    They were light ones, like team versions that were crap compared to real six ones. This thing you guys are hitting seems way closer in DNA to real six ones. But I really don’t know enough, my fault for not buying one from the point. My PK infatuation keeps me happy tho’ so I’ll wait and see...

    That Exclusive!!!! Marketing thing the point was doing planted that in my head. But that doesn’t explain how the pro thing got some, maybe they know each other and made a deal. Who knows. I hope this isn’t it and the test market idea is right….or we won’t see it in the US. Which is why I’ve...

    I just really hope Wilson isn’t experimenting with licensing , and this only happened because of a distributor executing it. That would suck hard core. But I greatly suspect this….

    Yeah I really like alpha in the doppio. It stays good until close to breaking also, you’ll be impressed. It looks good in it too on a stupid note- I tweaked my left knee a little last night. Pretty pissed about this. Curse of this thread I guess. I’m not even sure what I did, was playing...

    Interesting. Mine unstrung was either 2 or 3 points HL, which I think is like 33.9cm. Yours is definitely more HL than mine, I’m guessing the shock shield added 10 or 11 grams vs. your leather adding 7.6. Which is you’ll probably end up at 329 or so where I’m 333 with close to the same...

    I did a shock shield as I didn't have a leather around and had one SS. I can use leather or SS interchangeably, i'm a weirdo, since I use an overgrip anyway. The SS smashes down and I just don't have a preference on bevel feel (slightly sharper or a little softer), I can find my grips just as...

    oh man, that does sound great. ok, i take it all back, if they release in the US I'll get one immediately. damn you Wilson, naming it a six one is just unfair.

    You should still pick one up, if you can. It’s really an interesting compare. Unless you already have 3 BL’s. The Clash 98, i can’t explain. Lol..... ‘holic stupid. And who am i kidding? That same impulse would buy a Euro if Wilson gets their s*** together.

    If you had a home machine, I would just say cut it out right now and restring with something you like. Xcel just will waste your time in that frame, you won't get to feel the subtle difference between the Dope and the Banana Lite. Sucks though to have to pay someone to string it for you...

    I didn't even check it, but since it was 299 unstrung, maybe 318? 317? So with OG that would be right. I ripped the grip off as I didn't want to waste an overgrip at only a few points HL, I knew I had to mod it.

    I did TS mains with Cream crosses, 53/51. I am liking that in the Doppio so wanted a simple compare. The BL is slightly less whippy, but only a little, so you only notice it for a few balls. That could also be ‘fixed’ if you wanted, by placing more weight lower on the handle, but I like...

    @PP is right. The Q+5 Pro is fantastic and the new Q+5 with a grip change is very close to the previous pro. With the grip change, static weight is very similar, with the new 5 being slightly more SW , more plush, a bit more pop. They are both stellar frames, I’m not sure which I prefer...

    It was more stupid than you realize. I hit with a buddies after a fun match, i was really grooving, he hit my Doppio and me his 98, later at dinner and 4 glasses of wine and I ‘save 25%’ by ordering one in blue. Sigh....
