    Yonex QC

    Dang that 2nd one is pretty far off spec for Yonex. If it were me, I'd send it back. Every new Yonex racquet I've ever bought was within 2g of listed specs.

    How's the string movement in a full bed? One thing that always drives me crazy about full gut is when the strings move around a lot. I've heard the coating on Lux NG helps prevent that?

    If I were a big string breaker I'd probably do the same. It takes me a while to saw through the gut mains so I think it's worth it. The poly loses tension faster so I restring the crosses once every other string job. I also try to find the best deals I can on gut. Just got 3 packs of Luxilon gut...

    @CiscoPC600 I just don't like the feel of full poly. I've tried it several times, but always feel disconnected from the ball. Gut mains with poly crosses is how I have to roll.

    I'm a hybrid guy, so not sure if this will help. Right now I'm liking Klip Legend 17g mains @ 60 lbs and Yonex PTF crosses at 58 lbs. Its a little tight at first, but feels great after the initial break in period.

    Good to see the VCORE 95 getting some love. After adding some lead tape at 3 & 9 and replacing the grip I’m loving mine. Static weight now at 342g which feels about perfect to me.

    Which players give the most racquet claps?

    I've noticed Stan doing it a lot too. Win or lose the guy is a good sport.

    You guys are making me glad I bought 3 packs of Luxilon NG back when it was on sale. When my Klip/4g soft hybrid is done I’ll be trying it out.

    Oh ok I just noticed he only has a strip on 1 side of the grommets there. I usually put lead tape on both sides of the grommets which would double the weight.

    @1HBHfanatic If my math is correct that's about 10g of lead in the hoop? That's quite a bit of extra weight, but I might try something similar with shorter pieces. Thanks for the feedback!

    @aaron_h27 How's the string movement with a full bed of Lux gut? One of the main reasons I haven't gone back to full gut is because I hate straightening out strings all the time.

    I'm really starting to fall in love with my VCore 95. My only issue with it is some lack of stability at net. Anybody experimented with adding lead tape? I'm thinking a little a 3 & 9 but don't want to add too much swingweight.

    @aaron_h27 What tension did you string the full bed of Lux NG?

    2019 ATP Rotterdam Final - [WC] Stan Wawrinka vs. Gael Monfils

    Feeling happy for Monfils, but also sad for Stan right now. Hopefully making this final will be a big confidence boost for him though.

    Wilson QC Fails Yet Again, Despite Paying Extra For Matched Racquet Specs!

    Wilson could easily fix QC issues if they wanted to. But if people keep paying top dollar for bad QC they're never gonna fix it. There are plenty of things made in China with tight tolerances, but it costs more to do.
