    So, Here's my shoe history. Nerve damage in both my feet from about four years ago makes it hard to pick shoes. Here's what I've worn and what I'm looking for... Worn (since the injuries): Asics GR6 - didn't like the stiffness of the sole all the way to the front or the shape of the shoe...

    Gut not as stretchy as I thought...

    So, as an experiment, I bought some Klip gut to hybrid with poly crosses. I put off stringing with it because I thought it'd be stretchy like Prince Lightning (which is so stretchy that it gets chewed up in my Klippermate every time I string with it - I have to retension and retension, and the...

    From multi-poly to gut-poly - tension difference? Help needed.

    OK, I've never played with gut but decided to bite the bullet and experiment. My current setup is 50# mains and crosses: Multi-Feel 16 mains, Proline X 1.25 crosses. The gut setup will be Klip Legend 16 mains with the same cross. How should I set up the tension to keep the power level the...

    Are you guys doing a review of the Yonex PC Fusion Rev 4?

    Anyone pick up a pair of Yonex PC Fusion Rev 4's yet?

    I'm just curious. The 3's fit me well. I realize it's not a popular shoe, and I may be posting into the void. Fingers crossed someone has tried them on and can compare to some other shoe.

    Just scored...

    ...a 1986 Kneissl White Star Pro Masters. No idea if it's in the kind of shape I think it is from the pictures on the auction site, but I'm hopeful. Grip looks good, buttcap looks good, and it doesn't appear to have the normal amount of head-rash. Very excited, as I played with the 1985...

    How easy it is to forget that there were some good players around, 2002-2004

    I just stumbled on this video of Nalbandian's run through Nadal, Djokovic, and Federer in 2007, remembering that he had really struggled that year and that his best years were well behind him. The guy just had lovely ballstriking.

    Let the MultiFeel-poly experiment begin...

    I've been playing around with poly-poly, but I am just too lazy to restring if it's not broken, so I decided to experiment a bit with MultiFeel 16 and poly crosses in my XTC 305s, which are 18x19. First up, a cross I know, Kirschbaum Proline X 1.25. I was going to string at 53 mains / 51...

    Looking for a players' 100 or 98. Advice appreciated.

    I am most comfortable with mids, but have experimented with the Dunlop Bio 200 Plus (oldest son claimed them) and the Head Graphene Extreme Pro (youngest son claimed them). Of those two, the best was the Extreme, though I never really warmed up to it on serve. It seemed a little distant on the...

    Looking for shoes like the Head Nitro/NZZZO

    I have a pair of these Head shoes, and they are the only shoes that seem to properly support my injured feet. Tried more cushioning, but the shoes that feature forefoot cushioning feel sloppy and end up hurting my feet even more. Does anyone with experience with the Heads have other shoes that...

    Denied Greatness by Injury. Who was most "robbed?"

    I think it is safe to say that we have lived through an era in which the durability of the great players until the age of 30 at least has reached new levels, but it's the talented ones who limped away from the game that fascinate me at times. What if one of these guys had not been struck down...

    Raptor IV to Raptor Evo fit question...

    Maybe I'm just not reading well, but I don't see much conclusive about the length question. Raptor IV's are the best fitting shoes I've ever worn and I wear size 10.5. Is the toe box in the Raptor Evo so short and/or low that I should get size 11? I am worried about jamming. Those of you...

    What Nick Kyrgios needs...

    Yes, I know this thread may just elicit a bunch of silly or outright negative comments about what Kyrgios "really" needs, but in spite of his obvious disrespect for everyone and everything, I like his game and think there could be hope if... a very patient (on the court, that is) former player...

    Not a single WTF doubles thread, which is sad.

    Well, I'm starting one on the last day of the tournament. There are some amazing doubles teams in this tournament, and after watching Rojer-Tecau dismantle the Bryans yesterday (for the first time in 7 tries) and tuning in today to watch them win the tournament, I have to say I've watched some...

    Head Graphene Extreme Pro - 1st Thoughts, Ongoing Review

    About me: 4.0-4.5 player, old enough to remember watching McEnroe-Borg and have been really into tennis for the 1984 season, hit with a lot of topspin (so I've been told), one-handed backhand, have traditionally stuck to players' racquets. Currently in the rotation: 4D100, Six.One 16x18. I...

    Time to experiment: racquets like the PDR 2012?

    Over the past three weekends, I've had the opportunity to play with the PDR 2012 and EXO3 Black. I was pleasantly surprised to find that neither is the rocket launcher I thought they'd be, but definitely preferred the additional weight of the PDR. Both will take some getting used to when...

    Gamma or Alpha?

    I know, I know... this thread has been done. Still, I have some specific questions that are unclearly answered in the other threads. I have been stringing on a Klippermate for years, and want to upgrade slightly to something with fixed clamps. That has me looking at the Alpha Pioneer DC Plus...

    2014 six.one 95 16x18, first impressions

    I ordered them based on assumptions and reviews, having hit with other six.ones over the years. They arrived from TW this afternoon, and I'm sitting here staring at them waiting for Saturday when I can go test them out. Observations: 1. The paint job is much nicer looking in person than on...

    90-95, crisp, best stability

    90-95, crisp, best stability? I have plush and pretty stable with the Becker London Tour. I have the Dunlop 4D100 - that's not a very stable stick, but if I swing it quickly enough it can handle some pretty hard hitting. I want something crisper than the Becker and with a heck of a lot more...

    Would quicker matches improve tennis ratings?

    As a product, professional tennis, to any but those likely to respond to this post, is apparently a snoozer. Simply put, would the changes to the game resulting from shortening the time between points change the game in a way that would improve its marketability?

    Finding a crisper, more spin friendly racquet...

    As I look at the racquets in my closet, I find that they are all very similar. In fact, they are so similar that I can switch between them without really losing a beat. Here's what I have, in order of most frequently played: Dunlop 4D100 Boris Becker London Tour Dunlop M-Fil 200 Prince NXG...

    Thoughts on the Australian Open

    First, the boy who cried wolf actually saw one today and no one believed him, including many on this board even after he clearly demonstrated he was playing injured. The timing of the MTO was not surprising to anyone, and the booing was appropriate, if not for today then for the many previous...

    Dunlop Bio 200 Plus - Comments, Review

    I've always preferred smaller racquets, and have generally played better with them against people of skill equal to mine. I'm a 4.0+ playing in a 4.5 league. Today, for the first time, I played with a 100 - the Dunlop Bio 200 Plus. Having read the TW review when it first came out, and seen it...

    Good Sportsmanship - post your favorite clip

    With the furor about Raonic's poor sportsmanship in the Rogers Cup, I think it'd be good to show people doing the opposite. Our sport is, after all, one of honesty and integrity. This isn't my favorite, but it's recent and did occur at an important moment...

    Longest Lasting Non-Gut Control...

    I really want to like synthetic gut, but as I play the string more and more - PSGO, OGSM - I find that the control and feel go south a little more than half way through the life of the string. Apparently, I'm more sensitive to it now than I was years ago. It's more noticeable than poly...

    Ruining, and then fixing, a racquet.

    I don't know if this will help anyone, because perhaps it's easier knowledge to come by for most of you, but over the last year I went through an annoying experience with racquets and thought I'd share. What started it? I put a leather grip on my Dunlop M-Fil 200 (18x20). Prior to getting the...
