    Tennis in Las Vegas

    I'll be in Vegas the week of March 15th. Looking for clay courts, it looks like DTC hasn't built theirs yet and Stirling is the only one with clay courts (but membership only, although I'll be calling the pro there and asking if there's any way two high school kids could slide around a bit...)...

    Luxilon Element vs Hyper G Soft

    TW University has Hyper G Soft 1.25 (16L) winning in comfort (172 vs. 208 lb/in) and tension maintenance (29% vs. 33%). I've played both in a 95in 18x20 and I can definitely say that Hyper G Soft has a longer lifespan, and would be my choice if it were up to me. Element has a better peak (when...

    Gamestop: teenage millionaires vs Hedge Fund Managers

    The clearing firms limited trading on certain tickers such as GME and AMC. The decision was ultimately not up to Robinhood, although both should absolutely be punished.

    Gamestop: teenage millionaires vs Hedge Fund Managers

    People are aiming for the wrong target. Robinhood, WeBull, etc. have to go through a clearing firm such as Citadel Clearing and Apex Clearing. The clearing firms obviously have ties to hedge funds, with Citadel having a majority stake in Melvin Capital, one of the more prolific shorters of GME...

    Best 95 sq/in Racquet??

    Did those lose their pop much? I know Roger replaces his sticks quarterly or something like that because they lose a bit of theirs. You've been using the bumblebee longer than I've been alive.

    Best 95 sq/in Racquet??

    Good question. I don't think I pay THAT much attention to my racquets. Probably doesn't help that I've never used the same racquet for more than a year.

    Tennis Warehouse Playtest: Dunlop CX 200 2021 Family

    Good luck to all. I really want some comparisons to the old one, because those are super cheap rn!

    Best 95 sq/in Racquet??

    Dunno if it's been said yet, but Six.One team. A tad thinner, definitely lighter, and a bit flexier than the full fledged six one. Great platform frame.

    Fellow Cage 3 which shoe are you going?

    I used the Cage 3 for the better part of two years before the Cage 4. Now I'm on the Revolt Pro 3.0, which I feel are super similar, if not better. Same plastic-rubber "cage"/overlay, pretty light, and a bit more stable since the midsole is more continuous. The sizing fits me much better than...

    Kirschbaum strings are arguably the best bang-for-buck in the market from a more established brand. I believe all of their poly strings are factory prestretched, which means they are usually a little stiffer but have stellar tension maintenance. They have a little bit of everything for everybody.

    Tried a bunch of polys - results here: 1. Hyper-G, 2....

    The VCore 95 is a picky eater. Hyper-G Soft has a bit more power than its older brother. TW lab puts it on par with some Synthetic Guts! Local coach has one that he brings out every once in a while, strung with a round poly like Adrenaline or Max Power. He played upper D2 and has super spinny...

    Anyone try Tourna Grit?

    I've tested Grit in a Pure Strike 16x19, Prostaff 97, and Blade 98. Definitely very comfortable, and there IS some sort of texture to it before tensioning. Once tension is applied, the "roughness" disappears. It also does not seem to be round! I could feel noticable edges. After a bit though it...

    Soft tennis “ rackets?

    Woah! I stand corrected. Today I learned. 10/10 would try out a soft tennis racquet for regular tennis.

    Soft tennis “ rackets?

    That is most likely a mistranslate. The pictures racquet looks to definitely be a Squash racquet, especially given the super-duper long throat and small headsize and beam.

    Hyper G Alternative

    Echoing others here, but Hyper G Soft 18 should be on your list. Stiffness for the 16L is comparable to some synthetic guts!

    Most Pros are using stock racquets

    Currently uses a prostock Head "Speed Pro." Extended length. Although he has been going on and on about the VCore 95 recently.
