    Logos on posters

    Hi all, Any thoughts on whether or not it is ok to have brand logos (Wilson, Babolat etc.) on posters or other material to outline what brands of string you are stocking and using? Thanks, Phil.

    A tip for better accuracy when measuring swingweight

    Hi Irvin, Need to pick your brain again!! Made that device for unstrung swingweight but when I hang the racket it doesn't swing in the axis I need to measure the swingweight and swivels back and forth as well as left to right. Was using a piece of poly string to hang it. Do I just need...

    Grommet replacement

    Hi all, Just wondering if you wanted to put some lead under the bumper/grommet strip on a new racket that has never been strung (RF97 autograph), could you pull out the grommets and re-install or would you still need a new set in this case? Thanks, Phil.

    Measure Twist Weight

    So it swivels side to side while hanging above it's head from the plastic? Makes sense. I thought it had to be sideways which is what was confusing me. Thanks.

    Measure Twist Weight

    @Irvin, last question of the day! Why with Stoneage's method is his hang point so low (7.5) and in your screenshots it is 69.2 Think I follow most of it but getting lost at that piece. You are still hanging the racket on it's side right?

    A tip for better accuracy when measuring swingweight

    Brilliant @Irvin. Thanks as always! Also I guess you just input the hang point and swing point at 10cm?

    A tip for better accuracy when measuring swingweight

    Hi everyone, if you wanted to test unstrung swingweight, could you run a piece of string through the frame and tie it off outside then hang it from this?

    DIY: Balance Board

    Hi everyone, quick question on this. Made a board at the weekend with some eye screws and a dowel however I am struggling to get the racket to balance exactly. It goes from handle down to head down with the tiniest movement. Trying to work out if the dowel is too thin or maybe not completely...

    Why'd I get this balance board? Ignorance is bliss

    Quick question on this. Made a board at the weekend with some eye screws and a dowel however I am struggling to get the racket to balance exactly. It goes from handle down to head down with the tiniest movement. Trying to work out if the dowel is too thin or maybe not completely level or if I am...

    DIY - Matching rackets

    Thanks for explaining that. So in effect, using something like the stringway calculator https://www.stringwaynederland.nl/SW-TA-online/SwingCalc/index-en.php where you input length, balance point and weight and get a figure in kg cm2 can't be used to then determine swingweight without some...

    DIY - Matching rackets

    @Irvin apologies if this has been covered before, how does the kg cm2 figure relate to the simple swingweight number provided by manufacturers and how can you convert kg cm2 to this number? Thanks.

    Wilson specs

    Ya it's not ideal! The handle is even more annoying on the third racket. That one is as big without an overgrip as the other two are with the overgrip on!
