    *cough* my gaming area is a lot better than all of yours *cough* And don't comment on the state of the room, I'm in the process of cleaning it.

    And in an attempt to right the thread, here's my newly acquired Speed prototype PJ.

    Game is an absolute classic. Head to the top floor (3rd) in the elevator and doors are locked, get back in the elevator and the 4th floor appears as a button. Enter the hell hospital. Not sure whether I prefer the first or 2nd game though. Both of them are highly enjoyable.

    On the subject on tennis gear, I received the anniversary Prestige and bag from Santa! Will post my own picture when I get around to it :)

    I haven't played any of the games that anybody has mentioned.... I'm 14 and don't have any consoles... :)

    When I'm not on the courts I'm either here, or in the gym.

    I thought my gaming area was gonna come out on top but I defer to you.

    That's the first image of the new Speed that has piqued my interest. Not sure about the shared holes though especially now that all the manufacturers are touting less friction in the grommets. Or is it a shared grommet with two openings like some of the Prince Triple Threat racquets?

    Failed Babolat experiment on the left and my kid's racquet on the right. On a side note while I prefer leather, that Tourna Replacement grip is the best synthetic grip I've ever felt.

    And now I want to know what kind of string you have... Because you have a fair amount of string.
    And tell me about that color trophy with an old guy on it... lol

    They are not.

    These reels have Solinco Tour Bite, an inexpensive co-poly from France, Polyfibre Black Venom Rough, Pro Supex Titan for synthetic gut jobs (mainly hybrids), some Lux Adrenaline and Yonex Poly Tour Pro.

    The packages in the square box have half-sets of FXPs for hybrids, Gamma Livewire and Pro Supex Maxim Touch, Kirschbaum Pro Line X, Signum Pro Hyperion, Pacific X-Force and some Luxilons.

    The cut out grey/orange set is meant for a hybrid stringjob for one of my KBlades - it's half set of sppp for mains and half set of lux fluoro for crosses.
    (thin gauge).

    It's decent, sometimes it feels a bit dull, but seriously no complaints for what it is meant to be doing. I remember combining it with Tour Bite on one of my Dunlop 200 Tours to get some extra pop.

    I have also strung some sticks for friends and a few customers.

    Ha, ha, believe it or not I deliberately framed the picture like that (it is not cropped). They are indeed leaning on the wall, I have always been searching for a nice standalone bar/case or something for the many stick s I have.

    There are some MPs that I have not included there.

    This Prestige is a birthday gift.
    Underneath that white wilson pro overgrip there's a delicious black fairway (!).
