    Too much ESR -> Balls to the other side fence

    He filmed me and imagine that at guis frame as Fed https://4.bp.blogspot.com/-_BQyZNLTB1s/UR5l0t0TmGI/AAAAAAAAAcY/TOVyFdI46F4/s1600/B98+-+F006.jpg the racquet lags behind significantly more. Swinging towards the ball my hand remains in ESR so the racquet string bed is below the ball but with an...

    Too much ESR -> Balls to the other side fence

    Straight arm forehand. Maybe I am misusing the terms form a scientific point of view. In a nutshell I always thought it is best to try to generate ESR as the ISR will come as a by-product of the SSC. I ended up afer many years with tremendous elasticity in the shoulder and elbow joint such...

    Too much ESR -> Balls to the other side fence

    I recently started training with a former ATP player, now in his mid 50. Have a problem i want to fix. Hit the ball with too much power but mostly flat and very inconsistently. He had a look and said :” well you have only one major problem. Too much ESR, no or limited ISR and as such racquet...

    Technifibre Triax

    I want to thank Greg (g4driver) for introducing me to the Triax/Iso and Triax/Ghostwire. similar power to NG/irukandji or NG/lux Alu, more comfortable (plush, pocketing) and even better Control. i must admit i was reluctant at first to use such a thicker gauge (as i used 1.30 gut). I am happy...

    Technifibre Triax

    Your NG / Element last 20-30h and Triax breaks at 2h? this is very odd... I tried Triax 1.34 amd 1.38 with Isospeed cream and Ghostwire 16. Really happy with it. Used to play NG/ Irukandji and broke mains in 6h

    Fullbed ZX and tension

    I know about how difficult it is to string. I have a Gamma x-Els and it broke 70% of the time when I used the machine pre-stretching. When I pre-stretched it manually and stopped usiong teh machine's option, it breaks 20% of the time. The reason I think is the "jittering" of the machine's head...

    Fullbed ZX and tension

    For the experienced ones: if ZX as mains (fully pre stretched) resembles NG, would it worth trying to pair it with YPTA 4G soft Element ?

    Fullbed ZX and tension

    i have it in the pipeline to test xone/ypta and triax/ypta. I tried the ZX / Gamma tnt 2 but i coule not get used to the launch angle i also tried zx / cream (both fully pre stretched). Incredibly soft but also too powerful Strangely enough i have found full bed oF ZX ( fully pre stretched and...

    Fullbed ZX and tension

    Got GE from KEV/ZX as a result of the pronaiton on srves. Being playing with that for 6 yrs. I have started trying ZX/TNT 2 and yesterday I strung with ZX/Iso cream. By mistake the stringer instead of Iso control sent me ISo Cream. I played and it was quite nice I must say.

    Fullbed ZX and tension

    I have been playing lately due to pain (mild GE) with NG/poly at 26/24kg. Problem is i cut mains at 5-6 hrs max. As a former user of ZX I tried it fullbed at 26/25. Prestretched the life out of it and strung it. I used a winch to prestetch it so you get the idea. First 4 hours felt boardy at...
