    Logos on posters

    Hi all, Any thoughts on whether or not it is ok to have brand logos (Wilson, Babolat etc.) on posters or other material to outline what brands of string you are stocking and using? Thanks, Phil.

    A tip for better accuracy when measuring swingweight

    Hi Irvin, Need to pick your brain again!! Made that device for unstrung swingweight but when I hang the racket it doesn't swing in the axis I need to measure the swingweight and swivels back and forth as well as left to right. Was using a piece of poly string to hang it. Do I just need...

    Grommet replacement

    Hi all, Just wondering if you wanted to put some lead under the bumper/grommet strip on a new racket that has never been strung (RF97 autograph), could you pull out the grommets and re-install or would you still need a new set in this case? Thanks, Phil.

    Measure Twist Weight

    So it swivels side to side while hanging above it's head from the plastic? Makes sense. I thought it had to be sideways which is what was confusing me. Thanks.

    Measure Twist Weight

    @Irvin, last question of the day! Why with Stoneage's method is his hang point so low (7.5) and in your screenshots it is 69.2 Think I follow most of it but getting lost at that piece. You are still hanging the racket on it's side right?

    A tip for better accuracy when measuring swingweight

    Brilliant @Irvin. Thanks as always! Also I guess you just input the hang point and swing point at 10cm?

    A tip for better accuracy when measuring swingweight

    Hi everyone, if you wanted to test unstrung swingweight, could you run a piece of string through the frame and tie it off outside then hang it from this?

    DIY: Balance Board

    Thanks a million! My board seems fine but any videos and bits i had seen had this perfectly floating frame so I was starting to wonder :) Thanks again.

    DIY: Balance Board

    Hi everyone, quick question on this. Made a board at the weekend with some eye screws and a dowel however I am struggling to get the racket to balance exactly. It goes from handle down to head down with the tiniest movement. Trying to work out if the dowel is too thin or maybe not completely...

    Why'd I get this balance board? Ignorance is bliss

    Quick question on this. Made a board at the weekend with some eye screws and a dowel however I am struggling to get the racket to balance exactly. It goes from handle down to head down with the tiniest movement. Trying to work out if the dowel is too thin or maybe not completely level or if I am...

    DIY - Matching rackets

    Thanks for explaining that. So in effect, using something like the stringway calculator https://www.stringwaynederland.nl/SW-TA-online/SwingCalc/index-en.php where you input length, balance point and weight and get a figure in kg cm2 can't be used to then determine swingweight without some...

    DIY - Matching rackets

    @Irvin apologies if this has been covered before, how does the kg cm2 figure relate to the simple swingweight number provided by manufacturers and how can you convert kg cm2 to this number? Thanks.

    Wilson specs

    Ya it's not ideal! The handle is even more annoying on the third racket. That one is as big without an overgrip as the other two are with the overgrip on!

    Wilson specs

    Yes the last one seems crazy alright. The handle size is running pretty big on one of the frames as well. I picked numbers 2,3 and 4

    Wilson specs

    They were the details sent to me by Tennis Warehouse Europe after measurements. Maybe that is a typo but I have just copied the details provided in their email.

    Wilson specs

    I bought three RF97 rackets a while back and had a few measured before buying to try get three similar. Thought people might be interested in the specs across six frames: weight inertia balance 338 295 30.5 339 302 30.8...

    Paint chipped near throat grommets

    Sure just had never seen paint chipping in this area before. If that is pretty normal then cool. Sent from my HTC One mini 2 using Tapatalk

    Paint chipped near throat grommets

    Rackets only strung twice, two grommets to the left of tie of you can see where paint has chipped around grommet. Anyone have any idea what may have caused this? Thanks Phil.

    Clamp angle

    Fair enough I'll make sure to take note next time. I don't see anything untoward until I release tension but maybe now I know what I'm doing wrong I'll spot it. Thanks.

    Clamp angle

    Didn't realise I was doing that. Any tips to avoid it? Hopefully I will avoid it now that I'm aware of it.

    Clamp angle

    Hi everyone, Just have a quick question regarding the string clamps. Occasionally, when clamping off the clamp exerts a downward pressure on the string near the grommet when I release the tension head. Doesn't always happen and can't figure out why it is happening when it does! Could the...

    Gamma 5800 ELS assembly

    Would like to say a massive thanks to @Irvin, John @Gamma Tech and especially @Geoff (who even took a phone call to talk me through it all) for all their time in helping out. Turns out the wrong screws came in the box and John is sending the correct ones out. I will update here at a later stage...
