Post Pictures of your Racquets and Tennis Gear

Anyway – content of my today's tennis bag.



Dunlop PT924 – feel-wise the best one for sure, however 231.1, 260.2 and Pro Tour 2.0 are also so good frames. IG Radical Pro and 260.2 I really love for feel, comfort and dense 16x19.
If PT2.0 would be lighter I could easily switch to it. Still think Wilson has the best paint jobs in recent years. Pure, minimal and stylish.

The IG Rad paint job is gone of the goats.

To me this protype paint looks more gorgeous than what is to be the actual paint I saw in leaked catalog. Now I need one! How did it play?
I only used it in a couple ball feed drills and live ball drills on a demo night. pretty crowded so didn't get into a groove. I believe it is 10.6 but it felt like it hit through the ball pretty well. If I were to pick one up...I'll do my usual leather grip and then lead as needed to get weight in the hoop. I did appreciate the 8 mains in the throat.

Haven't seen any leaked pics of the radical. Part of me hopes I don't like the colors...lol

Don't see many Pro Staff 95's - glad to see them! I love hitting them but no power lol.

What kind of weighing do you have on there? Any suggestions? (Feel free to PM as to not litter thread if that's not allowed in this thread...wasn't sure)
Yep pretty rare. Makes finding one even harder haha. Just recently switched to them actually. You’re quite right in saying that it’s lacks power. But I love the control and feel I get from these. Can feel like I can put the ball on a dime. Spin also helps. Power lacks, but you can always add power to a frame.

I’m the pic I’ve added lead form 9 to 3, which according to my calculations has bumped up the static weight to 351g and swingweight to 365. But I’ve noticed I’ve stated lacking some racquet head speed and so am still tinkering. Ive taken some off and now the swingweight is at about 345 and I’ll see how it goes.
Plus it’s one sexy ass frame

Nice collection, about as varied as it can get!
There are a few similarities, tho.
Both the Clash and the NXG's have a graphite handle with no pallet, and they do feel a bit similar because of it.
The Clash and APD actually play similarly(but feel very different). The Clash takes me a few games to get used to the launch angle, tho. APD and NXG are similar.
The AeroStorm isn't hugely different from the Radical except for more spin. I will admit the Radical is also more comfy and solid in use. It's the Wife's stick.
The 97s and AI98 is sort of it's own thing in that batch, tho. The wife occasionally uses them, too, as these and the Radical are close enough for her game.
Oddly, the APD is second place for spin in this group. The NXG's produce more of it when both sticks are strung with TB or HyperG.
Could be because they are lower powered and I can swing out more, or may be the fact they weigh nearly 20 grams strung more than the APD, or maybe due to being 27.25 inches. Shrug.

Niiiice. So no love for the original Pro Staff Classic 95?

PS Classic 95 is a great racquet but I always shifted back to the K88 or PS85 when I had it. Must be something about the swing weight. I've matched the PS97V13 swing weight to the K88 and feels great.

Cool Donnay Heritage. Can you take some detailed photos of that on please?
Yep. From what I can tell, it’s basically a PS 85 with a tighter 16x19 (8 center mains) and a color-shifted paint job. 356g strung / ~10 points head light with overgrip and rubber band dampener. Hits pretty nicely, but I can barely find anything about it online. Still strung with full gut and it has its original leather grip.
