    Babolat racquets cracking: just me?

    Had Babolat racquets for more than ten years (APD and PD). Never met any crack. Actually, the only crack I remember was on a Snauwaert and it was likely a stringer issue. Some people around me have been using Babolat for years without any problem. I know a young woman playing at high level who...

    New Head Frame

    Maybe it reflects specs variation and the RA may be actually lower? I think Head does not provide the RA How the Head size /shape differ between the pro and mp?

    Tennis Warehouse: Head Boom MP (Prototype 2021) Racquet

    What makes you think that the Boom is Head answer to the Clash? The Pro seems to be pretty stiff though comfortable according to preliminary reports. Is the pro 310 or 315g unstrung? I understand it’s a 98 not a 100? Thanks for sharing, that racquet is exciting, we’ll see how it goes.

    Head Racquets Quality Control

    I’m pretty sure only rare players could detect a 4pts SW difference under controlled (blind) conditions Even among the pickiest guys around here

    Can I fill my handle with sand?

    Camembert should produce the same effect, especially in hot weather conditions.

    Ultimate racquet for a 4.5 player

    It’s definitely a matter of taste But I think 22.6 (let’s say 23) may warrant decent stability for a 305 g frame Thinner beam may be a better fit for a heavier racquet On the paper that prototype ticks all the boxes for me

    That racquet sounds more appealing every day When do you estimate it will be available?

    Prince release a racquet that looks like a Volkl

    I mean this innovation was forgotten in the way that manufacturers did not consider it was a game changer and stopped using it Even Volkl is no longer producing such racquets That’s a typical example of gimmick technology I think.

    Ultimate racquet for a 4.5 player

    320 is fine for many players at this level It’s not pro player pace And given the wide variability among specs for a single model, you will likely need some weight for fine tuning if you want to get something very accurate. A couple of years ago I read that very few pro players (I think Santoro...

    Ultimate racquet for a 4.5 player

    Looks very promising! Could you let us know the beam thickness? When do you think it will become commercially available? Do you have a rough estimate of your price range? Sorry I know it may be too early but your project is pretty exciting!

    which forehand to model after

    I would rather advise to focus on FH fundamentals and develop your own stroke The risk is that you just copy the gimmicks / singularity that every player has in his own FH and miss what is truly essential

    Official Wilson Clash thread

    Some are complaining about control with the Clash line Could you give your honest appreciation about the level of control of the Clash 98? I guess it’s not Pro Staff tier but is it that bad? Can you hit semi flat without too much concern?

    List of tennis racquets that cause arm/shoulder problem/s.

    You are right Usually the lighter the head heavier A « heavy » + head heavy racquet would not be maneuverable enough Not rarely you will see let’s say 310 g racquets with a SW that is not much higher than a 290 g, because most of the +20g will be towards the handle In addition you don’t see...

    List of tennis racquets that cause arm/shoulder problem/s.

    Provocative claim: Tennis elbow is not a Babolat thing. As many players, I used a PD and then an APD with poly string without any problem. These are good racquets for many players and I think there may a bit of bashing here. Main causes of TE are 1- poor technique : TE has always been more...

    Prince Beast 98

    Something I like very much with the B98 is that it’s not pingy at all. Had a 2 hours session yesterday + 1 hour this morning just practicing with my tennis pal who is a hard hitter. No discomfort or soreness at all.
