    Hi. How are they going? Still enjoying comfort? How is the durability going? My concern is always the bottom of the soles. I have also had nike vapor 9.5s in the past if you could compare them.

    Wilson releasing Pro Staff 97S for Dimitrov (specs. included)

    I had the exact same problem with the RF97!!! It was one of the main reasons i switched back to my ps 85's. I mix up my spin, pace and trajectories a lot. I found it incredible difficult when trying to flatten out winners on the offence with the Rf97 but who knows it may also be partly to do...

    Very nice review. I agree that the 97s is much closer to the RF than the 90's and 85. However, for me there are some key differences between the 97s and RF97. 1. beam width - the racquet feels much more manoeuvrable, nimble and precise as a result. 2. flexibilty/feel - with 4G strung at 48 this...

    Thanks. As PeterFig said its always the gut mains that break first. Do you find that your set up is holding up pretty well? Ive also wondered whether a thicker gauge poly cross would prolong the life of the gut or reduce it. Any speculation on this? I found this racquet to be such a perfect...

    Im also wondering how i should customise the handle. Ive put lead on the handle under the leather grip on other racquets before which works fine for me but I'm wondering if i should concentrate the weight closer to the but cap for a more efficient increase in HL balance or spread the weight out...

    Thanks PeterFig! I think i will probably go for a hybrid then. Did you ever use 4G as a cross? Good to hear that the durability is good!

    What about strings in this racquet? Ive used a full bed of luxilon 4G at 48 pounds. It seemed to work well in this racquet but obviously i would have to compare it to other set ups. I would string it just a little bit tighter (around 50) though as the ball was flying on me a bit on a hot sunny...

    CourtKing... that is your opinion.... lol. Doesn't mean that is the case for everyone else. I myself am a prostaff 85 user. I have used the 90s extensively and i used the rf 97 for a few months. The RF is my least favourite out of all of them.... Its just a completely different beast - too...

    Rf97 with multifilament?

    Hi. I am thinking of stringing my rf97 with a multifilament. I want to try it because i liked multis in the tour 90s. I play with a lot of touch so i think i like it for this reason. Im getting it strung at the club's pro shop so i still have to see what multis are available. I am going to...

    RF97 string advice for less power

    So you're saying that you get a much lower launch angle with the solinco outlast 18? That's really what i want. I guess thats how i should have described it earlier. I really want a lower launch angle. How was the feel/touch? I was just looking around for information on how to decrease launch...

    Hi. Thanks for having a look at the thread. My rf97 is strung with RF's setup 59 mains 56 crosses. Long story short i want a lower launch angle with less power and more control/feel but i don't want more spin. I feel like i need something that doesn't "grab" at the ball so much. I'm an...

    Review: Wilson RF97Autograph vs tour 90s and ps85

    Everyone seems to be going on about how powerful and heavy the rf97 is but i have a somewhat different perspective. Firstly, in terms of power, yes the rf97 is overall more powerful than the 90s and ps85. However, i don't think it always gives you more pace of shot on every type of shot. I...

    Review: Wilson RF97Autograph vs tour 90s and ps85

    Hi so a lot of people have posted reviews of the rf97 but i don't think there has been an extensive comparison with the 90s and ps 6.0 85. I have used the tour 90s extensively in the past since a teenager but switched to the ps 6.0 85 recently because i preferred it. I love my ps 6.0 85 but...

    Wrist snap question

    "The cocked wrist position involved with wrist snap is not actually laid back" What i meant by this was that hand pronation / c0cked wrist actually involves using your forearm muscles to keep it in that position - those muscles are flexing.

    You didn't really address my posts, you just picked up on the minutiae. Yes i do hit a modern ww eastern forehand. No i am not mixing up wrist extension and wrist flexion. "The wrist does not have to been unc0cked in order to pronate the forearm." This doesn't make sense to me, are you...

    Wrist snap question

    If there is no definition/agreement of what wrist snap is, you can't argue whether it is or isn't a real phenomenon. You said that modern strokes have wrist action - why can't we call this "wrist snap"?. The cocked wrist position involved with wrist snap is not actually laid back, the muscles in...

    well i have an eastern forehand and i have a moderate amount of wrist pronation. I find that i have to flex my wrist/forearm muscles to ensure wrist pronation.

    Wrist snap question

    Can we even define what wrist snap is? I feel like i have "wrist snap" because my wrist seems to move from a backwards position before contact with the ball to a forwards position very quickly. Do i actually use wrist muscles to make that forward momentum? ... I don't know - i would have thought...
