    Is there a best version of the POG 107

    I got rid of all of my 4-stripes, just was time to move on. I still have a single one-stripe with grommets and a bumper, it crushes the ball. I had some elbow/forearm issue (not tennis related) and have never felt a bad thing with that racquet. Finally decided I was old enough to spend what I...

    Anybody still using a "Classic" racket (1990s and earlier) as their main racket?

    Almost had to re-add myself to this list with another addition today. Found a Woodie at the Thrift Shop for $7. I literally just sold the one I found in my dad’s bag and still had to firmly put my hands in my pockets and walk out of the store. Another 90 seconds staring at that thing and it...

    List of tennis racquets that cause arm/shoulder problem/s.

    No racquet ever hurt my elbow. Trying to squeeze out a few extra reps of weighted pull-ups did me wrong. Some exercises are just not meant to be done to failure.

    Are they going to Are they going to reissue the Approach? They’re going to go all in on CTS and bring back the best of the bunch. You can tell us. We won’t let the secret out. It’s the Approach with Twaron.

    Anybody still using a "Classic" racket (1990s and earlier) as their main racket?

    With modern string I don’t know why it wouldn’t play well. The CTS technology has held up at least reasonably well for Prince as they’ve gone through the various iterations of the company. If they were to reissue that frame with some small upgrades like a touch of Twaron etc, I’d buy one without...

    If you guys throw a tennis ball...

    If you guys throw a tennis ball...

    About 3/4 of a racquet length in front of my left foot, at about 1 o’clock. I’m right handed.
