I've had all 3 and currently own the TC100 and TC97. I liked the K7 (I think the second batch) but it wasn't stable enough for me. I couldn't find the right balance with lead tape so I ended up moving on. It was a great serving racquet from what I remember.Thanks! Can anyone else share their experience between the TC100 ra63, TC97 16x19, and the K7 red?
I used the TC100 63 RA for almost 2 years. I had mine customized from their original 300/325 to around 11.9 oz, 7 pts HL, SW ~337. It is/was a fantastic frame and I still have 2 in my bag and don't hesitate to use them at any time during a match. If my opponent lacks pace or the balls start getting flat from humidity, I will bring one of my TC100's out of my bag because its very stable and I can get lazy with it and hit a big ball
I've been using the TC97 16X19 310/315 for nearly 2 months now. Its a fantastic racquet. Doesn't hit as big a ball as the TC100 but is very precise and fast and allows me to really swing out on the ball. I have better serve pace with my TC100 but better spin with my TC97 and not a big loss of pace with it. Lower SW and more HL, I can really swing thru the hitting zone fast. I would say that my volleys are not quite as strong with the TC97 as the TC100 but I think that's more attributed to the weight and SW. I'm really enjoying the TC97, its been an easy switch. I also owned the TC95 16X19 and it was a fantastic racquet but I don't play enough to get used to the smaller head size. It was a great singles racquet for me but I'm 95% doubles. I could use the TC95 and TC100 pretty interchangeably in a match too.
Control. for me TC97 hands down. The TC100 provides good control too but the TC97 is better
Spin. The TC100 has a higher launch angle and I believe I get better spin with the 100 on deep shots. The TC97 is better for more controlled spin shots, think whipping short cross court angle shots or dipping balls at the net guys feet. I feel like I can hold the ball on my racquet better with the TC97. I also hit a lot of flat shots which favors the TC97 IMO.
Power. TC100 has more power but the TC97 still packs a good punch.
Comfort. they are both super comfy and I don't really notice a difference between the 2.
