I'm using Weiss Cannon Scorpion 1.22 and Kirschbaum Max Power 1.2mm. Can't decide between the two which I like best.
Of the strings I tested, the one that works best with the Angell tc95 16x19, 63RA is the Weisscannon scorpion 1.22. I think the Weisscannon silverstring 1.20 should look good as well, but I did not get a chance to test it.

Good to hear!
Last week I exchanged the Focus Hex for Co Focus. I'll have my TC95 string this weekend with a hybrid setup of Head RIP Control (m) and Co Focus (c).
Co.Focus will be softer than HEX. Phenomenal that being rounded it has same spin and even better control for me.
Let us know your opinion when you will try it. :)

Hello All!
I'm tired of Wilson's BS, I feel like they aren't releasing a new blade this year and I'm down to one last 2013 wilson blade 18x20.
I apologize if this has been answered in the thread already, but 351 pages of replies are just too many to sift through.

Anyway, what strings do ya'll like in the Angell rackets? I'm going to be looking for some demoes soon and maybe become an Angel user!
In the TC95 16x19 70ra I like Hyper G 1.25. Kirschbaum Maxpower plays fine also, but stiffer. Many votes for RSLyon in those pages here, but haven't tried it myself yet.
In the 18x20 TC97 I like Msv Focus Hex 1.18.

hi all not been on here for a while, hope youre all well!?..i am going to get more Angells ordered asap as mine are old now.. question- does anyone know what SW range is with the specs on a v2 TC95 330/30.5/70ra/27in in both 16x19 and 18/20? i currently use the 16 x 19 but tempted to try the 18 x 20 and also maybe asking Paul to lower to 320g, anyone know those SW ranges for both patterns or tries them all to compare? Apologies if this already been covered but i have tried to go through alot of the pages here and havent come across that discussion.. ps, do the wraps affect SW massively as quite like the look of them!

You were one of the first, been a while between drinks? :) you still play the tc97's? I remember you selling a while back when I was searching...
I can chime in on the wraps, they added about 2-3 swingweight points on my TC100, they weigh around 2 grams, so not much at all...

Thanks DJ- yeah 2-3 points i can live with for sure.. no, havent had TC97 for ages, still have my go to sticks of TC95 16x19, also use PS97 when at work but dont like playing matches with them so gonna get some new TC95 sticks, just umming and ahhring about string patterns and weight really.. wish there was some sort of chart/graph that shows each rackets spec combos in relation to its SW range.. if i went for lighter 320g/30.5cms and decided to up it to 330g/30.5cms im guessing its relatively easy?

Cool, sounds like you just need to narrow down to what you like in terms of specs, the 95-97sq in looks to be working for you. There have been posts here with ranges according to Paul's answers. I just look at it this way, 33 or so SW points on average added after stringing, so whenever I have ordered from Paul, I asked for an unstrung spec based on that. Balance points allow 2-3 points, depending on frame and string pattern. Extra 10 grams should not be a problem, but SW points might be if you add weight to the hoop to keep the same balance, unless you add it all in the handle, but then you will have a much more head light racquet

Laver cup is simply awesome. Here is a Kevin ace from last night. Kevin and Djoker had a terrific match fighting for points all the way.

Saw highlights on YouTube this am - Anderson was awesome. Even better was Federer and Djokovic vs Sock and Anderson! And Edmund beating Sock was great for us Brits!

Terrific match Anderson and Djoker. When you see how Djoker reacts to bullets coming at him on serve return and the defense he can bring it’s unbelievable when you see it live. He won some points he had zero right to win o_O However he was very uncomfortable in doubles and clearly a weak link. Such a difference in his quality from singles to doubles. Fed is just a delight to see with that sublime touch on the court. They had these glass cubes setup in the parking lot for temporary courts so you could watch players practice. Watched a session of Dimitrov and Goffin that was lots of fun.

Never seen Novak play doubles before - clearly a learning experience for him - especially the fast ball he took to the heart instead of volleying it; and when he tagged Fed from behind! Also Fed v Nick was good - lots of creativity but also had a man v youth feel to it at times. There was some vintage Johnny Mac too.

He played doubles with Nenad Zimonjic in Davis Cup as well as on ATP Tour so he has experience. He’s just not that good at doubles, apparently.

Especially when playing against people that are quite good at doubles or play a lot more of it. The strategies and ball placements are very different after all.

