    The Oversize Racquet Club

    I use a Microgel Radical OS. It's as powerful as a mid plus due to its low flex and low swingweight, but you get the added forgiveness of a 107 sq in head.

    "Plow through" and "heavy balls"

    plow-through or no plow-through... the way i see it, just choose the lightest racquet with the lowest swingweight that allows you to hit a very heavy ball (with enough control), and that you find stable when returning a huge serve. if that "lightest" racquet for you is a 13oz POG then use it...

    Replacement Bumper & Grommet for Head Prestige Classic 600

    Don't know anyone personally who used LM grommets on a 600 but there are loads of people who did so on these boards - which is why I had bought them. Yeah I'm selling my old sticks, got some offers. The 600 is a racquet there always will be a market for. I'm fine man, been very busy...

    Replacement Bumper & Grommet for Head Prestige Classic 600

    hey slap, what's up? I've got a bunch of Liquidmetal prestige mid grommets which I bought back when I used the 600, but I never had to change them. I suggest getting them only if they're worn out.

    Sampras working with Wilson on new players racquet...

    I guess it will be a limited edition racquet with a small head that weighs a ton: Sampras' real racquet.

    No love for lighter racquets?

    I wouldn't go as far as to say 11oz racquets get "pushed around" but they feel less stable than a 12.5oz when returning a monster serve.

    why no metric measurements or unstrung specs?

    i agree with you on the strung specs. 18g mutli is lighter than 16g kevlar. 5g make a difference to some people.

    <--***********head Prestige Club***********-->

    That's interesting. The USRSA specs say otherwise.

    <--***********head Prestige Club***********-->

    Yes, static weights should be almost identical. It's swingweight I'm talking about.

    <--***********head Prestige Club***********-->

    Actually, they are very different. The Classic has a swingweight of about 323 and is 7 pts headlight, whereas the Tour is 11 pts headlight and has a swingweight of 311. That makes the Prestige Tour 600 the easiest swinging prestige, and lowest powered.

    Is there any heavy rackets with power?

    Roger Federer. He, like everyone, can play with a woodie as well as with an 8oz granny racquet, but he'd have to alter his style somewhat.

    Is there any heavy rackets with power?

    With the K90 Roger has all the power he needs, but he can always generate more swing speed with a 10oz racquet than with his K90. Just like everybody else, he can swing a lighter racquet faster. The question is, does he want all that power? Obviously not. He already hits deep penetrating...

    Is there any heavy rackets with power?

    Heavy and Powerful... A 12oz (strung) oversize racquet: POG OS, Head Agassi LE, Avery M5... Choose the stiffest one of the lot.

    Is there any heavy rackets with power?

    I'll play your game then: with a racquet strung with natural gut the ball will travel further than with a racquet strung with kevlar [all other things equal]

    Is there any heavy rackets with power?

    A K90 strung with 18g multifilament packs more punch than a Pure Drive Roddick strung with 16g poly.

    They feel great. That's what they're hyped for. They're not gonna bump up your NTRP rating.

    Hence, if Becker and Cleven would drop the Volkl name yet keep the Volkl clientele, they'd have everything to win.

    4.0 + Racquets.

    I'm not going to go into the advantages of heavy racquets. Heavy racquets (even a Radical LE OS or a POG OS): +require good technique to generate good pace +takes a little longer to swing them, so you cannot have late preparation and still manage a great shot i.e. a little more...
