By the way, just so you know, the blade 16x19 is also very suitable for a flatter game at tension around 52. This is exactly one of my friends game and he was looking a long time until he got the blade and plays it with revolution @52lbs and works great for his game
I also have a friend who hits so flat that you can read the label on the ball when it's coming across the net. He was a long-time Pro Staff 95 user and now hits the 2015 Blade 16x19. Definitely a tight 16x19 in the Blades. If I demo, I'll likely hit both string patterns, but yes, you're dead on.

if you prefer the firmer, crisper feel that the TF40 offers, the 2015 Blade 18/20 would be up your alley. It performs pretty similar to the v7 18/20 Blade with more direct feedback similar to the TF40. Just need to be careful when it comes to Wilson QC cuz SW could vary significantly which could affect the way it plays quite a bit.
I actually prefer a more muted frame, but it's interesting you'd mention the 2015 Blade 18x20. I demoed both Blades when the 2015s came out, and the 18x20 demo blew me away ... enough to buy a pair. My demo was only 2 pts. hl and had a high swing weight (didn't measure it but could tell it was over specs). For some inexplicable reason, I requested a heavier static weight, more head light balance, and less swing weight when I ordered my frames. They were very different, and I couldn't replicate the magic of the demo frame through mods. I got frustrated and gave up on them, regrettably. One of the better demos I've hit.

You get a 2015 blade 18/20 with a SW that has some room to customize and it’s a pretty special stick. :)

Just had a hit with the ASL2 tonight. Holly **** this racquet deserves so much hype. It’s so comfortable without the gimmick flex tech. I even strung it with rpm blast at 58 lbs. The racquet swings fast and is not sluggish like the Blade 98. I’ve been hitting with the Blade 18x20 and TF40 and going to the ASL2’s Open pattern didn’t compromise control. But I got more access to spin and better on defensive shots. In fact, I find the control better than the Blade because the stringbed is more predictable. Volleys were fantastic and it slices thru the air quick making those short angle volleys deadly. I did put some lead at 3&9 as I find it was still a bit too light and the sweetspot a bit small. This racquet can hit a heavy ball whether it’s flat or spin you can do it all. Serves were fantastic as well as I was able place it anywhere on the court. I’ve mentioned it already, but the feel is special. It’s just so comfortable and I have golfers elbow. There’s really nothing like it out there. This racquet doesn’t really have a glaring weakness. It’s incredible how Paul is able to make a powerful racquet without compromising control. As much as I enjoy the TF40, it’s still too firm for my sensitive elbow. It also doesn’t hit as heavy of a ball as the ASL2. I know I’m in the honeymoon stage, but I might just switch to this permanently because it’s so good for my arm. I’ve official joined the Angell hype train.

IME the Ultra Tour with a little bit of lead turns it into a more forgiving version of the IGYT Prestige MP. Lead is distributed at various places throughout the hoop depending on Wilson QC.

1.5-2g at 12
1-1.5g from 9-11ish
1-1.5g from 1ish-3
Leather grip + putty inside the trapdoor or lead inside the trapdoor. mine are ~11.7oz with 32cm balance pt. Sweet spot is more generous than the stock IGYT Prestige MP with slightly better feel. Retains Prestige control level, a little more power with slightly better maneuverability.
i remembered this one when it came out and was quite interested in it... but i was still in love with Angell at the time, so didnt pay too much attention. lol

Just checked the spec again and indeed it is a decent platform racquet.... tempting.... maybe it'd worth while to make it my Blade 98 spec-like wise.... the new Ultra range is supposed to arrive around March time, so maybe this will be a good pick up during the "clearance sale"... :-D

the 16x19 blade (v7) easily the pick of the new blades, may well carry one of these. the 2015 blades I spent a lot of time with & the 16x19 was easily the worst of the bunch! The 18x20’s I found strange didn’t like the balance & seemed a game to get them balanced right & needed stringing at very low tension for me. I actually enjoyed the 98S the most, was a fun underrated frame.

Anyone to compare ASL2 with Yonex Tour G330? Or with 18x20 63RA TC95? The G330 would take some beating on stability & Plow.

Thx.
wow there’s 3different string patterns between them & I guess comparisons would be a bit like chalk & cheese even after leading up the ASL2.

Yeah, I know. I guess the question is more about plow, authority, maneuverability, X factor perhaps...room for customization, how much lead does ASL2 need to be a shotmakers weapon and how does it play after that (do you lose a lot of RHS etc.). Long shot (particularly with Tour G330 comparison...).

With TC95 you get upper hand almost by default in most rallies since it hits such a big rally ball plus there still is that red zone when you go all out (same goes for serves) plus decent touch and feel. Tour G330 has all of that but it drains you (well...me) much quicker, I like its feel and touch a lot better than TC95 63RA. So I was wondering where the newest Angell engineering is going...

