Any specific reason you go with all yellow overgrips?
No particular reason. Don't like black and white gets dirty too quickly. Yellow comes in 30 packs and the've grown to be my signature thing, I suppose.
...And Black/red racquets?
I've never noticed that. It's just that the Prestige Pros and red/black and the Yonex VCore line has been predominantly red/black so it's coincidence. On the other side, there's plenty of color variety!
Old Pure Strikes, Pro Staffs + modern vcores and beasts are a thing of beauty though, so who can we blame.
Yas! I've got a decent Donnay collection which I'm proud of. Dunlop AeroGel 4D 200 hidden in there as well as a pair of older Yonex RDX 500s, Gamma Bubba RZR, Yonex Regna,

Pulled these two old timers from under the stairs. IG Speed 300’s. Stuck 6g of lead at 3 and 9 and tail weighted with tac to 340. Pacific overgrip and vibra dampeners. Flex in the high 50’s. Looking forward to taking them out on the clay tomorrow.

Nice IG's, I like that paint job.

Much prefer the glossy paint on these compared to the matte finish.

Why HEAD has matte finish for retail and then glossy for Pro racquets is insane. Notice how the silver and the red parts really pop!? Have you noticed that dark color around throat is really metallic blue and nit black. I couldn’t tell that on the retail racquets

These were really good racquets, and a great thing about them was that they were available with CAP grommets.
What would it take for Head to make CAP grommets available for the current Speed MPs, which are awesome?

how do they play with the leather?
what is your specs coming to?
Sold them a while ago but from what I can remember the leather added 8g and made them more headlight. Nice frames but a little thick for my tastes...

Wilson just needs to bring the Six.One back
are those HPS 6.1 and N6.1s 16x18 or 18x20? i've only ever used the 16x18s but pulled the trigger on the 2017 18x20 frames for giggles. problem is...i never liked 18x20 patterns but the 16x18 was just a bit erratic at times.

Yes 2 Hyper Pro Staff 6.1, and 5 Ncodes (my favorite) and all 18x20. I had one 16x18 but prefer the 18x20.

I've just bought 2 of the 2017 18x20 models. Unbelievable frames. What have you got yours strung with?

That's good news. I used to have the 2014 models in 16x18 as well and they were solid. I havent received my rackets yet. i'm planning on volkl cyclone 1.20mm strung somewhere between 40-45lbs

I currently have Prince Synthetic Gut 16 Mains and Solinco Tour Bite Diamond Rough 17 crosses strung at 46. It seems to be a really nice tension. I may even attempt to go lower/higher next time.

strung one up last night with cyclone 1.20mm at 42#. i have a strong feeling these might pull me away from my current rackets, but we'll see!
