    Recommended Racket for Aggressive Baseliner (Advanced)

    Head Extreme tour. I'm 4.5 ish in the UK (using USA system, it's different in the UK) It offers perfect the blend of spin and control. It's like a Radical mated with an Extreme.

    New to polys

    I'm a big of Head Lynx as a soft poly. Soft and slippery. Great as a main or a cross. Very affordable too

    Round Poly Recommendations (Crisp, predictable, 1.2 gauge or less)

    Head Lynx is fantastic. Very underrated. MSV Co focus too - 1.18

    Poly and volley

    I stopped using full poly for that very reason. I play a lot of 4.5 ish doubles (UK so different system). Switched to hybrid now, touch more feel

    What's a racquet that is between Clash 98 and Blade 98?

    Extreme Tour fits the bill. It's fantastic. I switched from Extreme MP to the tour. Really helped me. Still powerful enough, stacks of spin and a bit more control. I'm a 4.5 ish using the American rating system. I added a touch of weight at 3 and 9 for a bit of help on the first volley

    Offering value for money for customers

    Do you guys ever string Synthetic Gut 1.25mm for clients? Or is it not as good value for money as a 1.3mm synthetic gut? I always try to offer the best value/ longevity with synthetic gut. I'd welcome your thoughts. Cheers, Paul

    Unexpected benefit of larger grip size

    Recently increased my grip size from 2 to 3 on all of my rackets. And as well as improving my stroke, it has also increased the durability of my overgrips. Tourna Mega Tac used to shred (at the buttcap edge) in an hour with a smaller grip size. It now lasts 4 or five hours. I'm happy

    Head 360+ in MP - Speed or Radical

    I found the Speed more comfortable. Radical is jarring off centre. Probably due to the the 98 head size compared to the 100 of the speed

    Low powered and stable but good spin racquet

    I've switched to the Extreme Tour. It isn't super powerful I wouldn't say. Plays similar to a Radical ish
