    Donnay's new Pentacore line of rackets

    I'm glad you like your new Donnay. I think they have good racquets, but unfortunately they have some questionable people at the helm of the company these days. Recently I've put my Donnay's to rest in favor of a Prince Tour Pro 98. It feels quite plush and has a great weight distribution imo. It...

    Let's Gather All Grip Specs (Weight & Thickness) Into One Thread

    This is a new offering from Genesis, who is under new ownership. I haven't tried this one, but would like to give it a whirl sometime. Curious your thoughts if you ever get around to trying it.

    Dunlop becomes new official balls partner at AO

    Wow, that's not been my experience with the Dunlop Championship Hard Court balls at all. I live in Florida, a sub-tropical climate, and they still hold up quite well and don't "get heavier" like those told timers were saying. Maybe they're just old and their arms get heavy in general lol...

    Dunlop becomes new official balls partner at AO

    This is good news! I have been using Dunlop balls for years now and love their "Championship Hard Court" tennis balls in particular. For your money, I don't think you can get a better quality ball at that price point.

    Dunlop becomes new official balls partner at AO

    That's awesome. Dunlop makes a fantastic tennis ball, and I've been using the Championship Hard Court for years. Where I'm living, they offer the best bang for the buck imo. They're about the same price as the cheaper Wilson's and Penn's but last longer and don't feel as cheap...

    Kyrgios: "Grass is pure tennis, clay is not"

    Its really hard to find grass tennis courts in America. They are especially rare in my home state of Florida. That being said, I can say we are fortunate to have clay and hard courts pretty much EVERYWHERE. Especially hard courts...

    Anyone play Donnay?

    Donnay makes a great frame, but you may want to consider getting them from anywhere BUT their actual website. They have pissed off a large number of customers with their incredibly shady pricing scheme that seems to change overnight, at will. Case in point - Howie (the supposed savior of Donnay...

    Donnay's new Pentacore line of rackets

    Well, I think Donnay is probably on the way out. They have pissed off a large number of customers with their incredibly shady pricing scheme that seems to change overnight, at will. Case in point - Howie (the supposed savior of Donnay and new CEO), has all but removed Facebook reviews and the...

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

    What exactly do you mean by that? Are you saying manufacturers are using the exact same sticks, adding bologna "technology" to them and giving them a new paint job to sell as an entirely different racquet at a later date?

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

    I think the cycle of new releases is just too frequent. I mean a new model every year? It reminds me of this brewery that special released itself into failure. Every month they were releasing a "special release" beer and people just lost interest. There are many examples of this, and pretty much...

    Double AR Strings - worth the cost to import?

    ^ Idk, I live in the states and have never used them aside from the Twice Dragon which was somewhat soft for a poly. You're local, try a pack and find out for yourself :)

    Ultimate Comfort Racquet - help me narrow it down

    If you're looking for comfort, your list is sorely missing out on one of the most comfortable racquet developers out there, Donnay. They are solid core racquets with lower flex ratings and a great response yet smooth, comfortable feel. You're selling yourself short by not checking them out...

    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...

    Double AR Strings - worth the cost to import?

    ^ ahh, well if you can buy them locally, go for it. It changes the outlook completely. No investment risk lol

    Double AR Strings - worth the cost to import?

    As far as I know "Star" is just a better version of the same string with better tension maintenance. From reading reviews and doing some research, I concluded theres no reason to pay that kind of $$ to import these strings when we have so many good options state side. The reviews on DoubleAR...

    Donnay's new Pentacore line of rackets

    That means nothing but money, and you have fallen victim to marketing. Why do you think players leave one brand for another? Money. Players don't just use what they want to use, they use who is going to pay them millions. Wow, I'm sorry but you sound very misinformed and kind of bitter. Where...

    Donnay's new Pentacore line of rackets

    I agree. That is way too light, and the SW is far too low. You would get absolutely no plow-through on the ball whatsoever and would have to lead tape the hell out of it. I would expect them to release more Hexacores this year, and hopefully with some better specs. Maybe when they do, they'll...

    Donnay Pro One Gt's- They're Back! Xenecore

    So I just wanted to mention that I actually spoke with the new head of Donnay last evening. He is the new CEO and has only been on board for a couple of months, so it sounds like he is trying to turn things around and change some of what they've been doing up to this point. He offered a lot of...

    Donnay Pro One Gt's- They're Back! Xenecore

    I agree and thought that was a bit odd myself. They expect a great customer service improvement by reducing staff and having only one person handle it all? I think maybe they're banking on the idea that people will get excited that it's the CEO taking their personal requests. Wow, I get to speak...

    Donnay's new Pentacore line of rackets

    Tada! Their new Hexacore is probably the closest you're going to get. And btw, it's not really made out of wood and holy crap I hope that swingweight is a typo.
