    Blade V8 Official Thread.

    It is somewhat limited. Offered only in Europe for a while until a bunch of people on these forums started buying them all and having them sent to the the US so a few US retailers now have them.

    Racket Shipping Boxes Help

    You have to ask someone at the post office for the regular priority boxes, they still have them in the back. Or like MD said just order them online.

    Way too beefy for my tastes. I like the whip.

    Diary of a Racketaholic

    The holicness continues….a while back I traded my Eurostaff for a ET(the Eurostaff felt a tad sluggish to me), been playing the ET and mixing in the Clash again for kicks. Just picked up a pair of Aero Storms for cheap(16x20 giggity) and been messing with those. But this damn Briffidi SW1 had me...

    Also need to take Wilson QC into account here. One of my Clash 100s is 321 swing weight.

    which tennis shoes have the most cushioning?

    Forgot the breathability. Terrible. Wet socks all day.

    Ultimate string of choice !

    While not thicker per se it definitely weighs more. If they released a 1.20, it would be magic.

    I’m the same but I wear them anyway because I can’t stand glasses. I hate glasses so much I never even wear sunglasses.

    Big time vision issues here, I’m actually legally blind without glasses/contacts. And usually lights haven’t been upgraded and are quite terrible, you can definitely tell the difference between good lighting and bad, I hated playing at night because of the reasons you mentioned until I played at...

    which tennis shoes have the most cushioning?

    I do agree. Also don’t wear them because of the shallow toe box.

    which tennis shoes have the most cushioning?

    Maybe it didn’t have enough cushioning? Lol. Or too much!

    Agree with everything here. Wanted to like the 360+ but it was not good. Very vague.

    Anyone in here mess with the prestige tour? $149 is tempting.

    Something better than Tourna Grip?

    Dry Grap is kinda like super grap/Wilson pro and Volkl vdry had a baby. It’s dry but has a little bit of tack to it. Also pretty durable as well.

    Something better than Tourna Grip?

    I use V-Dry but only because it comes in a 30 pack. If Yonex dry grap came in a 30 I’d be using that no question. Dry grap is the best.

    Please help me pick a pair of new shoes...

    initial impressions of the NB 996v4.5 are pretty good. It’s a great lightweight shoe, there’s not a ton of cushioning, it seems quite durable for a lighter shoe as well. I really like the fit as well. I did have some heel pain on my left foot but overall I’m pleased so far. Time will tell though.

    Please help me pick a pair of new shoes...

    Just got the NB 996v4.5 and I’ve worn some of the shoes on the list-Cage4, GP turbo, GR8 and including the blue shield 5. Will be using the NB for the first time today. I’ll report initial thoughts. The GP would be perfect if they had a higher toe box and were more breathable. They could also...

    Tennis Warehouse Playtest: NEW colors of Yonex POLYTOUR REV!!!

    For me yes. The white feels softer and more pocketing. And I strung it 1 pound higher than the purple.
