    Can't wait for the Rexxxer review - It's a string I've been wanting to try for a while now. Can you tell it has an oval construction or is it more of a gimmick?

    Have you dabbled with Rexxxer yet? - assuming that's the green reel

    It sounds like you should stick with the pro. If you have the technique/fitness/footwork to utilise the higher static weight & swing weight of the Pro consistently, it doesn't surprise me that you find more comfort and spin as you can allow the racket to do more of the work and thus play more...

    Blade V8 Official Thread.

    I mean ALU power isn't exactly Hyper-G but whatever floats your boats I guess! So what's the other string? Black 4G?

    Head Gravity

    Still sounds like a stringing issue to me, I demo'd both the 2021 Tour and Pro together and the only difference I noticed was the beam width. I've had real mixed results getting my Ultra Tour's strung (same string & tension) but by different people. One felt normal whereas the other felt like...

    Blade V8 Official Thread.

    Its funny you say about Alu Power Black, I noticed the other day that Element black is already available but exclusively from one retailer (only in 1.28 gauge). Either I completely missed the Element black boat and its old news, or maybe Lux are releasing multiple black versions of their strings?

    One handed backhand players, favorite/best rackets?

    For me there have been two stand out rackets: 1. Babolat Pure Strike 18x20 (2nd gen) 2. Gravity Tour

    Head Gravity

    Similar for me, I've always played with the main logo facing up on all my rackets since I was a kid through habitat/supposition (green/yellow side for FH on the 2021 Gravity's). Sometimes I purposefully switch it up but I will always go back the 'correct' side at the next point. I've even got...

    Wilson Pro Labs: Ultra Pro (16x19) Official Thread

    My pro shop hid the lead for me and didn’t change the grommets or cause any damage in the process, so it’s possible!

    Head Gravity

    Finally got some decent hours in with my Gravity Tours including league matches this week (I wanted to wait until I played more competitive matches before I replied as I find it removes that honeymoon bias when you’re playing real scenarios and not thinking about the racket in hand). My...

    Jolly can you compare Lux element to BK? I’m loving element but don’t know if I want to commit to the consistent outlay of $$$

    Wilson Pro Labs: Ultra Pro (16x19) Official Thread

    The UT and UP (18x20) play exactly the same, its only a cosmetic change. Some people have reported that the UP feels a point or two stiffer in comparison to the UT which some believe is due to the change in paint. However, IMO playing both side by side, matched, same string etc etc, I couldn't...

    Did you manage to see how the balance and SW measured up?

    Head Gravity

    Cheers pal! The difference in weight will depend on the brand and in fact, the Kimony Techni leather grip's that I added to my GT's are lighter than the stock grips by 2 and 4.7 g respectively so I had to re-add weight to the handle to ensure they were still matched. In my experience though...

    Head Gravity

    Unfortunately I never got to play this weekend. I woke up with a pulled muscle in my neck so I’m just stuck with staring at my GT’s. The grip though is all personal preference. I’ve used leather grips on all my rackets for the past 3 years (numerous brands but recently moved to, and preferred...

    I was meant to be playing this evening but it’s been called off because of the rain. Hopefully the weekend isn’t a wash out.

    Ye the SW does seem low - I will take them out for a hit tomorrow (weather depending) and bring some lead/blue tac with me to play around with to see how it feels. I will try and pop some photos on also!

    Head Gravity

    So I just got off the phone with my pro-shop and I'm picking up my two matched Gravity Tours (2021) tomorrow. The spec's are below but already I'm thinking it needs weight in the head and counter weight in the handle? Unstrung 306 g / 285 sw / 31.9 cm Strung (with Luxilon Element - without OG &...

    Did you play with Diadem Solstice Power in your Gravity's? I'm interested to hear how it plays as it could be a good match on paper.
