    Shoulder feels fine right now and in fact has felt pretty good for a several days now, but I haven't tested it at all. The last few days I've gotten those tennis texts from different buddies to play and I came close to cracking but didn't. I may play this weekend.

    The pain was a general discomfort I felt especially when serving or when my racquet was above my shoulder. I could still hit serves at about 80, 90 percent -- but that little something just forced me to hold back. Then the shoulder was very sore (a pretty constant dull pain) for two, three days after my last hit before finally dissipating. So, it's been 8 or 9 days now since hitting and I feel good, but I'm just a little nervous. If the pain returns when I hit again, I know I'll have to see an ortho. From what I've read, I think it might be a rotator cuff or 'shoulder impingement' issue; hopeful it was just too much playing that needed a good rest, but that's just the hope.

    Interesting about the Youtek irritating your shoulder/wrist -- more so than other sticks? Which Youtek were you hitting?

    Initially when I return to hitting I plan on mostly wielding the flexiest of my frames, the BC20, which was the stick my shoulder seemed to be feeling the best with in the days before taking the layoff.

    I wasn't that into it but it was a very brief hit. Knew immediately that the Prestige was so much nicer for me personally - could drive the ball a lot better, whereas the Rad floated the ball a bit more. For me, my favorite Radical is still the Microgel MP version. I've always loved that little frame, had very nice feel and could destroy some serves.

    Sounds like muscle fatigue from too much time on the courts and maybe not enough stretching/exercising. You should be good to go. If there's a tear, you'll know it. My tendon separated from the bone- complete tear. If your movement isn't impeded, then it's likely fatigue of the muscle and/or tendons due to improper warm-up and/or over usage. Watch your rotator!

    I demo'd the Yt PresMid and Mid+ and the IG PresMid+... all three left me with wrist/shoulder soreness. Especially on serve and those abrupt motions on return.

    That's interesting. I mean, the one thing that is in the back of my mind: I've been talking about struggling to get the Prestige going on serve especially, feeling that the frame is just about perfect for me on groundies but I just struggled to get the thing going on serve. I also just traded my Prestige for another grip size and am wondering if a different balance might provide me some better karma on that front. (plus the one I'm getting has a NatGut/NVy setup which I feel could be great for the shoulder). But like I said, I'm thinking of concentrating on the BC20 initially until I feel like the shoulder is out of the woods.

    Also, I was going to ask you guys: any particular stretches or exercises really work for you regarding the shoulder? What kind of stuff are you doing in PT, Klem? I think I need to get some of those stretch bands for some resistance work to build up that back side of the shoulder; it was certainly a constant on the practice courts at IW.

    ^ Yes. Stretch bands are a must. I have like 3 sets lying around the house somewhere.

    At the rehab center, we do a lot of resistance exercises with bands, about a dozen. From the 'football toss' motion in varying degrees...to the over the shoulder pull. Aerobic (light intensity) exercises with 1lb. bar bells. A ton of stretches, involving 'holds' on the floor and upright against a wall. Some resistance machines.

    I'm outpatient once a month, on account of my quick recovery. Doc says due to my age and physical conditioning, I was a good candidate for an accelerated healing process.

    When you buy the resistance bands.. there is usually an exercise chart that comes with them and a website you can visit for more exercises. I'll find my charts and post the website on there.

    Thanks Klem. As far as resistance goes, they have those pulleys at the gym. I wonder if doing some work on those at very light weight would be resistant-band-like. Like pulling across the front of your body (essentially a backhand motion), things like that.

    ^ Yeah, the cable-cross over. That'll work, with minimal weight 20-30lbs.

    Get some bands. The chart that comes with them is 'gold'.

    ----------

    Tension/injury of the shoulder is usually related to serving. Keep your toss shorter and out in front. Keep your muscles loose... shoulders/legs. On your kicker, choke the handle a little higher and use an eastern/extreme eastern grip with the toss directly above your head and make sure your making contact level with your head.

    My wife is trying to become a certified teacher, as a side job teaching kids. Taking some lessons from a guy who's cleaning up her technique and showing her how to teach. She's now in the process of trying to get her papers from over seas which states she was a competing junior. Every saturday morning I'm out watching them practice and play. Don't trust french guys around my wife. ;)

    Haha. Good tips on the serving. And will try to get some of those bands tomorrow or this weekend. Any particular brand of type of band preferred, or are they all the same?

    Just don't get any of the 'heavy' 40-50lbs. resistance. Stay light. 10 or 20lbs. You want to stretch the muscles.. not work them. Concentrate on your breathing too. When you exhale, your muscles tend to relax involuntarily. Stretch-breathe-relax-exhale.

