    Mayami strings

    I went 46/41. I think I need to tighten it up a tad. Some forehands are landing just beyond the baseline. The gauge is a little thicker than the 18g TBS I was using beforehand. I’m sure this has some effect on it as well.

    Mayami strings

    Recommended tension? I usually go full bed poly at 43lbs whether it's FireWire Boost or TBS. Stringing up Big Spin mains and Magic Twist crosses tomorrow. Should I aim for 46/40 or how does one go about different tensions when they haven't done so before?

    Softer hybrid than FireWire Boost?

    Hyper G Soft 18g at 46lbs is beautiful. Let’s see how long it lasts ...

    Mayami strings

    Ordered some sets yesterday. Excited to give it a go. My plan is "Big Twist", probably go 47/43. Do you feel it is softer than FireWire?

    Yonex VCORE Pro 97HD... Strings???

    Anyone try any Mayami strings in this stick yet? My go to has been Firewire Boost @ 45lbs but I need something softer dues to shoulder issues.

    Mayami strings

    My go to setup in my VCore Pro HD is Firewire Boost 18g strung around 45lbs. However with some lingering shoulder issues, I am trying some new setups. I recently tried Black Knight/Ghostwire at 45lbs and after a few hours I dislike it. Much lower powered than Boost and very boardy. Any...

    Softer hybrid than FireWire Boost?

    Good to know, thanks. I’ve hit with it for roughly 3 hours so maybe next time out it’ll feel better. I used PTP in my old EZONE but have yet to try in my current Pro HD. I did enjoy it and honestly should give it a try again. Thanks.

    Softer hybrid than FireWire Boost?

    Recently tried Black Knight and Ghostwire in a hybrid at 43lbs. To me it felt boardy and just as stiff as the FireWire Boost. On to the next.

    Softer hybrid than FireWire Boost?

    On avg between the two setups, how much time to get you before restringing? What tension do you typically use?

    Softer hybrid than FireWire Boost?

    Black Knight is the only poly I have not tried from them. Thanks.

    Softer hybrid than FireWire Boost?

    I have been using this setup in 18g for the last year plus. It’s awesome. Love everything about it. However, I have a shoulder that will eventually need some work, (bone spur and separated AC joint). Until I get around to having that worked on, what is a comparable setup that I could go with to...

    Yonex VCore Pro 97 HD review...

    Most recently tried Tour Bite 19g at 46lbs, full bed. Meh. Still felt like a board like the last time I tried TB. Hyper-G felt better at the same tension until the 10 hour mark, then elbow started barking. Firewire Boost is next up. Any try PTP?

    Used Boost 17g in my DR98’s at 46lbs. Loved it. Have yet to try it in my VCore Pro HD. Wish they made a 19g ..

    So is the general consensus to size down half size or stick true to size?

    Vapor Cage 4 vs Cage 3

    I’ve had two pairs of 3’s. The first ones weren’t terrible until a couple months in where my feet really started to hurt. Bought a second pair on sale and those have destroyed my feet. I’ve worn them four times and I’m done with them. The tops of my toes are rubbed raw and the side of my foot...

    Vapor Cage 4 vs Cage 3

    I have used the Cage 3 for a while now and to be honest, I don’t find it the most comfortable shoe. It works, it’s durable, but not very comfortable to me. I wanted to like the GP Turbo, but it did not work with my foot. My normal size was a little cramped, and sizing up creates way too much...

    Nike Turbo GP Information

    I ordered an 11.5 as that’s my normal size and a 12. 11.5 was snug in the toebox and 12 felt great but was too big and heel kept sliding. I ended up sending them both back because I felt I was just trying to settle on one vs the other when neither fit correctly. They were very comfortable...

    Nike Turbo GP Information

    What Cage are you wearing? I have worn the 3’s and they aren’t the most comfortable shoe to me. I’ve wanted to try the Vapor Cage but it just gets old ordering shoes trying them on and sending them back over and over again.

    Nike Turbo GP Information

    Did the toe box loosen up and stretch out after some hours or has it always remained snug? I haven't worn mine to play in, just around the house but I am on the fence on whether to keep them or send them back. The length isn't bad, but the compression on the toes is annoying.

    Nike Turbo GP Information

    Ordered a 11.5 (normal size), and a 12. The 11.5 has enough room, but like others have mentioned, does feel a little cramped with the extra padding. It's mainly because of the extra padding on top of the toes were it feels cramped, not the length of the shoe box to me. The 12's feel more...

    Thank you. I would venture to guess that padding on top of the toes feels a lot nicer than the stiffness of the Cage.

    I wear an 11.5 in Cage 3’s. There’s a good amount of room in the toebox where I could probably have worn an11. With that being said and those they have worn both, do you think I would be safe in an 11.5?

    Wilson Rush Pro 3 vs Cage 4

    Has anyone tried both of these? I played in the Wilson’s last summer and really liked them. Once I burnt through them I used the Cage 3’s and I recently burnt through those as well. I was thinking about going back to the Wilson’s or trying out the new 4’s.
