Most powerful 98 16x19 racquet with low launch angle

Pure strike is powerful but launch angle is off the charts , blade 16x19 has a low launch angle but not as powerful. So recommendations?

Pure strikes have 8 mains in the throat just like the blade with extremely similar string spacing. I have both rackets and can easily switch to and from as they have a similar launch angle.

Have you tried Head extreme tour? I am actually between ET and Radical Mp at the moment!
I haven't, but I've heard it's lower powered and also has a more open string pattern, so think the Rad would be more for you. Good pop and one of the most dense 16x19's you can find in a 98 inch frame.

I think this is true, but the ET has a more dense pattern than I think most realize. At least from memory, I think it's dense in the center at the sweet spot, and then more open around that spot.

I tried the extreme tour. It’s a properly nice feeling racquet, but is most certainly not very powerful. Launch angle is low, especially outside the sweet spot (half way up the net, low).

If you're willing to go up to 102 (660) and back in time about 25 years, then ye olde Head Atlantis 660 is a laser cannon.

If the Extreme Tour doesn't work out, I would try the Radical (either MP or Pro, depending on your taste in specs; they are both good). I find the launch angle pretty low. The Dunlop CX 200 also has a low launch angle, but it's not powerful without mods.

Well yeah, low launch angle and not powerful is a remedy for getting owned in every bad defense or slight mishit. Thats why i will try the radical mp and i hope it will be more powerful than ET and Blade 16x19 v7

Volkl c10 pro has a low launch angle for a 16 x19. Aslo the yonex vcore 97 HD play a lot like a 16 x 19 even though it is an 18 x 20.

Ezone 98 is on the more powerful side. Extreme Tour is less powerful than the radical mp, but more powerful than the blade I think. I now use Extreme tour as my main and would switch to radical mp if I find I’m lacking power. I like the feel of extreme tour and the radical doesn’t feel good on off-center hits and it has a small sweet spot due to its dense pattern, so I ended up owning both.

It seems that we enjoy the same type of racket. Do update me if you find a satisfying racket :>

I agree with that. I found the ET to be pretty good on serve, especially. I didn't find it too powerful on groundstrokes, especially when compared to my gravity tours.
