Prince CTS Response Mid plus
Any info on this racquet? Headsize, weight, balance, stiffness, beam width anything? I know its 16x18, double bridge, made in taiwan.

It's the exact same mold, drill pattern and bumper guard as the CTS Synergy DB24 Mid Plus, so you might want to search for info on that frame which is more plentiful though still quite sparse. Not sure about the composition, but headsize is 100 inch, taper beam (20mm at narrowest part, to 24mm at tip).

I have Prince CTS Synergy DB 24. It seems that the headsize is 100, the strung weight with one overgrip is 345 g.

Thanks! NOw that you've mentioned it , the bumperguard actually says 24, so it must be really the same racquet. Mine fits all the info you've given. Do you guys know what the stiffness is?

My recall is the db26 replaced the cts lightning and the db24 replaced the cts response. There was a non double bridge version of the 24 I recall as well. I might have some 90's prince product brochures around somewhere, I will look when I get a chance.

Btw the cts response is a great frame IMHO

not much help on your 90 I'm afraid, I'm mainly into the 110s

Ok, I've just measured my newly bought (used) CTS Response MP, L3, strung with dunlop syn gut 1.30 at 57lbs, dampener, Wilson Cushion Aire Sponge and Gamma overgrip. The bottom of the handle (not sure if I can call that a buttcap) was partially broken, so I rebuilt it with durepoxi (about 2g max).

headsize: 100 sq in, most likely
weight: 365g
balance: around 32 cm
swingweight: ???
stiffness: ???

About 4 grommets are kind of broken, but I think they'll last for now. Next time I get it strung I'll see if the stringer can replace them individually.

The racquet was actually a bit shorter than 27". Even though it wasn't a noticeable difference, I decided to remove the pallet (Split the grip cushion system lengthwise with a razor knife, pretty easy to do) and replace it a bit lower by adding some tape inside the "buttcap". Now it's 27".

I'll try to give some feedback once I actually play with it, but it's one of the best looking racquets I've seen. The double bridge looks pretty cool when the sunlight catches it.
