    Contoured Grips- Feel the groove

    I was hoping to get a discussion going about contoured grips. Until recently I had just used basic replacement grips. A couple months ago, I tried the Gamma Hi Tech Gel Contour grip and liked some things about it. First, the grip goes from being mostly smooth (besides the bevels) to having very...

    Weiss Cannon Red Ghost - great poly

    Is anyone else using this string? I've used it now on (2) SV100's and an SV98 and I must say, it is a great poly. Very comfortable, plenty of power and spin. Less bite on the ball as compared to Ultracable and just a little less than Hyper G, but more comfortable then both, better tension...

    Yonex VCore SV club

    I haven't seen that much posted about the VCore SV racquets so I figured this could be a spot for users of the VCore SV series racquets to discuss these frames, strings and modifications, etc. After demoing a multitude of frames, I finally settled on the VCore SV100. I prefer a little more...

    Yonex VCore SV100 vs SV98

    Can anyone with some experience with these racquets give me a good comparison of the two? Specifically, the power level difference between the two and the weight/balance overall and spin potential? I have been demoing several racquets recently and liked the DR98 as well, but it felt just a...

    Head Youtek IG Instinct MP and Instinct S now listed for pre-sale

    Just a heads up. They are now available for pre-sale on the site. Nice pricing for a really good frame. I demo'd both the MP and S version locally and they are very nice. Thinner beam, 16x19 pattern, nice feel and pop on both racquets. The S is quite light and slightly head-heavy while the...

    First timer (this weekend). How was your first?

    So I started playing tennis recreationally (and infrequently) last summer. I probably played about 6-8 matches over the course of the summer and that was it. This spring/summer, I started really getting into playing and wanted to learn how to better my game. Ive been trying to play a minimum of...

    Head YT Instinct S vs EXO3 Tour Lite? I need some advice

    Im looking for a racquet to replace my Prince O3 Hybrid Hornet OS. Im about a 3.0 level player practicing and improving every week, and the OS head is a bit too large, and has too much power for me. I have demo'd several racquets, and I really like a few things about both the new Head YT...
