"I agree.  It's hard to buy shoes without trying them on.  It's like racquets.  It may be a popular stick but you never know if its for you until you try it.  Thanks for the help!"

Help!! Don't know what Head shoe to get!

I got a sneak peak of the new Head shoes coming out in March. I need to buy one type of shoe for men and another for women. They all look great but I need help on which I should get based on looks. They all have pretty much the same qualities and features and the price will range between 89 to 109. Let me know what you think!This is the Men's Insane Pro. I like how it kind of wraps around the foot.…See More

"There are so many great stick out now. I personally use the Wilson 6.1 95 BLX. I'm a hard hitting baseliner so it gives me optimal control and I don't feel like the ball is flying on me. What do you use now? What kind of game style do you…"

How's the conference going? When are you coming back? I spoke to that woman Lani (Prince Red) and she is going to come in and feel the 4 1/4 and maybe even play with it. Then she'll make a decision to build it up or not.

The Youtek Prestige Pro or Mid were the ones I liked, but didn't have that plow. I haven't tried them leaded up. But the Microgel Prestige Mid with Big Banger/Becker Bomber copoly hybrid played very close to my Pro Tours, believe it or not.

Those Speed Pros felt rubbery to me, yet had that high stiffness rating. I'm hoping the new ones with Innegra are less stiff and twangy. :)

Prince EXO3 Tour 16x18 Love it!

Posted on December 2, 2010 at 9:16am 3 Comments

I got to play doubles with this stick Tuesday evening. I have been using the Wilson 6.1 starting from the ProStaff 6.1 Classic to the 6.1 95 BLX most of my tennis life. I wasn’t too sure how the Prince EXO3 Tour 16×18 would feel since it is only 10.9oz unstrung as opposed to my 6.1 with a 11.7oz unstrung weight. I was also worried about the 100in headsize instead of 95in like my 6.1.

Well neither mattered. I loved it! With the lighter weight I was…
