    The Prince Phantom 93P is a gift to us from TW - My Review/AMA

    yes true, never played with such an open string pattern, could it be a bit too extreme in the opposite direction with no control at all. maybe not if the head size is 93

    The Prince Phantom 93P is a gift to us from TW - My Review/AMA

    thanks for your inputs! have always been tempted to try. demoed TT95 a while ago and the launch angle on that felt very high (which i liked). ended up not buying for some other reason which i can't recall anymore. but i believe this is a different proposition

    hi, can i ask about the launch angle of the 18*20 version? higher or lower than say any of the new blades? thanks

    A racket with the Blade's stability but more maneuverable?

    i would agree that tc97 would work. depends on specs of course but it is possible to design what you are looking for. i use blade and tc 97 interchangeably and always think that they play similarly except tc97 a bit quicker through the air and more spinny (both 16*19) while both are equally...

    i think it would be nice if some plain vanilla colours were on offer too. otherwise it's only a choice between a drug cartel and the milky way galaxy editions. pls don't discriminate against players who'd like to remain unnoticed on court I've blacked out the golden bits on my v3 but don't get...

    blade is more stable and has a tighter string pattern, so more directional control but less spinny

    interesting - i had the opposite thoughts since i started playing with the new blade - ra63 felt a bit too bendy and unstable compared to blade and thought ra70 could be better. but have decided to tinker around with my ra63 for a bit longer.

    2019 Wilson Blade

    There should be some regulation put in place to ban more than one good racquet in any given two year period with appropriate quotas allocated to the various manufacturers. I thought i was settled on going with v7 because of the "collision with the ball". And now it starts all over again

    The feel at impact is really great on the blade. I have tc97 310 6pts and it is as stable as blade but feels more boardy. Blade feels how tc97 would feel if i used one of the multi colour kids tennis balls. Some may not like it but I find it very nice. tc95 63ra 320 10pts is as flexible/soft at...

    On this particular 'feel / flex / pocketing' aspect - what about the new blade - better / worse?

    Thanks - I had not added anything at 7" but will do so now. By stability i mean that the racquet flutters and that is the case both when absorbing a quick ball and when trying create own pace on a slow ball.

    Will i gain much more stability if i move the weights in the handle of my tc95 up as much as possible? Currently 320g, 10hl with the hybrid grip. I have a tc97 310g 6hl and that is stable. If i were to match that weight and balance would i get anywhere near the stability of tc97? (Tried adding...

    What grip are you using? Babolat Skin Feel replacement grip will reduce the grip size significantly compared to a [standard] grip. I had Angell's hybrid grip on my A shaped 5 size grip which was too big. I then replaced it with Babolat Skin Feel and it felt too small. Now with Karakal it is just...

    Strings for Angell TC95 / TC100 (16*19)

    Hyper g (which i didnt like in other racquets but my favourite in tc95)

    I wouldnt call my tc95 rock solid (320, 10pts). K7 red feels noticably more stable in comparison. Not to say that it's not a great racket otherwise. But if stability is your thing then might be worth looking into this in greater detail

    Thanks. For some reason unknown to me they play differently in my hands despite using the same grommets That might be a good idea to try the sleeves. I ve been using tungsten tape which is the opposite - lots of weight over small area so ive been putting some little patches at 3.30 and 5 and...

    Hi, Ive done the the half circle of going from tc97 16*19 to k7 red and now to tc95 63ra 16x19. Tc95 is the best for my game so far but i wonder ifthere is a way to make it more stable. Ive tried adding weight but it gets too heavy to swing before it gets stable. If i switch to my old head speed...

    I bought mine on 20 dec 2017 that is the date when the batches with the different grip sizes overlapped. Don't know if the change in stiffness coincided with the handle changes. I am saying "overlapped" because I wanted to buy a second k7 later and wanted identical grips but the manufacturer...

    Armfriendly replacement of Blade?

    i doubt that vibrations from a racket can reach your shoulder. wrist - yes (especially of the non-dominant hand in a double handed backhand). elbow - likely (but grip size and shape and strings could be at fault too, same goes for wrist). shoulder probably more to do with the motion of your...

    if anyone is using angell's hybrid grip (without an OG) - how do you make/keep it tacky? I read about leather grip treatments - denaturated alcohol + castor oil - do you think the same could be used for a hybrid? (Adding OG not option this time as I went for size 5 and anything extra would bee...

    yes very interesting, have been itching for some time to get a new racket. like my k7, tempted to try tc95 but ideally should be a hybrid of both of some sort - a k7 with 315g, 7 or 8hl, 98", a bit rounder head shape, D frame, C5 grip, 16x19 ha ha, i really don't know what i am talking about but...

    is there anything peculiar about the weight and balance of tc95 that should be taken into account before buying? Or should i just stick to my usual preference and that should work for tc95 just as well as it does for other rackets. sorry i know it's impossible for anyone to answer what works for...

    ah yes that's right - for k7 size 4 is as big as it gets i think it's a sign that i need to complete my angell collection with either a tc95 or tc100 in size 5 :) think i will also prefer c shape which is not available for k7 adding heat sleeve - i don't i will be skilled enough to do a good job...

    Thanks, yes the weight and balance is getting a bit out of control, hence the need to go up in size. Thanks for your inputs

    I'd like to ask for some help from Angell grip size experts. The grip size of my k7 is L3. I play it with wilson leather grip (was the thickest I could find - 1.9mm) and I put three yonex super graps over it to get to a size that suits me. (The first two overgrips are used (ie worn out a bit)...

    I've played halo2(m)/halo1(c) hybrid once in a tc97 and once in a k7 liked it when fresh but in k7 it very soon got a bit too mushy. don't remember how long it lasted in tc97 - if my memory serves me right it was a noticeably longer period. but that was a while ago, so dont remember clearly...
