Are you able to play again, how are you doing?
Yup. Playing two times a week. I could play three but finding people that are safe to play with is a bit challenging in a pandemic.

I'm in remission and working on fitness but the permanent side-effects from treatment make life challenging. Removing organs from your body make some things hard.

I'm still casually shopping for a PT57A XL but I don't see very many on String Forums these days. Probably the pandemic.

During the early parts of the pandemic I remember seeing Ultra Tour 97's on sale for $90 new...now only sold via Wilson for MSRP as the Ultra Pro (non pro labs)...should have jumped on the deals for the UT 2.0!
I could be wrong but the UT 2.0 is now the UP 18. It is now a Pro Labs frame. I picked up a few at the $99 price since it is an amazing frame.

How does it hit?
I customized both to my spec, they hit super nice. Firmer in the handle than the standard (Popryn) PT57A2. Murray has a metal rod in the handle that stiffens the handle feel + molded handle vs pallets

I added a few points above.
Yes, PT57A 16x19, I have a few of Popryn’s and these two Murray’s customized to my spec.
Very nice. I didn't know the part about the metal rod though - I've never heard of someone doing that before besides me. Though I'd guess that his are larger and hollow. I have 4 or 4 1/2 inch nails running through the silicone in my YT Prestige MPs. I just put them in there to get some easy tail weight. No clue if they increase rigidity of the handle.

PT57As have been pretty hard to find the past couple of months - maybe due to the reduced number of tournaments due to the pandemic. What I'd love to get is a matched set of 27.75 inch PT57As, and then customize them.

First time using CTR. Thanks guys.

Please forgive the intrusive question, but what does something like that cost? I was checking out their website and I'm thinking about doing it, (saw some amazing Wooden imitation paintjobs), but don't want to email them and find out it's way out of my budget range.

Disregard! I found their pricing information.

They do a very good custom PJ, but would not use them again for the "refresh" actual PJ...

Havent played with it yet...will be hitting with it tonight
Got the 98 as well for a little bit. It was the all white with no branding on it except on the grommet/head guard. It was missing the silver cap on the trap door. I heard that there is an option to have 2 different weights on it. Will try it tonight with shaped poly/synthetic hybrid. Specs are 302g 274 sw 311mm

Yeah the one early run without the branding had a lower SW. It was anemic stock but took weight well. The newer run with Solinco in the top of the hoop has an increased SW (still 320s strung I think). 2 different weights of trap door and there’s foam fill in the handle. Solinco generally leaves room in their specs for them to be good platform frames.

This one did not have foam in the handle. I wonder which version of the prototype it was. Might work well with silicone.

First post! I figured what better way to introduce myself than show off my racquet collection 8-B



Hope to see you guys around!
Nice one! Can I ask the 2nd PA from the right, is that the RG Lite version? If so, have you modded it to the standard PA spec? Thanks
