Angell V3 95 - 16x19

slal1984

Semi-Pro
I got these Angell 95's yesterday and took them out for a hit: 320g, 310, 70RA 4 3/8 - B - SW 320-325.
Strung: Cyclone 18/firestorm 1.25 - 54/53 and Cyclone 18/micronite 1.30 - 55/54

Im all about 95's....the 95D, YTPP, bio 200 lite are a few i have used for a while, most of my comparison is based off of that YPPT, It is more stable, more spin and hits a way heavier ball. Small sweet spot or (hot spot)

Stable: I was great at net, the low volleys were so easy to dig out, could really hit deeper and more penetrating balls. On my forehand, i took some time to adjust to the launch angle, and it does have a smaller and lower sweet spot than the YPPP. I loved it on my backhands, gave me some more margin over the net and also allowed me to step in and flatten out balls as well. low balls were easier to flick and deep flat balls were easier to block back. Once again, did take some time find the sweet spot. Im still dialing in my slice but it looks promising.

Spin: its there all day, everyday, you really notice it on low volleys at the net.

Dislikes: I feel it has a hot spot or a small sweet spot and massive amounts of power there compared to outside that area. But i think that will just take some time getting used to.

Tweaks
- Lead 2g at 3 and 9. only to increase the sweet spot. May try some at 12.
- Switched strings to cyclone black 18/rs lyon 1.25 55/54.

Hopefully, the combination of upping the tension, using stiffer string and some lead will open the sweet spot and help dial in the power some.

Lower tension to open up sweet spot, not the other way.

Try putting the lead tapes at 10 and 2 instead of 3 and 9.
