    Memory Lane...What Racquet(s) were u using between 1985-1990?

    Apologies for the 12 year wait :) I noticed you had the Dunlop Borg racquet questioned by Breakpoint. Actually, there was a Dunlop Borg racquet, but I don't think it got past the demo stage and I doubt it was the one you were referring to. It's a neat bit of trivia though and hopefully this...

    Heavy racquets

    From my own experience, when I got back into the game after a long break, I went straight out and got a larger headed, lighter racquet, purely on the basis that the vast majority of racquets I was seeing were in that range. However, it was not until I got a smaller headed, heavier racquet that...

    TW needs to push a reissue of the Prince Classic Graphite 100 Longbody

    I've actually kept it with the ports, as I quite like them. It has quite a roundish head shape and with the ports it just feels like it opens it up a bit and gives me a bit more spin. That may all be psychological of course. As and when I need a re-string, I may try the standard grommets, but...

    TW needs to push a reissue of the Prince Classic Graphite 100 Longbody

    About 54 in the 100 and about 52 in the 93. I've got one of those tension apps on my phone. Not sure how accurate they really are but the strings hold their tension pretty well.

    TW needs to push a reissue of the Prince Classic Graphite 100 Longbody

    I've got 6 HM300g's as well, plus spare grommets. I don't use them anymore but won't get rid of them.

    TW needs to push a reissue of the Prince Classic Graphite 100 Longbody

    I've stuck with Prince Syngut original for that reason. Keeps tension for ages.

    TW needs to push a reissue of the Prince Classic Graphite 100 Longbody

    I have 2 PCG 100 std and 2 Exo3 Graphite 93s that occupy my racquet bag. I've tried other racquets but keep going back to these as they suit me the best. When I first got them I stocked up on grommet sets. All strung with PSGO and that works perfectly for a classic feel. Great racquets and it...

    Prince Phantom 93P 14x18 vs 18x20... let's discuss.

    I've been using the Exo3 93 for years, which is almost identical in spec to the Phantom 93, but has the string pattern sitting between the two at 16\18. I find this string pattern to be perfect for the 93 head size, so I hope the powers that be do produce a Phantom in that string pattern. I...

    Stringbed Question, 16/19 v 18/20

    I'm really happy with the feel of the Blade 98. I've tried a few racquets and this gives me the best feel and comfort I like in a racquet. I was just curious about string spacing around the centre of the stringbed on the 16/19 and 18/20, but if the differences are extremely minimal, I'm more...

    Stringbed Question, 16/19 v 18/20

    Thanks for these responses. Pretty much confirmation that its more me, just needing to get used to it. I'm finding the comfort, control and low power feel with the 18/20 really. Certainly the most comfortable racquet I've used and that's coming from previously using Prince racquets and older...

    Thank you very much for your reply, it's very much appreciated.

    Stringbed Question, 16/19 v 18/20

    Has anyone ever compared the string spacing of the 16/19 and 18/20 Wilson Blade, around the centre of the stringbed? Is there much in the way of larger spacing around that area on the 16/19? Unfortunately I don't have access to a 16/19 to compare myself. I'm enjoying the 18/20 on my OHBH, but I...

    Is anyone using syn gut in a CV 18/20? If so, what sort of tensions are you stringing at?
