    Official Wilson Clash thread

    Makes perfect sense, appreciate the response. Do you use the Tour? It seems that the 98 has a bit more lower trajectory/court penetration - even so, I'm not sure it's enough to make a difference. But maybe not (Jouke)? I've played 5 matches with it (it's been on/off for 6 months). and I'm...

    Official Wilson Clash thread

    I have the Tour 100. I love it and it accentuates my game (4.5 grinder). I doubt I'll ever fully, successfully change my style. But in the dream that I do, I see myself hitting winners. For some reason, I don't find winners that easy to hit with this racquet. Is it just me ? I get that...

    I'm liking Volkl Cyclone 17 @ 48lbs (not sure if it's round). Had my best hit in a while last night. ** this is with the previous (blue) VCP97 310. Loving this stick now after overlooking it (chose the WUT over it, jumping on then off the ClashWagon, among others). Interested to see how the...

    But it’s not based on technique, it’s based on results.

    I played with the Tour last night in a 4.5 league match. Hyper G 16 at 52 lbs. Kind of bum weather (at least it wasn't raining), and a night match to boot - at around 45*… I imagine this will feel much better in the warmer weather.... I think I have zero negatives. My highlights...

    Babolat PURE DRIVE VS 2019

    What part of the Bay area do you live in (new to the area, looking for tennis ppl). This rain is crazy. I found the PVDS to be good on slice and BH (but it wasn't my ideal setup, fresh multi so who knows).

    Yea, I could grind all day with it, but I finally lost a match vs my spitting image. But the serving issue really stood out in doubles....

    Prince Textreme Tour 100 (310) Thread

    Given 1) that I have demo'd, bought, tried and wasted $ (and thoroughly enjoyed) buying so many racquets, 2) the high score and review praise for these (as much as reviews can be tough to dissect) 3) the spec wheelhouse (w/r/t all the sticks I've tried and played with...) That I will probably...

    Prince Textreme Tour 100 (310) Thread

    Yea, 87, that’s pretty high. As much as I want to try the 93p, I know I’ll love it but won’t be able to win two matches a day with it. Even the 14 x 18 might be asking too much. However, this one.... :) I loved the tour 100 16 x 18 (except for no free serve points) and the warrior 100 (but...

    Babolat PURE DRIVE VS 2019

Clash Tour - comfort, ?TBD Yonex VCP 97 - 310 (played well with this 2nd time around) Trusty Blade CV 16 x 19 - best of all worlds I do get concerned about the Clash on serve - the best stick I've played with...

    Babolat PURE DRIVE VS 2019

    Thx for the review. I played 6 games with it yesterday. Tournament, 2nd rd of the day. *Won my first match, scratchy, ugly but a W. My second match in a year, still coming back. So expectations are low ish. Demoing as the holicking has been bad over the past 10yrs. Trying out the VCP 310...

    Yonex Vcore Pro 97

    Beside the physical specs, what are the main differences bw the 310 and the PS97; or the 330 and the RF97? Eg... Softer, forgiving maneuverability, etc.?? I think the 330 might be too much for singles. TIA!
