First, keep in mind you’re comparing a 97 to a 100 so there will be some inherent mobility/forgiveness compromise. TC100 is a terrific racquet with excellent power and good feel. The one thing that anyone has to be critical of is they’d like more control. The ASL2 is not what I think of as a control racquet. The smaller head size is a bit more precise but it was engineered for a bit more response and it does give you that. It is a different design beam but you can feel the heritage of the TC line. It is an explosive frame once you start hitting with intent to overpower and does a better job in versatility of shots of flat or loopy heavy spin. The TC100s response is more uniform with a bit higher launch angle. ASL2 feel is more responsive and it can go to a different gearLooking for some advice, if anyone can help...Planning to buy an Angell, and have narrowed it down to two possibles:
TC100 310g 70 RA 9HL
ASL2 310g 62 RA 9HL
Obviously the specs seem pretty similar, given that the 70RA drops when racket gets assembled...so my question is, will there be any meaningful difference between the two in how they play, and if so, what? Or can I just go for the better looking racket?
