    People in the USA interested in the new BXT X Fasts can probably expect launch sometime around the US Open.

    I personally use the BX2 X Fast Pro leaded up. Lots of my students use the Raptor and X Fast LT and Pro.

    And also the x tour pro 97 is now called x tour pro 98. Seems heavier too.

    Next question about fischers. Recently acquired a massive pile of new old stock fischers. Are there any frames anyone would prefer than any current iteration of Pacifics?

    Nice! I picked up 3 of those myself. Swapped out the pallets for the integrated butt cap version, and wow, how I love how they play.

    Umm, did you order them in size 4 3/8? If so, would you consider selling me one pair of those pallets with the separate butt cap? I happen to like these older pallets better than the more recent integrated ones, and one of my sticks is 4 1/2...

    If we're talking about the same racquet (98 sq in, 16x20 pattern), I used the 'Frequency Tuning' version (red/black pj) back in 2001/2002. I did not like them, but in retrospect, I believe it was more due to the old pallet shape as by then I had adjusted to 5-7 years of Yonex. I think the black/yellow one was a tad stiffer as well.

    The frame @1990's Graphite pointed to is a completely different mold. Its the predecessor to the Magnetic Tour/ Pacific X Tour Pro frame (100 sq in, 16x19). Didn't like that one either...waaayyyy to flexible for me.

    Is X Force Pro the 18x20 pattern? If yes, it should be the same mold as the red-black No.1.

    Never even seeing a Fischer racquet one in person, only online and magazines! Interesting!

    Only old stock available, Fischer sold their tennis know how to Pacific. Focusing on winter sports.

    Wish Fischer was still in the tennis business.

    Biggest mistake they made...not allowing internet sales for their racquets...not even TW..even after TW gave a glowing awesome review of their silver/red pro one

    Best in the business as far as skiing is concerned. Doubt they regret leaving tennis behind.

    They should do. Just their tennis marketing was crap. And a total non focus on outside EU means death these days
