This is cery true.

As rec players we TT members are the exception. Most rec players I've met up through 4.0+ don't care that much about their frame. The vast majority don't even know what stringis in their frame. It's just something the tennis store recommended. Stiffness? Tension loss? Nylon vs poly? What's all that about.

TT members are tennis tech geeks. And I like it.
Only on Talk Tennis can you find people who believe
that 10 feet of lead tape has no effect on a frame...