Case in point - I'm slower on return and reaction shots with Tour G330 compared to my leaded up Dunlop Bio300T. It's the either SW since static weights are pretty much the same, or - more probably - polarization. Dunlop is extremely polarized, Tour G has a lot of mass around the balance point. The difference is quite minimal but makes enough difference between a good return and hitting the top of the tape. Two matches in two days against the same guy who played pretty much the same: 6-1, 6-2 with the Dunlop (significantly more points won on return, much more assured on serve), 7-6, 6-4 with Tour G (serving bigger - bit more free points perhaps but also more double faults, aggressive returns not working that much).

...

So maybe the right question would be if I could re-create my Dunlop setup with ASL2...

I just have one 3 inch strip of lead on each side at 9&3 and two overgrips and the racquet came in at around 12 oz. I haven't even messed with leather grip yet. It's super stable but still swings really fast. Headshape is more oval like volkl so it comes around quicker for me vs rounder headshape.

Oh. My. God. Hit with my TC95, 320g, 310mm, RA70, 16x19 (with lead at 3' and 9') in drills for the first time yesterday. I had absolutely no idea what I was missing in terms of "feel" and control versus my 6.1 95S.
All in all, this actually felt VERY similar to a slightly lighter RF97 with better feel. Really, really digging this and ready to use this puppy for a long time coming.
I have been playing with an RF97A for about a year. Fairway leather grip, ng hybrid strings, OG, dampener. It's up there in weight.

I have my moments of absolute brilliance with this setup and have really improved my footwork over the last year using it. But it's still a handful and I find myself over hitting and losing control of my launch angle frequently. Volleys are amazing, and it hits a heavy, deep penetrating ball that when I actually play consistent with - it puts my opponents in tough defensive positions. By the 3rd set, sometimes I start really losing control.

Also played with a leather gripped, leaded 3/9 K7 lime that was great - but I still didn't get the penetrating shots I could generate with the RF. Was a little too flexy for my taste, but overall i had moments of brilliance with it as well with more laser precision.

I'm looking for something that hits a heavy ball but has a bit more feel/ease of use and control than the RF97A I've been using. The K7 lime was a little underpowered for me, and the RF is just too much sometimes. RF I can't feel what's going on when I need delicate shots - it's like playing with a brick. I've tried the V7 blade and it just felt rubbery and gimmicky no offense to anyone. Also did not like the yonex HD, had a weird non forgiving stiffness about it.

Closely looking at the V3 TC97 or TC95. Probably the 63 RA 16x19 versions....although the TC97 18x20 is also in the mix. Can anyone else comment on my situation where I may want to start with my next angell frame? I'm just finding that I can't control the ball consistently with the RF anymore.

The RF97A is one of the most overrated racquets of all time and I'm saying this as someone who previously used as my main stick for a good year. The intial power and stability is addictive. It really serves and vollley well, but that's where it sorta ends. Control isn't great and it's one of the stiffest racquets I've ever played with. After awhile, I was only able to play with it once a week at most because my arm and shoulder couldn't handle it anymore. As I've gotten older and riddled with nagging injuries, comfort became my priority if I want longevity. The RF97A is just an awful feeling racquet. There are so many options out there nowadays that do focus on comfort and flex but doesn't compromise on power. There's no need to be swinging a racquet this heavy and uncomfortable at a recreational level.

Glad you enjoyed it! Sorry meant to reply to your question earlier but it looks like you’ve gotten to answer it for yourself. I actually think Paul’s “power racquet” description might not have done him any favors, as I think the majority of players who are even considering his sticks are relatively advanced and equate “power racquet” with “noob stick” (even though the TC 95 hits like a truck lol). I have tried the K7 Red which I did enjoy but I didn’t get the same oomph as I did with the ASL2 and I found the ASL2 slightly more nimble.

if I was you I’d buy the 2015 pro staff 315g unstrung. It was a better frame than the RF version, better feel & without the heft but still pretty powerful (more similar than the K7 lime or any of the Angell line imo)

I agree that the description of the ASL2 as a "power" frame is a bit misleading. It does have a surprising amount of pop for a stick of that RA & beam width but it's not like it is difficult to tame like a PD or PA type frame. I was using a V7 Blade and just couldn't get on with the balance. Tried to mod it but couldn't get to where I wanted it without turning it into a tank. Mine were also on the high side of SW which also was challenging. I spoke to Paul several times about what my goals were. Ended up with 2 ASL2's. I find I can rip the ball, finesse shots and play with excellent touch. Are they as supremely stable as the Blade? No. Are they as powerful as a PD? No. But they fit my game extremely well and are very comfortable with the feel and touch I had been looking for. I've had no problem keeping up with my 5.0 hitting partners in singles and doubles with them.

