Head Graphene 360 Radical Pro

Head Graphene 360 Radical Series Don’t let the word “Pro” scare you away from trying this racquet! You can see all the specs below but this 98 square inch head and thin beam (20/23/21) add up to a definitive “players” racquet just slightly heavier than the MP but having the same swing weight.

Wilson Ultra 100 CV Variable(s)

Tim recently posted a good review of the Wilson Ultra 100 CV and I thought it would be fun, and just maybe informative, to see what an alternative string, tension, and machine would have on the data. This presentation is to visualize what a difference can be made by racquet technicians through understanding what affects the performance of [see more]

Now You Think of it!

So, it has been a while since you had your racquet strung and you are standing on the court about to receive and you ask yourself; “I wonder when I should get my racquet strung”. Now is probably not the best time to think of it but if you do simply take a look at [see more]

Wilson Clash Tour

If you read the Wilson Clash 100 review there is not much to say about the Wilson Clash Tour in terms of graphics because it is exactly the same! So we can go directly to the differences between the two models. The Tour does have the “word” tour on the racquet but little else in [see more]

Brittany Tagliareni…a Winner!

It seems that in our business of racquet preparation we may be offered some pretty unique things for payment of our services. [see more]

Yonex VCore Series is Red…and Hot!

The new Yonex VCore Series is Red and Hot!  Yonex has incorporated several of their best ideas into this VCore model series.  Some may be easy to overlook but still yeild some performance enhancements, like the “straight hole” design which may allow more string movement and increased dwell time, like the “trench design” that tucks [see more]
