    The new blade V7 May just be the best blade so far

    So Wilson have produced a PT630 in 18x20 pattern, but also a PT in 16x19 a la Murray. Petty cool :)

    I Want A 120 MPH Serve

    Yeah to me that looks quicker than 100-110. To compare, here is a 105mph serve according to Playsight data. That other one looks quicker, but as others mention placement and spin are more effective. With my technique at the moment, I’m not serving any quicker than this, but it doesn’t bother me.

    Forehand grip, which is it?

    Yeah looks to me like an extreme eastern. I thought Fed is more extreme eastern now. Not sure, but I recall he used to have it facing the back more in his earlier years as well.

    2hbh ... I now think arm snap, not hands/wrist snap ... DOH!!!

    That drill sounds like a good way to get the feel and the sequencing of positions. I am currently using an eastern for the left hand. I have tried SW but never gave it a proper go. I recall not feeling I could extend through the ball as much. I might try it again next time I’m out as I could...

    2hbh ... I now think arm snap, not hands/wrist snap ... DOH!!!

    Yeah Its not just a left hand forehand where fh principles just apply. Its a different stroke for me. Here is how I try and drop it in the slot before the forward swing:

    2hbh ... I now think arm snap, not hands/wrist snap ... DOH!!!

    I find I set the lag by actively dropping the racquet with the arms at the end of the take back. It’s a conscious thing and not as a result of rotation during the forward swing into the ball.

    Forehand grip, which is it?

    Regarding your comment about string facing the back fence, grip plays a part the more extreme you go but for you it looks to be also due to some hand orientation in your take back. Yours looks laid back and see Andy here

    Forehand grip, which is it?

    Extreme eastern looks more conservative than your grip imo. Do you have your pinky off the handle?

    Forehand grip, which is it?

    Why would I have a problem? Seems odd asking a relative beginners question about your own grip.

    Forehand grip, which is it?

    With the amount you post on here you can’t work out what your own grip is?

    Is it possible to learn a semi-western forehand at an advanced age

    Eastern is a great grip and don’t think it limits my ability to hit a decent forehand. Found it too difficult to transition to something as extreme as sw, and figured why bother.
