    When to replace base clamps?

    Thank you all! Always appreciate the insight you guys have. I'll try to get the springs and instructions, and if not, perhaps buy them as insurance.

    When to replace base clamps?

    Hey all! So I picked up a used Alpha Ghost and I love it. Just recently replaced the clamps directly from Alpha just to ensure they're performing at their best. Now I did notice that they also offered to sell me the base clamps, which isn't necessarily cheap. When would be the right time to...

    Looking to pick up a Blade 98s 2015 in 1/4, thi sis the 18x16 model (Spin Effect). I picked up two in decent condition and wanted to add a 3rd so I can find an optimal setup I like. T-W is selling B Grade Used for $100, so around there is my budget. sonicrl@gmail.com or DM me here if you are...

    Review VESSEL Baseline Racquet Backpack and Bag

    I only use my bag 2-3 times a week, so this is super annoying. to answer your question, It broke in half.

    Just had another one just break on me. Seriously considering getting it replaced again and unloading it here on the For Sale board.

    Diary of a Racketaholic

    I liked the Blade 98s V7 but I like the 2015 even better. Picked up two from the 'bay in fantastic shape. The stiffer frame allows for nicer pop.

    Notching from stringer with NXT

    I re-do a string job for my friends when I ghost a multi! This is ridiculous, I would ask for a refund or a new set of strings so I could go elsewhere.

    Diary of a Racketaholic

    I picked up a Blade 16x19 and intend on putting 5g to the handle and stringing it up with VS Gut / Luxilon Element at 52/50. Let's see if this is finally the one

    Review VESSEL Baseline Racquet Backpack and Bag

    They replaced the pull tab part, and I had to use pliers to bend the zipper, put it in, and close it again. Correct, I should have been more clear I think that part is going to be a weak spot, I'll report back after the summer when it's being tossed around and in the sun a lot.

    Hehhe, I tell myself that it's an effective way to test a new frame in multiple string setups, lets me go through the experimentation and honeymoon phases quicker.

    This is a dangerous club now that I am older. When I impulse buy now, I tend to pick up two matched racquets, just in case I fully switch over :p

    Prince RipStick 300 - coming soon!

    Hmmm..I tried it now with NRG2 strung at 54 and VS Gut/Poly Tour Air, and I don't know...not feeling it. I liked the feel of the Beast 100 Traditional and O3 more. I found my weighted up Clash to have more feel and pop compared to the stock RipStick. Maybe it needs a stiffer string, but I don't...

    One of my frames is currently strung it with it. It's good! Always a solid low power and soft multifilament. You get a very honest response from the string bed and would recommend it if a premium multi is launching too far for you.

    Prince RipStick 300 - coming soon!

    Just strung it up with VS Touch (Blue) Mains at 54 lbs and Yonex Poly Tour Air at 51 lbs. Hoop looks very thicc compared to my Clash, which is 24mm, which looks massive to the other racquets I've used over the years. Not sure what to expect, but won't be able to test it until Saturday. I'll...

    Review VESSEL Baseline Racquet Backpack and Bag

    I picked this bag up during Christmas as a self-gift because I too am a racquet-holic now and also apparel agnostic (I was using an Adidas bag for a bit until I bought a whole slew of Nike products). I know I have issues :p Now, the good is that it definitely feels luxury, material wise. I do...

    Prince RipStick 300 - coming soon!

    Just when I thought I could escape Prince, they tempt me back. I use a weighted up Clash 100 now (approx 4g to head, 10g to butt), and was using Speedport Tour + Warrior/Beast line for years. I just picked up a Ripstick to collect (for the paintjob). Obviously I will hit with it, so if it hits...

    lol, enabled your inner racquetholic. I just successfully placed an order as well, and it was just one. I tried buying two before so I think they may have set it to max 1 but wasn't displaying correctly (or a right error).

    I just tried to impulse buy one, and it keeps spazzing/freaking out. -edit- better explained; either I'm getting an error that it can't process or I get no error and get sent back to the cart screen

    So I checked ouit the US site (thank you Grinch). I wonder if it's actually a mistake on the website, but the specs are not of a typical Clash 100 101 Head Size and 293g unstrung?
