    Has string design stagnated?

    Same strings with different tension combinations adds to the confusion. For me the decision is around least to most arm pain. The high end ones(RPM blast, LXN, ..) hardly hold tension or feel beyond 2 hrs of hitting. I deeper I go into researching, the more disappointed I get. Sent from my...

    Artengo TA930 Monofilament

    Has anyone tried the Artengo TA930 strings? I tried them at 52lbs tension and was pleasantly surprised by the soft feel. It also held tension pretty good. Its at the ~$8 price point. With so many brands out there, wanted to check opinion of others. Does anyone know who manufactures for them...

    Why did you switch to Yonex?

    You are right about the lead, I did try tungsten but a lot of it is required and its almost 10x cost. Also, 1gm of tungsten was concentrated to 1 inch whereas 1gm of lead was 4 inches so I was able to spread the weight better. Its really because of lack of options. More than lead, its the...

    Why did you switch to Yonex?

    Its indeed thin! Aftermarket ones are thicker for sure. Its alright for me, hit yesterday and could feel the difference in my game. I was able to grip better. Downside - it will wear down faster since there is minimal cushion. Was thinking of sanding the base material down a little to make...

    Why did you switch to Yonex?

    Not till today. I took out the stock grip and replaced with 2 overgrips(wilson sensation) to lower the grip size. Yet to try this setup. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Why did you switch to Yonex?

    Got a VCP 310 2019 and felt my volleys, serve improved. Had to adjust my baseline ground strokes for depth since it felt like a low powered racket. I have a single handed backhand and that is my current issue area with this racquet. The grip size I prefer is 4 1/4 but could only find 4 3/8...

    Help with motivation and staying focused?

    Very common with multiple variable factors such as weather, equipment, audience, your mindfulness and your opponent. There are control points that you command and then others that you don’t. Suggested regime to keep the focus- 1. Have a pre-game routine. Warm up, your pep-up music, something...

    I'm really good at knocking - but I cant win games

    Almost 6 years since this post! Thanks everyone for the pointers, I kept working on it and it is slow incremental process. Id encourage anyone with this issue to be patient and keep at it. This is the sport I love so every investment is high value for me. Book recommendation - the inner...

    straight arm fh vs. bent arm fh

    Well mostly the blame is put on Stiff Guts / Stiff Frame / Racket Stability / Ball centering .... I say the mechanics of the game demand a different kind of training. A kind of training that requires a Bio Mechanic's expertise.

    straight arm fh vs. bent arm fh

    Whats the injury potential for these ? IMHO The double bend would be inclined to bends and twists and aches and pains

    Neck / Wrist / Lower Back pain

    IFT is interferential therapy. 1. I had to start somewhere, thats why the current description of the situation I am in and seeking people who faced something similar. 2. I feel these are connected, I see a pattern of occurrence. 3. Choice of gear seems like a key here. Ofcourse they are...
