    VCORE 98 (2021) String Setup

    Signum pro firestorm 17g at 58lbs. I usually play dense pattern so going to an open pattern I increase my tension. Firestorm is a very soft and crisp poly.

    Opening up the Baiardo

    @sman789 did you purchase the motor straight from Wilson?

    No love for a favourite string of mine

    Kirschbaum strings are highly underrated. I think it is mainly due to too many offerings, Confusing naming, unique coloring and lack of marketing. My favorite kirschbaum string is competition. The only complaint I have with competition is the color. It’s spot on kirschbaum signature golden...

    Neos Glide Bars

    The product video was posted 9 years ago and I’m surprised that I’ve never come across it. Definitely a cool idea but the clamp bases and locking mechanism does not look like there is much design in it. Perfectly functional though. You could maybe just purchase that conversion base plate and get...

    Neos Glide Bars

    Email JC or the TM customer service and place your order in for the glide bars. I purchased one recently and they are exactly like stock. On back ordered items that I put my order in for, they came sooner than estimated. Jc definitely over delivers. I can’t imagine that machining glide bars...

    Luxilon Element

    I’m surprised no mention of M2 has come up in this conversation. Haven’t had a chance to try element but I understand that it is an improved version of M2. For those who aren’t familiar with m2 the poly material is coated over softer (TPU?) material. Like others said durability is a huge issue...

    And so it ends

    I’m glad to read the positive turn of events on this thread. Rabbit I wish for many more years of service in your mighty sensor. At some point I hope that you’ll have the longest running sensor in existence. It might happen with all the knowledge on this forum. When I read your first post, my...

    Linear Gripper vs Rotational Gripper?

    I’ve never used a linear gripper on a drop weight but I have experience with the rest. I think the gamma gripper is the best because of one feature, the counter rotational adjustment. The gripper can be rotated counter to how the string pulls the gripper. This is useful for adjusting the...

    Looking for a GOOD inexpensive stringing matching for both tennis and badminton

    For Gamma drop weight machines, the 602fc progression II machine is a great option. The weight on the machine splits into a lighter weight so that you don’t have to buy a second weight to string badminton. This model has all the high end features like swivel clamps and 6 pt mount. It is also...

    Stringing two piece on a one piece

    Wow. I’m surprised that you had enough slack to channel the string all the way to the top. That racquet is an aluminum model. Honestly I don’t think they were designed to be restrung. But that doesn’t mean it can’t be done. If there is no obvious hole for tie off, you can normal pick on of the...

    When to settle down?

    Without going into extensive detail, the simple answer would be: if you do your own stringing = experiment. If not than stick with one string. Reason being is because there may be times where you try a string and absolutely hate it. The labor costs and string mark ups will add up if you are...

    Racquet Strung Twice, String Broke Twice (the same place) in a Day.

    Visionary: where exactly on the crosses did the string break? Near the grommet is what most members are imagining. Also which crosses? Toward the top or bottom? What strings are you using? Don’t say 19g or badminton string strung at 70 lbs.

    It was the first thing that came to mind when the OP said “wrap the string around”. Otherwise it would have to be a rotational tensioning gripper but I have never seen rubber on those parts. (Klippermate, gamma drop weight and gamma els electronic rotational gripper)

    New Yonex Commercial - New VCore Pro

    Wow the PJ looks very retro. Reminds me oh older Wilson frames. I think the sledge hammer 3.8 has similar paint scheme. Eager to see them in shops and get more details on tech upgrades

    Sounds like you are missing the Diablo. Posting a picture of your machine would help
