    low tension poly in Extreme Tour, Ezone98, vcore98,tt310, speed etc

    Thinking of picking up a lighter, mid stiffness racquet. I usually play thin beam heavier sticks. I am ~4.0. My question is whether anyone has experience playing full poly at low tensions (<45) successfully in any of the racquets listed in the thread title (or any other racquet in that...

    3.5 F Pure Aero Team...what string should I use

    I am a home stringer who will string for a few people that I know. A woman who I would estimate at 3.5 gave me her sticks to string. Looks they currently have RPM Blast Rough in them. She says her current strings are fine but is open to what I think is best. She is also open to having the...

    cutting down Prince Tour NXG OS

    Anybody done this? I picked up one on the cheap and ideally would like to cut it down from 27.5" to 27". The problem is the handle is already very short (shorter than POG 107) and it has this goofy Air+ handle where there is an actual slot cut into the frame. Anyway, if I do cut it, I would...

    Extending a volkl c10 comp mid

    So I bought a c10 comp mid for 10$. Took it home, strung it up, and then realized it had been shortened by about 3/4". I took the butt cap off (not original) and it definitely looks like it was sawed. As a side note what a fricken' handle. Only six sides (are all volkls like this?) and red...

    durability of syn gut mains/poly crosses

    I have recently switched to the POG 107. My arm is sensitive so full poly is out for the time being. I tried vs touch / silverstring but only got around 7 hours. Not enough to justify the cost. I then tried technifibre syn gut 16/ silverstring and it was an absolute awesome feeling string...

    Can anyone tell me anything about this racquet? I have searched the forums and google and found nothing. Looking for specs if possible and playability.

    As I ponder the return to tennis (likely not til July where I live) I was considering wearing a glove on my left hand (I'm a righty). My thought was that the only shared surface between players are the balls so if I wore the glove on the left hand there would never be any reason to make contact...

    Going full Agassi...backhand grip

    I have the haircut, the racquet and the rubber band. Its time to commit to the backhand grip change. So Agassi says continental on lower hand, and the "v" of the upper hand on 1st bevel and it looks like his heel pad on upper hand is on 8. I typically have upper hand on 7 and sometimes 6...

    Game Changer Racquets (for your game)

    I've only had two experiences playing with a different racquet where the switch was so significantly different than what I was playing (in a positive way) that I thought 'game changer'. The first was: - switch to Prince 100T ESP. Holy crap suddenly every ball I hit stayed in. Probably should...

    Prestige tour 660

    Thinking of picking up one of these locally. What do I look for wrt the suspension handle to ensure it’s still in decent playable shape? Bounce a ball on stringbed and feel for rattles? Anything else I should look for? And finally are grommets still available? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    dunlop srixon cx200 tour 16 x 19 string recommendation

    Picked up one of these and strung it at 52 with Head Velocity. Love the racquet but I need more juice. Put about 2.5" of lead at 3 and 9 and some counter at 7" in the handle but still lacking depth. I am curious what users of this racquet are stringing and at what tension? Thanks

    Is there a best version of the POG 107

    I'd like to get a 107. Is there an iteration that is considered better than the rest? I noticed there a few single stripe versions on the big site. Thanks in advance.

    recommended knot for thin slippery string

    I have strung ~100 racquets or so now for myself and my friends. I have been using the Parnell knot exclusively. On two separate occasions stringing Head Velocity 17 the knot has not held. I feel confident I am tieing the knot correctly. So, is there a preferred knot for thin slippery...

    Pulling initial throat mains with old Ektelon DE/H stringer

    A while ago I purchased an old Ektelon DE with the H upgrades. I had to buy a few parts to get it going again and it is working just fine. However, when I pull the initial mains from the throat the handle on the crank interferes with the racquet mounting system making it impossible to pull the...

    New Old Stock: Babolat Pure Storm Team GT

    I found a very generous deal on some brand new (old) Babolat Pure Storm Teams. Before purchasing I read what I could in old forum posts and I kept seeing reference to a comfortable racquet with an RA of 60 that takes lead well. So I purchased not giving it much thought but when I received the...

    Youtek Radical MP vs Pure Storm GT redux

    So I have the opportunity to purchase new old stock of the mentioned racquets at a very good price. I currently use: Angell TC97 x 2 (16x19); Dunlop AG300 x 2, Prince Classic Graphite 100. I thought adding something with a denser string pattern might be nice to have in the quiver. The...

    Prince Classic Graphite 100 vs current Prince offerings

    I have a PCG 100 that I have started hitting with and I must say its a bit addictive. Something about the feel; I don't know what it is or how to describe it but it feels right; its like the body is super flexy and for me feels way softer than its RA. However, they don't make it anymore. For...
