    it is def a singles frame. you can serve big, but there are better servers. you can volley solidly, but there are other more natural volleyers. but for anything off the ground... the spin, control and precision is INSANE!

    This may be a result of too much time spent on court with Auzzie. If you start wearing the same UVA shirt repeatedly and your sweat glands go on overdrive... you may be a tennis demo zombie.

    Regardless, I'm glad a pencil was used. Please get a vaccine.

    i was going to ask several members of twmac to speak at my funeral in case my swiss cheese of the mouth disease proves fatal... but on second thought, i reconsider! i'd rather have crickets chirp! :p

    p.s. - my doctor is a whacko. i NEVER go to the doctor, so if i show up, something is wrong. dr. asks what is wrong, and i say... take a look inside my mouth and i'll show you. dr. takes a look and says there isn't anything wrong!
    i'm like, do you see the cheese? do you see the blisters? and dr. says.. i see some white stuff and some other stuff but i wouldn't call them blisters.
    WTF! give me some dang pillz pal!
    looking for the dr phone number on internet and all i found are bad reviews!
    you could come in without an arm and dr would say.. "so, what's the problem?"

    p.s. - a member of my family goes to a different dr every week and now the doctor suggested that maybe HGH might help wutever ails this family member. i was like, YES, get me some of that HGH! i would KruZh all of you KrappE t3nn1z players if i was jack3d up on HGH! now the dr is stalling writing the script cuz this family member is receiving social security and dr wonders if hgh is really appropriate for helping elder members of society or something. dang it... hgh is on hold. if i show up this spring as 225lbs of lean muscle, bench pressing mazda3s, and doing the ray-ray dance.... i will delete this message!

    Dats, you have white spots? On the back of your throat? If so, perhaps go to Hollywood's doc. Tonsillectomy time.

    That will be $300. The bill is in the mail.

    Oh man the new BLX Blade Team has a super low flex too...Tears of joy are welling up from all these racquet companies FINALLY releasing low flex options. I feel like I can breathe again!

    topaz... due to being a sickly child, i no longer have tonsils or adenoids.
    my P1llz seem to be working though.
    drank my face off and went bowling last night.
    i've probably been bowling 4x total, but it was pretty fun.

    I would go to new zealand. Don't really know why exactly but Ive always wanted to go there. Could probably see both Islands in a week. There's great scenery.

    I'm sure they have disc golf courses so I could huck some plastic.

    And becuase its southern Hemi our winter is there summer.

    Man, those new Speed Pro YT IG's look pretty. Anyone hit with those yet?
    I was also looking at the YT Prestige pros, I love the clear-coat over carbon fiber look they have on one part of the hoop.

    FWIW - I hit with the new Blade Tour and the BLX 95 (18X20) for a bit, didn't like the feel of the blade for some reason (strings maybe??), but kind of liked the BLX.

    jrstriker -- i believe schap02 hit with those new IG's.

    my new year's resolution is to not buy anymore racquets - so i'm a monogamous guy married to the prince ozone tour. got to hit twice with them so far. each time out i like them more and more. i'm not sure what to do if i am not buying and selling racquets.

    Jrs,

    The blx is a good stick. I bought one. No more demos. The tight string pattern allows for increased control. I bought the 16 x 18. Hit with the yt pro and it's a nice stick overall. I personally don't like head grip shape.

    Dats,

    Follow your stomach and liver to the big easy.

    If the new version hits like the old version... so slow to swing! I like heavy frames, but that one felt almost unweildy.

    When are we doing another dubs night at FFX??

    Seems like the new Innegra speed pro is a little lighter (11.6 oz strung) and has the same SW as the Prestige Pro in spite of its 27.2 length - http://www.tennis-warehouse.com/Head_YOUTEK_IG_Speed_16x19/descpageRCHEAD-HS16.html

    I'm booked up at FRC until the Jan 24th. Maybe we can try the 25, 26, or 27?

    Yeah,

    One of the guys at FRC that I hit with has the BLX - he used to hit with the old pro staff - Orginal or ROK - I've got to ask, as I think he still has them in his bag.

    Anyway, I hit with them and they felt good, but not enough difference to switch IMHO. He also had the BLX Pro tour - but he didn't like it.

    Sup, are you using the BLX Khamsin or Cirrus?
    with your advanced 3.0 game, i gotta think you are more
    of a Khamsin Five guy, but the Cirrus might give you the added power you've been looking for! :p

    Hahaha.. Dats.

    I think the chapter was right. Superman does power up with the sun. It does the body good. Good enough that I got the BLX 95 16x18 and started moving my feet. I'm no Fred Astaire but on the right path. I only have one, so I'm traveling light.

    So Dats... Oregon or Auburn?

    Ah. Grey DC winter skies. Oh how I don't miss that.

    I almost picked up that bright nadal shirt. It's way too yellow. Like a highlighter. If I won't wear I won't buy it. Suitcase space is precious.

    RazorSharp? Most be a misnomer...

    It's a banter thread, mostly full of inside jokes among people who play tennis in the Mid-Atlantic section of USTA. Sorry if you can't hang...

    If you met us you would understand.

    Youre from Australia do you know Jason Belmonte by chance. I figure all you guys down there know each other right?

    Why do those Australian rules football refs do that double pointy hand symbol when someone scores? Thats way cooler than the NFL Touchdown signal.

    good game last night.
    the ducks repeatedly tried the "run up the middle w/ qb keeper option" over and over was soooo dumb.
    auburn's best player 300lb Nick Fairley was right there and also unblocked was #45 DE antoine carter.
    they thought they were going to run up the middle on the much bigger team?
    late in the 4th they started moving the ball easily on wider option plays.
    i think it was bad play calling by oregon. even that 4th down on the goal line.. you knew they would get stopped. bah!

    i also think the rule should be changed to where if you land on another player or if a defender pulls the runner down on top of him (and his knee didn't touch the ground), he should still be "down by contact".
    or if you are going to keep the rules the same, throw out late hits.. cuz you have to BE SURE his knee hit the ground so it might take 3 or 4 tackles to make sure!

    I hear ya Dats on the down by contact thing.

    That dude could have easily crushed that RB. But he let think becuase he was down (or so he thought).

    You hear the argument that you play to the whistle, but when a packed house is screaming you cant hear it. Then if the dude does just jump on top of the guy he probably gets flagged for late hit 15yds first down.

    But at least the RB didnt just drop the ball thinking it was over and an ORE guy ran it back to the house.

    Hey Auzzie, Tri-Level drawsheet is out. I'm kinda bummed, though, as we won't be playing you:


    I don't know which 'NOVA' you are, but it doesn't matter as we're 'Shenandoah' and play neither NOVA team.

    Will you be spending the evening there? Or heading home after your matches?

    I believe his team finished in first place so they would be NOVA 1. The other NOVA team received a WC.

    Auzzie, please correct me if I got this wrong.

    We just started tri-level matches...do the men play at a different time of the year?

    Ahh, so we do play his team on Sunday. Of course, I won't actually be playing him because someone (ahem) sandbagged & played at the 4.0 level...
