    Well looks like the price of the Pure Aero VS went up $20. Would expect the new strike VS to be $269 a piece now as well. Getting criminal…

    Pure strike tour 16x20?

    I just got a new pure strike tour 16x19 and it’s the best frame I’ve hit with since the old babolat pure control tours from the early 2000s. I really miss that frame. Stiff but solid and not harsh. The tour 2020 version is way more comfortable than the project one 7 16x19.

    Court cost

    Does anyone know ballpark cost of a home claytech court? Has anyone played on one recently? I am contemplating installing one but haven’t seen much in the way of threads here in a while with the search function.

    Why the Outrageous Racket Prices?

    The MAP has also destroyed brick and mortar vs internet competition. Now that everyone sells for the same price no one gets an edge. I find this practice almost a monopoly. Imaging if the big internet dealers actually had to compete against each other with price offerings. Pure drives used to...

    2019 Wilson Blade

    agree 100%. The gut poly hybrid feels so soft but lacks feedback in this frame. I played much better with full poly.
