    Head Graphene 360+Gravity Tour vs Speed Pro?

    lol. Yes still trying to figure out what those differences are. If the Speed Pro's swingweight was 325 and not 330, it would be close to perfect for me. It feels a tad heavy at times.

    Head Graphene 360+Gravity Tour vs Speed Pro?

    Anyone hit with both of these and how do they compare? They are almost identical in specs except for the beam is 1mm thinner on the Gravity Tour and the weight is a little lower, as is the swingweight. The power map shows them both to be about the same. They both have a nice low 60s RA rating...

    Matching Racquets: Balance or Weight?

    Swingweight is most important, but if you can't measure that exactly, then match weight and balance. Then play with both and see if they "feel" the same while playing. If one swings lighter than the other, slowly add weight to the tip to bring swingweight up with the minimal amount of added...

    G360+ Radical 2021

    Tried the 2021 Rad MP this past week and I'm not getting all the praise that the TW review crew is giving it. To me, it plays exactly like prior iterations and still needs lead tape at 3/9 to stabilize the hoop. It feels "pingy" on contact and plays pretty well, but compared to my 360+ Speed...

    Cheaper alternative to Asic's Resolution 8's?

    All the reviewers complained that they stretch out and lose shape quickly. Gasquet can afford a new pair for every match.

    Head Graphene 360+ Speed Pro

    Tried the 360+ Speed Pro last night for the first time for some sets of doubles. Swingweight was noticeably higher than my radical MP's. Really nice feel upon impact and super solid feeling with great plow. My only question will be is the sw too much for me? I have to use it exclusively for...

    Quick demo review of 2021 Radical MP

    Tried the 2021 Rad MP for one set last light and didn't see any noticeable difference to the Graphene XT version as of yet. Played very similarly to the XT with 4 grams at 3/9. Good thing about the 2021 version is it's probably fine stock with no added lead tape. Next time out, I will switch...

    Cheaper alternative to Asic's Resolution 8's?

    Anyone know of a show with similar fit and characteristics to the Resolution but at a lower cost? thanks

    Quick demo review of 2021 Radical MP

    Just got one of these and can't wait to try it out. I've been using a Graphene XT Rad MP the past week and loving it (with 4 g's at 3/9 & in the handle) so I'm eager to see if the 2021 MP is an improvement.

    Multifilament Mains and Polyester Crosses Playability

    I love this hybrid. Key is to use a round slippery poly and a quality multi that will last. If you don't hit with a lot of topspin, it can last quite a while. Solinco has a nice prepackaged one with Vanquish multi and Tour Bite poly. Tourbite is a square poly so it's not as ideal as a round...

    Head Graphene 360+ Speed Pro

    The black paint is definitely lighter through the air than that heavy white paint ;)

    Head Graphene 360+ Speed Pro

    OK thanks. Guess I'll keep looking for a used +360. Sounds great.

    Speed Pro long term users

    Are there any differences between the 360 and the +360 Speed Pro beside the higher swingweight? I can find used 360s for so much cheaper than +360's, which are nearly impossible to find under $200.

    Solinco Tour Bite / Vanquish Hybrid

    Anyone else like this prepackaged hybrid? It's a great value at $12 and I actually put the multi in the mains and they slide nicely along the tour bite crosses. Great feel, nice power without being too springy. Lasts pretty long too.
