    Book on the Tennis Boom of the 1970's

    Head TGT297.1

    Any experience with this one? I like the GrapheneXT Instinct MP, but it's a little too stiff at 66. I see the Prostock version listed as 63.

    Yonex SV Question

    Does Yonex mean by this quote from their webpage that their 1/4 and 1/8 grip will feel smaller than their grips normally do, while their 3/8 and above feel like the always do? "Grip sizes G0 to G2 are undersized to provide increased comfort. G3 and onward are the same for users who prefer thick...

    Becker Serve Grip's new issue has settled the issue. There is not only a clear picture, but a discussion with Peter Breskvar, the son of the coach who taught Becker the serve. It is halfway between an Eastern forehand and Continental, it apparently is useful to players with a strong wrist. Peter...

    Adding Silicone in a Volkl handle?

    Anyone ever tried this? I am thinking of putting some in my V1 Classic to make it more headlight, I do not like adding lead under the grip and have already replaced the grip with a shockshield, so silicone would be my best option if it works with the Volkl handle system.

    Old strings DON'T lose power and they DON'T lose resilience

    The following is from Luxilon's sting expert, commenting on RSI's restring initiative - the article also points out pros restring frequently for strinbed consistency, not comfort. "I'm sure RSI won't mind me quoting from an article in their book (well, they might in this particular context) by...

    Courier Gear Interview

    Between the two segments, about fifteen minutes. Of interest, he wishes he hadn't been stubborn and stuck with small head rackets because there is no advantage to a 90 over his new 102. He also says all recreational players should use poly in their stringbed, as at any swing speed it gives an...

    Impressions of Organix V1 MP

    I currently use the 2010 Volkl V1 Classic, and have a Powerbridge V1 and DNX V1, and have hit with the Quantum, Catapult, Original and 10-Year anniversary editons of the Classic, so I am quite familiar with the frame.

    Dunlop 500 Bio vs Volkl Organix 6 vs Head IG Speed Lite

    I'm a 3.5, played with various Volkl V1 MP's for the last 5 years, currently using the Becker version. Comapared the above 3 frames as demos, all came strung at midrange with a multi. Dunlop 500 Bio easily the best, stable, comfortable, powerful - never would think it weighs only 10.3 oz...
