    Make my 93p more...K90-like?

    Hey friends! Impulse bought a 93p (18x20) after a nice little demo sesh last month and still trying to get things fully dialed in with it.

    Adding lead can increase vibration

    I switched to a new kind of strings, at a tension I have not tried before, and replaced the thick leather grip with a thinner one. Static weight 349 grams was smaller than before. I like the pop of the strings, but the racquet recoiled too much on impact. A larger weight is needed. I added a...

    Lead Tape vs Head guard tape

    Hi, maybe this a a silly question but I have to ask... "Head Brand" of Head Protection Tape is kind of heavy for a tape. If I cover my racket from around 9 to 3 without stretching the tape it will add 4-5 grams of weight. Will those 4-5 grams of tape be the equivalent of adding 4-5 gram of...

    Should I Increase Racket Weight

    I currently have a stock PS90 Blx so that should be about 357g. It's really easy to swing for me (idk why people say it's heavy), so should I increase weight just because I can? Is it better to weigh up the racket as much as you comfortably can, or is there a better strategy to choosing racket...

    Advice on racquet setup - AI98 customized

    I've been playing with my Yonex AI98s for about two years now. I really like my racquets and am in no position to switch to anything newer/different at the moment. That said, after I first bought them, I customized them. I haven't revisited the topic since then however now I am trying to fix...

    Looking precisely cut lead tape length ways

    Sorry if this is not allowed post. I am looking to trim some reels of lead tape to make them 1/4" and 3/8' wide. 36 yard reels. Any ideas where I could get this done by a machine. I needs to be near perfect.
