That Solinco a looks like a i.Radical MP.....
plays rather similar as well
i was actually thinking which racket to compare it to but that is probably the closest
a few better shots of the 5 TGK238.1
a couple never hit PT57a looking pretty sweet
i like the flexpoint PJ because there is no code / no sticker on the inside of the throat. pretty cool.
^ I'm so jealous of all those Pro Stocks.. let me know if you're willing to sell any.
we should just rename this thread "Kal-El's F*** You" thread
hey now i can stop posting pictures if anyone is getting angry
heading out for the night... anyone ever order a Bjorn Borg tequilla shot at the bar?
if not here is how it goes. you need salt, tequilla, and a lime
1) snort the salt
2) take the tequilla shot
3) throw the lime in the air and serve it at your bartender...
always a good one
oh yea i still have 3 of these bad boys. sadly 1 was broken in action. Blake Mold
Tequila is a dangerous mistress! Hahaha!
No one is angry; it just seems you have a lot of gear, and good gear on the top of that.
I used to be good. I also know a lot of people still playing or that did play. Real good chance I am hitting the pro stock mother load in late march. Will def. Keep everyone posted if it all works out
so the fxp prestiges are mid plus??? 5/8 grip right
I went down to a 1/2 grip actually just recently.
All the flex point and liquid metals are paintjob pt57a. All 4matched and all 4 and 1/2 grip. Look closely you can see the flex point holes and the Liquid metal is just painted k. There not really there.
The microgels are tgk283.1 matched to the same specs and grip size
did you just post those to entice me?
We should send these pictures to Head, and remind them that this is what a Prestige Mid/600 looks like.
Why are you still posting? Weren't you supposed to close your account today?!?
haha j/k of course!
Great pics everyone
haha thanks man. i love the old school head PJ
I think the glossy PJ Pro Ones Blake Molds are some of the best looking rackets I've held too. The quality of the PJ there is beautiful IMO
yea i know i was just saying fxp for reference point. 1/2................gah i need one lol
I only have one racquet, so nothing to brag on there. Still have a spending problem though...
sadly i had to part with a few of the pt57a. no worries though. the player who sent me these found 5 more in his basement which came in today JACKPOT
So starting from the left to right, Head Flexpoint heat (My friend has left me this racket one day to look after and well he just stopped playing tennis so i guess its mine, kinda a piece of crap, hasn't been restrung in god knows how long, feels like hitting with a plank of wood, Wilson Ncode 95 (Justine Henin's racket or painjob lol back in 2005-2006, Wilson nsixone 95 NCODE 2005-2006, Babolat Aero Pro Drive GT 2011 model, Babalot Pure Drive GT 2012 model, Wilson k tour team fx, 2009, bought this cause it didn't look too bad and was on sale, had no idea it was 102 square inches though and its a little too light (290 grams strungweight) the girlfriend now uses it though, Prince 03 Speedport pro white, 2009-2010, bought it and within a week the strings broke and i have never had it restrung before, but will definitely soon, apparently its a very comforting frame and i have arm pains
I've also thrown away 3 rackets since 2008, and they were, Babolat NS Drive (I'd be amazed if anyone has heard of this one), Head liquidmetal prestige (the one safin used in 2004-2005 and lastly a cheap old Prince racket which was my very first one i bought in 2005
It looks a bit HEAD-heavy, your collection :twisted:
...I should fool around with HEADs a bit more...
HEADs you win, tails you lose^ :twisted:
PS 85 gettin dipped:
THough with the kevlar, the poly, and the dense pattern I am betting it doesnt feel or play like 25lbs.
Honestly I want to try lower, like 15.
The racket though doesnt like the low tensions. It get weird vibes. Every racket has a lower tension where this happens. 23 was dreadful with the same string combo. though it played ok it felt horrible.
Went to 32/27 today with Kev/Monogut zx and it didnt have that vibe issue nearly as much.
damn. i may have to experiment.
my more recent collection...
nice. are those princes on the right?
yep, they sure are. 1 POG 110 4 stripes, 2 POG 90 4 stripes. The 2x 90 I picked up when i swung by TW one time. They were sitting on the shelf by their lonesome needing a home.
from TW???? very nice! i really need to make a trip
new test subjects
They look like Luxilon....
similar look and feel out of the package to say adrenaline rough...
interested to see how it plays
i am glad solinco is getting bigger
I love Solinco as a brand - I use Tour Bite and their overgrips regularly.
TB dies somewhat abruptly though; it's not like balls start spraying or anything and you simply lose control. Forget to restring and you really feel it in your arm.
Well what do we have here
i actually prefer revolution, but yea
yea............i cant look at this thread any more
came home last night and found my cat asleep in the hoop of the 57e. didnt know whether to think it was acceptable or if the cat now has to go haha
ultimate craigslist find today.. anybody care to guess what I paid for the whole bunch?
