    EZONE Closest to DR98 @Chris and Michelle

    Hi guys. If similarly weighted, which of the new 2 Ezone models (98 and Tour) is closer to the DR 98 in - power - launch angle - comfort - feel - maneuverability I am mostly worried about comfort and control (length). The DR is already at my limit in terms of length control using gut/poly...

    Vapor X or something else

    Need some help, have been a loyal ASICS user for many years. First the resolution, then solution speeds (2 and 3). My size is 11. Loved the SS3 most of all. The last resolution I had was the 6 and it was slightly wide. I believe my foot is narrow in the middle, but wide in the forefoot. All...

    Updated Reconstructing my FH (Video+games)

    Last April I posted this for feedback: In essence, I wasn’t happy with my FH’s lack of penetration, especially on no pace balls. I had a rare chance to take 2 weeks off during the holidays and play with a coach...

    If Zverev wins a slam next year, Lendl is coach GOAT?

    First Murray, now Zverev wins ATP Finals against Djokovic. If he can finally improve in best of 5 and actually win a slam in 2019, Lendl will have shown he is able to take those with promise, but lacking that final mile

    Which of these Volkls as comfortable as T98ESP?

    Never tried a Volkl and can't demo. Due to Chronic TE, rolled the dice on the softest racquet I felt would be a fit spec wise, the prince Tour98ESP and it worked. However, slice BH is erratic. Couldn't believe that Volkls (newer models) could be comfortable due to high flex and vibration...

    Q to TW Prof: vibration freq. & Volkls

    First, thank you for providing the wealth of info available on TWU. Without it, buying online would be like a crap shoot. I'm actually a fan of the older interface, which had more details :) if anything, I wish all racquets were reported in TWU. Now, between the Flex and vibration frequency...

    Contact point/timing flat vs topspin

    Hope I can explain this well: For me, if I want to hit topspin, it "feels" I'm trying to hit the ball right after I am starting to "close" my elbow in the swing (coming from an extended elbow position), which allows the forearm to add to the rhs across the ball during pronation. However, I am...

    A few Qs on gut/poly hybrids-soft poly?

    First, apologies if this has been addressed before. I've tried searching and have been reading several threads about the topic. I've been trying to settle on a cross poly for a while now. Not being in the US, that means ordering several different sets over longer periods of time from TW. So...
