    Perhaps part of my reticence with Angell is the sneaking suspcion that Id like the TC95 better in 18x20. Most of my sticks over the years have been 18x20 and the X feel pro 95 is a 16x19 that plays like an 18x20 in a lot of ways. Ok someone tell me this. How powerful is the Angell TC 95 16x19 compared to the Toutek Prestige Pro? (I used to have one just wished it had a lower flex like the TC95)

    Also how does the tc95 18x20 compare to the Presige IGMP? I used that stick before I went to the x feel pro 95. Also verycurious abouit thetextreme... Id write an extensivereview if I could get my hands on Angell or old Vantage demos

    I have an old Vantage 18x20 going cheap but I guess the postage cost would be prohibitive assuming that you are in the States?

    Bump!

    How does TC95 compare with RF97? Anyone tried both?
    Thanks.

    Lol... see how long it took me to get an Angell?

    Well the two sticks are really dissimilar in execution but similar in effect.

    The RF has plow but is simply not flexy enough for me... the TC95 has more maneuverability and returns better. Both serve great but the TC95 has higher spin potential (I use the flexy RA63, RA58 strung version).

    Basically I feel like the RF is s a serving bulldozer. The TC 95 is a more complete frame... here's my in depth review: http://tt.tennis-warehouse.com/index.php?threads/angell-tc95-16x19-flexy-shakedown.553138/

    Thank you... admittedly I am a professional writer but I never write about tennis professionally (I like the lazy, half-arsed and anonymous forum here... I use it to warm up). Funny thing is my first inkling was by winning a Kswiss essay contest about tennis shoes when I was 13.

    Fun fact... I met David Foster Wallace when I was in college (when he wasnt famous). I had just come from the courts and was wearing tennis gear... he stopped me and we talked about tennis.

    Search the official Angell thread. From what has been mentioned there, TT95 is a lot less stable and powerful than TC95 and TC95 was preferred overall.

    I'm torn between the TC 90 and Angell 95 .Very tough choice, for my first Angell.
    Trying to wonder what idd love to use more.
    Right now I'm about. 60-40 towards the 90,Love my mids
    The thought of an 95 with a low powered multi set-up and a foam core has me drooling as well.

    This thread isn't as active as the official Angell one and This question has been discussed countless times there, just use search button.

    TC90 is a very good choice for you then.
