Hot damn I’ve missed a lot!
Hated Hyper G in the Vantage 95s... more inconsistent responses from the string bed. So far, nothing tops the YPTSG in the string department. Ordered a few sets of Black Knight, should be here Wednesday! Also joining a local club to start really playing again.

Hope y’all are well!

I am trying some reverse psychology on her this time. If she buys me this, I will stop with this "racquet nonsense" for good. No really, I swear :happydevil::X3:
OMG..you two will be able to write best seller soon on husband and wife dynamics and raquetholism :-D May i get a signed edition please? I need to learn to deal with the GF

I didn’t really have any complaints but decided to add 3g tungsten to 3&9 on one of my TC95s just to see how it plays. It started to bludgeon the ball :eek: On volleys the string bed started to feel more springy. Serves were simply kickass!. Anyway, i didn’t favor the more springy feel with the added weight and thought I needed to up the tension with the added weight. I like the overall playability without this weight addition so off it goes.

Can anyone tell me the main differences between K7 and Tc97 310grs, 18x20?

I’m seeking a more controll oriented pattern but I found the open pattern K7 pretty good for that too!

I have 1/2 gram each side on my tc95s, it works well and brought my MgR/I closer to desired specs.

The TC97 18x20 is stiffer, has a lower launch angle and a smaller sweetspot.
On the other side it produces a better slice backhand and is a little more precise, in my opinion. The K7 is better for spin.

My guess is- it’s cheaper. Change the drill pattern on K7, paint it green and use existing grommets from TC95/TC97 18x20.
While for TC100 18x20 new mould for grommets is needed.

hmm..I’d tend to think that’s a small cost compared to tooling changes for new drill pattern to the frame, flow pattern, etc. Anyway, I am not an expert by any means on racquet manufacturing.

I’m no expert either I remember someone mentioning that costs for the new grommet’s mould is around 7K £. Probably no big deal for big manufacturers, but considerable investment for smaller manufacturers.

this is the overall investment for tooling change not just grommets. I had this conversation with you know who ;)

Seriously? I have never seen that in an 18x20 before. Still i suspect similar to TC95 and TC97, it would have 8 mains in the throat.
Yeah there are a few, the 100p is a beauty and I feel the 6 mains make it great. My racquet the 97s 2015 also has 18mains and 6 in the throat!

The K7 Lime sounds very interesting to me as I was just looking for a little more forgiven frame (with a bigger headsize and a little lower swingweight) than my TC95 18x20 63RA.

I was considering to buy one of the following Dunlop CX 2.0 Tour or NT Tour (both in 18x20 and 16x19 versions) or CX 2.0 but Paul announced the K7 Lime just in time.

Now I think I still would rather buy the K7 because the continuity of the Angell models and the over frame grommet structure (where you can hide your lead strips underneath).

I read on Instagram that the K7 has a swingweight of 290 (unstrung) 315 grams and 10pts HL balance. I guess I'll replace it with a leather grip and add about 5 grams at 3 and 9 o'clock position in order to achieve a similar weight and balance as my TC95.

Now I would like to see more pictures of the emerald K7! :D

Same SW as the 'Red' so I wouldn't expect a big difference in power tbh

I agree. The K7 Red is a low power racquet. The problem is that in trying to increase her potency, she totally loses control. I could not find a balance. This new version at 18x20, I think it will enable a higher level of power, with a lot of control.

18/20 would be more low power but definetely would like to see some reviews, the K7 Red is significal less power than the tc95 you have?

Yes 18x20 has less power, but in this pattern you can increase power with more control. The K7 Red has less power than my TC95 16x19 63ra.
