    New Donnay X-Series - My Thoughts

    In my experience thin beamed frames have smaller sweetzones than widebody ones. I feel however that my donnay gold 99 has a rather large sweetzone for such a thin frame. The donnay pro one os has a pretty small sweetzone in comparison. Its true though that you frame fewer balls with a thin...

    Racquet Selection & TE - Somewhat different perspective. Am I totally off base?

    The pk ki5 also comes in a lighter package. Ki5 295 plays much like a radical mp and is very armfriendly.

    New Donnay X-Series - My Thoughts

    I dont have any 94s but the feeling i get from my gold 99s is that i dont really need poly to tame the frame so to speak. Next string job for me will be natural gut mains and poly crosses. Excellent frames really.

    New Donnay X-Series - My Thoughts

    I have a lot of racquets. I was a ps 85 and then ps tour 90 user. Then i decided i needed something bigger. Played kneissl for a while. A few völkls and recently i have been playing ki 5. I prefer prostaff type racquets but i need it to be lighter now. I think the gold is a better racquet. The...

    New Donnay X-Series - My Thoughts

    I have bought two gold 99s and I really like the racquet. I play with it stock with just an overgrip. It is comfortable and stable for it weight and frame thickness. It is perhaps a tad too low powered for me but it is also very maneuverable, always a trade off. I would like to try the plat 99...

    The good old prostaff days on TW with links

    I loved the old hps tour 95 One of the vetter frames ever. You have to wonder why Wilson isnt making such à frame now. I am hoping the donnay gold and a leather grip will feel close to it.

    Just hit with a Pro Staff 6.0 95 today!

    I think we should leave out the 6.1s in this discussion as that is a completely different stick. We have the original 6.0 95 After that came the relatively unkown but great playing HPS 6.0 95 (red) And then came the Black yellow prostaff tour 95 I believe the original and the tour 95 plays...

    Just hit with a Pro Staff 6.0 95 today!

    Which hyper prostaff? There was a red one which was stiff but superb feel and the black yellow which was softer and player like the old 6.0 95 iirc.

    Völkl PB4, PB V1 MP and PB V1 OS

    Took me a while but today I got the PB4 PBV1 MP and OS. Only had time to stribg the mp and the 4. I really likes the mp. Less power on groundstrokes than the dnx os, which is good, but equal or better for serving. Didnt hit much with the 4 but it is an interesting racquet for sure. Feels very...

    Powering down a racket.....

    Kevlar strings will power down a racquet more than poly. Of course they are bad for the arm.

    ProKennex Ki15 PSE vs Ki15 (300)

    On the european website there are different versions of the Ki15 than on the US site. US site has Ki15 and Ki15 PSE with strung weights of 289 and 326 respectively. The european site has the Ki15 PSE and then two versions Ki1 (260) and Ki15(300) the former seems 10 grams lighter than the...

    Favorite Volkl Power Bridge Stick

    I would very much like to try the PB7

    Völkl PB4, PB V1 MP and PB V1 OS

    There is something unique about these sticks. Typically in lighter weight wide frame sticks there is no control and too much power but not so here. It is not a players stick but the combination of power, control and comfort is hard to beat. I am going to order a PB V1 and a PB4 to compare.

    Völkl PB4, PB V1 MP and PB V1 OS

    Has anyone played with all of them? I cant demo Völks here. I really like the DNX V1 OS. Would also like to know how they compare against the PK SQ Limited.
