    What's wrong with my serve?

    I am welcoming criticism, I really want to improve. I was trying to go for more speed than simply passing the ball, so I hit with a bit more power that I would use in a regular match. I think the main mistake on my serve is my toss, I hit the ball way on top of my head, sometimes I make contact...

    I have 2021 and 2023 versions of Head Gravity Pro, and I am trying to increase its power, spin potential and launch angle while retaining other great characteristics of this frame (feel, precision and control).

    Fastest serve setup

    This is mainly a theoretical question since it is proven that big servers are not winning that much after all. All the various Isner, Roddick, Karlovic, Raonic and so on won less titles when compared to players with slower serve. Say your 1st serve speed is today 100mph (160km/h), how much...

    Quantifying racquet power

    Racquet power is one of the most referenced measures when talking about a racquet. Is there any measure that actually helps one truly assess power differences, for example, in percents? In my particular case, I am interested in understanding what is a true power difference between Blade v7...

    Yonex Poly Tour Strike power

    Hi, Do you also find PTS to have a lot of power? I play with Yonex Vcore98 with a SW of 305/330g (unstrung/strung). I usually string at 24kg. With PTS I struggle to tame its power. I really have to play like the ball is an egg and avoid to break it to keep it in. Even if I play with a lot of...

    Blade, but less demanding as Blade 98s

    Hello, I've tried Blade 98s and it's a bit to demanding for me and lacks some power. All of the Blades looks very interesting. I like to play aggressive from base line with heavy spin and especially forehand winners. Was thinking about Blade 101l. All of the 12, 13 years old club players use...

    Swing weight to power ratio—if you're strong why heavy?

    So I'm pretty new to tennis, but just wanted to discuss racquet swing weight to power ratio for your personal game style. If you're a strong athlete and heavy hitter, wouldn't it make sense to grab a racquet that's lighter in weight? If swing weight creates more power through the ball, wouldn't...

Recently I have demoed 5 racquets (I will rank in order of preference): 1. Yonex SV 95- I...
