    Is it bad for your strings if you leave your racquet in the trunk of the car?

    Tensiom could possibly drop, but the same could be said in reverse in colder climates. Only real thing that affects strings is natural gut in a humid climate, as they absorb moisture

    Modding my brand new Ultra Tour platform frame

    I just picked one up after using the aeropro drives and pure aeros for years. I can see why H19 molds get so much love. Even at 18x20, I got good spin and arch on my balls. Perhaps a bit of lead tape at 12 to improve my serve and its golden. Let's see if the Wilson ultra tour V3 is just as good...

    Tennis Warehouse Playtest - Babolat RPM Power 1.25

    Just got my sample in the mail today. It is indeed a dark bronze color. Just by feeling it in my hand it is smooth and has no "rough" texture to it. It also kinks a bit, and feels stiff, but this is just me playing with it. Real review of actual hitting to come soon

    Tennis Warehouse Playtest - Babolat RPM Power 1.25

    Interesting how this plays. Regular rpm seems to die off, rpm rough is way more lively and soft. I wonder if rpm power will come in the neon yellow, as it matches the aero paintjob :love:

    Cost of Stringing Survey

    When I was at my university, I charged 15 for labor for my club team. Usually I would buy reels of solinco cheaper online, and charge whatever a set would cost. Ex: Tour bite is 12 bucks a set, but if I do the math on my cheaper reels, it would come out to about 7 bucks a set. So I would charge...
