Ha! I bet no one has thrown up a 3rd racquet thread. I just wanted some practice since my disappointing 2nd effort went 5 min longer than the first. 2hrs 15min on that one. damaged string problems and first time poly. this time I dug up an old wilson hyper carbon 5.3 out of the closet. don't remember how i got it but i sure didn't pay for it. perfect test dummy. two piece job took 1hr 20 minutes. stoked about the improvement. dont know if i'll ever hit with this junker, stiff and head heavy.
