    Prince Phantom Pro and Phantom Pro100P

    if you like more feedback and sharp bevels, I would suggest putting a leather grip.. its great! It will make it a little headlight that you may feel the difference but it won't change the swing weight...

    Naomi Osaka Racquet Specs

    i thought I saw a picture of her racket that she uses a leather grip which would typically add 10g... that's a heavy racket! i could be wrong though but in any case that's 340g is heavy for WTA standards

    Pro's Pro Strings!?

    so I had I go with Cyclone Power 1.30mm at 48 lbs yesterday. I am convinced that this string is nothing like Signum Pro Firestorm. If I have to drop the tension another 4-6 lbs to play like another string then they are not similar strings...It's still good string ..control and spin are good...

    Pro's Pro Strings!?

I bought a reel of Cyclone Power 1.30 and strung it on my other PP100P at the same tension 52 lbs on the drop weight.. my understanding...

    Prince Phantom Pro and Phantom Pro100P

    The grip size I use is L2 4-1/4". I was a tennis center pro shop and I tried gripping 100P with the resipro grip and it felt more rectangular that round.. guess it depends on the grip size... i love this racket..it's really buttery...it swings quicker than the EXO3 Graphite 100's I have been...

    Head Velocity

    just wanted to report back on testing Natural vs Black Velocity 16... here's my quick take.. Natural Velocity 16 : Felt more like low powered syn-gut. Seemed stiffer than black. Control was better than balck Black Velocity 16: Felt like a soft poly with a just a hint of more spin that natural...

    Prince Phantom Pro and Phantom Pro100P

    it looks like the original pallet with no shaving done..another note the feel is so buttery on the racket.. added some tungsten @ 3 & 9 to get more plowthrough

    Prince Phantom Pro and Phantom Pro100P

    so I bought a Phantom Pro 100P off the bay... I noticed that the grip shape is more rectangular that usual? I played with Prince with a long time and was used to the round grip shape. I had to install layers of medical tape on (2) bevels to get it more round.. Any thoughts? BTW the medical tape...

    Prince EXO3 Graphite 100 with string inserts ... I added weight to the handle to get racket more headlight and I also took of the leather grips and installed Tourna Pro Thin to go down 1 grip size (L3-down to L2) people say that it feels like a club... but for me the thin beam and holes in the...

    Head Velocity

    Yes I did! Thanks ByeByePoly! I was going to string another set 16 natural at a lower tension but I think a comparison to 16g black was in order..next week I am playing with a friend who we have similar styles but can run down balls all day...so it should be crappy match to watch I...

    Head Velocity

    guess my play is unacceptable to some.. which is not surprising... can't make everyone happy.... I am happy that I am playing tennis regularly (8 years now) after many stoppages of not playing tennis in my life! Not going to stop me from playing or buying set of 16G Black Velocity today

    Head Velocity

    Thanks ByeByePoly! I see you as the Velocity President! Let's make Multifilaments Great Again! But seriously I am like you ....a player using polys looking for more arm friendly response but still obtaining spin and control... Yes I have noticed the spinning of the racket..I do know that I...

    Caroline Garcia Spec

    so did we ever find out the specs to her racket? I have seen pictures that she uses a leather grip? Has she really switched to VCORE100 from SV100? Is she using stock racket with leather grip and added lead?..
