Prince Phantom Pro and Phantom Pro100P

Which Phantom Pro does everyone prefer for 2HBHs? The PP100, PP100P or PP100P (18x20)? I'm switching away from the 93P (18x20) because I'm going to transition to a 2HBH to save my arm. Hitting a one hander is fun with the 93P, but it's a lot of wear and tear on one arm when I could reduce the wear if I switched to a two hander. The 93P doesn't feel right to me when swung with two hands, it feels like a wiffle ball bat.
Phantom Pro 100 18x20.

Have any PP100P players been using the newer Textreme Tour 310? I'm really enjoying it. More pop on serves and easier to hit defensive shots. There's still a nice amount of flex, although not as much as the PP100P.

I really like both racquets.

Used both and preferred the 310 by a mile.

I added 3 grams at 3, 9 and 12 in the price 93p 18x20 and added an over grip and it hits a very mean double hander for me now. With lots of power and directional control.

Have you tried adding weight to the 93p

I was thinking to replace Phantom 100P Pro with Phantom Pro 100. 100P Pro is hurting my shoulder. What can I expect if I change to Pro 100? Maybe some other racquet? Plesase don't hesitate to recommend something :)

Been hitting with Phantom Pro and still struggling to gel with the feel on groundstrokes. Really have lost a lot of power on serve too. Added 2, 2” strips of tape at 10 and same at 2 to bring SW near 330 but still struggling to gel with this.

Are you using full poly... If so what tension are you playing at. For me it plays best at low tension.. Between the 37-42 mark. Any higher and it feels boardy.

Volkl cyclone at 50lbs. With a multi does it lose its control and have too much power?

I dont think you will lose too much control. It really depends on what you are after. playing with multi would always mean more power and relatively less spin so it will depend on your style of play. I personally think volkyl cyclone at 50 is too high for this racket. A while back I tried volkyl cyclone tour in mains and volkyl cyclone in crosses at 45 and it played really well.

I haven't played with a multi in this racket though. I currently have Babolat synthetic gut which is a soft syn gut in the mains at 50 and poly in crosses at 46 and it plays very well but I have also added weight to the racket. In stock form I would have probably gone 47/43 or 45/45

My arm and shoulder started to hurt using the 100P only because I had to swing out to get any pace on the ball. Plus my slice serve was suffering from lack of pace as well. I picked up a couple of Tour 310's when they were on sale this summer and have not looked back!

I had my first hit with the Phantom Pro 100 last night. I just couldn't gel with it. First, the whole frame vibrated, even with a dampener. Second, the feel was too muted. I may be biased because I'm so used to the feel of the PP100P.

In contrast, I was hitting great with the Head Gravity MP (although it needs some lead).

I found PPC to work well in the PP100P. I know that wasn't a string you asked about, but maybe you can use it as a comparison.
@DanS I play with PP100P. I have 3 of them. One of them I have PPA 17 (black) strung really like it.. I have PPA 16 (natural) in another one. I feel the 17G Black plays better for me than the 16G Natural? What gauge and color do you with your rackets?
