    Frame for early twentysomething female beginner?

    Very different, thus why I listed them both. Pure drive for a stiffer, powerful feel. Blade for a more muted, controlled feel.

    Frame for early twentysomething female beginner?

    It needs to be said: a beginner should probably start out with a $40 Walmart-special until they decide they want to be serious. If they've made that decision, go with a Pure Drive 107 or a Blade 104. If the beginner in question is relatively fit, I don't think the weight is an issue (to a...

    Yonex VCORE series 2018

    @frogboy2002 I am right there with you. The current 98+ is my all-time favorite racquet. I hope they didn't mess it up by removing the 20th cross string. The new paint job looks sweet.

    Anyone super picky about socks?

    Socks make a huge difference for me. I need something with a lot of padding. I am currently playing with the Nike Elite Versatility. The lows and the crews are both great.
