    Is there a new Wilson Ultra Tour on the way?

    That's exactly how I feel. Loved the Ultra Tour, but I could never add the weight correctly.

    Is there a new Wilson Ultra Tour on the way?

    Hopefully, something around 320-330 grams unstrung.

    Babolat PURE DRIVE VS 2019

    I think it’s a great weapon for those advanced players with fast swing speed. My strokes weren’t good enough to get the maximum out of the frame (*stock) but saw the potential when I was forced to hit certain shots. With a little lead, it becomes easier to use (*for me). There is nothing...

    My New tennis racket (RF97A black)

    Instead of just swinging faster, you might want to step into the ball when you make the strike. With Eastern Forehand, I find that hitting cleanly is more important than hitting low to high real fast. Step into the ball, make clean strikes with good follow through, and you should see some...

    Tennis Warehouse Playtest: Babolat Pure Strike (16x19, 18x20, Tour) 3rd Gen Playtest

    Really interested in this frame. Please tell us all about it. Congrats!

    Help a lifelong 18x20 control racket player transition to a power oriented racket

    I think the Angell K7 Red would be a great frame. It plays like a player’s racket but comes in lighter with an open 16x19 pattern.

    The Prince Phantom 93P is a gift to us from TW - My Review/AMA

    For sure. I’m nearing fifty, and I’ve been battling cramping issues when I play against advanced players. I love the heavier frames, especially the maneuverable frames like the 93P, but my best tennis against real good players (*younger) lasts about two sets of singles. I still don’t think...

    The Prince Phantom 93P is a gift to us from TW - My Review/AMA

    Agree 100%. I had frames where I didn’t like the impact feel or balance, but I don’t think I’ve ever bashed on a frame because I couldn’t play well with it. The Pure Drive VS comes to mind as one of those frames where I’ve seen many advanced players play excellent all-court tennis, but I...

    The Prince Phantom 93P is a gift to us from TW - My Review/AMA

    Funny how much hate the 93P gets because no pros use it. I wrong, but if it was called Babolat, Head or Wilson Phantom 93P, it definitely would be viewed differently. I.think the 93P is easier to use than most player's frame. I don't understand why the racket gets a bad rep because...

    The Prince Phantom 93P is a gift to us from TW - My Review/AMA

    The 93” sounds intimidating until some comparisons were made with other frames which varied from 95 to 100. It was apparently clear that both Spectrum Comp and 93P are Midsize frames most people fear of using. Comparing them to any 95” frames, I couldn’t find any difference. Even comparing...

    Thinking of switching to 18 x 20

    Shouldn’t really worry about spin. To me, generating spin comes from the player with a little aid from the rackets. If you have sound mechanics, there shouldn’t really be any worry. One reason I really prefer the 18x20 (*though I have some nice 16x19 frames) is the predictability and...

    How much difference between 98 vs 100?

    I think the beam thickness usually increases with the increase in headsizes. That would most likely cause the differences in feel and playability more so than anything. The actual difference even between the Prince 93P and other 97, 98 and 100” frames were negligible at best, just more room...

    Pure Strike Tour 2020

    Thanks for the feedback. Surprised to see the comparison between the regular third gen Pure Strike 18x20 to the RF97 & Yonex 330.

    Pure Strike Tour 2020

    My main frames after using the Pro Staff Midsize for more than two decades were: Prince EXO3 Rebel 95 to IG Prestige MP Pure Strike Tour Phantom 93P I think I’ve built a preference towards the tighter pattern since the departure from the St. Vincent monster. I really hope Babolat would...

    Pure Strike Tour 2020

    I totally agree, The Tour version was the only nice frame in the line up of the first gen Pure Strikes. I did also feel that the second generation was better, as far as the regular 16x19 and the 18x20 were concerned. It was probably not fair, but I just compared the second generation Pure...

    Pure Strike Tour 2020

    The 93P is still my frame of choice. My dream frame would be combining 93P's control & maneuverability with PST's plow & power in 18x20 pattern. One can only dream.

    Pure Strike Tour 2020

    That's too bad. I didn't see the specs clearly and just thought it would be the same 18x20. Thanks for the info. I didn't find the P17 or the 18c20 Pure Strike second generation anything special, especially comparing them to the original PST.

    Pure Strike Tour 2020

    Me, too. It is the only frame that I think I could use exclusively. The first gen was my racket of choice for over two years..., and my holism kicked in severely. Hoping the new PST will end my sickness,

    Pure Strike Tour 2020

    Super excited for the new Pure Strike Tour. The original PST was my racket of choice for nearly two years. Unlike most, I didn’t really find the second generation better than the first generation (*especially compared to the PST). I can’t wait to try the new 3rd Gen PST. I’m hoping the 3rd...

    Zus racquets

    I’ve been looking because I’m so impressed with the one I just got, but it looks like the US based website has not been updated (*still being updated) for a couple of years. The only place where Zus frames can be ordered seems to be the Zus Italian website. Except for the high price (*which...

    That’s too bad. Other than the price (300 Euros), it looks and feels like a quality frame.

    Yonex vs Babolat

    I'm on the opposite. I don't think any manufacturer produces better 100" tweeners than Babolat. My Pure Drive VS came within a gram & my Pure Drive is on point. It depends on the playing ability and characteristics, but if hitting hard with loads of spin is the ultimate goal, it would be hard...

    Zus racquets

    Reviving an old thread. Does anyone play with the Zus tennis frames, specifically the 95” version? I will have a chance to hit with the 335 gram version. What would be a good string set up? Thanks in advance.

    The Prince Phantom 93P is a gift to us from TW - My Review/AMA

    You definitely should if you like those thin beamed player’s sticks. It really is a nice stick that’s really fun to hit with.

    The Prince Phantom 93P is a gift to us from TW - My Review/AMA

    I have both. The Vcore Tour 89, to me, is one of the best frames Yonex has ever produced. It swings easy, plays a lot bigger than its headsize and is deceptively powerful. I prefer the feel and balance of the Tour 89 over any Yonex frames. That said, the 93P comes around easier and faster...
