You know, I'm actually starting to believe this based upon my two outings with my 25 year-old Maxply McEnroe woodie with 25 year-old strings in it over the past few days. One day of singles and one day of doubles playing many sets and not once
was my serve ever broken.
I was also hitting some unreal forehands at greater pace than with my usual nCode 90. My balls were so hard and heavy that my opponents had trouble dealing with them. A few times they didn't even have enough time to get their racquets up to try and volley some of my shots hit at them when they were at net.
Hmmm....maybe there's something to this and the claims of some of the old pros.
