    My experience with flexy vs stiff racquets

    I have tried many rackets with different RAs and setups (stated not measured) and coming from tennis elbow, I have found that its got more to do with weight, SW, strings and tension, then RA rating alone. Sure low RA (<62) helps but even higher RA rackets can feel very comfortable, or vice versa...

    Yonex Vcore Pro 97

    with total of 4gr at 11&2 and dampener, replacement grip and OG, mine is 340gr and 328-330SW and 5HL. with only 2 grams total at 10&2, it is like to be close to 325SW and more than 5HL.

    Yonex Vcore Pro 97

    Also find this the best setup, 2 grs around fhe 2nd cross is like 11&1 (2.6 sw per gram) and with dampener it comes to around 330SW (317 + 2.6 x 4 + 2) which also matches when measured and calculated by the TW swing weight tool. I also tried with 1.25 grams and it was also very good but...

    if you love Head PT630, you may also like K7 Lime which I use extensively, it has a more plush feeling than TC97, depends on the feel preference. I was thinking of trying TC97 18x20 but Paul said if I have the Lime, its pretty close in structure (even the same grommets I think) and he said i...

    Yonex Vcore Pro 97

    Currently have full Technifiber X-one Biphase (strung at 47pounds), and provides plenty of power and comfort, but lacking some control and spin, so probably would be better to hybrid with poly in the crosses. My arm is too sensitive for poly even in the mains right now..

    Yes I also like the lower launch angle, especially coming from a 18x20. However, I didn't have such issues with 18x20 with a lower launch angle (but higher SW), so I think its more about the loop weight than the technique... what is your customization by the way?

    Yonex Vcore Pro 97

    I have recently started playing with VCP 310 coming from a 98inch 18x20 control oriented racket looking for more spin with stability and comfort, especially for my singles game. To be safe it is strung with a 16g multi at 47lbs, so plenty of power and comfort too. Customized with 1.5 grams at...

    YONEX EZone 98+ first look?

    I am also quite happy with the new Ezone 98 with some customization, so I dont think I will go for DR version, but will work on my strength and condition to be able to handle extended length for longer periods.. I also have an Angell Lime 98 which has a similar plush feeling and very stable, so...

    YONEX EZone 98+ first look?

    Thank you for your insights, really helpful. Yes I realized that with the extended version games are shorter, but I do get tired faster (especially now that its hot and very humid outside), even with additinal SW of only 10. But the feeling is addictive..

    YONEX EZone 98+ first look?

    I have rexently been playing with new EZONE 98 which i got theough a great deal, it played great especially on serves and groundstrokes. However, the extended version feeling is different, it is more muted, less crisp, and more comfortable. For me at least a much better feling, and nit too...

    Yonex EZONE (2018)

    mine is currently Yonex Rexis 16 Mult mains and Wilson Revolve Co-poly 17 crosses at 53/49... needed something comfortable and easy on the arm not knowing how it will feel. Also wanted to have it less spiny and more powerful/good feel for my flatter game. Maybe even will switch to NG mains in...

    Yonex EZONE (2018)

    totally agree, 1-2 grams at 10 & 2 makes it more stable too.. tried at 9&3 but did t like the way it felt on serves, made it less easy somehow...

    Yonex EZONE (2018)

    i would say they are similarly stable in stock form, K7s are very unique in that their composition which makes them flexible and stable.. for hard hitters may need some lead and this applies to Ezone 98 as well. I like the crisp feel of Ezone when playing aggresive game, and i think you cannot...
