    One handed backhand players, favorite/best rackets?

    I think the question should be split into two distinct ones. Which racquet is good for a OHBH backspin and which one for topspin. My best racquet for backspin was the Head Speed Pro first version, the 335 grams 16x19. As for topspin, even if I am not good at that, I would never use that Speed...

    New Angell K7!!!

    It sounds like you had a K7 from the first batch. I had two from different batches, they played very different. The first one played as you describe, the second one was firmer, more powerful and much more predictable. I got rid of the oldest one and I am still playing the second one. I am...

    I think it mostly depends on the difficulty to try an Angell before buying it. After reading about Angells I bought a used TC100, I liked it, then a used TC95, I liked it better, then a new K7red and a new TC97 18x20. I ended disliking the last one, so I sold it. Now I think I am going to sell...

    I had them, then I sold my TC97 18x20 and kept my K7red and K7lime. The TC97 18x20 and the K7red have opposite features. The former is stiffer, precise, low launch angle, the latter "soft", spinny, high launch angle. K7lime stays in the middle, closer to the red for feeling, closer to the TC97...

    I agree about the K7 lime. I did not have a good experience with the TC97 18x20, I found it too boardy, so when I got the TC95 18x20 and the K7lime I was quite doubtful. I got them out of curiosity - another name of racquetholism - and was pleseantly surprised by the K7lime feeling and...

    Mainly control, but also power and stability.

    Definitely. I sold my first batch K7 red and kept its younger sister. No regrets about that.

    An excellent description. :laughing: I also think that if one of us found his own HG, after some months could decide that actually ... maybe ... who knows ... the newest racquet on sale could even be better. :D

    Did you check your strings weight? I replaced a fb signum pro tornado 1.29 with a fb AK PRO CX 1.30 and my TC95 felt more HL than before.

    I am using Gosen AK PRO CX 16 on my K7 red. I find it spinny and comfortable.

    I didn’t watch the Fabo v Nadal match, what happened?

    That’s panettone. Pennette, plural of pennetta, are this

    Nadal: "One of my worst matches on clay in 14 years !"

    At moments Nadal played as usual. When he was 0-5 0-40 he played some great points because Fognini was suddenly in a hurry. After reaching 5-2 Fognini started again playing patiently, waiting for the right moment to close the point. Then he closed the match.

    Angell TC95 18x20 L3 grip

    How much for the V3?

    Head Velocity

    Much lower, I would like to avoid troubles with elbow and shoulder. 21/20 kg Velocity natural 16 on Angell TC95 and 21/20 kg AK PRO CX 16 on Angell K7 Red, both ones 4 knots. Now I prefer playing with the TC95 but that setting, good for serving and baseline game, is not very good for touch. My...

    Head Velocity

    I have AK Pro CX on a racquet and Velocity on another one, both full beds. I think I prefer the former, but maybe I could try the hybrid. Which tension did you choose?

    Hard to say without tools for measures. Yesterday I used both racquets, but with different strings, even if at the same tension. Velocity 1.30 21/20 on TC95, Gosen AK PRO CX 16 21/20 on K7. If I had to bet, I would say more than 10%.

    They are not very similar. The TC95, even if its RA is 63 vs K7 64, feels more rigid. It is more powerful and its serve is great, much better than K7. On the other hand the K7 is spinnier and has more control and touch.

    Today I started playing with my K7, with a new leather grip and 6 grams of lead at 3 and 9. Total weight 337 grams, for a balance of 32cm. After a while my elbow started to ache. I decided to switch to my TC100, 346 gr., 31cm. The pain decreased and at the end of the two hours of tennis it was...

    That' my experience. I got rid of my older K7 Red because it was too soft, now I am happy with the younger one. Only TC97 18x20, but I did not like it. Maybe the strings, it was a full bed of Velocity 1.30, the racquet felt boardy even if the tension was not much, 21x21 kg, maybe the racquet...
