    Babolat Pure Aero 2019

    So... After hitting one hour with the new PA Tour, here are my subjective thoughts. My leaded 2013 APD is 331 grams, 32.4 balance, 319 SW. As I mentioned above the weight and balance of my PA Tour demo are EXACTLY the same, except the SW was 329. I string really low. 43 lbs with Weiss Cannon...

    Babolat Pure Aero 2019

    On Thursday, I’m hitting with a2019 PA Tour that has the exact static weight and balance as my leaded 2013 APD. The swing weight is 10 pits heavier and I’m looking forward to trying it out. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    2019 PA Tour question for Chris

    Hi Chris, I’m wondering if you’ve hit with the PA Tour and wanted your impressions. My current 2013 APD is tail weighted to only 4 grams less than the tour, so I don’t think it will be a huge difference. If you have played with it, I’d especially to get your impressions about how it serves. (And...

    Tennis Warehouse Playtest: Wilson Clash

    I really like Weiss Cannon Ultra Cable 17L. Even softer Than the Tour Bite Soft with a ton of spin. I gradually lowered the tension in my 2013 APD and I now string @ 43lbs. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Shoes with great Heel Cushioning?

    My Court FFs are longer than my Nike Vapors, even though they are 1/2 size smaller. And they have more room in the toe box while totally locking in my heel. I almost went with the larger size because they both feel good on, but I’m very happy that I went down 1/2. For what it’s worth, I’ve also...

    best tennis bag - backpack style?

    I never had any zipper open, but I did have a zipper pull come off. I just put it back on and tightened the loop with needle nose pliers. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    best tennis bag - backpack style?

    I don’t own this. I just saw that frames can be stored at an angle when I watched Michelle’s TW video. I have a Wilson Countervail backpack, but I use my 20 year old Head bag in the rain. I’m in New York City and even just going from my apartment to the subway and out of the subway to an indoor...

    best tennis bag - backpack style?

    And for what it’s worth, the racquets can be stored at an angle, so the handles don’t hit you in the back of the helmet when biking to the courts. (As I do[emoji4]). Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Asics Shoes - Which Model?

    I’d suggest going down 1/2 size with the court FFs and get a shoehorn. That’s what worked for me. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Asics Shoes - Which Model?

    I love my SS 2s. (Clay version)... That being said, the Court FFs are by far, for me[emoji4], the best tennis shoes I’ve ever worn. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    why such SMALL grips?

    You'll get varying opinions on the forum about grip size that are all valid for each player. The trend has been towards smaller grips because they allow the wrist to generate more spin. (You'll get arguments about this also ). For me, I've gone down from 4 and 1/2 to 4 and 1/4 and much prefer...
