    Cheapest reliable linear gripping Electronic Constant Pull Machines

    Babolat in general will support a machine for 10 years after they stopped making it. But this is Babolat in France. Youd have to speak to Josh at Babolat @Babolat Official to confirm what exactly is available in the USA. I would have no issue with buying a used Star 5, but at the right price...

    Thiem and Medvedevs Rackets

    Think of it more like adding 18g of weight to the hoop of the rqt

    Fake Babolat AeroPro Original?

    Things that fake babolat usually have/are - grip L2; 'warranty/swing tag' in Chineses, hologram sticker saying its genuine. Also check the weight of the racquet as normally they're under the spec weight; and balance is usually way off too, very HH if I recall correctly

    Starting crosses from bottom

    open the packet, wrap it aroud something solid, like a pole or door handle, walk back holding both ends, when youve got bck as far as you can, the mid point will be at the handle/pole etc. then just cut it there

    Starting crosses from bottom

    Don't measure when using a set; for most rqts just cut the string in 2 equal halves. If you get something with a big head then you may need to use a different method, but for now just cut it in 2. There are certain frames when stringing hybrids, such as Blade 104 where you need to cut the set...

    Starting crosses from bottom

    Was this from a set, or cut from a reel? If from a set then there is plenty to do 2 piece; and for a Clash 100 simply cut the set in half.

    Head pallets on a Babolat?

    Head pallets def wont fit, as I tried it on my 1st gen PS; but Volkl pallets do fit. Unfortunately, Volkl seemed to have stopped selling them

    Dan Evans: Racquet and Strings

    I believe he now has the handles molded by P1. They did the same thing for Robin Soderling & Sam Groth

    Dan Evans: Racquet and Strings

    My suspicion is that its still being made for Wilson; otherwise there would have been a huge amount made in the past. There are a lot of Wilson players still using the white packet gut ; and that inc players who string a lot i.e Fed, Kei, Serena

    It's the made in France stuff, not the made in Belgium stuff

    Dan Evans: Racquet and Strings

    Evans is sponsored by Wilson,and has an international contract. This allows him to get Wilson natural gut, and he's using the white packet (pro) gut, not the red packet (retail) gut. If he's paying, then it will be be far cheaper than retail.

    Rqt - nCode 6.1 18 x 20, String - Alu Rough / Wilson (white pkt) gut Tension - usually around 50lbs, but will adjust accordingly

    If it is the Load Cell, then finding a new one is very difficult as they stopped making them years ago. Again @abllee2198 may have further info as to availability
