@dr325i please compare the Boom Pro to the ET, thanks.
I like the Boom feedback, and sweet spot moved more up (teardrop shape).
Boom Pro has more power.
Both were easy to adjust to however, it felt that Boom was one of those you just pick up and run with it.
HOWEVER, the one I tested was the Pro stock version (TGT) and customized (so was my ET) so maybe not the best comaprison...

I was able to play with the Boom MP and saw the picture of the Boom Pro with specs at my local shop (can corraborate the provided above^). - 310 static, 98 in, 10 pts HL, 16x19, 22 mm beam

Boom MP has a really odd hoop shape, I thought it would throw me off like the Gravity (never was able to feel comfortable with it due to head shape). Pleasantly surprised with how it played, very easy to use, definitely more like the clash than pure drive, the feel is a on point with a good combination between crisp and muted, found it very underpowered however compared to my ezone tour (343g strung)

mine came in 311 g strung with the new lynx touch, not a huge fan of the string, usually like something stiffer

I'm really exited about the pro, this is shaping up to be a winner - a thinner beam, smaller headsize, great feel
- 310 static, 98 in, 10 pts HL, 16x19, 22 mm beam

very close to the Clash 98, minus the beam size...but 70 RA!

I haven't used the Pro yet, but the MP felt more intuitive than the clash 98, like @dr325i said you really can pick it up and immediately just run with it. I can also say that it feels much softer than the 70 RA would suggest, not as soft as the clash 98, but also with more feel than the clash

@dr325i please compare the Boom Pro to the ET, thanks.
agree mostly with @dr325i - boom has more power, extreme tour has more control, feel is comparable, boom is crisper while the ET pockets the ball more, boom is more intuitive and ready to go out of the box while the ET needs some customization to work right

I own a couple ET and I love them, I will definitely be picking up a boom pro however

They're both my favorite Head rackets right now, and probably ever up with youtek prestige MP and Microgel Radical MP

I’m assuming best case is that it feels like a 65…

It feels softer than my ezone tour (RA = 62). In general I've never found RA to be a good indicator really since the geometry matters a lot too vs the density of the material, but yea I think 65 is a probably a good estimate, it's definitely not soft, but its definitely not stiff either

Boom is NOT 70RA

ET is my current stick. I’ve been all over (Blades, Ezones, Vcores, Pure Aeros) and I keep coming back to the ET. Currently playing it stock (305 gram, 31.5 cm, 285 SW) after experimenting with adding lead to the tip and replacing the weighted buttcap with a standard one. If I have to be hypercritical the sweetspot of the ET is a little low in the hoop as @dr325i mentioned. How do you have yours setup?

i just threw on a leather grip and then some lead at 10 and 2 to raise the sweetspot higher and preserve the original balance (32.5 cm) nothing too fancy

Seems like the infamous Ezone DR 98 has reincarnated into the new Boom Pro?
I have hit the boom pro for the last few days

I have played the boom pro in final paint job for the last few weeks and played dr98 for years. Feels very similar.. between that and clash 98, but like others said above, much more feel. It’s seductive, but can be a launch-y, but I have been played recently with vpro HD and blade pro so that is to be expected. I could switch with little adjustments. Paint job is great and it came strung 53 with new lynx touch. Hard to tell how much I love the racket or strings since I have never played either. Nice pocketing and great noise coming off impact. Both winners

I would definitely echo these sentiments. I’m still not sure on how I am feeling about the new Lynx Touch but I was lucky enough to get 2 so I put my usual setup, Confidential at 52 in one and it feels great.

Yea, it think lynx touch feels good, I suppose kinda similar to triax or Lux smart.. kinda an in between poly and multi.. I noticed notching in it and definite different than lynx tour (which I prefer for the bite and a little extra stiffness)

For those who have played both the new Prestige Pro and Boom Pro, will there be any overlap in the target demographic?

From a Speed MP user, should I try the MP or Pro?
the 22mm beam of the pro intrigues me greatly as a Speed MP user, as do the specs.

But I haven’t even held a Boom in my hand.

edit: if it play similar to a speed (extra power, versitle, access to spin) and does do with a more HL balance and thinner beam, itcould be interesting. Personally, I’m expecting a power stick with less control than the speed.

Pro is an awesome stick and as you mentioned, I was totally surprised how easily I transitioned from the PT57A (16x19) to Boom Pro against a 5.0+ guy...
Hi dr,

what were your specs on the Boom Pro, did you modify it or stock ?

regards
