    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...

    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...

    Has anyone ever compared the string spacing of the 16/19 and 18/20 versions, around the centre of the stringbed? Is there much in the way of larger spacing around that area?

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

    Thickest Replacement Grip

    Just a bit of a way out thought really, but some bike handlebar tape is pretty thick and is similar in its construction to racquet grip tape. I've seen some handlebar tape at 2.5, 3.2 and 4.5mm thick. If you use an overgrip, it might be worth seeing if wrapping handlebar tape as your base grip...

    50th Anniversary of Elvis Presley's 1968 Comeback Special

    That's a shame. The last of the original quartet. I believe TCB band members James Burton and Ronnie Tutt are still going though.

    50th Anniversary of Elvis Presley's 1968 Comeback Special

    Great tribute idea. Also quite a revolutionary moment for Elvis. About the first time he put his foot down and went against Col.Parker's instructions. As you probably know, Parker wanted a chunky jumper, Christmas show with twee Christmas songs. Elvis said "No".

    Prince Phantom

    Thank you for this. Concise and to the point, just what I wanted. I've never heard the PCG100 described as not being comfortable and I find mine very comfortable (and I did previously have an arm injury, unrelated to tennis), but I know what you mean. With the flex and ports, the Phantom...

    Prince Phantom

    I look forward to that :) On paper, there seems to be a lot of similarities. Similar weight, same head, same string pattern, thin beam. The only differences are the stiffness on the PCG at 62 (which is hardly overly stiff) and no ports. I'm tempted by the Phantom, I'm just not sure how...

    I don't know, but my guess is that the Phantom fills a gap in their range. They currently have TT Tour 100P that is a similar weight, with an 18/20 pattern. The current range of 'Tours' with the 16/18 are fairly light in comparison, so the Phantom kind of fills that void a bit.

    Has anyone compared the Phantom to the PCG100 yet?

    Prince Phantom

    If you don't want something similar and you don't want something different, what would you want? That doesn't make sense to me. Surely the choice for an alternative racquet is something similar to what you have or something different. FYI the Phantom is not like the Warrior. The TT Warrior...
