    Are vibration dampeners still good after getting washed?

    Did you not see the tag "Dry Clean Only"? :)

    Which string for Wilson Steam 99S and 105S?

    If I had the open pattern frames I would try Pro's Pro Nano Vendetta. Comes in a 1.30mm gauge. Price is right at under $38 a reel.

    Low Tension / High Tension - Spin or not to spin

    My two cents... First of all, type of string matters. With poly/co-poly, you can go much lower in tension and it WILL increase spin because you're getting more string movement and a more drastic snap-back. Second, I'd suggest not all spin is created equal. What I mean is you may get a lot of...

    Klippermate vs. Gamma Progression II 200

    Easy.... you bring the arm slight up to release the clutch and you can tighten the slack from the frame to the machine and lower the arm to lock it in place. Once you string a few, it becomes almost second nature. You do the reverse when you're dealing with a stiffer string like a poly and...

    Klippermate vs. Gamma Progression II 200

    As a Klippermate owner... Advantages of the KMate: 1. Portability/Storage - I can keep my machine in a tool box. Makes it great for storing it when not in use and for taking it to matches/tournaments. 2. Durability - Machine is built like a tank! Clamps are also metal. No doubt it...

    Registry: Poor Mans comparisons to Big Brand Strings

    I second this. I think PPBO is a GREAT value for a shaped poly.

    How does the Dunlop Biomimetic 200G Max Compare to IG Radical Pro and Volkl C10 Pro?

    I second the issue re: arm health with the C10 pro, especially with how soft the frame is in the hoop area. For me, it feels much softer than the 63 RDC Stiffness reading.

    those with klippermate flying clamps ... again.

    I noticed ghost marks on some really soft multis. I never felt they impacted playability or durability of the strings. Am I wrong? I only string that string for a friend. Never had a problem of it breaking on a clamp mark.

    12.0+ Ounce Racquet - Big Serves, Solid Volleys, Great Spin?

    I second this. I migrated from the Prestige Pro/MPs and found the C10 Pro was very solid. My arm loves it too.

    Stan deserves the credit

    The fact is injuries are part of the game, especially at the end of a 2 week hard court tournament. Stan's game, and body, held up the best. Congrats!

    Völkl C10 Pro Club!

    I'm playing with my C10 at 50-52 right now with a stiffer poly. I love the feel. I'm not sure how it would feel with a multi at low tension. Might be too much of a launcher for me.

    Happy Hour at Tennis Warehouse!

    Wow... happy to get yellow Cyclone for $3.99 a set! Even at $4.99, why pay extra $3 for the packaging?
