But how was your first experience breaking strings? Crosses or Mains? :)

I broke the first main (from the center). So if counted from the left, it would be the 8th or 9th main depending which way the racquet face was flipped.

LOL that's good. No, I'd rather stay with syn gut. It's less harsh on the arm, and its cheaper and lasts longer. From what i've heard...

Two months? Was it Prince ProBlend or another Kevlar? If not, you're no man yet!





I'm just kidding ;) . Now you'll have to factor in strings to all your tennis expenses! Welcome to the land of always being broke.

Tecnifibre synthetic gut. Yea, but hopefully if I get a stringer, i'll get a 660' reel of the syn. gut from tecnifibre. It felt fine on my rdx 500. Plus, i don't break strings too often...*knocks on wood*

Congratulations, but do not be complacent. If you do not break your next set of string in one month, your man status will be temporarily revoked until you break it again.

hmm, sounds like the misc. section

LOL, I brush up on the ball, but I don't always get the spin lol. first string break felt good though, was wanting to try a lower tension for some more power.

I set a new record for myself today. In just two days, my PSGD cross is fraying! I expect it to be gone within a week. I've never had this problem before, so I guess it was just a weak point in that particular bit of string...

Congrats! :wink:
That means I'm not a man yet, because I've played about 1-2 times each week, maybe 3, for the past month. Then I played maybe 3 times a month before that, I've had my string job for a few months now and I still haven't broken my strings. All I've gotten to is some fraying on my bottom 4 crosses.

I have only broken strings once because I hit primarily flat.

Tsk, tsk, and with Nadal's racquet too. LOL, do you have a topspin ball for rallies?

Zhou
04-17-2008, 07:12 PM
I can pick up low balls with a lot of topspin but I usually hit flat to get myself to net quickly in doubles.

A REAL man breaks full-poly setups less than 2 hrs. Like our very own J011yroger who turned 37 today.

your not a man until your kids throwup in a restaurant. your not a man until you have to dish out twenty grand a year for your kids college. your not a man until you have four cars sitting in your driveway and you have to pay for gas and insurance for all of them. your not a man until you have a 1200 dollar a month house payment. your not a man until you have changed 5000 shi==Y diapers. etc...etc...

I'm about to purchase mine today. The stuff included sounds great, and a 30 day return policy, exactly what I need.

Oh nice. I'm at 3rd doubles. YOu on Varsity? I"m on Frosh/soph

If becoming a man means breaking strings, I would be very happy to be a virgin forever. Would have saved thousands on stringing over the years.

Wow, I guess I'm a man too. As a pregnant man, I should be able to get on Oprah! (Is breaking strings more manly than sporting a beard and mustache?)
