    Alternate Tie Offs for Wilsons

    I've noticed that the Wilson provided instructions usually result in lots of messy string jobs with double blocked holes etc. For example for the Clash 100 they say to tie off mains at 6 throat and crosses at 5 head and 8 throat. Klippermate says to tie off mains at 8 throat and crosses at 8...

    2021 Laver Cup Big Flop

    Anyone else get tickets to 2021 Laver Cup in Boston and extremely disappointed in the lineup? Team Europe has no Fed, Djoker or Nadal. Represented by 6 players that have a combined 0 GS. Medvedev, Citybus, Zed, Bwehhhhh, Berrettini, and Ruud. So far world only has 3 players announced that...

    Head Speed Pro Graphene 360 vs. 360+ Stringing Instructions

    Does anyone know if the Head Speed Pro G360+ and the previous gen G360 use the same stinging instructions? The tie off points are printed in different spots on the frame and I found different instructions online but the pattern and grommet holes seem to line up on both. I strung the older G360...

    Laver Cup Boston 2021 - Who is Playing?

    Has anyone heard any news on who is playing in the Laver Cup this year in Bostin Sept 24-26? I just bought tickets this morning, mainly because I want to see RF play once before his impending retirement in the next year or two. It looks like Theim signed up last year but is out of Wimbledon...

    Which balls for ball machine?

    Which balls do you guys like to use for your ball machine? I'm about to order a case specifically for ball machine use. In the past I've found that the cheap Costco Penns/Wilsons lose pressure really fast even if you hit them only 1-2 machine sessions and let them sit for a few months in...

    Negatives of going too head light?

    Curious what downsides there are of going to head light by adding weight in the handle (leather grip or tungsten in trap door etc.)? The main one I can think of is just adding too much static weight can make the over racquet heavier even if the head is more maneuverable. There shouldn't be much...

    Replace broken clip on Yonex bag?

    Hi TW team, I have a Yonex Tour 9 pack bag I got a few years ago and the plastic buckle at the base of one of the backpack straps recently broke leaving a jagged edge which unfortunately cut my hand when I reached down to put the strap on. I reached out to Yonex and they had no ideas and asked...

    Matching Racquets: Balance or Weight?

    When matching two of the same frame do you put priority on matching balance point or static weight to make them play as similar as possible? I have two Head G360 Predtige MP. With the same head leather grip, strings, dampener and overgrip one is 339 grams and one is 343 without butt caps. I...

    Cross string through a grommet with a main - Over or Under?

    When you have to put a cross string through a grommet that is blocked, how do you decide whether to go over or under the existing string that's blocking the hole? I generally find the path of least resistance that lets me feed the tip through but sometimes that results in a situation where the...

    Out of Ideas on what to try next

    I've come to realize I like testing new racquets almost as much as playing tennis. I know what I typically like and out of ideas on what to try next. I think the 2021 Vcore 95 is going to be my new permanent match racquet for USTA (mostly doubles) but looking for ideas on what to try next. I...

    People bumping ancient For Sale Threads

    TW forum staff, is there anyway to archive for sale ads that are say 6+ months old? I've noticed people going through the board and spamming 6 month to even 5+ year old for sale threads back to back for the same racquet they are looking for at the moment instead of sending PM's. This clutters...

    Wilson QC: Blade V7 18x20

    I ordered a new Blade V7 18x20 and it arrived. I took off all the plastic/wrapping and measured it at 307 grams unstrung (2 grams over spec, no big deal) and 13 inch/33cm balance point which is roughly 4 points head light unstrung. That seems way off spec of 32cm and 7 points HL unstrung...

    Nike Tennis Shoes with React Foam

    Has Nike ever used the React foam in any tennis shoes? I've been looking for the most cushioned shoes and mostly been using Asics along with Nike Cage 3 and Zoom Zeros. No shoes I've ever tried have come close to the cushioning and comfort as my Nike Epic React 2 Flyknit running shoes. My...

    Do Prince Neos 1000 Clamps Wear out?

    Curious if the clamps on the glide bars of a Prince Neos 1000 machine ever wear out? I'm getting a loss of tension and have checked to make sure my tension head is calibrated. I've cleaned the clamps with rubbing alcohol thoroughly. I've also adjusted my clamps to the point where they are...

    Thin Polys (1.15) Notching

    I've been using 1.15 Hyper G and Cyclone for about the last year. I find that after 4 hours or so in a 16x19 frame I start to get notching on main strings and on the crosses also after about 6. My question is, once the string is notched should you go ahead and cut out the set? I typically cut...

    4.0 still full of pushers

    I got bumped up from 3.5 to 4.0 this year and played in a few tournaments since the beginning of the year. I was expecting 4.0 to be a lot different than 3.5. My observations about 3.5 are that there are 2 main types of players. The guy that tries to hit everything for a winner and misses 70%...

    Adjusting from outdoors to indoors in one match

    I played a tournament this weekend which was supposed to be outdoors. Sat AM the match started at 9:30, I won the first set 6-1. Second set was close and it started raining at 3-4. They called a rain delay for about an hour and then moved everyone to indoor courts. The USTA officials rushed...

    Search Results Non Sequential?

    Wondering if it's possible to make search results in a forum sequential by date or provide a filter/sort mechanism for the results. Right now the results are all mixed up. For instance if searching for a particular racquet in the For Sale section it returns results that are months old mixed in...

    Yonex Vcore 98 vs. Ezone 98

    Has anyone hit the Vcore 98 (SV replacement) head to head with the Ezone 98 (DR replacement)? I have a pair of Ezone 98's that I like pretty well, at first they felt kind of stiff despite the published RA but I like the extra pop, maneuverability and good spin compared to previous Angell TC97...

    Go Thinner if you don't break strings?

    Would there be any reason not to go with the thinnest string possible if you're an aggressive hitting player and non string breaker using a 18x20 pattern? I cut my strings at 7-9 hours and never break them. I started out using Solinco Revolution 16 then 17 and switched to Hyper G 18 (1.15) and...

    Data for Hyper-G 19 and 20 gauge

    Hi TW team, any chance you can add string data to your comparison tool for Hyper-G 19 and 20 gauges? I currently play 18 gauge in a 18x20 and thinking about going thinner, would love to know the specs. Thanks!

    Tried a Natural Gut/Poly Hybrid Again...meh

    I've been a poly user for a while and decided to string up my Angell TC97 a hybrid of Babolat natural color VS Gut 1.30 and Solinco Revolution 1.20. The results were sub par for me, a tiny bit more power than the full bed of poly and less spin/control. The gut/poly bed did not feel any softer...

    String Reviews: How Many Hours is 2-3 Weeks

    Hi TW crew, I like watching your string review videos on youtube. I noticed that string playability is typically mentioned in weeks during the reviews. Most polys are 2-4 weeks. I'm wondering how many hours your playtesters are playing with the strings within those 2-4 weeks. Would you...

    How Many Teams from Each Section Advance to Nationals

    This is probably a dumb question but I could not find any info on how many teams from each region advance to USTA team national championships. Is it just the team that won each section or do larger sections get more than 1 team (TX, Socal etc)?

    Volkl Cyclone 18L vs 19

    Looking for opinions on volkl cyclone 18L vs 19 gauge especially in 18x20 frames for a non string breaker with a fairly flat swing and lowish net clearance. Currently using Solinco Revolution 1.20 and looking to try some similar strings. I also like Hyper-G 18 gauge right now.
