Details as follows:
ASL 3
MADE FOR POWER

Constructed from High Modulus Carbon Fibre and strategically placed Siloxane layers the ASL3 is our most powerful player orientated frame.

Description
Brand new for 2019, the Angell ASL line is made for power.

In every shot, a player needs to reverse the momentum of the ball with accurate timing and swing speed. Targeted sections of the ASL frame are constructed with a layer of active Siloxane to dramatically reduce impact stress and incoming ball speed. This immediate reduction in ball speed means less power is absorbed from the players swing and more pace is loaded onto the outgoing shot. Full foam core inside the frame provides solidity whilst the high modulus carbon delivers the abundance of power that all Angell frames are renowned for.

I don't know, not my jam. Specs are not something I'd be interested in. PJ looks meh as well. It comes off as a tweener basically it seems with 'power' in mind.
To me the PJ is reminiscent of the old Vantage Bastcore frames. Awful PJ, but the BC20 was possibly still to this day the best bat Paul Angell has produced (in my opinion).

Good to know. I never used that one. What were the specs for BC20?

Angell with good news for 2019. But I still dream of a frame equal to tc95 with the material used in the K7 series.

Same mold as the 95 he produces these days, same grommets and pallets etc.

49RA!!

This was due to the Bastcore construction. The didn't flex in the traditional way, they kind of recoiled, thus giving huge dwell time and a lot of power. They were special, rare as rocking horse sh#t these days.

I had a pair, sold them last year, like you do....

With foam filling of TC95 and K7 construction aramid fibres, i think that would be one muted frame!

I think the PJ looks good, not sure how blue and silver are particularly feminine colours but to each their own I guess!

Not the sort of specs I'd gravitate to, but seems like a good alternative for something like a beast, or a more arm friendly PD. Would definitely be intrigued to have a hit with it at any rate.

Here my 2 cents about Angell tc 105 tour. Seems not a popular choice, but i like OS players rackets as blade 104, and this fits perfect here.
I prefer 23m beam over thinner options, it s just between a players racket and tweener. It has a high stiffness but don t hurt my arm, foam swems to work, delivers a lot of easy power, generous sweetspot, consistent ball.So far very happy with, only negative aspects is less touch and worst tension mantainance as a 98 o 100 sq.
My best string combination is kirschbaum evolution mains, prince sg crosses.
Anyone uses this frame here?
I play 50/50 singles/doubles, allways red clay courr, this frame works good for both options.
I just wanted to reply to your post as I als5o purchased the TC105 about 3 years ago due to tennis elbow from Head Instinct (which Ioved). TC105 healed my elbow after 3 months due to foam design. The only think I hate about it is the 105 head and like you said this was the only Angell that had a 23mm beam width. All the others are thin which I can't play with. I'm finally looking to switch back to a 100 size frame and have my eye on the new Tecnifiber TFight XTC which is 23.5 MM straight beam.

The ASL has a 21mm beam width in the hoop and a slight taper to 23mm at the top of the handle.

I'm curious as to which aspects the ASL3 differs from TC100 besides obviously the different mold. Where does this new offering fit in for target audience? If I am not mistaken, can you not get similar weight and balance options in TC100 line as well? That said, I will still be keen to test the baby out even though specs aren't really that enticing for me.

What's the SW of the TC100? Think the other TCs usually come in around 330?

ASL should be around 315 strung, so there's a fairly big difference.

I'd love to try all the Angell range, shame they don't demo!

I recently got aware of Angell racket while shopping for a new racket, currently looking for Wilson clash or pure drive, I have some questions in regards to Angell rackets:

1.) Are all Angell rackets feedbacks when hitting are the same regardless of RA, headsize? What I mean is since it's foam filled, I guess it has a general "Angell" feed/feedback, like you know it's babolat because it has the same feeling/feedback on most racket?

2.) Played regularly using Babolat from Aero Pro Drive GT 2009, and currently using Pure Aero Tour 2016, so I'm checkin the V3 TC100 70RA 300g 6HL, how do this racket differ in feel and feedback compared to the 2 racket mentioned? Both Babolat owned feels solid on contact but not much feedback, feels like you hit something and you know you hit hard and solid but unsure if you swat a fly, mosquito or pigeon, you only know you hit hard and it's flying away. I need something that solid but a good feedback, GT 2009 is stiff and when I demoed Pure Aero 2016 and PAT, I chose PAT because it's softer and more stable than regular Pure Aero.

3.) How open is the string of V3 TC100? I kinda dislike the 2016 open string of Pure Aero/PAT since it's very open and hard to hit flat when I need to.

I'm shopping for Angell equivalent of Pure Aero, but need a softer and more arm friendly that's why I came across of Angell brand. Not sure if I'm the only one or this is an early sign of TE, sometimes when I didn't move my arm like was stuck on position like sleeping and elbow bent, you are wary to straighten it up because something feels jarring on it, and when you straight it up you may hear some click sometimes but thankfully no pain but still it's worrisome. What I hate when hitting are the 1st 3 hit on warmup, usually there's a stinging sensation or a little pain on elbow on ball impact then it will gone after and play normally then goes full circle when my arm is not active.

Thanks

Well, the TC100 comes in two variations. The 70 RA version TC100 can be purchased with very similar specs and swing weight. My V2 70RA once strung came out to 65 RA.

And even if we leave 70RA version alone, I also know of couple of 63RA with strung swingweight of 316- 318 measured by owners. One of them I think was my friend @DJ- who reported his close to 318 strung (let me know if I'm mistaken DJ and if it was someone else). I know for sure that @Faris reported his at 316 strung. There were a lot of folk here who requested lower swingweight TC100 since it is a very popular stick and lower swing weight is offcourse easier to use.

And yes, strung weight for ASL3 will be around 315. See my post here:

Good memory @haqq777 yes mine was 316 strung. Measured using Alpha Accu Swing2. Except for 4g static weight difference (mine was 299g unstrung) same specs as the new ASL3 stock actually. Will try to dig out pictures since its been a year or so now.

My daughter has a TC100 that is close to 315 strung swing weight as well. Our club pro shop measured it on babolat rdc machine.

So the ASL3 is same mould as TC100 but the construction is different. I’d expect the feel to be closer to the 70RA and string pattern the same
