    I've got about 1.5 inches on either side of the string bed at 10 and 2 going from the 6th cross string up to about the 3rd cross string from the top.

    What's the total static weight now with all your modifications (leather grip, lead, OG)? By the way, tried some lead at 10 and 2 (on my 310 version) and really noticed a difference (positive) in stability and plow-through. Only used about 1.5 grams and still felt a pretty substantial...

    Good stuff. Seems like folks on this thread are all over the place in terms of leading the 310 up, from none at all (quite a few in this boat), to lead at 12, 3 and 9 and handle. Obviously, owner preferences at play here but curious what your experience has been. Just received my new 310...

    Curious, what strings/tension are you using with the gut/poly?

    Good call. Will keep the WCSS around but may try out some RSL as well. From what you guys have experienced, sounds like a nice string, full bed or in a hybrid. Any thoughts on tension? Dropping from a 100 to 97 with 8 mains, might go a little lower than my usual 55/52?

    Been using a gut/poly hybrid with gut in the mains and WCSS in the crosses, primarily in my Angell TC100. Fairly happy with the comfort and feel, but sometimes too much power with the gut and the somewhat higher trajectory of the TC100. The VCP 97 helps address my desire for a more...

    Thanks, guys; much appreciated. Fun string testing ahead!

    Just demo'd this racquet and in a weird way, glad to hear there are better strings out there for this than Velocity as the demo was strung with it and while I didn't really care for the string that much, absolutely fell in love with this racquet. Just checked all the boxes: superb feel, the...

    I have demos of both arriving hopefully tomorrow. Curious what your pros/cons were of the 100 compared to the 97.

    Diary of a Racketaholic

    As always, on the money PP; thanks for the input and just what I needed to hear. I used to play with the Xi98 and quite enjoyed that racquet; not quite sure why I sold it. More or less jumped on the Angell bandwagon and have been playing with the TC100 for a while now. Like the stick but...

    Diary of a Racketaholic

    Submitted this in the VCP thread as well, but appreciate the input from the folks here as well in case you don't look at the VCP thread much. This racquet sounds right in my wheelhouse on specs except that it's a bit smaller head size (though not much, really, right?) from my current TC 100...

    This racquet sounds right in my wheelhouse on specs except that it's a bit smaller head size (though not much, really, right?) from my current TC 100. Thoughts on this? Does the VCP 97 play "bigger" than its spec? I know there's a VCP 100 and the common thinking is that 100's provide a little...

    Questions about Polarized & Depolarized set-ups

    Question: how long are your strips and I assume centered exactly at 3/9? Also, are you putting strips on each side of the stringbed at 3 and same at 9? Or just one strip at 3, one at 9, on opposite sides of the stringbed? I've seen both (TW's video on using lead at 3/9 suggests the latter).

    Is the head shape of the ASL3 similar or different than the TC100? Any thoughts yet on serve comparison between the two?

    For those who have played the 100 at both the 63 and 70 RA, and all things being relatively equal (weight, balance, etc.), does the 70RA appear to have a lower launch angle than the 63? Any other obvious pros/cons?
