    Ymers shoes?

    Great pic, thanks! Fila was right. This model has a mid foot shank/plate, that I didnt see on the models I found online.

    Ymers shoes?

    Yeah, used to play with Pure Drive but switched a while back. In the beginning he put black paint on the Blade that wore off with play. No stencil on the strings. Same mystery shoe right now in the match against Kyrgios, but with the outer sides painted black.

    Yeah, I know that. Any idea of what kind of shoes he was wearing?

    Ymers shoes?

    He's been using Adidas forever, in Washington the Barricade. But in his match against Korda he played in a shoe I couldn't identify. The logo on the inside of the shoe looked kinda like the Pacific logo. Any ideas? Maybe he brought too few pairs of shoes or someone offered him a bundle of cash...

    Don't play Hyper-G 1.25, play HEAD Lynx Tour 1.25 ...

    I never tried the 1.20 mm. But when I restrung with Hyper G Soft I tried a different tension (48/46) and felt so at home and happy that I just said screw it, LT is not for me, regardless of gauge. Could be good, I don't know, but I figured I like softer setups so I sold the reel to a friend who...

    I've played with both, and prefer Hyper G Soft.

    court ff2 - ss ff2 - gr8 all court DILEMMA

    Quick note regarding larger in size: this was only true of the darker of the new colorways. For some reason! The light blue one was OK. I got my money back from the return and bought three pairs of the light blue one instead. :-D

    I had my first session on hardcourt with the LT 1,25 mm today. (Only played with it on clay up to this point.) And it was a very different experience. I could not get proper pace on my shots, or spin either. Maybe it was just one of those days but I'm cutting them out since I have a tournament...

    Others seem have noticed the 1,20 mm existing now, as well. So I just ordered a reel. If it is real (!), I'll let you know.

    Hm, I understand. It's a hassle posting pictures here and I don't want to post a link to a competing website. But they must have made a mistake. The image of the reel says 1,25 mm, I noticed, but when I clicked to add it in my items I could only choose 1,20 mm. Mistake on their part, I guess, if...

    I am trying out Head Lynx Tour 1.25 in my new Ezone 98 (2022). Used to play with Hyper G Soft, but the quick tension loss became a problem. I like the Lynx Tour. It has a predictable response and good touch. But has anyone tried it in 1.20 mm? I wonder if it might give me a little more zip and...

    Why did ATP’s TennisTV make a “Nadal injury” highlight video?

    I agree. They are producing clips with click-inducing titles, to compete with everyone else doing the same. Like this one ("RARE"): It is worse in the case with Rafas injuries, though, because it could be seen as bad form.

    Gel Res 8 back in stock?

    I always felt they were typical in size. I've had 6 pairs identical in size since launch. Now they are different. You can see it with the naked eye and the fit tells the tale. The only possible explanation for what you are saying is that one factory has been making shoes for the US, and another...

    I think the shoe was launched right before the pandemic, btw? I got the first colorway, I remember.

    I see. This seems to be a new thing, though. The GR 8s from the fall season had the same size that they've had since the launch of the model.

    Gel Res 8 back in stock?

    Exactly! I'm getting toe jams as well. But worse of all is the plantar acting up. The foot moves around and the elongated sole is too flat for a snug fit. Must be a factory change, or mistake, because why would they screw the consumer? Today I resorted to my personal orthotics, to avoid wasting...

    Gel Res 8 back in stock?

    Thanks! I'll look into it and maybe drop him a line. He screamtalks a bit too much for my taste (and some views are bonkers, like creasing on the midsole means they are shot) but he sure has a lot of experience with shoes.

    Gel Res 8 back in stock?

    So the new (colorways of) GR8s are longer than prior seasons - and I am having a hard time playing in them. Especially my right foot, as it is smaller, is moving around and I am starting to feel the plantar fasciiatis. Any tips on shoes with a similiar fit, ie narrow around the midfot, with...

    Gel Res 8 back in stock?

    A small warning. The darker colorway (with the yellow heel) is actually larger than previous GR8s I've owned. A bit too much for me to be comfortable, as of yet. I've had around 6 pairs so far, so I am not imagining things. I have not started playing in the light blue version but I imagine they...

    New to stringing, Is it okay to use a double or triple clamp as a starting clamp?

    Thank you, I understand. But could I make do with 1 double and 1 triple and the starting clamp I already own? I've been watching a few of your videos on starting mains with flying clamps and a starting clamp, and it looks like I should. I'm only used to fixed clamps and the way some people...

    New to stringing, Is it okay to use a double or triple clamp as a starting clamp?

    Sorry to bump an old thread, but just to make sure. I'm in the process of ordering a stringway machine - and in their offer they included an extra triple flying clamp. (One double and one triple comes with the machine.) I already own a starting clamp. If I read these instructions correctly, I...

    Gel Res 8 back in stock?

    With my pair, it is wider, for sure. It's my sixt pair of GR8. All the other colors have been slimmer in the front. Width of the shoes are not accounted for in EU, so I don't know if they are wider by purpose or accident, so to speak. Then I don't know if it is just my pair or all in that...
