Speaking of X1 . . . Just put a new set of it in Sunday, had a great 1.5 hour hit today. That stuff felt fantastic. So literally in the last 2 minutes of court time I shanked a ball near the tip and SNAP. I guess if I keep doing that I don't have to worry about the dreaded rocket launcher phase (or having any money in my bank account)
