    Pure Aero 98 Club

    It plays nicely for me @ 48 lbs. Good solid feel and easy spin. I really enjoy this setup and will probably stick with it for awhile. A friend of mine recommended I try Snapper from Toroline so I might try that in my second PA98.

    Not to 330+sw. Definitely worth some experimenting with though. But right now I’m enjoying the PA98 stock with OG.

    The EZ98 is an easier racquet to use for sure. It's been my main racquet for about a year now and been playing well with it. It's whippier which allow you to create angles and loopier shots. Serves are effortless, as you can just snap your wrist to create nasty slice serves and powerful flat...

    That's very interesting, I picked up a pair of PA98 from a local club member and I restrung one of them with Toroline K-Pro @ 48# and found that my slices stays low and skids. I do agree though, this is definitely an offensive weapon. The more I attack, the more confidence I gain, and the harder...

    I'm thinking about trying out the PA98. I've been playing with the EZ98 with 3g at 12 for over a year now. Although I'm playing well, also interested in trying other racquets. I usually string @ 48# on the EZ98, should I stick with 48# on the PA98 or go up in tension? Going to try it out stock...

    Grapplesnake/Tru Pro/Solinco

    I have a pack of DF that I might try in my EZ98 next. Currently have Mayami Tour Hex 1.23 @ 48 lbs, and it plays soft and smooth. For people who has play both DF and Tour Hex, how do they compare in power and spin?

    I just picked up a reel and going to string them up in my ezone 98. Can anyone compare the atmos to grapplesnake tour sniper? Or mayami tour hex?

    I recently just switch from BP to Ezone98 with 3g @ 12 + OG as my main stick. But all this love for the WO XTD really has me thinking.. I've never play with XTD racquets before. Does the standard WO 18x20 play similar? Just less SW? Can anyone compare the E98 to the WO? Also recently tried a...

    Ezone 98 v Pure Aero 98

    I recently switch to the E98 as my main stick and finally getting dialed in. Such an easy racquet to pick up and play good tennis. I was worried the low swing weight might require some time to adjust to but that wasn’t the case. I did add 3g at 12 to help bring the SW up. I recent had a chance...

    I’m playing pretty well with my stock BP with OG currently. But definitely interested in picking up a UP to compare. Because everyone needs more racquets!

    Late to the party, but how does these compare to the Blade Pros? Currently maining the BP 16x19 at 338SW.

    I have packs of Tour Hex left as well. I think I'll try Tour Hex in one, and Tour Sniper in the other.

    Love me some tour sniper. I have a reel so I'll probably try this.

    Yonex ezone 98 2022

    For those who add lead, where are you adding them to? I was thinking maybe 3g @ 12 to get the SW around 320+. I'm coming from a Blade Pro with 338 SW so it will be a big change.

    Introducing Grapplesnake USA!!!

    I'm excited for this new string.. It's round and generates as much spin as some shaped poly?!

    Just curious what everyones favorite string setup and tension for the EZ98 is. Thinking about picking them back up.

    Hi guys, I'm back.. I've been pretty good staying away from this forum. I've been happily playing great tennis with the Blade Pro for the last 6 months. I purchased a second hand Regna 100 from @skeeter just for shiz and giggles. So far I've played two T2 double matches and won both pretty...

    Yonex REGNA 98 &100?

    Play another T2 doubles match tonight with the Regna 100 and feeling really confident with it. My partner and I won 6-4, 6-2. The Regna 100 definitely punches above it's weight class. I was able to confidently tee off on both the opponents weaker second serve and get aggressive on my forehands...

    Yonex REGNA 98 &100?

    Thanks, I will definitely give lower tension a shot. Element Rough is known to lose tension quicker so I strung it higher. I usually do 48-50 lbs on 98/100 size racquets. I'll give 46 lbs a try next.

    Yonex REGNA 98 &100?

    Picked up a Regna 100 from @skeeter and strung it up with Luxilon Element Rough @ 52 lbs. Took it straight into a doubles match and gelled with it right away. Definitely the most solid 100 racquet I ever hit with. Ground strokes were heavy and volley were crisp. Plays well in stock form. I liked...

    I decided to try out the new Furi C4 String 1.28 in the BP after watching Mark Sansait's review. Nice pocketing and great access to spin for a round poly. Really enjoying this in the BP. I strung it @ 50 lbs.

    Best Alu power copycat

    Grapplesnake Tour Sniper, IMO. ALU still feels better, but TS has more access to spin.

    Agreed here. Against big hitters, the BP doesn't get pushed around. Chipping and attacking serves is made easy with the BP.

    Diary of a Racketaholic

    Great review! I had a lot of the same impressions. I couldn’t believe how much spin I am able to generate. You said it first, but I was thinking it as well, that has more access to spin than the BP. On ground strokes the balls were jumping off the court. My slices on the deuce side just slides...

    Just came home from open practice with some neighborhood guys. Hit with the Elevate V3 with Grapplesnake Tour Sniper and it's just so much fun to mix up the variety of shots I'm able to do with this racquet. When I need spin, it's just easy to tap into. When I need to flatten it out for a...

    For sure, I'm really digging the blue. No, it's the regular 305 version. I wanted to compare the 305 version since the Elevate V2 I played with previously was also the 305 version. I may order a Tour version just to try out.

    Diary of a Racketaholic

    Finally got around to hitting with the new Elevate V3. I probably have around ~5 hours of mixed play (singles/doubles). My first impressions are that it feels more solid in the hand and feels like it swings heavier through the air than than the V2, but that not a bad thing. After warming up and...
