    The Cult of PT57

    Can you explain what you saw in the difference in quality? Are the more brittle or flimsy? thinking of getting 291As grommets casue I'm looking for red grommets but if they're that bad I'll just go for the clear Tk293As...

    The Cult of PT57

    Honestly, no it probably does not make me play better relative to the price point compared to a comparable retail racket. I personally got it as a mix between my fascination with rare racquets and wanting to try what Andy Murray uses. I personally found it worth the investment so far.

    Slinger tennis ball machine

    I'm almost at the 1 year mark with mine, using it about once/week average apart from a couple of the wet winter months when I took some time off tennis. Nothing broken yet and happy with my investment still. It does enough for me to get some reps and feeds. Obviously not as feature packed as a...

    The Cult of PT57

    Been hitting with 16x19 PT57a recently. Probably still in my honeymoon period, but having such a blast hitting with it. Current specs are 334gm/31.4cm balance and 325 SW. Definitely lower on the power spectrum compared to some modern frames but far from underpowered. Using gut poly hybrid...

    does ANYBODY use the wilson ultra 100?

    I personally haven't used one but Mike Trice, who I've seen on the Essential Tennis Youtube matchplay videos looks like he switched to the newest Ultra 100 from previously using some version of the Clash so there are some people out there who like it.

    New Yonex Vcore (for 2020 or 2021 ?)

    maybe that as well. I don't knoow what color stencil to put on blue strings. White stencil or Black stencil. I feel like more often I see black stencil on black or blue strings. Or is a red stencil easily visible on like Blue YPTP...

    Been using the Vcore 98+ for the past 5-6 weeks or so and planned to try out the new line. Excited that TW is doing a playtest for this new one. Hope to get in.

    New Yonex Vcore (for 2020 or 2021 ?)

    Wish I tried the SV98. I wanna try the VCore 98 in the 16x20. Only the 95 is 16x20 still :(

    New Yonex Vcore (for 2020 or 2021 ?)

    Head shape seems more rounded at the top of the hoop which they said is a change in the video. Other changes they mentioned is (rough summary): -the use of more namd in additional parts of the frame/layout. -Bites the ball better better in this version. Think this is related to more spin than...

    Yonex Ezone +

    Got some decent enough time with both the VC98+ and Ezone98+ to share my impressions. I'm a 4.0 lefty and I play with mostly other 4.0 players (some may be borderline 4.5) and the occasional lower level players if I go to meetups to play some doubles. I've been trying to be a bit more attack...

    Yonex Ezone +

    Yeah I'm a similar height and fairly athletic as well. I'm still getting used the the extended length but I'll think it'll help my game in the long run. Other than returns, , I don't really notice a struggle in defense if I'm running down balls. I'm struggling more on being offensive and keeping...

    Yonex Ezone +

    I think I'm on the fence right now about making the permanent switch to the ezone 98+ too. Used the Dr98 Standard length for a long time before dabbling with h22/blade pros. Being not a very tall guy, the extra half inch does give me a bit more pace on the serve which I like. Then on...

    been hitting with the ezone 98 plus and it's been pleasant. Dunno if I should try the standard length 305g and add soem weight or tour version cause I already have my DR98s...

    Diary of a Racketaholic

    Yeah my point about the TW was more the only "data-driven" factor I could point to why I feel like I didn't jive with a certain racquet more than anything. Might just be completely personal too and not twistweight.

    Diary of a Racketaholic

    When I owned a 2016 Pure Aero Play, I had some days I really clicked with it but some days it felt like a real clunker but I let go of it cause someone offered me a good price for it and the Play chip/connectivity was really clunky for me. Picked up a '19 PA last year to see if I could click...

    I also did not include the pivot assembly in my weight balance. Not sure exactly where the additional 3-4 points come from my setup either but for now, just adjusting for it has been good enough for me.

    Diary of a Racketaholic

    Yeah I used the Swingtool app and @Irvin 's jig setup (video linked below) with minor differences on what I had available/bought and compared my measurements to a PTC machine to get within 3-4 SW points of an actual SW machine. I measured using multiple frames and got consistently within 3-4...

    Uniqlo apparel

    The fit is very nice and comfy and the inseam is perfect length for me as well. While the legs aren't thin enough to be slim fit, they dont flare out and are more straight fitting and don't flare out a lot which like some other shorts I own, which I like a lot for tennis and for running. I also...

    good observation. I honestly didn't pay attention to the bottom half the hoop too much. The mains spacing doesn't seem to have changed but they changed the spacing for some of the crosses on the bottom half of the hoop. Maybe there are various drilling patterns for the 16x19 model and they chose...

    Okay. I did the science/data gathering and went to the stringer's to compare my Swingweight measurements on my cheap DIY setup versus a PTC machine. Here are the results. My measurements were a bit high over the board all across, but somewhat consistently high which is a good sign, so I can...

    Few reasons. 1. The collector in me doesn't want to scratch up the prettier looking V6 paintjobs. 2. The tennis player in me wanted extra frames to have in the bag to mess with specs and string options . 3. The collector and player in me care less about the v7 paintjob than the v6 ones so if I...

    From all the reviews and impressions by people in this thread echo my impressions and experience that I have had with my H22s. From the eye test (picture above) and the feel test (all the impressions here so far), it's an H22. I'm not doing a taste test. I do not have access to an RDC, and you...

    Not to spoil your parade, you might want that SW checked out if you have the Swingtool app. The one I have with that similar spec to yours is an estimated 308 SW with swingtool app. When comparing that to what others have measured, seems to be around the higher side of SW despite the lighter...
