    Wilson Ultra Pro (18x20) v3 grommets ? Will they fit a Wilson Ultra Tour 97 (18x20)?

    Wilson's customer service is woefully lacking. Last week I emailed Wilson asking about the availability of Wilson Ultra Pro (18x20) v3 grommets which they don't list online as it is only sold on Wilson's website. Retailers like Tennis Warehouse are NOT allowed to sell the Wilson Ultra Pro v3...

    Any chance TW is getting the Blade Pro Feel Dampners in? I tried the Clash dampeners in Blade 98 frames of 3.0 players who "require" matching strings and matching green overgrips, because, well they "Clashed". My humor wasn't fully understood nor appreciated. :(:(;)

    Blade 98 16x19 V6 and V7 Grommets

    @TW Staff, The Wilson Blade 98 16x19 V7 Grommets are out of stock...expected in-stock June 10. Can your staff confirm if V6 Blade 98 16x19 Grommets have the same drill pattern and will work in a V7 16x19 Blade 98? I have V6 grommets but no V7 16x19 grommets hence the question.

    Whoa...Babolat Basic Logo Hat II..These are designed for people with size 8+ noggins

    @TW Staff and @Babolat Official Since there is no option to leave a customer review of these hats, here's mine. Great hat quality, but one size certainly doesn't fit most. After putting the hat on and adjusting it, I still had a full 3-inch tab flopping around on the outside of the hat...

    Michelle, Mark, Troy, or Chris, could you comment and compare the 2019 Babolat PA+ to the 2020 Yonex EZone 98+ in terms of power? Given the same strings, same tension how much less power can one expect from the 2020 Ezone 98+ compared to a 2019 PA+? All four of you were on both playtest. I...

    Why do TT Members who have little to know interaction with other TT members send private messages asking for free packs of strings?

    Am I the only person who gets these requests? :unsure: Do they consider these things? 1) The other party had to purchase the strings. 2) Take the time and effort to mail and pay for postage to mail strings to the requester. So here's my suggestion for them: Simply send a Venmo request to...

    Did TW stop selling your 9 grams of Tungsten Tape? It was nicer than the Babolat Tape

    I have three Prince Warrior Textreme Warrior 100 frames. One has a busted buttcap. And no I didn't throw it. Not one of those guys. It was from a staple adding a leather grip. I've put hundreds of staples in grips. This is the first the cracked...

    Prince Textreme Warrior 100 grommets ?

    Which grommets fit the Prince Warrior 100 16x18 frame ? TW only lists the 100L grommets - Sorry, just not sure what a 100L was so I had to click and search for the 100L then compare string patterns and take a guess these would fit. The TW rep wasn't sure after I called. Seems this is harder...

    Why can't TW US sell the same clay court Asics shoes that TWE sells?

    Just curious, since TW has the ability to get Asics to make TW exclusive colorways for TW, if TW could also get Asics to allow TW to sell clay court Gel-Resolutions and Speed Solutions in all the colorways that TW Europe sells. Well TWE can keep the Orange as their exclusive. The Blues...

    How to deal with teammate who has some 4.0 strokes and a 2.0 mental game

    I've seen a lot of teammates and opponents in my day. They came in various shapes and sizes with different abilities, strengths and weaknesses, but I've never struggled more as a partner and a Captain trying to deal with a guy who could by all means be a very good 4.0, if not for his almost...

    Steam 99S : setup for more control / less spin / arm friendly

    So the Steam 99S produces massive spin with it's 16x15 pattern. I am a middle of the road 4.0 looking to adjust the Steam 99S with a few string tweaks. I am a natural flat hitter who plays singles and doubles about the same, and equally well. I tend to rely on a highly dependable forehand...

    Wilson Steam 99S 18x16 with flex in the 64-66 range - Why not?

    So many frames on the market. Is there room for this one? I think so. The Steam 99S is great for a lot of players, but there are some players who feel the Steam 99S is close but just missed for them. I'm one of those guys. Two of the biggest knocks I see on the Steam 99S are: a) lacking...
