Just curious. What's best among the new stuff?
Pro Kennex Qtour
Babolat Pure Drive Roddick
I like the Wilson ProStaff 95. It is now my main battle frame.
Mantis 315 Tour, Head IGYT Mid.
Head Youtek Extreme Pro 2.0 - it is replacing my 2012 Wilson Six One 95s
Prostaff six one 90 blx
Ksix one tour
Give Volkl Power Bridge 10 a try. It's strongly recommended by Chris Edwards.
Loving my Boris Becker London Tour Mids. Coming from the Dunlop 100 and 200 series frames, they are a nice mid-point. Much more forgiving than the 100. More control than the 200. Worth every penny of the $79 a piece I paid for them.
I may actually stick with a racquet for the next several years. Only concern - grommets.
ah yeah son
Recently tried and switched to Yonex V-Core Tour 89
X Force Pro. Very impressed with its solidness, softish feel, control, touch and build quality.
IG Prestige Mid Plus
you cant go wrong with it..
I have hit the Wilson Blade 98 as well. I like it too..
Haven't played this frame, but I am in love with the XForce. Very low powered players frame but forgiving with a good sweetspot. Great build quality as RossK mentioned and zero tolerance is awesome if you want more than one.
Agree with everything mentioned. My 2nd one is arriving today! First time ordering 2 rackets separately and not worry about the difference in specs.
IG rad pro, great stick if you get a good one from Head QC.
Trying it now. So far great
It has taken me a while to really dial in my Prestige IG Mid Plus because it is flexier than the previous version but it is a monster now.
I had it all the way up to 13 oz and 10pts headlight with toughgut crosses and Silverstring mains but I just wasnt getting the sting on my second serves and needed more swingweight. Now it's a tad lighter 12.7 oz and 8.5 pts headlight now and it is such a beast. Ive been S&V a lot and rushing the net every chance I get... because I like that and the groundstrokes are so punishing I am forced to come in for putaways by the short balls that come back at me. Change of direction is scary good too, reminds me of the old Max 200G days.
On serves both flat and topspin I can feel it flexing as it carves into the felt of the ball. It just pancakes the poor little fuzzy things and I took out my one of my tougher hitting partners... a 4.5 frequent USTA tourney player with it 6-4. If the sun hadn't been so tough on one side of the court it would have been 6-2 too. If you have the strength for this setup (Im an athletic 220 and 6 ft 2.5in and grew up playing with 14 oz rackets so this is no problem) perhaps try this setup.
