    Q for Troy: Prince Phantoms...

    @Tao69 Adding a leather grip usually shifts the balance more headlight as leather is lighter than the synthetic grips on the Prince frames

    Is Wilson Blade the most used frame on tour?

    @jarko111 My take on the matter The Brand's rights in the US was sold to management company that did not understand the tennis market. They were expecting a big name to drive sales. The grass roots teaching pro in the US had driven sales since the brands launch IMHO. Prince Japan is a...

    Guillermo Vilas racquet History

    @vsbabolat @BorgCash The double V is a gut company from the era. French I believe. I remember it sounding like "Vila Vitch"

    Which strings are these? Can you help me identify them?

    Try Prince SG yellow. Poly had not taken over for young players then. The OP stated the strings moved and made a crunching sound, leading me to feel it is a basic Syn Gut.

    Head MXG 1

    Well all of the MxG line are on clearance @ TW. A rather quick hook even by today's standards. Perhaps they will release a CAP version after this generation is cleared out. The one pictured on the machine in this thread, seemed to only have 16 mains. I only saw a couple of the Sr players at...

    Kohlschreiber is using the RF97 black and white

    @Virginia Oh but they are players endorsing this pj. Several of the women have the Tuxedo over whatever they actually use.

    Kohlschreiber is using the RF97 black and white

    @Virginia He gets the frame he has been using, just with the current paint job. Otherwise, he might have to pay for his frames, if he could find them. Why I dare to say if HEAD would release the PT 57 A, made in Austria with a MxG pj, @vsbabolat might even give it his blessing after a proper...

    Prince "Experimental" 2-handed racket

    I use a Natural racket as part of my training. I found it helps me smooth out my single handed strokes when warming up.

    Prince 93P 14x18 on TW

    @graycrait Good to hear. I"invested" in head protection tape early on so my few frames are in good shape. Yes, Fittex are our friends.

    Prince 93P 14x18 on TW

    @graycrait Thank you for the detailed reply. I do have a few 90s {2 Spectrum Comps & a Graphite} which so far are not in need of grommets.

    Prince Spectrum Comp 90

    @graycrait IMHO>>>The marketing of frames in the 1980's was driven by teaching pro more than today if you go by the amount of teaching pro packages that were available across the many brands. When the Black Prince Pro metal was first released I could not find it in local store but could buy...

    Is it worth staying with Prince?

    @Ronaldo Fewer strings really decreases the string bed stiffness in frame ; which I think you felt , as the Blue is a 65 vs a 61 rdc number for your tour 98

    Is it worth staying with Prince?

    @Ronaldo I have found the _Ported Prince frames at the proper tension < lower > to be quite comfortable over the laast 10 +years. Granted with poly my Blue ported frames are never strung above 45 pounds.

    Is it worth staying with Prince?

    @PSC85 The Tour & Beast lines are aimed at the major market share holders, with their current specs. The lack of support for juniors & teaching pros mean that the young players are using other brands. Since most of the lines have non-ported options, that barrier of feeling different from all...
