Where's Gran? Hasn't been on any reviews as of late... is he on IR?
Granville is currently nursing a shoulder injury, but we will be back soon.
curse dem polys
Get him a nice Volkl or Pro Kennex with gut/poly when he comes back. Hope he gets better.
Have him do a few vids.... Maybe a vlog or something.
maybe he needs to go back to his heavier Wilson 6.1???
What racket was he using before the injury?
well i know he switched to the prestige from the wilson
but dont know if the lighter presitge caused it
As the Doctor said to Graville while doing a procedure on his shoulder: 'It's a scalpel'.
But it doesn't come stock with leather grip. Sorry about that. :shock:
BTW, I love leather grip too!
Get well soon!
He liked the Vcore Tour 89 alot. He should go to that one and use gut/poly.
ive had shoulder probelms before when going lighter... with a lighter racquet..u have to accelerate the racquet faster for equivalent pop and the increased accelration/contact chaos could have caused arm issues
i say chaos cuz usually with a lighter racquet the contact/impact is more violent
with a heavy racquet,,,the contact is more stable and controlled and less chaotic
Thanks for the notes here - Tiff just shared the thread with me. You all are awesome - I feel missed.
9 weeks post shoulder surgery (bone spur was grinding away at my shoulder tendon.) My tennis elbow may have been a result of my adjusting to shoulder pain. Elbow now fine and shoulder feeling much better.
Started hitting again three weeks ago - twice this week - starting to feel good again. Still no heat on my serves - that will take a while.
Has given me time to re-evaluate everything, racquet weight, balance, string - everything. Have tested all the new sticks and I've now narrowed it down to just one or two - no more 6.1's for me (in the near future anyway.) I am amazed at how sensitive I am to just one or one and a half ounces - really an eye opener. As soon as the playtest team asks me, I'm back in mix. Happy to share all my testing - the racquet I am favoring is one I've never thought I'd play with.........
Again - thanks for thinking of me.
oooo, a bit of a racquet tease. I like this.
Good to see you on your way back. You can borrow my Wilson T-2000... flexy and a m!@#! f#$%#! haha. Seriously... get well soon.
Hope its not the APD GT
Gran is the man
Granville- I've had two arthroscopic surgeries on my elbow and shoulder which ended my NCAA career. I played with the Wilson PS Classic 6.1 since about 1992 all the way throug college and up to 2000. That stick is a monster that will do hidden damage to your arm/shoulder that you won't feel for years later! I got those sticks with my player package and still have a couple left. How about you and get a huge bonfire going and put these 6.1's to rest! Haha
Anyway, after consulting with my team doctor and an orthopaedic specialist who happens to be a USTA doctor on site at the US Open during tournament time, he's treated more tour players (both current and retired) who used 6.1's for elbow/shoulder injuries, than any other racquet.
He recommends a Volkl/Boris Becker and Prince sticks to up and coming junior kids and others who he treats...
Stay away from a poly and stay away from a Prestige- look long and hard at a POG or a Power Bridge 10 or even a BB Delta Core London Tour. Played with them all, all great sticks. Never had a problem since dropping the 6.1.
Somebody who has felt your pain!
C'mooon, show us a bit more leg please! Don't leave us hanging with just a cankle.
And speedy convalescence!
Maybe give the low tensions a try.
POLL: what stick is Granville switching to?
Let's take a poll: What is Gran switching to:
1. Prince EXO Tour (pick your pattern)
2. Volkl C10 Pro
3. Yonex Vcore Series
4. POG OS
5. Donnay Pro One (pick your pattern)
My guess will be the Prince Exo Tour (18x20)... discuss
glad to read you're on the mend. let this old player know what stick/strings you settle on and if you want to split a reel of Technifibre Multifeel.
Come on Gran, you can't leave us hanging like this!
So the rumors of the Prestige S are true??
I think it's a Head Ti.S6!
hey. dont knock it...its a decent frame
you sir, are made of win...
yes and in a blizzard, you can always walk home confidently if you have a spare.
only if they are strung with a poly
He tipped us on the previous page that he was hitting something an ounce to an ounce and a half lighter. And I think that I did read that he was hitting the Prestige S. If not the Prestige S, my guess would be one of the following:
BioMax 200 (although not an ounce lighter)
Bio 300 Tour
F 3.0 Tour
Looks like we may never know.
Go for the Big Bubba - Get away from the scalpel and go for the sledgehammer!
(or maybe and actual Wilson Sledgehammer)
According to the playtesters profile he is using a Head YOUTEK IG Prestige S with leather grip.
