I broke my strings for the first time. it was in my match today.
Well done. Yes, you are now a man.
welcome to the string breakers club
LOL, I had them since like February. I wonder if I can get a stringing machine now....
lol you are a man..thats funny
do it..its one of the best decisions ive made
lol.. I thought you turned 21 or of drinking age.
But how was your first experience breaking strings? Crosses or Mains?
So we can stop calling you Boysewerz now?
Congrats. Coming of age.
You going all poly now?;-)
What machine do you use?
My eyes are on the ATS super stringer
I broke the first main (from the center). So if counted from the left, it would be the 8th or 9th main depending which way the racquet face was flipped.
LOL that's good. No, I'd rather stay with syn gut. It's less harsh on the arm, and its cheaper and lasts longer. From what i've heard...
Two months? Was it Prince ProBlend or another Kevlar? If not, you're no man yet!
I'm just kidding . Now you'll have to factor in strings to all your tennis expenses! Welcome to the land of always being broke.
I have a dropweight one...its the Gamma Progression II 602 FC off of TW great machine for me and works great.
Tecnifibre synthetic gut. Yea, but hopefully if I get a stringer, i'll get a 660' reel of the syn. gut from tecnifibre. It felt fine on my rdx 500. Plus, i don't break strings too often...*knocks on wood*
picture or it didn't happen!!
jk... congrats i went pretty crazy trying to break my strings for the first time.. I wacked balls all over the place and it still took me forever
Congratulations, but do not be complacent. If you do not break your next set of string in one month, your man status will be temporarily revoked until you break it again.
hmm, sounds like the misc. section
LOL, I brush up on the ball, but I don't always get the spin lol. first string break felt good though, was wanting to try a lower tension for some more power.
I set a new record for myself today. In just two days, my PSGD cross is fraying! I expect it to be gone within a week. I've never had this problem before, so I guess it was just a weak point in that particular bit of string...
nice good luck in your careers guys
That means I'm not a man yet, because I've played about 1-2 times each week, maybe 3, for the past month. Then I played maybe 3 times a month before that, I've had my string job for a few months now and I still haven't broken my strings. All I've gotten to is some fraying on my bottom 4 crosses.
i am only now fealing manly as my strings are braking in about a week
LOL, this thread, is the official man thread.
I'm not a man yet. :cry:
youre not a tough man until you break polyester in less than a month. especially less than a week
fortunately, i dont consider myself tough
I see, many non men.
I have only broken strings once because I hit primarily flat.
Tsk, tsk, and with Nadal's racquet too. LOL, do you have a topspin ball for rallies?
I can pick up low balls with a lot of topspin but I usually hit flat to get myself to net quickly in doubles.
A REAL man breaks full-poly setups less than 2 hrs. Like our very own J011yroger who turned 37 today.
i popped some strings today also. luckily it wasnt mine, it was a demo =D
I've broken strings two times, so I'm twice the man you are, Mansewerz
congrats... your balls have finally dropped!
Man... i break strings 1-2 times a week... i must be the manliest man, of all the men in this manly world.
in the future, use protection ;-)
I see. What doubles spot do you have?
By the way, I thought Jo11y was 25
Buy that ATS manswerz.
I love mine.
I play 1 dubs for my high school.
your not a man until your kids throwup in a restaurant. your not a man until you have to dish out twenty grand a year for your kids college. your not a man until you have four cars sitting in your driveway and you have to pay for gas and insurance for all of them. your not a man until you have a 1200 dollar a month house payment. your not a man until you have changed 5000 shi==Y diapers. etc...etc...
Ouch! sounds so painful....how do you find the funds for tennis?
How do you have 1100 posts and not be a man yet?????
Don't women break strings ?
I'm about to purchase mine today. The stuff included sounds great, and a 30 day return policy, exactly what I need.
Oh nice. I'm at 3rd doubles. YOu on Varsity? I"m on Frosh/soph
If becoming a man means breaking strings, I would be very happy to be a virgin forever. Would have saved thousands on stringing over the years.
Wow, I guess I'm a man too. As a pregnant man, I should be able to get on Oprah! (Is breaking strings more manly than sporting a beard and mustache?)
