    The TC100...oops, that’s an Angel ;)

    What’s the worlds most powerful poly string?

    A couple that come to mind are Kirschbaum Proline Evolution and Isospeed cream

    The Beast series sits In a very competitive space. It’s probably not possible to compete with the marketing budgets of Wilson, Babolat, etc, so you need to find someway to differentiate the Beast from the competition in that market segment. You need to meet customer needs better than the...

    I wish that I knew this 10 years ago...what a shame ;)

    That certainly helps to explain some of the confusion that I have experienced testing rackets with similar RA (and other specs) that feel significantly different. Anything with babolat written on it comes to mind.

    General consensus: Yes or no to clash V2?

    Basically I want the Clash 100 and Blade V7 to have a baby (The Wilson Bash) Clash has the spin & power (without the hefty swing weight) is more headlight, whippy and easier to handle. Blade has the control, a thinner beam, feels sublime on ground strokes, and both are exceptionally comfortable...

    Same with me. I tried a few but but still preferred the factory string - lynx 17 so put some of that back in - happy days (y)

    Tell me about it...only a couple of hours ago I needed to add weight to a Tecnifibre racket. It involved taking off the grip and butt cap, and performing calculations in advance so that I didn't have to do it again to fine-tune the adjustments. It was such a pain. I found it interesting that...

    That's because the overwhelming majority of tennis players are not interested in the stuff that we are...if Prince implement all of our ideas, we would end up with the Tennis equivalent of the Homer Simpson Car and Prince would end up broke.

    Sorry, I omitted an important point - the DR98 wasn’t sold as an extended length racket. It’s specs were 27” vs the 27.25 that each of mine measured. I understand where you are coming from...often people won’t even consider an extended length racket. Another important consideration for you...

    Such a simple thing to implement that shows a focus on what customers want.

    I’m thinking of buying the tour.

    Head Gravity

    I I think that my Gravity Pro matches my DR for control, beats it for feel, and punishes me if I get lazy with my technique. I’m finding that I’m playing better with my other rackets after playing with my Gravity Pro because it forces me to focus more on my technique. But when I am executing...

    I have been thinking of a few suggestions that may (or may not) help: I think a bit more consistency to stated specs in the manufacturing process would be well received. I bought my 2 Prince TT100 (310) a couple of months apart and there was a noticeable variance in swing weight. Don't get me...

    Yes, my assumption is that I could lower the launch angle slightly by increasing the string density through the middle mains. I'm not even sure that I would prefer this setup...I mean there's always a tradeoff :)

    At one stage, I owned 4 Yonex DR98s. They were all 27.25". I often wonder if this had something to do with the popularity of this racket?

    Welcome to the board guys. I arrived at Prince after owning several rackets from Wilson, Babolat, Yonex, and Head. I just wanted to say how impressed I am with my TT100 (310) & TT100P rackets. The combination of power and feel is superb. I won't be going anywhere soon. I reckon that something...

    Gravity Tour: Good Comfort?

    I own the Gravity Pro and compared it with the blade V7 16x19 and clash 98 over the course of a week. Clash 98 feels nice but is a loose canon. Blade v7 feels beautiful on ground strokes but very sluggish on serves IMO. Gravity Pro has a great feel and is a more complete frame for me. The weight...

    Stringing soft poly on a drop weight?

    I actually tried this 2 days ago with 18 G Kirschbaum Xplosive, which I know to be soft and stretchy, and it turned out pretty well for me. Taking onboard everyones comments, I thoroughly cleaned clamps and gripper, started the bar from the horizontal, and ran the string 360 deg + round the...

    Stringing soft poly on a drop weight?

    I recently strung PLII 18G and it isn't stretchy at all. I didn't have this problem with it.

    Head Gravity

    I asked the same question on this forum a while back and those in the know told me lynx...they were correct. I bought some and strung my Gravity Pro with it and really like the way it plays with this string. That said, it's more important to get the tension right with a new racket. Otherwise...

    Stringing soft poly on a drop weight?

    This is exactly what happens...a soft poly ends up feeling like a dead poly that is strung about 10lbs to tight.

    Stringing soft poly on a drop weight?

    Thanks Irvin...I’m going around about 270 degrees and inserting string left to right. I will use 2 clamps for the crosses. Although the bar currently only drops slightly for mains and crosses. The string just appears to keep stretching so I’m going to pay closer attention to clean clamps and...

    Stringing soft poly on a drop weight?

    Gamma Progression II 602. Yes, I wrap around the string jaw before inserting into the gripper. I am using 1 clamp when stringing crosses (I use Floating Clamps). BTW...Merry Xmas everyone

    Your Gravity Pro string setup...

    Strung mine up with HyperG and it didn't feel as good as the factory string. Ended up purchasing the factory string (lynx I think it was) and that didn't feel as good as the original either. Strung it up once more with Lynx at a lower tension and it felt great. I'm not writing off any string...

    Anyone string 16/17 hybrid?

    And BTW, if your looking for something similar to your current rackets that won't hurt your arm, then you're looking for the Prince Textreme Tour 310. Has power, enough control...just a really solid all rounder. I played with similar rackets to yourself, got TE and really struggled to get rid...

    Stringing soft poly on a drop weight?

    I am starting the drop weight at 90 degrees (vertical) and lowering slowly, but I will start doing as per esgee48 suggested i.e., horizontal, then raise and rachet up. I will mark the string just to be sure, but this never happens with the stiffer strings, only the very soft. Although Velocity...

    Stringing soft poly on a drop weight?

    Happens with a few softer strings including the new Kirschbaum xplosive, a few of the soft volkl polys incl cyclone tour & v-star, ashaway momogut zx, velocity... Tension is around 50...nothing extreme. Gripper & clamps are clean also. I just assumed this was common and so most drop weight...

    Stringing soft poly on a drop weight?

    I’m having trouble stringing soft polys on my drop weight. The trouble is that the bar just keeps dropping as the string keeps stretching. If I wait too long then the soft poly plays a lot firmer as it‘s been stretched so much and probably lost some elasticity. Doesn‘t seem to matter even if I...
