    Are Volkl Biotac grips making my handle seem thicker?

    My Volkl Organix 10 [4 3/8] currently has a Volkl Biotac grip + 1 Yonex Super Grap overgrip on it. Maybe it's just me but it feels bigger than a typical 4 3/8 size grip + 1 overgrip. In addition, the 1 overgrip seems to have diminished the feel of the bevels more than I would have expected. Two...

    New racquet, split grommet - return/exchange?

    Just bought a new racquet. It came pre-strung and I noticed a split grommet at near the head. I know it's likely to happen eventually, but since it's a new frame, is it worth making a fuss? Opinions welcomed. Thank you.

    Tennis in Texas during December

    Does it get too cold in Texas (Spring, specifically) during December for tennis? Do they keep the outdoor nets up? Thanks. I'll be heading there for the holidays and was looking forward to getting some court time in, since I won't be getting any in North Dakota anytime soon.

    Microgel Extreme MP (original) vs. future iterations

    How does the Microgel Extreme MP (original) measure up against its successors, based on your personal experiences? This question isn't directed towards any playtester in particular, but it would be nice to get multiple opinions. Thanks.

    Chicago State University Men's Tennis

    Currently attending CSU and have noticed they have a men's tennis team. Have not had a chance to see them play yet, but their record for the past few years has been rather pitiful. The point of this thread is not to insult them or the program. I have no experience or knowledge with college...

    Microgel Extreme MP (original) vs. future iterations

    How does the Microgel Extreme MP (original) measure up against its successors, based on your personal experiences? A certain competitor is replenishing their supply for a limited time, and I wanted to see if I can get a general consensus to gauge whether or not it's worth the investment. Thanks.

    "Lite" vs Normal

    I am not familiar with racquet production and was curious about this, so: Are the lighter versions of racquets composed of less material than their normal counterparts? How else are they able to reduce the weight? Maybe they start light and add weight accordingly, as opposed to starting...

    Syntec vs Syntec Pro

    My sister demoed two racquets, one with a Syntec grip and one with a Syntec Pro grip. She swears they felt different. Do they really or was it just her imagination? Thanks.

    Tension loss - am I stringing wrong?

    I've only been stringing for about a month. Last week I used my dropweight (Gamma Progression 200) and strung my frame (Angell TC100) with syngut (Volkl Classic) at 55 lbs. Immediately after I finished, I used racquetTune and measured tension at 53.1 lbs, which I figured was a pretty decent...

    Would these Volkl racquets play similar?

    I did a side-by-side comparison between the Organix 10 (295g) and the new Organix V1 Pro MP. The specs seem to vary but not by much. The V1 also looks like it has a flatter beam design than the 10, but it could just be the lighting; is there anyone that can verify? Would you expect these...

    Junior Frame for a 13 Year Old

    My 13 year old little sister has just recently begun to get serious about tennis; she's aspiring to join her school's tennis team. She can hold her own in a slow-paced rally, but it is clear that all aspects of her game need a lot more work. I suspect one of her problems might be her frame. At...

    Poly question

    When people say they usually get about "x" hours on their poly before it dies, does that include time spent at the courts alone practicing serves, groundstrokes, etc.?

    Question for Racquet Gurus - Value of Vintage Racquets

    I found three old racquets in my garage that my uncles use to play with: ProKennex Ceramic Elite 90 Mid Size Wilson American Ace Mid Size Wilson Defender Are these racquets of any value (if so, which has the most), or are they the past's equivalent of Wal-Mart racquets? I plan on fixing...

    Problems switching from light racquet to heavier racquet

    I recently bought an Angell TC100, but lately I've been having a lot of trouble adjusting to it. My forehands usually either fly into the fence or dive into the net. Even my slices seem to have too much power to them. Just to keep the ball in bounds I feel I have to hold back in my swing. I also...

    Shoe Question

    I noticed that the pictures of the New Balance MC656 show the white model having a different toebox than the other two colors. I was hoping you could confirm this for me. If so, other than breathability, would you recommend either variation over the other? I appreciate your help. Thanks.

    When to restring backup racquet(s)

    I live in North Dakota, so accounting for weather I get maybe six months of outdoor play time if I'm lucky. I average about four 1.5-hour sessions per week. I have never broken my strings but usually restring as soon as the courts begin to open up after the snow melts. Being an amateur...
