    Ummmm.... You realize your are extremely late, right?

    And how is it not a fair test?

    I find this quite interesting simply because it's 100% true. I think that feel is rather you being able to get the sensation of what JUST happened on the stringbed rather than what is happening at contact. The reason that's very important is because it lets you know exactly how well your input correlates to the output. You put in a dink, you get that same amount of dink out. You put in a flat drive, you get a flat drive out. If all of these yield different tactile sensations, then you have much greater confidence going to hit any given one of them. If you instead get a dull thud on both a serve and a volley, then you really don't know how much to put into a given shot. When the stringbed relays exactly what just happened differently for every type of shot you may want to hit, then that's a great quality to have. This is my definition of feel, and on that note, I'm going to make a thread about it. :)

    Probably because he used it twice only...but if I hate a string after an hour and a half then its future redeeming qualities are moot IMO. I don't want to wait an entire set for my strings to start working the way I like them to.

    Between the baseline and netcord.
    That's a pretty thin review.

    The Olsen twins are thin. His review makes them look morbidly obese.
