    Sup,

    You don't have to convince me I'm just waiting until 2012 so the grease is 100 years old.

    And the scout is out of the shop and sitting in my garage. I forgot how fun it is too drive around in a vehicle sitting 4 foot off the ground. I drove right by my house on my way home because everything looked different.

    Just lemme know what time you are going to be around here. But Ill be home anyway cleaning the truck up and putting the dash and everything back in and moving my lawnmowers to make room for another car in the garage

    I used to only hybrid, but recently, since Legg Mason, I have been using alot of full Lux setups in my frames. The day we played in Wakefield, I started out with 15g kevlar and Big Ace crosses:shock:

    I think the lowest I have gone is mid 50's. I typically do 58 lbs, but if I had extra BG to fool around with, 35 lbs might be a TON of fun.

    All this tension talk is making me tense. So I'll keep drinking away, which I've enjoyed heavily the last three or four months. Brain cells can't even compute tennis matches or racquet talk. I'm ready to lose to zapvor now. Excellent!

    Jrs,

    Trying a lower tension is fun. Just watch out for the cons. There is a thread on tw about testing low tension.

    Hw,

    I'll call you. Scout sounds like fun.

    Now back to vodka.

    Hollywood,

    Flipping through stations and saw the wbna finals.

    Do you think a top 20 nationally ranked men's basketball team could take either of the finalists?

    I'm talking lower tension. Not super low. Prob around 52lbs.

    BTW- you asked me if I'm looking for a stringer. What is it and what's the price?

    The 360 should be around for at least 5 more years as MS just released a updated version of the 360 with slimmer case and bigger hard drive. The also just released Kinect for the 360 (Think Wii motion control without having to hold anything).

    Strikepiece,

    Ive never used BG at that low, but what I use now is Biphase at 52 and black code at 55. I seem to get more spin out of the code and decent pop. I dont hit as many short balls. I think tis worth a shot doign that.

    I think any D-1 mens basketball program could destroy whatever team wins this WNBA championship.

    If you are talking top 20 national high school team. The would also destroy these teams.

    Definitely good times hitting last week man. Equally good beers afterwards! I can also attest to the perils of adidas footwear... that match validated my choice to stay with Nike, if anything b/c I don't need shoes w/ iffy traction to fall flat on my ass! Sorry we never made it out to Neds later than night, my fellow trainees and I figured that stumbling 50 feet to the elevator was a better option than driving a mile.

    Speaking of driving... I started my new gig out in Linthicum, MD so if any Bmore, Columbia, Ellicott City folks want to get out and hit after work let me know!

    Thanks H-Dub. I'll have to give it a shot when I get a chance to get it restrung.

    Right now I'm doing Big ace at about 56 or 57 - it feels great for about 2-3 weeks then it just seems to loose tension and play dead/stiff.

    Can't do it tomorrow either, gotta get the car inspected after work... We'll get something worked out for subsequent weeks - prefer early evenings so I suppose that'll be Mondays or Wednesdays.

    Hellloooooo TWMAC.
    Long time no see, I am now in recovery to return to the game of tennis after I manage to heal. If anyone remembers I was having hand pain for some unknown reason, eventually after x-rays and mri's we found somethin or other in my hand that needed to be cut out.

    I had surgery yesterday to remove said whatever it was and after 72 hour biopsy I will know what it was! My hand is now bandaged up and I am on the road to recovery to make a glorious return to tennis!

    Hope some TWMAC'ers will be around in several weeks from now because I will be looking for people to play some tennis with :) It's been agony being unable to play and getting such a bizarre atypical injury. But hopefully my hand will be good as new after sufficient healing time and I can return to tennis better than ever :)

    Hope you feel better dude... I bet $100 bucks that the biopsy results reveal the thing in your hand is a combination of shampoo and hot dogs.

    I'm usually done between 4/4:30 so anytime right afterwards is good by me. Just need to make sure I pack the tennis gear in the morning. Whats your preference on time
