    Tour Bite advice

    For me, TB always plays better at lower tensions. It's low powered and firm enough that it doesn't get mushy feeling. In my DR98 I went from Hyper G 16L @ 54 to TB 16L at 52 to now playing TB 17 at 47. Loads of spin, better pop than tension in the 50s and easier on my arm. I used 16L bc I broke...

    Tennis Warehouse: Wilson Rush Pro 3.0 Playtest

    Look forward to reading everyone's feedback. I dig the green/black w/ gum sole version that Ugo Humbert is rocking in Miami this week.

    Official Wilson Clash thread

    The 98 is listed in the SS19 Wilson catalog online. 310g unstrung, 30.6mm / 11pts HL balance and a slightly thinner beam (24mm vs 24.5 on the 100). It is the only 98 in the catalog but there is also a Clash 100L and 108. It was also odd to me that the matching Clash line of bags in the catalog...

    Tennis Warehouse: Dunlop ATP Ball Playtest!

    ATP ball is not the same as AO. They use different cores but have the same cloth.

    New Prince Racquets (again)

    Just another collaboration with a fashion brand like they've done w/ Boast and Publish recently. Not sure which model it'll actually be under the paint but I doubt it'll be anything actually new racquet-wise

    Dunlop New ATP Balls

    Played with the ATP XD last night for the first time after being sent a case. Solid ball. Feels good on contact. Seems a little light but plays well. After 1.5 hours of singles they look way worse than they play. The felt fluffs up pretty quick but neither me or my friend thought they lost any...

    Shapovalov's GOAT show colorway at Indian Wells.

    It's a custom Toronto Raptors PE. The overall style of flyknit or whatever it is will be out at some point but that colorway is a PE w/ the Raptors logo on the tongue.

    Nadal is testing a new shoe at IW?

    Tough to tell for sure, but it kinda looks like the shoe a couple friends of mine who are Nike playtesters have been using the last month or 2.

    Dunlop ATP Extra Duty

    ATP or the ATP Championship ball? Their naming for the new balls is stupid IMO. ATP Championship is the cheaper ball that I think is just their existing hard court ball with the ATP logo on it. My Walmarts definitely won't be carrying the the premium level ATP ball.

    Changing Speed MPA grommets from 16x16 to 16x19

    Yes the arrows point up. I sold all mine awhile ago now but IIRC those side grommets have a little tab that is meant to fit under the end of the top bumper which is probably what the arrow is meant to help indicate

    Dunlop ATP Extra Duty

    That's funny. I would rather play with Marathon XD any day over Wilson US Open (the 2 most common options in my neck of the woods)

    Dunlop ATP Extra Duty

    Just curious if you guys have used the Dunlop ATP Extra Duty ball (the new premium one) and how you might compare it to Pro Penn Marathon XD. Also, the ATP is different from the AO ball right? from the description on TW it sounds like they use different cores but the same cloth. Thanks!
