    How racquet frame affects serve speed and spin

    Hi, I recently tested and compared the Tecnifibre TFight vs. Yonex Vcore both at 305g and 98 inches head size. Both racquets were tuned with the same amount of lead tape at 3 and 9. Both racquets had the same strings and tension and OG. I tested them the same day on the same indoor hard court...

    Best tension poly/sgut hybrid for spin?

    I'm using Signum Pro X-perience 1.18/Pro's Pro Synthetic 1.30 hybrid in my Prince Phantom Pro 100. I actually string at 49lbs (22kg) and I like it a lot. BUT I'm curious to know if lowering the tension of sgut crosses could give me more spin and wider sweetspot?? :unsure:

    Spin Serve -- ok?

    Hi, I was in a league match. I do not serve hard but I put a lot of slice spin on my serve. My opponent complained that it is not a "Gentleman's Serve", does he have a point? Or was he a sore loser? My slice serve went to his weaker side.

    Balls fly at inclination like the Earth

    Forehand groundstrokes down the line fly at 6-12 o'clock direction. I see the ball spinning at 4-10 direction. I am rightie. The rotation axis of the Earth inclines at 23.4 degrees. Mine is like 40. What does it tell? Contact point too far from or too much in front of the body?

    Crisp feeling poly with max playability duration and spin?

    My first criteria for choosing strings is playability duration and then spin. This criteria led me to a full bed of Ashaway Kevlar 18g @40lbs in terms of feel and spin; I love seeing the fuzz in the air after ripping a forehand. But yeah had wrist and elbow discomfort and cut it out. Went back...

    Strings for Pro Staff 95S (2015 - Black and Red version)

    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.

    Racquet Hunt: Something less dampened.

    I've been playing with the Aero line for almost 10 years, but since I'm not a junior anymore, I'm finding I don't need such a powerful racquet, and would like something with a little more feel and control. Recently I have demoed 5 racquets (I will rank in order of preference): 1. Yonex SV 95- I...

    A String Like Cyclone Tour That's Easier To String

    Is there a string that plays similar to CT that's less of a pain to string? It's a great string, but if there is something that plays similar to it and is easier to string up, I'd like to try it. I want to keep comfort in mind.

    Does String Color Play A Difference In Cyclone?

    Most gauges for Cyclone have the option of black, orange, and yellow (Looks like 18g is the only one with pink). Has anyone tested out multiple string colors and noticed any difference in playability? Is control affected? Any difference in spin? Play duration? Also, are there any other big...