My V3 TC97 18x20 is shipping! So far, really enjoying my TC95s but glad I’m in a position to compare the two with some extended play
The TC97 is an exceptional frame, regret selling mine after I moved back to 18x20 patterns. The feel of it is really nice but plays a bit club-like compared to my 90's / 93P. More like the RF97 and its just as punishing across all areas on the court. Its my second favourite Angell I tried after the 90 and I am sure you will love it :)

He was good but we are used to seeing him dominate in singles and he looked to me like he hadn’t quite figured out how he could do it at doubles yet. Mind you he was facing an on-form Anderson and a year or so ago I thought similar when I watched Sock and now he’s improved a lot and is a multiple grand slam doubles champion. Either way it’s just great to see these top single guys playing doubles. Laver Cup is great! Jealous of those seeing it live!

Of course yes. Laver Cup is good, I was in Prague a year ago and witnessed Roger and Rafa team up. Didn't care for all the marketing but that's what Laver Cup is mostly about, I guess. Haven't seen a single point of this years edition, though...

A shame, you missed out on some terrific tennis and pretty exciting competition.

Big difference between the TC95 v2 and v3 anyone?
Consistency and a lower swing weight due to the layup. Some people have confirmed they feel slightly different as would be expected with any change. However, they seem to be interchangeable and very similar overall :) Still sad that they chose to make the TC90 a 70RA in the V3...
 
TC 90 V3 is a sweet stick.
I played a TC95 63 ra for 6 months, and I have lower ra racquets in my collection as well (including a blacked out pro stock Pro Staff 90 the measures out at 54 ra)
They sit unused.

I felt a bit too much firmness with the TC90 V2 70RA so had to get rid of it. It was great when I had full gut in it though. I dont feel like gambling another $350AUD on something that is likely to have the same effect. I use the Prince 93P now and the feel and comfort is sublime


This is when I was using the TC90, it was a great frame, the best angell by far imo and only surpassed by the 93P of the frames that I have used. Still the best serving frame I have ever used.

Thanks! So many lefties at my club though haha Unfortunately I gave up my angells, the one I liked the most I couldnt risk using. They are great frames and great to play with but I am loving a thin beam 18x20 in a smaller head.

I was so lazy in that video as well, girlfriend at that stage was only playing a couple months and now she has had an extended break so hopefully get her going again soon

No worries amongst tennis geeks ;) I just got my TC97 18x20 and did a little thinking about string to start out with. I just hit last night with BZ on a TC95 and it is certainly more comfortable then hyper-g. Pretty decent topspin just doesn’t grab the ball like hyper-g does and give big kick off the bounce. A strings ability to impart spin is two components and i don’t know what is the perfect balance. Ability to snap back and grab on the ball. In a closed pattern, were space is smaller, snap back becomes less of a factor and grab on the ball becomes more important. So in topspn theory of topspin :D my TC95s and 97 need a shaped string more then a round slippery string. I will be hitting more with BZ in TC95 but i chose Revolution 1.25mm @45 lbs for first string job of the TC97. Great grab on the ball, less springy but still decent comfort (at least i hope) to match up well with more flexy hoop. That is the theory anyway so will see how it works on the court.

Looking forward to hearing how it goes... I was thinking of putting in Volkl Cyclone 18L or Volkl Cyclone Tour 18 in the Mains and BZ in the crosses for my next re-string of the TC97 18x20. That way the shaped string is in the mains and imparts spin, while the smooth BZ lets it glide and still has an ok spin potential rating itself. Hopefully, the grommets don't split, although my stringer should be good since he strings for the Pros when they come to town. I was thinking of Solinco Revolution myself, but don't know if it's too "sharp" for the Angell grommets, so looking forward to your thoughts and experiences.

I’ve not tried this in an Angell yet. But in another thread someone mentioned they used Cyclone 18L mains with Poly Tour Fire crosses. I’ve put that hybrid in another racket and so far I’m really liking it.

Yesterday I played with a freshly strung Head RIP Control 18 / MSV Co Focus 1.18mm stringbed and it felt great. Feels very much like the Focus Hex 1.10mm. No wonder as it is actually the rounded version and made of the same materials. It grabs the ball a little less than the Focus Hex but the feel is a little more comfortable.

Has anyone tried TC95 (63ra) in quite light 300g package? I'm happy with my TC100 63ra 300g, but want to try another popular frame as well. However, I'm not sure if it needs to be heaver in order get maximum from it.

Did anyone end up getting the pu grip thickness on V2 Angells? @haqq777 I know you measured 13gr trimmed, but did you end up getting some caliper readings on the thickness ?

Go heavier than 300g for the 95 if you're on 300g for the 100.

The 95 swings faster than the 100.

Hey my friend, I'm sorry but I did not measure the thickness myself. I will trust Topspn's judgment on that one. Cheers

I moved to L4 with leather and its perfect
Yeah I have been using 2 o.g's of late and feels good, but weight and balance moves. Should've used the lighter o.g's like 3gr instead of 2 x 6gr. Next V3 order will be L4
