Arm friendly 100 sqin 300g

#1
Hi,
I’m looking for a new frame in the 300g 100sqin range that would be as arm friendly as possible and still loaded with spin and power.
A few months ago I decided to wait for the new Prince Beast 100 (no ports) and the new Volkl V Feel 8 300, since you told me their predecessors were good choices. However, I’m not sure these racquets are really arm friendly, especially the Volkl, that you described as stiffer than the previous itération.
What would you suggest?

Thanks for your suggestion
However I heard it was not as comfortable as the AI 100 and I’m not feeling really attracted by Yonex, though I know it is a great brand

I would look at ported beast 100 due to the high ra on the line. Pretty sure the 100 solid beam is 69 as well as the ported. Ported should make the frame very very comfortable if you dont mind getting used to the feel.

I will probbaly buy the 100 ported one for my griflriend or the ported 98. I was thinking phantom ported as it looks sweet but she may not like the thinner beam. I would hit with these ported ones if I had elbow or bad shoulder issues. Thankfully I just have wrist and will go with a 93P.

You could look toward the phantom line if you can produce your own power. P100P is 59, ported 56 and P100 is 54. This line has to be the most arm friendly 100s on the market in current production and they look sweet.

Also dr100 should be around so could look at that as many people dislike the new Ezone line feel.

I suggest demo, you may love ports if you havent used them before or hate, but better to be safe when dealing with injuries.

Bumping this thread.
@TW team:
I’m looking for a new frame in the 300g 100sqin range that would be as arm friendly as possible and not too low powered? Any recommandation in the recent offering?

I ended up ordering a Prince Beast Pro 100. Unfortunately TW does not sell Prince to people in Canada, so I had to find a Canadian dealer, which I did. I should receive my Beast in a couple of days. Then I will post my feedback on this frame.

Oh really?
I asked you a couple of months ago and it was not possible so I did not ask again.
Like so many tennis enthusiasts (euphemism for racket addict) I really value your advice and participation to this forum, so if I knew I would have ordered it through TW website.
Anyway, good to know for the future!
That said, forgive me to add that the racquet dealer I reached was extremely kind and helpful too ;)

BillKid,

Fyi for shipping under international it still lists Prince as something that TW cannot ship to Canada. Perhaps this needs to be updated. A little of the original topic but will TW ship Nike to Canada?

For future reference, we are now able to ship Prince to Canada and Australia!

Thanks,
Brittany, TW

I know you said no Yonexs but the Vcore Pro 100 300g is more arm friendly than the Ezone, worth a demo of each at least! Both 16x19 so plenty of spin potential...

Try any of the new Prince Phantom frames all. Are wonderful combinations of elbow loveliness, control and power.

There is consensus that Phantoms are very low powered and extremely flexy. Unfortunately that is not what I like although it maybe the most arm friendly choice.
I ended up with a Beast pro 100 that I just received yesterday.
