    2021 All TT Team - 4.0 Men

    18-3 would have been better. :-D Thanks again for all your very cool blogs and posts. You have some great analysis and share quite a bit of facts the USTA could share but doesn't. I have always thought the USTA should hire you a least as a contractor and pay you for your input. Many posters...

    2021 All TT Team - 4.0 Men

    @schmke I was hoping to make the All TT Team 3.5 Men :) I would have thought my 2021 results have to be among the lowest all of the 4.0 guys on this forum

    Poly/Poly hybrids your favorite? Advice?

    I string quite a bit of X1 mains / velocity crosses just to drop the price for clients if you want a a bit more pop go 58M/56X. X1 is $20 MSRP a pack.. Velocity is $12 a pack. I buy both by the reel, and pass the price off of reels to the clients who give me a lot of business. It keeps their...

    Reel Thoughts for Stringers

    my .02 is only Isospeed Cream is the same price reel or sets. Velocity used to be cheaper by the set when sold at $4.97 a pack. I buy by reels mostly and find my reel price substantially cheaper than 18 packs of sets except of Isospped Cream. You're going to the wrong websites. :cool:

    Ezone AI 98 grommet and buttcap questions

    I have plenty of Ai98 Grommets probably a dozen sets at least. The problem with the grommets is the inferior throat piece of the set where Yonex uses a two piece system with fragile soft silicon (either yellow or blue) and the hard clear plastic piece in lieu of a one-piece hard plastic...

    Multifeel vs Velocity verdict

    When a 4.5 rated player hits with MF/Velocity and gives me great feedback, I certainly don't mind sharing the info to my 3.0 and 3.5 clients

    Multifeel vs Velocity verdict

    @markwillplay try MF mains & Velocity crosses. While not everyone will like it, I string it for quite a few players who like it better than a full bed of MF or a full bed of Velocity.

    Clash 100 Grommets?

    When a TW customer places an order for out-of-stock items, TW doesn't charge the customers until the order ships. Furthermore TW does an outstanding job of answering questions regarding equipment. TW gets an A+++ in the Customer Service arena. But Wilson's customer service is as bad as...

    Clash 100 Grommets?

    100% no chance. I have two orders in for Wilson Grommetts from March of 2021.. all Wilson does is tell TW a new date and move the dates. Been doing this since Covid hit. My .02 to. Clients is to stop buying Wilson frames. While true all companies have had supply chain issues, Wilson's customers...

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

    Thank you. It seems Wilson didn't allow anyone to sell the Ultra Pro v3 frame but themselves via Wilson's website and to my understanding they don't even list the Grommets for the UP 3.0 and in classic Wilson style, never allowed anyone else to sell the grommets either. I have WRG737200 Ultra...

    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...

    Wilson RF7 Grommets alternative?

    @Merkaffe and @lidoazndiabloboi Nicely done! Thanks for the information and posts. Do either of you know if the V13 RF grommets (WRG043700) will fit the V13 PS 97 (WRG043800)? Evidently the V13 drill pattern changed for the PS 97 and the RF97. It would be nice if Wilson had a knowledge...

    Overgrip similar to Tournagrip?

    @steveq81 Volkl V-Dry is tapered on both ends and feels somewhat similar to Tournagrip. My hands shred Tounrnagrip and like you, I hate it personally, but stock it for clients.

    Reel Thoughts for Stringers

    I always start with 1.25mm poly reels unless it is VCT which should only be sold in 1.30mm ;) 99% of my clients (who use a poly other than VCT) want 1.25mm polys. If I am stringing a Wilson Steam 99S Frame or another Wilson "Spin Effect" frame, you bet I am using 1.30mm or 1.35mm poly mains...

    Bob's not writing about string breaking juniors. Reread his letter. He is writing about the 70+ yearold 3.0 lady on the court next to me yesterday with a 110 square Wilson and Hyoer G, the beginners and the players who have never broken a string in their life. and yep she was a 70+ 3.0 with...

    Those are the bumper guard / grommets for the Ultra Tour 97. They might fit but Wilson only sells the Ultra Pro V3 online and they don't even list the grommets

    Wilson Grommets -- What is going on with Wilson ?

    Thanks but all those dates just move every time Wilson doesn't deliver. Any chance to have a buyer from TW get some accurate information? I appreciate the reply but those dates just keep moving out. Not being snarky at all, but just have a few players are trying to decide if they want to...

    No worries at all. There are plenty of experienced stringers on those forums. Some string at the four majors. Then there are stringers in shops and home based stringers and those who string for tournaments and combos of all of those. Natural Gut is the only natural string. One cow's Intestines...

    VCORE Pro HD 97 is an 18x20. 18x20 string patterns will always break later than a 16x19 string pattern of the same frame. E.g, VCORE 97 vs VCORE 97HD, same for the Blade 98 and PureStriks 98.. Don't worrying about breaking stings.. Breaking strings doesn't make you a better player and not...
