    Reconsidering racquet choices

    This National gold ball 60+ indoor tournament just happened in our area: https://tennislink.usta.com/tournaments/TournamentHome/Tournament.aspx?T=227325 I went and watched the semifinal rounds and it was truly eye opening the racquet choices that were used by these national level age group...

    Stringing up POG with poly

    With all the talk in the "How to string Wilson T2000?" thread, I dug mine out and also stumbled on my old POG OS. It's this: Weighs 380 grams, about 10 points headlight, and according to the sticker I strung it with a string called "Revelation" at 62 pounds. I have no recall of any string...

    V-Torque Tour

    My order of Tourna Big Hitter Silver 7 Tour is backordered a few days, and with probably 15 hours on the string already and still not having tested V-Torque Tour, I decided to restring tonight. I purchased a set of the 1.20 thickness V-Torque Tour some time ago. It has minimal coil memory and...

    Kirschbaum Pro Line Evolution

    My test of Dunlop Explosive Red finished with the string breaking, and I was thinking of trying another round string. I dug around in my stash and found this: This is not the current packaging, and I'm pretty sure I've had this string set for **several** years. So, a couple of questions. 1)...

    YTex Quadro Twist

    I've been searching for my go-to string as part of a racquet switch I made this past January, and today was my first try with Quadro Twist. This string received very high scores for spin capability during the TW tests, and so I bought a pack to try. Stringing was about average for a poly...

    Single layer versus double layer of lead tape

    Just a quick question. A high level player saw my racquet setup where I have a double layer of 1/4" lead tape at 3 and 9 o'clock, totaling five grams. He said it's better to use a single layer over a greater portion of the hoop. I'm an old guy and started doing this because of the PWS that...

    Stiff poly with higher launch angle than Tour Bite

    I've recently switched racquets to the SW104 and found that my old go-to strings haven't worked quite as I wanted. I've been trying various strings and gauges, and I significantly prefer the stiffer poly strings. I had a couple of sets of Tour Bite 1.30 and have even found an ideal tension...