    I think it's a good move going back to the bc20. We all want power-spin etc.... But consistency will make you better. And if the racquet is comfortable and easy on your body.. that just means you can play more tennis!!!

    If you're serving under 100mph.. but are getting them in 90% of the time... it's better than serving 110mph and getting them in 50% of the time. Same for groundstrokes.

    Reading through the NTRP rating system of the USTA, nowhere does it say... 'a 6.0 must have 120mph serve and forehands of 90mph.' It's all about consistency with a mix of escalating pace as you move through the ranks.

    Gads,

    The present GSOAT is Pacific Classic 16/SP Tornado 17 @ 60/56. This may just possibly be the best setup that I have played with. Plenty of pop but very controllable with unbelievable comfort and pocketing. Plus you get that nice heavy "thwack" with every shot.

    The only point I'm concerned on is the price. Ordering half sets of gut is going to get really pricey really quick. I have a friend who works at a tennis center that may be able to get me a deal and that would help a lot. The only other option that I have is to look for a different main and keep the Tornado in the crosses.

    So here's my question for the fellow "holics"......I need a string that my crosses won't saw through as quickly, but is just as comfortable as gut. In the past I have always hated multis because of the excess string movement and the overwhelming power. It's been too long since I played with any kind of syn. gut for me to remember but it looks like it may be worth a try. Help a brother out.

    There is nothing..I searched.

    The closest thing is X1 biphase. The problem is that it severely drops tension and becomes a trampoline after 10 hours. Gut holds tension better than anything.

    The mistake was buying a reel of tornado..if you can sell that to somebody, you want to buy msv cofocus. It is a slippery poly that will not saw through your gut and will last for a very long time. It is also 7.99.

    If your string jobs last 3-4 weeks then the cofocus/ pacific classic setup will not be any more expensive than restringing poly every week.

    But the setup I am proposing would be under $20 a job.

    I'll just have to see how long the setup lasts. If I can get 2+ weeks it will already be saving me. More than that is a cherry on top.

    I've used tornado for a while, know that I like it and I got the reel cheap. Image very well look at another cross though. I have never hit with an MSVstring that I liked. They all felt cheap and plasticky to me.

    Thanks for all the advice on the shoulder today, Klem. Much appreciated. Small chance of a hit tomorrow, but more likely Saturday or Sunday I'll test myself for the first time.

    Makes sense to me that Tornado would work as a cross with Gut because I recall that string being very, very controlled, in a way that let you really hit out.

    Btw, just watched a vid of Tipsaravic on tennis.com where he supposedly 'talks about his gear,' but in truth he gives a bunch of vague answers. Best part, though, is he ends the video -- after being questioned about racquet and string, tension on day vs. night, and about the tennis balls in Miami -- by saying he didn't want to overthink gear and conditions, etc., and says something to this effect: "To summarize, I don't really care." Just made me laugh.

    Anyway, methinks Juan Monaco will not have a very good day tomorrow.

    More re the touch stuff and APD and how this isn't a great match up...

    It was really noticeable yesterday how my lobs just aren't happening anymore. It's always been one of the few more all court little things I had a certain feel for, keeping players who advance to the net busy as I try to send a cute lob high over their bh side... I don't have a feel for it anymore though.

    The 2 or 3 I attempted didn't get the right up and over and trajectory and they were clinically dispatched. I'm almost certain that my polarized set up has a lot to do with this. Of course though, as we've been discussing, the APD isn't noted in the general touch department... and the 1 dropper I tried predictably dumped short into the net.

    Thankfully I found (and always have done actually) the APD very good for powerful block back volleys and the like.

    Anyhow, the more all court game isn't what I play the frame for, but, yes...

    Strange days for a racaholic...pretty settled on a frame. Still want rdis 100, 200 maybe a 100s...curious about ti80,, rd7, kind of want the new fed frame...but the urge is milder...why go backwards? I look at my k90 sometimes and feel something...
    No, best to stay the course :)

    I hear you, brother. That current Fed 90 is a beautiful frame. Seems like the general consensus amongst the 90 lifers is that the K90 is still the goat.

    It's funny, in this short playing absence I'm less racaholic and more gear-holic, stalking shoes lately even though I'm more than happy with my Res4s (though I could be 3 good playing weeks from wearing through them). The white/blue Vapors that are due out in a few days are just so sweet looking, I may get them for gym use. Those or the Asics Speeds for some elliptical goating and such.

    Its amazing how we all have a slightly different feel for a racket and I think it can all boil down to fed's stick. There is a lot of love for the point and shoot, stiffer hoop of the k90. Personally I love the pro staff 90 and its softer hoop/feel. I think the majority of us would find ourselves in one bracket or the other.

