    Technifibre TFIGHT LTD 16 x 19

    For what it’s worth, I’ve been playing with the 16x19 DC LTD for a bit now and find them really, really comfy. No arm, shoulder or elbow issues and I’m playing them full bed poly. For comparison, I can’t say the same for the PS97cv. I really like the feel of them and find them to be a nice...

    Can you beat this girl?

    I’ll be the first to congratulate on you on such a creative use of a quote from one of the greatest guy films ever. Now I have to figure out how to work a Caddyshack quote in here...

    Looking forward to hitting with these on Wed., thought I just bought a boatload more 315 LTDs, so I think I'm set. o_O

    How important are looks to you for your racquet?

    I dig the previous LTD paint, but I have a hard time believing I will dislike that new one less in person :eek:

    Why do Tec racquets FEEL like crap?

    Actually just hit with @snoflewis tonight and was playing a bit more with the DC LTD 16x19, it is anything but cheap and hollow feeling to me. That racquet feels amazing...

    If I don't turn 40 until November, do I have to maintain a lowered level of complaint until then?

    After another 4 hours rotating between my PS97’s and the new TC95s, I’d say my initial estimation of the cyclone 17 was a bit off. After the initial tension drop from the first hour it got too launchy and I put it down and picked the PS back up to win some sets... I haven’t hit with the RS...

    I've used Cyclone more than any other string so it's definitely my easiest reference point. I liked the overall feel of the Lyon and found it fairly crisp and linear, definitely could have been gravitating towards the cyclone just due to familiarity. I'll take your note to heart and keep...

    Hit last night for the first time with my TC95s, with RSLyon@50 and Cyclone 17@53. Definitely digging the sticks and started grooving with them a bit, though I was rotating between them, PS97's and Tec 315 LTDs for the 2 hours of hitting, so I am only just starting to get a feel for them. I'll...

    Hitting Partners in South Bay, Los Angeles (3.5-4.0)

    Just wanted to give a bump to @snoflewis. We had a great hit last night, and he’s a very nice guy to boot. Anyone in the area looking for someone to hit with would be well served to drop him a line. Don’t let him sandbag you into thinking he’s a 3.5 though ;)

    I haven’t played scorpion for years, but my memory was that it was too powerful for me and I couldn’t swing out. I have a couple packs still, I’ll have to string it up at some point.

    Right on, sounds similar to me actually. I’m getting the racquets back tomorrow with Cyclone@53 and Lyon@50, so I should have a fair idea of how I feel about them by next week. Demoing them against some 315 LTDs as well as my PS97’s, so hopefully it doesn’t turn into brain overload. I...

    RF97: Volkl Cyclone Tour 16g

    Not the RF97, but Cyclone 16g in the PS97cv was giving me some tinges of pain in my elbow for sure. I also felt it was just too muted feeling when paired with that muted racquet. Previously was using the 16g on Volkl PB10 Midplus and thought it paired well and I had no arm issues. At the...

    Mine are 16x19, should have mentioned that. do you like the hybrid? I generally play full bed poly... Right on, thanks man! Interesting. I’m coming from playing with PS97CVs, so based on the 63ra rating dropping to high 50s, I’m expecting the TCs to feel softer. What softer polys have you...

    My TC95s came in and I’ve got them to leaded and ready to be strung, just wanted to ask about people’s experience with various tensions... Going to string Cyclone 17 @ 53 since that’s my reference tension for that string. Also planning on stringing RSLyon 17 and I’m not really sure where to go...

    sub-12 oz. racquets that serve like thunder. . .

    Definitely the Pure Drive Roddick was far and away the most monstrous serving stick I’ve ever used, pretty easy to get addicted to. Not my favorite otherwise, and I too had to move away from it because it was hurting my arm. Still haven’t found anything that matches it, hopefully the TC95s...

    Well, all the raving in this thread has forced me to join the club and grab a couple of TC95s to try. Got the 16x19 63ra version at 11oz/9pt so there's some room to tweak a bit. I'm currently hitting the PS97cv which I like well enough but don't love, with string I figure that the base specs...

    Hyper G Stringing help

    Much appreciated, thanks for the detail. Should I assume you went thru the same? If so, curious where did you land tension-wise?

    Hyper G Stringing help

    On the hyper-g tension front... I strung 18g @ 53 in a PS97 CV and thought it was a great feeling string, heavy shots, lots of spin, definitely had to get used to taming the power a bit at first. Unfortunately my elbow did not like it, I could tell after an hour and cut it out. For what it's...

    highest quality bag

    I’ll throw a shout out to the Tecnifibre rackpack, just got one and that thing is fantastic. Great design and lots of interior storage, looks like a duffel when carrying. I just used it on a cross country flight as a carry on and it worked great, lots of space. Don’t know about long term...

    PS97CV Poly Recs...

    On this next go round I think I’m going to string a full bed of Cyclone 18 in a color other than black to see if it has a bit more of the pop and crispness I’m after. The black 16g is what I’ve used in the past, but I think that given how muted this frame is, it just doesn’t jive well with the...

    PS97CV Poly Recs...

    Right on, I’ll give the boost a shot as well. How tight are you stringing that in this frame? Any comparisons to something like cyclone or hyper-g? Thanks!

    PS97CV Poly Recs...

    Awesome, thanks man, just ordered two sets to try. Couple questions for you... Did you try various tensions before settling at 52? A cursory read of some of the reviews on TW shows quite a few people stringing higher than normal to tame some power... Also, how much play time are you...

    PS97CV Poly Recs...

    Hi all, Looking for some reccomendations from anyone who has experience with this frame (or the non cv version) or just from your general string knowledge. I have developed, full strokes on both wings and generate plenty of my own rhs for what it’s worth. So far have hit the following...

    Pro Staff 97 Revelation

    Interesting note... I’m on my first stringing with this racket and am noticing a similar pattern, right around hour 2 with Cyclone 16 @ 53 and it started to feel like a launcher. First hour was great.... I’ll have to see if it’s a fluke, have another one strung the same I’ll get into. I...

    Montauk 7/27-7/30

    Hi All, I'll be in Montauk end of this month and looking for a casual hit. I'm coming off a several year layoff but was playing around 4.5 previously. Not sure of my schedule yet, but I'll have a car so anywhere nearby could work. Shoot me a message if you're interested. Thanks! Josh
