    I think Brittany or one of the reviewers said the reviews for the Graphene sticks will be up in about a month, which is odd I thought they'd be almost done now.

    A_Instead,

    We have a ton of new racquet reviews coming out. Like Francis27 and Blitzball said, we will have the new Head YOUTEK Graphene Speed Pro and MP and Instinct MP in about 3-4 weeks. Unfortunately, we don't always get racquets to playtest ahead of time hence the delay on these from the launch date.

    Here is the list of racquets we are reviewing:

    Yonex VCORE Xi 98
    Yonex VCORE Xi 100
    Tecnifibre Tfight 315 Ltd 16
    Tecnifibre Tfight 315 Ltd 18
    Tecnifibre TRebound 295 Pro
    Head YOUTEK Graphene Speed Pro
    Head YOUTEK Graphene Speed MP
    Head YOUTEK Graphene Instinct MP
    Volkl Organix 7 295 and 310
    Volkl Organix 10 Mid
    Dunlop F 2.0 Tour
    Dunlop F 5.0 Tour
    Dunlop M 5.0

    Plus, a couple more surprises!

    Brittany, TW

    Bubbagumptennis,

    Thanks B.
    WOW!!!
    Sounds like your TW crew is very busy.
    It is exciting for us to hear about the new offerings and always good to see your "take."
    Thanks again for your dedication and commitment to our wonderful sport of tennis...

    (It has to be hard to adjust when hitting with so many racquets and then play with your reqular racquet when you play your matches, your personal game has to suffer???)

    A_Instead,

    Thanks for the kind words. We are glad you enjoy watching our reviews as much as we enjoy making them. I will have to say when I first became a playtester, i did have a small adjustment period when I was constantly changing racquets (as I was used to playing with the same racquets for 3-4 year spans) day to day. Now I can easily switch racquets in the middle of a set without a problem. Now most are within a certain spec range but its definitely a lot of fun!

    Brittany, TW

    Can I ask who'll be reviewing what? How do you decide who reviews what rackets?

    I think you're all lotsa fun but wouldn't mind seeing more of Tif, Karly and Mark.

    You guys ever think about showing full matches? Couple of match ups would be great fun to watch!

    The tf 320 would be a nice 'surprise', as well.

    sportmac,

    We try to pick playtesters who enjoy playing with specs within a range of the racquet and try to not put someone who enjoys heavier racquets (like Troy or Andy) on a sub 11 ounce racquet or vice versa. We also try to get a range of different playing styles on each racquet. The playtesters on these reviews is a mix of the following playtesters- Andy, Jason, Tiffani, Karly, Chris, Spencer, Granville, Mark, Troy, Sean, Mike and me.

    You will definitely be seeing more of Mark and Karly, they are both in several of the reviews listed. As far as Tiffani goes, she is currently pregnant and after her one playtest (TRebound) she will be taking a break. Not to worry though she will be back on the court in no time!

    Brittany, TW

    Brittany: don't forget Siobhan!

    The O10 mid will definitely bring a smile. I just saw one in my local shop. It swings thru the air so fluidly! Stringbed is so responsive with my very brief hit.

    coolblue123,

    Siobhan is currently working (started beginning of 2013) at our sister store, Tennis Warehouse Europe. She will be back later this year playtesting and on video reviews here at TW.

    Bubbagumptennis,


    Unfortunately, we have no plans at this time to review the M2.0. We still have it on our playtest list and our goal is to come back around and playtest it in a month or two.
