    so this means that string savers eliminate all spin?

    Partially torn supraspinatus

    The tendon had a pretty good-sized tear (this isn't always the case with impingement), so they had to suture it as well as remove the bone spur and re-shape the bone. They also found that I had a torn labrum and repaired that as well. The labrum was actually the bigger deal. I hadn't used the...

    Partially torn supraspinatus

    I had a supraspinatus tear that I spent 6 months trying to rehab, unsuccessfully. It turned out that I had a bone spur on my acromion (bony extension of the collarbone that forms the "point" of the shoulder. The bone spur was abrading the tendon, preventing it from healing. Surgery was the...

    I feel sorry for Federer's Legacy...

    Oops... meant 2008 rather than 1998 for Federer's "bad" year.

    I feel sorry for Federer's Legacy...

    Okay. Full disclosure: I couldn't bring myself to read this whole thread, only the first and last page. But, for what it's worth, here's my view. The 90's (and Sampras) were the low point of tennis in the past 30 years. I saw a statistic somewhere that the average rally length among the...

    the flexbars - do they really work???

    Yes, the flexbars work. It's really not magical. The concept of "eccentric" exercising in order to rehab tendonitis is well-established. (this means exercising a tendon by starting with it contracted and then letting it extend under load). Google achilles tendonitis and you'll find that the...

    Question on Golfer's Elbow

    Thanks guys for all the feedback & advise. I just dropped off a racquet for stringing with Xcel (seems like about the softest multi out there) @ 5 lbs lower tension (55 instead of 60) I'll try the tape too. I'm in the process of getting my own stringing machine so I can experiment more...

    Question on Golfer's Elbow

    kslik: umm....yeah. My wife tells me I'm pretty stubborn ("But, honey, I LIKE to hit really hard with tight, stiff strings.") Mike: I'm confused too, but I thought TE would present itself on the bottom of the elbow (with the hand held out palm up), near where the funny-bone is...

    Question on Golfer's Elbow

    I started playing again after LONG hiatus and shoulder surgery. Being the type-A impatient person I am, I'm serving and hitting pretty much as hard as I can. I'm experiencing elbow pain for the first time - it seems to be triggered mostly by serving and whip forehands. From what I've read...

    laserfibre are you out there ??

    Fraud in the works? I was researching stringing machines and the Laserfibre came up really high (based on its Stringway roots). I called the company and they talked me into placing a "shipping reservation hold" for a spot in the shipping queue for a big batch of machines they would be shipping...
