    Anyone use Ashaway MonoGut ZX ?

    After a couple of weeks of playing on clay with a full bed of ZX the string bed has locked up. I might try to use ZX as a cross with gut mains. Or will this combo also get locked with play on clay?

    Blade Team 99 vs Steam 99

    I see you have it for sale now, and was curious what made you put it up for sale?

    Demo program?

    Wow Sweden is no longer part of the demo program? That is surprising. How come Sweden was pulled from the list, TWE ?

    Tried the New Wilson Triad XP5

    superdave3, do you know what strings were in the racket? It might be a good option for my dad who is also nearing 70. Unfortunately no demos available here.

    Blade Team 99 vs Steam 99

    Absence of molded handle does make you think that Wilson cut cormers with this one. You think Lite version strung with multi can work for a player with medium strokes and onehanded backhand?

    Blade Team 99 vs Steam 99

    Why do you think that? It doesn't feel like a solid frame? I'm considering buying it, but no demos where I live. At least it is cheap. Would get the Lite and add weight. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Denis Shapovalov to Yonex

    Are Yonex custom fit rackets the same as regular retail, but with weight added? Or are they pro stock (different layup, materials) like Head custom made rackets?

    Man, maybe i'm crazy, but i think the new RF97A 2018 is different from the 2016 version.

    That was my experience as well. Red/blk was more crisp, connected.

    prostaff 97 countervail "no feel"

    It seems many players dislike the addition of countervail to Wilsons frames. Too much dampening of feedback when hitting. On top of that the velvet paint also gives the frames a more muted feel in my experience.

    Babolat Pure Aero 2019

    It is the only way you could possibly lower the twist weight. A few issues though. It will probably change the feel depending on what you repaint with. It will not lower tw much if repaint weighs close to original paint. It is a lot of messy work to remove paint. You need to buy sandpaper...

    Babolat Pure Aero 2019

    Yes, and remember that twu only lists the specs of a single frame and not an average of several frames such as the specs listed on tw website.

    Babolat Pure Aero 2019

    I think the 2012 Pure Drive plus, that you use, has a lower twistweight than 2017. That could explain it. Or it could be other variations in weighting, stiffness and so on. F.ex. some like polarized and not depolarized weighting.

    Babolat Pure Aero 2019

    It is 2.7 points higher than the APD Cortex I play with. But compared to the first Pure Aero it is not much. Didn't like that one, it was sluggish, so was hoping they lowered twistweight on 2019 version.

    Babolat Pure Aero 2019

    I also found the 2017 Aero to have poor maneuverability. Maybe the lower SW will make up for the higher TW on new Aero. I agree it is the whole package that counts. Will definitely try it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Babolat Pure Aero 2019

    New Aero is up on TWU. Lower swingweight but higher twistweight than previous Aero. High tw usually makes a racquet sluggish for me, so a bit disappointed. Maybe somehow Babolat managed to weight it so it is still maneuverable.

    What about zyex(prestreched)/gut? Will it play closer to poly/gut hybrid?

    Is Wilson Discontinuing the Pro Staff 97?

    Yeah that is the one I mean. It is a very orangy red though. Too bad the cv mutes the frame so much, I like how the first PS97 is very crisp.

    Is Wilson Discontinuing the Pro Staff 97?

    Actually, I have not played the orange/black one either. But the red/black one plays great, just a little sluggish for me. Most likely they are all the same, and then there will be variances between each individual frame from the manufacturing process.

    Is Wilson Discontinuing the Pro Staff 97?

    Is the black PS97 the same as orange/black PS97? I know they are supposed to be the same, but sometimes manufacturers will tweak weight distribution slightly anyway. Twistweight on orange/black PS97 is very high, I am hoping it was lowered a little to increase maneuverability. An example is...

    Anyone tried or have thoughts about the new Wilson 6.1 Team 95

    Taro Daniel gets new PJ

    What do you want them to do? If they stick with the old paint jobs, they will go out of business fast.
