    Natural Gut First Impressions

    I'm cheap so my setup was Pros Pro Hexaspin 17 + Klip Legend 16 - then it was Pros Pro Eruption 17, and now I have decided for the Clash Full bed Eruption at 44 lbs is fine.

    Natural Gut First Impressions

    Hybrid. NG mains at 55-60 lbs. Soft round poly crosses at 50-54 lbs. But with the Clash a soft poly Full bed at 44lbs should be fine for the arm and a better use of the racquet technology. Speaking from experience as I play with the Clash 100 and that has been my progression.

    J Brady...please quit trying to hit winners on every single shot!

    Simply amazing ball bashing on both sides but it was Osaka who used short balls and angles better. And threw in one crazy slow kick serve that Brady practically hit into the stands. Maturity.

    Indoor tennis this fall/winter

    We pick up balls always right after the point, but the bounce from the cold surface still isn't the same. At some point it's not really tennis but some other interesting game of "guess where the ball will bounce to". Tennis I don't mind playing in the cold for, but the other game just makes we...

    Indoor tennis this fall/winter

    I’m fortunate not to feel cold playing in much any weather above 30 but I draw the line at the point when the balls stop bouncing semi-normally.

    Dunlop Biomimetic 200, tour, lite

    Loved the Bio 200 Lite. What's funny is it is like, 11.6 oz - NOT light. Had a solid feel to it I have not felt since. (It's the middle stick in my profile photo.)

    AI 98 and DR 98

    Used the ai98 for several years and only switched because of the Clash 100. In my experience (4.0 level) it’s an honest racquet. There’s no magic - you get out of it what you put in it. So my opinion is to stay with it and work on everything else. Spend the money on good lessons and don’t fall...

    Pro's Pro Strings!?

    Using Black Eruption full bed in a Clash 100. Thinner gauge, and really liking it so far. I was happy with Hexaspin as well. Both work well as crosses for gut mains too.

    WTB Clash 100 V1, 4 3/8

    Cosmetics not critical but must be solid. Since I see sold 100s here in the $150 range I am looking to pay $145 plus (reasonable) shipping costs. I also have a Clash 98 4/14 I can trade.
