    New Balance Fresh Foam X CT-Rally

    Maybe it’s just in the same color as the grey which is better than when it stands out. I find the shoes a bit too long, and not as comfortable as the previous iteration.

    New Balance Fresh Foam X CT-Rally

    My big issue is they make a squeaking sound. Ok on the tennis court but I can’t wear them inside my house or in while shopping.

    Wilson Blade V9 2024

    I’ll have to wait for the pro labs as I think that flex is also around 60 as well.

    Wilson Blade V9 2024

    I’d be happy with a 60 RA but it must be a mistake. Too bad it’s not gloss either.

    New Balance Fresh Foam X CT-Rally

    I’m struggling to find a one stop tennis brand. Lacoste clothing is decent quality (medvedev stuff is ugly). Might have to try ASICS shoes or The Mizuno ones which gets good reviews.

    New Balance Fresh Foam X CT-Rally

    I agree. Better than the white ones but still pretty terrible looking! They are overly engineered and have two different logos on them. N on the outside and small NB on the inside. I got New Balance years ago because Nike were so bad. Seems New Balance is heading in a similar direction.

    New Balance Fresh Foam X CT-Rally

    The new color way is an improvement. These are definitely long, and feel a bit flipper like. Not as comfortable as the Lav 2 which were a very good shoe. I’m still breaking mine in.

    Alcaraz New Custom Shoes

    Nike's narrow toe box and lack of cushioning have injured many tennis players.

    New Balance Fresh Foam X CT-Rally

    The black ones on the New Balance site are already discounted after a week. Not a good sign!

    Totally agree. Way too unnecessarily busy.

    New Balance Fresh Foam X CT-Rally

    I might get them because I think they will be a performance improvement on the Lav 2, but they aren't good looking. A chance they might look better in real life though.

    New Balance Fresh Foam X CT-Rally

    Its the swirly part on the side that makes them look like cheap basketball shoes from the 1990's.

    New Balance Fresh Foam X CT-Rally

    Agreed. Too clunky and a bit of randomness to the design.

    Yeah, definitely no need for another thread. The poster acknowledges the other thread because he must know the photos were already pulled from that post.

    WTA Tour player with bunionette causing me to stop playing. Looking for a pair of shoes that will fit.

    I'm a coach that is still on court 7 days a week and I still lift and run almost daily. I have hallux rigidus, which totally sucks. I think you would benefit from a stiff sole as well if their is calcification happening to limit big toe bend. The new balance Lav's seem to be the best performance...

    Programs operating without a head coach?

    Don’t forget about Doug Root! I roomed with him playing futures.

    Carlos Alcaraz is using a stock Pure aero vs

    Both grips that are too big and too small cause elbow injuries according to the American Journal of Sports Medicine. The smallest that is correct would be better due to the increase range of motion of the wrist. Hold a golf ball in you palm and rotate your wrist versus a tennis ball doing the...

    Golfer's elbow route/guide - racquets review

    So ice will numb your elbow but will infect slow down the healing process immensely. Icing injuries has been bedunked now for many years.

    Wilson Pro Labs: Blade Pro Official Thread

    I wonder when they will be in stock again. I was too slow to pull the trigger. I’m thinking VCore pro now or wait for the Babolat pure strike vs, or save up for some h19’s.

    Wilson Pro Labs: Blade Pro Official Thread

    They could get some Wilson intern to match the rackets. I agree that the quality control is so poor, especially when getting a “prostock racket” which it is not.
