Higher RA on the 2019 model and the addition of Twaron.

RA went from 62 to 65, right? Is that even discernible? Hey TW people who moderate these threads - what’s the upside on the 2019 tt100p from the 2015 model? Also, will the 2015 model parts (bumper/grommets) fit the new 2019 model?

I think it's fair to say most of the posts indicated disappointment seeing RA 65 vs 62 (including myself). I'd be curious to hear TW people take on this as well.

Didn't realized they came out with a new 100P as well. What's the difference between the 100 and the 100P?

1) string pattern: 16x18 in 100 and 18x20 in 100P
2) RA (very close): 65 in 100 and 66 in 100P
Well, I ordered the 100 based upon the good playtest report. Liked the old Tour 95 but lacked plow. Didn't like the old 100P so much. Hopefully, I don't hate the Tour 100.

I'd be very curious to hear your thoughts once you get your racquet. Let us know! I am contemplating buying one as well.. i'll probably demo first.

In the past I weighted up a TT100T to as close to 100P specs as I could get it. Definitely liked the 16x18 pattern a little better, but I could never get the balance to feel right so I gave up on it. This new 100 may fit the bill perfectly!!

I demoed all 3 princes. Hit about 200 balls each off a ball machine. I keep saying this but the 2019 TT is awesome, it’s a lot like the 2015 blade. Nothing will be a blade but this comes close. It was putting the ball where I aimed it every time. I knew where the ball was going as it left the racquet. I tend to get some arm pain with poly, it’s not tennis elbow. It’s more of the triceps connection area of my elbow, I get the same pain when I play hockey. Anyways fun, poly bed on the TT and it was great. The sound is not so much. I like the pop sound on my ‘14 PS with a gut hybrid but my main stick is the TT now.

The 2019s do not feel stiffer, but if you have old joints please beware. The numbers do not lie. My 4.0 friend in his 60s developed GE after a couple of months with his TT100P(2019) and I did as well (59 and 4.5). It can creep up on you. My friend is not ditching his 2019, but I am back with the 2015 - better stock up since they will soon be gone. Younger players will be most likely be fine health-wise and will prefer the new models. The main difference between the TT310 and TT100P is launch angle - lower with the 18x20 of course.

hmmmm. I would be coming from the tour 100 ports. I played the tt100p for a while and liked it. I ended up se snlling them and going with my tours all the way ag ain. I do have a sensitive elbow so I think you just answered my question. I am demoing the 310 and yonex vcore 310 for kicks. If nothng blows me away I wlll probably remain wth the tours or even go back to the tt1009P 2015 in 1/2 grip. No more 3/8 for me. I have sleeves on my tours and will not go back. Thanks for the help.

Absolutely not. If anything it would be better. My elbow is not suffering, I just don’t want 3/8 grip anymore. I always add a half sleeve or use shockshield grips which are thick. I used to use 1/2 and I would rather have the 1/2, use my fav thin overgrip and feel bevels more.

Could you tell a big difference in how the 2015 and 2019 100p played? I’m between weak 4.0 and strong 3.5 (moved up and down depending on season and fitness). I have a 2015 and they are NLA in my grip and wondered if I could get a 2019 and they would play the same

I'll be able in a week or so to tell you the difference between the Prince Textreme Tour 100P v.2015 and the Prince Textreme Tour 310.

I just ordered the 310 and have the 2015 Tour.

I ordered the 310 because I wanted a larger grip size and wanted to explore a more open pattern. All I can say about the 100P.2015 is that it's got enormous backhand slice; a new and useful tool for me. Good at serves, and feels great. I'm used to a 16 x 19 pattern, so I'd like more spin with the serve and a higher launch angle and hope the 310 has some answers here.

310 will have answers for you...

Not the same but pretty darn close. Except for me, all the 2015 users at my club have switched to the 2019 version and they are loving the crisper feel with a slight power boost.

I'm still waiting for the 310.

Yeah, here, not so much into "crispy." The word reminds me too much of the Wilson Pro Staff 6.1 and its crispy-loving fans. It's another word for "stiff."

Me. . . buttery. Love buttery frames. And frames that bend a bit in the tip. . . I like this because it gives me control since that's what I'm used to.

'...all the 2015 users'; I'm now imagining your club is like some sort of tennis equivalent of the Galapagos Islands, one of the few remaining places in the world outside of Japan where Prince users not just subsist, but flourish in significant numbers - I must make a pilgrimage; it will be like the Cash/Rafter days all over again...:love:

:-DIt is a strange Prince oasis here because I value the arm health of my juniors and adults. I would have probably made more $ in the shop if I sold Babolat, but an injured player can't take lessons!

I just found a deal on a 2019 TT100P to go with my TT100P limited. Hopefully they’ll play close enough to the same. I think for the price I’m in them for, it’s worth it.

We all know specs can be off for weight, balance, etc. how accurate are flex ratings? Is there a variance with same models?
