    Wilson Trinity Balls

    Played a doubles match this morning with a fresh set of these. Dead-feeling and heavy, funny bounce made my timing suffer. Put them in the bin after and will not be buying again.

    Hyper G with slick cross?

    Not Hyper G but I used Kirschbaum PLII as a cross for Tour Bite and thought it really balanced the TB out and helped with playability duration.

    TW's Exclusive Kirschbaum Pro Line Evolution Co-poly

    Very similar comfort I'd say. Differences would be spin potential (hyper g) and tension maintenance (Evo)

    Return Strategies - Your Best and Worst

    First serve return always cross court and deep when possible. Second serve I'll try to be a little craftier. On deuce side, either a ripper cross court to pull the server off the court or a chip down the line and follow in for a volley. On ad side, looking to take the ball early and down the...

    New Dunlop racquets on the way - SX Spin Series

    Looks like there is a Tour 310g version. I loved the Bio 400 Tour from years ago, this could be a long-awaited update

    Which Wilson Blade do you prefer?

    I had both 2013 and 2015 versions. I know the 2015 version is the most well liked but for me I'm going for the 2013. It was my first players frame and I used it a lot for lessons drills etc along with matches and have never played better with any frame

    Strings for 16x19 vs 18x20

    I like 18g strings in 18x20's. Pro Line II for example, plays really well in 18g in 18x20's If you're looking for more help with spin/a higher launch angle, Tour Bite 18g or even 19g is worth a try

    When was the last time you changed racquets and why?

    I was quite happy with my Speed Touch MP's for around 6/7 months and then a few things started bothering me with them. The string pattern is quite open not the most controlled response and made the frame string sensitive. I'm not a huge string breaker but with the Speeds I was breaking strings...

    Looking for some doubles tips!

    Agreed. I find hitting to the weaker player constantly gives them so many balls they get into a groove!

    Does your game suffer under the floodlights?

    We have good LED lights at our club. The only shot that's troublesome is the overhead as the sudden flash of light when looking up can be blinding almost

    Looking for some doubles tips!

    They are both, they get on great off-court but when the Dad misses a few the kid can really get on his back. From your comments I'm thinking stay out of rallies with the kid and move him around as much as possible.

    So, myself and my partner have made it to the semis of our club champs where we play the top seeds. The guys we are playing are a father and son combo and we were wondering how to approach the game and if anyone here had some good advice we would be most grateful. We are both around the 4.0...

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

    Update. After the shoulder injury cleared up I went back to the Beast 100 strung with Luxilon Alu Power. No issues with comfort at all now. Really liking the frame again. Similar specs and playability to PD but softer
