    Sony Tennis Sensor with older Head models

    Hi, I have tried to search for this but I couldn't get a clear answer. I have an Extreme IG Pro 2.0. Is the original butt cap going to work with the head attachment (HD1)? Or the XT butt caps/trap door have different shape? Thank you

    Crank and Drop weight: what I don't have clear

    I know this is a pretty debated issue but I still have some doubts (even after reading a lot of threads on this forum). I understand the difference between a lockout and a drop weight system. I also understand that there is a compensation for it and that involves stringing higher when using a...

    Upgrade suggestion and possibly Wise

    I am planning to upgrade from my little kilppermate. I do want a fixed clamps machine. For actual budget reasons I think I will have to go with drop-weight (instead of crank). I was thinking about Pioneer DC+, Hip Hop or maybe Challenger I (I am a little concerned about buying from Eagnas...

    Babolat Pure Storm frames and PJ

    I noticed that all the pros (ATP and WTA) that use a Pure Storm family frame have the regular Pure Storm PJ. Nobody has the "Tour" PJ. Why is that? Or are those player indeed using the Pure Storm (I would be very surprised). Or it's a company policy to advertise only one model in this family...

    I have a klippermate stringer. I have always started the mains using the provided starting pin. Is there a way to avoid the use of the pin? I saw the video from YULitle (fantastic resource, btw) about starting the mains with flying clamps, but I am not sure if I can apply it safely on my...

    Are the shoes that Nadal is wearing in Rome (yellow and white) going to be available anytime soon? I guess they are just a different colorway of Court Ballistec 1.3. Am I right? Thank you.
