    Shoes are so good now.

    Compare to 30 years ago, maybe, but things are not looking good for someone with a wide feet. Gel Res no longer has wide version. Yonex, which used to be a brand that always produced wide fitting shoes, getting narrower every year. Tried many today's wide shoes, none of them fit nearly as well...

    I agree, even pure aero has a lower stiffness now.

    NB Freshfoam Lav ? Anyone have them? Thoughts?

    I think based on that reply you prob only need D width in Lav, I will need 2E. I can't really wear Gel Res 7 as they stopped making a wide version, Gel Res 6 wide was good but a bit lacking in cushioning.

    The gut/poly thread

    Follow up it, did want to cut it right away, so kept playing, now have about 12 hours on it, I found it compare to my usual setup it has less power, less control, less spin AND less feel. HOWEVER, it's the most comfort setup I have played with outside full bed Nat Gut, no idea the reason, but it...

    Physics 101. Rough strings can't give you more spin.

    OP is completely and utterly wrong. 1. It can also go slower than RHS, so there would be a difference. 2. String snap-back would allow spin to be faster than RHS.

    The Babolat Pure Strike Project Two Zero Thread

    Thanks for the information. So the reason you switching is mostly because of comfort and feel? In term of performance they are about the same?

    The Babolat Pure Strike Project Two Zero Thread

    Anyone actually switched from Project 17 to 3rd gen 16*19? Beacause after all the reviews, there is little information on how they compares.

    NB Freshfoam Lav ? Anyone have them? Thoughts?

    How does Lav's cushioning and width compare to SFX 3 and Sole Court Boost?

    The gut/poly thread

    I just strung up VS main and RPM blast cross, does not like this setup, IMHO the BT7 VS is too stiff for gut/poly, they are better in full beds. Higher power, more elastic guts are the way to go for gut/poly.

    Favourite hard court balls?

    So, are they the same ball? There were a few post on this board saying they play very different, and that made me opt to buy some old Penn ATP stock instead of the new Penn tour. But it now seems some are saying they are the exact same balls...

    Wider at the front of the shoe and narrower at the heel

    I think that's the cases for VAST majority of people with wide foot, you rarely if ever see people with errr wide heel?

    The Decline of Proper Cushioning

    That's like saying a $40000 car for anyone but a VERY RICH PERSON is insane.
