    Tennis Warehouse Playtest: Dunlop SX 300 Racquet Family

    Nice. I guess they will probably come out with a new FX500 as well…

    One handed backhand players, favorite/best rackets?

    The best ohbh’s I’ve hit (both slice and topspin) have been with the Wilson Six One 90 (white one). :)

    Dunlop cx200 16x19 users

    Ahh the CX 200. I was thinking the CX 200 Tour 16x19.

    Which Tour 90 to Buy?

    Hmm tough one. I’d go with the latest one if you could. Or the cheapest one (in good shape).

    Head Prestige MP 2020 compared to Head Prestige Pro 2022

    The new one has the SW bumped up “slightly” 323 to 325. It’s not much, but I think it will help with a little more power.

    Highest Rated TW playtested racquets of All Time

    The Head 360+ Radical MP. Not super high, like the Project 17, but still inflated imo. I would imagine the Boom MP will also get an elevated score. Overall 86 Groundstrokes 85 Volleys 85 Serves 82 Returns 87 Power 83 Control 85 Maneuverability 83 Stability 85 Comfort 84...

    Prince Twistpower X97 Tour thoughts?

    Ive tried the X100. Yes it’s light, but amazingly stable. It’s like no other racquet I’ve hit with. There’s a reason TW Jason chose it as his racquet of choice. They’re expensive and hold their value, so I haven’t picked one up yet.

    Absolute worst racquet ever?

    Yep, the Pro is another story though.

    Head Boom MP (lol)

    Pure Drive Tour - Wow

    Im not sure. I’m just used to the FX and I’ve won some pretty hard matches with it. I guess I liked the way the FX feels slightly smaller.

    CAP grommets on a Radical MP (18x20 95sq)

    The Cap grommets seem to work well with the graphene rads (not 18x20, but still available). I know Borges (Miss State) used a rad with cap grommets.

    Head Prestige 2021

    Lots of SW on these.

    Pure Drive Tour - Wow

    The PD plays better than the FX stock. The FX plays better than the PD modded. I added lead (2x1/4”x7”) from 10 to 2. I’ve tried weight in the handle but prefer it without. It’s still about 3-4 pts HL. The PD head feels a little wider than the FX.

    New Babolats in 2022?

    There was a picture if it on here in another thread but it was taken down. Dark grey and red.

    Congrats Team HEAD

    So the cost of materials in the new retail Heads is cheaper than in the PT layup?

    Im actually back to my old weighted up FX500. Lol

    HEAD Boom Official Thread

    The Boom Pro is a good hitting racquet imo. The head feels larger than a 98 (seems like more hitting space). It would work well with a poly (not super stiff or Kevlar) strung around 48-51lbs.

    RF97 remove leather grip, just overgrip => higher swingweight?

    More power than the 6.1 :)

    Its subjective. It’s not soft. The Boom MP felt very close to the 360 Speed MP.

    RF97 remove leather grip, just overgrip => higher swingweight?

    I replaced it with a Syn Grip. It drops it down about to about 12.3oz strung 4pts HL. Mine still felt heavier than the 6.1, but imo it had more power and played better.

    HEAD Boom Official Thread

    They talked about the feel, but it’s on the stiff side.

    Head Prestige 2021

    Cool. I didn’t feel the Graphene crisp crackle in the 360+ racquets. I felt it in the Boom and the 360 Speeds. But you had issues with the Auxetic PMP 99?

    Head Prestige 2021

    Graphene = arm pain. Graphene + more SW = more arm pain.

    RF97 remove leather grip, just overgrip => higher swingweight?

    This is the best mod for the RF. Like the other posters have said, it doesn’t add SW, but it makes it feel like it. Taking the leather off makes this one more maneuverable IMO. But I did this when I played my RFs for about a year.

    Head Auxetic - What is it?

    ^^^Yep. These new Prestiges all have more SW, which I think is a good idea. You i.e. get more plow through at a lighter weight.

    Congrats Team HEAD

    We know that you know all these codes and stuff. Basically what you said was they are all using pro stocks, and that’s okay. Is my original question really worth all this? I guess if we don’t get on the “Head is the greatest racquet in the world” bandwagon, then we’re just haters, or just ignorant.

    HEAD Boom Official Thread

    The Boom Pro is not bad, it’s pretty stiff and needs loose strings. The string pattern is just about perfect. If anything, it’s on the tighter side.

    You guys are too uptite. Carry on with your revelry.

    Lol, Krejokiva is obviously using a 360 Extreme, but I would say for almost certain that Mertens is not using a retail Graphene 360 Speed MP.
