NEW Genesis Intrepid Racquet–

March 18, 2014 by

Genesis recently introduced its 2nd racquet to the line and we are proud to announce that we now offer it, Intrepid.  For those familiar with the high-quality string offerings produced by Genesis should definately try out their racquets! Their first racquet introduced a few years back is the Thunder Power racquet which plays very similar to the Babolat Aero Pro Drive but more similar to the original one as used by Rafael Nadal. It is a one piece construction and plays very solid. For Babolat Aero Pro Drive users, check out the Genesis Thunder Power racquet and you will not be let down!

Now as we turn the page to the Genesis Intrepid racquet, our playtest team found this racquet to be very solid as well. Most playtesters found the racquet to play similar to the Babolat Pure Drive, Head Radical, Wilson Blade and other simialr racquets out there on the market today. The racquet has a great blend of power and control and is the ideal racquet for the aggressive baseliner. 

Genesis’s Toray Carbon Fibers technology provides improved control and feel combined with impressive acceleration. A thinner beam at the throat allows players to swing confidently without the fear of losing ball control. This racquet is perfect for the aggressive baseline player who likes to play with heavy topspin from both groundstrokes. On serve, we found great feedback with loads of power and spin. At net, Intrepid is easy to maneuver and offers nice touch. The large sweetspot offers a crisp feel with exhilirating precision. The racquet is constructed from a single mold from the grip handle to the head of the racquet. This unique construction is what makes the racquet feel so solid which also means less shock to the player.

New String from Genesis- Genesis True Grit

March 18, 2014 by

Genesis recently introduced its newest string to its fine line of products, True Grit. Their product description states that True Grit is a further development of premium co-polyester strings offered by Genesis. Utilizing cutting edge technology and new composite additives, True Grit delivers outstanding performance. Genesis True Grit is a 10 sided shaped string that offers exceptional spin, control, comfort, and power. True Grit is also axially twisted and offers a tremendous blend of dynamic power and spin while providing excellent tension stability and playability.

We took  the courts to playtest this new string and came back with very positive results. This string does offer a great blend of power, control and spin. We found it to be as durable to other co-polyester strings we have tested to date such as the Signum Pro Poly Plasma, Signum Pro Tornado, Genesis Typhoon, Topspin Culex Squarestring among many others. We found this string to shine in the tension stability department as the string maintained its tension very well. The twisted shape may not make this the most pleasant string to string but it makes up for it in performance.

Q&A on Which strings are right for your game

October 19, 2012 by

Q.What guidelines do you suggest for how often players should change their strings? 

A. There are several factors that come into account when determining how long strings last. Players should change their strings based on the type of string they use, how often they play, whether they have a competitive match coming up and how much tension the string has lost. Many players change strings when they break, but too often the difference between winning a match 7-6 in the third set and losing one may be the strings that are on your racquet. One thing we recommend is cutting out poly-based strings once they go dead and many people wonder how long do strings last before they go “dead”. This varies from player to player, from string to string but typically once a week (6-8 hours of play) for a competitive junior/adult or mid age adult player  every 3-4 weeks (18-20 hours) for a recreational player. Once you notice the performance of your string going downhill and you feel like you lost control, put in some new fresh strings. There are many devices to check string tension on your racket. The best one we had found is ERT-300, which accurately provides you with DT, which you can relate to your actual string tension. If you use strings as hybrid, then you are having two opposite worlds. Let’s assume you’re playing with “stiff” poly that has already lost tension and becomes dead and a soft syn gut that loses tension and stretches so much that you’re loosing control more and more with every shot you make. Which string would you blame more?
Some of the polyesters, specially from Poly Star are very soft and comfortable and are typically not used in a hybrid due to the rapid tension lost.

Q.What has been the biggest change you’ve seen in the market during the last few years and what trends do you see as most important in the near future?

A. The string industry has changed dramatically over the past couple of years as poly-based strings have been known for losing tension and being stiff and their point of view has drastically changed for the better in the past few years. With the growth and development of hexagonal, heptagonal, twisted, textured, pentagonal and now triangular strings on the market, there are hundreds of different strings that may possibly take your game to the next level. With the way technology has improved the evolution of strings recently, the future of the string industry will be very interesting, to say the least. All companies are now heading in a direction to produce soft and comfortable polyesters and are seeking ways of offering excellent durability without the loss of feel and comfort. 

Here is a short list for strings that we think hold tension well and the same time great to play with. They are soft and comfortable:

Genesis Typhoon

Genesis Black Magic

Topspin Cyber Blue

Signum Pro Poly Plasma

Genesis Thunder Blast

Remember:  Strings that lose tension can hurt your joints in the long run so contact us today if you are seeking the proper string your body and game!

New from Asics- Asics Gel Resolution 4 Tennis Shoe

March 6, 2012 by

The Asics GEL-RESOLUTION 4 has become a leading tennis shoe and has many brands trying to keep up. It boasts rearfoot and forefoot GEL for unsurpassed cushioning and shock absorption DuoTruss and lateral forefoot wraps for excellent support in all directions P Guard toe reinforcements and AHAR+ outsole to provide durability exactly where it is required and a Solyte midsole to make it extremely light. All these technologies and many more combine within the GEL-RESOLUTION 3 to create a shoe that performs at an exceptionally high standard on all surfaces.

Asics, maybe a weird name but a great shoe for tennis. Asics is actually a combination of 4 words in Latin meaning a sound mind in a sound body. To be precise for you language lovers, the exact saying in Latin is If you’re a stickler for proper language, it is Anima Sana In Corpore Sano. Pretty cool sounding huh?. It wasn’t very long ago that Latin was a a language course that many people had to take in school. Although not many take it anymore unless they are studying law, it remains to me to be an interesting language, and the Asics gel resolution 3 tennis shoes are very interesting and cool to boot.

The Resolution 4 is for tennis players who demand the best that ASICS has to offer. Comes loaded with performance features, including Impact Guidance System (I.G.S.®), Solyte® midsole material, PHF® (Personalized Heel Fit), and PGuard™ toe protector. This third version of the Gel Resolution features the proprietary Flexion Fit upper which provides form-fitting comfort without sacrificing support. The inclusion of an extended trusstic adds torsional rigidity and enhanced medical stability.

  • A lighter weight midsole compound than ASICS’ standard EVA and SpEVA®. Also features enhanced cushioning and durability.
  • Flexion Fit™
    Proprietary upper which provides form fitting comfort without sacrificing support.
  • Trusstic System®
    Reduces the weight of the sole unit while retaining the structural integrity of the shoe.
  • P.H.F.® (Personal Heel Fit)
    2 layers of memory foam line the collar and mold to the athlete’s heel, creating a personalized fit.
  • AHAR®
    Acronym for ASICS® High Abrasion Rubber. Placed in critical areas of the outsole for exceptional durability.
  • Asics will offer the men’s version in black and green with silver accents (the black shoelaces even have a green tip), as well as a more traditional white with blue trim. The women’s Gel-Resolution 4 will be available in all white as well as the blue-and-pink cosmetic.
