    dlw doesn't mess around (excellent seller, trader)

    Real straight shooter. Frames were everything and more as he described!

    Decline of Prince?

    You make some interesting points but I feel like Prince is on the rebound and not in decline. No question that Prince has made a few mistakes along the way, particularly in the shoe department and I hear they went through a bit of a shoddy QC period for a few years as well. Just look at how many...

    Prince Beast 98

    Yeah that frame really intrigues me as I hear it's modeled after the Head Pro Tour 280. And Medvedev uses one and he's one of my faves on the tour. Seems like he gets plenty of easy power out of it. Don't tell me you're using straight poly in your frames. Seems like that's the trend. I know it...

    Decline of Prince?

    The Beast line is based on the Pure Drive according to the head of product development. It's an anomaly as it has a very low stiffness rating but is a modern frame - meaning high powered. Coming from the PT280 with an 18/20 string pattern, I couldn't believe all the extra spin and easy power I...

    Prince Beast 98

    So you're saying that the Beast 100 03 supplanted your Technifibre 315ltd? If so that's really saying something. These Beasts are nothing to sneeze at in the performance category. I went out today without my Beast 98s (arm pain) and just packin the one PT280 I still own and two recently...

    Prince Beast 98

    Probably the only thing left to do is get away from the hybrids as I'm about as low as I can go in the tension department with the hybrids. My hope is that the Donnays will be enough alike in feel that I can mix them into the rotation and just limit the time I spend playing the Beasts. Been...

    Prince Beast 98

    To a large extent, yes. Tennis is very hard on the muscles and joints of the body and probably particularly so as you get older. Most frames, stiff ones particularly will cause problems over time I believe. I guess I hoped that with the reasonably low RA, the Textreme and the Twaron this racket...

    Prince Beast 98

    Nothing but accolades concerning this frame from me so far, but the honeymoon is over and now I've developed an STD. Metaphorically speaking of course. Damn Beast has gone Beastly on my arm - wrist soreness, hand soreness and twinges in the shoulder. Thankfully no TE so far however. Not thinking...

    How I made my Super Redondo ...

    Seems like it would be more effective, a lot less risky and less time consuming just to shell out for a new Donnay. https://donnaytennis.com/

    unpopular opinion: Head's RECTANGULAR grip ****ty on forehands

    I hate squarish grips, but as I've recently moved away from my beloved 12+ oz Pro Tour 280s, I've found it very easy to add cushioned splicing tape to the racket's edge side, rewrap and have some seriously nice rectangular grips with easy to find bevels. This shape fits in my hand better, makes...

    Prince Beast 98

    I went from an 18/20 control player's frame to this tweener power frame and did experience a tiny adjustment period. This occurred because of the drop in weight and swing weight and the 16/20 string pattern. The Beast is just so touch sensitive that whatever I put on the ball takes in spades, so...

    Elbow Pain vs. Shoulder Pain - Help!

    As somebody that had to sit out the bulk of a season in Junior College and then lost an entire year to a rotator cuff injury a few years later, finding equipment that doesn't cause injury is always my top priority. I've never had so much as tennis elbow with any frame employing a super compound...
