    Golden set snake bite

    I have! I definitely prefer tour bite over hyper g though. Hyper G gets stuck (unlike tour bite where the string slides) and it gets annoyingly distracting. I just prefer to pop and spin i get with tour bite. I would actually prefer hyper G or tourbite over MP and snake bite. Only thing...

    Golden set snake bite

    Bad Reviews for new Adidas Barricade?

    We stopped wearing Barricades after 8. They just kept messing up and we kept going back to the 7s or the 5s. Those were the best IMO. Asics is honestly the best shoes that anyone can recommend. They're super hard to beat.

    Signum Pro Yellow Jacket vs X-perience

    Hi Richard, One of us is a sponsored player from Signum Pro but he's having trouble finding the right string. What's the most stiffest, spin friendly string that Signum Pro offers? His top choice is Solinco's tour bite and he's looking into trying Yellow Jacket or Poly Plasma Extreme a try...
