    Head Gravity

    I've played with both, but have put a leather grip on my Tour. It feels as though there is more feel and slightly more control in the Pro, but better maneuverability with slightly more power in the tour, as most posters have advised.

    Swingweight unstrung/strung

    Found an under spec gravity pro with an unstrung 303 SW. 1.20 gauge got it to 328/329. 1.10 brought it down to 324/325. It’s been an experiment. Not entirely sure if this Pro is any better than the regular Tour. I have played both, but added a leather grip the Tour, which is a tad more...

    One For Posterity ?

    I have recently uploaded a video to not me but ... tube, and it was a fairly lengthy process, as it was a complete, unedited video of how it actually occurred. It was about a20 minute video, but had dead air, as in drinks breaks, minor conversations, no one on court, etc. Am I better off...

    Serve advice

    Hi mate, keep your left arm up a little longer and that should help keep your shoulders closed a little longer. Your shoulders are opening out ( think rotating) too early and you are hitting the serve front on. This is sucking power from the serve.

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

    Just joined the club. Got a 98 plus blue, put on a leather grip, and this may finally be the one to replace my old migrogels, but I want to give it a few more weeks to be certain before I stock up with a few more.

    Can you change your style of play after years of playing a particular way?

    Not necessarily. But it takes a lot of belief and acceptance of the fact that you are going to lose some matches until you come to terms with the new style of play. I recently changed my forehand from semi western to eastern, and due to age I am unable to run with the younger guys in long gut...

    HEAD Penn Official

    Will this be a more flexible version like the previous Team or Lite models. Also, will the handle be hollow to allow silicone injection? Cheers, Greg.

    Yonex Ai 98: tell me more about her

    Probably the wide spaced 16 x 19 string pattern. I had a similar issue with my Migrogel customs where I couldn't bring down my forehand early enough (after recovering from injury) unless I hit with excessive topspin. The nineties, even though a 16 x 19, are a tighter pattern due to the smaller...

    Most powerful 18x20 racquets?

    Don't know how you feel about modding, but I have added a leather grip and 15 grams of silicone into the grips of my Prince Tour Pro's (no exo ports) and it ia unequivocally the best racquet I have ever used. It is 18 x 20, good spin, unbelievable control,cheap and a great headlight balance. If...

    21st Century Toecutters: The Rise of Oz Tennis!

    John still has a soft spot for his son. If Bernie gets arrested, he can't play and then daddy doesn't get paid.

    Tomic Arrested

    Actually, Rafter is more of a stereotypical Queenslander. He loves his sport, his family, and doesn't mind a beer. Also worked BLOODY hard to get where he wanted to be. Tomic is just a tool.
