    I am sure there are other competing photo sharing sites that will gladly allow me to post my pics!!! I can't stand the nonstop spamming of photobucket anymore (try to upload a pic, they kill you with pop up ads) so I agree with you. There is always someone else out there competing to get their product noticed (the beauty of capitalism!!)

    They were definitely making money off their sponsors...but that wasn't good enough for them...greed kills most companies unfortunately :(

    We all have to stick together as consumers and just boycott Photobucket. Their spamming was out of control.

    I've used pbaseDAWTcom for a very long time. No nonsense, cheap, no spam, and uncomplicated.

    Finally got around to "figuring out" how pics work on here... These are some of mine - I guess the ones I think are most interesting that I have here in Germany. Unfortunately my Bumblebee and at least 2 zebras and another candycane all currently reside in the states...

    Can you compare the blue one(AI 98?) and the Vcore 310?

    My kids are beaming with joy with these beauties!!!! Best Raquet cosmetics ever! Would have never imagined Wilson having the best looking raquets of all time. They look even more impressive in person. Congrats Wilson!!!

    I love these! Wow. Too bad I don't like the way they play or I'd have them as well.

    My new baby. Found it in totally mint condition, original overgrip, no paint chips, not even a scuff on the bumper guard. Can't wait to restring it and give it a go.

    I have a probably stupid question... Did I mess up the pic posting? Why is mine just a link instead of an actual picture like everybody else?

    First name starts with 'M' so I'm branding it as my own. And yes, I win my racquet spins 100% of the time now.

    The Tour 10 GII is my most favorite racquet, just love it. Have you gotten to hit with it yet? If so, how'd you like it?

    I wonder if there's any chance of me getting someone to send it to me? I am a sucker for the Graphite series! Currently rocking the Graphite 2 Midpluses as my main sticks.

    If you contact me, three weeks ago, he could bring extra one.
    Still I can get it for you but shipping fee will be around $30-40 since express mail will be used. Send me a message, if you are interested in.

    Great color
    Great colors and would have gotten the bag but the material used these days on tennis bags is worse than previous bags.

    Question: Does the LS have Federer's face on it? Was thinking about demoing it, but if his face is on it, I'm not getting it.

    I like it, its got plenty of power and I generate alot of my own power still. My strokes can be whippy at times and I don't have any problem with the weight. As it sits it's probably closer to 11.2 oz(TW says 10.8 oz strung) with a hybrid of 16g ALU power/Wilson NXT and an overgrip and a smidge of lead tape under the handle Feels great on my OHBH side, not too head heavy but still able to plow through the ball and generate plenty of topspin and pace

    This is after coming from a 2015 Blade 98 16x19 and 2017 Pro Staff 97S the last few years

    Awesome. I noticed you said you hit with the ProStaff 97s, which is also on my demo list.

    Could you compare the two. The 97s and 97 ls? I've hit with the regular 97 and liked it very much.

    I'm probably on the opposite side of the fence here but I tried the 97/97S(2017 red/black) and I found that I played better with the 97S. I'm not sure if wilsons QC had anything to do with it, but I used the same hybrid setup in both(ALU power mains/NXT crosses) and the 97 I just couldnt connect with and dial in. My forehands were all over the place and the launch angle was too. I couldnt hit a consistent FH and I had to keep adjusting my swing. the racquet felt alot more head heavy and to counter I put some lead tape under the handle to try and even the balance. My OHBH was decent at most and my volleys were mediocre. Overall I didnt have a good experience with the 97.

    The 97S with the same setup and lead tape in the same spot felt alot better. The racquet felt more stable and balanced, my forehands felt more dialed in and connected, launch angle was mostly consistent and I didnt have to do too much adjusting. OHBH felt great and had plenty of plow through and stabillity. Volleys and serves felt great and controlled, aside from my kick second serve.

    Overall I thought the 97S felt better all around than the 97, of course its subject to each individual
