    No, I don't think so. I have several pt630s. They made hairpins 10g lighter to put CAP on.

    *****THE OFFICIAL HEAD PRO TOUR 630/280 Club*************

    I used to play with Dunlop 4D 200 (18x10 and 16x19, the euro version) versions. Played with them a lot (years). Perfect sticks, especially 18x20, but I had real problems with serve and topspin 1HBH. I think Dunlop 18x20 is better than pt630 in volleying and BH slicing but pt630/pt57a is better...

    both my pt280 and older pt630 hairpins that came without CAP are heavier than my newer pt630 hairpin that came with CAP. The CAPped hairpin is about 10g lighter.

    How to improve concentration (on serve and ground strokes)?

    Thank you very much to all of you. You recommendations are brilliant. Yes, I need to work more on his toss and kick serve movement. I really like your recommendations on ground strokes drills too. Yes, he can't sustain the level he's trying to play now. He definitely needs more point pressure...

    How to improve concentration (on serve and ground strokes)?

    This is what I'm trying to do over last 3-4 months without any significant progress. He's shanking the ball on top spin serves a lot. Similar thing happens on topspin ground strokes. The balls go to the net or fence all the time. This is despite he has pretty good coordination. May be I should...

    How to improve concentration (on serve and ground strokes)?

    one of my fellow I couch has very unstable serve. And I can't do anything to rise his serve percentage. He has a sort of mental block or something. Here's some details. The guy is 28. He's tall and a good athlet. I helped him to develop a good technique and he his legs now work OK. I think he's...

    ChrisG no problems with changing grommets. I even tried to take very old, dry and jammed plastic grommets off and putting them back without much troubles. Just use a pathfinder guiding awl and a hairdryer as cdik recommends. You can fix the grommet's original form with the hairdrier easily.

    The Cult of PT57

    Thanks for voting and your suggestions. I really appreciate your help. The second version would probably be the last one (I have taken up too much of your time already) and it's based on vote results. Trying to narrow my search I've just added 2 more options.

    Thank you, guys. thanks for proposal. I tried to do some manipulations with the hoop with no luck, but I'll try again. I think you can grab free Inkscape for 2d vector design. I've done this sketch in Blender 3d. However the learning curve for Blender 3D is pretty steep. You will need some...

    The Cult of PT57

    Hi all, I'm thinking of giving a new life to my pt57a and pt630 racquets in terms of paintjob. I'm going to repaint racquets in a local car paint workshop (after removing old paint of course). Trying to find a golden middle PJ and having some 3d experience I've prepared following sketch. I was...

    stringing is personal preference but I think the stick is already quite comfortable. I like alu power which isn't comfortable at all. I'm now experimenting with cheaper alternative (tourbite and syntetic hybrid) in lower tensions

    Thank you, SFrazeur. That's very interesting. Unfortunately I won't be able to use CO2. Only air. But next time I'll try higher pressure.

    I don't know exactly what is happening. I guess manufacturers are using different materials for ball core. A sort of membranes are put inside the balls, aren't they?

    How To Pressurize / Revive Old Tennis Balls...

    Has anybody had experience with Babolat Roland Garros balls? I'm asking because I haven't had any luck with Head ATP balls. These balls cannot be re-pressurized (though I haven't tried pressure above 25psi yet. May be going to 30 or 35 will help...).

    Split tension: what is the optimal mains/crosses tension difference?

    Are you using 16x19 racquet? I'm now experimenting strining TourBite 1.25/ Gosen 1.2 (45/47) in a 18x20 string bed. I like this combination a lot.

    I do the same. You will need to put racquet into hot water for 1min only. You can put on gloves to take the pallets off. No problems with them after this operation.

    I have RT630 Candy Cane (a lighter version of Zebra). It plays great but I prefer PT630. My serves and baseline game are better with PT630. I think overally PT630 is more versatile stick. And RT630 is dumb in comparison.

    My trek font hairpin (I have only one) has different specs than my several shadow font hairpins (I have several). The trek font hairpin has lower SW (more weight is concentrated in the middle on the racquet. All my shadow font hairpins have higher SW because more weight is concentrated at the...

    My PT57A in Liquidmetal PJ (it doesn't have PT code visible on the hairpin) is more flexible than my most flexible PT630. I have several variations of PT630. I didn't make any RDC measuments.

    Weiss Cannon Silverstring 1.20 or Mosquito Bite 1.19 for dense 18x20

    I'm now using Silverstring full bed. I really like it (I'm satisfied almost 100% with it) but I need a bit more power from my string bed. My current racquet is pt630 (quite comfortable frames) and I hope Mosquito will add some juice. There're no 12m packages here. Thin strings live untill dead...

    Weiss Cannon Silverstring 1.20 or Mosquito Bite 1.19 for dense 18x20

    Does anyone have experience with both strings on the player's racket with 18x20 dense string pattern? I know there're better strings but can anyone recommend one of these?

    I prefer shadow font version with shaved grommets punched on top. Originally I shaved TK238 CAP grommets to MG's bumper size and punched many holes on top but later I added 3g of lead at 3 and 9. So my set up is now 335g, 323SW. But it's me. I'm rather small man. I would prefer trek font version...

    I'm pretty sure that manipulating with grommets and bumpers (you can even cut or punch bumpers to archive needed weight and balance), adding or removing lead tape, playing with grips and overgrips should finally help to archive an orgasm (may I use this word on this site?). After some...

    What was your previous racquet? You're probably mishiting with PT630 since you came from a racquet with the sweetspot located a bit higher or lower. Be patient and try to adjust. Fine tuning with grips and grommets should help too. Try different versions of the PT630. This stick is almost...
