    Modification help

    1. Lead tape is not expensive. You can simply d.i.y. and usually you'll get what you want after several trial & error. 2. If you really want it done at once, then bring your racquet to a tennis store, tell them the spec you want and they'll do it for you. Just several bucks for labor. 3. If...

    classic rackets...any further suggestions

    Tried the Fischer M Comp, feels around 63 rather than 59 as stated. Little bit better power than Donnay Pro One International from baseline but the Donnay feels more comfortable and easier to access spin (especially 2nd serve). I personally slightly favor to the Donnay.

    An odd predicament...

    I'd say 1 or 2 good racquets from liquidation and strung with good string(s) is the way to go for your currect situation.

    Prince's Strung-Thru-Stringing System™

    Great racquet! Remember we hit balls and it gets stuck at the throat when we were/are at beginner level? Now Prince offers a solution, and that's why it's called game-improvement racquet! Haha!

    Yeah! But provided that one needs to know how to [K]ontrol the racquets!

    anyone else do this?

    I'm... sort of. Price is a factor, but I also care about the playing characteristic a specific racquet has.

    Why does the PS 6.0 85 swing so much easier than K90/N90/PS90??

    2nd here! Relax and let the weight of the racquet do the job then you'll appreciate it a lot!

    Blisters from leather grip

    Overgrip will help, but not completely eliminate the problem, especially when one has wrong grip size.

    Stencils are for wankers!

    I'd rather have the "S" come with a diamond shape in bright red together. Haha!

    about the Donnay Pro One Oversize..

    Compared to the midplus, it is (due to the composition), but it still feels a pretty solid and standard 100% graphite stick, doesn't really notice any excessive vibration. You can string it with some soft strings and try first.

    flex feels weird on microgel radical

    I demoed the MicroGEL Radical. It is indeed much more flexible than Liquidmetal and Flexpoint versions. Personally I like this flexy feel more and it halps me generate more top spin from baseline. However, I also experienced some twist/instability when I hit off-center shots. Maybe HEAD should...

    If u have 50$ where would u spend it?

    Depends on what you need the most right now. You'll eventually get all the stuff from all 3 choices. Just keep saving some more money.

    LM Radical V. MG Radical OS

    For me, Liquidmetal Radical clangs a bit more while has little better feel. Anyway, I enjoy MicroGEL Radical more overall.

    Head MicroGel head sizes. Are they really what they say?

    People say HEAD's notation includes the rim (racquet itself) while others exclude the frame. So there's a little discrepancy. Not sure if it's true. For me I don't care since I only care whether or not I like to hit with the particular racquet.

    How do you wash your hat?

    Machine wash, air dry or tumble dry low. Tell you the truth. I have many clothes with tags saying "hand wash, lay flat to dry", I put them in washer and tumble dry with high heat, nothing happen. I also have many clothes with tags saying "machine wash, tumble dry", but when I follow the...

    Can I change the Pure Drive+ grip ?

    Or you may try Gustavo Kuerten's setup, use 2 overgrips instead. Pull them tight to further reduce the grip size.

    spin serves

    Donnay Pro One International is one of the midplus easiest to produce huge amount of spin for serving I've tried lately, and it's really inexpensive.

    for those who like the power beam...

    Never have chance to try the Power Beam, but really wonder whether or not the mechanism will get loose after regular use for years.

    price wise 2nd racquet

    Based on your list I'd say you can immediately narrow down your choices by answering 2 questions: 1. Is oversize a must to you (i.e. DNX 9 / Flexpoint Prestige vs. Prince Original Graphite / Radical LE)? 2. Do you prefer classic or modern touch/feel (i.e. Radical LE / Prince Original Graphite...

    Can a XL racquet be the solution for a mid user?

    Certain time in the past I did have similar problem of the distance of sweet spot from my hand with racquets with various headsizes. However, when I put those racquets side-by-side for comparison I immediately noticed the difference is very minor (except I compare ProStaff 85 with some 107 sq...

    stiff vs flexy

    Yes & no for both flexy & stiff racquets. It all depends on which section(s) of the racquet has more flex and what type(s) of string I use and how tight they are. No absolute answer.

    K90 - Stiffness + 67?

    I'm using it. To me it feels more like about 63~64, and flex is mainly about the neck area.

    Is their any way I can bring light to a dark court?

    How about playing with a fluorescent tennis ball instead (if you can find one)?
