Add me to the Michael Valek fan club, top notch.
Before I pull the trigger on some Pacific pro 90s, does anyone here use these sticks? Currently use volkl pb 10 mid, wondering how they compare, been a long time since my vac pro days and wonder if the Pacific has a different feel? Also advice on string setups, usually go with a gut poly hybrid. Lastly, can anyone compare the 90 and 95? Thanks for all the help.
I've never hit w/ the 90, but there were a bunch of threads on the Pacific version a few years ago. A quick Google search gives me some links to a few of the threads:
Additionally, TW posted an extensive review on Facebook a few years ago (also found from the Google search):
As far as strings go...I'm a gut/poly guy myself, and prefer the 17g Pacific Tough Gut / 1.25mm Yonex Poly Tour Pro (aka, YPTP) combination. However, Tough Gut has been increasing in price a bunch lately, and the 17g seems hard to come by, so I've been experimenting w/ others. Nothing to write home about so far, although the new Wilson 17g looks promising. I'd reconsider Pacific Classic, but I can never find it in 17g.
I had a great time since summer on my Pacific X force with Babolat VS gut 1.30/YPT 1.25, but at the moment i m triying an hybrid with Head velocity multi/wilson revolve and it uis also very nice.
After trying more tha 40 frames for the last 5 years, i m commited to stick to the Pacific X force (i ve got 2, added some lead at 6 and 9 and are now 320 gr trung).
16*20 is the best string pattern for my game, lots of control but still spinny and powerful to play in clay courts.
The stiffness of the raquet (58 RA) make it barely impossible to have any arm issues if your technique is decent, and suits very much my game style (clay baseliner retiever). Besides it could be stringed with natural gut or muti that will break to fast in other sticks or be too powerful (so many times i read here how people like a string because is so "low powered" and get "control" with it.
Isn t better to have a low powered racket and adjust with a confort and powerful gut instead of trying to tame the power of a Aeropro with a Luxilon Alu power? a stiff racket needs a stiff poly to get control, bad bussiness for you body)
I encourage anyone to try this stick (or the previous Fischer model, pro 1).
Those rare moments you got evidence of the specifications of a Fischer frame must be cherished. This is the Pro 1 X-Lite which is just the Pro No1 mold with an unstrung weight of 260 gram. Too low for me, still think this stick is worth mentioning. Note the big tolerance of +- 6 gram.
