    Does anyone know what type of Yamaha racket Ronald Agenor was using in the 1989 French open quarter final match. It appears to be back and a light green color......

    Klippermate advice, losing the will to live.

    First I want to start off by by saying this......I bought a new Klippermate about 7 yrs ago, string slipped, adjustment was difficult, so I returned it and bought a gamma x-2. After struggling with the plastic clamps with the gamma I bought a used KM on **** and set myself to learn to string on...

    question on stringing Wilson steam 99s with flying clamps

    I just want to echo what the above poster said. Triple clamp is the way to go, and it also helps eliminate a lot of the clamp twisting during tie-offs on the mains. I believe you can purchase one from Newtech tennis......just google them.

    Is an older racquet good for practice?

    I would have to disagree with the above postings. I would encourage you to get a twenty dollar reel of cheap nylon (Forten has cheap ones) and just start getting used to the basics. I would not start on a good racket as things such as wrong mounting and not stringing the racket equally can cause...

    Does stringing with a drop weight machine destroy a racquet over time?

    The racket doesn't know if a drop weight is pulling the string or a 7,000 dollar electronic machine. In my opinion it's all about the mounting.

    Bad practice?

    If you look at tournament stringing videos which I do if I can find them, you will see bad practices all the time. The most common is pulling the string across the mains without fanning the string. And thanks for the advice Irvin.....its always nice to argue with you. :D

    I made a mistake on my recent post in the stringing section and got my post mixed up with Irvin's quote.......please clean up if you can as I can't seem to fix it.

    Bad practice?

    It wasn't the t-shirt or even the name on the racket, it was the racket itself. I am a Gasquet fan and know a few for instance he now has the leather grip all the way up the racket and for me the most telling signs is if you look closely at the racket you can see the liquid metal...

    Bad practice?

    Saw this video and I find it hard to believe that a professional stringer would string mains from outside to inside. Just wanted to know if I'm missing something here.
