    Wilson Blade Pro (16X19) VS Ultra Pro (16X19)

    SW doesn't matter to me. In fact I think it's an advantage as it gives me more room to customize. So we will never know the layup difference. I'm not sure I'd understand it if you told me. The UP has a thicker beam and is stiffer but has a smaller head size. the BP has a thinner beam and is less...

    Wilson Blade Pro (16X19) VS Ultra Pro (16X19)

    Thanks, I'm reading through the threads. The Ultra has a thicker beam all the way around. =more powerful. The Blade Pro has a larger head size which may equal things out. No ide on the stiffness of either... I called Wilson and they didn't even know the stiffness ratings were on there, even if...

    Wilson Blade Pro (16X19) VS Ultra Pro (16X19)

    Hi guys, I know these sticks are pretty new but I thought I'd ask any way. I'm hearing the Blade pro is an H-22 mold and the Ultra Pro is an H-19. I have no idea if that is accurate. I loved the ultra tour but needed a little more pop and spin. I hated the new blades with the Clash technology...

    Wilson Pro Labs: Ultra Pro (16x19) Official Thread

    I remember reading that Wilson was switching to a more rounded grip. I noticed the difference the first time I picked up a clash. I definitely feels thicker.

    How do you deal with people who don't call lines fairly

    I'm sure. I was laughing through the whole thing.

    How do you deal with people who don't call lines fairly

    I had a doubles match and we were getting robbed. I've never seen anything like it. Balls that were two feet in, were being called out and not just out, with a resounding NO! We did all the polite stuff. "are you sure?" then "Really?, are you sure?". Finally my partner had enough. They were...

    Jason, Can you post specs for your clash?

    that sounds perfect! you went clash instead of clash tour right? Oh, while I'm here, what strings and tension are you using these days?

    Jason, Can you post specs for your clash?

    Hi Jason, I always seem to be about one racquet behind you. I love my Pure Strike but my arm doesn't. I heard you switched to the Clash and modified it. Would you mind sharing your current specs?

    Artengo TR 990 Pro

    Played a doubles match with my leaded up TR-990/ I haven't had a chance to measure it but we should be in the 330gm 33cm 320sw range. It really is sort of a kinder softer Pure Aero. It doesn't have the shock and awe factor of a PA but it is more controlled, easier on the arm. It's also a little...

    How about a blog on your favorite doubles racquets?

    Hi guys, Have you ever though of doing a blog on your favorite doubles racquets. Possibly, one from what is available and one pick for your favorite of all-time?

    Artengo TR 990 Pro

    Got mine back with Hyper-G 17. SW is only 311 compare to my Pure Strike at 326 with the same strings. Why am I the lucky one to an out of spec racquet? My pure strike is slightly modded with a little blue-tac in the handle. Here are the specs with one tourna-grip wrap on each and the same...

    Artengo TR 990 Pro

    Oh, I forgot. You should be able to get replacement grommets from Decathlon soon. In the meantime Artengo said they could supply. FWIW.

    Artengo TR 990 Pro

    I talked to customer service and they told me they were not planning on discontinuing the TR-990 but because of COVID had problems keeping stock in place.

    Artengo TR 990 Pro

    O.K. First hit. I've been using a head pro tour 2.0 lately as I'm working on my serve and volley for doubles. You could not pick a racquet further away from that than the T-990. With that said, this racquet has my respect. It does have a hot spot if you hit low, like of you get jammed. Very...

    Artengo TR 990 Pro

    Hi Guys, MY TR-990 arrived today. 322G Balance at 33mm with SW of 314 strung. I think it's going to rain for the next couple of days. I'll let you know when I have a chance to hit with it.

    Best Wilson racquets to try?

    I'm going to throw you a curve. It's not a Wilson. You might want to try the Yonnex VCore Pro97 310. It's slightly lighter than the Pro Staff but with a lower swing weight. Possibly a more head light balance as well. It for sure is more maneuverable. If you search, you can always find someone...

    New Wilson Racket - Blade vs Clash vs Pro Staff

    You should try the Clash 100 and the 98. The 100 is a love/hate thing. I know several college players using the 100 stock (not the tour) and they smack the crap out of the ball. The tour seems to be the least popular and the most erratic. I did not like the clash's as I felt too disconnected...

    Pure Aero 2019 vs Pure Aero 2015 vs Pure Strike 16X19 v3

    Hi guys, I thought I'd do a quick comparison of these racquets for anyone who's interested. Background. I'm a 50 year old 5.0. I can hang in the 4.5 range when i;m in shape and playing a lot. My weapons are my lefty serve and forehand. All sticks were strung with HyperG 17 at 48lbs. Ground...

    Is the Angell ASL 3 the Kinder, Gentler APD?

    Interesting turn of events. I was talking to a relative who got their hands on an Artengo TR-990. I've put down my Pure Strike for a while and have become reacquainted with my Pure Aero's. Interestingly enough the PA don't hurt my elbow as much as the PS does. ...weird. I'll give a report when...

    Will midsize racquet make you play better?

    Here's my take. Yes, as long as you are on the attack. My favorite racquet in the world is the PS-85. To this day I've never felt a better racquet. My body and mind know, when I pick this stick up, my footwork has to be on point. The problem is I cannot maintain this high level of focus for a...
