    Self-feeding ground stroke drill, why my shot lacks power?

    I'm reminded of a group coaching session when someone asked the coach, " I want to be able to hit the ball harder", to which the coach with a deadpan face replied, " Well, hit the ball harder then ".

    Tecnifibre Official - Racquets

    Have to agree with the 'giant pocket/swimming pool'. Really like the rackpack idea, just needs a small outside pocket for keys etc. and perhaps two zipped compartments instead of one so that you don't open the whole thing each time

    I've read an awful lot of this thread and am keen to spend some £. However given that you can't demo, I need to make a reasonably informed decision as to what to buy. Been using a Yonex Ai Ezone 100-> DR 100 (didn't like the new Ezone) , decided to try some new racquets and really loved the...
