Basalt Wars: A New Hope
 
After years of faithful service, and countless battles Jollikin Skywalker plots his betrayal. Unfulfilled promises of the false prophet Basalt Gods have lead him to dire peril.
Supply lines have become stretched too thin to sustain, and the empire's continued shipments of substandard weaponry have made the battle tested mercenary unable to wage large scale battle.

The embers of betrayal are being fanned to flame as Darth Jolly begins to survey blueprints of rebel weaponry. He sends an encoded transmission to the famed smuggler Tom Solo, and confides in his most loyal allies; Joel Joel Binks, Denni Wan Kenobi, Pickle 3PO, VS Babafett, and AliD2.

A tale of love, loss, and Karophite.

I find your lack of faith disturbing...

Are you still playing a lot? Does this mean the clubs are being retired?

As honorary chairman of the welcoming committee, it's my privilege to present a laurel and hearty handshake to our new... Innegra.

Yea, playing the same as ever. All my k90s broke, and I got 3 new ones. The blxps cave in almost instantly, so I've got to switch to something else.

let your anger make you strong, yes!

Dunlops? or the Prestiges are as good as ever...

The Dunlops which I have tried felt really flimsy to me, and I need something with an 18x20 pattern, so the 100 is out.

I REALLY liked the IG Prestige (and gave it a glowing review) so my plan is to get one of them in the next week or so and start tinkering with strings and tensions and weights (oh my!).

I am open to other things, but it has to be a small(ish) head, somewhat stiff (stiffer the better), and 18x20 pattern.

Head IG prestige or yonex vcore 89 would be my suggestions. Good luck.

I would give the regular bio 200 a hit, just so you get a fair example of a good dunlop (there are other models I don't like at all), but I do think the IG prestige will be fine.

Hmmm... Never considered the Yonex.

Just looking at the thing it seems like it would be lame to serve with.

Maybe I am just making things up?

I'll have to give it a ride if given the opportunity.

The last Dunlop I actually liked was the Mfil 200.

I thought it did everything OK, but wasn't outstanding in any area. But I could have easily played with it, the N90 was just a little better at everything so I chose the Wilson. I did consider the Dunlop on the merits of lower cost though.

It's a 16M though. I just started hitting again with its grandfather, the RD Ti70 with a fairly ordinary syn gut. Still a classic and it's 18x20.

So you're giving up on Wilson? :(
..but the Wilson BLX six.one 18x20 sounds exactly what you're looking for. closed string pattern, good enough plow-thru and perfect stiffness at 65. one last chance?

Might be worth a demo, but I am really turned off by Wilson now, and have heard tell of the oval beam frames caving too.

I mean, I went through 17 N90s, and 23 K90s. And they all lasted YEARS, and these new ones are caving in under a month of mostly playing doubles?

Really?

Yea, I need something current though, because once spring rolls around I will need at minimum 6 frames.

from abuse or just lots of string jobs?
