Real Prestige Mid in Davis Cup action back in 2016
The short lived Graphite Pro TF from the first half of 1989. The second half of 1989 it was replaced by the the Graphite Pro TF with Power Wedge. They look the same except the Power Wedge version gets wider at the top of the hoop. Mine is staright beamWhaaat am I looking at?
I just thought: they're even more than last Mohicans, they're last Redskins*; next generations are blackIt's why I call IG mids "last Mohicans"...
Racial jokes like that are frowned upon in United States....and it doesn't even make sense, few actual Indians played football.I just thought: they're even more than last Mohicans, they're last Redskins*; next generations are black
(*) I'm not native english speaker so I'm not sure if this is offensive term or not. Anyway no offense intended.
Sorry, I can't see it as racial joke.Racial jokes like that are frowned upon in United States....and it doesn't even make sense, few actual Indians played football.
few vikings, panthers, Bucs, Raiders or w/e played football either...Racial jokes like that are frowned upon in United States....and it doesn't even make sense, few actual Indians played football.
yay!Been out of the TTW loop for bit because I don’t want to feed my “racquetholism” just yet cause I just stocked up on IG Prestige Mids a few months ago.
Yes! Spot on. That is a piece of overgrip! Head butt caps do not have the most noticeable “flare,” so I use a tacky over grip OR 1/4 of an inch of athletic tape to flare my rackets’ butt caps. I’ve used both and I prefer the former because of habit, but both work fine.
I cut right in the middle (through the entire length of the OG) then tightly wrap it around the butt cap covering the edges so it wouldn’t dig through my palm when I hit. I do three wrap arounds then a 1/2 overlap before doing another three wrap arounds and repeat the process until I finish the entire length of the OG for a more tapered feel.
Try out different lengths when you flare your butt cap because it will slightly alter how you hold your racket and how you will hit.
Same beam.Are there some variances in the thickness of the Prestige frames? It looks like both the TXP Pro and the IGPM have the same thickness, whereas the Prestige Classic 600 (*Designed in Austria) looks thinner by a millimeter or two. Maybe there are some variances between the US and Austria designed frames. They all feel, including the IG version, incredible.
I find 90sq-in racquets arent as small as one would initially think. Its like there is a tendency to think of them as 85 or smaller
