    Best playing Babolat of all time / but it’s not a Babolat.

    the kfactor series was one of their best I played with the kblade.tour,, but several other kfactor models come up often when people look back in time by the descriptions, I provably would have liked this one also..

    Yonex Vcore Pro 97 330 "Navy Blue"

    all the yonex sticks ive played with, needed a bit of help from LEAD tape at the edges ime the vcore pros need help at 3/9 the regular vcores and the ezones need help in the corners but to get back to topic @TennisManiac I tried it, but I hated the fact that yonex switched to the 16/19 pattern...

    Post Your Most Recent Stringing Time

    just strung a racquet today, no where near yours (pattern wise), it was a Wilson.sledge-hammer. "4.3" i think; it had a 18/21 pattern, 135" head, ,, it was both crazy and fun,,, i ended up doing a box pattern on it and also charging the client $5 extra for the extra string we used on it, haaaaa

    Pro's Pro Strings!?

    @Jouke the thinner gauges stretch a lot, ime - 18g and thinner a bit too much,, I like best in 17g ive used the 16g version and its pretty good, soft you can deduce from that, not as much stretch, the 16g wont have the same spin as a 17g cool red color when you need that :-)

    30+ yrs of wood or why my game is sort of lame:)

    Clash 98: underrated racquet of 2019.

    imo its that little extra security and/or predictability of shots you get from a 98" head vs the open pattern 100" question what tension did you all go with?? did you up the tension or stayed in the mid 40s like the manufacturer suggested?? I think the highest I went is 56lbs fb poly w.revolve

    Wilson Clash 98 vs Wilson Blade 16 x 19 v7

    I got to the try : clash 98, 100, tour v7 blade 16/19 and 18/20 I like both models in days I don't wanna swing out, I would preffer the free power from the clash the clash 98 would be my choice, just for that bit extra of security and predictability from the 98, vs the 100/tour open pattern the...

    Strings for different level players

    multiple factors come into play, when suggesting strings; I start with the basics: poly/kevlar for DURABILITY multis/nat.gut for COMFORT syn.gut for POWER I look at the player (age, gender, level) I look at the racquet they play with (open/closed string pattern) i then start to ask: -health...

    Help with Nat Gut stringing for 18x20

    im with @Irvin and others who say "do not cut"!!, your gonna end up short on the next racket if you do; "been there, done that"!! babolat vs gut does no give you the full 40', they give you 12 meters which is 39.3700787 feet post #2 from @esgee48 gives you directions but just so we are all...

    Babolat Pure drive FSI stringing pattern

    one other tricky aspect of the FSI racquets is the way the cross strings need to be installed,, the cross strings can only be started 1 way!! the starting knot indicator should be used there are grommets "humps", that the crosses need to lay ontop off,, otherwise they are flat in the "valleys"...

    String breaker with a sensitive elbow, is an 18X20 racquet my best bet?

    agreed, Balance: 13in / 33.02cm / 4 pts HL for the v7 w.blade 18/20 I believe I added about 2'6" of 1/2 lead in the handle to take it to the 8pts HL I like the overall weight was well into the 12oz, but its handle heavy so its not cumbersome for the 1HBH but once I got it there, the swing...

    Pro's Pro: Aqua Zorb overgrips?

    String breaker with a sensitive elbow, is an 18X20 racquet my best bet?

    for the elbow issue, I would make or buy a racket with at least 8-10pts headlight!! I modified the 18/20 to 8-9pts head light head.gravity has mp(16/20), and pro (18/20) I would also look into the head.radicals, both mp/pro,, both of these have tight patterns, that wont be...

    Pro's Pro Strings!?

    @tomato123 pros pro black.force has my vote, the 18lg 1.19mm allows for good snapback; will let the mains do their thangg,, but really any round poly string, thinner than the mains, will give you good snapback

    Wanted to share funny racquet comment

    I really did not notice, but it would not surprice me I would have hung around and explained how most pros don't play with the racquets we see on TV,, but when people make statements that far off from what I know to be true, then I don't bother anymore, life is too short,, and I have too many...
