    Since Adidas abandoned me as a customer...

    I'd also appreciate anyone's input on suitable replacement. Specifically I've been wearing the 2016 boost. Bought several pairs years ago bc I love them and have a very hard time finding shoes that work well for me. And to the OP, you definitely should look on the auction sites. With such a...

    Yonex Vcore Pro 97

    If you love the current one you have why mess around with the new model? You can probably find another one at a great price, specially if you don't mind buying a used one. For me, I rarely buy frames new. Secondary market is flooded with rackets people play for an hour or 2 and get rid of...

    Yonex Vcore Pro 97

    I think the days of the pros playing playing really heavy frames are coming to an end. These younger guys coming up now have played with lighter frames their whole careers and aren't gonna suddenly swith to a 13oz. racket. Sent from my SM-G973U using Tapatalk

    Yonex Vcore Pro 97

    310 for me too.. Great low powered, headlight frame.. You need to generate your own power as with all players sticks. Haven't hit the 330 bc its simply too heavy. Anything over about 340g total weight is just too much for me.. I get fatigued after an hour and start playing like sh#t Sent from...

    Yup,.. I've even seen a few kids hitting it, which is rare. Most kids don't like this type of frame. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk

    And don't discount the mental aspect of all this technical stuff.. If you believe it helps you play better.. THEN IT DOES! Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk

    another lead tape question

    Absolutely.. Not saying there isn't a benefit to matching frames.. I have mine matched as well. As I said mine are matched for static weight and balance point primarily. I have a somewhat meticulous mind and can get caught up with all the technical stuff too. I'm just saying that there comes a...

    another lead tape question

    Probably very close to same sw, assuming both rackets are the same model of course. It gets more and more complicated the more you learn about all the factors. I think it can become detrimental to your game if you're constantly think about it anyway. You have a bad day on the court and all...

    Yup... Lead tape, a scale, and the edge of a table to hang the racket over. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk

    I hear ya. It can get overwhelming.. When I match frames I just look at static weight and balance point Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk

    another lead tape question

    Don't think you can expand(or enlarge if that's what you meant) the sweet spot on any frame, only slightly shift it higher or lower on the face using lead. Very slightly at that unless using a tremendous amount of extra weight. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk

    Modifying Vcore Pro 97 310

    Yup.. You played the tec 315ltd for years, right? Me too. Still love that stick, still have 3 of them. As Ive gotten older I needed something a bit lighter bc the tec, although an amazing stick, was just a little too heavy for me with the lead. Found myself fatigued after a few sets. The Yonex...

    Modifying Vcore Pro 97 310

    Not really. Heavy topspin forehand that's a weapon when I'm on and a nightmare when I'm off. Backhand a little flatter but still decent spin, definitely my more reliable shot. . . Played at higher tensions my whole life regardless of what frame I was using. , just what I'm used to. Whenever I've...

    I play it with full bed of tour bite 17 at 56#..yes pretty high but I like a really dead stringbed.. Very low powered, but lots of feel. Few years in with this frame and I'm very pleased. Think Yonex really got it right with this one Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk

    The Official Lead Tape Placement+Racket Customization Thread

    No right answer here.. Whatever you feel is most important. And in practice vs theory you are going to be splitting hairs anyway. A few grams of weight or a few points of sw are just about impossible to notice unless you are a touring pro. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk

    The Official Lead Tape Placement+Racket Customization Thread

    I think if you are strictly just trying to match frames without changing playing characteristics you should put lead at the midpoint of the frame, usually right in the yoke.. If someone knows otherwise feel free to correct me Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk

    Frances Tiafoe with Yonex

    Saw him up close last night at the open.. Looks like he's playing vcore pro, could be a paint job I guess but you can't mistake that head shape. Obviously couldn't say if it's the 310 or 330. I'd think it's the 330. He hits the hell out of his forehand, btw. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk

    No, but ive never had arm issues(knock wood) with full bed of poly in any frame so I'm not necessarily the right person to ask. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk

    I'd give yourself some adjustment time with it before rushing to the lead tape. I felt the same way about it at first, thought it needed a little help. After playing a while with it now I think it's fine in stock form.. But, of course, each of us are different

    Downsizing Grip - Pallet Change services

    They did 3 grip reductions with Head pallets for me.. Flawless job. Highly recommend!

    why does a smaller grip = more topspin? or does it?

    I prefer smaller grip size also. I'm a 4.5 grip size using tradional way of measuring. I play with a 4.25. But it's just personal preference. Smaller size feels easier to maneuver the racket.

    Are you referring to ****? If so I highly recommend them. They reduced 3 frames for me. Tecnifibre 315ltds, which use the head pallets, leather grip. Flawless job. Spend the money, removing and replacing pallets isn't that easy.

    Switched to the 310 about a month ago. Very happy with it. First time using a yonex frame.
