    What's your top and bottom racket choice?

    I wanna know what your top choice and last choice of racket brand would be and why. I'll start. Top: Yonex because amazing quality control and nice plus length offerings. Oh, and generous handle mold length even on standard length. Find a yonex you love and it's hard to beat that quality...

    Anyone know this Junior Racker? Y ones RQS 26. Barely a thing about it online (got given it) 9/10 condition.

    Hi, I saw a rich old lady in a Bently motor (250,00 minimum) at the local recycling centre throwing away a 2008 babolat barely used Pure Drive 2008 with a mix of natural gut and synth gut on the crosses, and synth gut on the mains. It was a wonderful find and she handed it over to me for...

    Yonex Vcore Tour G 310 vs Vcore 95 (2021 red/blue version)

    I originally played the Babolat Pure Storm LTD (black/yellow) for the longest time and switched to Prince Classic Graphite 100 to Babolat Pure Storm GT (10.4oz version) to Yonex Vcore Tour G 310. I play with all of them in stock forms. For me, all of them have 1 thing that I look forward, the...

    2020 Yonex Ezone 100 way too stiff

    I don't know if it's me but I find the ezone 100 way too stiff. It was strung with a full bed of Yonex Poly Tour Strike 17 gauge at 53 pounds tension. When practicing with the racket my wrist hurts due to feeling the brunt of the force for off-center hits. I recently purchased a 2020 ezone 98+...

    Yonex Duel G 310 stringing pattern?

    I brought my Yonex Duel G 310 to the stringer yesterday and picked it up today. The guy told me that his colleague who was stringing it got confused by the pattern at the top of the frame. The guy tried to figure it out with her but he also wasn't sure. They ended up with this: It's a 16x20. I...

    Graphene 360+ Presitge MP/ Graphene 360+ Speed Pro/ VCore 95 '21

    Out of curiosity which is closest to the Blade v7 18x20? I've been reading that both Head racquets are similar to some degree to the Blade, but curious as to what characteristics they all share and which are the outliers. I'm aware of the TF40 being a direct comparison, more interested in other...

    Playing with a 2020 Ezone 100 and 98+ at the same time?

    Dear members, I currently own a 2020 ezone 100 and like every aspect about it with the exception of having too much free power at times. I was on the lookout for a 98 tour (for stability + control + less free power) but got an amazing deal for a 98+ and therefore bought it. I am planning to use...

    Hello everyone! I bet some of you had been stuck in the decision-making process of choosing a new tennis racquet. With so many to choose from I am lost myself and I need some advice. The only problem is that I live in the UK and there are not many racquet demoing services available here. I...

    Hello, I'm trying to make my Yonex RDX 500 Midplus feel more crisp as it is quite a plush racquet. Any suggestions on how to do this e.g. strings, weight? Thanks.

    Brief introduction: I am a self-rated highly competitive 5.0 / 5.5 lvl guy who participates in many local tournaments. My main stick now is Angell TC95 16x19. Game style/mindset: Grinder ? Counter-puncher ? I get best match results when I focus on CONSISTENCY and ACCURACY. Think Djokovic or...

    Switched from Babolat Pure Strike Tour G1 to Yonex VCore Pro 330

    I recently switched from the PS Tour G1 that I had been playing with for 3-4 years. Main reason behind the switch was I wanted more feel and was getting some unpleasant vibrations from the racquet. I switched strings, however, I didn't like the feel after trying several strings. I probably could...

    Yonex VCORE 98 2018 original replacement grip

    What is the grip on the original VCORE 98 year 2018 called? I'm pretty sure I read somewhere that you can't get it retail, so if that is the case, what is the closest thing to it that would allow for the same weight as you would get originally before replacing it? I switched to a replacement...

    Does anyone know where to get the new Yonex shirts that we are seeing on Tour right now with the stripes on the sleeves? They have been on Tour since US Open 2020 but I have not seen one shop carrying these new ones.

    Yonex VCORE 98 2018 customizations?

    Hi there, for those of you who are using VCORE 98's 2018 edition, not the SV or anything like that, but the red or galaxy black one, I need a little bit of help. So main racket is the Ezone Tour 98 and it's static weight is 334g. I have no idea the actual swingweight, but TW says about 330...

    Yonex PTP vs PTF vs PTS?

    how many people are able to play with all 4 round yonex poly strings in the same racquet at the same tension? (i added air as a late contender, hence title) i always thought Poly Tour Air was PTP with some softening/absorbing outside layer i thought Poly Tour Fire was PTP with a silicone...

    Intrigued by Yonex - which racquet to buy?

    With all the buzz about Yonex around here (thanks TW for the videos!) I'm intrigued to try a Yonex racquet. My goal is to buy a racquet that gives me the real feel on how a good Yonex racquet plays, but I'm finding a lot of overlap between lines. After discovering how much everyone loves the...

    Has anyone tried the 2020 Ezone yet?

    I am still playing with the DR. Nothing even remotely close to being as good has popped up yet. Is the 2020 Ezone similar to the DR 98, or is it more of an iteration of the 2018 Ezone. Thanks!

    Ball pocketing vs. Top spin

    I recently heard the Tennis Warehouse podcast about classic racquets (here) (which was really good by the way), and it really made me wonder how ball pocketing (or as some of the playtesters say "plush feeling") affects topspin generated by a racquet. I understand the science behind how, when...

    Is over 10 year out of date too old for a racket??

    I was wondering if pro’s will use dated rackets with a paint job? I have a Yonex RDS 001 MP (Hewitt/Nalbandian era) it is clearly very out of date but I’m yet to find a racket I enjoy hitting as much as it. Think I got it around 2006?! I was wondering if I’m missing out on new technology or if...

    Guesses for when 2020 EZONE Price will drop?

    I got to playtest the new 2020 EZONE 100 at the USTA National Campus during a tennis trade show a little while back. And boy, that was the best most epic racquet I've ever gotten to hit with by far! Perfectly suited my game. I currently am using a Prokennex Q+5 310 and it just doesn't work well...

    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...
