I’m always on the lookout for a good bargain, and I think I’ve found a pretty good one: the Babolat V-Pro Junior for $29.95. It’s available in several colors: Black, Black/Red, White/Black/Red and White/Blue.
The shoe originally cost $49.95, and the updated V-Pro 2 comes in at $54.95. At $29.95, the original V-Pro is a great buy. Let’s break down some of the reasons why.
Whew, we’re only halfway through this week, and there’s a slew of new products that went up in just the past three days. We get so much new stuff, it’s hard to keep track, so here’s a quick look at what’s new so far this week.
Tecnifibre bags are typically built to please. If you want features and high quality materials, check out the new Tour VO2 Max bags. We currently have them in a 12 pack, 9 pack, 6 pack and backpack. What’s not to love about the bags’ sleek black color with patent accents? It hides dirt and doesn’t clash with anything. As always be sure to check out the additional views for different angles and pictures of various pockets. Siobhan has also done a product video on the bags so you can get an even better idea about their size and function. When they’re ready, you’ll see the video button link below the product descriptions.
Good socks are a must if you’re a tennis player. Good socks can help prevent blisters, keep your feet dry and provide comfort. Good socks also last. Drymax socks are some of the best court specific socks. Seamless toes, targeted venting, arch support…the list of features goes on and on. One of the most important aspects of DryMax socks? They fit. We carry four different sizes so you’ll get the best fit for your feet. No one size fits all here. What’s new is that we now have them in black for crews and low-cut styles. With all the black shoe models on the market today, performance black socks are a must.
The Zo line from Gamma keeps on growing! Zo Dart is a new co-poly string designed to please the big hitters. Always looking to improve strings, Gamma is using special additives that help soften up the polyester string but adds six stiffer polyester monofilaments in the core to maintain control. Zo Dart is available in black and white as well as two gauges, 16 and 17. If you try it and love it, there is a multi-set deal of buy 6 and the price drops to $12.46 per set.
Big hitters and string breakers, rejoice! Here’s another option for you. Affordable at $79 for a 660-foot reel, Poly Code is also all about durability. Don’t look for fancy shapes or twists here. This is a traditional feeling poly that offers ultimate control and a crisp feel. Big hitters can swing away. Available only in reel form and in black, Poly Code comes in two gauges 17 (1.25mm) and 16 (1.30mm).
Another great value, Tecnifibre’s synthetic gut reels are now available in black and are only $34.95 for 660 feet of string. Tecnifibre’s synthetic gut also features an abrasion resistant coating for added durability. Find it in 16 and 17 gauges.
The juniors can hit the courts with some Lotto kicks, too. Already available in men’s and women’s sizing, the Ultra III junior has some of the same technologies. Syn-Pulse has been around in Lotto shoes for a while, but it’s still around because it works. Syn-Pulse is a lightweight, responsive cushioning system that’s visible in the heel. New is the ReactiveArch technology. The shoe’s sole is concave and flexes as you run. As it flattens out, you get better stability. As you lift your foot, it returns to the concave shape and offers you better energy return from your stride.
So that’s it, three days into the week and there’s already a lot of new gear to check out. Keep checking the blog page for more updates of what’s new at the warehouse.
