Got a TC100 RA70 in the mail. It weights 12.05 strung and feels noticeably lighter than my 63RA which weighs in around 11.7. I feel like I can feel the extra weight in the throat with the 63RA. I'm curious to hit with the 70RA to see if it translates to better RHS for me. I found the 63RA sluggish in doubles for me but I'm used to lower SWs than 338
Looking forward to read your experience comparing those two

They probably don't want you wasting the whole day customizing racquets:)
LOL true... I searched, and noticed this has been blocked before by some work places on and off... even the invincible @sureshs has had trouble..
B.T.W what's up with the lack of love for the tc105? would love to see how it fares up to prince warrior 107 and wilson blade 104

63RA frame inherently has higher swingweight and more importantly higher twistweight than 70RA frame that is the reason why 70 RA with same static weight and balance feels easier to swing than 63RA.

I'm with you. This has been discussed ad nauseaum. The issue that surprised me is how obvious the difference is picking up the frame despite a higher static weight for the 70 you don't feel that heaviness in the throat area.

I'll be hitting in a bit to see how it translates on the court.

I have tc97 almost same original specs as tc100, tc97 has 10 grams less weight but swingweight is 20 more, I had to add few layers of lead at 27" to add more swingweight to tc100, you can see in my signature everything is same except the swingweight and the twistweight.

Hit with the 70RA TC100 this afternoon. Totally different racket in action than the TC100 63RA. Much quicker through the air and felt crisper to me at the net. It doesn't hit as heavy of a ball but I can redirect and hit angles much more readily based on the quickness. The 70RA gets as much ball speed but not quite the heavy kick off the bounce that the 63 gets. I found the 70 to be a much better volleying frame. I played baseline games with a buddy who is a 5.0. It's strung with Klip Legend mains and a Volkl poly cross (came that way from the seller) and it was smooth as butter. I fet I was holding back some swinging because of the extra pop of the gut so I'll be curious to see the kick I get after the bounce stringing it with my tried and true Luxilon ALU.

Hi DANMAN,

How would you describe the difference in flex and comfort between those two?

Can't wait to get to the courts to try out myself. Racquet arrives today but I am out of town until Wednesday

Hi Flash,
There is not much difference in comfort between 63 RA and 70 RA, I just played for 3 hours alternating TC97 (63ra) and TC100 (70ra), 70 RA feels crisp, precise and more top spin when you hit with it and 63 RA feels heavier hitting and the ball does not deviate much when you hit with it.

Good to hear☺ Isn't the comparable RA of the TC97 66 though, so the difference is not quite as big, also considering the slightly smaller frame.

When you say does not deviate much, do you refer to better control of the shots?

just wanted to update that I am still doing well with the TC100 (70RA). Played another singles match yesterday with it and it did very well for me. Prince Warrior Response string seems to match with the frame very well. It adds some crispness and the power level is medium and it has lots of spin. I am serving well with it and it's nice to have such a thin beam with that much power. Not sure how they do it, but I dare anyone to find me another 20 mm beam racquet with as much power as the TC100. The added benefit of the thin beam is that it feels nice and thin in your hands when changing grips between shots. I rest my off hand on the throat in between shots and some thick beams can feel bulky and make grip transitions slower. I have also acclimated to the higher swingweight (335) and it's not an issue at all.

I find quite a bit of difference in flex but I feel the 70RA feels more like 65ish as we have said before. It's not as soft as my Blade 98S frames but they are RA 63 and the 18x16 makes hitting with them feel like hitting with a pillow. I didn't feel noticeable flex in the 70 but it felt nothing like a pure drive. It's got good feel without any noodle like properties. I'm a big fan. I'm still very comfortable with the 98S frames weighted to 12.1 and 7 pts headlight but the Angell has a chance to pull me over. It will depend on how it feels with full poly because I feel I had to hold back a bit with the gut poly hybrid. When I commited and hit out though the results were very good. I found the 63RA to have a higher launch angle probably due to longer dwell time. I actually found the 70 more comfortable but I'd say that was due to better timing with a swing weight I'm more accustomed to.

