    Help me cut down this demo list

    I play both. Probably more singles, but both are very important.

    Help me cut down this demo list

    I also added weight to my Blade 93, so I'm used to a heavy stick. I hope I can, because I love the stick, I just don't know if I can wield it at 16yrs old haha

    Help me cut down this demo list

    Burn FST 95- weird, weird feeling stick. Muted but stiff. The redeeming quality was the spin, but all in all the feel was too bad and I couldn't get used to it. Prestige MP- Nice control, feel, touch, and maneuverability. Downsides were that I thought it had a small sweetspot, I didn't serve...

    Help me cut down this demo list

    Definitely should have left out the Burn... That thing is crazy stiff, yet super muted. Never found my groove with that thing.

    which has more power: Lux 4g or 4g Rough

    Pretty similar but I give a slight edge to 4G Rough in terms of power.

    Help me cut down this demo list

    I'm going to a local store to take out some demos. The most you can take out is three, so from the following list, which racket should I cut? I'm coming from the Blade 93 using some Solinco poly. Aggressive all courter. Burn FST 95 Prestige Pro Duel G 330 RF97

    Thank you for the reply. When you say "responsiveness," what exactly do you mean by that? Power? Feel? Also, how to Hyper G and Tour Bite compare?

    If I wanted to start stringing my own rackets

    Alpha Axis Pro has been a great machine for me for home stringing.

    How did you get good at volleying?

    PLAY MORE DOUBLES! My volleys were fairly awful, even with lots of drilling, until I took the leap and played a lot of doubles. Playing doubles forces you to volley in a competitive, real environment. This is all assuming you are aggressive at net, no matter the current state of your volleys-...

    What is yall's favorite Solinco poly? If it is not Outlast, how would you favorite Solinco string compare to Outlast in the same gauge?

    String Question for Andy

    I recently switched to the Blade 98 18x20 and have loved it, but like you, have found it a tad hard to generate massive top spin on both the forehand and kick serve. What poly is there that has good control, lasts a while, and isn't too pricey that you would recommend for the Blade 98 18x20...

    Caloric Maintenance Level

    All was going well when I was occasionally playing and working out all the time, I kept steadily gaining size, and it seemed like nearly all lean muscle. Now I've started going to train hard for 2 hours a day and 30mins of conditioning, plus my workouts at the gym. Clearly, 2.5 hours of cardio...

    Caloric Maintenance Level

    I've upped my calories from 2500 to around 3000 a day but am not sure I'm meeting my necessary calories to build muscle. How can I know what my BMR is and how many cals I expend during the day from exercise and other activities?!

    How much protein do you need to build muscle mass?

    Yeah I would recommend at least one gram per pound of body weight, if not more. It really is not very hard to achieve at a lighter weight, but gets harder as you get bigger. If you focus on it, it is easily attainable, even without supps.
