So, a few minutes ago I got out my hacksaw, cut 1/2" off the shaft, put a new gel-cushioned grip on the racket. I was afraid to cut off 3/4", thought I would go one step at a time.
I have a USTA dubs match this Friday afternoon, can't wait to get into competition.
Meanwhile, my shipment of PowerMaxx Light Touch natty gut came in, so I will get the 108 restrung ASAP to see how it plays.
OMG.....your kidding!!!! You are too funny.....I think you are as crazy as I am!!
Maybe I should have done that?? It's a very odd stick. It's definitely fun to play with.
That really does sound like a good plan I must admit. I never thought of doing that? You have to tell me the results .
But why can't you get the 116? Is Tom and Joe sold out??
Good luck with the 108! It's a bit more demanding than the 133. The strings will make a big difference.
You are pretty dedicated....sawing off the handle .....omg!!!
You complete me
