    VCore Tour F

    coming from the ezone xi98 and ai98, and having played the tour G frames, I'm not crazy about it. it's not bad, the F 97, but just feels a little boardy, stiff, and not as plush, flexy, powerful and even accurate as my ezone experiences. but that's just me!

    Sony smart sensor review (SSE-TN1)

    Wait, are you serious? If so, how do you know your serve clocks in at 120? If not, forgive me- my sarcasm detector is buried under a number of beers...

    Does Wrist Band Affect Swing???

    Can a wristband affect your swing? Sure. It would affect my swing, because I don't like the feeling of a wristband on my arm. But let us not confuse this with a claim that equates the wearing of a wristband to adding significant weight (say, ten feet of lead tape) to the frame itself...

    Textreme Tour 95: What the ProStaff 95 Should Be

    Gentlemen, those aren't for tennis- way, way too heavy, you could do some serious damage wearing that thing and swinging a racquet. I mean, how do you think the hand in the photo became detached from the arm???

    am I stupid?

    One of my favorite aspects of the tour G is also what led me to lean a little more heavily on the xi 98. When simply hitting, just swinging away from the baseline, the 330 is so much fun! But during a competitive match or situation- running hard, scrambling for every ball, trying to work some...

    am I stupid?

    Everybody seems to LOVE the ai98, but I never really hit too extensively with it. The xi 98, to me, is a hidden gem. Maybe a touch more power than the ai 98, and a fair amount more than the g 330. I love the control of the g, it is ridiculous, but it asks just a little too much of my old arms...

    am I stupid?

    it's a beauty, right?! I have to admit, though, that after everything, I've gravitated towards the Xi 98!

    Textreme Tour 95: What the ProStaff 95 Should Be

    Sweet fancy Moses! Has anybody even thought about the complex interplay between racquet, lead, human wrists and wristband(s) in the execution of a two handed backhand?

    Thank you! So, the textreme tour 95 appears to be Sony tennis sensor ready, but is it wristband compatible?

    New AI100 paint job

    I wonder when we'll start seeing the "E" versions here... And I, for one, am glad they didn't throw that new cosmetic on the beautifully goofy tron-inspired ai 98.

    were you wearing a wristband on your sawing hand? how did it affect your sawing motion?

    Textreme Tour 95: What the ProStaff 95 Should Be

    just make sure to watch the moisture content of the wristband- things could get all crazy if the perfect balance isn't maintained...

    Favorite or best Yonex racquet.

    I have two, strung, never hit with, in my mom's basement half way across the country. It seems I need to break those out! Pretty happy with the xi and ai 98, but the ai98 is probably my "all timer" pick...

    VCore Tour F

    hmm, I must disagree. From the ezone Xi 98 to Ai 98 to the Vcore tour g, I've played with some pretty flexible and comfortable racquets. And none of those feel even remotely close to those babolat things people love...
