    Solecourt Boost Restock

    I saw that the Solecourt Boost in Ink/White got a restock today, with more coming July 31. All half sizes are listed between 8 and 14 except 10. I was wondering if those will ever be restocked, especially since the SoleCourt Boost is getting unfortunately discontinued and I was surprised they...

    TW Chris on barricade

    Hi Chris (or anyone), I'm looking for a shoe that replicates the fit, stability, and durability of the Adidas Barricade 7. The barricades that came after when they started putting in boost werent as good for me, and i tried the gel res 8, but it feels a little long and i miss the torsion system...

    Gel Res 8 cannot replace Barricade 7.. need recommendation

    mm i was thinking about the newer barricade, but i was a bit concerned that they dont have the outsole guarantee. I guess they want to compete with the court ff more than the gel res. I will wait for more reviews on the durablity of the new ones while i wear through the gel res.

    Gel Res 8 cannot replace Barricade 7.. need recommendation

    Would you say go half a size down and going wide? They feel a little long to me in the forefoot but the arch position is good.

    Gel Res 8 cannot replace Barricade 7.. need recommendation

    It just doesnt fit my foot shape in the toe box well. The barricade toe box is a little more square rather than longer and thinner I also dont like that there is no torsional flexibility in the midfoot, since the outsole is one wide piece rather than a thinner shank area, feels a little too...

    Gel Res 8 cannot replace Barricade 7.. need recommendation

    My favorite shoe of all time has been the barricade 7, but since Djokovic left adidas they havent been made anymore. I tried the newer barricade boosts a few years ago (2016?) but i didnt feel as supported and I didnt like the tread pattern as much, so I went back to my stock of barricade 7s. I...

    Holger Rune blacked out racket?

    No this model was released 2020, assuming the racket is the same as implied by the cosmetic. Hard to tell if he's added weight anywhere.

    Ultimate racquet of choice - tournament players and/or coaches

    Yeah prokennex is good in theory, but I also hate feeling and the beads moving around inside between shots. It feels like you're swinging around something with sand in it or maracas or something. As for the stiffness, some people get more issues from stiffer rackets due to higher frequency...

    Ultimate racquet of choice - tournament players and/or coaches

    Saw you were questioning the aero vs, I highly recommend it. It is exactly what you'd expect from an aero with sightly smaller head and slightly thinner beam. I like the whippy feeling stock but a couple of grams at 10 and 2 could really make it a more traditional racket with spin tech. I keep...

    Tennis Shoes recommendation - feet pain

    Gel Res 8 forefoot cushioning is top notch, and it's one the most, if not most, stable shoes to hit the market since the old barricades

    Durable poly at high tension

    I've been enjoying RPM blast 16G strung at 60-62lbs for years now, but it's a little expensive and I'm looking for a new alternative. I love the high tension but when it starts loosening up I really do not enjoy the trampolining effect that starts to appear within a couple weeks, so something...

    Manual hold on order

    Hello, I ordered a matched pair of strung rackets last week, and I checked the order status and it was sent to the stringer on Friday and now it says "Order Status : Manual Hold - This order will not ship until manually released." Is this a TW internal hold on the order or is there something...

    Racquet for kid/toddler

    For something he'll grow out of pretty quick, there isn't really any difference at such a young age. It comes down to if you have any brand loyalties or if they make a racket that looks like yours so he can think "oh I'm just like dad/mom!"

    Need racket recommendation for my dad

    thank you for your concern with the demo strings. hopefully one weekend of demos wont be too bad especially since he's already been playing with my elbow death setup so any improvement would be good for him. its a shame the demo number has been reduced to 3 since there are so many good options...

    Need racket recommendation for my dad

    Thank you! Yeah I'll see if the extended length would be something he wants to try but the warrior is definitely something I'll get him to demo

    Need racket recommendation for my dad

    Yeah I was definitely going to put on a multi or soft poly for him. I don't have much experience with them, so I appreciate the velocity recommendation!

    Need racket recommendation for my dad

    Any reason why the 7g over the 5g? I'm not sure if he will be used to the heft or like the extended length since he's not very tall. Can always get demo of both for him.

    Need racket recommendation for my dad

    Hello! I play with the Aeropro Drive and a full bed of rpm blast strung at 60lbs. I know that's a recipe for elbow death but it's how I've played for years and I'm still youngish so not too concerned yet (will probably replace the setup soon since the rackets are aging). My dad, however, isn't...