My mind is exploding with all this racket buying-and-trying, so I am considering a TC frame, but the question is which.

I am currently playing:
  • 2x Tour Textreme 95, customized
  • 2x Pure Strike Tour, customized
While I enjoy these, I'm def partial to the 16x19 pattern (launch angle and spin), and feel the Textreme lack a bit of pop. Customized, they have awesome plow and stability, but when I feel a bit sluggish, I feel the weight, esp. on the heaviest one (370g). I have been wondering about buying new TT95s in size 2, as over the last few months, I've come to terms to it works so much better for me (which I discovered with the PSTs).

Other fav frames have been the RF97A, 6.1 95 16x18 (last version), IG Prestige Pro. I've been through all the tweener frames (Pure Drive, PDR, Aero Pro, Pure Aero, AI100, AI98, DR98 +++) and I just don't play well with them: I can't tap into that advertised power and spin everyone talking about. After owning the latest Textreme Tours (100P, 100P, 95), one thought that has crossed my mind, is that this could be a result of weight in the throat area, something I see has been discussed here, reg. differences between the Angell frames.

I am open to both the TC95 and TC 97, as well as the TC 100.

So any suggs?

Thanks :)

Will be interesting to try it out. I have played lately with the most comfortable frames I can think of, Prince Tour 100, some Volkls, and most recently the TT100T customized.
I have had some forearm tenderness even with Blades, but my current theory is that it has been more due to higher SW/balance than actual stiffness.
One of the great things with Angell (I hope) is that doing this comparison I can figure out which impacts my arm more.

My most recent experience supports your findings. I was playing in a recent seniors tournament against guys way above my level and I was often late after some fast&heavy shots. This timing plus heavy balls were not too helpful

Control is good on both frames, it is the thud, the power and bulk in the throat of tc97 that is different from tc100.

Very hard to look past 63RA, 18x20 TC95. Powerful, spin friendly, comfortable and nimble. My usual set up (I'm glad to say...) used to be 360g+/approx 10pts HL strung but my Angell does it all and a lot of on top in 320g/315mm unstrung(under 340g strung). Plow is immense(weight difference in various weight/balance options is only due to handle weights) and at the same time, the frame is extremely maneuverable all over the court. I have no experience w/ TC97 and TC100 but I can finally stop looking for/trying new frames because of the 95.

How would you compare it to, f.inst., the 6.1 95 16x18 (or 18x20, last version)?
And how does the 63RA compare to 70RA (yes, I know I should read the whole thread, but gimme a break ... ;-) )

Interested in a 16x19 pattern, though.

Never played with the 6.1 (apart from the BLX Tour) and I only have 70RA in TC90 so hard for me to make a comparison. It's very hard to approximate it to any racquet I've previously owned because neither of them has the precision/plow/maneuverability/feel/power/comfort/thin beam combo that the (18x20, RA63) TC95 does. Closest thing would be Fischer Vacuum Pro Mid of the racquets I've played but I guess that's not very helpful at the moment...

How does the TC97 compare with something like the Volk PB10 Mid? I like the feel of the Volk, but find the head size is a tad too small for me these days (I'm getting on a bit and mostly play dubs) and would like something a little more forgiving (easier sweetspot).

I'm a little worried about the head flex on the TC97 that people talk about here (hope its not like the Volk C10 Pro, which flexed at the tip and therefore 'noodly').

I very much enjoyed the Tex 95 - and would suggest the TC97 as an able substitute for it, one with more inherent power and responsiveness.

I played the PB10 Mid and loved it. I now have the TC97 and would see it as a natural successor for anyone making the move to a larger head size from the PB10 Mid. It has some flex for sure, but not more than the PB10 Mid, and firmer in the tip than the C10 Pro.

Thanks. That would def make my life easier when it comes to RA, since there's only one choice as far as I've gathered?
I'm not really sure if the lack of pop on the Tex 95 is mostly string pattern or frame softness or ... Have you tried the 6.1 95 (or RF97A) in comparison?
Or the TC 95?

