Very nice pictures. Thanks for taking the time to take and upload them.

Nice Head racquet, by the way :)

I'd like to take this time to mention a certain thing about one grip modern tennis...

...it is possible to use one grip to hit both the forehand and the backhand.

The western forehand grip and the eastern single-handed backhand grip are actually the same!

powergame... i think they are opposite...

Powergame, that's a nice looking racquet, but could you take some pictures of it without your ugly hand?

eagl214 04-03-2005 05:26 PM

donnyz they arent opposite, you just use the same side to hit a forehand as you do to hit a backhand

duuuuude. sweet racket. i have the same ones. got three of those beauts. they're so awesome. i love em. they're even better with rubber bands as dampeners. i love the feel and spin. and the power! WOW! THE POWER! actually, there's pretty little power in those rackets, i'm just really strong. =) or maybe the spirit of Safin resides in my rackets... hehehe

Just a random thought, but everytime I see that racquet, my fingers cringe to the thought of stringing it with thick poly strings....

Sweet racquet nevertheless. Power Game, how hard is it to get deals with HEAD? I love that stick and wouldn't mind using the newer models either.

Me? Why? I took these pics to help some kids with grips and I figured I might as well post them here so some people can benefit.