FYI, only mod I made was I replaced the stock syn grip with the Angell Hybrid grip. It added just a few grams to the handle and gave me better bevel feel. I'm sure I could add some weight to the hoop to improve stability but I honestly just don't want to go down that rabbit hole yet. I played with the first gen Tec 315 LTD for several years. IMO the ASL2 is a better version of that frame: excellent feel and touch but with better power to keep from getting pushed around the court and doesn't require the amount of modding it took to make the 315 a weapon at my level. ASL2 has a much bigger backbone while still being very control/feel oriented

I can also vouch for the ASL2. Really an underappreciated frame, perhaps due to the "power racket" description on the website. I have made the ASL2 my main frame, transitioning from V3 TC95 16x19, largely because of its great versatility.

I agree that very few modifications are necessary. I demoed the VCore Pro HD and loved the feel/balance, so I recreated the specs with my ASL2. Unstrung ASL2 specs were 310g/315mm/288 SW. After modifications, I have it at 340g/319mm/~325 SW. Feels/swings great.

I think Wilson's QC has improved with the v7 blade, but yes, the 2015 Blade has one of the worst QC in the history of racquet production.
Well, they made it at least an issue because they mention the following with the product features:
"Reduced spec variance (+/- 5.5 g) for added consistency from frame to frame"

Check:

Usually it is a +/- 7 g variance.

I once came across two Wilson K Blades a while back that were 12 grams apart but as per their rep, within Wilson tolerance (one was 5g or 6g under and the other 5g or 6g over). It was hilarious. They have atrocious QC. I agree that +/- 5.5g is nothing to boast about, really.

So my three TC100s have the A grip shape which i do like on serve but having a hard time acclimating to still on groundstrokes. It is probably a good fit for someone who hits eastern. I tend to encroach on semi western and adjust more eastern when trying to go more flat. It bothers me moving into semi western were its not as easy or seamless as the B shape. I also have more trouble getting into a 1 handed backhand grip. I may have to change grip shape

After using Head racquets for a while, I realized their grip shape kinda sucks. The B pallets I find to be the most natural one.

I think if you’re someone who likes to have his grip stable on eastern, it might be good. However if you want versatility changing your grip, it doesn’t seem to be optimum.

For me I have one TC100 that's a B shape (my first forray into Angell), and the ones I'm currenlty using are C shape which feels the most like my Prince frames. I know once you get used to a "shape" it's sometimes hard to change.

Anyone every change the butt cap to a different shape? I;m considering playing around with maybe adding a Wilson butt cap to one of my frames just to see.

I'm pretty sure the buttcap swap won't change the pallet shape. Might add more or less flair though

Any of you who have swapped pallets before, what double sided tape did you use to secure new pallet? And if anyone has any B3 pallets they don’t need please let me know.

And how do you stable back the end cap or do use glue for the end cap?

Hi
I have changed pallets many times.
I am using cheap , thin double sided carpettape and a clean hairpin.
For the buttcap I am using 4 stapels that are 7-8 mm and a normal springpowered stapler. Put the stables through the thinnest of the buttcap..
I have never had a Angell/Vantage buttcap/pallet to fall off..

I didn't use any new double sided tape except the sticky mesh that was already on the frame. I secured them to the frame with a staple gun, two staples on each of the large sides.

Buttcap was also secured with two staples. I tried an epoxy once but it actually came undone and ended up damaging the pallets themselves.

Never had an issue with my Vantages using that method.

I've used generic and 3M double sided tape and both worked fine. I cleaned the pin prior, then line it with the double sided tape, and also inside the the new pallet. Normal stapling for the butt cap into the new grommet using existing holes, or matching where they would be on a new cap.

I recently just did a head pallet swap on the new 360 Radical to the older shape pallet, and a Head pallet on a Weed racquet to bring the size down. It's kind of fun haha

I assume you wrapped the tap around the pin

The staple gun I bought to do the pallet swap wasn't anything particularly fancy. I don't think it was the cheapest one out there, but I also remember not spending very much on it. Just put some even pressure on it while you drive in the staples and it'll be fine.

Actually I just looked again and it was the yellow Bostitch staple gun that I got. They're about 20 bucks everywhere

Very curious how the process goes for you, in the past when stapling buttcaps and pallets with a hand tacker I haven't had much success. I'm assuming since the Angell pallets are foam it's easier for the staples to penetrate the hairpin?

that's basically what we have here. I usually have to tap the staples all the way in with a soft mallet or with a small hammer as long as they go in straight. i should taken pics the last time i did it. good luck!
