My most used string setup is Luxilon Big Banger Original 1.30mm, 56/54 lbs, but now I'm trying the Alu Power Ice Blue 1.25mm and I think I'll switch...took off the replacement grip, I'm using 2 Wilson overgrips on a bare handle. 12g of silicone in the handle to compensate, 4g of lead at 3, 9 and 12 o'clock...bumped the swingweight to 360 with a static weight of 342g (strung). Balance is 33cm strung.
I’ve never really liked any plus length racquets before, but if I had an exception; it would be this one. The Cortex APD is a underrated frame imo. It’s also one of my all time favorite Babolat APD/PA PJ next to the OG and ‘15 RG APD.
Agree, it's a beast. Out of all the pj's of the aero's, the cortex is my favorite.I’ve never really liked any plus length racquets before, but this if I had an exception; it would be this one.

Hey! Nobody's noticed in any of my matches.
Still too early to tell and I need to add some lead to that stick, wanted to hit it stock to see how I would like it since it’s been a while-nope. Needs lead for sure. I’ll update when I get more time with the Jet. Initial impressions are good though!@JOSHL
what did you think of the gamma jet??
i tried to get a review of the string going a few months back, nothing came of it
here is the link if interested:
Those were awesome racquetsThought that I might bring my little contribution to this nice thread.
Here's my latest acquisition thanks to Langdon0555 : three fabulous Fischer Pro Classic 98 from the mid-nineties. All perfectly matched, thank you Fischer.
And guess what : I find them so beautiful that I don't dare playing with !
It reaches all the way to the ground... impressive.
All jokes aside, I love the look of those racquets... just not sure where they would sit when compared to my 95D, Ezone DR98, and RDiS 100 MP.
