Yes I know what you mean about getting the frame going very important to my game (RHS) I tend to favour frames around the 325-330sw. Enables me to hit out at every ball, I’ve struggled with too much SW in the past so I know exactly where I need a frame.I understand that as well as the benefit of using one/the same frame all the time. Thing is, and I’m sure we can agree on that, some frames are better for ones game than others. The fact I was using TC97 for a year or so doesn’t necessarily mean it was the right frame for me (at least as far as competitive tennis and results are concerned). I understand the need for good footwork and technique overall, even more so on high balls to my BH on clay. Thing is, I’m much more capable of taking them on the rise with TC100 which allows me to enjoy the game more, not even going to things like serve and put-away forehands. I do like the feel of box beams better but my performance and results speak clearly - I’m much harder to play against while swinging TC100/TC95.
Tour G330 is my golden ticket, it blends almost everything I need and like. Unfortunately, it’s rather throat heavy and I’m struggling to get it going approx after two hours of hitting. It will get better with practice and there’s a high chance it might become my ultimate weapon of choice going onwards if I manage to have a regular/frequent tennis schedule.
The new blades are worth a try was hitting them last week a club pro had a few, the 16x19s a definite improvement on the last decent blades back in 2015, the 18x20 felt pretty much the same as the 2015 to me tho. Bit of extra weight in the handle and they are ready to go
