Oh like the time he released cheesy vinyl stickers to put on the frame?
I like the frame wraps. They add weight that I would add anyways at 3 and 9. Also, they allow me to satisfy my desire to have a new frame by simply changing the color of the frame wrap. Now I can stay with the same frame, but have a black and grey/blue/white/red/teal ... Staying with one racquet for a while might do wonders for the consistency of my game (He typed while doing a playtest for a different stick).

Dude!! Stop trolling... cmon now. You have had nothing positive to add ever since you were told that you can not buy pallets. We all know it.. It is obvious you have an axe to grind. Just take it elsewhere. And people here love the frame wraps. Why comment if you have nothing to add to anything? Hell why be in Angell thread of you hate them so much??

This guy is a class act, I swear. (n) I called him out earlier as well for this same reason. He suddenly started hating Angell frames because he was told he couldn't buy a different pallet separately. Before that he was all about Angells. Best to ignore.
 
I was wondering if someone use the color wrap on their V3 rackets. I bought one for a TC97 I held for awhile, but the grip was way too small for me. I bought a TC95 V3 from someone and its on its way here. Would be interesting to see what it would look like with a mix of bronze and the Gold Color Wrap.
 
It could be just a K7 in a green PJ and we are all imagining our personal racquet fantasies :-D
Considering that the first K7 was called a "K7 Red"... I would assume that there will be other K7 colours... therefore, this is probably a K7 Green (judging by the massive 7 on the box). Now, knowing Paul, he wouldn't just throw out a new colour... therefore, I would assume it is a K7 with different specs and colour (RA, string pattern perhaps, head size, different balance and/or weight... or a combination thereof).

Or K series could mean anything :laughing: Who knows, could be just a PJ change or a new racquet. I know I’m also for a new racquet but Angell is not a large manufacturer so a variety of lines isn’t realistic

yes very interesting, have been itching for some time to get a new racket. like my k7, tempted to try tc95 but ideally should be a hybrid of both of some sort - a k7 with 315g, 7 or 8hl, 98", a bit rounder head shape, D frame, C5 grip, 16x19 ha ha, i really don't know what i am talking about but i would give it a try

yup though I suspect the green will be slightly different.. a 98sq inch fram in 16x20 in green would be novel and provide an option for all those who used to swing Fischers.

and well... green
 
Hi!

Can anyone compare TC97 Custom 300grs 7pts HL 18x20 with Wilson Ultra Tour?

Thanks!

Last time I played them back to back was year ago, so my memories are fading. TC97 18x20 was 310g unstrung. But both were customized to have the same SW. TC97 had more power, more spin, bigger serve and about the same control. The feel on UT was great, however it had a ceramic sound on contact. TC97 has thinner beam, which I like. But then again UT felt a tad more stable at net because of thicker beam. Ended up selling both, got V3 TC95 16x19 RA63 and Vantage 90 RA63 and never looked back.

If they survive the gentle treatment :-D Sorry, couldn’t help myself :D
 
If you go NG in mains and BZ crosses, I’d personally start 56/52lbs on TC100. TC100 is a good frame that hits a pretty heavy ball, you’ll enjoy it and your elbow will thank you after pure drive.
I agree with confort and heavy ball on TC100...but not so much control...

Seems like not many are using color wraps on their v3's.. Here is a tc95 owener with the UK wrap

 
I have 3 of the V3 (TC97 18x20) and although I liked the wraps on my V2 racquets, I think black/copper V3 colors are classy as is without any add ons and wraps would just look a tad tacky for my taste. No wraps for me on mine.
Agree, the V3's are like exotic luxury cars, you wouldn't go putting on cheesy decals on them... I think only certain colors could work if someone wanted to add a splash ..maybe another dab of copper...
 
Topspn went all in on the V3 TC95 63Ra 16x19 now? What a legend! Every time I come on here hebhas changed rackets again :D. I am no doctor but I can diagnose Racketholism when I see it :p.
Yes, my TC95 18x20s were owned and played by the legendary topspn, which means every chip, scrape, and string job only adds to their value. They will soon be too valuable to ever part with:-D

Edit: Just to clarify, the frames have no chips or scrapes ... but if they did ...

lol..I played the TC95 16x19 for a long time then moved up to the TC100. I missed more precision i get from TC95 but also got curious about the 18x20. So i got both patterns to compare and really enjoyed the 18x20 and wanted to keep next to my 16x19. Then my buddy @Pneumated1 started asking when i’d sell my 18x20s till I finally admitted to myself they will see little playing time and sold them :laughing: True story and your remarks also true. I am curious about different racquets and strings and always happy to try.

You were a good sport from the beginning because I was pushing you the moment you posted pics of them in the thread. When you gravitated to the 16x19 and started talking about Chicago winter and indoor tennis, I knew the perfect storm/opportunity was forming.

What topspn says is true. I literally messaged him and was like, 'Want to sell your frames?":laughing: A few weeks passed, and I had both of his 18x20s, which were the missing pieces of the puzzle for me to making a phenomenal frame actually work. It's a funny story, but we're both better off with our current gear. And I freely proclaim that his generosity is truly legendary -- or he's a holic who couldn't help himself:-D

What is a man without a vice? :laughing:
 
:-D I’ve signed up for racquetholics anonymous, working on 12 steps and everything :p
Don't do anything drastic; I thought we'd swap frames in a year or so ...

But seriously, I can do so much more with this 18x20. And v.3, regardless of the string pattern, just improves on the uniform flex of the TC95. It's such a 'balanced' feel on contact.
