I wish I knew you 6 months ago when I was in Timisoara every few weeks...
Take care, nice rackets!
love the old heads!
Hopefully this will work for you!
Don't tell me you have an OS!)))
Not sure if my picture worked but I will repost if it didn't. Also it was taken on my phone so sorry its not very good!
Alos need to mention the one on the far left is my girlfriend's racquet I just keep it at my place.
Damn those are fat strings, looks like 13 or 14 gauge. I assume they last 200hrs at least.
No need to create excuses, we don't judge.
Lol, duly noted! But some people on these threads are brutal and I never know who I am dealing with ha!
used to be a Head Radical LM OS, at least what's left of it. LOL
wrapped it up in overgrip tho. a nice racquet to carry around.
Why aren't you using that Rebound Pro? Looks heaps better than the 2 Bahalot racquets on the right.
Any idea how it plays in comparison to the Aerodrive & PD?
HAHA guess what?
LOL! The head's still intact, what happened??
It has a very light feel to it. Sometimes that can be ok, but I got it for my girlfriend to play with and it is bright pink which doesn't look good on me lol. It does have a sturdy frame for its light feel though. Very quick swing speed. TW says that the racquet was pretty much made with the female player in mind. Tonight I will try hitting with it and see how it feels myself and I will get back to you on it and let you know how it goes.
i have hit with the rebound pro also and its actually a very good frame. easy acess to power and spin. not too heavy but hefty enough. the only issue why i did not stick with it is becuse its too stiff
Thought I would post this
What is the racquet on the far left? That thing looks like a 2x4!
Oh, its a Dunlop Max 200G (Steffi Graf, John McEnroe, etc...).
Yeah i would pretty much agree with all of that...actually a pretty powerful stick for trying to be all girly and whatnot!
Not all me stuff but most of it, the important bits anyway. I'm on an odyssey of string.
love the yonexs
haha i was more just rewording what you said i wish it wasnt so stiff; id pick up 1 to hit with
If that one on the right didn't have the Wilson decals on it, I'd think it was a Babolat. Is it trying to cap the Pure Drive market?
The Juice 100 is spec'd about like the APDGT or PDGT, so yeah, I'd say so.
1 x Wilson BLX Pro Open 2012 - Babolat Pro Hurricane Tour 17 @ 25/24 kg
1 x Babolat Pure Drive Cortex - Babolat Pro Hurricane Tour 17 @ 25/24 kg
what are those black yonexs?
I agree it seems Wilson has tried to make the juice as like the aeropro as possible! Have not had the chance to play with it yet but hope i will!
How does it compare to the aero?
My current tennis gear:
Vcore 89 Tours replacing the RQ1500long- yep big generation gap since I stopped playing for a while. The 89T PJ called for matching shoes, so I got a red pair of GR4s from Japan
Hi what is your favorite string out of them so far? i am on a string search for the perfect poly so it is interesting to see what people like the best
Wow some really nice rackets!
But what is your favorite string out of them so far? i am on a string search for the perfect poly so it is interesting to see what people like the best
sorry for being unclear in my previous post i meant which of the strings du you like the most
RDS 001 Tours.
I got you the first time
I'm still very early in the search. I've only tried Tour Biter 18 and Black Code 18. I'm very impressed with the Black Code, it's got amazing controlled ball pocketing that I had no idea existed. The TourBite doesn't have the pocketing but it's still very nice and I've only used it for 90min or so. The Black Code has 4hrs on it, it's still very good and I will play with them until they're dead/snap.
rds oo1 was bright yellow?
I've got those too. One of them is in the pic.
My humble racquet collection.
I had the pro staff BLX 6.1's original replacement grip changed to leather and it plays great.
Box frame racquets are my choice. It just feels and good!
The Pure Drives IMO are like wild horses. Tons of power and not easy to control. String tensions has to be always be within a small range to play good.
My new acquisitions, 2 K90's in great shape
at what tension do you usually string them?
BLX 6.1 Pro Staff 94 using Full bed Pro Supex Ultimatum Spin @ 48lbs.
Pure Drive using Full bed Pro Supex Ultimatum Spin @ 52lbs.
wher can i arquie these rare 94's, on a more serious not can you tell me which is your main racquet and your thought on the pro staff and pure drive, thanks!
It's a 95, sorry for the typo.
My main racquet now is the pro staff.
Good control with nice touch and feel pretty much sums it up.
Pure Drive has good power and spin but too powerful at times especially when the string tension drops after a few sessions of play. The stiffness is pretty hard to get use to. Just got em to try out but didn't like it very much.
The pro staff is my fav stick at the moment.
okay thanks, the PS95 is one of the 2 racquets I am looking at now, have heard the power level is too low though, maybe lead tape will fix this issue
Are those Yonex RDS 001's ?
looks so to me
