    L5 grip raquets

    You can always go the custom route. Some places will be able to mold a custom grip for you. But you will most likely have to ship your racquet to them.

    Less Spin with 4 1/2 Grip Size

    I have racquets in 3/8 and 1/2 sizes and I don't see a difference in the amount of spin that I can generate. I do feel that the 1/2 grip size gives me more stability.

    Anyone still use Wilson Pro Staff 85 competitively?

    I am about 4.5 and use the PS85, but I play for fun, not in a league. I have more modern racquets (RF97 and Vcore Pro) but I don't feel like my game is missing much with the classic.

    Stefan Edberg Adidas Racket

    It might have been the Delta Concept. I don't have a lot of info on it. Maybe the other guys do.

    OK, I get it, this racquet is not a classic: Spalding Orbi-Tech

    I had one Orbitech 95 a while back. I remember that it did not play any better than a regular racquet and the round head got constant attention and ridicule. After a few sessions, I sold it. But it was an interesting racquet to have in my collection.

    whats it like to have longer crosses and shorter mains?

    The closest that I know of is the Spalding Orbitech. It had a round head so the mains were the same length as crosses.

    Yamaha Secret Experts - Could anyone tell me the specs of Yamaha Secret EX?

    You just need to learn to swing like McEnroe and let the weight of the racquet do all the work.

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

    Most of the sticks that I play with are from the 80's. Currently in my rotation are the Prokennex Silver Ace 90, Fox Graphite Pro WB-210, Dunlop Max 300i, Yamaha Secret 06, Wilson Ultra 2 Mid, Wilson Ultra PFK, Prince POG OS. I know these racquets cover the whole spectrum and have not much in...

    Do we know this (former) collector???

    The package that I got does not have a name on it, just said Tennishaven, the same as the acct name on the sale site.

    Do we know this (former) collector???

    Not sure who he is but I purchased a Fox racquet from him. I can see his name on the shipping label once I get the racquet.

    is prince o3 white basically the pure drive?

    The O3 white does not feel as stiff as the pure drive. It is a lot more comfortable to play with and has good power. The pure drive is more powerful due to its stiffness.

    Is this racquet string correctly?

    Yes, I think it was strung in correctly. The pattern is to skip 8T but the stringer skipped 7T. Abel beat me to it :)

    Prince CTS Approach 110

    I bought 2 of them a few months ago. I strung with 16GA poly at 55lbs. And to me it feels very meaty (around 13oz) but I haven't measured it. But it is very powerful and solid.

    How to keep lead tape stuck on racquet?

    Some people use gorilla tape. Apparently it stays on until you want to remove it.
