I still have a few Beckers that are in great shape and I have yet to find anything that would lure me away from them. When I am playing on a regular basis, it is the most dependable, no surprises frame I have ever owned. My question is to those players who also loved the Melbourne in the past,: What frame are you using today? Anybody still using the Becker Melbourne as their main frame? I have demoed a ton of frames over the last year and have yet to find anything that compares in comfort, power, spin and playability.

Take a look at the Blade v7 98 line. Definitely plays like super plush frame with power and spin on tap if you can generate some good racquet head speed.

Have you tried a Power Bridge 10 MP?

I have a volkl PB 10 mid that I enjoy hitting with, but I don't think I'd use it in match play, unless I was playing a lot.

BB London Tour, which is the smaller sibling of Melbourne. It has a more uniform and more consistent string bed (no recessed grommets) and it is more plush and comfortable. Trying them side by side convinced me not to keep my Melbournes.

The BB London is a great frame and is a bit more user-friendly over the Melbourne due to the more open string pattern and lower static weight.

To be clear i was referring to London Tour which is more or less the Melbourne in a smaller head size, and it was supposed to be named Melbourne Tour.
The London (non tour) is quite a bit different from Melbourne and London Tour.
