    Closest RF Racquet compared to the original Pro Staff 85

    Just find another used PS85. There is no real substitute. Angell TC90 or 95 with similar weighting/balance may come somewhat close, but I never was able to find a good surrogate. K90 swingweight is much higher than the PS85, which makes it quite a bit different in my experience. There just...

    1st Stringing Machine - tabletop, $1K budget

    If you can get the ELS for 1k and don't care about spending at the top end of your budget, go for that. You'll get the most efficiency out of an electronic machine which seems to be a high priority for you. If going non electronic, I'd recommend a crank over a drop weight for sake of efficiency...

    Degenerative meniscus tear at 32??

    I'm a radiologist. A meniscal tear by definition is traumatic. Degeneration of the meniscus can predispose to tearing, however I find it highly unlikely that you had preceding degeneration of the meniscus at your age. And based on the MR still shot you provided, I don't see signal abnormality...

    Klip gut sale

    This string was on sale for $20 (when buying 3 or more packs) a few weeks back. How often does that sale happen? And any sale planned in the near future? Thanks.

    Is The Wilson Pro Staff 85 The Easiest Frame To Serve Big With? Are PS85 topspin groundie woes a myth?

    Came back to my PS85s a couple weeks ago after using the TC95 for a few years. Love both sticks, but there’s just something about the PS85. It’s like an extension of my arm. Placement, plow through, and feel are all superb. The backhand slice is beyond wicked. I’ve been on the lookout for a few...

    I think it would have to increase SW some. Even if you add nothing but weight to the handle, the force needed to rotate the racquet at the focal point (the handle) would increase, albeit less so than adding weight at the hoop. The 320g 10 HL is an interesting idea. How’s the swing weight compare...

    I need some input. I'm planning on ordering the V3 TC95 18x20 63 RA. Curiosity has got the better of me even though my classic TC95 is perfect. My current TC95s are 320g 12 pts HL. I'm debating whether to up the weight for a little more plow through by going with the 330g 12 pt HL version. Main...

    PENN ATP BALL, what happened to the quality? Anyone else experience this?

    I just ordered a case this past December and all the cans I've used have been good thus far. Maybe you got a batch that was sitting in the factory for too long.

    My quest: Finding the best overgrip (Results!)

    Has anyone else noticed the sharp drop in quality from wilson pro overgrips in the last few years? The newer grips feel much thinner and flimsier than what Wilson used to put out. I found an old unused pro grip to compare to.. the difference is quite striking.

    Anybody who can directly compare the V2 and V3 TC95 18x20 RA 63? I'm super happy with my TC95 (320g 12) but am thinking of getting one with slightly more weight in the 330g option. Now that the V3 is out, it's hard to fight the urge to get one and try it.

    Kirschbaum max rough power reel vs single set, different feel?

    I recently bought a kirschbaum max power rough 18g reel to save money after using the individual packs. It didn't feel like the same string. Not as lively, lower powered, not as much spin. I restrung from the reel 5 or 6 times with the same results. I thought it was maybe due to the change in...
