    Is it possible to match a lite model to standard model specs and expect the two to play identical

    Might be right with “weight in the handle theory” but given that many lite versions are not simply 30g lighter, accordingly head heavy (to the fact all the weight is in the handle) frames, I generally stand by my opinion (which might easily be wrong). Regarding lead and feel...if two couples of...

    Second that. Can’t imagine a scenario where you could match the feel of 30-40g of graphite with leadtape and silicone. And if you can’t replicate feel, it’s not identical match frame even if specs might be. You might create a good frame on its own, though. Beside this theory, I’ve tried it myself.

    What will 2019 Wimbledon FEDAL match be?

    They’re not hopes, they’re observations. Couldn’t care less who wins what.

    What will 2019 Wimbledon FEDAL match be?

    Feds serve is not about Rafa, it’s about Fed. If serve is clicking then everything else is (more often than not) clicking too. Wimby grass might be slower and bounce higher but it’s still no clay. Plus Fed beat Rafa four(?) times in a row before RG semi...quite obvious who should be more...

    What will 2019 Wimbledon FEDAL match be?

    If Roger’s serve is on then he’s the favourite. If weather is bad and roof is closed then Rafa’s chances are slim.

    dunlop biomimetic 300 tour club

    Not sure about the mold to be honest. Read somewhere around here that Bio 300T has a special one... I prefer Bio 300T hands down, albeit with quite a lot of lead. Feels a lot sweeter than 4D 300T. Strange enough I liked 4D200 and 4D100 very, very much. 300T is special, though.

    dunlop biomimetic 300 tour club

    Aerogel 4D 300 Tour and Biomimetic 300 Tour are quite different. Mold most probably too, but feel is a lot different. And yes, that’s the F300 Classic we were talking about. Prefer the Bio 300Tour paint but this one is nice, too.

    It isn’t far at all, because as far as I can remember, they feel/play identical. I wouldn’t hesitate.

    Best current racquet for 1 hander with comfortable grip shape

    If you want to stick with 18x20 pattern, I believe Srixon/Dunlop has some pretty good platform sticks in their offering. I play with Yonex Tour G330 and it’s great for one handers but it might be the same case as RF97 in terms of maneuverability.

    Pacific Replacement for Fischer MSpeed Pro No 1 98 help?

    Fair enough, although I can think of a (quite a ) few frames that can feel more different than those two.

    Fischer Pro 1 in a modern racquet?

    + 1 for Yonex DR98. You won’t find anything out there that has the same sweet “ceramic” crispness to it (never tried Pacific, though). DR98 is a great all round frame on its own account.

    Any 5.0 Players Switch From Players Frame to Babolat and Get Even Better?

    I tail-weighted my first ever frame (super light, super thick Wilson K Rush FX) with some weight at the tip to make it nicely polarized and it’s a great frame to play around with. I still use Tour G 330 most of the time but after a three hour clay court session, I feel like boiled cr@p. After...

    If you can handle a heavier racquet, is there any benefit to a lighter frame?

    If you’re after the cause of the pain, you’ll have to detect what changed/changes (string, tension, weather conditions, your stroke path when you tire, etc...). If you’re after benefits of heavier, head light setup vs lighter one, you’ll have to identify what is it that’s missing, what you’re...

    If you can handle a heavier racquet, is there any benefit to a lighter frame?

    Another factor is weight distribution and how it compliments ones playing style. Rafa most certainly could swing a much heavier frame, it just wouldn’t help him play better. His style is better suited to lighter, more head heavy setups rather than traditional players specs.
