    Vokyl Cyclone ?

    I guess buying that stringer would be the option to shoot for eh. Thanks for the advice! :)

    Vokyl Cyclone ?

    I currently use a Yonex Tour F 93 at around mid 40s tension with vokyl cyclone. The problem is that this string set up feels so amazing the first few sessions then feels like crap after that. I need to find a solution to this because I want to hit often with a great feeling string bed. First few...

    yonex tour f 93 vs yonex dr 98

    As for the ProKennex Redondo 98, I see that it's been released quite some time ago. I was using the wilson blade 98 since 2009 and I don't really want to go back to the older rackets. Once I stick with a racket, I want to be able to keep it for quite some time so I would like to be up to date...

    Best stringing machine?

    It'll be a permanent set up for me. The only factor in choosing which stringer I need is basically how much easier it is for me to string the racket and how hard it is to actually screw it up using said method. As for budget, as long as its within 5k it's totally something I can invest in...

    yonex tour f 93 vs yonex dr 98

    Hm.. I started out with a mid 50s tension for the yonex to test it out, but the feel wasn't just quite right for me. The lower I got, the better it felt, and then I hit the sweetspot of mid 40s. The problem there is that the tension only lasts for a few sessions.. I'm just thinking that if I get...

    yonex tour f 93 vs yonex dr 98

    I haven't tried the SV95. I saw the review on tennis warehouse, but after hearing Michelle saying that the volleying was a bit off, it turned me off quite a bit since I feel like I relate to Michelle's taste in rackets and stringing the most out of all the play testers. I might like the SV98...

    yonex tour f 93 vs yonex dr 98

    Way too heavy. After my experience with the rf97, theres no way I'm going that heavy ever again. My wrist will die on me. lol If I was okay with that weight, I wouldn't have switched to the yonex honestly. :P

    yonex tour f 93 vs yonex dr 98

    So the smaller frame is a bit less stiff eh. I might just demo the f97 when I get the chance to. I have my f93 strung with cyclone at 45 for the mains and 47 for the crosses. Idk why, but my stringer (who is also my hitting partner) recommended it for my style of play for some reason lol. This...

    I see. So there really isn't much harm done to the frame itself as well? I heard that once you break a string while playing, you should cut it all to even out the pressure. It made sense, but that's basically got me worried. The time it takes is not the issue for me, it's literally me not...

    Indoor Tennis Court in my backyard

    I was thinking more on the solid building side. I've played in a bubble before and I know it'll take way more money to maintain in the long run than just building a solid building in there. I was maybe even thinking combining the "tennis" building with the main "house". Anything is possible at...

    yonex tour f 93 vs yonex dr 98

    haha yeah maybe! I just feel like compared to the blade 98 I used for 7 years, the rf97 I used for 3 months, and the 6.1 95 I practiced with for a couple months, this is the smallest size I've gone down to and it just takes quite a bit more preparation for a shot than the other rackets.. I...

    yonex tour f 93 vs yonex dr 98

    My power is fine, but its the shots where I require a lot feel like drop shots, volleys, running forehands/backhands, etc., that is making me put extra effort that at the end of the day makes it a little frustrating. My performance with the tour f 93 is totally fine on paper, but it's just that...

    Best stringing machine?

    Thanks for the reply! When I said 2k, it was kind of a starting point of my budget. I am able to probably go to the 4-5k range if need be. I definitely agree that the technician has to be good for the product to shine. My worry is that as a beginner to stringing, I could potentially screw up...

    yonex tour f 93 vs yonex dr 98

    Hey guys! I am debating on switching to the yonex DR 98, but am pretty unsure if I really should. While I was using my rf97, I was testing out some potential rackets. I really liked the wilson 6.1 95, but chose the yonex tour f 93 last year because I wanted a smaller frame. I am a 4.5+...
