    Gravity Tour v Extreme Tour v Speed MP

    98 versus 100. So really not a massive reduction. I find sweetspot is a little less important on spin heavy racquets.(or I am just well dialed in with it) The ET felt string sensitive. It also always felt like it was just one more tweak away from true greatness. In the end I preferred most of...

    Gravity Tour v Extreme Tour v Speed MP

    Hard part for me is guessing which direction your game will end up:) Lots of growth between 4.0 and 5.0. All of the racquets I really like just a mater of which helps you play your best:) Nothing wrong with someone picking the options I didn't pick:)

    Gravity Tour v Extreme Tour v Speed MP

    Rough finding the perfect racquet for everything. I ended up with two...Speed MP and Gravity Pro. Radical Pro/MP would be in the middle, but the sweet spot is a little tight which might cause issues. I had to actually add some pauses before my swing the Radical MP was so fast. Pro I did not...

    How to get used to US Open balls (coming from Penn Championship XD)

    Both would help but the problem I feel it the OP did not expect to face Wilson Open Balls and it was a game day call. They could have a second racquet strung just for Wilson Balls, but I feel they would still need to learn to attack the ball a little earlier.

    Gravity Tour v Extreme Tour v Speed MP

    Extreme Tour you either need a little weight or great timing/swing to play against the heaviest hitters. It prefers heavy spin, but will hit flat. Reasonable sweet-spot. It should be ok against most fours but fives you might have trouble if you don't attack early and have a good swing.

    How to get used to US Open balls (coming from Penn Championship XD)

    One of the reasons to rotate which balls you use versus being attached to only one ball type/brand. Short answer buy a case and learn to play with them. They are a popular ball and Wilson Open fans(normally) dislike playing with anything else. They are very lively for about the first set, then...

    High swing weight players

    It really depends on how you swing the racquet. If you are whipping it around the SW might be an issue. If you let the racquet do the work and have a nice flowing stroke... I never find it problematic. Normally play 4-5 times a week for 3 hours at a go.

    Wide toe box

    Wide toe box

    I often write off Nike. Early on I found all of their shoes so narrow. Good to hear they have a wider range of offerings. Manufactures should listed measurements.(they know them) Shoe size leaves toooo many variables. Think of how much easier it would be to find a new shoe. Problem is it would...

    Shoes for wide feet in 2021

    I have not had problems with the Hyper-court Supreme. Then again I am gentle on shoes. SFX3 I think has a good sole, if I recall correctly. Always a balancing act or price, treadlife and traction. My opinion on shoes is they should last between 60-120 hours depending on the level of the player...

    Wide toe box

    Kswiss in general makes shoes with a nice wide toe box. Just a mater of finding the right shoe. Personally I like the Kswiss Hypercourt Supreme. There is another thread discussing wider shoes which might help as well.

    Easier to build up a grip 1 size or go down 1 size?

    You already have your answer...Normally I would aim for down one and go up, but it really depends on the racquet and existing setup. Some racquets are easier to reduce then others. Some racquets you can easily switch the pallet as well.

    Does a powerful racket make it easier to generate ball speed?

    They might also be adapting the string as well. When I play with various racquets the speed/power(of ball) is often similar. The difference is how much effort I applied to get it there. ) Powerful racquets I reduce my power greatly unless I can add extra spin. Racquets with less power I...

    Shoe Dilemma

    Ahh the old looks versus comfort. Other variables would be effectiveness and price. Effectiveness>=Comfort>Price>Looks. Unless I find the looks of the shoe dreadful. Looking at the GP turbo shoes, unless it matches your outfit color most of them are pretty bad. The yellow and black or black and...

    Socks

    Baseball as well. I find synthetic blends are normally better than cotton in this situation. Personally I rather find one thick sock versus two, but I also rather not be in pain. Basically a good way to add a little extra cushion and help fill out a shoe to reduce movement. You might have to...

    Do you have specific racquet needs or can you adapt to whatever is prevalent ?

    Define new? I have tried Prince Textreme Series(Beast and Tour), Phantom, Warrior. I have not tried the modern Ripstick or Synergy. I like the Beast and Tour series. Respect the Phantom series...Warrior is ok.

    360+ Radical MP vs. 360+ Prestige Tour

    I prefer the Radical MP over the Presitge Tour, but it really depends on the player. Just really accustom to the Radical line. I don't dislike the Prestige but if you made me pick one racquet only it would be the Radical. It is a little easier to tap into... Speed MP is also a nice racquet if...

    Do you have specific racquet needs or can you adapt to whatever is prevalent ?

    I find playing with various racquets enjoyable. I don't switch my main racquet often. Before my current racquet I was playing with head LM Radicals. Normally I like arm friendly racquets. Players tend to want to try various strings(are are normally inflexible with using arm friend strings), so a...

    Failed attempt at switching to Prestige MP

    You made quite a leap in racquets. Not sure why you wanted to switch to 18x20. 16x19 fits your current playstyle. Gravity Pro/Tour might be something to explore. Still I thought overall you showed great ease of movement around the court. Radical Pro/mp 360+, Speed MP/Pro 360+ all interesting...

    Head Gravity MP vs Gravity Tour

    Has the 3/8 in stock. Maybe not the firesale price, but less then the new colorway. https://www.tennis-warehouse.com/Head_Graphene_360_Gravity_Tour/descpageRCHEAD-HGTG36.html Unfortunately I was looking for a frame for a friend and wanted 1/4.
