    HEAD G360 Extreme

    This tells the story of tweaking the frame to get it like he wanted https://tennisworld.typepad.com/tennisworld/2008/03/if-you-go-to-th.html

    Roman Prokes Under Review Podcast Interview

    Thanks for the kind words on your post directly above. I don't want to come off as a "light is the only way to go" guy. Racquet choice at any level is an individual thing, and there will always be those who buck the current trend. Yours sounds like an awesome setup, it's the sort of thing I'd...

    I guess I have paid too much attention to a few flat-earthers on the boards. BTW, dr325i, I always appreciate your expertise about pro stocks.

    Roman Prokes Under Review Podcast Interview

    Your statements about 340 not being light are accurate. However, there are many posters here and in the Raquets forum who claim that A) a racquet with less than a 12 ounce static weight, and a 350 SW is a fragile toy and can't be used at the 4.5 level and above; and B) That no pro has ever...

    Roman Prokes Under Review Podcast Interview

    As cyanide43 reported https://tt.tennis-warehouse.com/index.php?threads/yoshihito-nishioka-racket.568399/page-2#post-13325921, these nextgen guys are usually between 332-343, not the 350-375 of earlier generations that generated all the SW1 and SW2 posts on these boards. I'm not sure the SW of...

    Roman Prokes Under Review Podcast Interview

    Fritz using an 11 ounce strung racket! Hilarious that so many here say they need a 13 ounce, 375 SW frame to handle the pace they run into at their local club. And, no, Fritz is not using a Moya type balance - a friend of mine strung for him at a Challenger and his frames were near even balanced...

    Tecnifibre TFlash PS 300: GREAT racquet indeed. My review.

    Extreme 360 has less power than the Tec, or PD or APD, but still has good pop and really plush feel with no jarring on impact. Head has a winner here!

    Diary of a Racketaholic

    Any thought of going back to the Prince for a while? That would be as kind as can be to the shoulder!

    Tecnifibre TFlash PS 300: GREAT racquet indeed. My review.

    My switch to the Tec PS reported above only lasted a couple months, I started finding it harsh, too. I have picked up a 360 Extreme MP and am looking forward to hitting it tomorrow. Strung with Black Code 18 @ 48, for an apples to apples comparison.

    Yoshihito Nishioka racket

    He had that 332 SW with his old frame, too. Since the Tec XTC 305 retail SW is 329, I'm guessing he has a light prostock version that is modded to the same specs as retail, as smalahove points out. My point regarding specs is that not all pros play with a 350 SW (Verdasco was well below that at...

    Guga Kuerten no replacement grip

    Don Budge used a 16 ounce racquet with a bare wood handle, also with a 4 7/8 grip. See A Terrible Splendor, by Marshall Jon Fisher, page 11, for some interesting talk about frame choices of the 1930's players.

    New Miami Open Venue vs Old

    Good point. As I said, if they keep it at all. I would prefer a grass court Masters replace Miami, and use the opening Miami would leave to tweak the schedule. I know this is very unlikely...

    New Miami Open Venue vs Old

    Time to make this tournament, if they keep it at all, the start of the clay court season. No need for another HC event after IW. Plenty of U.S. sites, including some in Florida, that could do this.
