    Nike Air Zoom Zero (summer 18 release)

    I wonder if ZoomX will be used in future iterations of this shoe

    The gut/poly thread

    Yes, usually it snaps in the middle/upper middle of one of the two center gut mains. Tonight, I went with full poly at a low tension and played really well with it, but now I have some wrist tenderness. This is something I never get with a hybrid. I will try string savers next. Thanks for...

    Gut is in the mains and I always break the gut

    The gut/poly thread

    I found my favorite setup here... vs gut/revolve. My issue is that now, I’m only getting 3-sets max on this setup before I pop them. That means that with my 4 racquets, I barely make it through a tournament weekend. Is there a more durable setup with the similar feel as gut/revolve? I’m...

    Yonex Vcore Pro 97

    So you’re saying this almost has tweener power and spin? And you’re comparing it to a pa+ too... That’s pretty incredible, if so. That tweener easy power and spin are things I miss when playing with my 95s. I’m more excited to demo it now...

    Thanks to your input on the 310 too! The 310 is now at the top of my list to try and I’m probably gonna demo it after my seasons are over, at the end of this year

    How is the VCore pro 310 on defense? With the tour g 330, I could absolutely clobber the ball, but when put on the run, I often left the ball short without anything on it... basically, lost the point from there. With the VCore 98, I could easily transition from defense to offense. I know the...

    Serena Williams

    Yes, it’s feminism to want equal treatment. Ramos should be allowed to be emotional and act emotionally as he did today. He was so hurt and embarrassed by being called a thief in front of the whole world that he gave her the game penalty. He is an umpire, but he had fielding too and should be...

    Serena Williams

    Surely, you don’t empathize with Ramos. He was called a thief in front of the whole world! How embarrassed would you be? If I was in his position, I too would have taken a game away from her

    Serena Williams

    Federer has never used the word thief in his tirades against umpires, thus, he would never get a warning. It is the most terrible word in the English language. It is the new line you must not cross in tennis

    Disgrace!! I mean they should censor the word thief on these boards. The worst word in the English dictionary

    Nike Vapor X

    This is my first pair of the Vapor Xs. I’m not sure if the shank is the same as the original “bred” ones

    Nike Vapor X

    I initially didn’t have any issues with the slickness of the bottoms... they in fact seemed to have good traction and were quite squeaky.... until last night I had an awkward slide while retrieving a wide ball on the backhand side. It kinda shook me, but other than that, I have had no other...

    Yonex VCORE SV

    I used to use the Yonex VCore Xi 98 as my main racquet and then I moved on to different princes... textreme 95 then phantoms currently. Does anyone have experience with the old VCore Xi 98 that can compare it with the SV 98? I currently do not have access to demo it.

    The gut/poly thread

    Going to try VS/Hawk. My current setup is VS/Revolve. The Hawk and revolve I have are the same gauge. Should I string the Hawk hybrid tighter or looser than my revolve hybrid?

    Racquets that you wanted to love but hated .

    RF97. I bought a couple and played with them for a season, but I just didn’t like the feel.

    Nike Cage 3

    The initial fit of the Nike Zoom Cage 3 was pretty good, more snug than the vapor 9.5s and lunar ballistecs, but I like that secured and locked down feel. Walking in the zoom cage 3, however, I felt pressure against the Achilles, like it could cause a blister there. I think it's that plastic...

    Nike's pink outfits at the 2018 Australian Open

    I have a feeling a lot of this stuff will be found for dirt cheap at outlets, Ross, etc.

    Nike Cage 3

    How does the zoom cage 3 compare to the lunar ballistec 1.5? Sizing/fit? Feel? Cushioning?

    New Yonex Shoes 2018

    I wish they would come out with Eclipsions in blue (In a hard court version) and red (that isn't that red/orange of the first eclipsions)

    Diary of a Racketaholic

    Yea, that was my problem with my experiment with a Yonex DR 100 and years before, with a VCore 100S. The launch angle made me play too moonballish. The Yonex VCore Xi 98 is a 16x20 string pattern which is just open enough for easy topspin, but closed enough for me to control my flat shots...

    Comments on Vcore Xi 98?

    I already have a leather grip on it to counterbalance

    Comments on Vcore Xi 98?

    Thanks! I agree that it feels stable, even in stock. I tried something similar on a VCore 100S with a lot of lead at 12. That racquet didn't feel as stable stock though and I eventually moved on. I still have an Xi 98 with some old Proline II. I will experiment with lead at 12

    Comments on Vcore Xi 98?

    I'm currently using leaded up Prince Textreme Tour 95s, but I really enjoyed my time with the Xi 98 and I'm thinking of going back to it. How did you lead it up to get it to 350 SW?

    Mushy & Muted...

    Mushy? Gut will give you a soft comfortable feel... You can crisp up the stringbed with some poly. No pop as in a lack of noise? Or lack in power? Full bed of gut always makes a loud noise when hitting hard and flat in the sweet spot. A full bed of gut also has a lot of power. I haven't hit...

    Racquets you regret selling?

    My 3 AK90s. Convinced myself that I needed at least a 95" to play the "modern game." Quite stupid

    Is it me or is it Yonex?

    Yea.. Stringer is probably the problem. Played with Yonex ever since the RD-7 with none of the issues presented here. Recently, I had 7 95Ds, used many seasons, strung countless amount of times, since March 2012 and none of them cracked. I did have to replace the grommets though. The...
