    When I see him serve, I find that the movement is very close to Raonic. Couldn't find any reason (coach or else) why that may be. Perhaps it's just a coincidence.

    For sure, it's not on them, I just thought that considering all the heft and plough-through tw mentioned in their review; I was expecting something quite heavier to swing

    Do heavy rackets require larger grip sizes?

    Probable that this has evolved towards smaller gap, but it used to be the width of your index.

    Yonex Vcore Pro 97

    All right so I just received the sticks, and I'm surprised to see that they're quite lighter than I expected (350g strung + overgrip). Also, it seems that the weight distribution is quite polarised (feels a little closer to my original pure strike tour actually).

    Do heavy rackets require larger grip sizes?

    Fully agreed, I have larger hands which is why I mentioned those sizes. But I would see why the majority of males would be more in the L3-L4 category

    Do heavy rackets require larger grip sizes?

    RD97A/L4 user here, (if sticks with L5 would be available, I would probably have liked to give it a try). I really like what crocodile said, especially regarding the wrist injuries. I would add that personally, I feel that going smaller in grip size lead me to increase the force I need to exert...

    What produces a "heavy ball"

    I'm surprised that nobody in whichever calculations has mentioned the impact of the playing surface. (indoor/outdoor and wet vs dry conditions). A flat hit on fresh grass will have a different feel to hit back compared to if it's on damp clay

    Ideas for storing unused rackets

    Agreed for the stress on the frame (I would add on the grommets as well). Fact of the matter is, when you'll pick those up again, you'll have them restrung anyways, so I don't see any point of leaving them on

    How to create a custom paintjob (very detailed)

    I picked up 3 RF97A the other day, and while they're structurally sound, they have paint chips all over. Since the grommets have to be replaced as well, I was looking for ideas (could be anything, older racquet photo, current pj etc...), for a paint job that would give them a "classic" look!

    Probably the column you're reading when there's a match are from table B, did you name your columns in order to identify them post-join?

    Did you find a solution to your problem in the end? Overall, JS is quite simple, and since it would be for some front-end stuff, you shouldn't need much more than codepen.

    Yonex Vcore Pro 97

    Been reading through the thread. RF97A user here, likes it for pretty much every shot but on serve and feels a bit light on ohbh. I've been scouting around the 2nd hand market, and for an identical price I can get the vcore pro 97 or the duel g (both in 330 obviously). From what I understand...

    Low, low tensions. 30lbs feels great. 20lbs pretty good, too

    Well I've strung my RF97A with a tension of 18kg (soon dropped to 15kg) with L-Tec and honestly, I really love it. So I'm not sure I would agree with that statement.

    Couple of Racquets for sale here. Pretty much a clearance as I know now what my preferences are. If you're looking to trade, my current racquets are RF97A L4 and Pure Strike Tour 18x20 L5. I like many racquets that have a high SW, so I'm open to offers. Shipping from Belgium, I'll be quite easy...

    Wilson RF97A

    The ball pocketing, spin (because there's more string movement) and overall feel, I thought, were really nice. Compared to other strings, I found the string bed was more even, and never got out of control when hitting on the spot with such a lower tension. It's a little harder for me to judge as...

    Wilson RF97A

    I have to say that L-tec strings did wonders for me, especially with that frame. I setup was 44 mains and 40 cross. I'd be very curious to know if anyone else tried it. Sent from my ONEPLUS A5010 using Tapatalk
