Because I want to know what YOU think. Generally, midpluses don't have the feel of mids. I'm looking for a midplus with great pop AND great feel. Seems tough to find, and so I'm asking the very well-educated TT forum-goers for their opinions.Corners, why do YOU ask? :shock:
LOL!Pass the can-o-worms!!!
Thanks for your thoughts Fuzz! I know you were also a Rdti 80 man at one point. How does that frame rank in comparison to the Classic, C10 and X10?I have to admit that the good ol' ProStaff 6.1 Classic strung with snug 17 ga. syn. gut was probably the best recipe I've ever enjoyed for ultra-nasty serve and volley singles or heavy doubles action. Nice pop, crisp feel, authority and touch around the net, good maneuverability with a balance at around 10 pts. HL, and PLENTY of gas with 12.8 oz. heft combined with significant backbone.
While feel is a big-time personal thing, I think that the idea of power can be more than just one thing, too. That stiff 'n hefty 6.1 Classic had plenty of zing, but it was easy to spray my strokes from the baseline with it. Now that I have softer, more mellow racquets with some similar weight and balance, I can swing harder and play with more power even though these racquets have less inherent power.
Interesting, thanks Kaiser. I've never really noticed the 4.2. Hard to even find anything about it - not in TW's Racquet Finder.Pro Staff Classic 4.2, what makes it unique is it has plenty of power but it is a controlled power if that makes any sense. Also it has great feel and precision. I think because of how stiff it is makes it that way. The funny thing is even though it is a very stiff frame it does not bother my arm at all. But I would never consider using poly in it.
Second that but is this a poll of currently available racquets? Btw, this is IMHO the best Head racquet, http://www.tennis-warehouse.com/Bos...r_630_Racquet_5_8/descpageRCBOS-BOSPTOUR.htmlI would say C10 pro
kind of low powered thoughPacific X Force Pro. Can generate pace. Touch shots are easy to make. Excellent directional control. Easy on the shoulder and elbow.
I leaded the handles of my Ti 80's to get a little more comfortable HL balance and they came out at least as hefty as the 6.1 Classics. Actually I just checked one - 12.9 oz. with a Tourna Grip. Plenty of power with that degree of heft and also a boatload of spin - more than I'd get with my 6.1's and a LOT more than the C10's.LOL!

It's weird, but I'm hitting harder with the X Force Pro than anything I have. It's just a little on the heavier side, so I usually only play a set with it, though. Maybe it's the string set that helps... IDK...kind of low powered though
This is a tough one though because power = stiffness and stiffness <> feel.
I think the GSpeed MP has a pretty good blend IMO.
Definitely, any midplus goes!Second that but is this a poll of currently available racquets? Btw, this is IMHO the best Head racquet, http://www.tennis-warehouse.com/Bos...r_630_Racquet_5_8/descpageRCBOS-BOSPTOUR.html
You've got quite a stable of racquets there! You need to hire your own private stringerIt's weird, but I'm hitting harder with the X Force Pro than anything I have. It's just a little on the heavier side, so I usually only play a set with it, though. Maybe it's the string set that helps... IDK...
What is the PG 100?I have to put in 2 gems - the Yonex RDIS 200. It has nice power and excellent feel. Also the PK 7G. It has both power and feel as well.
If the new PG 100 had a little more oomph to it, it would be the #1 of all them to me. Now if you like your sticks at 12 ounces or more and added some lead, then this racquet is indeed the GOAT for both traits, IMO.
K Factor 95 with lead at 3 and 9. Any iteration of that racquet, whether the new 6.1 95, all the same specs. The 95 as I described feels like a 90 or 85PS, not quite of course, my goal was to get it to feel like the 85 in a 95 frame. Also RPM blast, man that weight comes through the RPM.
Babolat Pure Storm Tour....Carbon Xtream version IMHO
a 15oz racket if it is weighted right is playable by most able bodied males.So now you do what, powerlifting?
I like this idea of swinging calm and slow and letting the racquet crush the ball in the process.a 15oz racket if it is weighted right is playable by most able bodied males.
I hit with a racket that weight and have one that is over 16OZ. As an out of shape 44 year old, I think anyone could hit with my racket for the most part.
And I have a hammer that is 26oz that I can and do swing. Its a bit tough on the shoulder but I can do 3 sets of 20 for the forehand, backhand, and serve, plus FH and BH slices. Sadly I think most guys are stronger than I am. Lost a ton of muscle mass after 40...
I've seen this on the bay and always wondered about them, but you're the first to recommend it. What did you like about it?Second that but is this a poll of currently available racquets?
