6hrs into playing @ 48lbs and still excellent control on the serve, returns and mid-court ball which seem to be the test for my game in terms of control. That’s with an OEHMS string. Pearl Rough 1.25
T1:BK @ 47 or 48 should be business.
Wow, that is the deal @ 48lbs. Killing it still under control. Heavy spin, good feel. Volleys, serve, return of serve, attacking the mid court ball, all under control. Hitting the ball on the full run still has a serious pay off. I’m a believer.
Initially used Alu Power @ 52 which was awesome. Trouble is it bags out in a few hours and used the last on a reel. Too expensive to go through strings every few hours. Went T1 BK @ 50 and felt too muted. My Prestige’s are all strung with BK @ 48 or 49 and play wicked. Super heavy ball.
Looking for some of these now. Have (3) new ones and two that I used quite a bit when I played with these frames. Would like to replace the grommets and bumper guards on those (2) but can’t find any at the moment.
Nice to see someone moving their feet. Your game has Blade written all over it. Blade Pro if you want to spend a bit more or Blade V7. 16x19 would be my choice. Your forehand would be fine with 18x20 but with the rest of your game the 18x20 could be quite demanding.
Going to give it another go at a lower tension with the Blade Pro and see how it goes. Not sure if is just that I am more accustomed to the Prestige Mid than the Blade Pro but my level of play is obviously higher with the Prestige. One of kids from Belarus that I hit with said you need to play...
