What was it about your game that made Paul suggest the 97 would be better?
I think the big thing was that I specifically mentioned I wanted more flex in the upper hoop of the racquet. Coming from the Head Graphene XT Radical Pro, I wanted something that was going to be less stiff but with similar specs (granted my Rad Pro is weighted in the handle so it's a little more HL and heavier than the stock version).
 
Topspn I’m really intrigued by the K7. Currently playing with a Pure Strike 17 and love it but even playing mostly doubles I have some shoulder pain. Originally I was interested in tc100 but I’m thinking it wouldn’t be whippy enough for me. If you can compare the PS17 to the K7 I would be very greatful. I have a OHBH and also a SW forehand.

That’s a pretty interesting question, never thought i’d be comparing these two. I also really liked the P17 but would get discomfort in the forearm and decided it just wasn’t worth it. The two have some things in common, after all they are both 98s with responsive and very generous sweet spots. Both are very mobile easy to handle frames that are equally adept at offensive or defensive shots. Except they do it in completely different feel. P17 is muted pretty firm with excellent power yet control is good with the tighter string bed in the middle. k7 is like butter in comparison with a flexy pockety controlled power. P17 gets the nod on power and K7 on control. My 1hbh loves them both and while the feel is so different, they are both versatile sticks that encourage taking cuts at the ball.

how would you compare the launch angle of k7 and p17? With babolat despite tight string pattern I often hit the ball on out. Power lvl+ launch angle combo was just bad for my game. TC95 18x20 is awesome in that department. I wish I could have slightly more maneuverability and forgiveness. That would be a perfect stick then :) dr 98 was quite similar to p17 but much more control oriented and neutral ball launch imo. Overall dr 98 is much better than p17 :)
 
Never quite understood how the P17 got such high TW rating? Was horrendous when I hit with it, barely had a few minutes with it. There was zero feeling with the P17 never hit with a frame where I felt so disconnected with it. K7 you actually feel the shots you are hitting,
 
The new Pure Strike 16×19 (Project One Seven) is one of those racquets that I hit absolutely a sublime ball with. Just 2g at 12 and a leather grip and I was hitting a bigger ball than my TC100 - which absolutely pulverizes the ball when I make a go at it. My sparring partners were commenting on how the ball had vicious height after bouncing and how heavy the ball was on contact. I am not even a tall guy, barely 5'9" on good days and I hit with dudes over six feet tall.

If only the PS17 was a comfortable racquet. I sold all three of my matched racquets simply because it is just not comfortable. I have nothing but good things when it comes to playability of the racquet.

Even in stock form, simply throw on a leather grip (or something like Shock Shield for comfort and added weight to the handle), it hits pretty amazing. That said, it does have hollow feel for some and is definitely not for everyone. I played with Babolats growing up and I don't mind their feedback at all personally.

I will have to disagree with you on DR98/P17. DR98 has higher launch angle and in all honesty a nice stick but i fail to think of one single thing it does better then the P17. And this is from a Yonex fan ;) Oh well, tomato tomaatoo. Zero problems with launch angle on K7, i can flatten out when i want with good precision.

LUFC, i'm very interested in the K7 frame but feel that the TC100 is the best volleying racquet I've ever used. I think its very whippy and very stable with excellent put away power to include pace, cut shot or drop shots. My last 3 frames were PS97, Ai98 and Head IG Rad Pro all good volleyers in their own way. I plan to purchase a K7 in the near term and hope to test them side by side. I personally like the Pure Strike 100 better than the Pure Strike 17. I kind of agree with ed70 with my experience with the PS 17. Oh, the TC100 has been absolutely fantastic for my OHBH.

TC100 is an awesome racquet +1

If only the PS17 was comfortable, exactly! That’s the only reason I’m looking to change as for me it does everything well. Since you have experience of both the PS17 and TC100 can I ask if the TC swings fast? Sometimes I have a tendency to be late on my ohbh and don’t need a racket that will exasperate that problem. What spec TC did you go for?

I also had an AI98 but preferred the stiffer feel of the pure strike. Also think the PS does everything better and I for sure play better with it. Can you comment on the flex/ stiffness of the three? Thanks for your help.

That’s exactly what I was looking to say about the feel ‘hollow’ which is really not the type of frame I like.

I have quite a few racquets (much to the wife's disdain, I must add). Five are 63RA Custom TC100, and two are 70RA Custom TC100. I also have one Custom TC97 as well (just in the Angell line up).

As for my TC100 you inquired about, one is 330g/305mm, three are 310g/315mm and one is 320g/310mm - all Custom TC100 63 RA. Swingweight ranges from 330-340 which is what I like. The 70 RA ones have lower swing weight obviously and they are not in my bag at the moment. Really like those a lot too.

The Pure Strikes I had were customized with weight at 12 and handle and I bought them matched from TW and they landed in same swing weight range as my TC100. For me they swung pretty much the same. If I took the weight off they probably would have swung faster.

