I wonder if anyone here can shed some light on the following: Whether people that played with wooden and aluminium frames used to get tennis elbow too. I have started playing with aluminium frame from Kmart and was hitting with it more than 6 months without any problems. Then I got "serious" about the game and have bought new generation hyper carbon HH2.7 and got TE in one game. Since then I have switched to players' sticks, got rid of TE, but got GE instead, playing with Cat 10 and NXT at low lbs. Perfectly healthy combination. This chain of injuries just seems endless. Maybe my technique is not perfect, though it didn't get worse from the time I hit with aluminium. Back then I really didn't have a clue how to hit the ball, though didn't have any problems. Funny. There is something unhealthy about this game. If I go out to play soccer, it doesn't really matter how I smack the ball, it won't brake my leg, it doesn't matter how I throw the ball into the basket - it won't break my arm. There is something inherently wrong with this game, though. So back to the original question, was it so 20-30 years ago? Any TE/GEs back then?
