Seeing as Luxilon started as a company producing textiles that were used in Bra straps (http://www.tennis.com/articles/templates/gear.aspx?articleid=3035&zoneid=24) - I find this story to be kind of funny.

Got home today, excited to get my deliver of some Lux Alu Power and Alu rough strings. Come in and see a package that wasn't mine with the letters "VS" on the package. However, my strings are no where to be seen.

Figured out that it UPS probably delivered a nieghbor's stuf to me and my string to my nieghbor. So I go over and give them the package.

Since I'm a tennis geek, I'm thinking "VS" in terms of Babolat gut.... turns out VS stands for Victoria' Secret - LOL! Talk about an awkward delivery... :oops:

So there you go from Luxlion bra textiles to trading underwear for string. LOL!

Well, it was one of their products. Man, what a tennis nut will do to get his strings.

Must have been very skimpy undergarments if they were the same size as packages of strings.

Meh, packages were roughly the same size. I order several packs of string.

From textiles to tennis strings isn't that big a step. See the article in the RSA magazine.

Did you wink at your neighbor and ask her to try it on for you?

Link? I did note that Luxilon makes textiles for clothing.

Did you wink at your neighbor and ask her to try it on for you?

No,

1. I'm married
2. I'd prefer my Lux string to being locked up for harrasment.
3. Her husband answered the door and he could break me in half with his pinky.

Perhaps it was his package

I meant RSI. As you can see it's just like spinning yarn:
