    Adidas Shoes with Best Forefoot Cushioning?

    Hi TW. Can you steer me in the right direction? I'm looking for an Adidas shoe with the best forefoot cushioning. I've tried the Defiant Bounce, as well as the Ubersonic 2 and 3, but haven't tried a Barricade in a couple of years. Any guidance would be appreciated. Thanks!

    Wilson Optimus String

    Hey guys. Have any of you hit with the new Wilson OPTIMUS string that's coming out in 2014? I just received a sample and was wondering what the initial feelings are regarding this string. I'm thinking I'll eventually hybrid with Pacific PRIME Gut. I'm hoping it will TRANSFORM my game.

    Prince Premier Attack getting updated!

    Hey guys. I just heard from my rep that Premier LT, Premier Attack, and Beast are all getting updates for the Oct product release. I'm not surprised with improved LT and Beast, but leave my Attack alone! Hahaha. Apparently, that's why it's been discounted to $7 a set on TW.

    Head on the Cover of Tennis Magazine

    I'm sorry, but apparently Tennis Magazine has completely sold out. This is the second issue in a row that utilizes the entire cover to advertise Head racquets. What's up with that? I know it brings in ad revenue, but selling a cover as ad space...come on!

    What Frames Should Prince Bring Back?

    Hey guys. Since some threads are coming up regarding the direction Prince should move it, I thought it would be fun to discuss what models Prince should produce going forward. Here's my take: I would like to see the EXO3 Rebel 95, and the Tour 100 series continue into the future. In...

    Sore feet, need a good rec!

    Hi guys. I'm a teaching pro and just wrapped up my busiest season to date. I'm sponsored by Prince, and really like my Rebel 2s, but the balls of my feet are killing me from all of the footwork/impact of the summer. I'm still teaching, but need a show with more cushion in the forefoot (I've...

    New (to me) Starting Method

    Hey guys. A friend of mine recently told me about the method that he was taught to use at a pro shop. I thought it was a bit odd, so I thought I'd let you all weigh in. Here it goes (my initial responses in bold): 1-lace the first 2 main strings (one on each side of the frame) far, so...

    Best Racquet for MRT Test?

    Hey guys...any suggestions? I'm thinking open pattern 16x19 or so (for ease of stringing). The big choice depends on grommet/bumper replacement. I'm thinking that Babolats can be a pain. Maybe a Head Radical Pro? Something decent I can sell off after the test. I'm a teaching pro that...

    Davydenko back to Prince? - Done with Dunlop already?!?

    I know there is another thread about this, but I'm just so shocked I wanted to start anew. As a loyal Prince player, I was a little tweaked when he went to Dunlop. This guy BASHED the Prince name last year, but now it looks like he wants back in. Here's a link to the original thread (page...
