    Need advice for new Racket

    Totally agree. There are lovers and haters. And this applies to all racquets that I know/heard of in this forum and in my tennis circle. I just want to prepare OP for the real world out there. This is how I started and look what it has done to me. I'm a hopeless racquetholic now with no end...

    Is the volleyball serve legal in tennis?

    "Immediately before starting the service motion, the server shall stand at rest with both feet behind (i.e. further from the net than) the baseline" Ferrer was at rest before he started the service motion. He only moved after that.

    Need advice for new Racket

    If you still like your Aero Pro 2013 the later versions I believe have been improved in terms of feel and stability. Then just hunt around for a string and tension you like.

    Scratch or crack?

    Looks like a scratch to me.

    Wise 2086 Series 14 Gripper Cleaning Maintenance

    Either of the two grippers should work on your machine. One comes with a diabolo and lever switch, the other has the red (push-button) switch but no diabolo. I have both switches but prefer the lever. I correspond with Dan via email.

    Best Strings for Volkl C10 Pro

    Not sure if I was just imagining things but I feel like I get better spin on Gosen OG Sheep Micro than on a poly/syngut hybrid.

    Best Strings for Volkl C10 Pro

    I'm enjoying Gosen OG Sheep Micro 17 full bed at 57 lbs on my C10. I'm not missing my previous poly/syngut hybrid set up at all. I also have Prince SG Duraflex in my other C10 and it's still good.

    Multi or Multi feeling string that doesn't fray? Or a Poly that feels like multi?

    From my experience multi's always fray. It's the nature of the string's construction - multifilaments. SynGut should be nearest to multi in terms of feel without going poly and it doesn't fray as it's a monofilament.

    Gravity Pro and lead - how do you use it?

    I have both the GPro and VCP HD. Easier power generation in GPro and higher launch angle. It's both an advantage and disadvantage. Same with VCP HD. Lower power and launch angle can either be bad or good. One just needs to commit to one to make it work.

    Volkl C10 Pro - Get's No Respect?

    Been a long-time low-tension (mid 40s) poly/syngut hybrid user. Just switched to full syngut Gosen OGSM 17 @ 57lbs recently (2/3 months ago). Elbow is so much happier. Long lingering elbow soreness/pain almost gone. Comfort is excellent. Control and spins all still there. Only con is...

    Völkl C10 Pro Club!

    Yep 17 it is :) I'll try 16 next time.

    Head Gravity

    Probably depends on where you're coming from. Compared to my C10 Pro the GPro has loads of it. And I'm even using SynGut.

    Völkl C10 Pro Club!

    Just started using Gosen OG-Sheep Micro at 57#. So much better than my go-to poly/syngut setup in all respects. EDIT: And just broke it last night. I think I had between 4.5-6 hrs with it. Any full syngut users here are you getting about similar lifespan?

    Volkl PB10 Mid is back

    I did even worse. Bought it and returned it :) I guess I panicked. Now with all this love expressed in this thread I'm thinking of giving this another shot. But I'm on wife-watch right now :)

    Prince Textreme Tour 100 310 and tennis elbow

    Agree with @tata You changed your strokes "drastically" to ones that resulted in greater force and impact to your muscles and tendons. Your arm/elbow muscles have not been developed enough to offer support and protection to your tendons at this degree of change. In tennis, change should be...

    Völkl C10 Pro Club!

    I've been trying recently other racquets. I demoed the Clash 98, bought a Gravity Pro and a Prince Warrior 107. I have the POG 107 and the Prince Tour 100 18x20 and a pair of the 137sqin Big Bubba's. They were all fun racquets to hit with but all of them needed mods to get them to the weight...

    Völkl C10 Pro Club!

    Wilson Sensation is a multifilament. And at 55lbs I doubt the string was a factor. I think you're just too new with the racquet and have unconsciously been making adjustments on your strokes during play. My experience with trying out new racquets is on first session they're fantastic. On the...

    How to make grip larger but not rounder?

    I use the Wilson Shock Shield Hybrid (24g) to replace the original grip (I don't like leather). I make sure to install it to it's full entirety cutting at the end just for shaping. This adds at least about 10 grams (original grip typically weighs 14g) and increases the grip by 1 size. Even...

    I Am Really Starting To Hate Mixed Doubles...

    No she was a very dear friend hahaha. And we were playing singles. So nobody to blame but me. But hey no offense intended. Just couldn't help it when I saw you refer to the ball as soft and fuzzy :)

    I Am Really Starting To Hate Mixed Doubles...

    Have you actually ever been hit hard by this soft fuzzy ball in any sensitive parts of your body? I've been hit right there at my ahem by an OH smash by a woman college player. We were both at the net. If I had not been incapacitated and writhing on the ground for 3 minutes I would have...

    The biggest OS frame on the planet?

    I have a pair of the the current 29" 137 Big Bubba. It is very playable and fun for my semi-full western grip, full topspin FH and SHBH type of game. My primary sticks are 12+ heavies but I know if I fully commit to this there wouldn't be any problems at all. I just have too many...

    Why do you change to your "other" racquets?

    You're not perfect. One day your game will suck with the PS97 and you will grab that other racquet :)
