NoBadMojo and others. Did any one play with both racquets and if so any opinions?
I know there is a weight difference but I am interested in a comparaison of all other aspects like power, volleys, slice and so fourth.
Thanks

lcw,

I felt that the t10mp v-engine wins out in every category except, perhaps, maneuverability. The Tour9 v-engine just felt less solid and not quite as comfortable. Power was good and spin generation was easy but at net and on blocked returns I seemed to get more feel, more stability and more control out of the t10mp v-engine.

Now, I only played the 18x20 version, so the 16x19 could be quite a bit different.

lcw I think Andrew has a good grasp of these frames. I hit w. the 16x19, not the 18x20. these frames play like their specs suggest they might, but I was expecting the VE9 might have a bit more juice to it. I would suggest this frame to someone who wants something firm playing but not so powerful and more control oriented. The Ve10MP can be setup to play in a number of different ways based on string and tension..it's the better choice if the swingweight is suitable to you.

Played with both, almost bought both but settled on the T10Gen2. The 9 has more power but still controllable. And the big difference is weight, the 9 being lighter and easier to swing. I thought they were both average as volley sticks. The 9 served with more pop. I had a nice controlled backhand slice with the 9 despite its lighter weight and mass. They are very different, try to hit them both.
