    VCore 98 vs VCore Pro 97 vs DR 98 vs ...

    Thanks for the suggestions. I use Hyper-G at 40 lbs already and use a decent amount of tungsten tape at 3 + 9. So it seems like I've maxed out the power I can get from the VCore Pro 330, while staying with a full poly setup anyway. If I get the VCore Pro 97 310 and lead it up to my current...

    VCore 98 vs VCore Pro 97 vs DR 98 vs ...

    I was playing with the Yonex DR 98 for a long time and really liked the racquet. But then I got a VCore Pro 97 (330) and like almost everything better about the racquet except that it has significantly less power than the DR 98. I hit serves better with it and love the feel. The problem is that...

    The Decline of Proper Cushioning

    Thanks. I played again today and had no stability issues. Also my knees feel much better than they normally do! Could still be all in my head but I think all the extra cushioning is helping. If this keeps up I will be stocking up on these.

    The Decline of Proper Cushioning

    I played in the CLB 2018 yesterday on green clay. I liked them! The traction was completely fine. Also unlike the Defiant Bounce, the tread doesn't trap giant chunks of clay (I can't wear the Defiant Bounce outside of tennis ever because it spews clay everywhere). Stability wise, I had two...

    The Decline of Proper Cushioning

    Thanks, I think I will give the 2018 CLBs a shot.

    The Decline of Proper Cushioning

    Thanks! Looks like it is out of stock everywhere in any of the colorways I think are ok though. This all reminds me I actually have bball shoes: 2016 Nike Prime DF. Does this look ok for clay court tennis? I actually don't like them all that much for bball though...

    The Decline of Proper Cushioning

    Hm well probably any decent shoe would help my knees. I only recently realized I was probably exacerbating a knee issue I had from lifting weights by wearing 1.5 yr+ old Gel Resolution 6s, which probably lost all their cushioning a long time ago. The outsole and tread on that shoe has held up...

    The Decline of Proper Cushioning

    So something like this should be better? It has full Boost it looks like. https://www.adidas.com/us/crazy-explosive-2017-primeknit-low-shoes/DB0554.html

    The Decline of Proper Cushioning

    How would something like the Dame 4s or Crazy Explosives fare on green clay (Har-Tru)? Also do b-ball shoes mark up clay or hard courts at all? https://www.adidas.com/us/dame-4-shoes/AC8650.html?pr=CUSTOMIZE_IMG_Dame%204%20Shoes...

    Still looking for that perfect string for DR98

    From previous searches, it seemed like everyone is usually complaining about how much of a pain it is to string poly on a drop weight stringer. Does anyone else have experience with stringing poly on a machine? If I knew I could get it to the 30-40 minute range, I would definitely buy a X-2 or...

    Adding a one handed backhand

    Thanks that makes sense. Also my two-hander is so bad that I'm not too worried about keeping it in tip top shape either. Hopefully the one-hander will develop and I can just keep the two hander for shots that are really difficult for a one-hander. And it's not like I have any particular...

    Adding a one handed backhand

    I've always used a two-handed backhand and it's always been my weaker shot. I hit a one-handed topspin backhand sometimes and I can hit some nice shots off relatively low balls only. My Sony Smart Sensor backs this up too...I tried using it today and hit personal records in backhand spin and...

    Signum Pro Triton

    Is this a relatively new string? Wondering if it will be offered in the US.

    PlaySight

    What courts are close to NYC? BTW the Playsight website is impossible to use. Every time I zoom into the map, having to zoom in approximately 20 times to get into viewing range, it randomly zooms out to show the entire world. Over and over.
