    In praise of Kevlar/ZX hybrid!!!

    What are you using for tensions these days? I come and go away from the Kev/zx all the time. I'm thinking of trying it again in my 315ltds. Have a reel of 17 kev and some packs of zx lying around.

    Yup. PITA to tie off without snapping

    Adidas Ubersonic 4 Thread

    I think they meant that the cushioning in the heel is plush as you walk from heel to toe. But overall, it's a firm and stable, low to the ground cushioning.

    What Whisky Are You Drinking?

    Haven't tried that one but their "Rare Breed" is phenomenal.

    Adidas Ubersonic 4 Thread

    Interesting. I wasn't aware of lightstrike. My favorite tennis for comfort were the adidas crazy light boost (lowtop bb shoe). It had full length boost and they never wore out (on clay.) The cushioning always stayed plush and responsive.

    Still no full length boost midsole. Could have been amazing

    PRINCE GRAPHITE OS 107 MICHAEL CHANG 50TH ANNIVERSARY

    The OS was very light and low swingweight. The Mid was close to mid 11 oz strung with a SW arround 350-360

    Puncture marks are visible on both Rafa's knees

    That'd be one huge needle! Look at the size of those marks.

    Nike Zoom GP Turbo official thread.

    It's possible but if they are true custom orthotics, you can have them make them thin under the toes. Most orthotics focus on the arch. The shoes are so "cushiony" that you easily wear them without the stock foam insole.....which is reasonably thick, btw.

    Very comfy tennis shoes. To me, the toe box isn't narrow or small. Those areas are fine.... It's that there isn't a lot of room vertically for your toes. Not sure if that makes sense. The distance between the insole and the top of the shoe is short. I find that I don't have much room to...

    How can a racquet be good at slice but not topspin?

    You really have to change your technique for penetrating slices depending on the openness of your string bed. Every once in awhile, I'll pull out one of my old Michael Chang Princes. (95 sqin. 14x18) Using the same technique that I use with my 16x19 tecnifibres does not result in the same...

    How can a racquet be good at slice but not topspin?

    Have you ever seen Dolgopolov's backhand slice? I've never seen or heard anything like it. the ball whistles like a wiffle ball coming off his strings. It's nuts!

    How can a racquet be good at slice but not topspin?

    Great "slicing" racquets tend to produce a low bouncing "drive" type of slice shot. Meaning... you can hit a slice shot with a very flat trajectory, enough backspin so that it bites and skids off the ground and stays low on the bounce. These tend to be 18x20 patterned racquets. Open patterned...

    Ask the Racquet Designers of the New Tecnifibre TFight RS Racquets Questions!

    I really hope you consider bringing back the 315 Ltd frames. They are a fantastic platform racquet for customizing! I own 3 of them that have all been extended 1/2", pallets changed to the wilson shape.... they are all matched in weight balance, and swingweight. I even have added the...

    Milos Raonic is an example sportsman and a hardworking individual

    I agree. I can't say why though. There's just something unusual about him....in a creepy serial killer kind of manner. I see him like "Private Pyle" from Full Metal Jacket.
