Definitely this one. The blacked out frame will never become boring and looks great with whatever colour overgrip you put on it.
I'd have to go with the blacked out Volkl PB 10 Mid; I really like the black/yellow paint job, but the all black is just too good.
I forced myself to get used to its weight and balance. I actually slowed my swing down and just met the ball... to get the timing down, then slowly put more speed and force behind the shots... over about two weeks period. I was really dialed in after that.
After the first hit, though, I almost sold it because I couldn't get used to its feel coming from the IGPMP. The PST needs some time to get used to its unique feel and weight/balance.
Excellent Choice. I was thinking about it....and I have been through many generations of rackets....some beautiful and some ugly. I have liked plain ones (prince graphite, Yamaha Secrets), and gaudy ones (orignal pro 1) since the early days, and that continues to be true today...
When trying to think of one that really stands out, the RD7 sprang to mind, even though I never played with one (for more than an hour - thought about switching at one point - came close). The looks surprised me though...I was expecting gaudy, cheesy, yellow and red flames like some 70's dragster....but instead it was subtle with flare. Rich, dark, black with the colors blending in beautifully. Great racquet.
Even though I have an affinity for black racquets (e.g. Blade 93) this is one of my all time favorites.
Seriously, no one has mentioned these yet?
So true. Another gorgeous racquet. Played with this one and the Max 200G. Dunlop makes some beautiful sticks.
Anything Maria Sharapova is using
Prince Textreme Tour 95 or Wilson PS90
no one's mentioned the HEAD EDGEWOOD yet??
for modern frames I can't go past Fed's ncode, that paint job is synonymous with greatness.
Definitely the best racquet I've seen when it was announced a few years back. It's not vapourware though. You can buy it now for $750 here: http://www.lacoste.com/us/lacoste-sport/men/tennis/lt12-racket/LABLT001.html
Wilson Burn FST 95 - is a very good looking racket..
