    Game Changer Racquets (for your game)

    Definitely my first experience with a ported Prince frame (EXO3 Tour 100). Truth be told, I can play my best tennis with that (kind of) frame because it's so much more forgiving than any other (non-ported) frame out there (says a happy Blade user ;) ).

    What are the rackets you carry in your bag?

    2 Blades (about equally specc'ed) and 1 Völkl PB 9 if I have to lend my buddy a stick because he's broken a string and does not have a back-up in his bag.

    Fans of hockey AND fighting? What is your top 5 ranking?

    All-time list would give you better options here - can't name Stu 'the grim reaper' Grimson, can I? Edit: Dale Hunter No1 on my list - not just a fighter.

    Yes, the "i.L." was fantastic! Also love those diagonal color blocks. Such classy designs.

    NEW Prestige MP 360

    ... But you gotta give it to Howard, he's grasping what so many ppl here on tt complain about wrt Head's product strategy. And technically, he's correct in listing those molds ;)

    Is there any hope Pacific tennis rackets will return?

    Hehe, yeah still do ;) But I'm down to 10 Fischers in total (4 VPCMP, 2 MComp95, 2 MTour100, 2 BGTour100). Truth be told, I'll never get to use all the racquets I have in my lifetime...

    Is there any hope Pacific tennis rackets will return?

    Adding to what I wrote in post #13: I have four Fischer Vacuum Pro Classic MP (with the 'Retro' design; got them all NOS) and they feel much softer than the Pacific X Tour 97 I had some years ago. Really like a night and day difference. To be precise, the Pacific didn't feel 'bad' at all and it...

    Is there any hope Pacific tennis rackets will return?

    Very good insight by Frankc I think. Even though I prefer the original Fischer frames to their Pacific heirs ;) If you can manage to resist the temptations evoked by what you see on TV and in the hands of your tennis partners, those small brand racquets do offer unique playing characteristics.

    2020 Australian Open - Men's Singles - Official Tournament Thread

    On a side note: I thought they switched to Bo3 for these AO - how else can you explain "Zverev in 3"?!

    Tommy Paul - such an exciting player! Hope he can build on this and become a real threat. American tennis looks so promising to me with guys like him and Tiafoe, but they need to come through!
