Discussion in 'Pros' Racquets and Gear' started by aceroberts13, Apr 9, 2012.
Anyone know of any pros playing with this frame?
Really? No one knows? I thought I'd get some Murray love in here at least.
Murray doesn't use XL to my knowledge though...
The pros that do use the PT57A are a dime a dozen though.
^^^ i thought many pros used the pt57e frame
Really? Just from what I've read I thought the PT57E was much less used then the A. I could very well be mistaken though.
That's kind of what I thought as well, which is why I thought there would be some big lists in here. Oh well. I was just trying to get some discussion going. No biggie.
1) Murray is using a standard length PT57A with the 16x19 pattern.
2) There are plenty of Head sponsored (low ranked) players that actually use the PT57A that we do not know about. A friend of mine (used to be as high as 76) is currently in the 400's and gets free PT57A's
3) Similarly, but less common, with the PT57E
I want more PT57A XL......hahaha for me they are great!!!!
Dan if you ever get them let me know
5 not enough?
I usually only look for the standard length...
Hell I'd be happy with 2..lol. XL PT57As?
What a fantasy stick that probably is.
You know something dan, i´m a compulsive buyer, I´m a victim of marketing..hahaha....
I would love to have some PT57A XL in the new pj, but like you have told me, they would be IMPOSSIBLE to get, because this days, there is almost none pro that uses a PT57A XL, and if there is any, they hardly would sell it
So I´m keeping my 5 rackets...
Talk to you later Doc!
Haha I wish I could get some hairpins for the 260.2's XL. They come in at 27.75 inches and you can weigh them up to be a beast of a racket.
No. You should totally sell all of them to me.
Just for kicks.... and somewhat related.
There is an interesting auction up on the 'bay. David Wheaton's PC600's are up for sale, green CAPless, black/silver pj. Brand new.
They're listed as PC600's, yet the headsize is 95. The grip size is 4-3/4's. They're all spec'd out same and the seller even states that the lead tape can be removed.
Maybe these are hairpins modded up or just really good QC topped off with some lead tape. I've sent the seller some questions trying to find out more info and currently watching the items.
A little off topic but... Are the old head pro tour 630's the same as the PT57a? i've been looking around in numerous threads but can't find a direct answer
^ For fear of being reprimanded.... I dare not answer. But I will anyway.
I've read a lot on the subject after many failed attempts at purchasing some of these. I think I have it right. Maybe.
BUT, I believe yes. pt57a stands for ProTour and the flex 57 (dr325i, vsbabolat, others... am i correct?) The 'a' or 'e' sometimes differentiate between stiffnesses... 'e' being the stiffer PT630 se1 version... (again,dr325i, vsbabolat, others... is this right?)
BTW, if one types former touring pro 'David Wheaton' on the 'bay.... there is a ton of pc600's, pt630's, radicalTour 260's and 690's, amongst other frames, up for auction.
Just nice to look at.
The PT57A = same mold at the PT630, flexy, soft, however, lighter than the old retail stick.
The PT57E is the iPrestige Pro Stock version
Therefore, they are totally different molds and sticks.
The SE1 is just a different layup of the PT630 (stiffer)
Would you mind e-mailing me? I have a couple of questions.
Do you think that Wheaton's Pro Tours will be Pro Stock frames ie. lighter than retail ones? Also, am I right in thinking that this is a PT57a?
I assume this is the case but this was a while ago now.
