    Grip Size Dilemma

    I was always told to go with the smaller grip size if you're in between two sizes. As I'm sure you already know, it's much easier to build up a grip size than to make one smaller. That said, if you're trying to get rid of arm pain, using a grip that's too small might just create different...

    The Babolat Pure Strike Project Two Zero Thread

    Does anyone have a sense of specs or release date? Similar to the current iteration of rackets/ fall 2019?

    Live by the Blade...Die by the Blade...

    Has it been confirmed that Wilson is updating the Blade in 2019? That seems like a weird thing for Wilson to do since they've just transitioned pros who previously used Burn PJs to Blade PJs (e.g., Halep).

    Replacing Pure Strike Tour (2014)

    Hi all: I've been looking for a replacement for my Pure Strike Tour (2014). I only have one left, so now seems like a good time to switch. I like the stability, control, and relatively soft/flexible feel of my current racket. My only gripe is that I'd like the balance to be a little more...

    Head Graphene 360 Speed Pro vs Yonex VCORE Pro 97 (310)

    I've hit with both. I found the Yonex to be much more comfortable and control-oriented and stable (although there was less of a difference in terms of stability). I found the Speed to be surprisingly firm and jarring, especially on off-center hits. I also never felt like I could figure out how...

    Yonex Vcore Pro 97

    I am strongly considering switching to the VCore Pro 97, but I don't know whether to choose the 310 or 330 model. I liked the 330 as it was, but it was a little heavy for me to play with now that I only play a couple of times a week/ doesn't leave much room for customization. I liked the 310...

    Wilson Ultra Tour vs Head 360 Speed Pro ?

    I demoed both and much preferred the Ultra Tour. I thought it felt more comfortable to hit with- not only when I hit the ball in the sweet spot, but also on off-center hits. The UT felt more stable and plush, and, IMO, gave me better feel of the ball. I didn't enjoy the Speed Pro- it somehow...

    Adult clinics/ leagues in NYC

    Hi all: I'm a 4.0~ player (former competitive junior about 10-15 years ago, very rusty). I just moved to NYC and was wondering whether anyone knew of any adult tennis clinics/ leagues to join? I thought I've done a bit of Googling and seen clinics at the Midtown Tennis Club, Gotham Tennis...

    Demo advice

    Hey all: I've posted here before but rarely. I'm a former sectional-/ national-level junior player. I'm getting back into tennis after a long break- injuries, grad school, and whatnot. We never used ratings, but I guess I'm about a 4.0/4.5 at the moment. I'm an aggressive baseliner-...

    Current equivalent to old rackets

    Hi all, I was a former junior/ college player. Haven't done much serious playing in a few years, but I'm hoping to get back into the swing of things in the coming months. I've got a Pure Strike Tour now (it was a purchase to hopefully get me back to the court a few years), but I never really...

    New Yonex/Babolat lines?

    So, there's no plan for Yonex to release direct replacement for the VCore Tour 97? The VCore F or the Wawrinka rackets are the closest it gets?

    New Yonex/Babolat lines?

    Hey all, I was wondering if anyone knows whether Yonex is coming out with a new line to replace the Yonex VCore Tour 97 (330g)? Is the Wawrinka racket supposed to replace it or will there be a new generation of the racket? I originally thought the VCore F was going to fill the void but it seems...
