Phantom Pro 100P setup

#1
Hi all,
I've been playing with PCG 100 for some time and wanted to switch to the new phantom pro 100P, in between frames I've played some time with a leaded up Ezone 98 (matching the PCG weight and balance). So right now, I am enjoying the PP100P feel although is not as solid and comfortable as the PCG however I get more easy points with the Ezone (more power and spin).

As I really like the princes as compared to the ezone is more comfortable, has better feel, also paintjob is better, which string/ tension would you suggest?

I currently have the PP100P with tour bite/ sensation @50, the Ezone with Hiper G @50.

Thanks

If you want more power and spin with the Phantom 100P, add some lead at 12 O'clock (4gms) and go to Hyper-G at 45 lbs.

I've been experimenting with mine. Currently, I have YPTP in 17 at 48 in mine, but I have also added about 9 grams distributes between 12, 3 and 9 and about 9 grams in the butt cap. Easing my way up to my 93P specs. It does play much, much better.

Hi all, I've tried adding 4 grams total at 3 & 9, still I get more deep and plow with the Yonex.
I am a little frustrated as I prefer the feel and comfort of the prince but I play better with the Yonex...:oops:
Maybe should go for the textreme tours 100p or the phantom with ports...

For plow you should target 10 and 2 or even 12, although 12 becomes a pain when getting restrung. It takes more weight at 3 and 9 to get the same effect with less weight at the other spots. I tried weight at 3 and 9 and much prefer the upper hoop locations. 3 grams total at 10 and 2 gave me a noticeable boost in power and plow.

Big surprise. Most players these days come from the light stiff world where they honed their strokes on these types of frames and take time to adjust to the heavier softer frames that are actually easier on their arm.

Do you make money at tennis? If not then the racket you play better with is irrelevant if its going to cause pain. Feel and comfort is the primary concern to a rec player and TBH it's a big concern to pros as well. You don't find very many pros at all playing light stiff sticks. Overwhelming majority are in the 12-14 oz range with RA's in the 55-65 range. The thing about pros is they have plenty of power from their technique. They need control and feel.

Rec players want pro power and they prefer to get it from the racket rather than lessons since that's cheaper and easier. But it comes at a price.

Anyway, enough ranting. Put lead in the upper hoop of your phantom, not at 3 and 9. And lower your string tensions. Until you've done that there is no sense continuing your racket hunt. The Phantom with ports and Textreme Tours also need lower tensions and a little weight at the end of the hoop.
