    i have tried their pro hurricane tour, but i'm waiting to try the new multi fil poly string from them, i'm always up for trying something new to help my game

    whatever it is though, i usually stick with the lux orig in the mains because it's much stiffer

    Sydney Jim, this is a little off topic but I was curious as to how do you play with your Pure controls? Stock or do you add weight, and if so where do you add it.
    Thanks

    so you are not using babolat vs overgrip?? it is as good as wilson pro. (so many VS overgrip in white in your picture)

    I sweat so much and love VS overgrip but wilson pro is also good.. man you just wish to get free stuff..hahaha

    was that all for free!!!! or did you have to pay a portion it doesn't seem like it since you might not use the string/grip

    i really didn't have a chance to read all the posts, but ummm i just turned pro i've played 3 tournies, but my past kinda puts me in a good standing with vendors. i'm actually @ the IL Futures right now. As far as get things free, I don't think i've paid for a racquet since i was 14 =)... well maybe 3 =)

    sydney jim,

    you have a one handed backhand and that white wilson grip does not last you?

    You dont like to turn it around and put the top of the grip side at the bottom?

    that wilson grip to me seems to be the best lasting grip. anyway

    let us know if you have any quall wins as all the wins at that level are tough.

    to get into the main draw is a battle.

    A guy I know Eric Scharf is out there bangin with ya.

    ohh why dont you give your frames to Johny Blazed to string?

    good luck

    ps: hey your sittin in the hotel small computer room typin huh?

    i just saw mr blaze... i had him string a few of my sticks in florida, and i didn't see him before i gave my racquets to the tournament string guy, plus the tournament stringer is that new babolat stringer... the guy just has my strings all up and down and crap, he needs to straighten them before the strings set

    and turning around the grip is good and all, but i'm a little spoiled, plus if i really wanted to turn it around and have the same feel i'd have to cut the top like the bottom so it'll feel the same... i really don't want to deal with that, yes i'm spoiled sorry =(

    I did congratulate him... refer to my previous posts. But since he has so many overgrips, I was just asking for like 1 or 2 out of what, 60 overgrips? Just a friendly question!

    That is funny. He doesn't say: How dare you! That's terrible! That was in poor taste!

    No instead; he disqualifies himself on the account of not being old enough.
