    My Blades are dying...possible replacements?

    Went from a Blade v4 18X20 to a BP 16X19 v9. It depends on what you want out of the racket. I wanted a 16X19 to get easier access to spin and a little more forgiveness from my old blade. Demoed the v9 16X19, thought it was overall quite good but lacked a little feeling at contact (more dampened...

    Wilson Blade V9 2024

    Can anyone speak to the differences between the v9 16x19 vs the blade pro? I know the swing weights are different and i would add weight to the stock v9 none the less and also making it headlight. Debating between the two rackets and wanted to get a sense of the overall differences in feel/...

    Speed Solution FF3

    I wore the Asics FF 2 since they came out and have tried on the 3's. From my experience some rough takeaways... Shoe needed to break in for me. Step in comfort was a lot better on the FF2. Feet felt sore after transitioning to the FF3. FF2 felt more plush on the forefoot and overall tighter /...

    Federer with ON Tennis shoes Dubai

    It’s an interesting look for a tennis shoe. Always felt the vapor line was to thin. It’s a great shoe for how light and breatheable it was but it def had its trade off. Maybe after all his knee surgery he wanted something with more cushioning? i personally switched over from years of playing...

    Federer Uniqlo Wimbledon: it’s here

    Checked out the shirt today. Not sure if the pink one is Asia exclusive. But the shirt is actually really nice! The material is thicker than the other Dry-ex UNIQLO stuff which is good. I tried on a L which is on the tighter side (for reference I am 6ft 185 lb). Would probably buy the shirt if...

    String Recommendation for BLX Blade 98 (18X20)

    I currently have two sets up tensions. I 56/53 on two of my rackets at then 54/51 for the other two. I also played with the Babolat RPM for a while and loved that. Thanks for the suggestions I'll try those out.

    String Recommendation for BLX Blade 98 (18X20)

    Hi, I am currently playing with a Blade 98 (18 X 20) with Luxilon Adrenaline 16. I love the control it gives me but I feel like I am lacking in power. I was wondering if there was any string that could give me the same control but more power or some sort of hybrid or new setup? I am open to...

    Wilson BLX Pro Tour Alternative

    Hey thanks so much for the feedback. I demoed a bunch of rackets and I really liked the Blade 98 18X20. I think I'm going to get a couple of them with my college pack. And yea it is a bit less maneuverable... I can't whip the racket as much as I want. I think I might get someone to add some...

    Wilson BLX Pro Tour Alternative

    Hi, I have been playing with the BLX pro tour since it came out and am still playing with it. Some of my rackets have worn out already and I only have a couple sticks left. Is there any alternatives that play like this? or is there a website I could buy older Wilson models? I was hoping...
