    Prince Official - Racquets

    I own a Textreme Tour 310, Beast 98 and Beast O3 98. They are all great sticks but my preference is for the Tour 310. The main difference for me is the feel. I like the Tour 310's feel, control, and spin. The racquets all play great and I can trust them all in match play but the better feel is...

    Prince Textreme Tour 100 (310) Thread

    Has anyone played with this 310 and the phantom pro 100p? I wonder how the two compare and which one was preferred.

    New firewire fan!

    What is wrong with being too aggressively shaped? Too much spin?

    Thanks for the reply, saved me some time from my gut hybrid. I was already getting plenty of power on my full poly and this confirms it for me. Thanks for the comparison, so it looks like Firewire Boost is your second favorite setup behind 4G soft? Did you get more spin with the Firewire Boost...

    How are you liking the setup? Are you able to compare it with any other poly setups you've had in this frame?

    I received a sample pack of the 16 gauge FireWire boost so they definitely exist and it's why I asked about them.

    Are you using 16gauge version of FireWire boost? Have you tried other full poly setups in this racquet to compare? I am curious if this setup is too thick for the tighter 16x18 center and if the spin is noticeably better than 17g poly like proline2 and max power.

    Between these three setups which did you prefer? Could you please compare them for me? Was the gut/poly hard to control or lacking in spin vs. The other two. I am using full poly Kirsch max power 17g at 48lbs and interested in trying gut hybrid but don't want everything to sail. Thanks!

    Has anyone used the Beast 100 and know how it compares with the TT310? It see me similarly specced with more stiffness and one more cross. Looks appealing at its price point.

    Why is there a trend towards dampening feel?

    I wish manufacturers would stop this trend. I am not a fan of the dampened feel and don't know many who are either. A lot of the newer TW video racquet reviews complain about feeling disconnected from the ball on contact.

    Why is there a trend towards dampening feel?

    Does dampening feel actually help with stiffness? My understanding is 70 stiffness in two frames are going to have the same effect on your elbow regardless of dampening material.

    Why is there a trend towards dampening feel?

    I have the pre-cortex pure drive and aeropro and every generation since then has added another dampening technology from cortex to dampened materials. Wilson has countervail and it's been a general trend for most companies to go for a dampened feel. Does anyone enjoy the dampened feel more? Is...
