    More comfort than ezone 98

    I think the newest ezone 98 (not the tour) is considered a pretty comfortable racket, but after demoing it it's a little harsher on off centers than my Ai98. I tested them side by side both at 45 lbs and played a couple long grinding matches on the ezone 98. The rackets look almost identical...

    Soft main/poly cross vs poly main/soft cross

    I got into a debate with my wife and I'm looking for clarification on why you would use a poly main with a soft cross. Me: I'm a big gut main/poly cross guy because of the hybrid spin potential, comfort, and low friction. I've run many of these combos but never the reverse of this. Her: She...
