    Good luck. I hope they are meet your requirements.

    Yonex Fusion Rev 3

    I’ve now worn these Fusion Rev 3 shoes a fair bit. They are comfortable in the toe box for my wide foot, sturdy and supportive. However, after several hours of playing I’m getting pain on the outside of my left foot. These shoes do seem narrow in the mid foot area. That might be a problem for...

    "must have" for each type of string

    Laserfibre Supreme 2 is the nicest multifilament I’ve tried for a while.

    Yonex Fusion Rev 3

    I do get the same size in SFX and they do feel slightly wider in the toe box. They are also wider in the heel area. In fact I can wear them with thick socks and ankle braces. They are perhaps too loose in the heel for me.

    Yonex Fusion Rev 3

    Yes, I wear the same size. I'd say both about the same for width and length. Maybe the Yonex is very slightly wider but it's hardly noticeable and I might be wrong. I put some Superfeet Carbon insoles into the Fusion Revs and they feel great on my feet. Having said that, see my comment above...

    I'm not familiar with those shoes. The SFX is certainly the most unstable on the 3 shoes I now have. The Yonex is pretty good though.

    Yonex Fusion Rev 3

    I played for 3 hours today in the new Yonex Fusion Rev 3. Two sets of singles and 2 of doubles. THE GOOD NEWS: 1. No blisters (yippee!). I was worried but it worked out OK. In fact the shoes were a confortable fit in the toebox and got more comfortable the more I played. 2. They were light...

    That's pity. It's annoying when a shoe you have depended on gets discontinued.

    Yonex Fusion Rev 3

    Here is a picture of the heel of the Adizero Defiant Bounce. It has a kind of bulbous base. Maybe that helps the shoes not to roll over. The Babolat and Yonex Heels are below for contrast. I'm not sure if this is significant but the Adizero has least support but feels most stable and least...

    Yonex Fusion Rev 3

    I'm obviously not a shoe expert but it's not as if the bootie construction actually gives support to the ankle like an ankle brace does. However, the Yonex shoe definitely has less space in the heel area than, say, the Babolat SFX so there is less movement there. For me the stability has more to...

    Yonex Fusion Rev 3

    Reading between the lines on the Yonex website, I think you can assume that the Eclipsion2 is intended to have more support than the Fusion Rev because Yonex marketing says the Eclipsion2 is "especially for tour competitors" whereas the Fusion Rev would suit "avid club players". I am an avid...

    Yonex Fusion Rev 3

    I tried some Vapour X on in a shop but they were too narrow for my feet. It was a struggle to get them on and when I did they pinched just about everywhere. So these are a bit wider fit – but snug.

    OK but I may not be as rapid or violent as you might be. I'll let you know after Friday. I've never worn Eclipsion 2.

    Yonex Fusion Rev 3

    At the moment, in the wild only means in my house. I won't be able to play in them until Friday – too much work to do :( The quality seems very good. They look great. Here are some pictures. https://flic.kr/s/aHsmvJWyML

    Yonex Fusion Rev 3

    I just received a pair of these in the mail from Tennis Warehouse Europe. They only had the clay ones in stock but I play mostly on artificial grass anyway so they should do fine for that. I tried them on in the house. First impressions: they are a snug fit on my feet. Not as roomy as KSwiss...

    Is this the start of TE ?

    https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/tennis-elbow/ Sometimes it is easy to overextend one’s arm while serving or trying to do a one handed backhand like Wawrinka. That would also affect the area you indicate in your picture. That might heal reasonably quickly. But the general advice would still apply...

    Comfortable Shoes

    Are these replacement insoles or additional insoles to those that come with the shoe?

    Help with slow pace balls

    Just to add to all of the above ... make sure you take a new or newish set of balls. Don’t agree to play with the used balls they fish out of their bag. A lot of your no-pace, slice and dice players love to play With balls that have hardly any bounce left.

    Shoulder to the chin - meaning?

    Here is a good picture of starting the stroke. That seems to illustrate what you are asking about. One question is: how much and at what point should one turn one’s head to the point of contact? https://goo.gl/images/dKbVEj I am right handed and right eye dominant. So it works for me to keep...

    I’m going to try it too. Wide fit shoes are hard to come by. This looks great. I have Babolat SFX3 at the moment . Pretty much everything else I’ve tried is too narrow for me.

    Hybrid String Setup For Arm Issues

    What tensions do you use with the polys and the zyex. I have a packet of zyex and it recommends stringing at 10% less than normal. If I have a poly in the mains at 49, what would you suggest from the zyex in the crosses? I might usually put in syngut in at 53. 10% less would be 48 ish. So how...

    Hybrid String Setup For Arm Issues

    I really like Weiss Cannon Dual Reality. It’s a very arm friendly hybrid. I follow their tension recommendations. If you try it, let me know what you think. I have a Yonex DR 98 (16x19) strung with Dual Reality @ 49/55 tension. https://www.tennis-warehouse.com/feedback-WCDR.html

    Okay, I don't like it, but...

    Hi there Muscles I'm about the same age as you (65) and I have two rackets that I find pretty arm friendly. A Yonex Ezone DR 98 and a ProKennex 5G. My two big hobbies are tennis and playing stringed instruments so I'm very careful with arm/wrist issues. I string with natural gut and given all...

    Looking for a soft poly to compliment my sore shoulder and my Volkl C10 Pro

    Have a look at the Head Velocity thread -- a multi but comfortable and control oriented. https://tt.tennis-warehouse.com/index.php?threads/head-velocity.586942/ Also, think about Weiss Cannon Dual Reality -- a ready-made hybrid I've tried both of these strings and like them -- especially...
