    I can later tonight when I'm back home. But iirc, they share the same grommets. EDIT: Nvm, they're separate entries on the website at least.

    New Head Frame

    I disagree, I think Head have good rackets, but actually aren't particularly great at marketing them (or at least, differentiating their silos enough). Assuming we line up vs. Yonex (but any other brand would potentially work. Vcore Pro - Control - Prestige Vcore - Spin - Extreme Ezone - Power...

    HEAD Extreme 360+ tour club?

    I do get what you mean, but 33.3cm balance is still 3-4pts HL ;):p

    New Head Frame

    For the most part, yes. On the other hand, at least upon first release, quite a few place do charge RRP and there are still quite a few physical stores that go by RRP as well. I just miss the days when the RRP used to be 50% of that.

    *Press X to doubt* AFAIK the Beast range is a moderately stiff tweener type affair, whereas the TC97 is regarded as being one of the successors to the PT280/630, a rather solid and plush control racket. Maybe the extra 0.5" adds the extra leverage you want, but i still don't think it will have...

    I really don't think that your TC97 is going to be more powerful than your Beast. Maybe if you'd said a TC100 I'd believe it more, but not so much the TC97. As for this, just be aware that a leather grip will also make the racket "less comfortable" since you're getting a more direct feedback...

    Not sure if I like this over the v3 Copper PJ... this one looks a bit more "generic modern" aka monotone with a splash of colour... I also still prefer the Octane by quite a ways. I do like the concept of the increased weight/balance options, although not sure how much I'd use them. I wonder...

    Another racket matching question!

    If the SW of the racket you like is higher than the one you don't like, you might be able to shift around the added weight to match SW, balance and static. If the SW of the one you like is lower than the other, you're pretty much SOL.

    NEW Prestige MP 360

    They've got Popyrin and I feel like someone else who's name eludes me at the moment. But yeah, they do need more, but I don't see it as being particularly marketable compared to their other ranges.

    Laver Cup around the corner!

    Just noticed that the new Prestige also has the colour split in this exact fashion across the throat and bridge. Thankfully the colours aren't quite as clashy, but I really preferred the previous design where it was just in the throat which would basically just look like a reverse 360 PJ...

    It's been alluded to that there should be a new pj coming soon, which is why Paul is running down stock of the current pj's.

    Impact of stringing on swing weight

    SW will depend on how the mass is distributed in the head. Could just be string QC, that in the heavier racket it was either slightly thicker towards the end of the racket, or maybe the cross strings at the top weren't pulled as tight (i.e. stretched as much) so it retained more weight at the...

    Laver Cup around the corner!

    I think the issue I have with this PJ is that to me it just looks like one of those budget non-silo'd Head Rackets that you can pick up for beginners:

    Saw them on the microsite: Really do not like the way they look and prefer the standard paint. Looks like only the MPs are getting the treatment.

    TWE | Grommets for Head Graphene Radical Pro

    Yeah, so the Graphene Radical up to the 360 has been the same, or at least, I can put Orange Grommets on my 360, so don't see why the reverse wouldn't be true. The latest 360+ Radicals are different however. I would expect @TWE Staff to be in a better position to clarify what the options are.

    TWE | Grommets for Head Graphene Radical Pro

    I'm not 100% sure on your ones; although the latter one seems like it would be okay, the Youtek part throws me off as iirc the was a mold change for Graphene so unsure why it's listed as being compatible. I would also be slightly more confident in...

    Adidas Barricade 2021

    Yeah, I've done that, and the other tip i have is that if you pull the tongue up, you can cinch the laces down just below the top "pad" on the tongue to prevent the tongue from sliding down. I still hate how flimsy and thin it is (in parts) though. I still don't think I'm getting on...

    New Head Frame

    I think it's more how RA is a very specific measure of flex (can't remember if it's single point, or something else), but I would hazard a guess that this is just a reverse of how people were saying that Head were trying to "game" the RA measurements during the early Graphene era by giving it a...

    Customisation of Racquets

    Just a note that stability and plow through are not necessarily the same thing. Plow through I would say generally manifests through swingweight (i.e. having enough mass at contact to go through the ball). On the other hand, stability is generally mapped to twistweight, i.e. torsional...

    Customisation of Racquets

    I said lead at the throat, not the balance point specifically, but more as a catch all in my statement to start from a blank slate and not take any initial measurements. Depending on where the lead is applied and/or where the balance point is, this could be above or below the balance point...

    Customisation of Racquets

    That's a good idea, although beware the rabbit hole you're going to be diving into :happydevil:. Also, if you're not looking to match any particular racket(s) right now, then unlike @esm, I would actually suggest going in blind (i.e. not measuring your current racket) and working everything off...
