After four months I found V3 TC 95 16x19 it is a completely different frame than V2 ... Less power ... Different flexibility ...Less maneouvrable but more control and stable...
Do you found something similar ?

I guess because not everyone wants to customise their sticks, and this is/should be a better overall stock setup for a doubles frame.

I've made my reds way more head light anyway so for me it just means less weight in the handle to get to my preferred specs.
Why the increase in weight? 305g and Paul would have gotten my money straight away. I can customise myself..

It is minute bit different. A bit better connection and control does seem to be a tad better.

only thing that let the k7 red down for me was the lack of plough. Didn’t mind it being low powered, felt frame had excellent control for a 16x19. I don’t quite know what the characteristics of the lime will matchup with the red? I’m guessing with the extra weight of the lime, similar power with more plough/stability and control? Interested.

The extra weight comes from extra silicone in the cable (10 grams more). This will provide greater comfort, however in the matter of power in theory will be lower due to the racket possessing the same swingweight and denser string

I have the V1, V2 and V3 in the same specifications. I also have the feeling that the V3 is less maneuverable, has more control and more stability, but has maintained the same power level. My V2 and V3 have the same swingweight (307 unstrung).

Absolutely spot on regarding lack of plow. I could not dictate play with that stick even after adding weight. I did only play with it for a week and sold it so perhaps not a fair shake but initial impression was a downer for me.

By contrast, I am really liking my V3 TC97 18x20. Not the same plow as I get from my TC100 obviously but it has better plow, and control than K7. I am still finagling with string choices but I am really digging the feedback and slowly getting my groove back. I use Babolat POP at times and I am getting some really good PIQ scores lately.

I am also interested in K7 Lime and look forward to reviews here. A direct comparison with TC97 18x20 would be nice. And like you, I am also curious about a direct comparison with K7 Red.

I'm in the UK so hopefully should get mine pretty soon after it's dispatched on the 17th, should get some decent court time with it over Xmas too for a review/comparison with the k7 red.

Hi guys,

I know it was mentioned here and explained in depth but I cant seem to find it.

remove staples from the butt cap, remove 2 larger staples from the middle of the pallet, use an exectu knife to slice the glue where 2 halves meet, peel it off slowly.

Always so helpful. Thanks so much @saleem! I will PM you if I get into trouble lol - wife hair dryer of any use at any time?

I would heat the pallet with your wife's hair dryer very well before removing the pallet. Some people use a heat gun, others wrap the pallet and boil it briefly in water, but my wife's hair dryer always worked for me on my Volks.
Thanks! That's really helpful! :)

Love the fact in a year or so when my daughter moves up a frame size she'll be able to use the same racket as me!
that is a very good point. that is if you/we are still using the same one.. lol

my daughter is on 23" atm, so the K7 range would be a very cool upgrade for her too

Since they have the Lux string sale, I decided to try an experiment with BB original on TC95. Anyone try on their TC yet?

I have tried babolat vs team 17 mains with Luxilon Ace 18 54/50 in tc95 comfort and feel was very good, power was little too much for my taste.
I might try OG sheep syn full bed end of winter but still chilly outdoor on one of my TC95s. Just a comfy setup since poly gets a bit brittle in the cold

Am currently noticing that Hyper G definitely feels stiffer in low temps than in more temperate ones. Less oomph and spin and I’m less likely to get away with off centre hits. In the same racquet last winter, Cyclone Tour retained its spin, power, comfort and feel better even when the temps were near freezing. Like them both though. Admittedly that isn’t an Angell but I mention it in case helpful re the strings people use as it’s a direct comparison.

Still have tons of string so used some Head Hawk 1.30 and upped the tension a bit to 48lbs. Good thing cause BK plays with a little better control. Still played beautifully so glad I’ll be able to use up the Hawk packs I have. Two TC95s have BK and the 3rd is for some string experimentation. I’ll be trying Bear Claw 1.29, BB original, ALU power 15g

Wow, you are still playing outdoors? Hats off. You are a man of steel. I play indoors and complain if heating isn't full blown on at times (and then complain if it gets too hot, lol). You are right, poly definitely gets brittle in cold temp. Feedback changes so much too.

Goodness no, that’s for March/April or an odd day we’re it is sunny and 40s or 50s. It’s totally indoor now brrrrr :eek:

Haha yeah makes sense now. I was thinking how you are playing outdoors right now in Chicago, of all the places. I just re-read your post and get it now.

I can be stupid sometimes but I am totally a warm weather guy who suffers these cold bleak winters. Chicago winters suck and I often have to grab indoor courts 6am to find reervations :X3:

In the 40s here in uk now - still folk playing outdoors! We have a bubble too now - but not heated so temps are similar, but drier. This time last year we had 10” of snow and it was below freezing. Still played in the bubble! Thought you Yanks were tough?

:laughing: Nah, that’s only in the movies! Today was low 40s so doable if pretty desperate to play but it was pretty wet. Chicago winter is brutal and 40s is like a summer day :-D Seriously, i generally avoid outdoors till it is at least high 40s or into the 50s. I don’t know why we don’t have these bubbles here as well, it should be easy and we already have a problem with the high demand for indoor courts.

Not all of them so maybe just a way to bring them to spec
I thought that too but the answer from Angell was that all k7 is that way.... To be honest i prefer that way but in case i order a second one i would be disappointed not to have Silicone as it will feel different

I previously had with and without silicone so maybe they are all made with silicone now
