    Anyone have any experience with these Babolat Pure Control Team+? Managed to pick these 2 up the other day, never used extended length before.

    Live by the Blade...Die by the Blade...

    I found hyper g 17 to work perfectly perfectly with this frame. Probably the best string for any 18 x 20 pattern in my opinion. I would recommend not using a shock absorber to have more feel and feedback. Still extremely comfortable, and I have a history of shoulder issues.

    New Racquet Recommendation from 2015 Blade 98 user

    I used the blade 2015 with leather for years, and still go back to it occasionally but always end up missing something on serves. Now using Tecnifibre 315 dcs3 with lots of lead. Would say it's a mid point between pure drive and blade. Feel is rubbish compared but results are more important...

    Tecnifibre Official - Racquets

    I'm using the T Fight 315 (same model year as your picture), and considering about changing strings, so would really appreciate the feedback! Or about any other string for that matter. String pattern is very open so needs to be durable. Will drop you a PM now. Cheers!

    Tecnifibre Official - Racquets

    Where did you get the new stencil from? Looks great! Any feedback on ice code? Currently use YPTP, but feels slightly mushy.

    Yonex players - what are you using?

    Increase in weight, more headlight balance. Better feel of bevels, although an individual preference. Feels much more solid. Serves were improved so much, as I felt they were not great serving rackets in stock form. Of course, an increase in weight and more headlight balance might be worse for...

    Yonex players - what are you using?

    Xi seems more powerful on serves and crisper feeling. Ai feels more muted and control orientated. But in reality both very very similar, powerful and spin friendly rackets. Both very comfortable and user friendly. Xi is currently getting more game time however. Good rackets in stock form...

    Yonex players - what are you using?

    2x Xi98 2x Ai98 All have leather grips. Deciding which string to use, PTP 1.25 or Tour Bite 1.30.

    Yonex Ai 98: tell me more about her

    Got my leather grips on the way, will be using white Yonex SuperGrap over them. Hopefully this will improve the feel of the string bed, as it is too muted whilst using Poly Tour Pro 1.25 currently. Any string recommendations? Looking for a bit more spin on serves, hopefully the more headlight...

    Yonex Ai 98: tell me more about her

    Ok great thanks for the advice! Will be adding a normal leather grip, are there any you recommend? And mike, how much weight did you add at 3 and 9 in total? Thanks again.

    Yonex Ai 98: tell me more about her

    Has anyone added a leather grip to this frame? And what was the outcome? Was lead needed in the head to counter balance? Or did it just play better more headlight? Thanks

    I got it from tennis nuts. Not sure why it is not listed elsewhere, not even on the official Wilson website as far as I can see.

    Kygrios stringing at an astounding 121.25 pounds!

    Does anyone know if he is still using the XI 98 under the paint job? Also if he has any weight added anywhere? Thanks

    Swingweight

    Thanks I will definitely take this into consideration, luckily I have matching frames so will have a reference point and feel. Looking forward to it.. hoping I see a positive change for such a small amount of lead at 12. If I like it, I will move it under the bumper guard on my frames. Cheers.

    Swingweight

    Thanks for your advice! Going to start with 2 grams at 12 like you said and can add more later if needed. If I find the balance too head heavy, I will replace the stock (thin and light) yonex grip with either a Prince ResiPro or Wilson Leather grip to counter balance. More stability on volleys...

    Swingweight

    Thanks, would it be better to add 3 grams to feel a substantial difference as it will be my first time using lead? Or would adding slightly more at 3 and 9 be better for what I am looking for? Thanks again.

    Swingweight

    Currently using Yonex Ezone XI 98 with 2 overgrips. Would adding 2 grams of lead tape at 12 be enough to notice any difference? Looking for abit more free power on serves and more stability, without increasing static weight too much. Thanks

    Looking for cheap Poly reel with high tension maintenance

    Pros pro black out 1.24 is a soft spiny crisp string, however tension maintenance isn't it's strength. Yonex Poly Tour Pro 1.25 has to be the best string for tension maintenance, lower powered, but still extremely arm friendly and at £60 a reel, it's very good value. All played in blade 18/20