As I mentioned in my post above, 63RA swingweight need an adjustment period and once you do get dialed in, it plays sublime. Depends on how willing you are to give time to adjust. That is why I love all my 63RA TC100. That said, if you feel you will be hard pressed to adjust to hefty swingweight of 63RA TC100, I will definitely recommend you try the 70RA one. OHBH requires good footwork and timing, definitely will be hard at first with heavier swingweight (especially if you are late on the ball). But pretty rewarding once it connects.

you probably played with a lime dr version, not blue xDD ( CRAZY THEORIES !)

That’s exactly my stage : still adapting the SW and sweetspot in my TC100s (310grs/315mm).
Not easy,indeed.But from those few ball that I could hit on the right timming, I realize that this frame is indeed very unique!

Can you please advise me about possible setup strings for this frame?

I’m testing it for the first time with hybrids on both frames:gut/poly and poly/multifilaments on other frame,21 and 23 kgs.
I’m feeling more connected with second option(poly- mains, multi -crosses),maybe because I have the poly on the mains(?) and a more controled tension too.

Next, I’ll try stringing them with lower gauges, in order to try bringing SW to a lower level.

Excellent that you are giving it a try atleast :) - I love RS Lyon in that frame. Also like WC Silverstring, Yonex Poly Tour Pro and Yonex Poly Tour Spin as well. I loved Solinco Hyper-G too but a couple pounds tighter than usual because of the strings playing characteristics. The racquet is very string sensitive and I feel it sort of amplifies the feel of string you are playing with more than any other Angell line I have tried. I string around 50-52lb mark. I love full bed poly in that frame. I also would like to try Halo 2 string given feedback I have read on here. But have not gotten a chance to give that string a fair shake yet. Perhaps @topspn or other more knowledgabe posters can advise better on Halo strings as I do not have a lot experience with them.

I think you covered all the good poly options! I personally settled on Hyper-g 16L @53lbs. I also liked Revolve spin @52lbs. Really enjoy Halo 2 on the K7 but I think it may be a bit lively for TC100 or i’d certainly try it @54lbs and see. Totally agree, this frame plays better full poly and pretty string sensitive.
 
I settled on the iso speed black fire 1.25. Played it in TC100 70RA, ordered a reel and will string K7. Until then I play cyclone tour 1.3 in K7 and it seem not bad too.
 
Doing some more research into the TC100 I came across the following review. Damn now I’m really confused. By the way it’s the 63ra version being reviewed.

“As the feel and comfort of this racket did not come close to my expectations it’s not really as compelling an option as it was looking to be, which is actually very sad. So with a couple of competitive matches the remainder of this week to close out the winter season I’ll be reverting to my Babolat Pure Strike 1x6x19 (ProjectOne7), which amazingly feels less stiff and more comfortable. And if my arm insists it will be the Prince Phantom that comes out of the bag.”

Well all I can can say my TC100, 330g, 9 pts HL although hefty is a sweet stick.

Yes, It is a great stick but quite firm feeling
 
Yesterday I also ordered the Tc100(70Ra).
Unfortunately, there is no chance to test the racquet before in Germany.
I hope the racket is similar to the Dr100, just not so stiff and more armfriendly. Paul said to me, that the 70RA is 65 RA when handle and grip installed and strung.
Can someone compare the TC100(70RA) with DR100....Power,Control,Comfort,Feel...Easy to play.?

Hey guys! First post on this forum for me but I'm a long time reader of this thread. I decided to get an Angell as my next racket of choice. However, I have some small questions left and I hope you can help me out.

1) I don't know my NTRP rating as I'm from Germany but I'm a quite experienced player (played for 12 years know). Forehand (flat and top spin) is my strongest weapon. Hitting my OHBH relatively flat most of the time. My first serve is also quite a weapon but my second serves are definitely lagging behind my ground strokes and will be my main goal to improve this season. Out of this thread I decided that TC95 16x19 63RA will be my best fit (I also tried a friend's SV95 some time ago and really liked it). Will probably go for the 320g / 10HL or the 330g / 12HL version and lead it up to my desired SW. However, I'm also tempted by the TC100 ... how exactly does it compare to the TC95? I would assume it has more torsional stability i.e. higher TW and a bit more power compared to the TC95 but lacking a bit of (directional control). Is this correct?

2) I read the grip size of the TCs fall out a bit smaller compared to other manufacturers. I'm usually playing a 3/8 with Oehms leather and an OG and like smaller grip sizes. However, I'm afraid that my fingers will touch my palm if the Angells really turn out to be smaller (as the gap is currently quite small). In that case I would probably go for a 4/8 (I want to avoid to change pallets afterwards though).

3) Apperantly used Angells are selling really good in the States which is great to hear. Has anyone made experience with selling them here in Germany?

Thanks for your help guys! :)

loool..i have a bunch of adjectives for this compare of the P17 and TC100 but I’ll be polite. I am already on record as loving the playability of the p17 but comfort wise, TC100 in either RA is ahead. 63 RA as stated before is very string sensitive so as example I hated RPM in it. Any stiffer poly is not a good fit.

