    Babolat synthetic gut discontinued?

    Babolat Spiraltek has been my go-to string. I went to order more, TW no longer carries it or any other Babolat synthetic gut. Did Babolat stop making it, or is TW just not stocking it? If Spiraltek is no longer available, what should I go with as a replacement? Tourna Synthetic Gut Armor looks...

    Racquet compare tool issues

    I have seen a lot of issues with the racquet compare tool recently. At first I thought it was just something to do with new racquets as I was trying to compare the Tecnifibre RS racquets. I would select a couple of racquets and the results would come up with only 1 of them, saying it couldn't...

    How long do your multifilament strings last?

    Wish List feature not working right

    I have multiple wish lists, but recently can only add items to my first list. The drop list for selecting the other lists is not working. My other lists don't show up, only my first list shows up.

    Help an old guy pick a new racquet

    I'm in my late 50's, played competitively in high school (wood racquets), but only casually since then, and not much in the last 20 years. Want to get back into a regular playing schedule, maybe twice a week. All my racquets are old, newest one is a Wilson Pro Staff 5.1 from the early 90's, 12.5...
