    Graphene Speeds MP and Pro - Mold Question

    Do they share the same mold? Is the only difference the SW, balance, and static weight? If I lead and customize the MP to a stick that shares similar specs as the Pro, will the racquet be very similar to the Pro except with a more open string pattern? I am looking to get a racquet with more...

    Looking for a poly - Suggestions needed

    I am looking for a polyester string that has a crisp feel of a Luxilon ALU Power, but is less stiff. I also do not want a string that has a plasticy and mushy feel. So middle of the road stiffness, not overly soft but not as stiff as a Lux ALU...with the pop and crispness of a ALU. Fire away

    Tsonga String

    Seems like he has gone back to full poly in the clay court season. Does anyone know how long he was playtesting the gut/poly hybrid? It seemed like he was doing that in Australia and might have given up due to his lackluster start to the year. Or is this just a case of playing full poly on the...

    Can anyone comment on what the difference between the 2 setups might be? I currently use the VS Touch/ALU but the tension maintenance of the ALU is poor and I am finding myself playing with a racquet that has lost its pop and precision after about 10-12 hours of hitting. By the time I need to...

    I was wondering if people out there with experience playing all 3 can comment on what each of the 3 do well and what their weaknesses are as well. I'm currently using the Speed Pro and am pretty content but was curious as to see what the other 2 play like in comparison.
