    Tecnifibre Triax: Does this multifilament tennis string really do everything it claims to?

    Love this episode, and excited to try out the Triax as well (it's on my next TW shipment) --great insight by all and looking forward to it! I have similar set-ups to the playtesters (Solinco Hyper-G or Confidential at 52lbs, on Blade 98 V7)

    Need shoe advice - former vapor 9.5 wearer

    If you have a chance try the Vapor X wide version. I haven't played in them yet, but fits nicely right out of the box when I bought them during a sale.

    Last shoes you "stocked up" on?

    I'm on my last pair of Zoom Vapor 9.5 (white version still on ice just for clay/grass play). Love this model and will be very sad when this pair wears out.

    poll: which of these type of shoes is better

    I've been on a few pairs of Mizuno Wave Exceed Tours now (versions 2 and 3) and cannot wait to get the 4. It weighs only 12.4 ounces but now includes a 6-month outsole guarantee. There has been talk of previous versions being too narrow, but I am a medium wide and it fits me just fine, and...

    Adidas Stycon Laceless Tennis Shoe

    Picked these up this weekend as Adidas is having a 25% off plus 10% creator app member. Tried them on twice now in the store and they’re growing on me. Can’t wait to train in these to see how they are.

    Mizuno Wave Exceed Tour 4

    It seems like Mizuno fixed the narrow and long fit that was on the Wave Exceed Tour 2 and 3 (I had both versions). The fit was a bit long so I had to go a half size down. Thanks for sharing your first impressions, I will go true to size on the 4's.

    Adidas Stycon Laceless Tennis Shoe

    They look low to the ground, but from trying them on yesterday at the Adidas flagship store NYC, there is a layer of bounce midsole in there that's quite supportive. Overall, it's a nice fit but I'm still on the fence about how they'll perform on court. Only one way to find out!

    Novak wearing Solution Speed FF for 2020?

    Saw him on tv today playing Anderson at the ATP Cup wearing Solution Speed FF instead of his signature shoe Court FF 2. Interesting.

    From my experience Asics Gel Resolutions have the best durability for toe dragging.

    New Adidas Shoe?

    On the left it's a leather version of the Ubersonic 3 (I saw this shoe at the 5th Avenue flagship store in NYC). And on the right it looks like the classic Stefan Edbergs.
