    No, after the match he went to a tree and gave it one good hit and threw it in a ditch. My dad found it for me. Lol

    One of the rackets I already owned, but yes I am extremely fortunate! And about those clamps, they worked wonderfully after I tinkered with them a bit. Had to tighten them. But no big deal. This stringer worked great today and I can't wait to try my other strings shown in the picture! I also got a $100 certificate to klipper USA for a stand or more string. I'm gonna go with the stand!

    Um, I'd have to say no on the stand. (And no on the strings too.) Just use a regular table, or just put it on a chair. Personally, I just sit on the floor and string.

    But then again, there's really nothing I'd buy from Klipper other than the stringer. Some of their grips could be good, if they truly compare to Wilson Pro or Prince Duratac.

    I strung on the floor too, but my knees were starting to hurt (I'm only 19 too lol). Why not their strings? As soon as I have a go with this syn gut I will soo if it really compares to other syn guts. And why not a stand? I think it would be nice. I got a grip from them, so I'll try it once my current grips wear out and I'll let ya know.

    Well I'm pretty sure the racket I got for Xmas is lighter in the head than my current stick. So I'm gonna have to do some tweaking.

    Are they both the same model? Head shape looks so different in the pics...
    I like the pony and stuff in the background LOL... Yours too?
    I had ordered some lead tape a while back and used it to bring up the weight on my PS 6.0 95, matching it to my BLX tour 90s...was all excited about it!
    Reg. the lead tape, I had ordered over the big auction site from a golf shop... Their tape was like have the price of lead tape of any tennis shop I found...maybe worth exploring

    Hey buddy! By any chance, any of these Radical candycanes are L2 (3 1/4)? If yes, are you willing to sell it by any chance? =)

    Thanks for showing us your great collection!

    Thanks for the lead suggestion!

    Yes, they are the same model. I think they look that way because of the difference in string, but if there's a tiny difference in head shape I wouldn't be surprised. The one with silver string has been restrung several times.

    Lol the pony is my nieces. I live in the basement of my parents' house and we keep all sorts of stuff down there. What you DON'T see is my gaming area, which is a little cluttered with Xmas presents at the moment.

    If this thread taught me one thing it's be careful what's in the background!

    I have a duck camp in Holly Bluff, MS, but live in Florida. I occasionally make my way over to Monroe though. I'm more concerned with State fans than y'all.

    Here here! When I'm not on the courts, I'm playing call of duty, halo, or borderlands.

    My son and I love to play the Silent Hill, Darksiders, Resident Evil and the Force Unleashed series and are currently playing Borderlands, Max Payne 3 and Castlevania.

    Ah, good man you are! I'm very excited for Castlevania 2.

    And Resident Evil is just not what it used to be. It's a shame that they abandoned the formula that MADE the franchise...

    You know, surviving the horror. Not bullets and guns falling out of the sky and blast your way through the horror. :-?

    I agree about Resident Evil. First three I could barely play alone at night. Silent Hill has made some missteps but they seem to try and keep the original spirit and intent which was you're an every man in a bad situation. No combat training, military expertise, etc.

    Castlevania has been awesome so far. I think we're nearing the end and after seeing the preview I'm ready for a midnight release.

    Kind of worried about this Devil May Cry reboot though. I'm old. Don't like change! Hey you kids...!

    Yes but do you carry your lightsaber, umbrella and toilet plunger in the reverse Shien grip?

    I do.
