      any midplus racquets from before late 1990s that came with 18 mains thats NOT A dunlop 200, 6.1, prestige, radical? anything?

      relatives of 200s, 6.1s, prestiges, are acceptable

        curious more so about offerrings from obscure manufacturers such as browning/bard/wimbledon/wavex, or offerings from head, prince, and dunlop but any ones count. ie were there any wilson ultras that came in midplus with 18 mains? or maybe something from head that doesnt have the word prestige in the name.

        thanks a lot, really curious

        Crazy as it is...in looking through my collected 120+ racquets, I don't see even one from the 90s from non top brands that has 18 mains. Sorry!!!

      Hello! I noticed on one of your threads that you had the chance to play test Vcore duel g 97 (310g) and Wilson ProStaff 95S. Would you be so kind to make a short comparison between the two in terms of response, feel and control? I own a PS95S and I like it, the downside is it discontinued.
      Thanks alot and looking forward to your reply,
      Best of luck,

        At net again I like the Yonex better because of the larger sweetspot and slightly better maneuverability.

        But if I had to play Fed with one of the two I'd use the 95S.

      Are you still looking for a Prince CTS Approach 90? I have the Approach 90 and the Approach Midplus (the model afterwards, which is basically the same racquet).

        Thanks for keeping me in mind!!! I made the switch over to the Pure Strike when I couldn't find another Approach 90. But to be honest I haven't played tennis in over 3 months. Went to cycling and my knee is thankful. Again, I appreciate you keeping me in mind!!

        No prob. Swimming is a good low impact workout, too.

      Hey what racquet do you use now? I know you were looking at the PCG 100 and the Textreme Tour 95, what did you think between those two? I'm stuck on the fence.

        To be honest I'm used a Prince CTS Approach 90 from 1988. Plays solid, amazing spin, good power, and better than average control. Of the two you mention I liked the PCG 100 a bit better...I had better control (felt I could feel the ball on the strings better) and more spin.

        Not as soft or solid feeling as the Textreme but I had better results. I actually liked the Textreme 100 (the Orange one) better than both of these. Hope this helps some!
