**** 4 3/8 out of stock now as well... Gives time for my paypal funds to clear though.

So... do sizes run normal on these frames? I am using 4 3/8 (B) on my Angells and its going well.
Yep pretty standard. The Prince is more square in general.

Because of the squarish grip, I find the 4 3/8 Prince felt slightly larger than the same size Head, Babolat, Angell. I actually like the more square grip.

Weird that you find it larger than babolat :O Given that my hand is not necessarily that big I may stick to the 4 1/4! Inbetween 4 1/4 and 3/8 on angell. Thank you for your help :)

Have you tried using a black sharpie? It worked really well for me on all the paint chipped marks.
When I’ve done that in the past, it’s produced a glare sometimes when spinning the racquet in my hand before points. Not a huge deal, but more distracting than the paint scrapes. Goodness knows there are enough scuffs to try Sharpie-ing part of the racquet and see how it goes without committing to the whole thing though.

I got my first paint chip on mine. I need to make the trip to CVS to find a good nail polish.
Hehe... :sneaky:
I learned to live with the slice side totally damaged and the other side perfectly clean...
The only problem is that it's really difficult to find grommets/bumpers for Prince racquets!!!

Good Point. It's hard to foresee any of the manufacturers releasing a new mid-size player's racquet. Maybe now is the best time to stock up. One of the reasons I moved from the PS90 was the lack of replacement grommets. It's now almost cheaper for me to buy a used Pro Staff 7.5 on e-bay than to buy the grommets.

Can anyone comment on the launch angle of the 14x18 vs the 18x20? And how that compares to a Wilson Pro Staff RF97? Thanks in advance
 
It felt quite a bit higher to me in the 14x18 vs 18x20. I sold my 14x18s mostly for this reason since the adjustment was just too big.
I have no experience w the RF97.

I’d say it equals up to about 2 ft higher over the net with semi tight strings - 53-55lbs. 48-53 is anywhere between 3-4 ft. Rough estimates

Made a vid of first impression with 93p if interested , was enough of a good demo for immediate buy
Good hitting... I have the first version of the 93P and I added a small amount of weight at 3 & 9 and the same amount at 7" above butt cap (together with an overgrip and a rubber band as dampener). The racquet plays great, is extremely precise, and has a good amount of power (as long as full strokes are maintained). What I find great about the racquet is that the precision is so good that points can be won through placement and a fair amount of power, rather than a reliance on blasting the opponent off the court. With the 93P it is a victory achieved through precise but deadly cuts (ninja style) that the opponent only notices when it's too late. It allows for a greater expression of a person's skill and artistry, and therefore once mastered, brings greater satisfaction.

Agreed, because i take a large cut but it doesnt over do it, it allows for a ton of precision, i thought this would be out of my spec range but was pleasantly surprised, amazing first go around
