    Wilson: same racquets, different recommended string tensions.

    I own 2 Wilson Ultra 100 (v3). Identical I pressume. However I noticed they have 2 different recommended string tensions. One has the recommended range 50-60 lb, the other 47-57 lb. See attached pictures. What is this? Never came across something like this.

    The Fischer Faction!

    I got 2 sets of Fischer grip shells (4 1/2) for M Pro 98. Got them from Pacific last year but don't need them anymore. Not new but in good condition of course. For shipping costs only I'll send them to anyone in Europe.

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

    Does it have modern grommets which allow for additional string movement at 3 and 9 o’clock? That would turn it into a 95/94 square inch frame. Reminds me of the Fischer M Comp 95, specwise that one comes close to this one.

    any tips on how to get higher rpm's on forehand?

    Drop your racket before hitting the ball, this way you will get, after the drop, a down-to-top movement for free which will give you the spin. Coaches telling you you have to brush up the ball are bad coaches, yes you have to brush up the ball but they forget to tell you to drop your racket...

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

    If I can say something, '330 gm' is the incorrect abbreviation for gram, it is '330 g' or just '330 gram'.

    "Your kid is good, he needs a control frame"

    Some story from long time ago. As a kid in the early nineties I played tennis and reached a good level. Not top of the country but good enough to compete against good kids from other clubs in the area. One day I needed a new racket. Rucanor (a B-brand) had a line of 3: a grey one with a purple...
