    where I can buy pallets ?

    You can’t put Head pallet on Babolat racquet, at least not easy. Hairpin on Babolats is bigger so, L2 grip is impossible. L3 is on the edge. L4 is fine, because you have enough room to mod the pallet to fit.

    Racquet grip resizers

    Hmm, don't know that such things exist. You can only fabricate something yourself, but I think there are better solutions if you are willing to do some mods. For me, best and easiest for now is to use Head pallet. There are TK82 standard and TK82S rounded, so options are there. Remove all foam...

    Pure Strike Tour 3rd gen

    I still have to demo new Strike in my setup, didn’t have time to tinker with racquet this year … Tested one very briefly but only in stock form and that was it. Too short for any conclusions expect that feels bit different and definitely more muted but not bad. Was thinking about trying the...

    Advice on picking a Head frame

    Gravity Tour is my recommendation, really nice package of everything, great racquet. Weight give you nice room for customization, if you need it, like more headlight balance etc.

    Babolat losing ground?

    True, true... :) That is designer department fault, not marketing :)

    Head Lynx Tour - Official Thread

    Sorry, compared it to Hyper G because I wanted to test them side by side. I only compare strings when they are on the two same racquets and with same tension, and now Hyper G and Lynx Tour are “on the menu”. :) They are definitely not the same, but similar enough… like most co-poly shaped...

    Babolat losing ground?

    A “Bad” thing is also, Babolat has best marketing in the business. They have just “3 racquets colors”. If you want to be Rafa, buy yellow. If you want to be Thiem, buy white. If you want to be cool Italian dude, buy blue. All “colors” are pretty different from each odder, and at the first...

    Head Lynx Tour - Official Thread

    Testing two setups: Lynx in crosses, Lynx Tour and Hyper G in the mains. Of the stringer, Lynx Tour felt bit stiffer then Hyper G. Spin and feel was better with Hyper G, so continued playing with that setup. After Hyper G broke, got back to the racquet with Lynx Tour in the mains. It has been...

    Pure Strike 98 +

    No, I don’t. I can just describe what you can do. Remove the base grip and butt cap. Butt cap is long enough that can accommodate a bit of extra length. So, use some stronger duck tape and make 1 or 2 circles around the handle. Butt cap has some ridges inside and when you press it hard, it will...

    Babolat losing ground?

    It would be nice, since the Aero and Drive are one of the worst things that happened to tennis in last 20 years, but I doubt it... Surprise, surprise, its all about money. When company invest more in junior sponsorship, they have more young players on tour, that is pretty simple. But those...

    Pure Strike 98 +

    You can do it if you want to customize. For some reason Babolat make them bit shorter than 27”, so I extended all to 27”. Made one bit longer (27 and ¼ - 69cm) for testing purposes. It’s easily done and it’s reversible if you don’t like it.
