TC100 seems almost PA like out of control...only easier on the body [emoji23]. I need to get me a TC95 soon [emoji28]

Hit with TC100 today for a bit and felt out of control compared to my TC95s. I had to put it down and grab a TC95..mama mia
I bought 2 tc100s 2 tc97 and 1 tc95 few years back, played with all of them for a while, sold my tc100s 1st (I think you bought 1 of mine) it was hard to choose between tc97 and tc95 but I went with tc95 and never looked back, sold tc97s and bought 2 more tc95s.

Yeah, I remember that story. I did sell one of my TC100s 63RA but couldn’t sell the rest. I feel at home with TC95 and flipping to TC100 wasn’t seamless today. I’ll keep for the time being so it isn’t just @haqq777 sabotaging his game :laughing:

Today I played for the first time with an old head intelligence i.radical...
It's really like playing 2 different game compared to the Tc95 16/19...
The type of racquet plays a really big role in the game...

I definitely feel at home with this type of launch angle (the head one). For me it's like having to worry at every shot to over hit and going long versus freely swing and always stay in the court (or in the net of course).

To each his own...

The best iteration of the Radical line, IMHO [emoji41]

Ok long time reader first time poster (to this thread). In my attempt to try every modern 18x20 frame out there I have joined the club and picked up a K7 Lime. My question is—how do you pronounce Angell? Is it like the deity with wings angel? Or like angle in geometry? Or neither?

It’s the winged variety. According to Paul - it’s his name / company so he knows!

Way more important: how do you like the racket. And tell us more about your 18x20 quest!

18x29 must be a control oriented frame, no? [emoji6]

Never thought this day would come, but I have a TC95 on the way. [emoji849][emoji16]
Hopefully V3 would have a tad less vibrations, we’ll see.

The curse of being a racquetaholic. [emoji16]

Anybody who can directly compare the V2 and V3 TC95 18x20 RA 63? I'm super happy with my TC95 (320g 12) but am thinking of getting one with slightly more weight in the 330g option. Now that the V3 is out, it's hard to fight the urge to get one and try it.

I can’t give you a direct compare of TC95 18x20 in V2 and V3. Just general observations of V2 and V3 based on TC95 16x19 and TC100. V3 seems to be a bot more maneuverable probably due to slightly less SW in general. I also think the V3 is less muted and i feel I get better touch. Everything else is pretty much the same so its a very subtle difference

Haven’t hit the K7 yet so I’ll keep you posted. Here’s my list in order of preference for the 18x20 racquets-
93p
360 pro
Blade
Ultra tour
Tec LTD DC
Srixon 200 tour

Would still love to try the P17 18x20 and both versions of the Prince 100p. Also maybe the speed touch.

How much power do you get with the tc95 in 18/20 pattern compared to the 16/19 pattern or other frames I know like Prince tt100p and old head radical like the intelligence series?

A little less and on serve as well but it is more directional control and precision

What can people tell me about Halo 1 and Halo 3? I've tried Halo 2 and liked it. Is Halo 1 a soft poly and Halo 3 just a typical 16 gauge synthetic gut? What strings do they compare to?

Ok so played 2 sets today of singles with the K7 Lime. Strung with cyclone mains and ogsm crosses. First impression is that it swings fast. Can’t find any info on the SW but I’d guess it’s in the 315-320 range. It has a really nice feel when you hit dead center but it’s unstable outside the sweetspot. I could tell almost immediately that it needs lead so that will be the next step. Probably 2g at 3 and 2 at 9. Also the Grip feels big and kinda like the head shape which I don’t mind. I did end up winning both sets pretty comfortably against a guy that beats me often so there’s that.

Yeah unstrung should be around 290 (all my K7s are 290) so 320 strung would be about right

I'm sorry for not reading the whole thread, but a quick question.

My racket of choice is a TC97 16/19 310 g 31.5 cm. (2016 model).

I love the power and spin, but it lacks a tad stability and feel.

Any recommendations on how to improve that? Would the V3 TC97 be an option?
Or maybe a 320 g 31 cm version?

Thank you!

Put lead at the sides.
Buying the V3 will change nothing for stability.
Buying a heavier option won't change stability either since the extra weight is in the handle

Has anyone hit the 2019 Dunlop 200 Tour 16x19, non-Tour 200 (98 16x19), as well as the "new" K7 Red (after the supplier change and higher RA)? If so, could you please share your thoughts on comparisons -- power, feel, control, string-bed responsiveness & predictability? Thanks! Contemplating my first Angell, and the K7 Red is at the top of my list. I've hit TC95 16x19 63 RA as well as TC100, thanks to @topspn, but I haven't gelled with the foam-filled feel.

The TC95 18x20 I've been hitting with is extremely comfortable. The Dunlops I had been playing with for a year seemed to be too harsh on my arm. Switched to the TC95 for my last 4 outings and my arm pain has already decreased by about 50%. Don't know that everyone would have this experience, but I am very pleased so far.

2-10 location lead would do better with that racket than 3-9.
 
By most people's responses about the Lime swinging too light I think lead at 12 would be the best bet especially if you really don't want to increase the static weight too much. That's what I plan to do anyhow once I get my hands on one.

My plan is to first add stability so that’s why the minimal lead at 3&9. If I need more plow I’ll add some at 10&2 or 12 as well.

I'm curious if anyone here uses Babolat POP sensor for tracking their game statistics? It's a great little tool on your wrist that wears like a wrist band and tracks strokes. I have been using Angells for multiple years now, switching between different lines. Have not gotten this high a score consecutively since switching to my V3 TC97 18x20 (topped the US list last night, final PIQ score just a bit under 9K). I averaged before in low 8K and slowly started moving upwards last few weeks. Has to also do with sparring partners I have noticed. Anyway, pretty happy since I can tell when I hit well and when I am sucking. Sticks are keeper for sure. If anyone uses the POP let me know and I'll add profile as a friend on there.

I have it laying around somewhere, tried it for short period of time, but I either forget to charge it of take it with me, so I gave up [emoji4]

I've also wondered. I tried wearing my Apple Watch on my hitting hand, and using Tennis Keeper, to log shot data, but it was unnatural to have a watch and extra weight there I couldn't take it and gave up. I love metrics, I'd have fun playing around with data.

I use this!
Not so accurate like the Sony Tensor,but it’s better because you can use on the wrist.
The Sony is attached to the frame and messes with balance A LOT(!).
Add me on the Pop Babolat Community:)!

Once you have tried PlaySight it’s level of sophistication is beyond what you can imagine. Just anything you can think of it will slice and dice. Only know of two places around Chicago that have it, Midtown and Northwestern

As @recsoares mentioned, it is pretty basic and not extremely accurate, but definitely good for giving an idea atleast. I think Sony one is better too. And best one offcourse is what @topspn above mentioned; Playsight. That one is a different playing field altogether for stats monitoring.

As for being worth it or not, I got mine on sale at TW for pretty cheap. I'm pretty satisfied with it.
