Discussion in 'Racquets' started by POGO, Jun 2, 2005.
do they play comfortably? i.e. softish and arm freindly?
Hmm, wonder if you took the last 4 5/8 on TW...
I bought some of the Moto/Glide packs that were on sale, they came out to be 25% cheaper tahn just buying the Glide by itself. The picture racquet is using Moto 17 in the mains, which is a pretty good string. Glide is not a poly it is super stretchy and while stringing it really stretches. I feel like it adds power and softness to the stringbed. As a cross string with Moto, comparing Glide to iO 16 its a livelier bed, with as much spin and if I have less directional control it is marginal. At any rate, the Moto/ Glide string combo flies forward with nasty spin. I have had hitting partners shanking and also standing there and watching the ball go by. I am going to use some of the other Glide half sets with some Poly Force 17 next.
With the weight, yes they play pretty softly (on my arm at least). Without weight it was a little taxing on contact.
The cat looks hungry. :lol:
That cat is posed next to synthetic gut because it's about to become natural gut
this cat will be later be in the production of cat gut
I see what you did there.
This is the coolest collection I have ever seen. I know I am not supposed to ask but how much would it take to buy it from you?
You play tennis too !! Dr Evil
If I were him, I wouldn't sell the caboodle.
TW's reissued Muscle Weave 200g frames with TW leather. Haven't restrung them yet. Dunlop Limited Edition Wimbledon bag from a few years back, and a brand spankin' new Dunlop Revelation 200g in 4 1/2 I found cheap on The Bay.
Man that is sweet
Never liked Dunlop. But those frames look sick.
I love the 200g MW pj...great stuff!
Can anybody add something to my thread below? http://tt.tennis-warehouse.com/showthread.php?t=504779
all input would be appreciated
Damn, love those revelation 200G's. Nice find!
You guys realize this thread has been going strong for NINE YEARS STRIAGHT. Anyways, I have two original Wilson Juice 100 rackets. They have Wilson leather grips on them covered with a Tournagrip. They are strung with Babolat Rpm Blast at 56lbs. I also have a Head liquid metal 8 racket with 20 grams of lead added at 3&9, that is strung with a babolat rpm blast/gamma stinger hybrid at 60lbs. It has the same grip as the two Juices. Then I have a yellow and black 6 racket Wilson bag. And I have an Aluminum Wilson Cobra from the early 80's. That is strung with Babolat Rpm Blast at 40lbs(very small head). And I want to post pics of my gear, can someone tell me how to take it from my gallery and put it in here?
new to the family of the PS90s
WOW. Nice collection, and as Wilson plans to stop the 90 line, that could also be a precious collection some day.:twisted:
I've only played with the K90 as it's often claimed to be the best tour 90. Which one do you like best?
I have yet to find the N90 and the hyper prostaff tour 90.If i do, its a collection worth having.
from my experience, here is my opinion about the 4 90s that i have. i cant put a favorite on one of the rackets, however i do like them all since they have same plowthrough and precision that companies cant replicate.
(All of them are modded to my specs with leadtape and silicone in the handle)
K90: It has a crisp feel to it, but didnt encounter any discomfort what so ever. If your technique is right, this racket can be a deadly weapon with precision.
BLX Six.One Tour: As most people would describe it, its like a prostaff with a dampner. its pretty nice feeling if im not hitting really seriously. sometimes i take it out because i like the cosmetics and wear the oufit that federer had in US open 2011 (imo best outfit)
PS90BLX: Seems this racket retain that soft feel, but added little crispness, but not too much. its like right in the middle between the k90 and the 6.1 tour
PS90 2014: yet to with with it, but its like they stiffen the racket quite a bit
Here's my collection!
Price EXO3 Graphite 100
Slazenger Pro Braided
Wilson ProStaff 6.0 85
Head MP Radical
Prince TT Stealth MP
Bridgestone ILLIA 110 (for my sister!)
Oof...I don't know how to embed pics! Where do you guys do that? xD
What's the swingweight of that cat? (homage to the original post )
New acquisitions. No more racquets for the next five years.
let's look at some racquets other than babolat, head and wilson!
My Federer Collection
^^ Federer never used any descendants of the Pro Staff 6.1 Classic line. Fail.
And beyond the Pro Staff 6.0 85, everything is debatable.
He did use a paint job of all of these which I'm sure is what the poster was implying
Lol hardcore fed fan detected
Although, Wilson's paintjob department took a dump after the Hyper series.
For REALS man
New BLX Pro Staff 95
One strung w/ Wilson Natural Gut 16/Signum Pro Poly Plasma Pure 16L, the other with Tecnifibre NRG2 17
Haven't been "collecting" a long time. A few of them in need of some proper TLC - and I haven't had the time lately.
Most of these I saved from being thrown out or picked up at garage sales for $1-3.
Babolat Pure Control Tours (main stick)
Babolat Pure Drive Teams
Donnay Pro One 97
Prince o3 White
Head Graphene Speed Pro LTD
I must have a thing for blacked out frames Currently looking to re-add a Yonex RQIS 1 Tour and Wilson nblade to the lot~
How is the Pure Control Tour compare to your Speed Pro and Pure Drive ?
Compared to my pure drives, the pure control tour weighs more, has a higher swingweight, is more flexible, and has a denser string pattern. All of this leads to a flatter, heavier ball and I feel much more control (haha) from this frame. It also stands up well against harder hitters, and you are rewarded for taking full confident swings.
Compared to the speed pro, it's very similar, except I find it has a lot more stability and spin potential. It's also a lot more comfortable as it is more flexible and I can definitely feel a "give" when hitting the sweetspot. It's easier to hit deep and through the court with the PCT whereas with the speed pro I often found myself hitting short.
What's the PCT like on the serve?
I find the Speed Pro to be very dead the 1 month I hit with it, and I am curious to try out the PCT for an extended demo test in the future. Thanks for the feedback !!!!!!!!
A dream. Once I really let the racket do more of the work, (vs. with a Pure Drive) I really have felt dialed in hitting all types of serves.
How do I post pictures on here? I have a couple juices as well as a head frame and an old school wilson cobra aluminum.
new batch of pro stocks
^ What pro stocks are the graphenes?
If I may ask, what's the difference between the euro ig speed pro and the regular ig speed pro?
that there was no regular IG Speed Pro. The IG Speed Pro was a Europe only release.
I 've written about this before, but if any of you guys is interested in the european IG speed pro, I am happy to sell it, it's in pristine condition and I am not using it at all.
correct there is no IG speed pro
the ones i have are the pro stock version of the euro IG (softer flex)
no shared holes
you can see in this pic the IG one.. they def. didn't make this frame in a G paintjob, so these are true PJ rackets
