    since getting back into tennis i've noticed huge improvements in the technology of rackets. balls however are still the same. afer a few sets they stay on the court and i go home. why cant they make a ball that lasts longer. i was going to mention the man on the moon thing but its a bit cliche.

    Ive been using Tretorn pressureless--they last very well and make a sweet sound when you hit, like hitting with a regular ball seconds after you open it.

    The pressureless balls r much harder and very heavy. Watch out for arm injury. In the 'old days' U needed a very heavy racket to hit these 'rocks'. I think their only useful now w/ a ball machine.

    We use them for the bottom of desks. All of the elementry and private schools ask for them.

    If you're driving and you pull up next to a truck with a dog in the back. Pitch one ou the window and see what happens . . . Just kidding, but I've always wanted to do it . . . Bud
