cb -- got my londons in yesterday. full bed tour bite 17g at 50 pounds. a lot of power. a good chunk more than my exo3 tours. almost as much as a pure drive. that was surprising. spin was very good but not quite exo3 tour or APD level. quality control on these sticks wasn't tremendous. one weighed 318 grams with dampener. the other 326 grams with dampener. swingweight is listed on TW at 311 but they felt a little sluggish. balance on these are 4 pts HL. but just on comfort alone they are very nice and the feedback on a well struck ball is nice. i wish i felt that more often than 1 out of 10 shots.

sup -- i know i'm a slappy forehand hitter. i know i need to not break my wrist on forehands. you know it, i know it, the american people know it. what's the easiest cure? when i keep the wrist laid back -- my forehands have nice pop and sizzle. the other 9 forehands are mostly pop and fizzle. any mental tricks? ball machine? hypnotherapy?

what's for lunch people? i'm falling off the exercise wagon. i'm getting some banh mi -- great suggestion CB.
I usually just try to balance it out with alittle lead. (or in my case, I always overlead. =) ) London is really lead and string sensitive. There's alot of properties you can change with the racquet. The one I love the most is adding lead at 5/7. Improves Plow quite a bit. But it killed my serve, but then my serve sux anyways.

Forget about driving to Eden. Gas prices is going through the roof! Dang hurricane is shutting down all the gulf refineries.

btw, where do you get banh mi in ur area? I thought all u have around ur area are burgers and Guapos. btw, do they still have Faita Buffets there? I can do a sap on them.
