    What are the rackets you carry in your bag?

    I used to have many different frames. I’d carry around 7 different frames and buying/selling on top of that, so these 7 frames were never the same. Then I realized how switching to a different frame all the time was screwing with my muscle memory. I now have 3 identical frames. Two have the same...

    2019 Wilson Blade

    A) in my experience gut/poly gives the best of both worlds. You get the power and feel of gut and the spin from the poly slickiness and snap back. B) full poly is great for control as the strings barely stretch at all. It is low powered so if you’re a big hitter you can take full swing without...

    2019 Wilson Blade

    It really does what cross poly strings are supposed to do, which is allow the mains to slide and snap back, not notch and add control to gut mains. I haven’t tried it in full bed with another poly but maybe I should. No reason why it wouldn’t do a great job.

    Klip $29. VS Tonic $36. VS Touch $42. Which to buy?

    I used to play with Klip good quality to $ ratio. But the last batch I bought it gathered humidity and started sticking sooner than Wilson/Babolat. So I now only buy Bab/Wilson/Lux whatever one is on sale during Black Friday (though I lately decided to just use Yonex PTP and restring every 4...

    All racquets have suddendly increased about $30! Why is this???

    Agreed. They were made in house back then too. That’s why production was moved to China so costs were kept in check. The sponsorships probably costs more than the actual frame. I would too like to know how much goes where in the price of a racquet. But all in all racquets are still quite cheap...

    The Ascent To The Throne Begins For Felix Auger Aliassime

    I watched the replay of the last set and got to admit Felix looked great in critical points. Hopefully he can carry this confidence all the way to the finals.

    The Ascent To The Throne Begins For Felix Auger Aliassime

    I haven’t seen the match. Good if his head was strong. I still believe it’s his biggest weakness. I think his young age and huge expectations placed on him are the culprit. Time will tell I guess.

    Yonex VCORE series 2018

    No but I’m curious about giving the C10 a try. Have you hit with hit? If you did, what was it like?

    The Ascent To The Throne Begins For Felix Auger Aliassime

    His head is his weakness. It was in the junior (the junior RolandGarros finals or the Challenger finals against Shapovalov) it was in the pros (the massive choke against Isner) and it still was against Monfils. He also is way too impatient as the high UE numbers indicate. Again this has a lot to...

    I’d have bought a lot more at that price!!! :)

    All racquets have suddendly increased about $30! Why is this???

    Ouch. Funny today I bought 10 cases of 18 cans of Penn for 400$. It might not be the best balls on the market, but at 2.22$/can it was too good to pass. :)

    All racquets have suddendly increased about $30! Why is this???

    When I started playing tennis 30+years ago, racquets were 200$. I bought a Head Genesis new for 250$. This was the most expensive racquet at the time. Now 30years later frames are still around 250$. Balls are still ~4$ a can. I can’t stop feeling that tennis prices were frozen in time for at...

    Yonex VCORE series 2018

    Wait a minute, there are VcorePro and VcorePro HD extended length!? Ok I looked it up and it’s custom made XL but thank you for the link. For a minute there I thought they had access to some unobtainable unicorn frames. I might try a platform XL frame. This site provides a whole lot of new...

    Yonex VCORE series 2018

    Anyone feels like the VCore98+ needs a bit more twistweight? I added 4 2in strip at 3 and 9 (total of 2g) and felt it was still lacking some. Added four more 2in stripes (double stack) and now the frame feels like it is much and the SW has got to a point I’m not liking it (probably close or...

    Yonex poly tour pro (PTP)

    PTP is now my main string in my VC98+. I string in the low 40s and it plays great. Awesome spin, power and very comfy. For me I lose the snap back after 3-4 hours and I just cut it. Reels are super cheap and I string myself, so every string job is about 6$. Can’t think of a better string for the...

    Pospisil still with Asics Solution Speed 3?

    That’s weird, if I had access to old Asics shoes I’d get myself the Speed 2. I believe it’s my favorite tennis shoe ever. I really don’t like the all rubber top material that started with the 3 and continued with the Speed FF.

    Nadal to chair umpire "You don't like the good tennis"

    Let’s not forget that without Nadal, we wouldn’t have a serve clock. It should be called the Nadal clock. Let’s not forget that Nadal also does this when receiving. Medvedev had at least 2 aces called back last year in Montreal (or US Open?) because Nadal wasn’t ready to receive. The rule is...

    RF97 about lighter?

    Did you do any tennis specific weight training? My kid is part of a development program for high potential players and they do gym training every day. Why not give it a go? To add to your list of frames to try, I second the Yonex extended frame suggestion. I play with Vcore 98+ and hit against...

    RF97 about lighter?

    Hit the gym for sure. This is my son, at 11yo he was swinging a 338sw frame. He’s now 13 and swings a Dr98+ at 343sw. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Matching rackets weight and balance

    Ok thank you. Makes sense to do it that way. I always try match SW weight and balance all at once. I did it with the racquet tune app but using math saves some time.

    Matching rackets weight and balance

    Good stuff. (y) But the SW could be quite different. How do you adjust for that?

    Best racket brand?

    Wilson has the worst QC ever. That anyone voted for Wilson suggests that you need to define Best. Because if Best includes quality control then Wilson is out and so is Babolat. So Best for what? Best paint? Best PJ? Best feel? Best quality? Best qulity/price? Best overall?

    Why did you switch to Yonex?

    I feel like I got more power and spin from my Yonex Dr+ (and now even more from my Vcore+) than I had with my Angells. My serve is definitely faster. Maybe the extra stiffness is what is helping. My Angells were not bad but my SW was in the 360 stock. I lost RHS at that swingweight. Frames were...

    Why did you switch to Yonex?

    Are your TC100 27,5”? I liked my Angells, but at my level I’ll take every free points I can get. My Yonex are better at that but the Angells felt pretty good.

    Can I still play with this racket?

    Frame looks cracked to me. Hard to tell how long before it breaks.

    Kyrgios racket spec.?

    Pro Tennis is entertainment. If you don’t like him don’t watch him. There are many players to choose from. Simple as that. I don’t patrol boards to complain about players I hate. But you hate Kyrgios yet go on threads that talk about him to spill your hate. Don’t you have anything better to do...
