    It's almost complete too. Make your racket happy and straighten your strings. They're all frowny. :)

    Better fix that before I play, don't want to mess up with some frowny-face strings. :wink:

    Damn good, or maybe that's just me;) Haha just joking, I like it, the crosses soften up the red code nicely.

    Ciao tarie,

    ''Messy look'', I feel was a compliment ... a reference to the different colored SPPP, and more likely the RED clay stains on the grip.

    Most Americans do not see red clay enough, especially this time of year, so that's kind of impressive and cool to us. At least to me. Last time I came back from playing in Europe, I kept the shoes a month or two longer than normal.

    Further, those are really great sticks in that picture. Dunlop has made it back from some darker times, which is nice.

    Sidenote: the pattern on your bedspread/duvet seems so Italian or possibly French/continental looking. The equivalent of a Scot with a tartan/plaid?
    Tantamount to a South Asian with a paisley or a South Indian with a Madras plaid? A Caribbean with a kokopelli guy? Pat Cash with the chessboard pattern?

    Anyway, cool man, take care.

    Yeah I felt it was a compliment but I didn't know the meaning!:)
    Anyway,clay courts are beautiful but during winter with rain we don't play so much,especially in Rome as we do not have many indoor courts(in northern italy they have a lot).
    Don't you have in US green clay courts?
    And yes,those Dunlop are really good stick!

    ciao!:)

    Yeah, we have the gray/green clay mostly, but a few places have a brick red clay too.

    Actually, they make a Har-Tru that is reddish now, too. I like it a lot. A friend of a friend has it at his house. Says it is easier to maintain that actual European red clay. One day:) ... when I retire.....

    nice ryan.

    I think it would look better, though, if they were black and gold. The red and blue reminds me too much of those dreaded Kansas Jayhawks :)

    Just kidding. It really does look cool.

    That doesn't look like it would be very fun to string. I spent about 10 min. trying to figure out how it was even possible!
