    Question on the Prince Phantom Pro 100P and weight variation

    hi all - hoping to leverage the forum to figure out a weight differential in a couple of PPP100P’s I picked up recently. I bought one through TW when they were on sale a month or two ago and liked it, so picked up another gently used racquet on the Bay. The one i got through TW is strung up...

    Racquet specification weight and grip sizes

    How do manufacturers maintain a racquet's specification weight when the racquet comes in different grip sizes? With bigger grip sizes, there is more material and hence mass at the handle. So to maintain a given specification weight as grip size goes bigger, something has got to give, but what...

    Best option to increase grip size (+1) while preserving bevel feeling and not adding too much weight

    If you had to increase your grip by one size, what method would you chose? Assume your goal is also to keep the original bevel feeling (avoid rounding it too much) and keep the additional weight as low as possible.

    Should I Increase Racket Weight

    I currently have a stock PS90 Blx so that should be about 357g. It's really easy to swing for me (idk why people say it's heavy), so should I increase weight just because I can? Is it better to weigh up the racket as much as you comfortably can, or is there a better strategy to choosing racket...

    Modification / matching Völkl racquets

    Hello fellow TT nuts! As you might or not know by now I'm very fond of the 10 series Volkl racquets, got the Super G 295 myself. I think I've gone through what can be done. Since they have the dampening pin in the handle many think that it's impossible to mod inside the handle. But that's...
