I don't know if it's more spin or what but I really love an open string pattern.
I guess my racquet progression went from the Kblade 18x20 and just going more and more open and loving it more and more.
I switched over to the Donnay pro one 16x19 and LOVED it. It was basically the same racquet as the Kblade just a more open string pattern.
Then the Vortex Tour 100 came out with a 14x15 pattern and I went nuts. It's basically the same stick as the Kblade and the Pro one but an even more open string pattern .
Now Wilson has really come out with something so intriguing.....less crosses than Mains ? WOW!!!!
Luckily I know the weight balance and size stick I love the most....but the more open a string pattern the better I seem to play.
I'm wondering if anyone knows the specs of the Wilson 99s? I saw the rumored specs and it seemed a bit on the light side . Will it be the same specs as the regular 99 steam just with a more open string pattern? Is there anyway to get the stick before January?
Also I've seen people talk about prince having a stick with a really open pattern....which stick is it?
I have never been so anxious to buy a stick.....this is more exciting than the IPhone 5 ...lol.
