Hybrid新體驗: Solinco Tour Bite Diamond Rough 17 + Babolat RPM Blast 17g

By admin, May 10, 2016 17:08

上次Tecnifibre新出的Black Code 4S 18g/1.20mm使用感覺一直都很硬 (也就是甜點比較小),大概維持了7個月就自動斷線了。

這次聽一位師兄介紹,挑選了這個比Black Code硬度更為低的Poly線Solinco Tour Bite Diamond Rough 17g作為Main (52lb),而Cross則配搭之前用過比較硬的黑色Babolat RPM Blast 17g (55lb)。

開始的時候感覺整幅線床不夠Power,但用了大概一個鐘頭後,就開始慢慢適應了。發現整體感覺還是不錯的,尤其是發球,沒有再像以前震動得那麼利害 ,而且兩個鐘頭後手臂也沒有出現之前的酸軟,很可能跟Diamond Rough作為Main導致線床比較軟的原因。

最後發現不同網球線製造商的規格原來存在著輕微差異,譬如大家雖然都是Gauge 17但直徑(mm)還是有分別的。

Tecnifibre 17 = 1.25
Wilson 17 = 1.24
Solinco 17 = 1.20
Head 17 = 1.30

Solinco Tour Bite Diamond Rough 17

Solinco Tour Bite Rough is a textured co-poly with a phenomenal blend of precision and spin potential. The firm feel and extremely predictable response will enable players to take huge cuts at the ball. A great option for strong intermediates and advanced players who like ripping the cover off the ball. Try this thin gauge for even greater spin potential. Feels slightly softer than the original Tour Bite.

  • Gauge: 17g (1.20mm)
  • Length: 40ft/12.2m
  • Construction: Co-polyester
  • Color: Silver

Update: July 31, 2016

Last set didn’t even last for 3 months, but did produce good feeling, so I went back to the same set again, but this time 53lb x 55lb.

Update: Nov 14, 2016

The combination lasted more than 3 months this time, I decided to go for it again. this time string tension is 53lb x 53lb.

Update: Feb 1, 2016

The combination lasted for 2 1/2 months only!

Happy Tennis: 7th Year Anniversary (7週年紀念)

By admin, March 13, 2016 17:38

過去一年裡主要集中單打訓練。

底線、腳法和網前都比過往有較大的進步,Top/Under Spin也多了不少變化。對於強勁的抽擊,開始懂得如何四兩撥千斤,以其人之道,還治其人之身。即係撞個波返去,的確好好使,而且慳水慳力,何樂而不為。

策略方面多了思考發球後下一步應該如何進行,尤其在實戰中觀察和尋找出對方的弱點。

逐漸學會了如何放鬆身體和思想,這樣才能發揮出最大的Power。

“Empty your mind! Be formless, shapeless, like water. If you put water  into a cup, it becomes the cup. Put it into a bottle, it becomes the  bottle, you put into a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Now water can  flow, or it can crash: Be water, my friend!”

- Bruce Lee

最後就是之前師兄教落,打波靠對腳,輕盈的步伐才是致勝關鍵,看看Federer優美的步姿就知道這個沒錯了。

Some interesting statistics:

Courts Booked: ~192場
Tennis Balls: 36罐
Restring: 5次

String Tension

By admin, December 21, 2015 08:56

“String Tension”,measured in either pounds or kilograms, specifies the pressure by which the strings are secured to the racquet frame during stringing. Tension has a strong influence on your string-bed’s and, by extension, your racket’s behaviour.  The following table will help you to understand how this behaviour is affected by tension:

LOW TENSION HIGH TENSION
CONTROL LESS MORE
POWER MORE LESS
SPIN LESS MORE
COMFORT MORE LESS
DURABILITY MORE LESS

第一對Nike Zoom Vapor 9.5 Tour

By admin, November 25, 2015 13:38

兩個月前我的Barricade V Classic經過10個月後終於報廢,而Adidas Barricade 2015 (B9)跟B6-B8一樣,後面還是比較單薄,很容易刮傷腳部。

另外Nike也不再推出舒服好穿的Court Ballistec 4.3,而變成了不適合香港天氣,鞋面極之不透氣的Nike Lunar Ballistec 1.5。

環顧之下,剩下唯一的選擇只有正在做大特價的Federer的Zoom Vapor 9.5 Tour。

大部份擁有Zoom Vapor的師兄之前都跟我都反映過這雙網球鞋很舒服,最大的問題就是不耐用,大概6個月就完了。

我試穿的感覺很不錯,最大分別就是重量很輕,而且左右腳跟明顯感到有兩塊回彈力頗高的像Air氣墊的物料。 (Zoom?)

最後發現標籤裡寫著版本的日期為03/15/15。

日本網球雜誌 (Smash and Tennis Classic )

昨天逛SOGO,發現原來香港都有得賣這兩本日本網球雜誌,大概港幣$77,不過就比日本貴8成。

新的Black Code終於推出了!

By admin, September 29, 2015 13:47

我的另一支後備球拍Head Extreme Pro一直都是穿Black Code,同一幅線用了3年半,線床並沒有出現任何死亡的跡象,而且越打越舒服,實在想不出為什麼會這樣。

這次選的是Tecnifibre新出的Black Code 4S 18g/1.20mm,第一次穿這麼纖細的網球線(原來還有更細的19g!)。一般來講,球線越細,控制力越好,當然也更容易磨損,希望遲些時候試拍的時候這幅新的Poly可以帶給我一個全新的體驗。

另外聽了經驗豐富的師兄建議,這次拉的Tension是52lb (Main) x 50lb (Cross)。

Black is Back! With Black Code 4S, Tecnifibre gives big hitters a durable, low-powered co-poly with MASSIVE spin potential, impressive tension maintenance and great feel (especially for a firm monofilament). Boasting a square profile and sharp edges, this string puts a very tight grip on the ball. Topspin players will be able to hit high-arching, spin-loaded balls that come down sharply and explode off the court. For this string Tecnifibre uses Thermocore Technology, a multi-stage heating technique designed to soften the structure and reduce harsh impact vibrations. This helps explain why our playtesters were so impressed with the comfort level. Players looking for a durable co-poly with phenomenal control and spin-potential should definitely give this one a serious look. Try this thin 18g for more spin and feel than the other gauges.

  • Gauge: 18g/1.20mm
  • Length: 40ft/12.2 m
  • Composition: Co-polyester with Thermocore Technology.
  • Colors: Black

Update: Feb 12, 2016

Blackcode Guage 18 doesn’t feel right, as it’s too thin and too stiff, probably need to lower the string to 45-48lbs. Also just re-strung another racket with Black Code 17 (previous one got broken during a match after almost 3 years, yeah!), 50lb (Main) x 48lb (Cross), it feels much much better this time, I shall stay at this range from now on.

網球拍避震膠

By admin, July 29, 2015 14:13

過去用了二十多年,最近終於發現沒了避震膠的手感是如此的不同! 尤其是底線抽擊,幾乎每一球都可以確定回球的深度,這是以前從來沒有的感覺。技術分析應該是避震膠增加了整個線床的Tension,所以擊球的時候自然回彈力沒那麼強。

唯一抱怨就是拿走了避震膠的頭幾次手腕感覺比較酸軟,不過過了適應期,感覺就如虎添翼,以後應該也不會再回頭了。
