The DR 98 while a 16x19 however has a denser string pattern in the middle. It has 8 mains in the throat of the racquet compared to the six on the TC97. So how do you make the TC97 feel a bit denser and less launch angle. Choose a larger gauge string for one and if you want to lower the launch angle a bit try having the crosses a lb or two higher then your mainsHello there,
I got my hands on a used TC97 16*19 racket to try. It's the 320 gram, 63 stiffness version.
All this time I 've been using a DR98, and never thought to change the racket until now.
I love the way the TC97 feels, it's a solid racket with great feedback. The DR98 in comparison feels hollow, like a tin can. I can't hit a ball with the DR98 now, without missing the TC97.
However the big problem is my ball.
Every opponent of mine has testified that the DR98 produces a more penetrating ball, with more pace and weight, more difficult to return. The TC97 has this strange high launch angle that kinda reminds me of a pure aero, which my opponents find easier to return.
All in all if it wasn't for the feel, I would go back to the DR98 without a second thought, but now it's like I can't even play with it.
So, should I tinker with the TC97 16*19, should I buy a 18*20 version?
I am open to any suggestions really.
I was debating between a Head Gravity Tour, or Prince Textreme Tour 100p before I played with the TC97. Now all I care about is that solid sensation after hitting the ball.
Side note, I played with the Yonex 97HD and found it too demanding for my game.
Thanks a lot for any answers.
Also the demoing scene kinda sucks in Greece, none of the above frames is available for testing.
TLDR: Angel TC97 feels better, but Yonex DR98 plays better. What to do?
