    The Cult of PT57

    I cant help but pick up a Zebra just to see how it plays. Does it play similarly to the PT 630? I have a PT 630 which I think it plays nice and soft but I think I still prefer the crisper response of the Bumblebee for the moment at least. Which of the two do you prefer? Most people also prefer...

    The Cult of PT57

    I just played with the PT630, and Im starting to come around from my first impressions of the racquet. My first impressions of it was it was too soft and flexible for my liking, so I added approximately 6-7 grams of lead to the top of the handle to stiffen the frame a little bit. Perhaps now...

    The Cult of PT57

    Is it because you don't like flexy sticks? I read in another post that you like the Radical Bumblebee alot and that is a PT57A as well, only with a different layup. I think Im abit like you in that the PT630 felt a little too soft and muted for my liking as opposed to the Radical Bumblebee...

    The Cult of PT57

    I play with the Bumblebees myself and I think its even better than the PT630, I prefer the the crispness and how solid it is at contact without being too stiff, some real good sticks. Wondering how the Zebra and Candycanes would compare?

    That explains it, so when people typically refer to the PT57A they refer to the PT57A2 i.e. the PT630? Ty again vsbabolat Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    *****THE OFFICIAL HEAD PRO TOUR 630/280 Club*************

    I always had this in the back of my mind and hopefully someone can come to my aid. Its known that the PT630 is basically the PT57A, but the retail version. So all PT57A's are essentially lighter versions of the PT630 with the same layup I presume? What about the previous versions of the PT57A...

    How often do you upgrade your racquets to the newer models?

    What racquets or racquet lines shouldn't exist or should have never existed in the first place

    When you say the PT630 is unforgiving do you mean it has a smaller sweetspot? Wouldnt putting lead tape at 3/9 take care of that?

    Gut/ZX Thread

    Sorry, I meant it doesnt snapback as well as Kevlar/ZX for example, it does glide as good as any other but the gut just doesnt snap back

    Gut/ZX Thread

    I played with Gut/zx today without pre stretch and it felt soft, going to play with it more to see how it settles. Also, the Gut doesnt slide over the ZX all that easily, is it because I strung it at 54/53? Maybe it'll snap back better once the ZX loses tension as it should

    *****THE OFFICIAL HEAD PRO TOUR 630/280 Club*************

    I was surprised by how head heavy it was though despite not having an OG. Whats the stock balance of the PT630? I could perhaps have gotten one less head light stock than I wouldve liked

    *****THE OFFICIAL HEAD PRO TOUR 630/280 Club*************

    Strung up my PT630 with Gut/ZX, added 3g of lead at 12 under the capped Graphene XT Prestige grommets, specs came up to 345g, 350SW and 34cm balance without an OG. Would adding an OG increase or decrease the SW?

    In praise of Kevlar/ZX hybrid!!!

    Ashridge isnt wrong. Ashaway and TW does not sell plain Kevlar in their Crossfire ZX Hybrid packs, the Kevlar in the Crossfire ZX hybrids are Kevlar + PTFE. The Crossfire with Syngut crosses do have plain Kevlar in them, but they dont have ZX. So the cheapest option to get plain Kevlar/ZX, is...

    Tips for getting grommets in?

    I can get all the grommets seated except for the top 2 at 12 o clock. Its a capped grommet and I added lead under the bumper at 12. I've tried pushing the racquet from the handle downwards against a carpet but the top 2 grommets just for some reason don't seat. Could it be the lead tape? What...

    Determining my optimum swingweight??

    Finding your optimum SW is not easy. I have tried SW's ranging from 320-360. From my personal experiences, its difficult to say how high of a SW you can go without it being laborious. Its actually easier for me to know if a SW is too low because it takes more effort to get the ball deep as...

    Gut/Poly hybrid for 16x19 Pure Strike (ProjectOne 7)?

    Ironically enough this is also the first I've heard someone say the P07 is one of the most comfortable racquets they've played with. To each their own I suppose but in terms of comfort I much rather play with the classic head racquets. Now in terms of the racquet as a whole, I do agree that...
