    Played the DR98 & actually moved to TC97 straight after. TC97 hits bigger in every department for me, swings faster with much slimmer beam. I suppose it depends on your style of play, I keep RHS high.

    Good review that, I’ve not played the 101 but With over 4 years playing with the TC97 & having experience with the TC100 I’d agree on many points, especially the higher launch angle & use of spin to control the TC100.

    If you play a good level the first thing you will notice is that the frame Lacks plow & stability against heavy shots. It Needs weight to rectify this. I still have one stock that I use for feeding & a bit of social tennis, incredible touch & scalpel like at the net.

    Origin in crosses with a poly works great in TC97’s, using it at the moment with some black knight i’d got plays great, also have periodic arm problems caused by full bed poly & experimenting with different string too often rather than sticking with what works!

    Is hyper g best poly

    You sure it’s lynx edge? Only do it in blue 17g. Crazy kick on serves. Only tried hyper g once just didn’t like it one bit.

    Is hyper g best poly

    Head lynx edge worth a try, power control and action on ball were a big plus, unfortunately still A little too stiff for me.

    Is hyper g best poly

    Hated it when I tried it a few years back, cut it out after 10 minutes. Too stiff for me. I prefer softer poly’s such as scorpion or black knight.

    Yes I think this is why there’s quite a few who would like a TC98, with narrower beam to the TC100 & slightly more closed 16x19 pattern. Personally I’d of preferred to keep the beam narrower on the TC100 with an 18x20 option too.

    As I mentioned earlier the SW on 63RA used to be higher with most of the V2 frames. When Paul bought out the V3 he made sure the SW issues were Ironed out, I guess some customers wondered why their 300g frame seemed hard to swing! Many others enjoyed picking a high SW frame. Found the TC100’s to...

    No SW difference Between the 70RA & 63RA In the current V3’s. V2’s there could be a large difference in SW’s.

    Octane paint is thicker add’s approx 3SW. So I agree still around 325-330. My octane tc97 came in at 309g unstrung 325g strung with origin crosses 17g & Black knight mains 17g. (I think the string combination weighs less than some of my other set ups)

    Yeh same here I’m 49 & played the TC97 16x19 for 4 years. 310g unstrung & 326-330g depending on strings. Racquet is solid At those specs, no weight needed & can keep RHS fast.

    Have an octane TC97 With grey PU grip, it’s almost too pretty to play with, it’s a work of art.

    Been playing the Tc97 16x19 for 4 years now. Frame is not string sensitive, so worth trying what you have used before. I’ve used the following & all play great. Weiss cannon scorpion Tier 1 black night Head lynx edge (stiffer than the other 2 polys, but great bite on ball. Also TC97 plays great...

    Tecnifibre XTC 305 is better than the Blade 98, Pure Strike 98 etc

    XTC was too stiff for me, TF40 was sweet, but 18X20‘s I don’t need them in my diminishing tennis years.

    Worth buying the Octane paint for extra SW (3-5pts) probably take TC95 to 330SW & save his shoulder & arm too. 330’s more than enough unless your in the Worlds Top 100.

    using Head lynx edge In one of my tc97’s strung it at 50 very impressive, especially spin serves... although I’ve a little discomfort in forearm That’s a bit odd. Might try lower tension. They only do 17g but seems thicker than 17g BK.

    Hello Paul I’m in the U.K. if your sons a good player you can’t go wrong with an 18x20 Prestige. The TC97’s play similar, I use 16x19 has more power to the 18x20 prestige’s, you lose a little bit of control compared to 18x20 but the extra bite on serve & groundstrokes are worth it.

    Hit with majority of Heads line up over the last Few weeks with a local coach, one of the Prestige frames was strung with a blue poly which I enjoyed, I found out it’s Head Lynx edge, Bought a few packs & strung up one of my TC97’s & boom! Have to say a great blend of power, spin & comfort...

    I assume most people going the custom route already have an idea of their preference in head size, weight & string pattern as they have played for several Years, now that SW’s are in control the custom series are pretty a good option for most levels except recreational beginner’s.

    Watching the video reminds me of the fairly high launch angel of the 16x19 tc95, do you really need such a heavy frame though?

    Is that his shop? If so he doesn’t sell angell’s so he’s hardly going to be impartial is he! Buy Angell, not any of the racquets I sell!

    Personally like round poly in Angell 16x19’s. Black knight & scorpion are soft And my choice in TC97’s. However Tourna Black zone is noticeably stiffer with excellent control.

    My tc97’s are 330g strung, no lead tape. I’ve experimented with extra weight, but it’s detrimental to the playability for me. Frame is so stable & with the narrow beam it’s best to keep quick & agile through the air. Crushes the ball with good timing & RHS.

    Agree completely. Nice to hit different frames, but whenever I have club match or tournament, the TC97’s come out the bag.

    I’ve been using the V2 TC97 16x19 for over 3 years, must of play tested every popular modern & plenty of old school frames before sticking with the TC97. Took me roughly 3 months to fully commit, my original frame was 325SW, I messed about with strings as at that time I’d had my first & only...

    Yeh 16x19 TC97 looks pretty open but has much lower launch angle than tc95 16x19 & tc100. Great for hitting flat bombs & slice but spins there when you brush the ball. Where I always much preferred the tc95 & Tc 100 with round poly, Tc97 plays grey with round & shaped poly & also hybrids.

    Really liked the Babolat PCT, agree though was just a little underpowered, else I’d still be using it.

    Scorpion I prefer on its own, it’s an arm friendly poly with decent power & below average spin for a poly. Keeps tension really well too. I’ve strung it between 50-52 lbs.
