    Which current Head Graphene 360+ Racket feels most like a Wilson Blade 98 v7

    ^ I second this. The Head Speed racquets did not feel similar to v7 to me in the plush department. Speed felt stiffer and with a more direct response. Tried both the MP and the Pro. Still great racquets though. I have been playing with a Blade v7 and slowly transitioning to a TF40 305, but if...

    Hyper G Question

    Great to hear that Hyper-G works well on blade v7. I was going to try 1.20mm gauge at 50-52 lbs at some point. I've tried a similar-looking string Signum Pro X-Perience 1.24mm (stiffer than Hyper-G 1.20) at 52 lbs but it felt more muted and more controlled than Hyper-G 1.20. Couldn't quite get...

    What string for Blade v7 16x19?

    I have tried the following strings on the Blade v7 16x19 so far: - Volkl Cyclone main + Wilson Revolve crosses (tension unknown; probably ~50 or 52 lbs): this was a great combination that provided great spin and a crisp but comfortable feel that worked well with the Blade. Didn't last long...

    TWU: Numbers on RPM Power

    Hi, Is there any plan to measure and post the string property of RPM Power in TW University? Would love to see how it compares to other strings. Thanks! Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk

    Yonex DR98 alternative

    After reading through the OP again, just thought of what might work. Prince Phantom 100x 305. 100-inch head size, arguably better comfort on off-center shots, similar buttery feel, lower-powered than DR98. The phantom has a slightly higher launch angle, but it shouldn't be too bad.

    To Erik: Wilson Blade v7 16x19 vs Phantom 100x 305

    I think the phantom won't help much if your balls are landing short with the blade v7. I found the phantom to be lower powered than the blade in stock form. By "more plow", it would mean there is more mass behind the ball when you are hitting through the ball with the racquet. It could mean more...

    Yonex DR98 alternative

    TT310 had more power and spin than the DR98. DR98 had more plow, control, and touch. Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk

    Yonex DR98 alternative

    My experience with the DR98 was that it can be a bit harsh on the arm/wrist off-center even though the racquet is very plush overall. I had to move away from it, play with an arguably more evenly-comfortable TT310, and it was great comfort-wise but I didn't get the same control and precise touch...

    String recommendation for Wilson Blade 98 V7 16x19

    Has anyone tried signum pro x-perience on the blade? I wonder if the softness of the string would make the contact feel too mushy. I only tried cyclone mains + revolve crosses which was great for the first two weeks, then it started to go dead and put more strain on my shoulders. My usual go-to...

    Prince Textreme Tour vs. Wilson Blade (v7)

    TT310 gives you more spin and a tad bit more free power, while the blade v7 16x19 gives you more control, more plow, and that buttery feel on contact. I switched from a TT310 to a blade and my opponents tell me that it produces a heavier ball. I do need some extra effort to get depth on my...

    Prince Textreme Tour 100 (310) Thread

    I've switched from a TT310 to a Blade v7 16x19. I think the standout feature of TT310 is spin and comfort, along with a large sweetspot. The blade offers more control and a flexier feel. I feel like it was easier to play with the TT310, but I like the extra control that I get with the Blade, and...

    Volkl Cyclone Mains, what string in the cross?

    Try Yonex Poly Tour Spin suggested above as a full bed, or try Rs Lyon or Luxilon 4G if you need a round poly that would work in the crosses that is low powered. But if you're stringing 59 lbs+ and feel like a full poly is too lively, maybe it's time to try out lower power racquets. Sent from...
