    A good string for AeroPro Drive st. (5.0 baseliner)

    Wow. That was a long time ago. I have no recollection of the slipperiness, nor actually of the string itself. Also, I have no idea about the current Laserfibre strings, other than I heard the current Laserfibre is an entirely different company making strings that are different than the original...

    Alternatives to Gel Resolution 7

    The Court FF is not narrower than GR7, or at least that's my experience as I found the FF to be wider. I was a size 11 GR user from GR1 thru GR5. Starting with GR6 and continuing with GR7, size 11 became longer and narrower, so it no longer fit properly. I tried size 10.5, but it was too...

    *NEW* Poly/Poly Hybrid thread (reviews and recipes)

    I just played a couple of sets with 17ga Tier One Firewire Boost (Firewire/Ghostwire). Great combo of power, control, spin and comfort. I'm interested to see how long this level of playability lasts. I'm not a big string breaker, so if I can get 8 hrs near this level of playability before I...

    Poly Strings: How to decide? or Should you always try new strings?

    My limited 4+ hours experience with Technifibre Ice Code 17ga strung at 46lbs was good playability with so-so spin, however, my arm started feeling it in a negative way shortly after I started hitting with it so I proactively cut it out after the end of my second session with it before things...

    Rackets similar to the blx six one 95 16x18

    The most recent racket I've hit with that reminded me of the 6.1 95 16x18, which I played with for many years thru various generations, is the Prince Phantom Pro 93P (14x18). The head size is more like a 95 than a 93. Highly recommend giving it a hit.

    2019 Wilson Blade

    The good news is that I read somewhere that there will be/is a v7 98S, but the bad news is that it will only be sold in Europe. I hope I'm wrong ! Can anyone verify ?

    Does Nat Gut lose tension? Replace when frayed ?

    Wow. That is some seriously defective gut. Who makes it and what did you pay for it. I do recall many years ago playing with some low-end, more-or-less, no-name gut that didn't last long and had poor playability. I learned my lesson from that.

    Does Nat Gut lose tension? Replace when frayed ?

    My normal string setup for many years is Pacific Tough Gut 16g in the mains with Gosen Micro 16 syn gut in the crosses both at 60lb in a Wilson 6.1 95 16x18. I should note that I'm not a string breaker in general. For me, this setup holds its tension and maintains its playability for many...

    New Volkl String -massive spin

    Thanks for everyone's feedback on the V-Square. How does the V-Square compare to Cyclone Tour in terms of power/comfort/spin/tension maintenance?

    Anyone still using any of the Wilson Steam rackets ?

    Thanks for the photo. I checked some old images of her and she definitely used to play with the Steam. The Burn Spin Effect racket has 16 crosses, so I guess its likely she's now playing with a Steam with a Burn paint job as you suggested. Nice find !

    Anyone still using any of the Wilson Steam rackets ?

    Thanks for your interest, but no, I'm not planning on selling it right now. If I change my mind, I'll let you know.

    Does anyone know the status of the Wilson Ultra line of rackets going forward ?

    I noticed that the Wilson Ultra line of rackets, except for one, is on clearance. Does anyone know the status of the Wilson Ultra line of rackets going forward ? Are they being refreshed, discontinued or replaced with something new ? Also, anyone know if Wilson will have continue with a...

    Anyone still using any of the Wilson Steam rackets ?

    I was just wondering if anyone is still using any of the Wilson Steam rackets, which had a lot of Clash-like hype back around 2013, though maybe a little less hype than the Clash. Anyway, back around 2013, I bought both the Steam 99S and Steam 99 (non-S). I mainly tried playing with the 99S...
