    Big Hitter Silver 7 Tour vs Solinco Confidential vs Kirschbaum Max Power

    Hi guys. I tried S7T recently and absolutely loved it. I just want to weigh two more options before I commit to it - Confidential and Kirschbaum Max Power. What I am primarily looking for is price point and tension maintenance. I would love to hear your feedback if you have hit with all three...

    Novak fans, Novak is finally the GOAT

    He should drop the politics. It def made him lose focus this latter half of the year along with other things.

    Novak fans, Novak is finally the GOAT

    He needs the Olympic gold and needs to at least tie the Slams record. To be honest, I dont see either of these happening. I am a Novak fan too but I am being realistic.

    Brian's racquet / string experiments!

    Thats crazy cos I got some Pro's Pro strings too and will test in time. I am really enjoying the S7T too. Do you use the 1.25mm gauge? What do you string at?

    4th year in a row WTF won by player who hasn't won a slam

    I have this theory called the Nitto jinx. Its based on the fact that since 2016, the Nitto winners have had brutal follow up year. Murray was out injured and Dimitrov, Sascha n Tsits just couldnt perform the year after they won. I wonder if the jinx will extend to Medvedev?

    Brian's racquet / string experiments!

    Played with the 1.30mm setup today. It was good. I still need more sessions to gauge how it compares to the 17g. I didn't like that it felt slightly more head heavy.

    Brian's racquet / string experiments!

    Strung my new Vcore 95 backup with BHS7T 1.30mm at 56lbs. My other Vcore still has the 1.25mm which prob has logged 11 hours now and still feels great. Will provide an update on how the 1.30mm feels tmr.

    VCORE PRO HD vs VCORE 95

    I have been playing the Vcore 95 for close to 2 months now. It is currently my racquet of choice and I am loving it. I never played the HD...and so I cant compare. What I can say is that the Vcore 95 with my customisation has helped my game. Yes, it did lack power in stock. I have abt 2.5g of...

    Djokovic lacking emotion?

    Do you folks reckon that perhaps there is some lingering effect of Covid that has caused this degradation in performance since the summer?

    Djokovic lacking emotion?

    Thats a good point but i hope that is not the case cos that is not the best attitude to have esp if you want to get to 20 Slams and have to face guys like Medvedev in the course.

    Djokovic lacking emotion?

    Just watching Djoko vs Medvedev and I am turned off by Djoko's lack of emotion. He used to pump himself more. What happened????

    Reasons for European domination?

    This here strikes me as the most possible reason in conjunction with the fact that Europeans grow up on clay. But it is the fact that pro courts have gotten slower, is something i nvr thought of before.

    Reasons for European domination?

    I was discussing with my wife as to why tennis is so European dominated today. Alternatively, it can be asked why the US or even Australia has not produced great players since the 90s. We discussed culture being a possible reason, better accessibility to coaches and clubs in Europe perhaps...

    What strings should I use?

    Try any Pro Pro strings I think. Super cheap for a reel.

    Brian's racquet / string experiments!

    8 hours logged and I must say the tension maintenance is still feeling great. Won a match 6-3 today. Awesome spin!!! This is the main contender for me so far. I would like to see how it plays in 1.30mm gauge.

    Vcore 95 fave setups?

    Is that 3g at 3 and 3g at 9? Did you add weight at the handle to maintain the balance?

    Vcore 95 fave setups?

    Just thought I would ask - for those with a 1 hand backhand, what customization did you find helped with more plow on it?

    Brian's racquet / string experiments!

    While I did like the Hextreme 1.30mm and it seems to be my frontrunner, i am also looking for other competitors in tension maintenance. So I strung tonight with Big Hitter Silver 7 Tour 17g at 56lbs. Nice string to string with. Will update tmr.

    Brian's racquet / string experiments!

    Fourth outing with the Hextreme setup. Still enjoying it but I am hitting long which tells me it has loosened a bit. I should have strung this higher to begin with - 55lbs.
