    new Yonex VCORE Pro 100 (300) -- arm-friendly 100 sq in option?

    Has anyone hit with the new Yonex VCORE Pro 100 (300)? Specs look very similar to the previous model, but the vibration rating has come down to 144 (from 150), which is pretty low for a 100 sq in racquet. Seems like a potential arm-friendly 100 sq in option, which are few and far between. TW...

    How to watch tennis tournaments (like the Masters) on Amazon Prime?

    Is the tennis on Amazon Prime only a UK thing? I'm in the States. When I search Amazon prime for tennis or ATP, it only shows the Laver Cup, the Next Gen tourney, and then tennis shows like a biopic on Tiafoe. No tournaments? I thought Amazon Prime has more tennis like the Masters tourneys, no?

    can you lay on your back, raise your arms above your head, and touch your elbows to the floor?

    In the pic I am trying to get my elbow as close to the floor as possible--it's not close. If someone pushes my elbow to the ground, it pinches on kinda the top of my shoulder, in the back right after the bone. It's like this for both of my shoulders, but left is a little better. Has anyone had...

    Yonex VCORE Pro 100 - how does it stack up vs other 100 sq in options?

    How does Yonex VCORE Pro 100 (300) compare to some other 100 sq in options out there, like DR 100, Pure Strike 100, Speed Pro, Instinct, Pure Aero, Burn, etc? Importantly, where would the VCORE Pro 100 stand on the comfort scale relative to those other options? Also curious on how "solid"...

    do these stiffer 98" players racquets cause arm pain for you?

    If my shoulder hurts from playing with racquets like the Bab APD and Head Extreme, should I also stay away from the Wilson Blade 98 (66 stiff, 87 rated comfort, 144 vibration), and Bab Pure Strike (67 stiff, 88 rated comfort, 148 vibration)? Has anyone made the switch and noticed the Blade/Pure...

    soles for sliding?

    I find the soles on Asics and New Balance to be rather sticky. Whereas Nikes are fairly slick. How do some other brands like Adidas, Yonex, and Wilson compare? thanks in advance

    Shoulder blade pain

    Man, what the heck is going on here. I’ve developed this weird pain primarily in my left shoulder blade area. However sometimes it can extend to my front left ribcage, and even the right shoulder blade area can be tender. Things like fully extending my left arm, moving a steering wheel, lifting...

    Possible to put a TK82 pallet on a Head Speed?

    Hi @TWE Staff, I was wondering if it was possible to switch a Head Speed to the traditional rectangular handle shape by putting on a TK82 pallet. It seems like this should be pretty straightforward, but then I noticed at the bottom of the link it says: Note: This pallet is not suitable for the...

    new stock Head MicroGel Radical stiffness?

    Hi, I was curious if TW has actually tested the stiffness of the new stock Head MG Radicals? The site lists them at 57. This is the same as what's listed in the TW review from 2004 (?), yet several posters have said the new stock feels stiffer than the original issue. Is 57 the right number...

    Does string pattern make a big difference in comfort?

    After struggling with shoulder tenderness/pain from serving with the light stiff (69 flex) racquets, a few years ago I switched to a Yonex E-Zone 98 (flex 63). It’s been great—what a joy to play tennis with no pain (even with full poly)! A couple of weeks ago I picked up an old Head Instinct...

    Head Graphene Touch Extreme

    Any one have any specs/pics? Looks like the last version came out in Jul-2015 so it seems like the new one should hit soon. General trend with the Touch versions have been softer--think that might happen here? thanks!

    what do you like more between New Balance 1296v2 and 996v3?

    They both look pretty sweet. Both have durability guarantees. A little surprised the 996 is slightly heavier--isn't this line supposed to be NB's lighter quicker shoe? How is the knit on the 996? A lot of mesh on the 1296--seems very breathable.

    head instinct handle shape--rounder or rectangular?

    Sorry, I know this has been addressed before but it doesn't seem like there was a consensus--are head instinct handle shapes rounder like extreme/speed or rectangular like prestige/radical? Some people have said they are rounder, but just eyeballing it it looks like it might be rectangular. Hard...

    thinking of weighting up an Extreme Lite to get more comfortable tweener racquet

    I’ve learned (the hard way) that I simply can’t play with racquets with a >66 stiffness (unless a full multi string which is a non-starter). The stock Head Graphene XT Extreme Lite comes with a 100 head, 10oz, 311 SW and only 62 flex. With foam/silicone injected in the handle and lead tape up...

    How many matches in your Adult 18 & Over league?

    Last year we only had 6 matches in our 4.5 Adult 18 & Over league in Colorado. The league ran from the last week in April to the first week in June. In previous years, it was more like 8-9, although one year it was 10. This did involve a Fri match or two, which I guess no one liked. 6 matches...

    feels like a muscle pull but i don't think it is--what else could it be?

    For the past couple years I would get what felt like groin pulls. They would normally occur in the winter when I was less active. They seemed to last longer than they should, i.e. 1-2 months. The weird thing was that I would never remember doing it—I would just wake up one day and it would be...
