    Any shoes similar to Vapor 9/9.5s?

    Need to get some new pairs soon. Looked around. There’s a couple on the bay but I’d rather not for peace of minds sake. Any similar models around right now? I’m not heavy on my shoes. I guess the Vapor X is the obvious choice, but I like the split sole of the 9s, hence why I’m hesitant. Is there...

    Does this mean I need a deader poly?

    Strung my RF97 with ALU power cross @52 and X1 mains @54. So I had string issues where the stringbed felt like a cannon initially. Then the next hitting session, and multiple onwards, felt really dead and unpredictable. Couldn’t get a full confident swing in. Now ~12 hours of playtime in, its...

    I’m still having string issues. So. Last time I got my RF97 strung was 3 years ago, with X1 in mains at 50 and ALU crosses at 50. After getting it strung, I stopped playing tennis. So that strung bed hadn’t been played with for 3 years, until I started playing the sport again a couple of months...

    What would be the difference between these setups?

    I’ve been using a x one biphase mains and ALU Power crosses hybrid. It lasts for about 20 hours of playtime before the multifilament breaks. And loses tension quite a lot. I’m thinking about other strings to maybe try and unsure about how each would play and differ from my current setup. I’m...

    Dealing with blisters?

    So I recently started playing tennis again after a 3 year hiatus and ended up getting hotspots on my hands, which was expected due to not playing for so long and my hands no longer being used to it. I have gotten blisters once before when I tried a new racket, applied a plaster, but it didn’t...

    Nadal has now won a title for 16 consecutive seasons

    Overtakes Feds record of 15, which ended in 2016. Not bad for a player who some thought would retire early through injuries.

    Vapor 9.5 vs X

    What’s the main differences between the two? Debating between picking one these two up. Currently use the 9.5s. I’m not hard on my shoes so durability isn’t an issue. It takes me about a year to get through the 9.5s
