    Eye injury

    Very few pros wear eye protection. I tried clear, high light transmission, tennis/golf lenses, and normal dark sunglasses. They all interfere with vision. But i'd rather play slightly worse, than spend 2 hours in the sun without sunglasses.

    Cost of Stringing Survey

    Cary Tennis Park pro shop no membership $14 labor. With membership $12.60 labor I think. I bring my own strings so not sure what they charge for strings. They mainly use Wilson and Luxilon. Labor is the same for natural gut. :p The local pros / techs train teenagers to do the job. Not sure if a...

    Moved from the 2018 VCP 310 to the 2019 green VCP 310. Only a 2 hour ground stroke bash fest; however, I like the additional comfort. Everything else felt like the usual. Strange thing to say, but shanks don't "hurt" as much. Less buzz through the arm. I tried Klip Natural Gut 15L mains @ 54 |...

    Unfortunately i'm a 5'8" skinny guy. 20g more weight is too much unless I switch to a flat slower paced game. I want a stick that allows 3 straight sets of top spin game at 90%+ effort. Even my under spec TT100 310 is annoying me since I can't get the same RHS and timing vs. my stock VCP 310.

    Ugh, accidentally bought a 2019 330g instead of 310g. Was looking forward to pitting the 2019 to the 2018... Tempted to string it up for test run, but I know 330g is too much. Will sell it if I cannot return it.

    Yonex vcore or vcore pro or ezone 100?

    VCP will have quite a bit less power and less stability, but the most control out of the three. All three are good for spin, but Vcore has the most potential. However the VCP's thin beam can cut through the air faster. Vcore is the best choice of those three. Try to demo all three and if you can...

    Prince Textreme Tour 100 (310) Thread

    Recommended tension range is 48-58 pounds. Velocity is a multi so 55 is a good starting point. The 100P is a little lower.

    Does your game suffer under the floodlights?

    At night I have trouble tracking the balls and will usually hit 2 or 3 air shots. Lighting is terrible on public courts... Interesting to hear about astigmatism and low light issues. Used to wear toric lenses due to astigmatism. Just barely qualified for lasik, but chose PRK. Doesn't help my...

    The 1st gen VCP310 review had no complaints about stability. But this emerald version has numerous knocks on stability. A bit odd.

    Well crap. I've only been focused on the 97 310, but... Now I need to add the 97HD to my list of future racquets to try.

    It's now on the Yonex Website! VCORE Pro EMERALD

    Why would the 97HD swing faster than the 97 310? It has the same balance, but higher weight and swingweight. Power is slightly higher and larger sweet spot.

    2019 Wilson Blade

    Might be annoying, but It's effective advertising. Look at the Wilson Clash, it's probably one of the top 2019 sellers. Most players don't know what racquet to try, strings to use, etc. Marketing through social media, ambassadors, demo/tryout events, etc. will convert those people.

    2019 Wilson Blade

    Is that with plastic on handle? Any other packaging? Get a refund on the 313. The 18x20 is unstrung 305g. Wilson's site says, "Reduced spec variance (+/- 5.5 g) for added consistency from frame to frame" Plastic adds 2 maybe 3 grams. If 3 it's out of spec variance.

    Looks like a typo on unstrung. I bet they meant 322. Seems like just the plastic | 2 grams. Probably a typo and meant 322g.

    2019 Wilson Blade

    Lots of words in the description, but don't know what they mean. :unsure: No pictures or videos of the Easy Wrap Tech. This grip comes with Wilson’s Easy Wrap Technology, which involves a longer starting taper, a shaded upper edge, embossed cutting lines at the top, and an innovative under-grip...

    The new Yonex Vcore Pro are on TW's site and ready for pre-order. https://www.tennis-warehouse.com/Yonex_VCORE_Pro_/catpage-YVCOREDUEL.html They have a MSRP for $295, but slashed to $239. Never seen that before on a not yet released item. Not loving the price hike. :mad:

    Flexier alternative 2 Pure Drive w/ same specs?? Please advise!

    Prince Textreme Tour 310. Yonex Vcore Pro 100. I hate to say it, but Clash is an option. O3 ports are an option, but some can't get used to it.

    2019 Wilson Blade

    Thanks for the comparison. Sounds like the 16x19 will be better suited for me. If/when I try the new Blade. Plus many have mentioned the 16x19 is tight enough. I prefer more RHS. I'm getting used to the TT310 as I hit more, but ATM still prefer VCP310 on groundies.

    You still don't understand... it's so sad. Either your IQ is sooo low or you are trolling. I cannot tell. I'm not saying the umpire was unprofessional, the discussion is was the umpire unprofessional in the game. Then you go on a rant about the umpire doesn't play tennis and there is no need for...

    Kyrgios Penalties

    How do you not understand the question??? Can the umpire be professional or unprofessional? The answer is yes. If they make bad decisions that is unprofessional. If they come to work drunk that is unprofessional.

    The argument is can umpires be professional or unprofessional. Your response is they are not playing the game, which doesn't make any sense... Then you go on ranting about how umpires are not needed...

    Thanks for the suggestion. I don't see the Western and Southern Open under the events section. This morning the match did not show up. But when I checked now the Fed Rub match shows up. lol. Youtube TV likes to hide videos under another. It showed up under yesterday's recording when I clicked...

    On the homepage it shows videos of live channels and I saw Federer playing. I made sure it was recording. Just can't find that recording. Poof gone. Strange thing happened with the Kyrios vs. Khachanov. I took a shower after the 2nd set. Came back and couldn't find the recording. It showed up in...

    Youtube TV

    Does anybody else have Youtube TV? I'm having trouble locating the Federer vs. Rublev match... And I have the whole Cincinnati "event" recorded. Youtube TV has been a hot mess to use, but I piggy back on my friend's account so cannot complain.
