I agree totally .LGLeconte...I agree totally. I‘m turning 60, and play mostly with a seriously old PT280 with a 630 backup (MIAs). For some reason the 280 gives me a little more pinpoint accuracy than the 630, especially on serves (maybe a touch stiffer). I customized them to match at 360g, 335SW, 32bal. I sometimes use my old PS85 SVs when all the stars align with my footwork, timing, vision, etc. (P85s are sniper rifles if the conditions are right). Also still have and use real (old) POGs as well. When I’ve lent any of these to a 4.5/4.0 30-something or millennial, they hit hilariously late and short, or shank frame trying to Rafa it, or dump it into the bottom of the net. Usually they stare at the racket and ask, “how can you hit with this, this, this, THING?” I have yet to find anyone under 50 who will give a classic player racket a serious tryout over a few weeks or months. I bought a few nextgen rackets on various whims, and I play with them on occasion, but only when I’m feeling ridiculously lazy or hungover, and want to pretend I can still generate serious RHS (which I can’t really do any more for longer than a set, without taking massive anti-inflammatories). I can still swing long OR fast, just not long and fast. If I have to pick between the two, swinging long strokes (with heavier racket) but slower RHS is easier on my bod. So I think heavy, low RA rackets are perfect for us old geezers, provided we have a lifetime of tennis in our bones. I will probably buy at least one of these PT2.0s (without a demo) if the TW and you TTW gurus say they have ANY kind of a retro feel. I’ve demo’d most of the latest 18x20 offerings also, but I haven’t fallen in love with any one enough to buy. When my 280 cracks, or my body can no longer wield a 360g warclub, I’ll ask for advice and spend another 3 months doing demos.
Some young players don't understand that these are our racquets.
I also use besides the pt630, ps85, max200g, pt600, rt630, f200carbon, pk ba98, pro cynetic1 and many other classics especially head.
I am not able to play with the current ones: they do not give me precision or feel.
