    Pros and Cons of Pro Kennex Redondo Mid

    I haven't stopped using the Redondo. It's there in my bag whenever I need it. I've always said that the Redondo's like a 9-mm. pistol. Easy to control, easy to use, quick to move around with. But it does not have enough stopping power of a .45. You have to be accurate with your shots to do some...

    I'm starting a racquet company - how would you design your perfect racquet?

    s_andrean, have you played a Wilson ROK 93? If not, you should. String it low in the mid 40's and it's a wonderful-feeling racket. That's one racket you could base your feel-specs on. Also I'd suggest pallet system for the grip. And a wider butt cap, like PK's. May not be as big, but just a...

    Wilson ProStaff RF97 Autograph is ... "GAY" ???

    I'm amused. Next code they could come up with, maybe, LES?

    You can't expect accuracy on PK sites. Ages ago when the Heritage 93 (silver) was discontinued, you still see them on PK sites. And, sadly in Thailand, PK is considered "a toy brand" by most.

    Pro Staff 85 - stringing kevlar/poly hyrbid. thoughts?

    For my PS85: Tourna Quasi Gut 17 mains @50 and Tourna Big Hitter 17 crosses @48. Nice pop and good feel. Kevlar is more lasting, yes. But remember this: you arm ain't got spare parts.

    Hi Max. The Redondo's not good for your elbow? I'm 52 and still have no problem. I'd love to get the stick but sending it all the way wouldn't be worth the cost. And right now I'm enjoying my stash of SV85's and RF85's, which should last me until I'm 70, I'd suppose.

    Nope. No other Redondo Mid. So I'm storing mine away, letting it rest with all the battle scars. I still have two BlackAces 93's, which I pull one out to play with once in a while. Right now I'm "back" to the old days ... SV85 (5 of 'em) and the more modern RF85 (2 of 'em).

    OK, I've added lead to the top of the SV to match that of the RF headguard. Now the SV weights 350.6 grams and 8.5 pts HL. The RF weights 351.0 grams and 9.5 pts HL. These numbers are so close that, for simplicity's sake, I wish to consider them 'just the same' for now. I haven't used them...

    TESTED RF85 (L3) 351.0 grams SV85 (L3) [JYQ] no bumper guard 347.0 grams Chicago (L4) [GOI] "trimmed off" bumper guard 365.2 grams Got them strung up with Head PPS 17 at 52 lbs on a Wilson machine. The weights shown are strung weights. Not a decisive comparison, yet, because: - Grip size...

    OMG! This is one the best comment ever on user's racket review. It's a review of Gamma Bubba 137. I just went LMAO. See how the comment can be related to the RF85. Comments: I have been playing with this racquet for quite some time and have found success with it. I am 78 and I love to hang out...

    Yes, Peter, as a branding consultant & graphic designer myself, I agree with your observation on brands promoting 'technology' through busy designs -- which I'd rather call them as 'noisy', instead. In fact, talking about racket graphics, one design that I really like is the Volkl V Engine 10...

    LOL. I'm not teasing. I'm out of town on a military mission and there are no stringers in this part of the country. And I just got the stick from a US Marines whom I know to carry it all the way from my orders with TW, to drop the order at his place, and get the goods half the world over here...

    Ahhhh ... I just got the RF85. The pictures don't do justice to the actual beauty of this stick. Kudos to its designer! The combination of the graphics and the texture really make this stick sublime. I'll have to wait another three weeks before I'll get it strung up. We'll, patience is a...

    LOL. Done that in the past, too! I grew up with woodies and, for my age, an 85 head is already big. I'm going to compare the RF85 (L3) with a Chicago (L4) and the SV's (L4 and 2x L3) and see how they all feel like. Same string set up of course. The difference that I can not control is the grip...

    Wilson Rok

    ROK no topspin? I can get decent topspin out of it. No problem. Is string a factor here? I have mine strung with mains Wilson Sensation 17 @50 and cross Luxilon Adrenalin Rough @46

    I have just place an order for the RF85 with TW. Once I get it (next Sunday, carried half the world over by a friend) I will find time to compare it with a closest-matched SV85 using Gosen OG-Sheep Micro 17 (or 16) at 50 lbs. Why OG-Sheep and not some better set up? Simple: it's only to get the...

    RF85 Specs

    Hi, Due to various confusing discussions, I would like you to please confirm if the published specs of the RF85 on TW product page come from actually measuring the currently available RF85 itself? Please confirm this, as there are sayings that the RF85 is the same as the recently 're-released'...

    Thanks, Peter Well, I'm not Pete. So what? Why should I 'move on'? I'm playing to stay in shape and not competing. I play to enjoy MY tennis. And been playing for 40 years. So, please, don't lecture me on what racket to use or not to use.
