    knee pain

    Scratching noise could be either meniscus or patella. Try to rest for a few days if it does not go away in max two weeks then see a doc. In both cases, building stronger leg muscles (especially quads) helps protecting the knees. Sent from my SM-G975F using Tapatalk

    Yonex Polytour Fan Club

    I love Yonex strings. And PTGP is my favorite one too. I love the pocketing feeling it has and the price and the tension maintenance and the power and comfort and feel. <3 I usually play with the 125 version but want to try the 120 too. I tried it as a cross with TF X1 and it was a disaster. Not...

    that is correct and it's actually a good value for a full bed of poly. With Alu Power Rough you do not get more than 3-4h of tension maintenance.

    Hybrid Yonex Polytour pro 125 with Head Velocity MLT or full HVMLT

    Poly Tour Air is even more gentle on the arms than PTP. You should give it a try.

    TF X1 Biphase + Yonex PTP issue

    Already using it. It works and I like it. But since now I am testing and changing strings and tension I'll first try to find a combo which I like with the classic stringing method. Once found, I'll order a new Sergetti sheet ;)

    TF X1 Biphase + Yonex PTP issue

    Totally agree. I am not trying to copy the pros or anyone. I was just trying to follow some guidelines to have a starting point. And Stringway seemed to make sense since it was taking into account the racquet shape and specs. I'll definitely keep playing and experimenting with strings and...

    TF X1 Biphase + Yonex PTP issue

    The Stringway website suggests this tension for those with arm injuries based on my racquet specs: M 24.3kb/53.6lbs and C 23.9kg/52.7lbs. Since this is about 2kg/4.5 lbs lower than I usually play with, I'll go with this setting to begin with. The PTP gives me no discomfort whatsoever to my arm...

    TF X1 Biphase + Yonex PTP issue

    Would this solve also the power issue? or shall I go down a bit with the tension too? It 0.6kg differential ok? I calculated it using http://stringway-nl.com/en/

    TF X1 Biphase + Yonex PTP issue

    Are you suggesting to have the crosses at a higher tension than the mains? Yonex itself (and other sources suggest otherwise). What would be the benefit of stringing the crosses at higher tension than the mains?

    TF X1 Biphase + Yonex PTP issue

    Hi, I play with a Yonex Vcore 98 and typically with PTP125 strung at 26/25.4 kg with a lot of top spin. Never broke a string. I wanted to try a hybrid to increase a bit the power and tension maintenance. I tried the TF X1 on the mains at 26kg and PTP120 on the crosses at 25.4kg. Out of the...

    Feedback :Sergetti Stringing Methods

    I tried Sergetti and it holds the tension really well. I typically string Yonex Poly tour Pro at 26/25.4kg. Usually, when the tension drops 3/4kg on the main i restring. With classical stringing method this means for me about 6h of play. With Sergetti, all being equal, I've played so far 17h...

    Raquet specs and shot selection

    Hi, Disclaimer: read until the end before marking this post as "another post about heavy vs. Light raquets". Assume you play with a Head light but heavy frame raquet. Say your FH and BH slice are excellent, your serve average, your 1HBH below average. Now you try the same frame but 10g...

    Question for all who have switched to heavier frames

    With heavier raquets you'll need much more fitness to be able to play long matches or multiple matches close to each other to good a decent level over time as you get tired. Only playing tennis might not be enough though. You may want to train also off the court. Sent from my SM-G975F using...
