love to hear comments from others who own or have used a Ti.Classic (especially anyone who has any insight/ideas as to why Head d/c'd it).
