    Shot making racket?

    You already have THE racket model for this purpose. There is NOTHING better. You just need to decide which version of the Pure Drive you will play with. I prefer 2009 and 2012 versions. Never tried the 2015 version. 2018 is too open and muted for me. Not tried 2021 but probably better than 2018...

    Low, low tensions. 30lbs feels great. 20lbs pretty good, too

    Here are the original blog posts. I always wanted those links but figured out how to do it. Hopefully will be useful to someone. 1) How low can you go? http://web.archive.org/web/20100428234815/http://blog.tenniswarehouse.com/?p=1154 2) How low can I really go? Try 10lbs...

    Ezone 100 (2022) vs VCore Pro 100 (2022) vs Ezone 98 (2022)

    Honestly - I wouldnt trust comparisons from random people anyway. Demo them & Play with which one feels more comfortable to you and suits you eye/mind. "Cant handle power" - has to be solved with technique and technique only BUT lowest power of the 3 is the Vcore Pro 100 I beleive

    They need to get rid of older model lines and TW being the only US "supplier". It is convenient that these are REALLY good older models.

    Wilson Pro Labs: Blade Pro Official Thread

    What were the Swingweight specs of your 18x20 BP? If you got a 330SW version versus a 350SW version your feelings will be very different especially if you do not have the ability to handle the 350SW. I am no fan of the Blade Pro but you apparently got the wrong one - the 16x19 is where its at...

    Control racquet with power strings vs Power racquet with control strings

    Best to have power racquets (stiff) with control strings (also stiff) as long as wrist/arm/shoulder can tolerate it especially if required to beat the competition. If not Control racquets (soft) with power strings (also soft) or if playing just for fun. Typically something in between.

    I want to try the OGSM Super at some point. Honestly to get a valid comparison the only way to compare is fresh bed vs fresh bed not a random used bed on a random unknown racket strung by some random. Regular OGSM I find the following approx correlation 16g premium multi = 17g ogsm comfort...
