    Your favorite Head string

    Velocity also good but I prefer Laserfibre Supreme 2 as a multi.

    Your favorite Head string

    Lynx. Good in a full bed or as a cross string for multi mains. For me it is just as comfortable as Isospeed Cream - a much praised ‘comfortable’ poly. I use the green version.

    Kimony Original Leather Grip

    Stringer’s world are good. I live in the U.K. and get lots of stuff from them. On the subject of the Kimonay Original Leather Grip, The black version seems a lot stiffer and less supple. Quite hard to put on. The tan version was perfect for me: nicely bevelled, soft and supple but not too...

    How to stop blisters and bruises?

    Whereabouts on your feet do you get the blisters? Are your problems on both feet equally or on one more than the other?

    Which finger tape?

    Search online for Golfer’s grip tape. The nice thing is you can tear it with your fingers. The only thing I find about taping your fingers is that this tends to rip holes in over-grips pretty quickly. I now use them with just a leather grip and no overgrip. I wouldn’t use them at all but the...

    Hybrid Head RIP Control/Head Lynx armfriendly???

    Ah, OK, sorry I misunderstood. However, one option might be to hybrid multi mains and Lynx crosses. Softer than a full bed of Lynx. Good luck finding the right string(s) for you.

    Hybrid Head RIP Control/Head Lynx armfriendly???

    RIP control is a multi filament string is it not? https://www.tennis-warehouse.com/Head_RIP_Control_16_String/descpageACHEAD-RCON16.html

    Hybrid Head RIP Control/Head Lynx armfriendly???

    Most multis would be arm friendly. I play with Laserfibre Supreme 2 (1.25) in the mains and Lynx (1.25) in the crosses. My racket is 97 sq inches 16 by 19. The tension is 53/49. It’s very comfortable for me. I choose Laserfibre over other multis I’ve tried with Lynx including: Head Velocity...

    Struggling with Moonballers...

    Do what you feel confident doing. Don’t try to hit shots you can’t really make consistently just because “that’s the way to beat moonballers.” Keep good form on your shots and keep moving your opponent around even if it’s only a few feet here and there. Keep your cool on balls you know you...

    Wilson Triniti Tennis Ball

    I just bought three tubes but haven't had the chance to play with them yet. I did notice some little lumps around the seams on over half of the new balls as if the gatheing of the felt was not quite right. Has anyone else noticed this? I'm wondering if it will affect the consistency of the...

    Haven't played for years till now - Need help in finding a new player's racquet

    I haven’t tried that one. Better in what sense? Tried most of the Phantom range: 100, 93p (18x16) and pro 100p. Not the pro 100

    Haven't played for years till now - Need help in finding a new player's racquet

    Prince Phantom Pro 100p is a nice compromise. Good control considering it is 18x16, comfortable with a wide range of strings. More forgiving 100 headsize than a 93p but still with the same lovely-to-hold thin box beam. Just a really nice racket to use. Worth a try. 59 stiffness rating but has...

    Head Lynx: any difference between yellow and green versions?

    I’ve used the green one but not the yellow so I can’t compare. However, I really like the green one I use and haven’t noticed a particular problem with tension maintenance compared to other softish poly strings I’ve used such as cream and Yonex PTP. I’d say give it a try and see what you think...
