    The power pads as they're sometimes called are just small strips cut off a piece of leather. That's it, nothing more.

    I use them with poly on my PS85s and they definitely make some difference - mostly in softening the feel a little - marginally though. The times I've not used them the frame is definitely more tonky in sound.

    i do this too with my racket. I use this at the same place as federer. I used cyberflash on my mains and seems it did soften it a bit. like 5% change

    That's probably because you don't have a Nike wristband on the right wrist. Try that... if that doesn't work, bump it up with a Rolex on the left. That usually does it. ;)

    If by mediocre wife, you mean attractive, faithful, supportive, and child-rearing...


    You're nuts.

    You silly... the Rolex is only on training matches, where Fed doesn't hit his A grade shots. The real deal are without the watch, and your wife must be using her iphone when you play...

    Man... And I was hoping someone shaved down the grip pallet on a ProStaff Tour or a nSix.One Tour and painted it over... I'm so utterly disappointed... I was even hoping it was a finished job. Then I come to see it's a guy asking what power pads are and how to get/use them. Oh the utter heartbreak...
