    If I'm a 3.5, should I use a Players' Raquet or Tweener?

    If you've narrowed your list down to those 3, you should demo them before settling on one if possible. Another option you can go with is to group the racquets by spec and then demo them in batches. That way you can get a feel for what specs fit your playstyle/level. Player's and Tweener's are...

    Racket and string combinations

    As you get to the lower end of the tension range, you do get more power, but the string bed has a different feel. I play some of my rackets on the really low end and there's a definite difference in how the frame plays. You might get the same power as some of the other rackets, but the feel will...

    BLX 6.1 95 16x18 too powerful ?

    As long as you like the frame, stick with it and you can grow. Don't forget about other factors like technique, string type and tension. Strings are often overlooked, but they play a major role in how a frame performs.

    Any use/used a Kneissl Tom's Machine???

    which one are you interested? the 27.5 or the 28 inch version? they play quite differently from one another.

    racket weight

    general rule of thumb is to just use the heaviest racket that you can swing comfortably, so as long as you can still hit your backhands comfortably there's no need to make any changes. What usually ends up happening is so you make weight change to try to improve the backhand, but then that...

    Capped Radical specs?

    specs vary from racket to racket considering head's quality control. it also depends on which radical you cap as the specs are all slightly different as well.

    Volkl Tour 10 Mid size Gen I!

    great frame. flexible. excellent control. low power. definitely a player's frame. that's the short of it. it's definitely a great frame. it's just too bad they're hard to come by.

    Which Wilson Racket?

    Everyone's got a different preference. Demo them and find out. It's really the only way to know for sure.

    Ok To String Below Recommended Tension?

    there's nothing wrong with going below recommended tension. however, if you go too low it feels like you're playing with a net instead.

    C10 still great but....

    i don't think there's anything out there that plays identical to the c10 with more pop. have you tried different string types and lead?

    Need some help......

    the prestige mp won't play similar to the mid at all. its a big lighter and has a much lower swingweight. it's best to give it a demo and find out for yourself. if you really like the mid, but are looking for something with a bigger headsize, you could always lead the mp.

    Should i clear coat?

    definitely clear coat it. you can go with either the matte clear coat or the glossy. either way, you can get both at like wal-mart or any place that sells spray paint stuff. i haven't had any trouble with the clear coat i used.
