    Anyone else here not really interested in new frames or all of this "must have" technology?

    Every time my game develops or my tastes change, I find myself discovering slightly older model racquets with specs that fit the bill. I always end up buying either lightly used, or NOS frames from 2-6 years ago or so. Anyone else here find new racquets to be overkill and just not a good...

    Mixing gauges within a hybrid. Some do's and dont's?

    Ok, I will try to keep this short and sweet. After trying many different strings over the recent years, I have settled on two strings in a hybrid setup that I love. I just need to dial in the right gauges. I am currently using HEAD Velocity 16ga in the main with a Genesis Hexonic 16L in the...

    Double AR Strings - worth the cost to import?

    Hello fellow tennis fans! So I have been interested in trying out some more Double AR strings, but unfortunately the selection here in the states seems slim to nil. Tennis Warehouse has some of them, but only one that I'm interested in trying. Double AR has some very attractive looking deals on...

    Why am I not breaking strings? Not that I'm complaining but...

    I'm a 3.5-4.0 level, all court player that plays at least weekly, and I have yet to break a string. I play Donnay Pro One and XP Dual sticks all strung with a 17ga poly main @ 53 and 16ga Multi cross @ 56, and have had great luck with resiliency and longevity. I restring once every few months...

    Lead tape placement - can it be placed on the outside of the frame?

    The title pretty much says it all folks. I am adding lead tape to the 3 & 9 positions of a project racquet and am wondering if it will have the same effect on the outside of the frame, tight against the grommets (both sides of course), rather than on the inside. I could put it inside, but with...

    POLL: I've narrowed down my favorite hybrid to two combos. Opinions?

    While I haven't tried out dozens of different strings, I have play tested enough to know which I like the most and which didn't fit my playing needs. So far (without mentioning all I've tried), my two favorite hybrids are Genesis Black Magic 17 mains / Gosen Super Micro 16L crosses AND Genesis...

    Donnay Pro One Mid+ racquet quality good, paint quality bad. Possible remedy?

    Greetings fellow tennis players. I recently picked up a couple Donnay Pro One Mid+ racquets (2014 model), and although I love the racquets themselves, the paint on the side lettering is chipping away and coming off QUICKLY. It seems like every time the ball hits the side beam instead of flush...

    Strung my racquet with a hybrid of HEAD Hawk and surprise....

    Today I took my racquet in for a restringing with the HEAD free strings offer. The plan was to get a HEAD Hawk and hybrid my Gosen Micro in the cross. Upon opening my bag, I noticed my forgetful ass left the Gosen at home! I asked the pro-shop guy if he had an equivalent syn gut or a good one he...

    Picked up new HEAD GrapheneXT Speed Limited and its falling apart!

    So I picked up one of these racquets (http://www.tennis-warehouse.com/Head_Graphene_XT_Speed_MP_Ltd_Edition/descpageRCHEAD-SMPLTD.html), and it was fantastic for the first two weeks. Then, all of a sudden, something is rattling loose inside of the racquet near the tip of the head. Wtf could that...

    Thoughts on leather grips vs synthetics?

    Recently I picked up a couple new Head Speed racquets, and although I like the Xtreme Soft Grips from Head (and Gamma Supreme OGs) because of their tackiness, I recently gained interest in leather grips. At a cardio tennis course earlier today, a pro let me check out his Volkl with leather grip...

    Head GrapheneXT Speed MPA - thoughts and opinions?

    Hello all. I recently demoed a Head GrapheneXT Speed MPA (both string patterns) and really liked it right away. It felt natural, had great power and control and just felt right in my hands. While the 16x16 was fun to mess around with, I don't think that is the way to go for me, as the 16x19 had...

    Anyone else here use Genesis Black Magic poly?

    I've been using the Genesis Black Magic (17ga) poly strings for quite some time and love them! I've been experimenting with them in a hybrid, and am waiting on a set of Gosen Micro Super syn gut to test drive in the cross. Right now I'm using the BM in the mains at 57 with a multi-filament...

    To new racquet or not to new racquet??

    Greetings everyone, this is my first time visiting and posting on the forums and I could use your advice! I love me some tennis, and have been playing with two trusty Yonex RDS 003 racquets (2008 models) for some time now. Unfortunately, they seem to have lost some stability and "pop" on the...
