    New Miami Open Venue vs Old

    Good point. As I said, if they keep it at all. I would prefer a grass court Masters replace Miami, and use the opening Miami would leave to tweak the schedule. I know this is very unlikely...

    New Miami Open Venue vs Old

    Time to make this tournament, if they keep it at all, the start of the clay court season. No need for another HC event after IW. Plenty of U.S. sites, including some in Florida, that could do this.

    Khachanov with Head

    https://www.head.com/us-US/news-detail/title/coming-home-karen-khachanov-returns-to-head-signing-long-term-contract/ This will be business for lawyers, like the failed Safin switch to Dunlop. No stencil on the not-blacked-out Blade paintjob, so this three sided drama (Karen, Head, Wilson) hasn't...

    Yonex Powercushion Sonicage Wide

    Could you please tell me if the uppers around the toe area are soft like the Asics Gel Resolution 6 were? None of the New Balance wides are soft in that region. Thank you!

    Official Wilson Clash thread

    My 2 pennies - as tested, weighs 11.2 oz strung @ 50# with Hyper-G 17, also with Wilson Pro Overgrip, Smiley Dampener. My Volkl V-Sense V1 MP weighs 10.8 oz set up the same way. The Clash feels like an IG Prestige with much more power to me. It is a great serving frame as it is so headlight it...

    Dunlop becomes new official balls partner at AO

    I wondered why the local shop's new order of ATP balls just said Tour http://www.pennracquet.com/tour.html now it's clear. Interested in your take on the Dunlop. The Tour plays just like the ATP ball, so only the label/name changed.

    Tennis Warehouse: Volkl V-Feel V1 Playtest

    Starting with the Quantum, Volkl has put a slightly more powerful version of the Classic with a different layup but with the same mold in the line and updated it every few years. The V-Sense is a new mold, I find it the best V1 ever so I will be interested to see if the Feel is even better.

    Tecnifibre TFlash 300 ps

    I liked it initially, but after a month went back to my Volkl V-Sense V-1 MP. Both strung at 50# with Hyper-G 17 @ 50 pounds. To me the Volkl is better at everything, including more stable, with a half ounce less weight. Just my 2 pennies.

    The Prince Phantom 93P is a gift to us from TW - My Review/AMA

    On the other hand, Radwanska plays with a frame that weighs 291 grams strung https://www.stringforum.net/board/showthread.php?t=23244&highlight=radwanska, and one of her opponents, Madison Keys, averaged 81 mph on her forehand at the 2016 AO...

    Pure Strike Pro Stock

    What Automatix says is correct - for example, my experience is limited to just the two frames referenced in my post. The Babolat rep seems to be in error, as per this link https://www.prostocktennis.com/products/babolat-pro-stock-aeropro-drive-2010-rg-2016-paint

    Pure Strike Pro Stock

    I've had the Prince Pro Stock version of the 03 White as it came from Prince (TX151P-100 27 TK4B),and the Head Pro Stock version of the IG Radical MP (TGT 260.3) customized to a WTA player's specs. Can't say I saw a whole lot, if any, difference in the Prince to retail. The retail IG Radical MP...

    Head Speed Touch PWR: breakin' the strings

    If you want to try a poly as a full bed that is cheap and soft, try Volkl Cyclone Tour 16 at 50 pounds. I think it's best to see if you like poly at all before delving into hybrids, and that is a good entry level poly. To me, 50 in Cyclone Tour would equate to 55 with Prince topspin. BTW, I...

    Great Trade With A_Instead

    You won't find a more pleasant person to deal with. Buying from, trading with, or selling to, highly recommended!

    Strings for Prince Textreme Tour 100p

    I love that frame, and also its 18x20 version, but I lose matches 7-6, 6-4 that I win 7-6, 6-4 with a tweener. It is sure a fun, comfortable hit. Hit a little with the TT 100P and it definitely has more power than the Tour 100 16x18. I think volkl cyclone 19 at 48# would work well in the TT 100P.
