I know but I have a bad feeling about this.
I don't sense anything.

;) :)

Obi-Wan Kenobi: I have a bad feeling about this.

Qui-Gon Jinn: I don't sense anything.

Obi-Wan: It's not about the mission, Master. It's something... elsewhere. Elusive.

Qui-Gon: Don't center on your anxieties, Obi-Wan. Keep your concentration here and now, where it belongs.

Obi-Wan: But Master Yoda said I should be mindful of the future.

Qui-Gon: But not at the expense of the moment. Be mindful of the living Force, young Padawan.
Sorry, couldn't resist.

Remembered a guy has 10 UT now I really understand him.
Haha, thanks - I feel (slightly) less crazy hoarding them now.... After reading this thread yesterday I grabbed #11 NOS from the 'bay. I usually don't buy so many examples of the stick I'm playing at the time but had a hunch they wouldn't be around for long. The vast majority of players (not constantly reading TTW 8-B ) have zero clue what a platform racquet, or even a pro stock frame is. Most buyers found the UT too light and lacking power - which is true, *before* you mod it. Once I duplicated the weight and balance (best I could with Wilson QC) of my previous RF97s used for years, I greatly prefer it to the Fed stick... My $0.02, it feels like attributes of my older frame (Six.One 95 18x20) blended with the RF97.

Funny thing, first session hitting with the UT, I felt "ball pocketing" very clearly but quickly got used to it and can't detect that sensation anymore...

I do want to get a real H19 for the collection, and to try and feel the layup/material differences between it and a retail UT, but just can't afford/rationalize buying and using several prostocks @~$300-400 each VS the 100-130 each I paid for new UTs... Between liveball and doubles, my sticks can get beaten up - prostocks are IMHO to hang on the wall/collect, not destroy playing 3-5 times per week.

I had hoped the Ultra Pro would be an H22 mold - not because I want to switch but it would be cool for Wilson to release two different prostock molds to the public... Very interested to see what the Ultra Pro really is...

My Wilson rep confirmed no Ultra Pro in the US. Plus no sign of it in the 2020 US catalogue. If it’s a H22 it would be tempting.
Well that is odd. USA is one of the biggest markets... that plus the fact that it will supposedly be available right across the border makes this... how do I put it...

I was told March 1 in the US
I heard March too but there will be marketing out before the launch. like always, shouldn’t find any pics or materials around yet, least you get a nice note to take them down.

I am new here.......Absolutely love the Ultra racquet - and am stressed at the new possible changes.....Can a couple of you guys - again - go over exactly what and why the changes are being made - and what racquet sizes will be offered???? I thought it was by far the best racquet of the recent offerings - along the RF pro staff (just a tad heavy for me) - even the Clash......hate they are messing with it - I have 3 of them.....
