    Why don't pros use their string provider's stencil?

    I remember in the 90s and 2000s, the majority of players used to have their string provider's stencilled onto the bottom of the racquet, underneath the stencil logo of their racquet e.g. Sampras used a Wilson racquet so had a 'W' stencilled on his racquet and below was the Babolat stencil lines...

    Need a new racquet (Babolat pure aero alternatives)

    Hi everyone! I had been using babolat pure aero racquets and I had really liked them. But I need new racquets and I want one that feels similar to the pure aero.

    Why isn’t there more buzz about the new Babolat Pure Strike?

    Is the latest version of the Pure Strike a bust for Babolat? I don’t see too many posts about it or too many club players playing with it on the hard courts of Southern California. Project One Seven got so much hype initially, but many players found it too harsh and uncomfortable over time...

    Help me make a choice -- Heavy frame, or more modern mold?

    Howdy folks, thanks for taking a peep at this thread. I'm a computer rated 4.5 player. Never played college (biggest regret in life) and admit to having a racket addiction. I've gotten better over the years, but because of the amount of rackets I string & people I teach, I get discounts on stuff...

    There is no magic string

    I tried a lot of strings. Last one was the magic Luxilon Alu Power and Alu Power Spin. My conclusion is, none of them is doing anything special. I think they are mostly the same. They are slightly different but not too much. In my 510 gr. racquet they all feel pretty close. I can't tell much...

    What's the deal about RPM Blast and ALU Power?

    I seen RPM Blast and ALU Power are the most used strings in the professional circuit. I heard people claiming there is nothing special about them just marketing. Other claim they are the best strings. How come they are the most used string to date in the professional tour? Or am I wrong? Is...

    "50% is a frame, and 50% is a string"

    I watched TW documentary on the history of Babolat, and in one scene, Eric Babolat, the CEO of Babolat states that when it comes to the performance of the racquet "50% of the performance of the racquet is frame, and another 50% is a string". I don't have enough experience in tennis to judge it...

    More personal story...

    Hey guys. Some backstory is that I’ve played with Wilson racquets since I started my tennis journey in 2006. I was the definition of a Wilson purist, joking about babolat racquets and saying they were trash and for beginners. Then I started thinking about racquets. I began using a clash 98 and...

    Is there actually gonna be a pure aero 2020?

    Is there really gonna be a pure aero 2020? I was watching a TW racquet review of yonex, and somebody mentioned a comparison of the 2019 pure aero to the 2020, and TW responded with when it’s closer to launch. What!?
