    Vintage racquet stringing help!

    Hello fellaz, I got very string job pleasant order today: to string vintage Snauwaert Lady Caravelle racquet. It is supposed to be the wedding day present for one top 30 WTA player who is abut to get married. It looks like 18x19 pattern, but I am not sure as outside crosses does not seem to be...

    what do you think of new tour and pro lines of Angell? Are they just custom version fixed at specific predefined set-up or is it a different beast?

    first - I think if this is Angell most HL position, there will be no empty hole for weight in the hairpin to move weight in. do what tekeyway recomends - open just butcap door and you will find foam filled space in the pallet: I would not play with silicone, just push some thin plate of lead...

    must be my bad english or your troubles with written text understanding - I am not oposing what Paul said to you - I just tried to explain there is no contradiction on what he said and what i wrote to you. I give up, must be my english, I am off to hit with Angell instead of evAngellism

    I see nothing wrong on what you wrote. But at the same time as you load weight on that point you are increasing static weight AND headlightness of the setup. all makes sense to me

    I think you are wrong here: it is function of these two. What you say Paul said is just the fact that as he increases the weight, he is moving it more to the handle e.g. making it more headlight. By this compensation overall SW stays give or take same. Lighter racquet are less headlight, heavier...

    I am not an expert either - there are thousands of them on TT so they will surely come to help us, but I cannot think up anything else what should change SW apart from this two variables

    well let's not make it too complicated: SW is function of weight and balance right? unless you want some extreme setup you can play with weights in 4 holes to get it where you want - if you have a look at Angell tennis web there is configurator and you see ehre it can get you. if not enough -...

    well, this was my first customization job to be fair, and I am not typical DIY person either. It is not that complicated as the hairpin has slots for square weights. just calculate and fiddle a bit but only complication was I had to buy upholster stapler for 7 Eur or so in the hardware shop. I...

    I disagree: Angell are custom to some extent - they are not tailor made to your specific order. And - what is excellent - their weight holding system in hairpin is very practical to play around with them and get it to specification you would like to have. Much better than tuning retail racquet...

    I customized my first TC97 from 352g to 327g (all inclusive) and got balance of 325mm. Two lead weight out of four possible in bottom holes. BTW there were two different types of lead weight in it: 10g and 14g. Nobody mentioned here - so if it helps anyone it gives more tuning options when...

    well I am not MIT alumni probably to calculate naked hairpin balance and to do try/miss I would have to assembly everything after every weight - even my poor math say it is a lot of combination: with 4 holes it is 4! right?

    it is getting a bit more complicated: there are 4 holes for weight in the hairpin: 1 closer to the head, and three toghether close to the handle butt. I found weight in the separate one and in the bottom one. If Paul is here is there any manual for distribution of the weight to these holes to...

    well, I would order 290g or maybe 300g from Angell anyway. I just took a chance and buy used racquet leaded like this. That what I was asking - if I remove it will I get racket specs and balanced like Angell lightest version? Or another way: do I need to dig for some weight in the hoop too to...

    thanks, if anyone here has TC97 at minimum weight could he/she confirm there is no weight in the holes for this set up - e.g. if I remove all I will have Angell setting for minimum weight as on Angell web configurator - 290g/335 balance (2pts HL)?

    My TC97 is here, so I am officially in the club now. I bought it used from tt member. Here is the trouble: I put it on scale and it is strung, with leather grip 352g. I play with usually with up to 320g strung. I think this will be simply too much for me (I haven't played it yet though). So How...

    It's possible, I have not chance to try old tonic+, however for me it works just fine

    Favorite natural gut

    I tried pre BT7 VS, BT7 VS, but for me difference is not that big whoop. I prefer thin Tonic+ and Pacific classic to fat KLIP or fat Tonic. For me natural gut is heaven and BT7 is not destroyng the feel, but lasts longer which is fine. I am not a pro who can change racquet with umpire's: "new...

    1. find good stringer - reliable one who can keep DT on his string jobs in some reasonable tolerance (like me :D) 2. if it happens the stringbed is too lose you can try to put some stringsavers into it - my experience is it makes it tighter to some extent. It extend the life too

    I ve done it (for myself) when testing different crosses and it died earlier. It is bit of neurochirurgy/John McClane experience when trying to cut knot on crosses without damaging mains.. :) but in real life yes - it is only for people who string for themselves

    what hybrid setup do you mean - if you are not satisfied with tension maintanance of natural gut, nothing will help you there. Anything else will die even earlier.. if it is about saving the buck then yes, natgut hybrid with some durable poly might be way how to get costs down..
