tried the 2017 strike 18x20 and thought it was a better playing stick than any 18x20 blade i've tried including my 2015 blades. Feel is a completely different story. Would be using the 18x20 strike if it didnt immediately give me TE
I havent played with the 25A but played with the pro staff classic 6.1 many times. The 2017 (and the 2014) is the closest to the PSC in the entire line in terms of the clean, crisp feel. The PSC is still a bit stiffer and crisper, but the 2017 is as close as it gets.
Obligatory post. Where i live, you'd be a 3.5 at best.
also dont ask for tips where 99.9% of ppl are nowhere near your level. I can recommend you some good socks though. And the TW t-shirts are kinda nice.
the dampener was created by a former top 500 ATP player that markets primarily to the korean tennis community, but he also has all his products on Amazon. i'm not convinced by any of these devices, but he gives great tips and advice in his youtube videos in korean.
