    Good luck. I hope they are meet your requirements.

    Yonex Fusion Rev 3

    I’ve now worn these Fusion Rev 3 shoes a fair bit. They are comfortable in the toe box for my wide foot, sturdy and supportive. However, after several hours of playing I’m getting pain on the outside of my left foot. These shoes do seem narrow in the mid foot area. That might be a problem for...

    "must have" for each type of string

    Laserfibre Supreme 2 is the nicest multifilament I’ve tried for a while.

    I do get the same size in SFX and they do feel slightly wider in the toe box. They are also wider in the heel area. In fact I can wear them with thick socks and ankle braces. They are perhaps too loose in the heel for me.

    Yes, I wear the same size. I'd say both about the same for width and length. Maybe the Yonex is very slightly wider but it's hardly noticeable and I might be wrong. I put some Superfeet Carbon insoles into the Fusion Revs and they feel great on my feet. Having said that, see my comment above...

    I'm not familiar with those shoes. The SFX is certainly the most unstable on the 3 shoes I now have. The Yonex is pretty good though.

    I played for 3 hours today in the new Yonex Fusion Rev 3. Two sets of singles and 2 of doubles. THE GOOD NEWS: 1. No blisters (yippee!). I was worried but it worked out OK. In fact the shoes were a confortable fit in the toebox and got more comfortable the more I played. 2. They were light...

    That's pity. It's annoying when a shoe you have depended on gets discontinued.

    Here is a picture of the heel of the Adizero Defiant Bounce. It has a kind of bulbous base. Maybe that helps the shoes not to roll over. The Babolat and Yonex Heels are below for contrast. I'm not sure if this is significant but the Adizero has least support but feels most stable and least...

    I'm obviously not a shoe expert but it's not as if the bootie construction actually gives support to the ankle like an ankle brace does. However, the Yonex shoe definitely has less space in the heel area than, say, the Babolat SFX so there is less movement there. For me the stability has more to...

    Yonex Fusion Rev 3

    Reading between the lines on the Yonex website, I think you can assume that the Eclipsion2 is intended to have more support than the Fusion Rev because Yonex marketing says the Eclipsion2 is "especially for tour competitors" whereas the Fusion Rev would suit "avid club players". I am an avid...

    I tried some Vapour X on in a shop but they were too narrow for my feet. It was a struggle to get them on and when I did they pinched just about everywhere. So these are a bit wider fit – but snug.

    OK but I may not be as rapid or violent as you might be. I'll let you know after Friday. I've never worn Eclipsion 2.
