    Can I play the best tennis of my life with a 200g?

    Tennis is currently under lockdown in Switzerland, unless your 16th birthday is still ahead of you... as I don’t really qualify, all I can do, is go hit balls against the wall... took out one of my 200g’s... one that actually has relatively current strings in... (as opposed to me usually playing...

    Can I play the best tennis of my life with a 200g?

    I can’t really say too much about the 200g, but assuming you’re talking about the McEnroe/ Graf racket from the eighties, I can add 2 things: one: for a while now I use a PS85 as my main stick and love it! I think playing it has improved my game and technique. While it is a totally different...

    Similar feel to Wilson Pro Overgrip, but a bit thicker?

    Thanks a lot everyone. I ordered the Signum pro ultra tac and hope that I will like it... will let you know.

    Similar feel to Wilson Pro Overgrip, but a bit thicker?

    Hello experts.. is there a overgrip outthere, that is similar in feel and performance to the Wilson Pro, but a bit thicker? Many thanks.

    Another old beauty: Völkl Match FCS

    Alternatively, if you use a computer, you can host pics on Google photos, make them Public (or have one album for public pics), open the pic, right click inside and ‘copy image URL’ (or image address or something of the likes), then paste that link in using the ‘insert pic button’ which creates...

    School me: Wilson Hyper Carbon Pro Staff Tour 95

    Poor, poor racket! Beaten up pretty bad and then publicly embarrassed with this stringjob! But on a serious note: how does a racket strung like this actually play?

    Best items you found at thrift stores (Goodwill)?

    Was at it again after a long while.... a few weeks back actually I found to Head Prestige LM Mid Plus in a very nice condition, almost no scratches, other then the previous owner having marked them in the throat area. Yesterday however I went to a place I do not often go to... but maybe should...

    School me: Wilson Hyper Carbon Pro Staff Tour 95

    Nice... though the thread title is a bit misleading. I suppose, this is the post that tells it: https://tt.tennis-warehouse.com/index.php?threads/fake-prostaff-tour-95.181914/post-2123292 I will double check my racket, but as I am based in Switzerland it would make sense if it was the European...

    Wilson t4000

    The T-5000 dampener looks much like what later Lacoste rackets also featured! Right? I've never seen any T-4000 and T-5000 in real life, not even in pics before!

    School me: Wilson Hyper Carbon Pro Staff Tour 95

    I totally agree, the ROK 93 seems to be the little brother of the Tour 95! I wasn’t aware that the PS HC Tour 95 came in 2 string patterns until recently... seems I have the other (18x20) pattern! Does anyone know why both molds (ROK 93 and PS HC Tour 95) seem to have been very short lived? Did...

    Classic Racket Pics

    Well, the shipping cost would be not astronomically high, but the racket is not in the best shape and the grip size rather big. does anyone know if any other pallets would fit the hairpin? If anyone elsehas one of those too many, let me know! Happy to trade also!

    Racquet recommendation

    Angell TC95 Custom! Advantage is that if you order the heaviest version, you can play around with weight and balance to your liking! Or just ask for extra weights when you order lighter specs!

    THE MIGHTY PRO STAFF 90 THREAD

    I have one of those TC90’s! I love it! Can’t really say how it is in comparison to a PS90, as I haven’t played the 90 in years since switching to the PS85 a few years back... but where the Wilson PS are crisp, stiff and giving very direct feedback, the Angell is so soft and buttery...great for...

    I was wondering too, but thought that maybe there is just enough difference between the classic and the Vollaix version. Also Brian is doing this more as a hobby and hopefully is just flying under the radar! I love his designs, his dedication and the final products! And honestly i font see...

    I like Google Photos, especially ‚cause you can just sync pics from your mobile and easily share the . With the Tapatalk App you can directly upload pics from your phone. What I hate to see in the forum is: And similar!

    I find it it just horrible how Nike came up with these cheap knock-offs of beautiful https://vollaix.com/t/spring-2020Vollaix Shirt designs! Check out the fall and lights out collections too! Love the lights out, not yet copied by Nike LOL https://instagram.com/vollaix?igshid=1r2xg645x2uik...

    # stamp on foam pallet for Wilson K90

    Why would you think that? And what would the typical 3 then stand for? 4 should be 4 1/2 or L4... also looks more like a 4 than a 2. by the way, anybody needs a help to explain L1 to L5: it’s always 4 in and 1 to 5 8th: 3 = 4 3/8 4 = 4 4/8 = 4 1/2 2 = 4 2/8 = 4 1/4 ...And so on.

    Max 200G

    Since a few years I am using the PS85 as my main stick, after the PS90. Every once in a while I take out the Max200g for doubles, when not too much is at stake... I have several, need to check their weights... the one in my bag has still the same crap string inside from the day I picked it up...

    Federer concedes tourneys without fans may be coming

    On the other hand, he does own an entire Academy, that he can simply lock down and nobody knows and sees inside. In Zurich people played tennis even during lockdown on someone’s privat court on private property! Roger may have been hitting some where behind closed doors or not... who cares? But...

    And I thought I had a good deal when I bought my 4 Monos for 100 CHF each on sale 20 something years ago [emoji2957]... they served me well for many years :-). Would you be willing to let go of one Mono? I always wanted a nice one for display!
