Post Pictures of your Racquets and Tennis Gear

Rookie


I am missing playing tennis so much, that I desperately try to stay in touch with them and try out new grips :D

First time ever, I will try a leather grip. I am missing on my new Blade 98 v7 the feel of the bevels and also I want the racket to be more HL.
I bought on Amazon OEHMS leather premium, which are even smelling like high quality when opening. The leather feels very soft and gentle when touching. Installing it was harder than I thought. At the beginning it startet to roll a bit so I had to pull harder, but eventually I think I did an OK job (in the middle I was tying once with too much overlap).

I also bought for the first time the very popular Tourna Overgrip (XL). I like the Wilson Pro OG a lot, but I needed 2 OG's on my Blade to prevent blisters. I am sure after this long abstinence of tennis my blisters will come back then.. even more so with leather now as the basic grip.
Any tips.. which OG is thicker, softer to skin? Wilson or Tourna? I am afraid two OG's now will shift balance too much and add to much added weight.

Social Distancing
Day 11

Took the Muscle Weaves out of the stash, unwrapped the grips, cleaned the sticks out, regripped with Head Tour leather and Head Super Comp overgrips. Restrung them too.

Only to put right back in the closet.

*sigh*


How much distance is required in your “social distancing”? I don’t recall last time I was within 15+ ft from my tennis opponent or the guy next court...

just read your next post :(
Hope the weather improves soon
No stopping for us in Dallas (except today - rain)

I miss down south so much sometimes! It is still indoor tennis up here in Northern Michigan right now. No chance we can play outside at least till end of next month.

If you like the Wilson Pro and want thicker you should try Tourna Mega Tac, it’s exactly what you’re looking for and lasts longer than Wilson Pro.

Found this old Slazenger Phantom Tour Kevlar Braided under the stairs, theres a lot of old stuff under there. Strung with a full bed of Duraflex and played a little kitchen tennis with it and feels great. 332 strung with that old rubber band on. Having this strung with Max Power at 50 and take it out on the courts when social distancing is relaxed - see how it really performs. Don't know the RA but felt like it flexed in throat a tad even in short court. Hope it turns out to be a gem.

Amazing collection. You're missing a 2014 PS90, though I guess that's why you have an extra 2013.
It's sad that it never saw any TV time due to his injured season and switch to the larger 97. Because the 2014 Pro Staff 90 was easily the best version of the 90. It took them almost a decade, but with the 2014, they finally nailed the feel of the 6.0 85 into the frame of the 90.

I was able to get one to hit with before the release and agree with you @Say Chi Sin Lo
