    I messed up on my first stringing… how bad is it?

    I actually read a piece a number of years back that was basically saying many shops and stringers were moving away from 1-piece jobs entirely, even if you might use like a full bed of lux or rpm blast for example. They were saying the industry standard has basically become to do it as a 2-piece...

    Tennis-Pickleball War In LA

    Yuck! I couldn't do that these days because the court surface is really hot for their paws. I try to wait until it drops below 90 Fahrenheit outside before I talk my dogs for a walk. There was one day when I decided to take my two dogs to Lowe's, and walking in, one of them was like I have to...

    Are you capable of admitting you're wrong, even about petty things?

    "Am I the only one who gives a **** about the rules?!"

    A petty thing I was wrong about. :-D

    Tennis-Pickleball War In LA

    It got ugliy-ish here in our community, because people complained so much that they went ahead and approved the construction of several pickleball courts. I think they actually put pickleball lines in for one of the tennis courts, but I'll be happy to have them build separate courts just to keep...

    Unless he can reproduce aseuxally, then I would certainly hope he did get some help. :-D

    When was the last time you created something?

    Isn't it pronounced Bariya, and not Barilla like Gorilla? In any case, I tend not to buy from Barilla because their owner made some rather sexist remarks several years back, sort of suggesting that a woman's place is in the kitchen, so they're kind of on my **** list. Plus, I can get cheaper...

    I messed up on my first stringing… how bad is it?

    I never learned to do a 1-piece job, actually. Even if I'm using the same string throughout, I always do two piece jobs and for the vast majority of rackets it works just fine to cut the 40' string into 2 20' halves. There aren't too many rackets out there that require longer than 20' for...

    Working as Wilson Stringer for US Open

    Lol, I seem to recall Nadal sending rackets to be strung like 10-12 years ago at the Aussie Open, and they had it back to him in less than 20 minutes flat. No way could I string that fast myself, but I'm somewhere in the 35-40 minute range per racket.

    I messed up on my first stringing… how bad is it?

    I remember my first string jobs were pretty bad until I got the hang of it lol. I think the first one I made the grievous mistake of not using like a free cheap syn gut to practice with and ended up cutting a set of poly too short to use. I think I also did a misweave a couple times of the years...

    Are you capable of admitting you're wrong, even about petty things?

    Only place I hate putting the cart back is Costco, but then again I hate so much about Costco trips. Never go there on a weekend and avoid it whenever possible is the best advice I can give.

    Would you donate your life saving if it meant your Favourite player would win slam race by a margin of 3-4 slams??

    This is insanely idiotic. Who in their right mind would give up their hard earned money for a player they’ve never met to win a slam race? I’m happy to keep my money and have Nadal or Djokovic end up with more slams than Federer.
