The Gear of the Year Podcast

by Jonas Eriksson

Henrik Wallensten is back for the Gear of the Year podcast. In this episode, we go through 2023 in terms of racquets and strings.

This is not Henrik’s first rodeo. He has been on the podcast numerous times. He writes for Tennisnerd and the Swedish Tennis Magazine, he has been in a bunch of reviews on the channel and he strings for the Swedish Davis Cup team. I have known Henrik for many years, since we started trading racquets in 2012 or something like that.

We tried to go through all the new racquets we had tested in 2023. We also covered some strings and shoes.

Below you can find the timestamps to the episode. Clicking the link will lead you to my review.
