    CX 200 OS vs CX 200 (LS)

    The Dunlop CX200 is a nice all around racquet, but is not stable enough. It needs lead tape and/or head guard tape for added stability and plow through. I liked the CX400 Tour more. This would be my choice from this line of racquets.

    2021 US Open Tickets

    Haven't heard anything yet regarding when individual tickets go on sale. If you sign up for US Open Emails, you will get notified when individual tickets go on sale. You are better off getting the cheapest seat in Arthur Ashe than a Grounds Pass. The price difference is not much at all. And...

    Microgel v Youtek

    Both the Microgel Extreme MP and the Youtek Extreme MP are stiff racquets. They are both extended length racquets. Is there a particular reason you are looking at these racquets as a Ti Radical OS replacement.

    Tennis Bags Are So Unimaginative...

    I have the Yonex Pro Stand bag which is a stand up locker style bag. It has worked out very well for me.

    Synthetic gut to help with wrist pain?

    Taking time off from tennis is the best for letting the wrist heal. I wore a light wrist brace when I had to take time off from tennis from my wrist injury. Then when you start playing again, it would be best to not have any poly in your racquet. A full bed of NXT which you are already using...

    Hydrosorb Pro vs sweat

    I found that the Head Hydrosorb Pro grip can get very slippery. The Head Hydrosorb Tour grip is a better choice if you want to stick with Head grips. I actually prefer Gamma grips and use the Gamma Hi Tech grip on my Head racquets.

    How many of you playing pickle ball switched from Tennis?

    I have been playing pickleball for 2 years. It will never replace tennis for me, but it is a fun diversion. Took up pickleball as one of my friends who is just a novice tennis player wanted to be able to play a racquet sport competitively with me and some friends who all have tennis backgrounds.

    Need help. Head Graphene 360+ Speed MP vs Head Graphene 360 Extreme MP

    If I remember correctly, Yonex grips do run bigger, particularly if you replaced the original grip which is very thin.

    Advice on customizing a Head Youtek Instinct MP

    Hi. I do not own the Youtek IG Instinct MP, but I did hit with it for a few minutes when it first came out many years ago. I remember that it swung very fast and felt very light. These points were also mentioned in the TW review that you posted the link for. I do have some various classic...

    JackB1's 11oz Racquet Corner

    Good, but not great power. It is a good all-around tweener. Check out the reviews from the Tennis Magazine website, Tennis Nerd, and Tennis Warehouse. Dunlop has other lines that offer more power and spin.

    JackB1's 11oz Racquet Corner

    In the Dunlop CX line, the only 18X20 is the CX 200 Tour with the Leather Grip which is the Kevin Anderson endorsed racquet. The rest of the CX line (200 models and 400 models) is 16X19.

    JackB1's 11oz Racquet Corner

    The 16X19 string pattern is pretty tight on the CX400 Tour. This racquet actually works well for flat shots. I liked the CX400 Tour more than the CX200.

    Rackets have gone up in price

    I think most of the Head racquets recently went up $10 in price. So the Microgel Radical is now $99. But yes, racquets are getting more expensive. The price increases are worse for bicycles.
