    Strings for different level players

    multiple factors come into play, when suggesting strings; I start with the basics: poly/kevlar for DURABILITY multis/nat.gut for COMFORT syn.gut for POWER I look at the player (age, gender, level) I look at the racquet they play with (open/closed string pattern) i then start to ask: -health...

    Help with Nat Gut stringing for 18x20

    im with @Irvin and others who say "do not cut"!!, your gonna end up short on the next racket if you do; "been there, done that"!! babolat vs gut does no give you the full 40', they give you 12 meters which is 39.3700787 feet post #2 from @esgee48 gives you directions but just so we are all...

    Babolat Pure drive FSI stringing pattern

    one other tricky aspect of the FSI racquets is the way the cross strings need to be installed,, the cross strings can only be started 1 way!! the starting knot indicator should be used there are grommets "humps", that the crosses need to lay ontop off,, otherwise they are flat in the "valleys"...

    String breaker with a sensitive elbow, is an 18X20 racquet my best bet?

    agreed, Balance: 13in / 33.02cm / 4 pts HL for the v7 w.blade 18/20 I believe I added about 2'6" of 1/2 lead in the handle to take it to the 8pts HL I like the overall weight was well into the 12oz, but its handle heavy so its not cumbersome for the 1HBH but once I got it there, the swing...

    Kirkland shoes almost gone.....have we lost out minds on shoe cost?

    I agree, if not picky about shoes, lots of options if you look for them In the $50 price range,, non marking, tennis specific shoes,, also the "tennis shoes", have a level of support for "tennis USE specifically", latteral support is big ive seen people fall due to no latteral support and/r too...

    Pro's Pro: Aqua Zorb overgrips?

    any indication as to a "name change", on these 2 batches you have?, or where they the same when you though you were reordering?? ive tried the first batch and did not like it, the velvet finish just does not feel good 2me when sweating, feel unsecure

    String breaker with a sensitive elbow, is an 18X20 racquet my best bet?

    for the elbow issue, I would make or buy a racket with at least 8-10pts headlight!! I modified the 18/20 to 8-9pts head light head.gravity has mp(16/20), and pro (18/20) I would also look into the head.radicals, both mp/pro,, both of these have tight patterns, that wont be...

    Pro's Pro Strings!?

    @tomato123 pros pro black.force has my vote, the 18lg 1.19mm allows for good snapback; will let the mains do their thangg,, but really any round poly string, thinner than the mains, will give you good snapback

    Wanted to share funny racquet comment

    I really did not notice, but it would not surprice me I would have hung around and explained how most pros don't play with the racquets we see on TV,, but when people make statements that far off from what I know to be true, then I don't bother anymore, life is too short,, and I have too many...

    Yonex VCORE series 2018

    I did not notice anything out of normal in this department the 95 is easier to swing on the 1hbh but the lack of bad-shock i get from the 98 makes it a better racquet IMO
