I have one , for sale, is you are looking fo one of them.I totally agree!!! I have tried the Pro #1 Fischers: Black/Red, Green/ Red and the yellow/green heavy version. The first two felt the best! I also tried the Pacific X Force Pro....was not close to the feel of the Fischers. Pacific never matched the feel of the originals. Out of curiosity I want to try the Pacific- X Feel Pro 90 as I have the Original Fischer Vacuum Pro 90, great racquet. I agree with the stiffness of the Pacific's over the Fischers.
Its a sad thing that these rackets garner no attention.... As far as I can tell only 1 retailer n the US now? Used to be at least 4 when under Fischer name. My first was the Fischer Pro Classic AirCarbon Ti 98. Unbelievable with Polylon mains and Prince synthetic crosses w/tourna string savers. That unique thunk, ball pocketing, and precision was like a revelation as to what tennis was aboutI always love to see this Fischer faction thread bump
Silly as it is but I like this
I'm not an engineer so I couldn't say why they are so special. That said, some people don't like their feel.Can anyone explain how these are so arm friendly. What technology is used?
Completely agree... Love my Fischer Vacuum Pro 95 330g 20mm Straight Beam (Orange and Black). Great feel, arm loves it, great control and awesome power (when desired).Can anyone explain how these are so arm friendly. What technology is used? I play with Duel G 97 310 and got a Pacific Pro Tour 97 and there is a huge difference in how my arm feels after playing with the Duel, now that I'm used to the Pacific absorbing all the bad stuff. They are strung exactly the same and match in weight and balance.
The Pacific is supposed to also have a higher RA, 67 compared to the Yonex's 64. The Pacific does feel a bit stiffer, but in no way does my arm hurt after after playing. Is it the secret sauce in the vacuum process? If anyone can explain their technology further I'd appreciate it.
Completely agree with you... Love my Fischer Pro 95 330g (Orange and Black), as mentioned in previous post.Indeed, this one is incredible. I have one -- among 13 others Pro Classics, it's the one that I like most. Unbelievable feel.
When I first hit with a Fischer exactly 20 years ago, it was indeed a revelation as you said mellowyellow. That was the blue Pro Classic 98 (1998 version).
I came from a Head Ti Fire and I could not believe how easy and comfortable it was to hit a tennis ball. No vibration, maximum comfort and control. Never looked back since then.
I wish to had have discover those gems some many years ago too...
But it's never too late! Long live to Fishers!!!
A proud owner of (only) five...
Well, the gold version also has "Fischer Austria" written above the grip, and the silver doesn't... or does it have it elsewhere?.
To all Fischer experts:
Fischer VT 98 Pro 320g "Silver" vs "Gold" version!
Same specs, same paintjob, same stickers theme.
Differences: All the silver stickers are gold on the second racquet.
eg. the "TECHNIC" word and the rectangular around "98" is silver on the above (the most common version - all images I've found online are silver) and gold on the racquet below. Additionally, the yellow stickers are more light on the "Silver" and more dark (to orange) on the "Gold"...
- Have you ever seen this "Goldy version" ?
- Could be a release from a different year (eg 1998 vs 1999) ?
Do you have any other thought about it?
Yes, that's the same one with a different paint job of course.My charity shop Fischer collection - there’s a Pro 1 FT somewhere too but I hear it’s the black sheep of the Ried family!
Is the Pro Classic 90 from the same lineage as Stich’s 1991 Vacuum Pro?
No, "Fischer Austria" it's on the same place.Well, the gold version also has "Fischer Austria" written above the grip, and the silver doesn't... or does it have it elsewhere? I like the gold one better... just personally.
Pretty sure my 4 blue/pink 98s were 320g; had a metallic red/burgundy 330g also.Hi all Fischer fans! Does anyone know if the original Vacuum Midplus Pro (first gen tapered beam, blue/pink paintjob) had a 320gr version?
I recently got one in great condition, at 337gr (strung with Luxilon Smart and with a Tecnifibre replacement grip)
There are no stickers on it, so I wonder if it's just way off specs. In case there was only a 330gr version, do you remember if it had a leather grip? (that would bring the weight up to specs). Haven't tried it yet due to injury, but, based on your comments, I can't wait
I have hit w/ the 105UL only a handful of times, and that was years ago.
A good friend of mine used them for years, until I finally convinced him to upgrade to the Pacific version (X Force Comp).
From my recollection, at first he felt the X Force Comp was a tad stiffer, and swung a little heavier. I now believe the 'heavier swing' feeling is likely due to the perceived 1/8" extension you get when converting from the old-style bulbous buttcap to the pallet w/ the integrated buttcap (see https://tt.tennis-warehouse.com/ind...-frame-demo-round.593034/page-3#post-11844360 for detailed photos). The 'tad stiffer' was likely due to his 105UL being 6 years old...Hi Mac,
Could you or the good friend of yours can compare the Fischer 105 UL with the Pacific X Force Comp?
How close those racquets play each other? Which do you prefer?
Thank you in advance!
Sorry, maybe my english is pure......
To add, not that results equal 'good racquet', he was an integral part of the Mid Atlantic team that won 4.5 Nationals this year (and will likely be re-bumped to 5.0 when ratings are released next week). I believe his record was on the order of 16-1 at the 4.5 level, going undefeated in every post-season match.
Hahahaha. I guess I was trying to get across (albeit poorly) that my friend is a pretty decent player. I think people sometimes have this stigma of players who use light, oversize frames...Sorry, maybe my english is pure...
With that paragraph you mean that Pacific is even better?
Yes I know that guys.Hahahaha. I guess I was trying to get across (albeit poorly) that my friend is a pretty decent player. I think people sometimes have this stigma of players who use light, oversize frames...
XForce Comp has the UL specs.I don't know the specs of the Pacific X Force Comp to compare but...
I play w/ the 105 SL altho I also have the UL as well but haven't played with it for quite some time. My wife uses the UL.
Few weeks ago, I strung up the UL (same string/tension) hoping I'd get more racket head speed and gain some stamina
playing against a stronger player (and much more fitness/stamina).
Well that didn't work out as I'd hoped. Couldn't get as much depth nor pace, it just felt too light, esp against his heavy balls.
Went back to the SL and ahhh, nice again.
...in order to write a direct comparison (who many ask for) between Pacific X Force Comp 105 (292g unstrung - same mold & weight like Fischer M Speed / M Pro No 1 105 UL versions) and the Fischer M Speed Pro No 1 105 SL (320g unstrung).As I was afraid Pacific X Force Comp is a very good racquet, far better than any 2010+ stick I've try - but on the other side, has almost nothing to compare with unique Fischer feel... Of course the light weight does not helps too.But I have the Fischer virus and I'll never get over it!
So I have two (very hard to be found) Comps L3 grip FS now, one brand new unstrug and another 9.9/10.If anyone is interested just pm me.
