    There is no such thing as extreme Semi. An extreme Semi would be considered a Western. He uses a Western.

    I'm just saying that it doesn't take much to turn a Semi into a Western. I am a USPTA Certified teaching pro and I have never heard of a Extreme Semi. They certainly don't teach it or recommend it. :confused:

    That is just one guy's opinion. I have never seen any actual documentation on a Extreme Semi. I went to tennisplayer.net read his stuff on it, it is just his opinion really.
