    Too much ESR -> Balls to the other side fence

    He filmed me and imagine that at guis frame as Fed https://4.bp.blogspot.com/-_BQyZNLTB1s/UR5l0t0TmGI/AAAAAAAAAcY/TOVyFdI46F4/s1600/B98+-+F006.jpg the racquet lags behind significantly more. Swinging towards the ball my hand remains in ESR so the racquet string bed is below the ball but with an...

    Too much ESR -> Balls to the other side fence

    Straight arm forehand. Maybe I am misusing the terms form a scientific point of view. In a nutshell I always thought it is best to try to generate ESR as the ISR will come as a by-product of the SSC. I ended up afer many years with tremendous elasticity in the shoulder and elbow joint such...

    Too much ESR -> Balls to the other side fence

    I recently started training with a former ATP player, now in his mid 50. Have a problem i want to fix. Hit the ball with too much power but mostly flat and very inconsistently. He had a look and said :” well you have only one major problem. Too much ESR, no or limited ISR and as such racquet...

    Technifibre Triax

    I want to thank Greg (g4driver) for introducing me to the Triax/Iso and Triax/Ghostwire. similar power to NG/irukandji or NG/lux Alu, more comfortable (plush, pocketing) and even better Control. i must admit i was reluctant at first to use such a thicker gauge (as i used 1.30 gut). I am happy...

    Technifibre Triax

    Your NG / Element last 20-30h and Triax breaks at 2h? this is very odd... I tried Triax 1.34 amd 1.38 with Isospeed cream and Ghostwire 16. Really happy with it. Used to play NG/ Irukandji and broke mains in 6h

    Fullbed ZX and tension

    I know about how difficult it is to string. I have a Gamma x-Els and it broke 70% of the time when I used the machine pre-stretching. When I pre-stretched it manually and stopped usiong teh machine's option, it breaks 20% of the time. The reason I think is the "jittering" of the machine's head...

    Fullbed ZX and tension

    For the experienced ones: if ZX as mains (fully pre stretched) resembles NG, would it worth trying to pair it with YPTA 4G soft Element ?

    Fullbed ZX and tension

    i have it in the pipeline to test xone/ypta and triax/ypta. I tried the ZX / Gamma tnt 2 but i coule not get used to the launch angle i also tried zx / cream (both fully pre stretched). Incredibly soft but also too powerful Strangely enough i have found full bed oF ZX ( fully pre stretched and...

    Fullbed ZX and tension

    Got GE from KEV/ZX as a result of the pronaiton on srves. Being playing with that for 6 yrs. I have started trying ZX/TNT 2 and yesterday I strung with ZX/Iso cream. By mistake the stringer instead of Iso control sent me ISo Cream. I played and it was quite nice I must say.

    Fullbed ZX and tension

    I have been playing lately due to pain (mild GE) with NG/poly at 26/24kg. Problem is i cut mains at 5-6 hrs max. As a former user of ZX I tried it fullbed at 26/25. Prestretched the life out of it and strung it. I used a winch to prestetch it so you get the idea. First 4 hours felt boardy at...

    It’s time to face my problem...

    I had a meniscus tear in May. Took immediately the arthroscopic surgery and had to spend 2 months of rehab. Imagine i am an athletic built 45 yr old with no other myoskeletal issues. I decided at that period to address many of the physio related imbalances i knew i had and also take advantage of...

    It’s time to face my problem...

    May I suggest something simple? Have seen you and been reading your post for many years. You have been tweaking your racquet form brand to specs continuously. Why don't you find what you think feels comfortable in terms of feel and emanrk from there to 1. work on your footwork 2. work on your...

    Grip question

    Send your head racquet to unstrung customs so they can make you your custom made pallets and therefore you are certain that any racquet you use will have your preferred grip.

    Super humid day on clay courts - string tension for NG/poly setup?

    Let's define control for this instance...or at least let me elaborate on the issue: In highly humid days when I hit the smae way I hit on non humid days on hard courts, the balls sail long. If this is what you mean by control problem then OK. I am not speaking about accuracy of shots here, just...

    Super humid day on clay courts - string tension for NG/poly setup?

    Hi all, i have a huge issue when playing during suoer humid days in clay courts. Nit the best technique and mostly hitting flat with a PS97 strung 55/53 lbs with Klip Legend/Irucandi. I have far too many balls sailing long, the stringbed locks immediately even when newly strung and can’t get...

    Stability = Weight?

    I had an Ultra Tour which i wanted to black out. I sanded off the paint entirely and before painting it i wanted to check the feel without the paint. Since i was afraid to scratch the fibers, i placed all over the raqcuet some head guard tape. Left the specs standard. All i can say is that it...

    Tsitsipas tweets post Coric match

    Nice to read already so many posts (which shows increased interest) for someone the people who post seem to dislike... I am biased in favor of Tsitsi due to being Greek. But aside that, lets face the truth. ... he is 22 ranked 6th. Only thing he has to do is be patient and healthy, remain...

    Mgr/I and racquet length - question for Trav

    With all due respect i personally don't care about shadow swings. I have used your formula in the same context as tennisbike suggested for many years now and definitely thank you for introducing it to us. That said, I am no physics guy so I rely on the more cognizant to make statements. What i...
