I never said you lied. My comment was directed at the serve referenced, and the mph the poster claimed the speed was. I don't doubt you could hit the mph you state you have been clocked. However, the serve referenced is not 125 mph. I know this based on my own serve. I have been clocked at 118 MPH, and could tell you 118 MPH is a lot faster than the serve on the video.

Sorry, but this is not a very good technique to clock serve speeds.

As I stated in the thread where you posted the video originally, I think you have a good serve and thanked you for sharing them with us. I'm not trying to knock you in any way. I'm sure lots of guys on here wish they had your serve.

Peace!
