    Adidas Ubersonic 4 Thread

    Seconded. My pair is starting to wear thin and very much need to order another pair. Maybe two or three!

    Tennis shoes low to the ground

    Same reaction as Turbo-87. I've worn the Ubersonic 2s and now have the 4s. Both seem very low to the ground. Babolat Jet Mach IIIs get a lot of love.

    Asics Gel Resolution 8

    Just got my first pair of Gel Res 8. I haven't played with them yet, but just comparing them to the FF2, they look huge & boxy. I've been using the Adidas Ubersonic 2s for a long time and appreciated the low-to-the-ground feel. I'm currently testing out the Ubersonic 4s, FF2, and the GR8s.

    Wilson Rush Pro 3.5

    I did some footwork drills in these and found my toe was constantly bumping into the front of the shoe. I assumed I just needed a bigger size, so I exchanged them for a half-size up. Same issue. So these will have to be returned.

    Tennis racquet “fitting”

    There must not be much money to be made by selling racquets and tennis shoes. Like many clubs, my club has a racquet demo program. That's it. It's a wonderful club and they find a lot of ways to make money. They sell and string racquets, and sell a few types of shoes, but don't have any...

    Shorter inseam shorts that are worth the price?

    I've generally been very happy with Adidas, Babolat, and Under Armour shorts. I find that I have to try on a bunch of options to find ones that fit right, so glad that TW makes returns easy. A lot of shorts end up being too baggy or too long. In terms of non-tennis shorts, I have a bunch of...

    How do you evaluate shoes?

    Once every few years I need to re-evaluate my shoe of choice. It's that time again (so long Ubersonic 2s). I can immediately eliminate some shoes because they don't feel quite right. But some shoes need to be broken in. And you need to play in a shoe to know how it responds. But for a variety of...

    Want to pair a different racket with my Blade 98 16x19

    I have a similar question, but let me pose it in a different way. I play with the Blade 98 v7 16x19 with Luxilon Element strings at 45 lbs. I've been using this racquet and the CV before it for a few years and love it a lot. But I haven't play tested racquets in a very long time and I'm curious...

    What are the lighter tennis shoes for wide feet?

    I love the 2s, didn't like the 3s, and am desperately waiting for 4s to become available. Definitely a lightweight, low-to-the-ground shoe. My sense is that they are on the wide side.

    Adidas Ubersonic 4 Thread

    A TW customer service rep told me that the Ubersonic 4s are discontinued and will not be back in stock. I presume this was a mistake. But thought I would throw it out here in case others have heard anything similar.

    Adidas Ubersonic 4 Thread

    Any ideas when these will be more widely available? They never seem to be in stock (in my size) on TW.

    New Asics Court FF 2

    Ditto. Do they come in and get snatched up quickly? Or are they not coming in?

    Alternative to double socks

    I've done this a bit also. As others have said, Thorlos are a good alternative. My experience is that you have to a lot of trial and error to figure out what works best. For me, some socks that aren't that thick still work great. I've also been experimenting with an insole, which seems to work...
