    Any Prince Phantom 100G Comparisons to the PCG 100 (or LB versions)

    That's very strange that the 100p would feel like a rocket launcher compared to the 100lb since the specs seem similar between the two with the 100lb having the extra inch being the main difference. I'm thinking the demo strings may be playing a big part in it.

    Any way to know if your old racquet is still solid?

    Just go play with them. I'm sure they're fine. Racquets are tough as long as you don't smash them.

    Swiatek...countdown to racquet change

    I meant I didn't care if Swiatek moves on from Prince for big sponsorship money. Not that there is no interest from others in who will be her next suitor. I think we're actually in agreement on a few points. Just different execution. I want to see Prince prosper too. But I don't consider...

    Maybe a difficult request: more power AND arm friendly

    Comfort in a racquet means lower stiffness. More power needs higher stiffness or higher swing weight. So in this instance I think you're looking for a flexible racquet with a higher swing weight. Assuming the increased weight does not slow down your swing too much.

    Prince Phantom Pro 100p vs Prince Phantom 100p

    I think it's the best of both worlds. The thin beam helps with touch and feel. The feedback from the thin beam flexing is allowing me to have confidence in my volleys that I would not have with a thick beam stiff racquet. While a thin beam is a drain to power, the racquet has plenty of...

    Swiatek...countdown to racquet change

    Why is that a problem? Because you think Prince will go into bankruptcy from a lack of sales? Prince had a major sponsorship deal with Sharapova at one point and that didn't save their brand from bankruptcy. How do you know with certainty that signing Swiatek will propel the Prince brand's sales...

    Prince Phantom Pro 100p vs Prince Phantom 100p

    I have a lot of frames. Phantom 100P is my clear favorite. So much spin, power, and control. Comfort allows me to go full poly and swing away without fear of feeling jarring to my wrist or elbow. I love the flex feel but I know it's not for everyone. The racquet with its solid feel and...

    Swiatek...countdown to racquet change

    I honestly don't care. I didn't buy my Prince racquets because Swiatek or Isner use the brand. I couldn't care less what they use because everyone's technique and physical abilities are different. What works for 7 foot tall Isner has no relevance to me. I rather Prince focus on making good...

    How often should I change a racquet?

    You should not change your racquet. The last notable technology change is going from wood to graphite. Everything else is marketing.

    Any Prince Phantom 100G Comparisons to the PCG 100 (or LB versions)

    Does anyone have any experience with the Phantom 100G LB? Currently using 2nd gen Phantom 100P so curious what an extended version of this stick would play like. No real complaints with the 100P just curious.

    Question for Prince Players . . .

    I really liked the power level on the 100p coming from the tt310. If you thought the 100p is already underpowered, why do you want it in a smaller head size? That usually means even less power like in the 97p.

    Authentic Wilson Blade 98 v7?

    Yeah it's Wilson QC. Between the misaligned decals, the randomized specs, and how their velvet paint that completely sheds its skin like a reptile, I've learned that the best thing to do is vote with my wallet and not buy Wilson. My last Wilson was an ultra tour that I bought direct from a legit...
