    Wide Feet Shoes Update - SFX, Hypercourt Express 2, Sonicage 2

    Anyone have tried the Asics GR8 Wide? I have tried Diadora Speed Blueshield 2 which has wider fit in size 12 and it fit my 11.5 3E foot perfectly. Diadora changed the width to medium on Speed Blueshield 3, but changed back to wider fit on Speed Blueshield 4.

    0.91mm Full size Heat Shrink Sleeve (trimmed) ( w digital caliper, newyorkstadium, 2020) This is quite thick. I reckon you only need 0,4mm increase on all 8 side of bevel to make it 1 size larger

    How to make grip larger but not rounder?

    I will use one or two layer of head guard tape, installed vertically on each bevel then use lighter grip like babolat lite grip. Or apply 0.2 - 0.3 mm pla plate (check it on google) on each bevel and use lighter grip with normal thickness (1.8 - 2mm). On my experience, you will need to add...

    Diadora Speed blushield fly 2

    I have both and feel that Fly 2 have wider fore foot, more support and stability. KSwiss HE feel lighter but upper is too pliable. I have size 12 and 13 kswiss. Size 12 feel tight and size 13 feel good width wise but too long.

    NEW 2019 Radical (May 16th) Release Date and (Some) Changes

    Somehow, i found that G360 Radical is quite a hidden gem. It has nice spec for modification, moderate MP size headsize (102sqi), low RA, and 16x19 patterns with 8 mains in throat. I customize one to match the G360 Speed MP spec and and it plays very nice.

    Ambitious beginner racquet

    How about starting from head size, weight, and beam width? 1. 98 to 104 sqi head size will be nice. Those head size help with forgiveness / miss hit since they have quite big sweet spot 2. Weight between 285 - 300, with swing weight between 315-320 strung or 275 - 285 unstrung. Too much swing...
