    Pulled out my old Slazenger Phantom 105, circa 1990, from "the closet where I hope my wife does't look", put it in my bag and switched to it in my regular Thur. doubles match after being down 0-2 and (with my partner's help!) ran off six straight games. I had been playing with 12+ oz racquets so the Slazenger at 11 7/8 oz was comfortable. Plus, the tension had dropped in the syn gut strings to what has to be in the 35-40 range (the "string it low" group may be on to something). All in all, it was fun and I'm planning to try it in my league match tomorrow.
