    More TW Gift Card scratch. Have a few cards now, which makes me very dangerous.

    A can of tennis balls... (for real) Although I took advantage of TW's free shipping promo and got me a bunch of replacement grips for the upcoming season on my own.

    The highest gift card couldn't get you 20 sets of premium strings especially if a couple sets are natural gut :).

    I gave myself some gift cards for xmas and waiting to use them on new gear coming in January. I love how tennis is post Xmas for the new stuff.

    I got 2 new flexpoint Instincts after looking for about 2 years. I am so happy I can stop wasting money on trying other racquets.

    It's really lightweight and you can't even really feel it. I can't stand wearing a cap while playing tennis. Makes my tennis a lot worse... Idk why.

    I agree, but I look hideous in a visor...

    And if I am REALLY upset I can throw my hat and save a racket... Visors wouldn't work on windy days lol.

    I like em. I usually don't really have hair when I play tennis either, so I think that makes it look a bit better lol

    Got my son this thing, you put water in it and it has a band with a ball on the end of it, so you hit it and the ball comes back. Funny thing is I tried it, first hit the ball went and didn't come back! Broke first shot.

    He also got ankle weights and a WILSON 75 ball holder.

    I got the anniversary Prestige and racquet bag. Haven't set it up yet but I'm also getting a membership to a local fitness and tennis club. Very excited about that! I might be buying myself some CC Feather II's when they're released next month as well.
