Mains: Lux TiMO 17 @ 62lbs
Crosses: Gosen OG Sheep Micro @ 60lbs
4 1/2 grip w/ Wilson White Overgrip (even though my hands are huge)
Think I might add some more lead to the stick, I'm still 17, but im 6'5 200 lbs and I can rep out my body weight on bench. Always wanted to try a prestige with some lead, but never got a chance too....my n6.1 can hold me back from swinging out sometimes...
Holy crap, do you play football or something? btw, if you want a tad less power try stringing the crosses 3-4lb higher. i use a similar string setup in my n6-1s
2 aeropro drive
2 fp instinct team
1 lm radical
BAG:Aero Pro 12x
shoes: a3 prevail
string:conquest and reaction
grip: wilson pro overgrip
I played football, baseball, basketball all my life, but now I just play tennis for the high school...
Ok, thanks for the advice! For how much power I can hit with, I thought the n6.1 might be too much, thats part of the reason I wanted a prestige (and marat is my idol), but I think I should just try to tinker around with string setups. Guess we will have to see...
i used to think that about the n6-1, but its all about the footwork and not overswinging. control's just fine when my game's clicking.
control is great, but alot of the time on my groundies, I can't hit them as hard as I can with other sticks, because of how much power the n6.1 has, but then again I'm probably learning something from using the stick anyways....
try adding a bit of lead at the top of the handle.
Just towards the top of the end of the handle and then just put my overgrip over the tape? How much do you think? Where else should I add lead to the n6.1 95? I want to add weight so its about 12.8 oz, but I dont want that to mean even more power....
What do you guys suggest?
Well not a junior, but I hope you don´t mind
Rackets:4 x Yonex RDS 001 98´
Bag: Yonex Thermo-9 ProBagSeries
String: Head Ultra Tour 17 / Head RipControl
Shoes: Yonex SHT-305
ask dave333 about lead
How big is the Yonex 9 pack?
alright, if that doesnt work out I think i might just demo the FP/LM Prestige Mid, and the technifibre 325/335
i dont play well with anything from Head because of their grip shape. Technifibre grips are the same as Heads. just a heads up if you're switching from wilson.
yeah I used to play with a Flexpoint Radical, its all good for me...
- Wilson nCode Sixone Team
- Wilson nCode Sixone Tour
- Dunlop Volleys
- Adidas Tirand
- Nike Vapour III
It´s quite big. it looks small when you get it, but when it has been stretched by putting rackets, clothing, shoes etc in it, it´s really nice.
It´s a really nice bag, so don´t hesitate bying it
Well I have 2 packs of unique lead tape, 5 wilson pro overgrips left, and one m-fil 300.
pathetic eh? I'll be getting a new m-fil soon tho.

Heres a little story =]
Soo, on christmas i got a wilson tour 5 6 pack. I was very happy and everything was just fine. I took my rackets out of my old bag and put them into the new bag. The very next day, i had a tournament. I won my first match, and as i was zippering the bag, the zippers just became defective. Later that day i had another match, which i lost. The next day my dad called wilson and told them my situation. Wilson apoligized for it and just sent me a free Wilson tour 5 super 6 pack.
Hopefully that bag does not have a bad zipper
6 ncode six-one 95s, 2 k factor six-one 95 (switching to k factor)
babolat hurricane tour 16 main
pacific powerline 17 crosses

You should ask them to give you a win in that tournament too. You obviously lost because of the defective zipper

This is the junior section old man :lol:
silent gunz what racket is that? our 1st singles in JV uses it and he has TONS of them. I would think they're discontinued, but he just smashes them when/if he loses and pulls out a brand new one everytime.
He's not even on varsity, and he already smashes rackets?
Thats hammer 5.2. Quite nice racquet actually, I have one as a backup.
well he SHOULD HAVE been on varsity, he beat out a couple of people that were on it but he didn't feel like doing varsity b/c he would play doubles, and he wanted singles.
thats pretty stupid smashing racquets, its just a game... but then again i smashed my APD... felt every stupid, i used to have really bad temper problems... but then after that day... i told myself do i want to be this kind of person... so now im calm, i stay calm all the time through the game... none of my racquets have touched the ground...
but man if hes gonna smash them he should give them to me... there discontinued... i want some more
I never smash frames, but my RDS's are already scratched up, because I go for EVERYTHING no matter what it takes.
