    Prince Textreme Beast 100

    I read that and I believe it. It’s a nice evolution for the Warrior. I like the 16x18 pattern slightly better. But again, there’s not much between them.

    Prince Textreme Beast 100

    Focusing on your legs is always the best option. The VS8 I got in the same demo box with the Beast 100. I really like it. It is firmer than the Beast 100 and Warrior but I didn’t sense it was harsh. Unfortunately, TW strung it with a multi, so I’m not certain how full poly would feel. If I...

    Prince Textreme Beast 100

    Another few hours of practice and a club match in and still I don’t think there’s a discernible difference between the Beast 100 & Textreme Warrior. Did a lot of serves and some volley drills. If both these racquets were blacked out I’d be throwing a guess out there in terms of correctly...

    Prince Textreme Beast 100

    I’ve got a TW demo of the Beast 100. From first few hours of practice with it I find that it’s a slightly refined version of the Textreme Warrior 100. Same great playability. Comfort is maybe slightly better. Control, again, maybe a half-tick better. Power is the same. I find it to be just...

    Prince Textreme Beast 100

    Got a demo in the way. Going to play it alongside the textreme warrior 100. I’m curious to see if the twaron makes any discernible difference in feel or performance.

    Need advice on setting the Lineup

    ...and I've seen enough CO's with those 'tactics' books on their shelves and yet in today's practice some were still clueless.

    Need advice on setting the Lineup

    No thanks. I was out of the 184th Ordnance battalion out of Fort Stewart, GA. Was in Kuwait 1991-1992. I've seen enough of that region in my estimation.

    DONNAY vs. ANGELL

    I ordered my fourth (and most likely final) Pro One Tricore and it was an adventure getting to me. I moved since my last order but I indicated my new address twice. Donnay's rep emailed me and told me they didn't have my grip size. I agreed to get a different grip size. Rep emails me again...

    Donnay / XeneCore

    yeah. they are only available on the website and possibly a few local shops here and there. I've had some good and not so good dealings with them since they've stopped being widely distributed through TW and other national retailers. There's nothing bad with the actual racquets themselves...

    Donnay Pro One 97 users club

    When did Donnay start using weights in the handle/pallet??? Haven't had that issue with any of my Donnays. From the old X series to the new Pro Ones. Let us know what you find.

    Do pro golfers clubs

    I meant to say same would be true for most pro golfers. You could order from Miura and a few other companies that hand forge clubs but you still will have a hard time obtaining exactly what some pros get.

    Donnay Pro One Gt's- They're Back! Xenecore

    I'm happy to report that Barbara at Donnay came through and delivered for me. 2 working days after we communicated about what I wanted to exchange my GT Pro One for my new Tricore arrived. It came in a professional looking box, wrapped, plastic'd, and even an insert card in the hoop. To my...

    Donnay Pro One Gt's- They're Back! Xenecore

    The differences for me are subtle. Most people probably wouldn't notice. My tricore's are 305g 315balance, the GT was 310g, 315balance. I felt I could maneuver the Tricore a little better. The GT also had slightly more pop than the Tricore so I hit long initially. I could have adjusted to...

    Flying under the radar? Yonex Ezone DR100

    The DR 100 is way underrated and doesn't get enough love. Out of the 100" head, 300g unstrung weight club its in my top two along with the new Prince Warrior.

    Do pro golfers clubs

    Yes. For example, Tiger's 'Nike' clubs are not made by Nike in their factory with their retail clubs. they are handmade by Katsuhiro Miura, or one of his sons/apprentices, then stamped with Nike badges. Of course just like in tennis, you can also have handmade/forged golf clubs by the same...

    Donnay Pro One Gt's- They're Back! Xenecore

    I got a phone call, email and text message from Barbara after I sent my GT back for a Tri-Core. Hopefully I'll get what I've been holding out hope for soon.

    Best pure syn gut frames?

    A solid 4.0 lefty i play with all the time only uses syn gut. For many years in his Dunlop 300 Tour series racquets and even now after he switched to the Head Speed MPA.

    In praise of Textreme

    Yeah. I don't have the kinda $$$ to drop on Bianchi CV. The entry level model is $5k and it tops out at $12k!! Being a racquet-holic is nowhere near as expensive as being a bike-a-holic! Textreme is used mainly to strengthen carbon/graphite lay ups. I think Prince hit the sweetspot in...

    Felt F4X! I agree about the Prince Japanese models. I still have no idea why they won't release a limited run of some of these in the US.

    In praise of Textreme

    Good eye! That's what's pictured though I actually got a F4x cuz it's a little cheaper and it will be my first CC bike. The 4x does have textreme in the carbon layup. Main difference between the 3x & 4x is drivetrain. I heard Wilson's new racquets will be using Countervail in their layup...

    Donnay Pro One Gt's- They're Back! Xenecore

    I wish I had some suggestions for you. I've had a similar ordeal trying to return & exchange some Pro One GT's. I texted a number given to me after contacting them through Facebook messenger (they responded within 30 mins). The response from the text message was to send the racquet to an...

    We should crowd fund a hostile takeover of the company and put you in charge! Love those ideas. The Kennedy legacy lives on!

    In praise of Textreme

    I really enjoy the Textreme line from Prince. I've hit with the 100T and the Warrior and both were really good racquets. @kimguroo hooked me up with a Warrior version from Asia and it's fantastic! I dig the feel of Textreme so much my new 'cross bike has textreme in the construction!

    A++ for Baseline13

    Worked out a trade with @Baseline13 and I have nothing but good things to say. He shipped fast. I got exactly what he described. No surprises. He threw in some extras to make the deal even better. I wouldn't hesitate to trade or buy from Baseline13 again!
