    *****THE OFFICIAL HEAD PRO TOUR 630/280 Club*************

    Recently I decided to give the Gravity Pro a try to see if that frame could be a good match for my game. It started very well and I thought for sure this was going to be my go to frame. After a few months I was playing a guy who hits a pretty heavy ball and endured a series of shots that...

    Your Gravity Pro string setup...

    Not sexy, but I’ve been using Prince synthetic gut original 16 at 55 lbs. Plays well for me and I can change it out at short intervals since it’s cheap.

    Head Gravity Pro - Best String Set-Ups

    I have a set of the new Tecnifibre HDMX 16 in my GPro right now. Good control and reasonable spin for a comfortable one piece hybrid string. I’m not a poly player and this string is a decent compromise.

    Is Medvedev the new Miloslav Mecir?

    I think Mecir was a smoother mover with a equally smooth strokes and great touch. Medvedev is not quite as smooth mover but covers tons of court along with having more power on his ground strokes and serve than Mecir did.

    US Open 2019 R1: Serena Williams vs Maria Sharapova

    That’s why she always beats Maria. Plays right into her strength which is slugging. Players who can vary their strategy would do better.

    CBS Sunday Morning Tennis Segment

    Just watched this. Definitely shows the harsh reality of life on the tour when you’re not one of the top players.

    What Does Maria Sharapova Have To Do To Beat Serena Williams At The US Open?

    Haha, the trouble with that strategy is that Serena will start grunting even louder and then we’ll have a shriek fest . Have to watch with volume off.

    Q+ tour Pro 315 vs Volkl C-10 Pro

    I have two Kennex 315’s and can say they are very good racquets. I used to use the C10 in the past but the current generation of them feel clunky and stiffer to me. The 315 hits over its weight due to the kinetic system, and you can always add lead or tungsten tape if desired. Right now I am...

    The new blade V7 May just be the best blade so far

    The comments about the new Blade having that PT630 feel seem to be a common trend recently. Same comments have been made about the Head Gravity Pro. I for one am happy that racquet manufacturers are finally providing some alternatives to the overly stiff frames they had been churning out.

    The new blade V7 May just be the best blade so far

    Being a 5/8 grip player I don’t like the fact that Wilson decided to only make grip sizes up through 1/2 available on the Blades. In fact the only recent Wilson frames I know that 5/8 are available are the RF97 and the Ultra Tour. Switched to a Gravity Pro recently and love it so far. It’s...

    Best non poly you've ever tried? Need advice

    I agree with some of the previous posts regarding Babolat Origin. It has much better comfort, feel and tension maintenance than synthetic gut but of course it is 4x the price. I put it on my main racquet and Prince synthetic gut original on my backup.

    The truth about racquet material innovation

    I read a while back that the Pure Drive actually came from a ProKennex design. PK is one of the few actual innovators out there that try to improve racquet technology without materials gimmick claims. They just have a very low profile as far as pros are concerned. Seppi is the only top player...

    The Volkl C 10 is evolving!

    I agree that the newer C10 Pros do not feel the same to me as older versions. A while back I had pair of 2008 C10's, mostly black cosmetic with yellow accents. They were heavy, but headlight, flexy and smooth. I tried a 2018 model and didn't like it. Of course I fully admit that also could...

    Tomic harder to explain than Kyrgios

    Tomic reminds me of watching Miloslav Mecir back in the day. But without the “big cat’s” movement and mental strength.
