    yunfei = recommended

    I bought a racquet from yunfei, who had only one reference here at that time, but he communicated well and even shipped it out internationallly to me. The racquet is exactly in the state he described and as shown on the pictures he sent me. So don't hesitate to trust Yunfei, he is worth it.

    Volkl PB mid vs. Head IG prestige mid? Info?

    I have been searching for direct information about a comparison between these two, but found close to nothing. It seems that the PB 10 mid has often been compared with the Youtek mid, which was released at the same time, but not with the IG mid, which is more recent. Both got glowing reviews...

    Volkl PB mid sweetspot shape

    Quick question, have used search function, but find nothing that answers it. Is the sweetspot long or short, i.e. is there a lot of action in the upper hoop just like the v-engine mid?

    Federer, a year without slams...

    In the last 4 GS, Fed hasn't won anything, that is to say, hasn't been the champion of any Grand Slam tournament. To the tennis-historians on this board, how long is it ago that Fed goes for 4 consecutive slams without a win? Should we give any meaning to this?

    Rafa, the "nice guy"

    It just occurred to me how he had three chances this week to hand out a tasty double bagel to someone, but somehow ended up with a bagel and a breadstick. Any chance Nadal is being filantropic here? At club levels it is quite usual to tank at least a game when the score is too lopsided, not...

    2 K90's 4 3/8 grip very good condition

    Racquets are 9.5 out of ten. Have only been strung once and hit a couple of hours with. As is to be expected, nothing but a little rash on the bumper guards, and even that is very modest. Asking for 140 plus shipping or best offer. No low-ballers please. Pictures are available upon...

    Scored a Dunlop MW 200g, what to expect?

    Hi guys, Today I picked up a MW 200g for 20 bucks. Truth is, the paint on the racquet is quite blemished, but structurally the stick is sound. I bought this one as a sort of stick for one of those days I wanna take full swings at the ball without it going out and also for those moments...

    My take on the PC600 and the K90:

    Now the K90 is going to be discontinued, I feel a comparison with the PC600 might be appropriate. I actually did this write up a few months ago, but for some reason forgot to post it. Serves: PC 600: Great, great frame to serve. It might produce the best flat serves I have seen. Slices...

    Amazing 5-set record on clay

    I read in a newspaper that Nadal's win over Berdych was his fiftieth 5-setter on clay, of which he has won a total of forty nine. Quite an amazing performance!

Very very recommendable, one of the great guys on the...

    Thaychua (Tin) is a great guy and very reliable. I had a great transaction with him and he was excellent in communication and followed everything up to the point that when USPS almost made a mistake in the delivery he had tracked the package and I could reach them in time to set things straight...

    NG mains - poly cross: pingy sound, vibration?

    I put a hybrid of Natural Gut (one of the cheaper ones) and SPPP 1.18 in my K90. This is the first time I use NG, except for a used racquet I bought once that was strung with it, but that was a long time ago. I have the impression the NG is really a soft string, but for some reason, when I...

    Do Head Sonic Pro string reels exist in orange?

    So today I was at my tennis shop and saw they had Head Sonic Pro Strings in Orange, in a reel, I had never seen this. It sure looked authentic, but I was just wondering. This is supposed to be one of the softest polys ever, any comments on how it plays? I think they might have had the price...

    BA 1.22 and Titan 1.30 hybrid

    So, after asking about tension retention on the BA 1.22 in another thread, I am pretty much convinced that it should be a better alternative to my usual Polylon SP 17g. Polylon 17g is one of the softest polys out there and it plays very well but only for a short time. You have to string it high...

    Pro Supex Big Ace tension maintenance vs. Polylon SP/Enduro pro

    Hi, I want to try a new poly main. At the moment I am playing with a Gosen Polylon SP 17g and Forten Sweet 16g hybrid. The Polylon SP, though soft, loses its tension very quickly and it actually starts to move around. I was thinking of Big Ace 17g, but I see on the website of...

    38 year old in final men's doubles at RG!

    Agassi or Djokovic: who is the better claycourter?

    I thought this would be an interesting comparison. I feel technique-wise Djokovic is better but result-wise it's AA.
