    Team Black Bear Tennis is official!

    @Black Bear Tennis Official My strongest 4.5 client gets 8 hours from 1.19mm @ 54lbs in his Yonex 97 305 gram. Starting in on my 2nd reel. He made the switch from Black Widow as Bear Claw feels better on his arm & the consistent control is just what he has been searching for.

    New Prince Racquets (again)

    @gino Prince's Beast marketing program with the green cateye, predates them, granted it was just for the string.

    Q for Troy: Prince Phantoms...

    @2nd Serve Ace Of course you are correct. I edited it to say heavier, which is what supports the rest of my post. Thank you.

    Regarding Yonex Stringing Methods.

    @tennisbike USRSA recommended we follow Yonex rule for the lower tension in 1987 when I asked Jill Workman & John Bourdman at the Philadelphia Certified Stringer testing session. So at least since the R-22 as for model.

    Is Wilson Blade the most used frame on tour?

    @jarko111 My take on the matter The Brand's rights in the US was sold to management company that did not understand the tennis market. They were expecting a big name to drive sales. The grass roots teaching pro in the US had driven sales since the brands launch IMHO. Prince Japan is a...

    @vsbabolat @BorgCash The double V is a gut company from the era. French I believe. I remember it sounding like "Vila Vitch"

    Which strings are these? Can you help me identify them?

    Head MXG 1

    Well all of the MxG line are on clearance @ TW. A rather quick hook even by today's standards. Perhaps they will release a CAP version after this generation is cleared out. The one pictured on the machine in this thread, seemed to only have 16 mains. I only saw a couple of the Sr players at...

    Kohlschreiber is using the RF97 black and white

    @Virginia Oh but they are players endorsing this pj. Several of the women have the Tuxedo over whatever they actually use.

    Kohlschreiber is using the RF97 black and white

    @Virginia He gets the frame he has been using, just with the current paint job. Otherwise, he might have to pay for his frames, if he could find them. Why I dare to say if HEAD would release the PT 57 A, made in Austria with a MxG pj, @vsbabolat might even give it his blessing after a proper...
