    Wilson K Factor KSix-One Team: is it as good as it feels?

    Went back today, it was gone. As soon as I came back home, I saw a neighbor I played with last night walking to the courts with a racquet just like it in hand. It’s gotta be the same one, right? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Wilson K Factor KSix-One Team: is it as good as it feels?

    Came across one of these at the used sports equipment store. Passed it up because of the lightness, but a 59 RA? Might be worth adding some weight to and try it out. Thoughts? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    What Sunscreen Do You Recommend?

    This is an old thread, maybe there are more, but this is the first one to pop up on my web search. It’s now 2019, are there any changes in people’s recommendations for sunscreen? New brands or any new information that changed you minds? Just saw this on my search as well, (thinksport is...

    Prince Textreme Tour 100 (310) Thread

    I know I’m not going to change YOUR mind, but I feel like I need to refute this so you don’t lead anyone else astray. The Twaron (beige) is part of the Textreme weave and you can see the subtle flow of the fibers. Fake painted carbon fiber effect is always perfect. And on the surface. This is...

    Prince Textreme Tour 100 (310) Thread

    I haven’t played with the new 18 x 20 TT 100P, but people seem to prefer the 16 x 18. The 19 x 20 is spaced wide, and the other is a pretty tight 16 x 18, so the difference might be slight. If you have the resources, I wouldn’t sell the old racquet before testing, trying or buying the new one...

    Prince Textreme Tour 100 (310) Thread

    Crisper, but not boardier. The Twaron (aka aramid) is only in the throat AFAIK, but whereas some racquets give you a pleasant hum when you hit the sweet spot, and a harsh buzz when you hit outside, I feel like the Twaron Tour feels like it spreads the vibrations out all around the frame, without...

    Prince Graphite Pro 90 - Any Views??

    I’ve found a couple over the last year. Almost the exact shape of the “new” Phantom Pro 93P. Curious how similar it is to the new 14 x 18 version. First one I found was ~350g strung, but the second quite a bit heavier. Anyone know how light they were at the lightest end of the range? Sent...

    Prince Textreme Tour 100 (310) Thread

    I like it! I’ve been using and loving the Phantoms, mostly the 93p 18x20, after setting aside my TT Tour 100P and 95 2015. Not saying I’m leaving the Phantoms, but I’m flirting with this stick in hitting sessions, and may try it out in match play. Maybe it will become my singles stick against...

    Prince Textreme Tour 100 (310) Thread

    Oh, that’s Gorilla tape, which is just beefier duct tape really. I had been using gaffer’s tape, which is the same weight as the “head” brand tape I had been using, but cheaper and less gummy. gorilla tape is heavier (3.5g vs 2g) but seems to be holding up better to scrapes. I chop hard at a lot...

    Prince Textreme Tour 100 (310) Thread

    This was one racquet I bought as a “used” demo, sized 3/8” and pre-stung with Prince Premier Control 16 in the low/mid 50’s (a multi). If it wasn’t such a good deal I never would have gone for it, but I got it on the court and really really liked it! (Relatively) stiff, light, and a full bed of...

    Prince Textreme Tour 100 (310) Thread

    Usually a leather grip adds about .5 oz to my racquet. I’ve bought a few demos in 4 3/8” size and had to size up the grips to 5/8”, so that’s even more weight. I liked the plow, but I’m trying to hit more spin/less flat now, so I’m toying with lighter weights. I like the feel of leather too...

    Prince Textreme Tour 100 (310) Thread

    Coincidence! I just put a TW thin grip on my Phantom Pro 100. Color is a little light for my taste, but feels great! It actually only added a few grams, so I’m thinking of putting one on my TT 100 (310). I held off so far because I didn’t want it to get too heavy. Most of my racquets end up at...

    Sounds interesting if specs are true. I’ve been pretty happy with my Phantoms, but I’d give this a try! Glad more racquets are going “soft”. Thanks Babolat! I actually like the text inside the hoop. I just wish it said anything else. something like “a good carpenter doesn’t blame his tools.”...

    A 3.5 casual hitting for your pleasure

    I was about to ask, “Is that Dolores Park in SF?” then I read the video titles. Duh. Been meaning to play there with my brother when I’m in town. I’ll check out the videos when I get to a larger screen than my phone. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Most Beautiful Wooden Racquet

    I’m still pretty new to the woody appreciation society, so please pardon my ignorance/naivety. Just got my first Mayply ever (!!!) this past weekend at the thrift store. Mine is pretty beat up, does not look nearly as nice as this gem! The color contrast between the wood layers is not nearly as...

    Most Beautiful Wooden Racquet

    The most wood-like modern racquet I’ve played with is the Prince Phantom Pro 100, but its thin beam would be hard to fit a “woodie” paint job onto. Maybe the Wilson Clash? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    NB Freshfoam Lav ? Anyone have them? Thoughts?

    Enjoying my Lavs so far. Lots more cushioning than my Ubersonic 3s, but similar bootie construction. My foot is wide, but the EE width leaves my foot sliding around unless I crank down the laces. Next pair I’ll make sure to get “D” width. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Wanted: Wilson ncode 95 or Wilson Pro Staff 97 2017 (black/red)

    I have a 1/2 Ncode 95 almost unused. A little wear on the grip. One minor scuff on the bumper. 16 x 20. I also have an NCode2 4 3/8. Worn paint but not otherwise beat up. Def not as pristine as the other. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Bought a Wilson Advantage woodie. Can anybody provide a little history info?

    Prince Phantom 93P- Best string set up

    Trying Cyclone 18g black (1.20?) - actually maybe 19g - in one and ALU power rough 17 (1.25) in the other. I’ll get the specs off my racquet as far as tension. I think it’s 40/38 for the Cyclone and 36/33 for the ALU, which is the one I generally prefer. It’s got great touch for volleys, but I...
