    Video of solid 5.5 players.

    I think these guys play-wise (result-wise) are definitely strong 4.5s or even weak 5.0s, even though they may not look it. I am a middlish 4.5 and wouldn't want to be playing these guys for points ...

    Video of solid 5.5 players.

    5.5 is a D1 player. 6.0 is a pro To be a 5.5 you not only have to have consistency and placement, but true solid technique, power, speed and athleticism. 5.5 Players as a rule have 110 mph+ first serves and heavy reliable 2nd serves. The guys in the video have poor technique, poor footwork...

    Real 4.5 match play

    these guys are really good ... but the guy in white shirt shot selection is very questionable ... I don't understand why is he not camping out in the blue-guy's backhand corner.

    ET's Ian Vs Green Shirt Hacker

    - I did it with Simon and Alex from TTT - it was 1500 for a 2 day session (yes way rich). - it was good, but mostly geared to 3.5-4.0s and I am a 4.5 player ... so I'd say for me it wasn't useful but gave me a reason to visit Palm Springs, which was a plus, my wife got to go to State Parks etc...

    AlphaGut is terrible!!!

    I was lured in by the great review ... so I gave it a shot as a gross with Klip Legend ... (56 / 53 lbs) Initially - looked nice and smooth, I was excited ... After an hour of hitting - the smoothness was gone, the contact points - where it touched the gut, it turned white and was starting to...
