    Fast paced city or slow quiet one

    This thread is about discussing what type of town or city you like or think has the best going for it for whatever reason that is important to you. Here in Australia it's quite simple. We have 8 capital cities and many smaller regional centres. Sydney and Melbourne are far and away the largest...

    Are you a forum expert ?

    I was just wondering how many of you only participate in this forum or are you involved in many? I originally came here due to my interest in racquets and racquet reviews and I purchase gear through here, but over the years I have tended to also seek out the "odds and ends " category and I...

    Holes in the inside of your heels

    Few if the shoes H've owned recently have developed holes inside the heel and each time it died that I invariable develop heel blisters if I say go for a walk somewhere.

    How far back are you prepared to go?

    Basically what I'm referring to is that we are almost at the end of the decade and there are pros and the general public still choosing to play with the classics and pro stocks like the PT57 A and the like. Many see these frames as better than current retail offerings. At some stage the people...

    Lacoste LT 12

    Did anyone buy one of these? How do they play ? Is it similar to the Pro Kennex Core 1 racquets in design and playability? I believe they were very pricey when released and each racquet was numbered, is that right?

    Customer feedback and company response to that feedback.

    I was watching the review of the new Dunlop Srixon CX 2.0 tour and play testers Michelle and Chris had commented that the new model had addressed many of the concerns that they had with the previous model, particularly referring to the SW issue and not needing to customise things as much and I...

    Volkl V Feel 10 Mid

    I was wondering whether you guys/girls know anything about what Volkl plans to do with this model. There have been quite a few different takes including the PB series, then the 2 SG frames and then the V Sense frame, all quite different. Will there be a a new V Feel 10 Mid or perhaps a re...

    Current mass, balance and SW trends!

    Just to set the scene: Once upon a time the traditional players frame was a heavy headlight frame. Current example I will nominate the C10 Pro. Then in the 90's they took the weight out of the handle and made them head heavy such as the Wilson Hammer series. Websites like racquet research argued...

    Pro Kennex H5 pallets

    I was wondering if anyone can help me track down some G5 pallets to fit the current Q series racquets. I am on the understanding that TW don't sell pallets so was wondering who I can contact in the US or international as Aus doesn't do them.

    Prince TT Warrior

    just wanted to ask whether anyone here has owned both an early and late production run of these racquets. The reason I ask becsuse I have hit with a late version of this frame and it definately plays a lot more flexible than the 67 RA specs which describes the original version. In the end I...

    Pro Kennex Core 1 No 6

    Picked up a brand new Core racquet and replaced the standard grip with a leather one. It sure is a beautiful racquet and has a nice feel. I spoke to a guy who says he cut one up and said he couldn't find any wood in the frame which sought of confused me because it does have a wooden feel to it...

    Graphene 360 - the 4th attempt by Head

    Well what I want to discuss here In this forum is about Graphene, which is now in its 4th iteration. To many Head enthusiasts the Head racquets that achieved popular status were the twin tube frames such as the PT57a. If you go searching for these now they command high prices, even more than...

    Mizuno 8.9 & 9.2

    Does anyone know whether these racquets were always manufactured in Japan or did they at some stage switch to China ? From memory the 9.2 was the stiffer frame. Anyone know the specs of these frames and did they use injection moulding as per Dunlop 200g? Thx

    Bosworth 96

    While I remember reading threads about this frame about a year ago I was wondering if anyone has bought one recently. They are pricey. What's the quality like, and how comfortable are they and what's the feel like? From a conceptional point of view they espouse the virtues of using heavy sticks...

    V Pro v Duel G v V Core 330 preferences

    For those who have used or tested some of these frames what's your preference. Which one do you like the best, I kind of like the older orange V Core 330 because of the low RA but many say this frame is not as easy to swing as the next 2 generations hence less playable. What's your view ?

    What direction should Volkl go with their 10 mids?

    I was just thinking that the new 10 series Volkl's are only 3 months away and I've heard that there will be some changes with the Mids, something that Volkl has been experimenting with for the last few generations. At present you can still buy the PB 10 Mid with its 19.5mm beam 59/60 RA and 93sq...

    Top 5 Pro Kennex frames ever!

    I thought I'd post this thread on Pro Kennex. These days I feel many people under estimate just how good their racquets are and how well priced they are. Their biggest strength is their comfort technology and many people have saved their playing careers by using one of these. Personally my top...

    Which brands own their own factories?

    is there anyone here who knows anything about this. Back in the day for example Pro Kennex was a manufacturer. They made their own racquets plus made racquets for other companies as well. I don't know how it is now. These days there are quite a few companies that are marketing machines but I...

    Tonight I had a chance to hit with the following new racquets from Volkl: V Feel 9, all three versions of the 8, the 6 and the 4. To put my views in perspective my preference has always been for heavy, flexible traditional racquets hence I like C 10's and tour 10's type of frames. At present...