    I've also been looking at shoes again, on court mobility my ability lies in my lateral movement and wingspan, my weakness lies in my forward and back due to my lumbering size and big feet! I'm wearing head radical pro II and they are heavy, much heavier than stated in the tw stats, but they are very stable and comfortable. Ideally id wear them laterally and a pair of vapor tours front to back :)

    FYI, if you like Head shoes (I've worn the Head Mojos in the past, which are nice), you might be interested in the Head Speed Pro II Lite shoes Head just released. Looks like a slightly trimmed-down version of what I think is there flagship shoe, and it looks pretty good. I'm keeping these in the back of my mind as I've got wide feet and it's apparently a nice wide fit.

    Sounds great, thanks, I couldn't get the speeds at the time, tbh they are a little sturdier and heavier than mine, but both are barricade 5's in all but name. A slightly lighter version sounds about right to me.

    Felt the same way about the Speeds when I tried them, just too much. If you end up getting these, let me know how you find them as I'll be curious.

    I've just had a look on tw, they look great, the only downside is they haven't got the pinched mid sole, like the barricades this made me feel on my toes, slightly higher. These new lites look flatter motte courtballistic.....hmmm will have to see if they are available over here.

    The way to think about it is that TW made a list of most spin friendly setups. this is one of the best (gut/cofocus). The reason is because it is a very slick string. What that means is it will not cut into your mains and will slide against them instead. You will get more spin and a longer string life out of your gut this way.



    Hey Ross, what strings did you have in the APD? I get a lot more touch with the RIP. Also, you just have to practice those shots..do you practice them a lot? If not, of course you will miss lobs for a while..it takes a lot of time to dial in touch, but you can have touch with any stick setup if you practice.

    I like the sound of that. Would love this 'hybrid' tennis shoe!:)



    PP,

    Presently getting through my Hexaspin Twist which I have in a few frames as a full job and one with Bab Ny... No, I don't practice them a lot (not much playing/practice time last 3 weeks) - know I should. From past experience though, I do find certain frames (especially Prestiges and 6.1s) instantly deliver in this respect for me.

    Yes of course the prestige is easier for lobs/touch because it is low powered. But if you spend the time you will get it on your APD AND have massive power. That is why I love these Babs..you can hit any shot in the book with practice and they are forgiving under heavy fire.

    It is harder to have touch with full poly though..it will take a lot of practice.


    Really loving my PD+..I have grown so fast with this thing. I believe I have found my favorite spec setup - 325 grams, SW (getting measured - guessing 328ish), 3.5 pts HL..27.5 length.

    As for shoes, I am planning on getting the Asics Solutions. I love the look, and the reviews are incredible.light fast shoes are the best.

    Forgot to add this little gear wildcard.

    Seriously considering getting some oakley shades - polarized iridium black lense for playing in the summer. I am a blond/blue eyes guy and the sun can be brutal. I can also wear them when I cycle.

    But yeah..have any of you guys gotten Tipsy with it? I know Bad Call uses Bolles and they are pretty sweet.

    I sometimes have an issue with the curve of the sunglasses lens and picking up the flight of the ball by a millisecond.

    However, I've had to wear shades the last week or so because of the pollen and they've worked well. I wear Smith's but the Iridium Oakley would work well-I used to race bicycles and that was the go to set up.


    Pretty pumped around here today, my son got in to Harvard :)

    wow..damn from USC to Harvard..thats amazing...congrats. I am a lowly FSU grad..haha.

    the pollen is brutal..for me, serving into the sun is just crushingly bad some days here..I also mountainbike and cycle so I feel the Flak Jackets are a good investment.

    Funny how you can buy more cool stuff when you stop buying frames every month ;)

    I just had to stock up on grommet sets, this long term racquet ownership isn't all it's cracked up to be.....lol

    Tour bite trashes grommets but at least it's easy to replace them in the Tec.
    Mine were smoked after six months.

    Trying to sort out my summer time tension with the temps in the mid 80's. I've used 54/52 all winter and am going with 56/53 and see how that goes.
    I used some worn out TB yesterday and it kept flying long.

    I need to pick up grommets as well. Must remind myself to do that as soon as money becomes available again.

    I was thinking back to polys that I have used previously as possible crosses for my gut to prolong the lifespan. This is the list that I came up with:

    SP Poly Plasma Pure
    Kirsch PLII
    Tecni Pro Red Code

    The first two I don't think would be an issue at all. I remember PRC being a stiffer string but I think that using it with gut would improve the feel. I actually think that it may be in the same stiffness range as Tornado.

    PP...thanks for the input. Right now I'm not wanting to gamble on something that is completely untested because I want to officially be done with gear and really focus on technique. Looking forward to the summer tournament season means I really have to sharpen my game if I want to be competitive.

    I've also decided that instead of ordering the half sets of gut, I'm going to order the full set since I can get it in 16g. I'l pretty much always be stringing two frames at a time so no need to worry about that half set going bad.

