    Question About a "Second" evel of Older Play-testers

    I think your playtesters do an awesome job. I make many of my purchases from TW based upon their reviews of racquets. They are all very knowledgeable and relevant. I want to suggest something is missing though. I think you would do well to enlist a group of seasoned older players at the 4.0-5.0...

    Playtester Review Scores for 100Sq.In Frames.

    Hello T'dub: I place a great amount of street credibility on the TW reviews of tennis racquets. I rarely venture into uncharted (not TW Reviewed) waters. I'm currently in the market for a frame (100sq.in.) with good power and good control and preferrably with a RA under 68. The two scores I look...

    Babolat "Boost" Drive

    Hi T-dubbers: I recently hit with a friends new Babolat Pure Drive. In general terms I liked it. As I was hitting with it and blocking volleys, I thought to myself, wouldn't it be great if they made this same racquet in a 104-105" spec that matches the head size I currently play with. (Dunlop...

    Prince Beast 104 Europe No Ports

    Greetings TW Folks: I've been searching for a replacement for my Dunlop 300G 105. I saw on the website that Tennis Warehouse offers a Prince O3 Beast 104. I have used the O3 ports and do not care for the feel. I guess I could demo it to make sure I don't like it. Then, I discovered the Beast 104...

    Best Setup For Wilson Ultra Tour

    I'll be taking shipment of a brand new Wilson Ultra Tour tomorrow. I've read enough stuff on here to make my eyes bleed but I have yet to see a thread dedicated to the ultimate setup for this players frame. Fortunately I am a racquet stringer and know that the first string job should be...

    Can Mods Create the Perfect Racquet?

    I like racquets with soft flexes in the 60-63 RA range. RA and head size are two of a small handful of things that cannot be changed. Grip shape is another that can be modified but it's a pain. So, when you try to find a 100-102" frame with this range RA, you are very limited in choices, most of...

    Gut Kevlar Hybrid in OS

    I've searched several older posts here but have been unable to get a good answer. I play with an 105" Dunlop 300G with a tight 18x20 pattern. My favorite hybrid setup right now is Klip Legend 17 (double coated) with a smooth poly in the crosses. I string the gut mains at 66lbs and string the...

    Volkl V-Sense 7

    I'm seeking anyone who has had any experience with this newest Volkl. I hit the demo with multi last night and was frankly blown away. I currently use a very flexi Dunlop 300G OS (105") which plays much stiffer than its stated RA. I've tried previous iterations of this frame and they felt...

    Can we get a "cotton" filter in Clothing search?

    Hi TW: I'm a fan of cotton or cotton-blend mens tennis clothing and socks. I don't live in a particularly hot or humid environment here in California. I recently found the Le Coq Sportif 100%cotton mens shorts and LOVE THEM. Now I want to add to my tennis wardrobe with more cotton and get rid...

    63yo senior doubles player. USTA 4.0 League player. I currently play with a Dunlop 300G 05 which translated means 105 sq. in. I cut it down to 27in. The stiffness (RA) is an arm friendly 57. String pattern is 18x20. I have them (4) heavily modified with silicone in the handle and some tungsten...
