The big splash for new products this week comes from adidas with a slew of new shoes and apparel. If you love, bright colors, adidas does bright colors. Check out the full range of color on the men’s and women’s adidas pages. But adidas is splashed across our home page as seen above. Here’s a chance to look at what else is new this week.
The popularity of black strings continues to grow. Kirschbaum’s Spiky Shark now also comes in black. If you didn’t know, Kirschbaum prestretches its poly strings, helping maintain tension for longer. Big hitters who love to rip the ball with spin can take full advantage of the bite this eight-edged string offers. It comes in both 16 and 17 gauge sets and 16 and 17 gauge 660-foot reels.
Luxilon fans who want to try some of the newest strings in the line should check out the latest Luxilon trial pack. In the Rising Star Trial Pack, you’ll get a single set each of Savage Black 16, Savage Lime 16, Adrenaline 16L and Adrenaline Rough 16L. That’s four sets of string for $32. Bought separately the string sets would set you back $45.80. This is a nice way to save some dough and try a variety of new strings.
When it rains, it pours, but this time that’s a good thing. Gamma, too, has some new strings. Gamma is offering two new prepackaged hybrid sets. Gamma Zo Verve/TNT2 is a great combination of control, spin and playability. Zo Verve is a co-poly that will offer plenty of spin and control, while TNT2 provides a softer response and feel to balance the hybrid. The other is called Gamma Zo Dart 16/XP 17 Hybrid. This combo will let you have plenty of spin on big shots and plenty of touch when needed. All court players should take a look at this one.
adidas isn’t the only brand out with new apparel groups. Tail and Quiksilver have some new apparel, too. First up, the Tail Hard Court Group is summer ready with bright colors and summer whites to keep you cool. Lime makes another appearance, under the name Electric Green in the Tail Hard Court Group. A great feature of Tail’s skorts are the built-in ball pockets on the inner shorts. Not many brands offer this feature.
Quiksilver has a Fall Group that’s full of great items for training on or off the court. This surf brand brings its vibe into tennis/training gear. This is best showcased in the Extension Short, a great mix of board short and tennis short. There are pocket and mesh inner legs for storage and ventilation, but it has a four-way stretch board short material and board short waistband.
Last up this week is the Australian Open 2012 Final DVD featuring Djokovic and Nadal. What a perfect way to rev up the excitement level for Wimbledon! Not that your excitement level isn’t already high for the upcoming grass Slam, but this 2012 final from Down Under is an epic battle of five sets.
That’s it for now. Hope you’re having a great tennis weekend!