    In that stick..I'd go around 56#s..prestretch the string first. If you prestretch, it holds tension real well and will drop about 7 pounds until breakage.

    PED,

    Huge congratulations, H. What a special day. :cool:

    Yes, I'll need to restock on some for my APDs. Funny, being a racketaholic for so long, this isn't something I'm used to - LOL!


    All,

    Talking of shoes (as some have been recently), is it just me or anyone else not a fan of the Propulse 3s? With that shiney green plastic looking wrap around the foot design feature, I always think it's like a teenage mutant ninja turtle is attached to your foot!:grin:

    Propulses are pretty bad looking. Didn't mind the originals but they keep looking more and more like weird space shoes. The red ones were just awful, I thought. But then again, there are a lot of ugly tennis shoes out there and unfortunately, it's the ugly ones that always end up fitting my foot well. The best looking ones like Nike and Adidas usually never work - the current Vapors being the lone exception. Wilson shoes often feel great on my wide feet, but they never look good and their current line is laughable.


    PED: CONGRATS, PROUD PAPA! Harvard. That's friggin incredible.

    Thanks, we're all excited around here the last few days :)

    Since you and Ross has both insulted my Propulse 3's.....lol

    I'm diggin' them actually. I've been hard court Cage/Ballistec user for the last 4 years and was surprised to move to these but they are excellent. Great traction and really nice padding for banging around on HC.

    The green is a bit more muted in person and I slapped in some white laces to make the white on the show POP!! The red ones were a bit too much for me but black/green is $$

    I remember why I don't play social tennis......yet I did today. I always get paired with the weak one in the quartet so you do a lot of running, there's no intensity, lollipop tennis, had the token women at the start, still won tho ha, then i had a newcomer, lost the tiebreaker, then someone who is maybe a 3.0 at best, won, then an old guy, lost tie break....knackered !! So much running to cover, getting battered at the net, no focus cos everyone is messing about, quite a few jokers at club.

    Never again, its a good laugh I suppose but I feel like I've done ten rounds with tyson.

    On the topic of shoes I thought I'd wear my vapors, the AO yellow version, whilst really slipper-like and comfortable and my feet felt fast, I had problems serving (there's something about sturdy shoes that makes me serve well ??).

    In agreement with the consensus. Congrats PED!!

    Question is now, are they offering any partial scholarships or financial aid?

    My youngest brother had been accepted by Harvard as well but decided to go to the Naval Academy instead.

    The fact that the tuition was paid and that he would have a job after graduation made the decision easier. Having a $200,000+ loan in front of you after graduation is not an ideal situation.

    But, it's Harvard. If he's the ambitious, self-motivated type, no problems. I have a friend who dropped out Berkley School of Music, attained a 2 year degree at a local community college in computer programming and now makes a six+ figure salary running/establishing websites for various local government agencies as small business owner.

    Lucky for me, his people run my mutual fund, otherwise, I'd be lost and wouldn't have enough time to screw around on internet forums. ;)

    Anyway, some big decisions coming up for the family. Where does he want to go?

    Thanks my man!

    Not sure how much it will end up costing yet. You are right it's a big question: weighing up scholarships from great schools vs going to Harvard. Not sure what the "correct" answer is yet.

    He's gotten attractive offers from several other top 20 schools so we've got alot of thinking to do. TBH, I still can't wrap my brain around the fact that he got in......

    You are also right about motivation vs education. It's nice to have both but some of my largest clients have degrees from places with no "pedigree" but hard work and desire make all the difference in the real world I think.

    With interest rates so low nowadays and a fall in property values, the American market is back!!!

    It will be a great time for investing/entrepreneurship. Just a matter of personality, can you handle stress?

    Harvard is a pretty penny and I've noticed most of their scholarships go to international students, in order to build the 'brain drain' that America has suffered in the past 20years or so.

    For me personally, it's easy. If a great school like USC or Duke is offering ANY partial scholarships or grants/aid, he has to take it. A Harvard degree doesn't get you as far as it used to. Times have changed, especially in the business world. It's the risk takers that profit, the ones who can handle the stress.

    You can take the money that you would've have spent at Harvard and put towards a condo in the neighboring area of his University. Rent it out. When he graduates he'll have collateral for his future and a degree, instead of just debt.

    Yes, but if his son goes to Harvard, then PED can have the honor of saying, 'My son is at Harvard,' and that's pure goat.

    PED, you have achieved the parenting equivalent of a slam win. You deserve some crimson and black 2k11 ids. :)

    Oh my,

    That's awesome PED. Congratulations for that amazing feat. I believe you pay in Harvard according to parents and assets earnings so it's a pretty good deal.
