    Head Graphene XT Speed MPA or Instinct XT MP

    Arli- what string are you using? I just had a demo strung with TB/vanquish. Feels great. Coming from a 99s full poly. This was a random demo for my wife and the more I hit it, the more I like it.

    Head speed mpa 16/16 vs steam 99s

    Let's discuss. Ive been steaming and just recently went to the head. Enjoying it. Won with it earlier this week. Another match tonight, used the head first set. Switched to steam after winning first set beauause I just didn't feel as confident with the mpa. Not totally used to it yet. Steam...

    Playing a 4.0 tourney this weekend.

    You're overthinking it and need to just have fun as an underdog. I won a consolation round 4.0 as a 2.5 once. Goal was to not get bageled and at some point got loose. Keep going at it and have fun. It's always better when it's fun. Funny thing is that's my favorite hardware I've won so far. I...

    Volkl pb9 (2) and Organix 10 295 (1)

    I have 3 volkls listed below, all bought brand new recently. The pb9s are 1/4 grip and the x10 is a 3/8. I have them listed separately but would make a deal for all 3. Also interested in trading for another steam 99S. Item Description (Brand/Model/Year) VOLKL POWER BRIDGE 9 Grip Size: 1/4...

    What is wrong with the Volkl Organix 9?

    How's the x9 compare to the pb9? I'm thoroughly enjoying this pb9.

    Do you play your rackets equally often or just your "main" racket?

    Would rotating be more risky. Say you have 2 and you rotate them equally, so strings are at the same life. If 1 pops, wouldn't the next one be at about the same place. So you break strings, then grab your other one and it breaks soon after.

    What is wrong with the Volkl Organix 9?

    Not sure why the pb9 didn't take off...this thing is great. Feels awesome. Plenty of power. It swings great. I think it's my new stick for the season.

    What's as good/reliable as supergrap but thicker?

    Been using yonex supergrap for a long time. I like it. I recently went from 3/8 down to 1/4 on some new racquets. I'd like to just use one OG. The yonex is allright but want slightly thicker.

    What is wrong with the Volkl Organix 9?

    I just received 2 brand new pb9s. Gonna give them a try. I've used the 7s a lot, have a x10 295 but didn't enjoy it. Most recently have been using steam 99s, will probably keep using the 99s but am trying out some sticks that don't require full poly. Found a deal that I couldn't pass up so...

    Happy New Year Racquetheads and a look back at 2014

    Kicking the year off, like my new x10 295 so far, found a sick deal on some new pb9s, should be here early next week. Can't seem to stop building up my Volkl stockpile.

    Happy New Year Racquetheads and a look back at 2014

    This year, in between my go-to pb7s I've had a 6.1 team, yonex ai98, pro staff 95S, donnay f100, then settled down with the steam 99s. Used the steam through the end of mixed season (made it to states), then for combo season (won states, heading to mobile in March). Got a new Volkl x10 295 in...

    The honeymoon is over....Tweener divorce!!!!!

    Not to sidebar the thread...but a quick question. Is ~330 a high swing weight? My 99s is about 330 grams and about 330 sw. It's nice and does great things but I think maybe the sw tires me out after awhile. I'm trying to figure this all out because I like the racquet, but I feel after awhile I...
