those extremes will do some damage.
I've used one so far and it feels pretty good. I'm replacing the babolat aeropro drive 2013 models and they feel a little different. I feel as if I get more control with these even at much lower tensions. This is with the lead at the 12. I'll see how it plays tomorrow with lead at the 3 and 9. This should give me more control. Can't complain, $139 each new.

Trying to pick a winner from this bunch...O3 Whites and a Prince Textreme Tour 100P are in bags (I figured they would be safer there until I have to string them up :)
Just capped the Microgel Radical, have to string it up (and added weight to the handle. The premier 105/prestige S/Vantage 95/Extreme/ and kblades aren't in my regular rotation right now.

They are brand new, unstrung, but they came with a set of Prince Premier Control. Unfortunately Prince has decided to kill the O3 White, there were 7 left in Prince's warehouse, I got 4 of them. They were my first main frame, and I still enjoy them. Plus I got a good deal, they actually put all 7 on hold for me, but I thought that was overkill. :)

I leave the racquet sales to TW!! I just get tons of stuff for me :) They probably think I am crazy, especially since I have sent them numerous emails demanding specs for the new Textreme Warrior 100!! Just so I can satisfy the other Textreme addicts on the board with new information ;)

Wow, that looks amazing. A monster to swing though?
Haha, yes it is :) 347 g static weight with overgrip, a point or two HL.
Thinner poly strings help to push it through the air, and I don't think it swings heavier than stock Pro Tour 280 anyway

Very cool. Please explain the color choices. The paint(?) at 3 & 9 match what looks like a pallet.
Since these are older racquets and not many left so I cycle my racquets in hopes of preserving them a little longer. When the strings die/break, I'll que them in the back, but I started getting confused which racquet was which, so I tagged them with a name, but that took to long to see, so I decided to color code it. Since these were older racquets and the 3 and 9 pts were just white, I figured I could just paint that little strip with some color to better and easily be identifiable, plus it allowed me to know which racquet I was using since each racquet has their own particular nuance. I also like leather grips, but a full leather grip weighed to much so I shorten them, but it just made for a ugly eye sore above the cutoff leather grip. I first tried to wrap the over grip above the grip, but it still looked ugly, so I thought about it and decided that by painting the upper portion of the pallet, it would match the paint at the 3 and 9 pts. It turned out better than I thought as now it looked like a finished product, both complimenting each other.



What the original looked like..
...and the customized version looks like, it makes for a very unique and original racquet on the court.

Also, what racquets are these? Very round heads. NCode?
These are very old Wilson Ncode 98 Pro. The pic maybe misleading, Head is not that round


I liked them because the weight allowed for easy weight customization and they held extra weight very well, plus I really love the 18x18 string pattern which gives you great control as well as power and since, the pattern is not that closed it allows for "spin potential" .

The nCodes were a great generation any way you slice it. I used the nCode 6.1 95 18x20 for a few years. I never tried the nPro, but I did try the nPro Surge and nPro Surge X (I believe the Bryan Bros used this PJ). Great sticks. 18x18 is interesting.
