    What is the point of demos?

    Your point shows one of the many variables that go into choosing a racquet. I think many posters string a demo with their string of choice as well as add lead when trying something new. There are so many quality frames and strings on the market that demoing becomes a very complex process.

    Wilson t 2000

    He always had a lot of cash in hand when paying. I don’t remember a big tip but would pay whatever requested.

    Wilson t 2000

    Hi @Rabbit I strung some for Connors in the early 80s when I worked at Turnberry Isle in Miami. Connors had me string his T2000s at 58 pounds with Babolat VS in a very thin gauge. It was at least 17g if I remember. I did tube the mains and the 90 degree turns. I was afraid every time I pulled...

    Blade V8 Official Thread.

    Is that in Europe and/or online? I know that the Blade line is more extensive in Europe than the US.

    Blade V8 Official Thread.

    Hello @danbrenner Good question. Raonic’s new Blades were posted on IG today so maybe around the same timeframe of the release in September 1.

    Blade V8 Official Thread.

    The 100 is not included in the initial launch of the new v8 Blades. Only the 100L, 104, 98 16x19 and 98 18x20

    It does not. More of a “satin” finish in my opinion. Not glossy nor matte.

    Blade V8 Official Thread.

    We've experienced trouble getting grommet availability from multiple manufacturers at our pro shop. No explanation from the reps why.

    Blade V8 Official Thread.

    I’ve strung the new v8 Blades and feel that the grommets are the same in both the v7 and v8.

    Best playing metal racket you've used?

    Hello @TennisHound that was a 65 sq in racquet. Remember the Head Master (blue throat piece) which seemed even smaller?

    Wilson Sony Smart Sensor Butt Caps

    I thought that the Sony Smart Sensor works on multiple butt caps besides Wilson. Aren’t Yonex and Prince compatible as well? This review from the good folks at TW should help

    Wilson Pro Labs: Blade Pro Official Thread

    I just strung up my new Blade Pro 16x19. It is identical to my Silver & Black Blade PJ H22 in every aspect including playability, beam width and string spacing. Even the bumper guard and grommets are identical. The only difference is my older H22 came with a ProStaff butt cap as opposed to the...

    Limited Edition Baiardo

    I agree that they were sold. Doubtful that they would ship to the US.

    Limited Edition Baiardo

    I know that Wilson sells tournament used Baiardos in the US from US tournaments where they are used. Probably doubtful that limited editions used at the French Open would be available to US Wilson accounts.

    Limited Edition Baiardo

    There was only 25 made for the French Open use. Would love to have it in a shop.

    Wilson Pro Stock Line

    Hello @topspn I think the marketing efforts could be similar to the Wilson custom painted frames. I feel that less invested by Wilson would allow them to work with lower sales goals on the Pro Lab frames. They surely realize that it is a niche market although highly knowledgable about gear.

    Return of the Burn 2020?

    I was told that the Burns in the US are to be Spin Effect only with the 100S, 100LS and 100ULS. Just saw that the Burn 100 will be back. I stand corrected!
