    Denis Shapovalov to Yonex

    I don't think a larger frame would change much to be honest...the fact he played great tennis this week is testament to his hard work on and off the court. Racket head size, especially the minute change from 95 to 97 or 98, is not going to make him a slam winner....it's personal preference.

    Federer’s actual Frame specs!

    I heard before that Fed gets lighter frames from Wilson than 340g and adds silicone and lead to get his desired specs. If this is true, without the actual weight of the rackets he gets from Wilson, it is impossible to know how much silicone is in the handle, no? The only people with that kind of...

    That is not the case. I've been tuning my own rackets for years. I've always used lead and silicone no matter what racket I order. And imo, leather is the only way to go. If you haven't tried leather, you should. There is a reason 90% or so of the pros use leather!

    Yonex Custom Fit

    Ask yonex Japan why they are so anal about changing grips... Pros all wrap their own or have p1 contracts. No one is using a racket directly from the Yonex Pro room. I requested leather and they said they didn't do it. I'm just a nobody getting a discounted frame through the right channels... If...

    Denis Shapovalov to Yonex

    I usually use an Angell TC90 V3, so the sv95 was quite powerful, but I can understand that it's less powerful than other frames. I like generating my power, so it's nice for me

    Denis Shapovalov to Yonex

    The SV feels more solid and stiffer, which I like more. The vcore does seem to be more powerful. My opponent commented on how much heavier my strokes were when I used the vcore. I am going to fiddle around with the Swingweight a little and test it some more.

    Dimitrov new racquet?

    Is there any chance it is an H19 93 Blade under the paint job??

    Dimitrov new racquet?

    I thought he went back to his 93!!?? If he keeps chopping and changing, he will never reach top form!

    The yonex leather is good IMO too. There's no hg written on this frame, but there's no lead evident anywhere. It seems to be custom. The handle is foam/polystyrene type filled as usual with yonex frames

    I'm not sure about golf products but their rackets are mostly made here in Japan, some cheaper models in China

    I wrapped it...rushed it in fact. Will rewrap it. Yonex sent the racket originally with a pu grip

    Denis Shapovalov to Yonex

    In my experience, shanking comes from taking your eye off the ball at the last second...or misreading the spin or bound of the ball. I use a 90 and don't shank much unless I am out of practice or just not focussed on the ball enough. People stick to what they like. I did try the SV95, in fact, I...

    Denis Shapovalov to Yonex

    Why does size matter so much to you? Can't you accept that most people are human and play well some weeks and not others. It's nothing to do with head size. It's how well they are moving or how well they're seeing the ball. I'd say if I was moving well, in the groove, I'd destroy you with my...

    Nike Vapor X vs Nike Zoom Cage

    I was wondering if anyone can tell me which shoe is the better for cushioning, wear, fit etc... I've been wearing Zoom Zero and Zoom Ultra React for the last year or so, but Ultras are gone from the market. Any advice would be great
