You have to understand that my strokes are finally back to where they should be, and my serve is finally rounding into form. I am at the point where the 4.0 guys I used to lose to I can now beat and look good doing it. So with that happening, I learned what works for me. When I was hitting like this before I had a Prince 90 and then a Head Graphite Master (still have the Master BTW..it is a pretty sweet racquet, but I can't find grommets for it) and was a teenager player usta tournies.
So yeah, I think you will see me sticking with the prestiges, because they have made me a better, more consistent player. This is just some fine tuning, and no real big switching is going on anymore. Trust me, you have to feel this heat to understand what it can do to your will to play tennis sometimes.
i've played tennis in over 110 degree temperatures before were after a few games the water in my bottle was like tea. They gave you extra time between sets due to the heat. Oh wait, i was 16 years old then, no wonder i could handle that. Now adays? find an indoor court hehe. So anyway, why not just sell everything and fund like 2 more TGKs?
