    I wonder what the epoxy was. I have a slightly cracked frame that I would like to repair.

    It's not the 5 minute stuff. He cured it with a heat gun and to get it all up in the crack. Pretty industrial grade stuff I think. I hit with it the other night and it played beautifully. What a great racquet.

    Just picked up a wilson pro staff mid in at least 9/10 condition with a case. Pardon my ignorance but anyone know how to tell if its st vincent, chicago, or something else?

    Sorry this was a pretty lazy post - not doing any searches of my own. Its certainly a chicago or st vincent based on what im seeing so far. Just gotta verify the code.

    I like the extra touch with the stencil job marking the sweetspot. Take it out for a hit with the wonderful weather in TX this weekend. If you dont like it then let me know ;)

    Sorry to be lazy again but i cant figure out how to post pics. If anyone is interested in seeing them i can make it happen if you tell me how. Id prefer to have the pics in my post rather than a url somewhere. It's irritating to me when i see those, but maybe thats just me.

    I also scored a head graphite edge today at a different store after the st vincent. I was on such a high after the st vincent i almost didnt shell out the $6 because ive never heard of the hge. But after some searches today looks like i found two gems.

    Ive got a fever and the only cure is more cowbell...

    Just picked up a great Prince CTS Lightning 90 for $2. It's 4 1/4" grip is a little small for me, but this is perfect for my wife!
