    Head Velocity

    While your elbowis in pain, I would go with the softest setup you can tolerate. Also would recommend a flexbar, not to mention medical advice. Once elbow pain really sets in, it can take an annoyingly long time to get over it. I may ask, why transitioning from dr 98 to 100? If power was the...

    Head Velocity

    i have only used cream and yptp, but velocity is significantly softer than either and a little harder to control, though certainly not a rocket launcher. based on my experience with cream, which is one of the softest polys, multis and polys do not have any overlap. if your arm hurts or you do...

    length added by different butt caps

    I recently switched out the buttcap on an old rebel 95 to the current green one sold by tw so I could use the trap door , and it is now a few mm longer than my other one. I made sure it is flush with the foam pallet. Got me wondering if there are slightly longer and shorter butt caps currently...

    yes if you are not a string breaker and want to keep it in your racquet for a long time

    NRG2 16 - weight and SW addition ?

    perhaps reading carefully is not your strong suit, or perhaps or you have been trolling throughout this thread. I am assuming it is the latter, but I guess we will never know. . .

    NRG2 16 - weight and SW addition ?

    (assuming your comments were made in earnest) @Happi mentioned a 10-point SW difference. That is equivalent to 3 grams added at 12 o'clock. If you are already playing close to your comfortable SW limit, 10 more points can make the difference between a racquet you can play well with over 3 sets...

    Hey Prince! Reissue the exo3 rebel 95 please!!

    I have a Japanese-spec(310g unstrung; flexy) 2008 (more ambitious paintjob) and a standard-spec 2012(yellow). The 2008 is weighted up to a little over 340g strung with ~ 330 sw. I think the usa/europe 2008 model was even heavier with a higher sw.

    NRG2 16 - weight and SW addition ?

    I also found Isospeed control and professional classic to be light(I think it was ~12-13g last time I measured). I was initially surprised because tennis industry mag's playtest(http://www.tennisindustrymag.com/articles/2007/11/isospeed_professional_classic.html) had listed professional as...

    Hey Prince! Reissue the exo3 rebel 95 please!!

    Though I like the rebel enough to know I would buy a couple reissues, I can only plead ignorance on the hybrid tour - did it have a similarly flexy beam? specs look fairly similar otherwise.

    Hey Prince! Reissue the exo3 rebel 95 please!!

    for me, the feel of the oports combined with the 18x20 pattern , head shape, and flex on the 95 feels just right, but the 98 also looks like a great racquet. It would be nice to have a more user friendly but similar feeling racquet in the bag for times when I run out of steam.

    Hey Prince! Reissue the exo3 rebel 95 please!!

    This is such a great feeling and unique frame, and becoming hard to find in good condition. I really like my ats 95, but the rebel is on another level. If you can reissue the diablo and synergy, could you do this one too?? If it is not too much to ask, could you make it gloss black with black...
