    Racquet selling question

    Hello all, If selling a racquet whether here or elsewhere, are pics of serial # necessary? I remember a few years back when people were selling racquets, they had pics of serial #s when selling. I think it was due to fake models being sold.

    New racquets from older models worth anything?

    From APDGT to...

    I'm getting older and my playing style needs to change a little. Currently playing with APDGT with a smaller grip 4 1/4 for that extra spin with an overgrip and 58lbs on Babolat black strings.

    Goodbye Babolat..

    Well, it's been fun for while with Babolat and a lot of hype. Went through the pure drives, aeropros, non cortex, and cortex. I haven't played well for quite a while, but today, I went back to my old Head iRadical. It's almost 10 yrs old, I played better than I ever did. It's time to upgrade and...

    Lendl's legionnaire's cap

    Hey all, I am looking for that style of hat. Does anyone know where to buy one? I've searched the web and can't find that particular look. Not looking for a baseball cap with flaps (I have this one, but it doesn't split the flap and it covers my ears), but more of a flat top and the flaps go...

    Recommend me strings for my K90 Tour..

    I play with a western forehand and 1hbh. My first string job on it was Gamma TNT, I think? It felt great for a few hours but during a hardcore power rally, I felt it loosen up, and now it just gets by as a racquet. Strung at 57lbs. Now, I'm looking for control again and durability, meaning no...

    Adding weight to an APD

    Looking to give it a little more plow through. If I add lead tape, do they sell this at hardware stores or do I need to go to a tennis shop....and at what position should I place the strips at and how much of it? 3 and 9 position or 12 or all of the above?

    KPS 88 - Too much power?

    Its a nice racquet but my shots have flattened a bit so the question is... Should I need more spin to bring it down? OR Should I tighten the tension? Current tension is 55lbs on Gamma. Usually play with a western grip and timing is a bit off too.

    How do you hold your KPS88 and K90?

    Hello all, Just wondering how do you hold your racquet during a forehand swing? near the end of the handle or choked up a bit? Little pinky finger barely dangling at the bottom? And why? Is it for more control? more snap of the wrist?

    Egg shaped head or inverted bridge racquet

    Would these racquets do well in todays game? Some of the greats used them in the 80s and 90s. Give them 95-100 sq...and how would these current players on tour do? There must some kind of advantage to them, right? Lendl, Becker, and Wilander did very well with these types of racquets after all...

    Dead strings

I was playing with an APD...about teh same year the APDC came out and had the original PHT strings on them. I...

    K95 to KPS88 or ......

    Hello loyal Wilsonians, How many of you started with a K61 95 or K90 or KPS88 and moved to one of the other and why? I demoed the 95 and 90 and like the 90 a little in serve and backhand. Unable to demo an 88, but have read some moved to teh racquet while others stayed.

    Tennis ball decision

    Are the pros superstitious when it come to using a particular ball or number??? Watching the pros as the ball person gives them 2-3 balls, they seem to pick the two and get rid of the third, kinda studies it. Does anyone know what they are looking for in a ball?
