    This is going out ala 'snail mail' to every one of my co-workers. Better than 'Saul Good' attorney at law.

    Thank you sir, I will do you proud with it, boldly journeying in the direction of the net to ambush serve returns before they bounce!

    I have 2 K90s if you are interested. one 3/8 and the other 1/2. The half one barely has a scratch on it and the other one is about a 7.5 or so. I am not using them and if you want it they are yours.

    Actually that gold ring looks like Pete's "O"-dampener; maybe Gollum does play tennis after all...... :)

    I am getting better with the prestige, might string it next time at 38#.

    The only thing that really plagues me is hitting a forehand and then moving to a conti grip to slice or volley, I get kind of stuck because it is a bit further away and end up with a kind of weak eastern FH grip.

    Nothing that can't be cured by sacking up and having Wilson pallets put on.

    is it that drastic a difference? I think with time you'll get used to it. just practice it a bit during training/drills.

    i use a prince and a wilson, very different pallet shapes but don't come across this problem. I started playing tennis on prince though and i'm used to squash racquets (small grips, always continental) so maybe that's a factor.

    If I used it exclusively for two weeks it wouldn't be an issue at all, but I use the wilsons 85% of the time.

    Given your many years with Wilson, I might suggest the cash spent for Wilson pallets to be fitted to your Prestiges would be well worth it. After all, it is the only part of the frame we actually touch, and VERY small differences in racquet head angle=BIG changes in the ball's trajectory. :) :) BHBH

    I dream of J011y. But he doesn't wear a blonde wig or pink belly dancer outfit. Or is married to a handsome Air Force Kernel.

    I can't stand that oval HEAD grip shape, but HEAD's 82S pallets from the Speed line swap right in and are very Wilson like....but even better imo.

    ****'s swap in pallets for HEAD are great too.

    J011y hath touched the Face of God.

    Long Island's truest warrior of the Basalt Kingdom.

    ...enemies envy me
    So cold when I flow
    eliminatin' easily...

    Fall to their knees
    they plead
    for the right to breathe
    While beggin' me to keep the peace...

    We will never, never, ever, ever forget J011y.

    Just spoke to J011y. And my heart breaks like Molly Ringwald's purple flavored thighs that I missed the epic Miami trip.

    To anyone in Florida that has the opportunity to meet J011ay I hope that you will GOATify and praise the Suffolk Kevlar Eagle.

    Epic. Living hero amongst us. Basalt ALU shattered dreams of the 2012 Fedace prophecy.

    WTH? How can Jolly be banned from here? I've not seen anything outrageous or offensive. He is by far the most entertaining poster.

    Does anyone know if anyone has been banned and later rescinded?

    This is a travesty.

    No doubt the wound was conceived and administered by fan-boys in general pro discussion. A petition has begun.

    I will burn basalt candles with kevlar wicks on top of a black karaphite pyre, till the day he is he resurrected to 'poast' status.

    I exchanged emails with Jolly's travel agent and he expressed concern about the weariness he is feeling due to his recent travels, the exhibition he did with Federer in Antartica to raise funds for "Save the Penguins", and his ban from Tennis Talk but reassured me the recent bout of warm weather has begun to reverse his SAD and he will be participating in FDC this Sunday.

    Dali

    In one place - at the same time - battling hi level 5.5 Date Krum open level tennis with the Filipino Davis Cup squad of Queens - is truly monumental.

    I haven't fuchen hit in like 2 months.

    I'm gonna get destroyed.

    Epic.
