    Gravity vs Clash

    Thanks, great input. The way you describe your experience with the Gravity Pro and Gravity Tour, I feel the same. In fact I've used the G Pro for my service games and G Tour when receiving. Since our experiences match there, I appreciate your comments on the other rackets. Re the Clash, I...

    Appreciate the reply. Hope to try the Clash one day.

    Gravity vs Clash

    Thanks for your reply. Yeah, with Gravity for me it's a real effort to try to generate all the power all the time. When I hit about for 5 mins with the Pure Aero, while it's not got the same comfortable feel, the free power is there and my balls seem to land deeper (if you'll pardon the expression).

    Gravity vs Clash

    Thanks, appreciate your reply. Yeah, agree that Gravity has a nice traditional feel.

    Gravity vs Clash

    This thread is just what I need - thanks. I currently use Gravity Tour. Got a Gravity Pro and love the feel, but it's just too heavy for longer games. I also have Pure Aero Team - the lightest racket I've ever owned. I bought that about 2 years ago, before I bought the Gravity rackets. However...

    Thanks for your input, it's much appreciated.

    Yonex VCore Pro 330 or 310?

    Thanks for that detailed reply - it's very much appreciated. Got both my Gravity Pro and tour strung with Head Lynx. Mains 48lb / Crosses 50lb. I'll have a look into the Clash, though not used a Wilson since the Wilson Ultra Graphite in the early 1990s!

    Yonex VCore Pro 330 or 310?

    Thanks for your reply and input. Yes, I expect the 97HD would not be a good fit for me. Have considered the rackets you suggest, just tricky to know before buying. Wish Babolat Pure Aero was more arm friendly as I loved the free power. The RA71 caused far too much pain. The RA62 of Head Gravity...

    Yonex VCore Pro 330 or 310?

    Hi guys, wonder if anyone can help here. I bought a Pure Aero Team (strung weight 303g). Loved hitting with it, but it wrecked my arm. Then got a Head Gravity Pro, brilliant feel, but it's just too heavy (strung weight 340g). Then got Gravity Tour and settled on that (strung weight 330g) ...

    Asics Gel Resolution 8

    Like many people on this thread I bought my usual size, it fits perfectly in width, but is slightly longer in the toe. I can double sock and put up with that, but I have one other issue and just wondered if anyone else had it and found a solution. Part of the shoe seems to touch my right ankle...

    Head Gravity

    With the new paint, there's no consistency of brand evolution. With so many brands out there (and existing Head lines) with so many colours, why build on one existing colour...yet suddenly throw in two new colours (blue and purple) on the others side? (rhetorical question). For me it was unique...

    Head Gravity

    Thanks for sharing. With paints, it's all about personal opinion. However what I don't get, is why they played with the teal (at least a similar green) into a yellow gradient...but dropped the coral altogether. There's no consistency of brand evolution. With so many brands out there (and...

    Head Gravity

    Thanks, I appreciate your info and input here. It's a tricky choice for me with the Gravity rackets. My serve is much better and more powerful with the G Pro than with the G Tour, but I'm much more consistent and safe with the Tour. So, I don't make a choice, I use interchangeably as I find them...

    Head Gravity

    I find the Gravity Pro and Tour very comfortable on the arm. I've heard the Yonex VCore Pro 97HD is another comfort option with a similar plush feel. As I am unable to test that racket, anyone done so and can offer an experienced comparison with that and the Gravity rackets? Thanks.

    Head Gravity

    I have a Gravity Pro and a Gravity Tour - great rackets, I like to switch between them during games. Had hoped that when there was an aesthetic evolution, that it would be to settle on one of the existing colours and stick it on both sides. Think the new paint job will be a bit too teenagery for me.

    Head Gravity

    'I'm also having thoughts of buying either another Pro, or picking up a Tour' - I'm also in the same boat, for the same reasons as you. I just worry I'll buy the latter and regret it after a hit or two. I just don't have a chance to demo it first as I'm not living in the states.

    It's strung with Lynx Tour 17 at 50/48 pounds.

    Head Gravity

    Just stripped off the grip and dampener. My Gravity pro strung static weight = 336g. Dampener, over grip and tape for grip brings it to 348g.

    Head Gravity

    I really like the idea of this, but still, I have no idea how you're getting to 329g - 332g all in. Well done anyway as I'd like to get mine down a bit, but for my Gravity Pro strung with Head Lynx Tour 17 + a thin 5mg overgrip + a small 3mg dampener = static 346g.

    Head Gravity

    Hey, just wondering - did you get the Tour in the end? If so, would be great to hear how it went.

    Head Gravity

    No, not checked the SW. Don't have access to a machine so would have to try do it all at home, which I don't think will work out so accurately.

    Head Gravity

    As I say, love the Pro, but it gets me tired and a bit sluggish after a while. Expect MP would be too light for me. As a teenager in the 90s I grew up using Donnay rackets at 350g. Never felt comfortable playing with anything much lighter since, but a bit less now would be good. All said and...

    Thanks for taking the time to reply - lots of great insight here. Can I ask - why sell your Tours? Also, why is the MP+ between the Pro and Tour?

    Good to know, thanks for taking the time to reply. That's my only real issue, I find it quite tiring.

    Head Gravity

    Hi there, Played with my Head Gravity Pro quite a bit now and love it. No arm pain with this one and the initial fears I had of faulty racket subsided as the rackets vibration around the tip seemed to settle right down after a few hits. Like others, the only thing I find, is it's a bit...
