Volkl Tennis Racquets, Known as the the Tennis Elbow Racquets for Good Reason

August 15th, 2012 by Andy

filed in Tennis Product Reviews, Tennis Racquet Reviews

Volkl tennis racquets feature some of the most advanced technology in tennis today, as well as a line of racquets that that covers all skill levels and other preferences.  Volkl’s have always been known as the “tennis elbow” racquets, because of their prevention in arm injuries due to technology that softens and dampens shock, vibration, and other feedback.  It begins with their DNX technology, which is a super-light as well as extremely strong carbon fiber material that you can find in all of their current racquets.  These fibers are created to withstand maximum force applied at all angles, giving every shot the same feel.  Having this feature in a tennis racquet means you’ll have a consistent touch with every shot, allowing your game to groove to whatever shots you’re hitting.  The DNX technology has recently been improved on, leading us to the current generation of racquets, the Volkl Organix line.

What to Look for When Shopping for a Tennis Backboard

August 8th, 2012 by Andy

filed in Tennis Product Reviews, Tennis Court Equipment Reviews

A practice tool in tennis can be as simple as a wall, but then again, all walls aren’t created equal. Tennis backboards provide great practice opportunities for people without access to a full court or a partner to return their shots.  You may be wondering why a backboard would be needed when any simple flat surface would suffice, but the backboards being created have advantages like sloping as well as more sturdy materials to keep the surface from getting warped or chipped.  In this article, I will discuss the materials you should look for in a backboard, the different types of sloping, the manufacturers that can make them, as well as some things to look out for if you are thinking about purchasing one.  Old backboards were often made of wood or brick, which is more likely to warp with excessive moisture or heat.

Anyone that knows Dunlop knows that the company has a history of producing technologically superior racquets for decades, and their newest line of racquets is no different. The Biomimetic series is their current line, and if you break down the word Biomimetic, then you`ll see the “bio” refers to things found in the natural world and “mimetic” is another way of saying mimic, so essentially, these racquets take the form of things found in nature…...

Tennis Racquet Review: Wilson BLX Six.One 95 (16x18)

July 18th, 2012 by Marc Pinckney

filed in Tennis Product Reviews, Tennis Racquet Reviews

I have played with Wilson frames for much (most) of my time as a tennis player; many more years than I care to count at this stage in my life. And I am predisposed as a result to always give any Wilson product a serious hit just on general principle. For a few years though with the whole n-Code, let’s put out a thousand frames every 18 months, I was wondering what the real plan was at Wilson. This season…

Tennis Racquet Review: Prince EXO3 Warrior 100 (MP)

July 11th, 2012 by Marc Pinckney

filed in Tennis Product Reviews, Tennis Racquet Reviews

I have to say that I don’t really understand the Prince design process or their marketing plan. Maybe the biggest issue is that the latter drives the former. The Prince EXO3 Warrior is obviously a very big deal to this company. The racquet is used and endorsed by the brightest young American star player; John Isner. And it is obvious from the magazine ads in different tennis publications and…

July 5th, 2012 by Celia Taghdiri

filed in Tennis Product Reviews, Training Aids, Tennis Lifestyle, Youth Sports

For tennis players who aspire to perform and serve at the optimum level, the Total Serve is designed for you. Based on knowledge of physical movements and different sporting activities, owner and inventor Lisa Dodson has created a tool that educates players what the accurate tennis serve and throwing motion “feel like.” Lisa has enjoyed an illustrious career in tennis. For more then 30 years, she has played tennis professionally, coached, managed tennis clubs and acted as the USTA professional tournament director. She has coached tennis players as young as 5 and as old as 85! But for many years, she used a tube sock with 3 tennis balls in it to help players understand what the proper serve should feel like. The sock, however, did not have a solid grip. Lisa says, “I found so much success with my clients with this simple tool that I decided to make…

filed in Tennis Product Reviews, Tennis Shoe Reviews

What is the main difference between men’s and women’s tennis shoes? Other than the likeliness of the color pink being involved in the styling, there are far less obvious differences.  The main difference between men’s and women’s shoes is the width…
