    I’m in the US and TW doesn’t have ANY 4 1/2 grip sizes. I need a third to go with the two I bought on another site

    New Racquet

    I prefer the Price TT 310 over the speed for a few reasons: 1. the launch angle is lower (weird despite open pattern) 2. It swings faster for me and yet feels more stable somehow 3. My regular hitting partners told me my ball speed and spin is much better with the prince. My main takeaway is I...

    Is the difference between Roddick and Federer as great as the difference between Gimelstob and Roddick?

    I was a ball kid for Gimelstob at a challenger. Between sets he ate half a tray of fig newtons and broke a racquet. That was my first memory of pro tennis

    Prince Textreme Tour 100 (310) string setups...

    I have found the 16g polys work better than the 17g because of the more open pattern. So far Lynx Tour 1.30 is pretty good, but would like more feel/pocketing. Will be testing more in the coming months.

    Prince Textreme Tour 100 (310) Thread

    I have switched to the 310 after 6 months of looking for a replacement frame. I used an old Wilson Ncode until it broke 3 years ago, then got the pure strike, but after a year with the strikes I got sick of the mushy feeling the babolat and the stiffness. So i went to the VCP97 310 with lead...

    Favorite round poly cross in a hybrid?

    I see Kirschbaum recommended a lot. I’ll have to try them.

    Favorite round poly cross in a hybrid?

    What are some good round polys to use in the crosses with a shaped main poly string (like hyper g)?

    Prince Textreme Tour 100 (310) Thread

    Yeah I wish they would get the PhantomX paint for example, but at the end of the day I don’t care. The stick plays so well - I just added 3 grams at 12 to up the swing weight a tad and it’s great. Maybe I’ll add a leather grip in the future but we’ll see.

    Failed attempt at switching to Prestige MP

    You should get a topspin backhand before you think about what racquet to switch to. I’ve found racquets are differently suited to the backhand vs the forehand. So before you do any switching you should get out and drill so make sure you are solid

    Prince Textreme Tour 100 (310) Thread

    So I’ve been in the racquet wasteland since I started playing again, switching frames twice in 4 years. I’ve been demoing trying to find the right fit as my vcp310 wasn’t cutting it for power or stability. I have demoed every racquet on the market it feels like and decided to give this fugly...

    10 best cities in the U.S for tennis

    I moved from Florida to Atlanta recently and was shocked how popular tennis is. I never lack for a match and though the courts are always busy, I can always reserve one so there seems to be enough supply. The competition is also great - I play 4.5 here and it’s pretty stiff.

    Diadem Elevate Tour

    Just played a singles match with the elevate tour and wow I am impressed! The feel and touch from this racquet is incredible. And it has a ton of spin when you want it. The launch angle is a little lower than some 16x19 but I feel like I got more spin from this one than other 98s. Very nice stick.

    Diadem Elevate Tour

    Just got the elevate tour demo strung up with hyper g 16 at 48 lbs. the other two racquets I am demoing are head speed pro and the ezone tour. Based on the appearance, the elevate tour has wider string spacing than either of these, and has a wider spacing than my vcore pros (current racquet)...

    Ezone 98 opinions

    I found. The E98 and the EZT to play a lot flatter than the vcp. I think it’s launch angle / string spacing that is lower on the ezones

    Diadem Elevate Tour

    I demoed the Elevate Tour and really liked it, but it came strung with a multi and the strings broke after two hitting sessions. Seems like a fairly open string pattern for a 16x20 which I appreciate. My shop is going to string a poly up in it for me to continue testing

    Babolat Pure Aero VS 2020

    Speed pro is good if you are used to the 100 square inches. The mp had a really high launch angle, and though it was fun to hit with, my hitting partner told me he thought my shots weren’t as heavy with the mp as with other racquets in my demo list. Speed pro was nice tho.

    Babolat Pure Aero VS 2020

    I’ve demoed both in the last month. They are very different. New radical is more plush or muted, and give you much less spin. The new radical mp seemed like middle of the pack in everything. Decent spin, comfortable enough, enough free power, but it seemed too light to really be a weapon. The...

    Diadem Elevate Tour

    I have the vcp97 and the vc95 and the elevate tour sounds like the perfect update. Want a larger head and more spin compared the the 95 and want a thicker beam/more power compared to the vcp. This seems like it achieves both based on the comments here

    Diadem Elevate Tour

    Ok I need to try one. I love the 16x20 in my vcore 95 but want a larger head size and thicker beam. Tried the PAVS but the 16x20 pattern is so widely spaced it just feels like a regular pure aero
