Default T-2000 strikes again

I was playing a match on Wednesday and towards the end of the match, decided to pull out one of my old T-2000s from the magic bag of stuff.

I was surprised by a few things:

1) Darn thing still hits pretty well, despite having a sweet-spot the size of a dime, and being a lot heavier than most modern era racquets.

2) The sweet sound of the ping of the strings when you hit the ball. When I had mine strung, some 32 years ago, I had it strung at 80. It still feels like it might be somewhere around 68-70.

3) The leather grip feels awesome.

4) I won 50% of the games playing a higher level player with a modern racquet.

Not a bad outing for the old girl.
