    All woodies round robin (A review)

    I have a couple Maxplys and Kramers storage with gut that I keep ready to play at all times. Something that was suggested to me was to try using the junior/low pressure balls to take the shock out of mis-hits. I love playing with the woods and try to get others to give it a go (tough to keep up...

    rossignol F300?

    I have one in a bag somewhere. It is a handful to swing for a while to say the least. I love the old F200 and play with those a fair bit, but the F300 is much more racket to handle. It is also noticeably stiffer than the F200, but not anything that you would call a stiff racket by today's...

    Max 200G

    Worked for about a year on the design problem of improving on the original IMF by making it easier to produce while removing the head size issues (collapsing frames over 90 sq in). What a fantastic exercise (I do product and intellectual property development as my day job in other fields). One...

    Sweet spot of Max200g

    Any progress with the dePaume project? It's been a few months since I've been here, but this is one thing that has me very interested. If it's not going anywhere, I may see about getting something together. It wouldn't be an exact replica of the IMF frames because the issues with head size...

    Sweet spot of Max200g

    I'm very curious about how this will progress... Also, just as a matter of curiosity, Yonex, have you looked into the feasibility of the paintjob you are showing in terms of repeatability and cost-effectiveness for serial production? I would imagine that the wood-grain effect might be...

    Sweet spot of Max200g

    Thanks Hans, actually, I am that friend. I have done a lot of work on this as well as part of another project that I was working on and would be very interested to join forces if you are so inclined. I have worked out the issues with weighting and larger head sizes as well. Please contact me at...

    WOAH - Wimbledon confirms moving the tournament back one week!!!

    If only the FO would move a week or two earlier also. Then we'd have 4-5 solid weeks of grass before Wimbledon - talk about Nirvana...

    Oldest primary racquet folks are using?

    My primary rackets are Rossignol F200s, so they're about 30 years old. Still let you do incredible things to the ball though...

    what is the point of july?

    I guess it wouldn't be on the radar of most tennis fans, but July is the month of the World's largest annual sporting event - a little thing called the Tour de France. It's a significant part of the reason that Wimbledon doesn't move back a couple weeks (BBC coverage, etc.). As the second...

    Felt really bad for murray today

    I was really impressed by Murray today. None of the 'down in the mouth', bratty stuff that has been his M.O. in the past. He was fighting and giving it a solid go. Can he win a slam, yes. I am really starting to think he can. It could be the US Open this year even...

    Do you always root for players of your nationality?

    Couldn't care less about nationality.

    Serena quiet during wimbledon

    Saturday will be a shriek-free final. I think all tennis fans have an obligation to watch it, or at least have it on their TVs to try and send a message to the WTA about all the needless noise...
