    Last year I added some lead to my TC95 16x19, but I guess I exaggerated. Too powerful and not enough maneuvrable. I eliminated all of it. Inspired by your post, last week I added just 2 grams at 3 and 9. I am enthusiast, I never played so well with that racquet. I think that the impressione of...

    First I went back to the TC95 16x19, then to the K7Red. Occasionally I buy other racquets :giggle: but I regularly use only those two ones.

    Same for me, I abandoned the TC97 18x20 a long time ago. I do not regret my decision. Maybe I am not a 18x20 guy.

    Is there a clay player from the 1970s, 1980s, or 1990s that could have beaten Nadal at Roland Garros?

    Even if we cannot prove anything about different eras matches, we can get an idea of the effect of a different technology by considering spaghetti stringing. Vilas, a Nadal before Nadal, lost to Nastase after winning 53 matches in a row. He said he lost to a racquet, not to a player. That...

    Head Pro Tour 2.0 - Ask Us All Your Questions! (podcast now here!)

    I do not know how to describe it, sorry. I can say the K7red is the most confortable Angell I used, and it has a fantastic feeling. Better than its sibling K7lime, even if the lime seems to be more competitive.

    Twaron, also called Aramid, is present in Angell K7, too.

    Impulse buying

    Me two. 8-B After hurting myself, a calf forced me to stop a couple months, I have started using Nike Prestiges and I feel so sure not hurt me again that I need a second pair to feel safe. Nothing rational, but I just ordered another pair.

    The one meaningful RA is the unstrung one, because one can put stiffer or softer strings at different tensions.

    Best multi for a poly player

    I feel that Gosen string is better than Velocity for my game and arm sensibility. It seems more spin-friendly, even if I am not much of a topspin player. However I slice alot and backspin is my cup of tea. AK Control is more rigid, I played just once and did not like it. It could be even more...

    Best multi for a poly player

    I have been playing nat gut for a while, but it was definitely too sensitive to humidity and maybe even heat. Even during the same session it changed its behaviour. In winter I play indoors with a heating air flow that pushes a lot of humidity on the court. I cannot change my gamestyle...

    Someone even uses Noene grips in order to dampen vibrations.

    Several months ago I bought a used TC95 18x20, but after an initial enthusiasm I stopped using it, going back to K7 red or TC95 16x19. Anyway from time to time I tried to use it again, without much success. Then two weeks ago I felt it natural in my hand, and played well with it. The last time I...

    Best multi for a poly player

    I have been using Head Velocity for a while, but stopped when I discovered Gosen AK PRO CX. I think it is not exactly a multi, but I think it provides what Injured Again is looking for.
