4-6 hours. Its a rather open pattern.How much life are you guys getting out of your polys with the racquet? After about 4 hours I'm constantly straightening strings and the crosses have sawn most of the way through the mains. I've come from tighter patterns/non o port so not familiar with this rate of wear
How do the power levels compare between the two?Yes, I added that much weight and total is around that, just weighted it again the scale shows 318g. As mentioned above, it is now about ... 60/40 balance (a bit more weight around the head).
It plays very well and stable. My friend who is a flat hitter using a lead-up (static weight 340g) Head 360+ Speed Pro strung with x-one biphase, commented that my Ripstick is as stable and solid and comfortable as his Speed Pro. We switched rackets for a couple games and I agree with what he said.
I don't have any machine to measure. Swing weight feels a bit higher than the stock 2021 VCore100 that I also own.
The Ripstick is strung with Volkl V-Square 17G @ 50lb
I have hit with both, they are not my type of racket. But both got good reviews so I wanted to try them. I find the beast to be more raw, more feedback and shock. I think the ripstick is basically better in every category. More spin, power, depth, and more arm friendly but not mushy at all.Anyone able to compare the Ripstick 300 feel to that of The beast 300 O3? I've read so many muted feel comments that I have got a friends Beast O3 to see the feel and just want to check if the feel is the same.
ah, then I felt the 360+ Speed Pro has more power, a slow swing able to hit the ball deep, have to say maybe the biphase multi string contribute a bit.Between the 360+ speed Pro weighted up and the ripstick. i have played with a weighted up 360+ Speed pro (18 grams added in total). Very solid feel, so just wanted an idea...
