Ubersonic 2 vs Speed Solution 3

Currently have a few pairs of SS3's but was looking to snag a pair of Ubers. For those who have played with both, do you have a preference? How about sizing? I wear an 11.5 in SS3 but a 11 in Gel Res 7. How does the Uber sizing work?

Thanks.

If the fit of the SS3 works for you, SS3 all the way.

I only went to the Ubers bc I couldn't break in the narrow fit of the SS3 and had some issues that were a deal breaker.

Ubers doesn't offer the same plush cushioning, feel clunkier, and don't have the same stability as the SS3. The most frustrating part of the Ubers is the shoe laces can't seem to stay tight. Not that they become undone, but esp with heavy lateral movements, they feel like they've become looser. I find myself re-tieing my laces every changeover, which is rather annoying.

But I didn't have any pain with the Ubers as I did with the SS3 so ultimately I've stuck with the Ubers.

I played in both in the same size.

What shoes have you worn and what were your complaints about the Ubersonics?

:cool:
I have worn the ss3, ubersonics, barricades, novak pros, babolat propulse, gr7, and vapor 9.5

Ubersonics have no support whatsoever, not tight, foot slips, and major toe jamming. The traction also sucks

Interesting, I have not experienced a
single thing from what you are describing (maybe with the exception of stability compared to the Barricades lol).

Also interesting that you run the gamut from shoes for wide feet to shoes for narrow feet and from the heaviest to the super light.

I have experienced similar problems like Nav Dalmia. Got the Ubersonics white/pink colorway. Love the colorway. Unfortunately, hated the shoes. My foot slips alot, I remember I was chasing down a ball and fell right into the fence. My toes were bleeding, got a big scar on my right temple. Never bought another ubersonic. I have experienced with different shoes like Nav Dalmia, too. from barricades , cage 2 3, vapor 9.5, unbersonics, propulse. I have to say my fav always comes back to Vapor 9.5. Stable, light, and fit me perfectly.

My experience has been similar to rogueFLIP, except the SS3 fits me well. My Uber 2 is the clay model so it’s OK for lower impact but would be a deal breaker on hard courts. The SS3 is a much better shoe IMO.
