    This new racquet from Dunlop looks very promising. Stock specs are perfect for me and i like black PJ too. It looks like slightly heavier and a bit more headlite version of Bio F3.0 tour. Anybody have some early experience with this racquet ...

    Review - Yonex VCORE Tour 97 (310g)

I play mostly with POG 100 these days so i will compare Yonex to Prestige and POG in this review. So far i played with...

    I have chance to demo a few tweeners with my friends. Here are my impressions after 3 days of hitting. Wilson Juice - Older model (2011 or 2012). Worst from the banch for me. I didn't like how it swings. It felt more head heavy than other racquets with similar weight and balance, yet...

    Disappointed with Nadal

    It was unfortunate that he was injured in the final. Although he had no chance to beat god mode Wawrinka, it could be at least entertaining final. But i was disappointed how he can't handle his bad fortune. When his psyhical problems show up, he just concentrated so that everybody knows that...

    Same poly in full bed, just thinner crosses

    I strung my racquet with full bed poly, but i used thinner gauge for crosses. Preciselly SP Hyberion (1.24)/ SP Hyperion (1.18 ). As expected stringbed felt softer and more comfortable and provided a bit more spin than full bed of 1.24 gauge. And because mains always breaks 1st and are more...

    Racquet headsize related to court surface

    I play about 95% on red clay, but sometimes in winter season i play on hard courts too. Me and all my sparrings noticed that playing on HC is much much easier. Ball jumps a little bit faster, a little bit lower and bounce is very predictable and constant. I noticed that i prefer midsize racquet...
