    Just ordered a couple of their hybrid sets. Looking forward to testing them out.

    I really like the feel of the K7 Lime. However, I am still more comfortable with my TC95s. They are, of course, both exceptional frames. Makes quite a lot of the stuff today 2nd rate, IMHO.

    The TC95 18x20 I've been hitting with is extremely comfortable. The Dunlops I had been playing with for a year seemed to be too harsh on my arm. Switched to the TC95 for my last 4 outings and my arm pain has already decreased by about 50%. Don't know that everyone would have this experience...

    Dunlop Srixon Revo CX 2.0 (and Tour version)......the discussion......

    Was just looking and noticed the 2.0 Tour 18x20 seems to be out of stock already. Wonder if the quantities were that limited or if it was that popular? Glad I picked up my 2 at the beginning.

    Figured I would report back again after a couple of weeks with the 18x20 tour. Definitely settling more and more into this racquet. So much so, I now have 2. Very solid, love the feel. It pretty much has the potential to do everything well, in my opinion. Friend of mine wanted to hit with...

    Aramid/Kevlar String Comaprisons and Recommendations

    Whew, I will have to get up some courage to try Kevlar at 64. I know you indicate the Ashaway looses quite a bit of tension, I will just have to get past the mental part. ;)

    Hit some this evening, but not near as much as I wanted. However, so far, the looser strings definitely feel better. It's about an average of 44. I'm not sure that I have the best setup yet, but I'll keep tinkering with it. I definitely like this stick.

    Aramid/Kevlar String Comaprisons and Recommendations

    At the time I cut them out, no, they were not. I didn't string it that high, only 54.5. I've just been a lower tension player for the last 10 years or so, averaging in the mid to upper 40s.

    Why you want replace that head guard on your racquet

    Wow. I've seen some bad wear before, but this is awful. This frame now belongs in the trash pile. :(

    Aramid/Kevlar String Comaprisons and Recommendations

    I use the Forten quite often. I like it pretty well. Never had trouble with it breaking prematurely, but I string low and hit more flat, so could be the reason. I just tried some of the Ashaway last week. Honestly, I'm not sure I could tell a huge amount of difference. If anything, the...

    Tennis Warehouse: Laserfibre Native Tour co-poly playtest (Made in USA)

    I used it as a cross the first time around. It's certainly as advertised as far as being smooth and slippery. I just ordered another set so that I can try it in a full bed. It may be a week or 2, but I will report back. Thanks LF!

    Strung mine up about 5 lbs. looser and taking it out again this evening. With any new racquet I always go through a few different strings and tensions to dial it in where I like it. Sorry, I have no experience with the Ultra or Ltd, so I can't offer any comparison.

    Dunlop Srixon Revo CX 2.0 (and Tour version)......the discussion......

    Hit with my CX 2.0 Tour for about 2 hours this morning. I have it strung with Ashaway Kevlar 18 in the mains, 53.5 lbs. Laserfibre Native Tour 17 in the crosses, 44 lbs. Added lead from about 10 and 2 down to 8 and 4. Right now it's about 12.4 oz and 7 pts. HL. Although I always give a...
