    Edberg's racquet in 2014

    Tribesmen... it's fine, I really understood what you were saying, I was just messing around with you a bit... Instead of us buying the new marketing racquets, we should try and buy what is still available and made, more or less like in the old days, Wilson Pro Staff 6.0 85, Wilson Pro Staff 6.1...

    String for Spin effect racquets

    So there are some spin effect racquets around... But what about strings to use with them? Would mono/poly be the best compromise or something more posh? Will the open patterns make people use thicker gauge? Will the use of synth gut be the norm for these strings on the "common player's"...

    Federer uses a new string?

    I took a closer look on the 1st pic... I was wrong. You have to look on the shaded part of the string to confirm is the same setup as stated by Pickle9.

    What's The Thinnest Gauge You Can Use?

    I've played with Luxilon Ace 112 and loved it... too expensive to be a regular user though, which is a shame.

    2014 Wilson Prostaff 90

    People buy a racquet for their visual appeal?! The pros don't seem to mind why would you... because they are paid for? If they are paid for, then I think they could manage to ask for a special/exclusive PJ to them... not only the racquets themselves. Most classic racquets that are raved...

    Vijay Amritraj considers Rod Laver the greatest

    The old question who is the better of All Times? Simple answer... it depends whom you ask. It's all to do with generation and personal tastes. Nothing else. If it was only the number of titles... then tennis wouldn't be emotional, it would be mechanical. So if Vijay Amritraj says...

    Luke Jensen said Rafa went heavier and Roger bigger

    Actually, if I remember correctly, he said it was basically the same since 2002 so, witch model would it be? Pro Staff 90?

    Djokovic SIMULATING injury against Ferrer???

    It was Emanuel Couto but... I get your point... Port wine doesn't make you drunk if you drink it correctly, I should know :) And yes, I agree they're not the best but, it's what we have. I think they were a dash on Djokovic's side rather than taking a more neutral approach for the game...

    Djokovic SIMULATING injury against Ferrer???

    It looks like someone doesn't like others opinions and prefers a direct approach/attack... As you shoukd know, Djokovic is well known for simulating injuries. And I still think he was faking.

    Why mostly about racquets?

    I know it is easier to study about racquets but... Since most pro's are creatures of habit, how about we gather a bit and try to seek old strings and apparel (shoes and what have you) habits? It can be a bit more difficult but refreshing :)

    More spin from a poly

    1- How about set a higher tension on the mains and, keep with the 17 guage X-One Biphase? 2- Use 18 gauge X-One Biphase on the mains, since you are not a string breaker. 3- Again, since you are not a string breaker, stay away from poly.

    Any thoughts on these two racquets? Has anyone played with them? The differences and similarities? Wil a Black Ace be comfortable to the arm, as the Kinetics are reportedly good for?

    How IG Prestige Mid feels?

    If you want a 1980's racquet buy one... Maybe playtesters were saying that it has the same feel but, according to modern sticks. I'm pretty sure the Prestige will be always the Prestige, it won't feel like 1980's or 1990's versions because materials have changed. But they will still be...

    Federer Injures Back

    Rafa switches to a heavier racquet!

    Is Prince in trouble?

    Correct me if I'm wrong but are you implying that building a 2-piece racquet with no grommets (the More range) and O-ports aren't new things? How about Wilson's players frames? They have had the same basic design for years... only changing colors... people don't seem to care about technology...
