    I have two Boris Becker Delta Core London rackets for sale. Both are 4 3/8 grips, and both are strung with hybrid poly/synthetic strings in the mid 50's. The rackets were played with a few months, and are in good used played condition. I would rate them as 7.5/8.0. Just normal signs of play...

    Question for users of Isospeed Cream - tension?

    I play the Yonex Ezone DR 98 and have ordered some Isospeed Cream after reading about it's positive elements. I would like to know what those of you that play Cream string it at, compared to a standard poly? I assume I may need to string it a few pounds tighter than I am stringing a more...

    Pro Kennex Tournament Classic and Targa 90, Actually 98 Head Size?

    I picked up 4 classic frames at Goodwill Saturday. Two were Pro Kennex models with the exact same head size and frame dimensions. One was a Tournament Classic, and one was a Targa 90. The Targa 90 says it is a 90 inch frame, but both look to be 98 inches. I held it next to my Yonex 98 inch Ezone...

    Yonex Ezone DR 98 Tension / Dampener Question

    Just switched to the Yonex Ezone DR 98 frame a little over a week ago and am seeking string tension / dampener feedback from those playing the frame. Came from the Pacific X-Feel 95 frame which is a lower power flexible frame. Have always played the Pacific strung with a hybrid poly main /...

    I have for sale an Avery M3 Power 95 frame in 4 1/2 grip. Length is 27 inches, flex is 65, strung weight is approximately 12.5 ounces.

    Tension Difference Between Stringway ML90 and Klippermate Table Top?

    I just picked up a used Stringway ML90 drop weight stringer with the fixed clamp system. I've been using a Klippermate basic model for 25 years of more, with the double flying clamps. I've strung the same racket twice with the Stringway machine, and both times have resulted in a much tighter...

    Stringway stringer tension adjustment?

    Just got a Stringway table top stringer with fixed clamps through an estate sale. Think it might be a ML100 from pictures. I am a long time stringer with a Klippermate. Mine has a scale on the drop weight bar so you can set the weight at the tension you need. The Stringway stringer has no type...

    Pacific X-Feel 95 Users - How Do You Weight Your Frames?

    Okay, this is a very specific question for a very small group of players. I've played the Pacific X-Feel 95 frame for the past few years. I had always added 2 strips of 4 inch lead tape on each side of the frame at 9 and 3, total of 4 strips of 4 inch lead tape. I then added a wrap a tournagrip...

    Very strange situation.... I'm a high end 4.5 male senior player, still hitting the ball hard, played college tennis, former top 25 national senior ranking, etc. I've been playing the Pacific X-Feel Pro 95 for about 2.5 years. Groundstrokes are probably better than they have ever been... I...

    New Spin Rackets - Better with Non-Poly?

    Has anyone had any experience with versions of the new open pattern spin rackets, and if they may actually play well with a non-poly synthetic or multi? Got a demo of the Wilson Six.One 95 spin, but am waiting for the weather to clear to have a chance to try it. Actually it is for my son, who is...

    Balls that add to arm problems

    Everyone focuses on racket stiffness and poly strings causing arm problems, which is very true. Has anyone else noticed that some types of balls can be tough on someone with elbow or wrist problems? I deal with both, so it is always a balancing act to not create too much damage. I just about...

    Adding Weight - Other Factors

    I'm just getting into early efforts to adjust the weight of a frame. Trying to take a Head Radical Team 102, which is said to be 10.4 ounces strung, and add weight and stability to make it more of a players frame, without getting too much power. Right now I've got 8 grams total of lead tape at 3...

    Pure Drive Bumper Guard / Grommets?

    My 16 year old son switched to the new model (black) standard Pure Drive a couple of months ago. He has a really bad habit of banging the frame on the ground after a bad point, and yesterday in a match he had pieces of the flimsy bumper guard loose and hanging off the frame. My question: is the...

    Hybrid Poly/Low Tension Kevlar?

    Has anyone tried a hybrid of poly and very low tension kevlar? A few years ago I was using a full bed of 18g kevlar, strung in the mid 50's. I played well with it, but it had absolutely zero power. Got away from it. Am now using poly mains at 54, and multi crosses at 57. Over the winter for the...

    Junior Tennis - Limited Practice Partners

    First time to post in the junior forum, so forgive me if this has been discussed in the past. I've got a 16 year old son who is a solid, but not great open junior tournament player. He only started at 14, so his game is still developing. I'm a former college player who still plays well, having...

    Volkl Power Bridge 7 - String Suggestions

    My 15 year old son plays the Volkl PB 7. I have been playing the Becker London, and string my son's PB 7's with the same set up I use. This is Volkl V-pro poly in the mains, and a multi in the crosses. I've tried my son's PB 7's a few times, but they felt a little more harsh than the London, and...

    Recommended tension for softer co-poly's

    Soft Poly Suggestions?

    Anyone using a poly that you were recommend that is on the softer/comfortable end of the spectrum (for a poly anyway)? My arm absolutely does not handle poly very well, but I sure love ripping groundstrokes and having them stay in the court. I've tried several polys and am currently hitting a...
