My Wilson pro staff 6.0 85 PJ!!!
Well done sir. That racquet IS America!
Head margin is +/- 7g, therefore, this is within the margin (two corners)...
Also, different strings weigh different....
I abandoned my Yonex loyalty and just added two new Pure Storm Tour GTs. RDS 002 Tours are still my main stick though.
^ Oh yeah!!!! the RDS002Tours.... Great..Great sticks.
Don't blame you for abandoning Yonex with the PST's. Far beyond any other company, I believe Yonex has done the most to alienate their base.
You can't find equivelant (spec-wise) Yonex frames, today, that were in production 5 short years ago.
It's like every 2years Yonex says.. 'alright guys, we're making some good frames.. let's change everything'.
You must work for Head ... now I am sure.
10 grams difference ... and you say it's ok ... it's the strings ... maybe photoshopped ... ok ok
And one more time you gone be right ... take the bike!
thanks man! good variety
Dr is actually in the right here. Different strings weight different amounts, and Head does state +/- 7 grams. If they were both unstrung without overgrips, and they were out of the 7 grams, I would see a problem, but alas they are not. :razz:
I am not sure why you got so excited about this, and what you tried to say, however, I just stated the obvious -- Some rackets operate on +/-7g and some on +/-10 g margin. Some (Yonex) do not.
Strings -- that was a stupid comment from you, I am sure you realized that, especially when the string weight differences can be 5g from poly to gut...
And no, I do not work in the racket/tennis industry, however, in this case, a 6-year-old could come up with the same conclusion...
I am glad that you can do such fancy comments about your point of view.
It reveals that you're not only a clever brain but also someone that can read out all the inlines, and allways be accurate.
Have you ever tryied to be a minister or president of your country?
I am sure that with your nice comments all your cleverness you can get there!
Again, you're right! Congrats.
My Prince Graphite 93's and new Rebel 95's

Gotta love Prince racquets.
I started a thread about the 93's. Let me know what you think of them, obviously good things i'm sure, you have four of them
Lmao... This is great!
a few of my dunlop maxply mcenroe's.
dropped off the others today for re-stringing.
how do you hit with those? i got one and the thing is brutal. you must be old school
they are obviously not the most forgiving racquets as you know, but i have always preferred the stiffness of them.
i demo racquets from time to time, but i have yet to find something for me to switch to.
i agree. they dont seem like they hit like any other racket, and i have demoed a bunch
My 98 Yonex EZone Xi and BLX 100 six.one
good stuff! thats a big jump from one to the other
My BLX Blade 98 and Pure Storm Tour.
The Yonex is so much sexier, in my opinion!
Old 95's or new ones? and how did they play?
I play with the kblade tours.
ur bored aren't you?
Short answer: yes. Short story: graduated college. Got a job. Moved to a city where I didn't know anyone. ^^^^this happened haha. But I'm selling everything besides the kblades now.
funny, i have that same rug
I like this picture! My wife looked over as I was viewing it and rolled her eyes and said, "You and that tennis site...". That made me laugh. Also, I see you have a Stieg Larsson book in the corner, those books are awesome!
Are the prestiges mp's? I'd be interested.
This is what I have left, been selling em off little by little.
Kramers and Maxplys look very sweet.
The JK Autograph is actually a midsize. It is the last wood frame that Wilson made. Somewhat collectible. Would love to see pics of your stuff, are they in here somewhere?
Ooh! A Donnay Flex-pro.
Haven't seen one of those in a while.
Curious, what model is the yellow Tour 10 Volkl with the black bridge?
That's the volkl tour 10 midplus generation 2
congrats man! i think it was nicely done. too many people on here dont take enough care of their babies. good to see someone putting effort into displaying them
i dont remember anything about the LM fire....weird
agreed. i just saw one in person and the paintjob is superb
Yeah, I know... it's the frame nobody remembers. The most overlooked frame of the whole LM line, I think because because the low (10.5 oz stock) weight puts it into the tweener bucket. I took a demo just on a whim and found it amazingly stable with out any lead at all, then a light bulb turned on in my head... it just needs a whole lot more weight in the handle, and a few strips at 3:00 & 9:00. With the mods I've made they are really special. There is a very early Ti Fire Pro Edition, that was 98 in, and 12oz. I think they should have kept going in that direction.
I have a LM Fire! One of my first rackets ever. It is a pretty solid racket, even though it's a bit light in stock form. Played great with it when I was 13-14, but haven't picked it up in a long while. Maybe I'll try your mod. And man, it's a good looking paint job. You've inspired me to go dig it up and give it a hit again.
what did u string the ps 6.1 Classsic? what string and tension pls
you know what-i do remember the TI Fire. it was like grey bluish. interesting! i missed the LM! maybe i will pick one up...
I played with the Ti. Heat, it was the first "performance" racquet ever for me.
Eventually I moved onto the Mid racquets and the rest is history.
I will say this, somewhere along my timeline from the Ti. Heat to the BLX90 that I'm rocking now. I stumbled across a wonderful creation called the "Ti. Fire PRO Edition", really really REALLY special frame.
Cool cool, yeah the paint job is amazing on the LM fire. The black is super deep and super glossy. Kind of like a Lexus looks the first year. In stock form its even balanced, 10.5 oz, and 27.3 inches long. So there is plenty of room to add a whole gob (technical term) of lead to the handle to get the HL that you want and still keep it under 12 oz or so. I went all the way to 13.3 oz because I added another .7 inches to the length as well, ( a 1/4" at a time over the course of a few years) which requires a bit more weight in the handle to keep me in the golden zone balance wise. At 28" it is a real service weapon for me. The published head size at 102 is actually more like a 99, Head measures their specs from the outside of the frame.
Hi Say Chi Sin Lo,
Yes! that was the version that was 98 and 12.oz. I seem to recall breakpoint said he played with that one for a long time too. They should have spun off their versions from that design. Instead, they split off the heavy & stiff sticks into the extreme series, and the light & stiff frames into the LM Fire- > Heat-> Mojo. The bare bones on the Fire is really good. Its just balanced wrong in stock form.
Thats a truly cool presentation of Your stuff !!!!!
Head really needs to stop advertising their midpluses as "98" when they're really 95, and their mids as "93" when they're really ~89.
The Ti. Fire Pro was no different, it played more like a 95 instead of the advertised 98.
good info. by the way where did breakpoint go
^^^^ I don't know, it's curious to me as well. I took a break from the board for a 3-4 years, came back last summer and he's noticeably absent.
What I like most about this picture is that there isn't a single Babolat in there. You, Sir, have good taste.
