    Switched to the Pentacore 102 recently, has the softness of the Prince Phantom but with some power the Prince lacks.

    Does it still come with the customisation kit because it's a bit too light in stock form for me.

    is it 12oz like the original? I wonder why they're not selling it to the public.. i remember they had a couple promos/contests about them but that was it...

    nothing comes WITH it but I see they sell the butt caps that are 10 grams heavier than standard. The grommets don't look like they would accommodate those slide-on hoop weights Donnay used to offer.

    guess they are not, I had wait about 5 months over that stated time they said they would have them to us. not sure how many where made, but only 7 wins...plus because of the delay , all was offered to have any frame free instead.
    so I bet some of 7 took the offer....some nut has it on fleabay for 1,500 bucks...dumb..

    Hey bluenote I own both. Let me know if you have anything specific in mind.

    They are very different from each other in terms of the frame.
    102 being really whippy because it's so thin. Not super headlight or anything but it is quite thin. It's around 11oz

    The allwood is like 10.6? I'll have to weigh it again can't remember. I was very surprised how easy it played with.

    Thanks, i considering in purchase a Penta 102, wondering if the Penta 102 is a stable frame weighting only 295grs.. what do you think will be the swing weight with the 10g but cap instaled and the frame strung?

    It's pretty solid. I'd guess around 315.
    I leaded the hoop a tiny bit just because the frame is pretty flexy. Feel free to DM me if you want.
