  • Dear Retrowagen

    I hope you’re well

    I’ve just found the Fischer Vacuum pro 90, and am loving it. I’ve read a lot of Fischer threads and I’ve seen your helpful comments. I’m now trying to find twin tech pro specs; could you help me out? And, the twin tec pro hitting experience compared to the vacuum pro 90?

    Thanks so much.

    Hello, I don’t have any measured stiffness or swing weight specs for the old Vacuum Twin Tec, sorry. The midplus (98 square inch) Vacuum Twin Tec of 1990-1992 was fairly stiff as a semi-widebody design, but Fischer engineers were careful to tune it to a level that was not too arm-unfriendly. My “production” 1991 specimens were all around 345g strung weight and 6 points head light.

    Thanks so much! That’s really helpful - usually you can find all sorts on the internet but I’ve hunted high and low for these. I’ve just bought a twin tec Steeb racquet so hopefully it arrives safely. I’m tempted with a purple one I’ve found too - I saw you’ve both in previous TT posts. Do you prefer one? I’m coming from old Head racquets which I think are amazing
    Dear Retrowagen, did you find any substitution of fischer elliptic grommets?
    Any help will be highly appreciated.

    Best Regards,

    Yasen

    No, I am sorry, but it seems that nothing is available, and no other racquet shares the same grommets as the Fischer Elliptic.
    Hi Retrowagen, your love for old Fischers is so contagious I'm trying to start a collection myself. Someone offered me a purple 'Elliptic Ceramics' (says 'graphite performance' underneath) with neon lime grommet in a good condition (not sure if it's made in Austria) - do you happen to know the weight, SW, balance etc.? I've read all the posts on Fischers but this is the one thing I couldn't find.

    Hello! There were evidently a number of various “special make-up” model variants made from the mold, for different retailers and distributors. I don’t compile SW data, but the stock weight should be expected to be around 11.2-12.2 ounces, strung, and balance always seems to measure around 5-7 points headlight, depending on the layup.
    Enjoy your racquets!
