    Tourna Quasi Gut Armor

    I've used the 16g version as a cross in an 18x20 blade with max power in the mains. The stringbed feels great and the quasi gut really softens it and removes a lot of the stiffness from the poly that starts hurting my arm if I use a full bed of max power for too long. The quasi gut armor...

    Feli Lopez in uniqlo/unsponsored

    This is kind of sad to see at the end of his career. Pretty soon we'll see him on here in the Wanted section looking to trade frames and string for some clothes to wear.

    Blade V8 Official Thread.

    Needless to say the rep really couldn't tell me why I should ditch the 2013 Blade and just buy the v8. I didn't have the heart to pull out the kblade 98 18x20 I had in my bag.

    Blade V8 Official Thread.

    A Wilson rep was at a local tourny I played in this weekend and he had the Blade v8. Really nice paint job especially in the sunlight. He wasn't letting anyone demo the frame or even take a photo though. The guy seemed to know stuff about some of the gimmicks of the frame like how the...

    Djoker's Racket tech/adviser on all things pro/rec, you shouldn't use the RF :)

    Yeah I'm sure Roman is in the know. If he were trying to sell frames though I would think he wouldn't go around saying the RF97 is a frame nobody should use? I have never been to his shop in NYC--is it like a typical pro shop with merch etc or does he just sell his expertise and service as a...

    Djoker's Racket tech/adviser on all things pro/rec, you shouldn't use the RF :)

    His comments on Stanimal's frame don't seem to be correct. He says Stan plays with the 330g version of the frame Tiafoe uses while all of us racquet-holics here know the real truth. Cool interview though.

    Djokovic news Asics inspired by Serbia colors.

    That's interesting.....I found the Gel Resolutions to be the most cushioned tennis shoe for me and they have saved my joints. Different strokes I guess. I have a pair of the gel resolution in cool black/white colorway with Djoko's stamp on the back. I'm going to keep them un-used because of...

    Ezone 98 opinions

    A lot of guys I play with are married to full poly. I don't know if it is some badge of manhood or if they haven't done their research on what strings are available to them. One guy won't even consider poly that is not Luxilon and he'll keep the same Lux stringjob for about 6 months before...

    New Yonex Vcore (for 2020 or 2021 ?)

    Thanks for the feedback (no pun intended). Did you playtest any of the ezone 2018? I've read that they are stiffer throughout the hoop and provide a firmer response. For some yonex fans, it is a negative, but I've read some here find it a positive.

    Post Pictures of your Racquets and Tennis Gear

    Awesome thanks! The blue tack I use is as blue as the packaging on yours, not grey-ish. I think you have more lead inside your hoop than Djoko and Stanimal combined!

    Small sweet spot but really really sweet?

    I had the first version of the Ultra tour and that thing had a small but extremely hot hot spot. If you hit it, it was like Thor's hammer coming down on the ball.

    Most Pros are using stock racquets

    Karue was in the 400 range when he was on tour and he used a retail frame I believe. @MyTennisHQ Maybe he can do a youtube video about this topic based on his experiences?

    Tennis Warehouse: Yonex VCORE 95, 98, 100 2021 Playtest

    Interesting Karue says he feels he struggles with his serve. I guess it is all relative but there aren't a lot of things I wouldn't give up to have his serve!

    Will Restringing often wear out raquet

    Is there any amongst us who string frequently (i.e. once every week or 2) who has had their frame break or lose it's feel? I've been doing it for years with the same rotation of frames and haven't had any issues

    Tecnifibre Texalium T-Fight 325 Pallets

    I have a couple of the Tec TF325 XL texalium frames. The guy I bought them off of told me that the mold and drill pattern is based on the i.prestige MP XL. Having played both, I think they feel quite similar.
