    What did I miss?

    Been off of here for a few months, anyone have a TL;DR summary for me — miss anything good? :unsure:

    Swingweight customization question

    Hoping you guys could help me with some math because it's late at night and I'm not getting it. I have a DR 98 (310g) that I added a leather grip to (an increase of 8g). Without knowing what the new swingweight is with the leather grip, is there any way of figuring out how much lead (and where)...

    18x20 string gauge

    When they say a 17 gauge string lends better to stringing a denser 18x20 pattern, do they mean 1.25 or 1.20? And is it simply to help ease the stringing, or are there any other benefits? Thanks

    Bad Parnell

    Once in a blue moon I'll get a Parnell knot wrong. I can't seem to replicate this error... what is this knot that I've done and will it hold? (It's my racquet not a client's).

    Private destination clinics

    I know this topic has been mentioned before, but what are your thoughts on the 2 days clinics some of these online coaches are offering. Do you think 2 days is enough time to grasp new knowledge or fix poor habits (for $1000+)? I've been following both sets of coaches for some time now and I...

    Wilson Blade v7 18x20 cross stringing question

    I'm pretty sure I did this wrong... I'm so used to Yonex 2-pieces which end up so clean. I bought a new 18x20 v7 Blade and as per their site, it mentions to tie the x-string at 6T, 12B. Problem being the mains have already travelled back to tie off at 7B which leaves a bundle of strings like in...

    Wilson 18x20 v7 incorrect review score

    Hey there, I think there's an incorrect value for the slice on your review page — I'm assuming it's an average of all your 4 scores? If so that would make it (9.1+8.8+8.5+8.8)/4 = 8.8. Unless the calculations are done otherwise, I was just surprised by the score considering it's one of the...

    Wilson v7 Balance

    Hey there, Quick question for clarity — on your site it shows the 18x20 v7 balance as 4pts and on the official Wilson site, it says 7pts — is it 4pts strung? Thanks!

    Racket Logger

    I just stumbled on this — most of you probably know of it, but I thought I'd share for those who don't. It's pretty rad to be able to organize strings and racquets on a graph to compare them visually: https://www.racketlogger.com/string-explorer

    Lowering my tension

    Wondering if anyone's experienced this — I usually string at #57/52, but I noticed I start really gelling with my strings when the overall tension drops 3-4lbs. So the other day I strung up at #55/50 and it was terrible, didn't have the same feel for some reason, very trampoline-y. I ended up...

    Organizing your racquet bags

    I was wondering how you all organize your compartments in your bags. I'm pretty anal retentive and need to have all my wrist bands together in one section, my exercise bands and skipping rope in another, my dampeners and wraps in another, etc... But I'm still finding tough to sort through it...

    RF97A poly question

    Question for Michelle or Troy, hope you can help! Looking for a recommendation on a poly for the RF97A, that has more feel to it than Hyper G, and that is not overly plastic-y or wiry? Open to round or shaped suggestions. Thanks in advance!

    Do you guys use a straight arm on your OHBH à la Thiem, or have a slight bend like Fed? And out of curiosity, have out tried both and noticed differences?

    Slack in the mains + 2 other questions

    Question 1 I'm unsure if I awake last night or not, but I was stringing my racquets up and was getting this weird slack/drawback, but only when doing the mains: Question 2 A simple one, why is it whenever I lay out the finishing tape on my overgrip (or even replacement grip), it looks good...

    WTA 2HBH Stance

    Out of curiosity, why do so many WTA players play their 2HBH out of this stance? I'm a OHBH so it's hard for me to relate... is it to generate more power or more of a defensive thing? Why do we see less of this by ATP players (or am I just not paying attention to it)?

    I can't believe I watched the whole thing

    (on 2x speed) is my clickbait title ;)... Video of men's top 10 rankings every day from 1990 to 2018. For me it was crazy to see how long Agassi lingered and then how dominant Fed and Djoko became respectively during their peak.
