    Shaped poly in crosses?

    If I use shaped poly in mains, would a shaped poly in the crosses be problematic in terms of preventing string movement? This is with regards to an 18 x 20 pattern.

    Prestige 360+ mp customisation

    Just wondering abt your setups for this racquet. I strung it with BHS7T 1.25 on mains and Signum Hextreme 1.20 on crosses at 48lbs. Got 3g of lead at 12. The launch angle is quite low now and then still I find which I like but I would like a bit more clearance. Lovely feel otherwise.

    Ideas for a private court setup

    I am looking to setup a private indoor court. It would just be one court. Need help with how to do this. Some options are: 1) i know a person with a private court. Would be awesome to be able to shelter it since we have snowy winters. Then lighting comes into play too. 2) Renting warehouse space...

    I currently play a Gravity Pro and like it. A friend said good things abt the Prince Phantom 97p. I cant demo it here. Has anyone played both and can compare? I know they are different string patterns. I play a ohbh and so curious abt that mostly.

    Line calling etiquette

    What is the proper etiquette for line calling? I played a guy today. I called some of his serves out which he thought were in. Then I also played serves that I thought were in but he thought were out. It got awkward. I pride myself on being honest and sportsmanlike. I suppose I felt borderline...

    Stringing Pure Aero French Open

    I was stringing this for someone but it seems to be different from a regular Pure Aero. I couldn't find the right grommets to tie off crosses unless this is only meant for one piece stringing? Do I still skip 7 and 9 on mains?

    Leather grip makes racquet feel "stiffer"?

    I played with my Vcore 95 for the most of the latter half of last year and it had a leather grip on (I did quite well with this setup). I think early this year in a bid to reduce the weight of the racquet, I replaced it with a synthetic grip and then it never felt the same. A few days ago, I put...

    Lead tape for penetrating slice?

    I play with a Pure Aero VS. It has 2g of lead at 12, 2g at 3 and 2g at 9. I cant hit a penetrating slice as I can with my XT Prestige Pro. Should I tinker with more lead or change the placement?

    Pure Aero VS customization

    I play with a Pure Aero VS and am starting to like it. Used it for 3 sessions only. I put on a leather grip and overgrip. I have 2g of lead at 12 and about 1g at 10 and 1g at 2. I could still use more plow though. My shots are not penetrating enough. I string with BHS7T at 56lbs but it has...

    Syn gut strings slipping out of clamps

    Hi all. I have a Klippermate. I have tried to string a racquet with two different syn gut strings now and they both slipped out of my clamps during stringing. I have been able to string syn gut fine before. Do I need new clamps? I can string poly fine.

    Semi-western backhand players?

    I switched to this bh grip today. I thickened my 4 1/4 grip to allow for my palm to almost be locked in. What I realised is that before I used a lot of wrist in my one hand backhands and it felt "shaky". This change lets me lock, load and rip!!! This is a semi-western backhand grip...

    Hitting such good ohbh with Aeropro drive GT

    I have been using my Aeropro Drive GT lately (as opposed to my Vcore 95) and wow - does it work so well with my ohbh. I like the stiff feeling. I feel more connected. Anyone else feeling this? I am trying to nail if it is the stiffness, graphite material, beam thickness, 16 x 19 pattern, 100sq...

    What AeroPro Drive version?

    Hi guys. This is my first racquet. I dont recall when I purchased it though it feels before 2008. Can anyone help identify the year from the pic? The serial number is KF44427. I am more interested in the specs.

    Vcore 95 - backhand slice help!

    Hi all. I shift before a Gravity Pro and a Vcore 95. I have about 2g of lead at 12 on my Vcore 95 and my Gravity Pro is stock. I hit a way nicer, penetrating backhand slice with my Gravity Pro but can't get that with my Vcore 95. What can I do with the Vcore 95 (in terms of customization) to...

    Speed gains with poly / multi?

    Hi all. I primarily play full poly. I have used poly / multi hybrids in the past. I currently use a Zepp sensor on my HEAD racquet and am working towards developing more pace on my strokes. Technique can definitely be improved! If I switched to using multis on a cross, would this aid with adding...

    Shapo and mishits!

    Watched Shapo yesterday and starting to notice a trend of him just randomly mishitting a lot. You guys think it is just him being late or that he would do better with a bigger frame than his current 95 sq inch frame?

    Is my grip size too big?

    I have always played with a 4 1/4 but I would say I am more of a 4 3/8 since I use 4 1/4 as I like smaller grips. I recently found a used Ultra Tour but it is size 4 1/2. I put on a leather grip and overgrip. Here is a link to a pic showing my index finger test. Is this too big...
