    My experience with flexy vs stiff racquets

    I have tried many rackets with different RAs and setups (stated not measured) and coming from tennis elbow, I have found that its got more to do with weight, SW, strings and tension, then RA rating alone. Sure low RA (<62) helps but even higher RA rackets can feel very comfortable, or vice versa...

    Yonex Vcore Pro 97

    with total of 4gr at 11&2 and dampener, replacement grip and OG, mine is 340gr and 328-330SW and 5HL. with only 2 grams total at 10&2, it is like to be close to 325SW and more than 5HL.

    Yonex Vcore Pro 97

    Also find this the best setup, 2 grs around fhe 2nd cross is like 11&1 (2.6 sw per gram) and with dampener it comes to around 330SW (317 + 2.6 x 4 + 2) which also matches when measured and calculated by the TW swing weight tool. I also tried with 1.25 grams and it was also very good but...

    if you love Head PT630, you may also like K7 Lime which I use extensively, it has a more plush feeling than TC97, depends on the feel preference. I was thinking of trying TC97 18x20 but Paul said if I have the Lime, its pretty close in structure (even the same grommets I think) and he said i...

    Yonex Vcore Pro 97

    Currently have full Technifiber X-one Biphase (strung at 47pounds), and provides plenty of power and comfort, but lacking some control and spin, so probably would be better to hybrid with poly in the crosses. My arm is too sensitive for poly even in the mains right now..

    Yonex Vcore Pro 97

    Yes I also like the lower launch angle, especially coming from a 18x20. However, I didn't have such issues with 18x20 with a lower launch angle (but higher SW), so I think its more about the loop weight than the technique... what is your customization by the way?

    Yonex Vcore Pro 97

    I have recently started playing with VCP 310 coming from a 98inch 18x20 control oriented racket looking for more spin with stability and comfort, especially for my singles game. To be safe it is strung with a 16g multi at 47lbs, so plenty of power and comfort too. Customized with 1.5 grams at...

    YONEX EZone 98+ first look?

    I am also quite happy with the new Ezone 98 with some customization, so I dont think I will go for DR version, but will work on my strength and condition to be able to handle extended length for longer periods.. I also have an Angell Lime 98 which has a similar plush feeling and very stable, so...

    YONEX EZone 98+ first look?

    Thank you for your insights, really helpful. Yes I realized that with the extended version games are shorter, but I do get tired faster (especially now that its hot and very humid outside), even with additinal SW of only 10. But the feeling is addictive..

    YONEX EZone 98+ first look?

    I have rexently been playing with new EZONE 98 which i got theough a great deal, it played great especially on serves and groundstrokes. However, the extended version feeling is different, it is more muted, less crisp, and more comfortable. For me at least a much better feling, and nit too...

    Yonex EZONE (2018)

    mine is currently Yonex Rexis 16 Mult mains and Wilson Revolve Co-poly 17 crosses at 53/49... needed something comfortable and easy on the arm not knowing how it will feel. Also wanted to have it less spiny and more powerful/good feel for my flatter game. Maybe even will switch to NG mains in...

    Yonex EZONE (2018)

    totally agree, 1-2 grams at 10 & 2 makes it more stable too.. tried at 9&3 but did t like the way it felt on serves, made it less easy somehow...

    Yonex EZONE (2018)

    i would say they are similarly stable in stock form, K7s are very unique in that their composition which makes them flexible and stable.. for hard hitters may need some lead and this applies to Ezone 98 as well. I like the crisp feel of Ezone when playing aggresive game, and i think you cannot...

    Yonex EZONE (2018)

    Hi, I was just commenting on comfort and power, K7 both are similar in comfort, and K7 Lime is slightly more powerful than Red due to higher weight in stock form.. the point was ezone 98 is a good option for power and comfort, sorry for not being clear maybe. And yes compared to both Lime and...

    Yonex EZONE (2018)

    I was also looking for the same, coming from playing with Angel K7 Lime, same stifness with K7 Red. I now mainly use Ezone 98, which is still comfortable but crisper, offering easier power and easier serves. Vcore is more stiff than Ecore, so havent tried that. But i had to increase weight and...

    Yonex EZONE (2018)

    This is pretty much the same story as mine.. I haven't used any Yonex before, but used and tried many other brands and models (generally 18x20, Prince & Wilson) and more recently Angels. Most recently I have been using Prince TT100P/TT95 and also Angell Lime (98, 18x20), most of the time the...

    Yonex Vcore 98 vs. Ezone 98

    Yes indeed, unstrung 63 RA, 310gr and 9pts HL. Strung with 2 OGs and few grams lead tape, weight reaching 340gr and SW around 325. didnt measure HL but probably around 6, its not very HL.

    Yonex Vcore 98 vs. Ezone 98

    I demoed TC100 but now switched to Ezone 98 from Prince TT100P... TC100 was strung poly/gut hybrid whereas for Ezone was multi/poly hybrid. For power, I found them similar at this setup, however Ezone had more control with a lower launch angle. Also Ezone string pattern is not too open, more...

    New Phantom Pro (18x20) (320)

    Thats a good idea and I plan to, yes all reviews/feedbacks were great on volleys.. I had natural gut/poly on my tt100p and it does work really well of volleys too... what would be your thoughts on the lbs/kgs for the 18x20? Thinking of maybe 46-47lbs mains & 49/50 crosses...

    New Phantom Pro (18x20) (320)

    Thank you for this, and I though I would also share my experiences... I have now used PP 18x20 for several weeks in singles and doubles, after using TT100P (2015) for several years now after many many years from competitive college tennis. TT100P was giving me some wrist/arm ache recently also...

    Hi Drogan, was also TT100P user but recently ordered TT95 18x20 and Phantom 93p, TT95 being slightly lighter and less HL... how has your experience been with these? Based on different reviews, TT95 maybe has more power and more of a baseline game oriented, while Phantom 93p is more all court...

    New Phantom Pro (18x20) (320)

    Hi, I had a similar experience, so I decided to have gut strings and also a little tape on the hoop, what is your setup and have you experimented with strings/hoop tape?

    New Phantom Pro (18x20) (320)

    Yes I switched from full poly @48 to full gut (syngut) at 50lbs and it still plays with good control, doesnt feel too plush, still good feel and connected and has got some power now,. My volleys and serves were very low powered with full poly, and my stroke is generally quite flat and powerful...

    Sure, its all relative, personal and subjective.. for me, it was too powerful and not enough control/precision, and can not even imagine the PDs for my game/power.

    Have been following the recent great comments and feedbacks on different racquets, and given so many good racquets from Angell (and also Prince in my opinion) , I am really enjoying different racquets and each of their strenghts and characteristics, so I play with different ones depending on who...

    New Phantom Pro (18x20) (320)

    I would have thought that 100 is more forgiving and would player easier than 93p, but 93p would also be quite a precise weapon on the net too. It could be the strings as pointed out... It was strange for me, when I switched to my singles racket (TT100P) which is more powerful, I was doing much...

    New Phantom Pro (18x20) (320)

    Actually, weights are very similar, with OG & Dampener & 1 gr lead; mine comes to 343 grams. HL was without OG, so you could more correct. I don't think there are big issues here in my opinion... I just could not get the precision I was expecting from the net game, but I think I need to more...