The TC-100 70 can serve flat out bombs. I'm surprised the SW is so high. I measured it with the RDC at the PGA store and it was like 322 or 323, with Solinco TB 17. Could there really be that much difference in our strings?

id say the tc95 16x19 is a good comparison to the 6.1 96 16x18. similar power on serves but more maneuverable and more control on groundstrokes... one of my hitting partners has switched back to his 6.1 16x18 because he needs the stability to hang with what my tc95 is dishing out... he considers the tc 95 to be one of the nicest frames hes ever hit with. Like the 6.1 16x18 you have a lot of power on tap that takes a bit of experience to apply effectively... but the tc95 is plusher and has more control.

Hi Guys,
I'm pretty sure I am going to try another Angell just not sure where to aim my efforts. Here are the details. I'm 46, been playing for 6 years. Solid 4.0. I play singles and doubles. Best shots are my serve and forehand. I hit with a lot of topspin but I find as a play higher players, I have to count less on pushing opponents back with big topspin strokes and use more variety. I started with a Pure Drive and went to an APD and have tried a million racquets. The biggest change in a racquet came with the Wilson PS-97. It has more feel, touch and stability than my Babolats, even when the Bab's are leaded up. At times though, I find the PS-97 a little clunkly, especially when trying to whip a buggy-whip (ish) forehand into the corner. I have a very non-linear game...it's just who I am.

I tried a TC-100 70. And liked it overall but felt it lacked the touch and precision I found with the PS-97. The flex and dwell was a bit too much for me. Part of that, I'm finding is due to the longer mains on all 100's.

So, am I a TC-97 guy or a TC-95 (70) guy....or??

I don't know, I can measure it again, but it was 325 with the syngut that was in it when I bought it from you and after changing it to 16g Warrior Response, it went up to 335. I don't think your got an accurate reading with TB17, since that string it definitely heavier than the syngut. I don't mind it though...I am fine with whatever swingweight it is.

If launch angle and spin are crucial, don't go for the TC97 and TC100.
Go for the TC95.
I own a TC95 63RA 16x19, previously liked dense 16x19 racquets like yourself and have used a textreme 95. Took me 4 months to get used to it after some tweaks with lead and strings. Pain in the behind. However, the extra power and forgiveness is great. No regrets when it comes to those aspects.

The TC95 is definitely and feels more open and will give you a higher launch angle than your textreme 95 despite both being 16x19 patterns.
You could adjust to it or get the TC95 18x20 for the denser string bed to tame the launch angle to achieve closer trajectories to your textreme.
Theres a TC97 18x20 option too...but I'm not knowledgeable enough to comment on that one.

I'm sure you even need a bigger racquet head than a 95 hence the pure strikes and textreme 95s. Here's something persuading: The TC95 feels more forgiving than both and plays bigger than its advertised 95sq headsize. Still maintains its precision too.

TL;DR: TC95 16x19 launch angle will be higher than you think moving from your textreme, however you get more forgiveness and pop. The TC97 16x19 and TC100 shouldn't even be on your list of options UNLESS you want a higher launch angle than you have at the moment.

i made the switch from the even more demanding x feel pro 95 to the tc95 and though it did take similar effort... it was completely worth it as well...court boss stick.

What tensions are you using with that Prince Response string? My club just got some and I want to put it in my Angell racquet.

Precisely. The 97 is the obvious choice here. See also comments from @smirker above in this thread. He was a PS97 player and moved to the TC97 - the latter being an improvement in all areas from what i can gather.

Yes, definitely prefer the feel of the TC97 over the PS97. The Wilson was stiff with not much feel imo. The Angell is a different beast entirely. More dwell time = better results for me.

I demoed the PS97 and liked it but felt it lacked some plow thru. Do you feel the TC97 has better plow thru and pop and what unstrung specs did you order for the TC97?

I am going to demo the TC100 Tour but may also demo the TC97 Tour (which is 320 g unstrung).

@smirker will answer for himself but for me the TC97 has more plow through, assisted by a higher swingweight. That will be the case irrespective of which TC97 you pick as the SW is effectively the same in each case. The specs i have are 320g static weight, 315mm balance.
