    Tennis Warehouse: Head Boom MP (Prototype 2021) Racquet

    I just took a look at the Pro specs and it's thinner beam and stiffer so not sure if it would feel and play similar to a weighted MP. I've currently put ~4g at 12 o'clock and counterweighted in the handle, but will probably add some more to 3/9. MP...

    Tennis Warehouse: Head Boom MP (Prototype 2021) Racquet

    I definitely think adding some lead would increase stability and put more weight into my shots which was the biggest downside of the racket. I liked the way it felt. I liked the dampened feel off the stringbed and how it felt comfortable, but not overly muted. I'm hoping that adding lead...

    Og pro staff / Og 6.1 classic pro staff paint

    There was the actual retail PS 6.6 Stars & Stripes 85 which had a glossy finish, but Courier still played with the Pro Staff 85 w/ a matte stars & stripes pj.

    Og pro staff / Og 6.1 classic pro staff paint

    There's been multiple threads (some with lots of cool photos) of the various paintjobs on the Pro Staff 85: - Edberg's Pro Staff Classic - Sampras' Pro Staff 6.0 signature teal/black - Courier's Stars and Stripes I think the user Equijet had a nice collection. From my understanding the Pro...

    Head Pro Tour 2.0 - Ask Us All Your Questions! (podcast now here!)

    I agree with this. On Pro Staff vs PT2.0: Pro Staff Classic 6.1 16 x 18 will have more pop and spin, but is much stiffer. PT2.0 will feel more comfortable, lower launch angle. Pro Staff Classic 6.1 18 x 20 swings like a log for me. Definitely will have more plow if you can swing it. Not as...

    Wow, never seen this before, only the inverse (6.0 w/ 6.1 pj as mentioned by some of the other posters already). Neat one to have in your collection!

    Modern Estusa Power Beam Braided?

    I also thought it played similar to the Volkl V-Engine 10 Mid, except that the VE10Mid had a bigger sweetspot and felt more stable on balls hit in the upper hoop. The PBB was like inbetween the VE10Mid and older Volkl C10pro (which was much softer)

    Another cheating thread

    If it was just on the serve, and with your skill level, I would have just hit kick serves in the middle of the box, working on spin & height. It would be difficult for him to call those serves out, and grind out the points. The other option is to play on a clay court next time.

    Classic battle: PT630 vs PSC6.1 (Tour Edition

    I've played with both and prefer the PSC 6.1 Tour. Both are hefty frames, but for me, the PSC swung lighter. The PT630 was a log and I had issues hitting groundies unless I was 10 feet behind the baseline with ample time to set up. The PT630 also felt like it had more weight in the head...

    New Prince Graphites?

    I'm interested in seeing if there are any new Graphites in the works. I had an Exo3 Graphite 100 for a while, but I couldn't get used to the strange balance. Tried various lead setups, but could never get it to work.

    Question on Babolat Racquets

    Hello, I was reading though the review on the Babolat AeroPro Drive Cortex GT (APDC GT), and about a third of the way down, a photo piqued my interest. Could you tell me the name of the two racquets pictured next to the APDC GT? They look like the predecessors to the APDC GT, like the APDC...

    sorry for the semi-hijack, but anyone having arm problems w/ the sp black? i love everything about the racquet, but go home w/ a sore arm afterwards. for what it's worth, i didn't like any of the apd variants...just felt stiff and boardy.

    Power V grip: anybody use it

    i think the PVG is a great tool to learning the correct grips - it really reinforces and feels great in the hand. for some reason, i had issues serving with it, as nothing seemed to work except if i was holding it with an eastern grip - it's likely just me. groundies felt best though.

    Pacfic Acquires Fischer

    IIRC, Fischer tried to help local tennis shops by not allowing their products to be sold online for a long time. It's only been in the recent few years that they caved in. I think that's one of the things that hurt them. The other was the big, rounded, oddly-shaped buttcap. If it weren't...
