    Just called them up, opens at 11am and $9/lunch buffet.

    I better watch out if tmonk goes, it's not the big ppl I fear at the buffet. It's always the skinny ones that out eats everyone.

    Geez, took my demos back in court today. IG speed still hittin nice but my ol rdis200 is.back in the running. IG speed swings easier which helps in a lot of places on the court but rdis200 feels so plush and solid. A bit harder to serve with due to my poor technique but this thing is a real Cadillac. I can't wrist balls over the net but when I use good technique it has font spin power and decent control. Igspeed is crisper almost boardy but the results are usually good.

    If I could serve a little better with rdis200 id prolly end the search cuz I still got 3 of them. But I guess I always had problems with it and that's why I switched.

    I shoulda demoed donnay pro one 18x20 too.darn

    Is everybody still eating?
    I just made giant oj,yogurt,& banana smoothie. Either I was starving or it was the best.smoothie ever. L8rs!

    Good description of how I remember those 200s. I'd say the Pro One is too demanding. Just go with the Speeds and enjoy the consistent response already! Plus who doesn't love a black and white pj!

    Yo Auz, if I run into a pile of $$$ ill get the IG speeds but til then I sorta sux with all racquets so it don't matter which one I use.
    You tried the Pro One? they look about as close to an h22 or pt57a as I can afford. thought the IG prestige no would work but it feels kind of cheap and not solid enough. dunno. going to hit with my dad now so maybe that will help me decide. L8rs doood

    let me know how the ag100's play. Is it really low powered?

    Wishing you luck! It's cold outside!

    Zap: What happened to that self imposed rule about not playing below 55 degrees?

    my wrist is feeling better today... all of a sudden i can swing any racquet and the SW don't feel like 450. weird. of course that means 6 months of ice age temperatures.

    man, i wish i just kept the 100 racquets i used to have.
    geez, i used to serve 130mph with a head flexpoint radical tour.
    that thing was MONEY! why did i sell it? dang

    oh well. i guess there are still some good racquets out there.

    p.s. - how long before RG3 is RIP? watching him get crushed adds another level
    of excitement to Washington Natives games. that and watching field goals go wide right!

    I'm an A's fan and and dislike the Dodgers, especially after game 1 of the '88 World Series. :cry:

    I guess I can root for the Nats now.

    Ah, the Kirk Gibson miracle, AKA the Best Baseball Call Ever ("I can't believe what I just saw." by Jack Buck). The As I can tolerate. I kinda liked those Charley O. Finley teams of the early 70s - Catfish Hunter, Vida Blue, Gene Tenace, Rollie Fingers, Reggie Jackson, et al. The team Dodgers' fans hate above all others is, of course, the Giants. I would have to pull for the Cardinals if they get through the Nats.

    I really would love to see a Nats-Orioles series; that would be fun, right, Hollywood?

    it was freezing at 7am, barely light. but i managed. i guess i broke my rule
