    Control strings and setups for Yonex

    Would VS Touch mains at 53 and 4G crosses at 51 be a good option to control high(er) launch angles from a Yonex VCORE 98 which has a 16x19 open string pattern? What has been your experience with control oriented setups on Yonex ? Full beds of RPM Blast, Solinco Confidential, Tecnifibre Red...

    Advice on new Blade

    Hi guys, I currently play with Blade 104 v6 which according to TW is 5HL, 318 SW. Since I play double handed forehand and backhand the 27.5 length does really help as well as the 104 head size. In the past I gave SW104 v6 a try but it felt too cumbersome at the net and adjusting to the extra 0.5...

    Winter - alternative to gut mains

    Hi guys, my setup is lux nat gut/4g SOFT at 56/54 and I live it very much specially after a couple of sessions and it becomes slightly softer; however, as I play on astroturf in the UK, with the winter coming we get a lot of damp conditions as the courts do retain some rain, balls get wet and...

    Best traction

    Guys which Nike Clay tennis shoes offers in your view the best traction ? I mean with the most agressive herringbone sole? I’m planning to give them a try on AstroTurf as I’m sick and tired of trying to find a Nike Omni or grass pair of tennis shoes - thanks!!!

    Really struggling

    I posted this request for help a while ago but it was slightly inconclusive. I play mostly on artificial grass and I find grass tennis shoes to give a really good grip even in slighter slippery humid courts.. however it’s just insane how difficult is it to find NIKE grass tennis shoes. So my...

    Suggested Tension Gut/4G_SOFT

    Recently, off recovering from a mild tennis elbow I settled my wilson 104 blade well on sensation/element at 55/52. I wanna try a new setup, bringing back my all time fav poly which is 4G but the SOFT one which is a tad higher in terms of stiffness but the tension maintenance and muted feel is...

    Would these shoes be fine ?

    I'm struggling with finding omni (or grass) tennis shoes that I like to replace my grass vapour 9.5 - I play mostly on astroturf and traction is a big thing for me. Do you think these could work as I like them and they seem to have the right sole or do they miss key properties like lateral...

    Lead tape on Blade 104 ?

    hi guys I just moved back to a blade 104 2017 as the SW104 proved just too unmaneuravable and cumbersome.. before the sw104 I was also playing with the blade 104 but the 2015 version. I prefer the 2017 version better, seems a tad more stable and heavier as it also seems by the specs. However I...

    Customising SW104

    I play with a SW104 and I'm thinking of ways to reduce the swinghweight a bit, in order to improve the manoeuvrability (specially for doubles or net play). I thought of removing the bumper guard (not sure how much it weights) and then put on a saver tape.. what do you think? Any other options...

    Wilson Revolve 17 White - I was thinking 55 given the SW 104 racquet specs (28 lenght, 18x19, 104sqi, 340sw as well as recommended 50-60lbs). Is that too tight? I am a 4.0 all court player with powerful double handed forehand and backhand. Thanks!
