    Been playing with no over grip lately

    Maybe it just come down to grip size, maybe the size without overgrip fits you better. You could try to switch to a thinner basegrip. After switching to Yonex a couple a years back I found their grip to be slightly big and therefore started to play without overgrip and there is really no...

    Yonex Ezone DR CLUB!!!!~~~!!!

    Honestly I have no idea how much job it would be to remove it but it could end with a messed up the racket. Besides that the chance for you making a better "handle filling" (for balance and vibration cancellation) than Yonex seems very slim. Maybe someone with experience of removing factory...

    Yonex Ezone DR CLUB!!!!~~~!!!

    I would strongly advice against removing the gel ... The racket could be made more HL by: * adding led to the handle below the base grip (best positions are just abov above and/or at the bottom of the handle. * changing to a heavier (leather) base grip. * changing to a thinner string. There...

    Socking news: Wilson Line 2019

    I have only played 5 minutes with a Clash but to me it just felt "different" .... Still here https://www.wilson.com/en-us/tennis/rackets advertise it to have "Ultimate Control".

    Wilson present their racket lines as follow: Clash - Ultimate Control Ultra - Effortless Power Pro Staff - Classic Precision Blade - Ruthless Accuracy It seems like Wilson have some room for improvement in their offering. Looking at this marketing it seems that I should expect higher accuracy...

    Change from DR 98 to Clash

    Do you really thing a few gram will make much difference if you have an issue with the weight of Dr98? Besides that the QC of Yonex seems very stable compare to Wilson. Maybe you end up with a racket heavier than the dr ... I'm not arguing against the clash (I have heard very positive comments...

    EZONE 98 VS EZONE 100

    Beginers should really stay away from polys. It would be especially bad to play with poly in a stiff racket ...

    EZONE 98 VS EZONE 100

    Seems strange that a beginner should have a preference of stiffness ;) ... If a beginner just limit his or hers selection one of these two rackets I would say go with the 98 since it's more arm friendly. If anyone ask me what racket to buy for a totally beginner I would suggest to buy second...

    EZONE 98 VS EZONE 100

    No. A generalization as this is meaningful or valid for anyone looking to buy a racket. These are two different models with different characteristics that may appeal to different players no matter which level you look at. Some high level player will prefer the 98 and some will prefer the 100 ...

    Yonex Ezone DR CLUB!!!!~~~!!!

    17L. After restringing I mostly plays with the lower tension racket but it really comes down to how I feel/play. Gradually I will gravitate more and more towards the the other racket as the tension drops.

    Do Rackets Degrade Over Time

    Maybe not but the I guess it really come down to how clean the players shots are ... any way these players have a lot of rackets to rotate. I would be intresting to know how many rackets the top ATP players has to their disposals. 20, 30, 50 or more?

    Yonex Ezone DR CLUB!!!!~~~!!!

    I have been playing with Dr98 a couple of years with RD Lyon and been pleased enough to not feel the need to try something else. I have a pair and ask the stringer to put 22 Kg on one of them and 24 on the other. I find these string playable quite long so at the end I guess the tension has...

    Do Rackets Degrade Over Time

    Yes of course they do. Nothing lasts for ever and rackets are no exceptions to this. Every thing that stresses the material will have an impact on it's aging. So stringing is one thing but how much one string job actually age the racket depends on how tight the stringing is and how gentle the...

    About one handed backhand racquet

    It's the size of the racket that you like playing with. Never mind the specified size of the racket, that's just a number. What matters is how the racket feels and plays for you. Btw. I find it quite fascinating that a lot of people claiming the "big general difference" between a 98" and a...
