    Least Powerful Gut

    I'd say it's quite a bit more resistant than Babolat VS Touch 16 and Wilson NG 16 (new version). I'm not a string breaker and after ~12h with SPPP in the cross, fraying is minimal. Babolat and Wilson would have been a mess by then, especially the new Wilson.

    Federer Strings @ Wimbledon

    I've always been curious why he uses ALU rough as the cross instead of the smooth version, which should give more spin from snapback

    Anyone using any electronic sensors? Zepp, Sony etc and thoughts?

    I was thinking of buying the sony sensor only to know it's been discontinued. Zepp 2 seems to be the best currently but I read that it doesn't do very well with displaying shot-by-shot stats. Has the app been updated to include this? The Head version seems to have been updated to introduce this...

    Deflated natural gut packaging

    Kind of a trivial question. All the natural gut that I've purchased so far came in inflated packages (just like potato chips), I believe to keep the freshness and protect them. I just received one that appears barely inflated. I'm not sure if there's a puncture. Has anyone received deflated...

    Yonex Vcore Pro 97 I've earlier briefly compared DR98 vs Pro97 (link above). It would help to know where you placed your weight. My DR98 was weighted up to 366g but it swung lighter than stock Pro97 because only...

    Yonex Vcore Pro 97

    Tour G330 is one hellava stable racquet with great plow through. But it was too much for me, so I went to DR98. Great racquet too but I was never in tune with it. Pro97 came out and I went back to Tour G330 out of curiosity just to recap the feel. It was a great second honeymoon. The heft was...

    Best natural gut currently

    Strange that they feel similar but Wilson has much worse durability

    Best natural gut currently

    Has anyone tried the new Wilson gut? I bought it along with the Luxilon gut out of curiosity. Luxilon lasted soooo long (crossed with SPPP) that it's been almost a year before I could string the Wilson last month. Although they are supposedly both made by Luxilon, the Wilson seemed much less...

    Yonex Vcore Pro 97

    I've used DR98 previously and Tour G330 before that. I've always used heavier racquets (but G330 is a bit too heavy...very nice and stable though) so I added 2x3.5g to 3/9 position of the DR98 (SW~328, static weight 366g due to grip/butt mod). I was happy with the setup but always felt something...

    Yonex Vcore Pro 97

    That does seem really off. How did you check the version of your racquet? Does Pro 97 indicate explicitly 310 or 330 on the racquet these days? I skipped the Duel G but for Tour G, the specs on the throat indicate the weights for both the 310 and 330 versions (i.e. G:310g;HG:330g). The only...

    Yonex Vcore Pro 97

    Would someone who has played with Tour G330, Duel G330 and Pro 330 compare their maneuverability? It seems like the consensus is that Pro 330 is the most maneuverable. So on a scale of 10, with Pro 330 being 10, where do Tour G and Duel G stand? Thanks!

    Yonex VCore 95D

    95D is really nowhere near what I'll consider demanding. Mine was 362g strung (and a few minor customisation) with a SW of 315. I always fear overhitting with it.

    Yonex Vcore Pro 97

    Wow, this version is getting great review. I recently took out my Tour G300 after over a year with the DR98 and it was my best hitting session in quite a while...for 30 minutes. It wasn't long before I was reminded why I switched over to DR98. Though my Tour G330 and DR98 are only 4g apart, the...
