    Good questiion, the Sensor comes with a plug that has a 90 degree angle on the end so it sits rather flush on the bottom. Just to make sure I put on higher rubber feet on the bottom.
    Yeah, it's a great machine, my partner got him a Wilson Bairado(sp) and it had the fancy angle thing, but was nowhere near the smoothness or quickness that the Sensor was.
    Thanks zapvor.

    I like them both, I like the Sensor better :)
    Hardware store, you know they are about 3/8 inch high and have sticky on the side you attach it to. Actually I"m looking at mine right now and it doesn't appear that I have extra feet below, just the ones it came with.

    The problem is finding something sturdy enough to hold the weight, I was lucky I have this old german chest of drawers, that work great cause I can keep all my strings, grips tools in and right next to it, a filing cabinet to hold the cleaning stuff and bigger tools.
    In fact you can probably use 3 filing cabinets and put a 1/2" piece of 2'x 4' plywood or longer if you want a longer table.
    That would work pretty good and then you have all those drawers in the cabinet for strings, reels fit perfect, and tools.

    The blue strings make it look like a heaven and hell racquet.

    These are the current line up. I want to finally make a decision, and stick to one. It will be difficult :([​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    John,

    What are the specs on your capped MG Radical MP?

    Can you give some feedback on how it plays? Also is that one of the original productions or the current models?

    Original production, it's weighted up to 343, I have to string it pretty low 48/47 for me to enjoy it. I actually have the regular grommets on the way, I thought the capped grommets would make it magical...I am not so sure about that now. I haven't really hit with it in awhile, but in comparison to my Tecs, I like the Tecs more (actually, I like every frame in that picture more. Not exactly a glowing review. It has a really tight string pattern, but I can still get a decent amount of spin. The main reason it appeared in that pic, is the Head Finest Calfskin I put on it :) If I recall it's around 5 pts HeadLight (there is blutack in the handle and the leather grip. Since the leather grip, I have not had a chance to hit with it. If I get some court time tomorrow, I will.

    What do you think of the burn? It looks a little like a Graphene Radical.

    really like it just hit with it first time for about an hour. way faster racket than the 97S. Really liked the spin potential, and felt like had better/deeper groundies. Didn't play enough at the net to comment but it is a beast on the serve

    a bit more muted than the old school feel of the PS97S, but will post a full review after a full set/match and some more time on court.

    That O3 White LS 100 is crying inside, it deserves a Prince calfskin leather grip :) Nice frames/pics!

    Lol yes I know .. I have put a babolat woofer grip, just to help with my TE, not sure if it's going to be effective ..

    My favourite is the Juice 100s, it's an absolute monster !!!!!

    I had one, and sold it on the bay, it was a fun frame to hit around with! It has ridiculous amounts of power and spin, and I had a blast hitting with it. The O3 White LS 100 is a frame that I loved (I have a sweet one that I customized....and quite a few backups and the original) I hope your TE heals quickly and you can get back out on the court. If you string the O3 White 54 and under it is a really comfortable frame. Adding some blutack in the handle also made it come alive for me (mine was almost even balanced and I like them more headlight) I don't know what strings you are using, but a really arm friendly string setup for me was this:
    [​IMG]
    The strings moved around, but it had the spin of a poly and felt like natural gut. Might be worth checking out if you want to spoil your arm and treat it like royalty :)

    You are right, the amount of power and spin juice generated is ridiculous.

    But to be honest, its given my game a whole new dimension. My serves speed is gone miles up, back hand returns, double hand back hand but definitely needs some work on volleys.

    At the moment I have strung it at 55 with cyclone tour and its playing beautifully ..

    But juice is strung with wilson revolve and its crushing my opponents. They don't know what's hitting them lol

    Did you put lead tape on your LS 100 ?

    Looks like an AeroStorm

    For clarification, I know this is the French Open Pure Aero paintjob. Just stating that it looks like the only AeroStorm PJ to me.

    Pretty sure this is a Pure Aero. Hoop edges are sharp.

    No visible Cortex and Pure Aero on the Babolat packaging, looks like an upcoming special edition?! The pics seem to be old though...

    To me, its paint job looks more like PDFO 2013.

    It's Pure Aero.

    See my thread and my signature...

    But essentially it's 5g of lead at 12 (visible in pic) and 5g of blue tack in the buttcap/handle.

    What Kimguroo said.
    I was just looking through all the Craiglist ads from all over the country for a stringer and I was lucky to find him selling all his Sensors, I bought two, sold 1.
