    It's real easy to ruin a poly shirt. I've left a couple of poly shirts in the dryer to long and got wrinkles in it that will not come out even with an iron.

    I find the best way to treat all of my workout stuff (poly shirts, poly shorts) is to dry them on a drying rack. Also helps to wash them with Win or Penguin Sports wash.

    i really love my old wooden rackets, but i would never play a serious match with them. same goes for cotton shirts. they are a thing of the past.

    never is a strong word, let´s say i haven´t played in one for at least ten years.
    i like cotton shirts but for sports i prefer poly. that said, there is a vast difference in quality, and it´s not always the most expensive ones that are the best.

    Does anyone hang the shirts in the sun anymore?
    Doesn't the sun also kill any odor?
    I've got some adidas and nike poly shirts and never had odor problem....

    Found some puma t shirts (on sale, to boot) that are a 65 poly/35 cotton blend that feel very comfortable. Just need to get them out in this 100 degree heat to see how they perform.

    As a lifetime member of club Chopin I support this decision and will dispose of all my current poly shirts immediately.
