I prefer the Price TT 310 over the speed for a few reasons:
1. the launch angle is lower (weird despite open pattern)
2. It swings faster for me and yet feels more stable somehow
3. My regular hitting partners told me my ball speed and spin is much better with the prince.
My main takeaway is I...
I have found the 16g polys work better than the 17g because of the more open pattern. So far Lynx Tour 1.30 is pretty good, but would like more feel/pocketing. Will be testing more in the coming months.
I have switched to the 310 after 6 months of looking for a replacement frame. I used an old Wilson Ncode until it broke 3 years ago, then got the pure strike, but after a year with the strikes I got sick of the mushy feeling the babolat and the stiffness. So i went to the VCP97 310 with lead...
Yeah I wish they would get the PhantomX paint for example, but at the end of the day I don’t care. The stick plays so well - I just added 3 grams at 12 to up the swing weight a tad and it’s great. Maybe I’ll add a leather grip in the future but we’ll see.
You should get a topspin backhand before you think about what racquet to switch to. I’ve found racquets are differently suited to the backhand vs the forehand. So before you do any switching you should get out and drill so make sure you are solid
So I’ve been in the racquet wasteland since I started playing again, switching frames twice in 4 years. I’ve been demoing trying to find the right fit as my vcp310 wasn’t cutting it for power or stability. I have demoed every racquet on the market it feels like and decided to give this fugly...
