    Yonex Precision

    5-6 is still going to leave you short on the top end yonex but would put you well in range of a Baiardo or Tecnifibre ergo. Then it becomes personal preference based. Having used both, I prefer the Baiardo. I like the height adjustability and have gotten used to the tilted table.

    Favorite Round Co-Poly?

    Agreed. I as incredibly surprised after using a prestrung demo when I strung it into my own racket that it was a round poly. Very spin friendly and easy to use.

    Favorite Round Co-Poly?

    Poly tour also has a slight texture to it that allows it to grab the ball. Not quite like a rough string but I find it plays more spin friendly than most just round strings.

    Yonex Precision

    If you're spending 5-6k for that yonex you're not getting a great deal on that machine. The other machines made in the same factory go for 3-3.5k. Head, Alpha, or Dunlop would be a better value. Same internals just different branding.

    cold weather setup

    This is entirely a personal tolerance question but I switch to a gut poly hybrid from a poly multi hybrid once the temps are going to consistently be below 50 Fahrenheit during play.

    Did the stringer make a mistake?

    While it is uncommon to string a hybrid tension as a one piece it can be done and does not effect play. The tension won’t disperse from the crosses and change anything. Having said that, I wouldn’t string a hybrid tension one piece unless specifically requested.

    Bad stringing job or it's normal?

    Just junky paint imo. I’ve seen it previously but mostly in rackets that see tons of use and tons of restrings. It happens over time from twisting of the racket.

    What would you do if the guy playing against you was averaging two retosses per each serve?

    Tell them it’s $45 an hour for lessons. We can work on their toss then. Otherwise get on with it.

    Dunlop help

    Hey folks, I’m not incredibly familiar with Dunlop’s lineup. I have a guy coming in this year that currently plays the Dunlop CV 3.0 Tour. Looks like this frame is last gen. What would be the newer version of this frame. Looks like the Dunlop naming structure changed marginally. Thanks.

    Methodology to become a better stringer

    I would have it to get the reps in. When I first started I worked at a pro shop and we had a box for half sets that were too short for whatever racket. I learned to string by using scraps and just doing it over and over again. I would also suggest if you have the availability of two rackets to...

    List Your Stringer; Its Best Attribute; Years Stringing

    Alpha Ghost Best Attribute is the mag brake I used it for 3 college seasons and a 25k. Been in storage for 3 years Baiardo Best Attribute the ergonomic features. My back used to go out once or twice during college season from the amount of stringing when using the ghost and before that Star...

    Methodology to become a better stringer

    I wouldn't even go with OG Sheep. I would order whatever the cheapest reel is on the entire site. A basic nylon will be good enough for practice.

    Head Lynx Strings - tension maint issues

    Hybrid it with a solid core slick syngut to give it some tension maintenance. With the full poly what you're experiencing is common.

    Hyper G Soft

    I actually feel like the soft held tension much better than Tour Bite soft.

    Returner going to the back fence and delaying after I caught the toss

    Sorry, Sarcasm didn't convey. I honestly can't remember the last time I caught a toss or didn't hit a "bad toss." Bad toss for me means I hit the ball anyway then complain about how I should have caught it.
