    Yonex Poly Tour Rev - 17 Gauge

    It doesn’t look like the 17 gauge is listed in TW University’s string comparison database. Does anyone out there have any measurables for the 17 gauge in terms of: - total tension loss - total tension loss percentage - stiffness I do use the Tune app, but like to refer to TW University as...

    Did you buy a new racquet in 2021!

    I bought six frames in 2021: - two TF40 305’s which I gave to my bro - two 97 HDs which I still have, but am not using - two 2021 Vcore Pro 97 310’s which I’m now using

    I added 2 inches of TW's tungsten tape to 10:00, 12:00 and 2:00 (i.e. 2 inches in total at each of the three locations, 1 inch on each side). The swingweight increased from 318 to 329 with Yonex vibration dampener (measured using Babolat RDC). My 2021 Vcore Pro 97 310's are now AMAZING!!!!!

    Yeah, I suppose it boils down to the fact that a) its not the same group who reviewed the 2019 version and b) reviews are always subjective. Its a great reminder that people should actually demo racquets and determine what works best for their game.

    Well here’s the baffling as expected written review of the 310. https://www.tennis-warehouse.com/learning_center/racquet_reviews/310VD7review.html It’s even more bizarre considering the scores given the 2019 version as well as the reviews of so many within this thread...

    My two were spot on: 332 strung static weight (including Yonex overgrip and vibration dampener) 320 swing weight (including Yonex vibration dampener) 60 RA By the way, I didn’t use the matching service so I’m guessing I either a) got lucky; or b) got frames from Yonex’s second batch (as I’ve...

    That makes sense. If I didn’t jive with my new setup I’d try that same thing. I had been using the 97HDs for the past few years, but the static weight with strings, overgrip and Yonex vibration dampener was 348. My new setup is feeling great and is 13 grams lighter.

    To your larger point, it’s really amazing how little you need to add to change the feeling of a racquet. How much weight do you add to your sticks?

    2021 Yonex VCore Pro Official Thread

    One whole 8 inch strip of TW tungsten tape is approximately 2.8 grams. I’m only using six inches per racquet (two 1 inch strips at 10, 12 and 2). I believe that would mean I only added about .70 grams at all three spots. Does that make sense?

    I found my perfect setup with the 2021 97 310’s. Using the TW tungsten tape, I put two one inch strips at 10:00, 2:00 and 12:00 (six one inch strips in total). The static weight only went up from 332 to 335, but the swing weight went from 320 to 325. It’s amazing how stable it feels all over...

    Yes, I think it did increase power a bit. However, that was a bit of a negative as I’m not really looking for free power. I think I actually prefer it stock (i.e. 320 swing weight). I’ll post an update after I get out again this weekend.

    My guess would be the 310 would be more like the dynamic flex.

    2021 Yonex VCore Pro Official Thread

    I would say there's a bit more flex with HD's. However, I don't feel like its a dramatic change. In fact, my HD's had a 59 RA and the 310's have a 60 RA. They flex differently due to the changes to the 310, but overall I don't find them all that much different (from a flex standpoint).

    I shelved my 97 HD's for the 2021 97 310's. I'm going to add just a smidge of weight at 10 and 2, just to raise the swing weight a bit.

    I'm not sure I'm looking forward to TW's written review of the 97 310. I feel like they had all of the wrong people reviewing that one. It should have been Michelle, Chris, Erik, Boonie etc. as they typically review all of the "player frames".

    Novak's loss at the USO

    To think that 2021 started with 20-20-17 and ended 20-20-20. I don't see any reason 2022 doesn't end up at 20-20-22 (Djoker at AO and Wimbledon). At the very least it will be 20-20-21. I'm not buying any of the hype about Nadal being "back". When you're dealing with type of foot issues he is...

    I think Zverev vs. Med would have been a very interesting match. I think if Med played the way he did yesterday, then he would have won.

    2021 US Open Final - [1] Novak Djokovic vs. [2] Daniil Medvedev

    The problem with today’s crowd is that so many of them aren’t diehard tennis fans. Rather, it’s a lot of the rich and/or famous types who are only their to see history. It’s kind of like how idiot fans act during the Ryder Cup in golf.