Kauf dir am liebsten den TC 97 mit dem 16x19 Saitenbild. Der TC 95 ist für Spieler die von beiden Seiten mit sehr viel Geschwindigkeit und Spin agieren meines Erachtens. Ich finde der TC 97 hat auch eine viel bessere Torsionsresistenz. Ohne mindestens 3g auf 3 und 9 Uhr würde ich den TC 95 nicht empfehlen, und dann ist das wahrlich eine Kanone, welche aggressiven Spin braucht um kontrolliert zu werden. Der 97 ist da vielseitiger und hat wie ich finde sowohl besseres Gefühl als auch bessere Kontrolle. Dazu kommt dass der Schläger relativ fehlerverzeihend ist.

Woher kommst du denn aus Deutschland?

1. You don’t need to lead up. Just ask for the static weight and balance you want then ask Paul to target a unstrung SW for you. For TC95 63RA you’d probably get a range of 295-308 or so SW.

2. Wow i need a full forefinger gap on my grips. Custom pallets on Angell run small for me and i switched to L4. People have complained about twist and stability of the racquets sometimes and I felt a bit of twist until i switched to the proper grip size and zero twist now. Not to mention hitting with more relaxed strokes

3. Nope, but they do sell easy on the forum from what i noticed.

Aus Bayern (Nähe Augsburg), falls das dir was sagt. Woher du?

Ja der 97 klingt ja auch verlockend. Ist glaub ist auch die große Frage, ob man den gleichmäßigen Flex oder den im Kopfbereich vom Spielgefühl bevorzugt. Komfortabel sollen sie ja beide sein. Werde auf jeden Fall auch nochmal Paul nach Rat fragen. Vielleicht werde ich auch mal beide ausprobieren und mal schauen welcher mir besser gefällt ;) Ist halt nur die Frage, ob man die Angells auch wieder gebraucht losbekommt (sind ja nicht so bekannt bei den üblichen Vereinsspielern).

Was sind deine Erfahrungen zu den Griffgrößen? Fallen die Angells passend aus oder lieber eine Nummer größer kaufen?

Ok I will definitely ask Paul for my target SW.
Yeah, I really like a small gap between my fingers and my palm. Makes the racket feel really whippy imo. My hand is also really relaxed during strokes and I never had any problems with my forearm or wrist.

Vielleicht werde ich auch mal beide ausprobieren und mal schauen welcher mir besser gefällt ;) Ist halt nur die Frage, ob man die Angells auch wieder gebraucht losbekommt (sind ja nicht so bekannt bei den üblichen Vereinsspielern).

Was sind deine Erfahrungen zu den Griffgrößen? Fallen die Angells passend aus oder lieber eine Nummer größer kaufen?
Ich wohne im Main Taunus Kreis, in der Nähe von Frankfurt.

Ich fand den 97 deutlich komfortabler muss ich sagen, der 95 biegt gefühlt fast weg beim Schlag und dreht sich daher merkbar in der Hand, was unkomfortabel ist. Auch fühlt man beim Schläger mehr Vibrationen wie ich finde.

Ich mag griff 2, habe sie aber in Griff 3 gestestet. Es ging gerade so, etwas größer als was ich gewohnt war, aber wahrscheinlich keine ganze Größe größer.

Frage mal @808 ob er dir aushelfen kann. Mir hat er damals großzügigerweise seine Angell Schläger zum Testen ausgeliehen. Wenn ich mich nicht irre, ist er nicht allzu weit entfernt sesshaft (München).

I am rather worried by the upper hoop flex of TC97. Didn't notice tc95 was torsionally unstable. 18x20 here.
Didn’t know you can read German :)

I had the 16x19, and it twisted badly without lead at the sides. The TC 97 should have no problem at a comparable swingweight I’d think. Just a few grams at 12 resolve the issue from what I’ve heard, and I found the frame nice and solid in the upper hoop myself while testing it alongside other Angell frames (all frames with a thick stiff poly at low tensions).

Well, I didn't realize you both communicate in German. :) - Have Deutsche Philologie als zweites Fach, long ago wrote two books on Max Scheler and Edmund Husserl...

Thanks for the tips, I will definitely try both of them.
 
Aus Bayern (Nähe Augsburg), falls das dir was sagt. Woher du?

Richtig, München.

Meld Dich bei mir, ich kann Dir gerne die TC95 und TC97 – beide 16x19 – zum Testen schicken. Griffstärke 3, Griffschalen Typ A (Head), Leder. Komme aber wohl erst frühestens übernächste Woche dazu.

I have the TC95 and the TC97. Reliably depending on the ball the TC95 rotates sideways. The TC95 is an excellent frame, a frame that generates a good power, superior to the TC97. Because of this I put 4 grams of lead at 3 and 9 hours on the TC97 to increase the power slightly. If it does not work, I'll take that weight off at 3 and 9 o'clock and add 2 grams at 12 o'clock. I will test these possibilities this week.
