Did they get a 5 year old to draft this? Pacific's Legal and Marketing teams massively need to up their game if this is the best they can produce.

The Fischer/Pacific frames have had that at the throats of their racquets several years. No, it is not Cortex-like and they make no claims about it. It is simply an evolutionary design element -- see the pre-Pro No 1's (Pro 98's) for the original design.

Thanks for the heads-up.

I have to demo anything Fischer related since I used a pro 1 for a couple years. Hopefully they make this new version a little stiffer like the old Pro 1 that was red/yellow. That had a stiffness of like 65 or something. Perfect cause it was firm but dampened.

Can anyone make out the stiffness on the X Force Pro (16x20)? The image gets too blurry when I zoom in on it.

mike_l, from where did you get the brochure?

I think the stiffness is 65 mate.
There's a new vacuum 90 as well:)

ditto the 65.....

db10s 01-22-2013 02:00 PM

So they have Cortex.... AND Basalt... Best of both worlds lol.

I thought only Technifibre had the ATP Tour logo... Look at the string package. :confused:

Tennisspieler 01-22-2013 02:09 PM

Any pics of the Pacific X Feel Tour from the brochure? Or any news about a new/updated version of that racquet? Thanks.

No, there is no such thing as 'Cortex' on a Pacific/Fischer.

And as far as 'Basalt', that was put into the final line of Fischer racquets (then called 'Black Granite'), and the first line of Pacifics was essentially a paint job of the Black Granite line.

Actually, if you look closely at the hoop of the X Force Pro, you can see the words 'Black Granite'.

Thanks. That's what I thought it said but wasn't 100% certain.

Interesting that, according to the brochure, the X Force Pro (16x20) and X Force have the 'Zero Tolerance', but the X Force Pro (18x20) does not. I wonder why?

That is interesting. Zero Tolerance came about with the "green/yellow" Magnetic Speed Pro No 1's as far I recall. The earlier "green/red" version was +/- 6 grams, and had the current throat design (as did the "green'yellow").

Unless my eyes (and the blurry pics) are playing tricks on me, the 18x20 frame looks different from it 16x20 siblings at the throat, with a design that goes back to the pre M-Speed style. Those racquets still usually had weight well within the stated range. It does look like the frame is slightly different beyond the string pattern.
