    Head graphene prestige 360+ MP (2020) vs. Yonex score pro 97 HD (2019)

    Hey fellow Tennis enthusiasts! I have done lots of research to find a good stick for myself. Unfortunately, I can't demo rackets at all, because of the place I'm from. Both these rackets are not available for demo where I'm at. Otherwise I could have tested myself which one I would buy. I'm now...

    So I'm in my first year (ninth grade) high school in a pretty large public high school. Our tennis program is pretty good, and we have players who are ranked top in the state or have been playing for a while.

    Any string set ups for the Yonex VCORE PRO 97 330?

    I injured my shoulder around March just before one of my team matches during warm ups and don't want to switch racquets just yet. At the time I was using a cheap babolat racquet that you can find at your local ***** sporting goods, so it was technique based rather than the racquet. Now I use the...

    Looking for a more comfortable Pure Strike gen 3

    I've been playing with a strike for about a month now and I love it but my arm doesn't. I'm mostly fine when I'm hitting the sweetspot even with all poly, but when I'm tired I start shanking, probably due to the weight. Mine is actually really off spec, I had to add 11 grams of weight to the...

    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...

Not the most powerful serve, but not weak either. I tend not to hit a very powerful 1st serve. I can vary its placement and spin. I...

    I'd like to thank everyone who commented on my last vid. I spent 10 minutes or so trying implement all of your guys' suggestions before I took this vid and I figured it might take a good bit repetition to adjust my muscle memory, so I'll put some more time into it later. Anyways, to everyone who...

    Losing tension when stringing crosses.

    Hi guys, I’m using a gamma progression drop weight machine and every time I’ve strung a racket so far when I get to the crosses they always end up coming off in the range of 38-45lbs. I’ve used Poly, Syn Gut, Natural Gut, Multi and always the same. I’ve also changed the tension to try and...

    Cycling questions.

    I recently picked up an old, recently refurbished 18-speed mountain bike. It appeared to be a pretty high-end bicycle, quite nice for its time, as far as I can tell. Comfort-wise, though, it is absolutely KILLING me. I did a 15 mile bike ride the other day, and when I tried to get back on the...

    How do I deal with an opponents mishits, frames, and net hits?

    I have a friend on my high school tennis team, lets call him bob, bob is tall and uses the babolat pure aero and hits his forehand in a western grip because he is tall and likes to hit balls while they are high. Due to his grip and that he doesn't watch the ball as he hits it he ends up framing...

    Boss is mad at me for supposedly not doing something that I actually did. Help me out, guys.

    Okay, so here's the deal. A few weeks ago I started work in a tennis pro shop. I do court and facilities maintenance. It's at a popular yacht club in the area. Yesterday it was raining, so a good bit of the work I would have had to do wasn't doable. When I got there, the trash cans were all...

    Where to get red prostaff RF97 Autograph

    Fairly basic purpose for wanting one. Want same static weight as 90, but the plow of the RF and the sweetspot of a 97. Also don't want to drop more than $200, $250 for the black stick is way too much. Don't care if the racket is used or not, just no cracks, serious damage, etc. Also is full...

    Strings for Wilson Pro Staff 95s {2015 - Black and Red, not the (predominantly) White edition}

    Hi! So I'm currently using a Prince Phantom 100 (with the O3 ports and all!). It's strung with Volkl Cyclone at the moment. I had the chance to use my friend's old PS95s (2015) and fell in love with it, I think it's such an easy racquet to transition to after having played with the PP100. The...
