    Gravity Tour v Extreme Tour v Speed MP

    98 versus 100. So really not a massive reduction. I find sweetspot is a little less important on spin heavy racquets.(or I am just well dialed in with it) The ET felt string sensitive. It also always felt like it was just one more tweak away from true greatness. In the end I preferred most of...

    Gravity Tour v Extreme Tour v Speed MP

    Hard part for me is guessing which direction your game will end up:) Lots of growth between 4.0 and 5.0. All of the racquets I really like just a mater of which helps you play your best:) Nothing wrong with someone picking the options I didn't pick:)

    Gravity Tour v Extreme Tour v Speed MP

    Rough finding the perfect racquet for everything. I ended up with two...Speed MP and Gravity Pro. Radical Pro/MP would be in the middle, but the sweet spot is a little tight which might cause issues. I had to actually add some pauses before my swing the Radical MP was so fast. Pro I did not...

    How to get used to US Open balls (coming from Penn Championship XD)

    Both would help but the problem I feel it the OP did not expect to face Wilson Open Balls and it was a game day call. They could have a second racquet strung just for Wilson Balls, but I feel they would still need to learn to attack the ball a little earlier.

    Gravity Tour v Extreme Tour v Speed MP

    Extreme Tour you either need a little weight or great timing/swing to play against the heaviest hitters. It prefers heavy spin, but will hit flat. Reasonable sweet-spot. It should be ok against most fours but fives you might have trouble if you don't attack early and have a good swing.

    How to get used to US Open balls (coming from Penn Championship XD)

    One of the reasons to rotate which balls you use versus being attached to only one ball type/brand. Short answer buy a case and learn to play with them. They are a popular ball and Wilson Open fans(normally) dislike playing with anything else. They are very lively for about the first set, then...

    High swing weight players

    It really depends on how you swing the racquet. If you are whipping it around the SW might be an issue. If you let the racquet do the work and have a nice flowing stroke... I never find it problematic. Normally play 4-5 times a week for 3 hours at a go.

    Wide toe box

    I am a little old school that way...Grass was always my favorite. Clay is fun to visit as it is so different. Hard Courts are easily available:)

    Wide toe box

    I often write off Nike. Early on I found all of their shoes so narrow. Good to hear they have a wider range of offerings. Manufactures should listed measurements.(they know them) Shoe size leaves toooo many variables. Think of how much easier it would be to find a new shoe. Problem is it would...

    Men's Wide (2E) Shoe Options

    Sounds horrible. Are you sure you are just a 2e?:) Worthwhile get remeasured occasionally. Feet do seem to keep growing.
