If you have problems with your elbow I would start off with a hybrid. PPP is supposed to be one of the softest poly's but it is the one that gave me the most arm problems. Good luck -
i traded for some of this...it feels very controlled and crisp IMO, more so than PSGD. I strung it at pretty high tension in an old PK 90. despite being sinfully ugly, it's a good alternative to the mainstream syn guts.
Anybody have comments/feedback in dealing with Reebok for the DMX replacement (6 month warranty)?
I sent a pair back 2+ weeks and haven't received any communication yet...do they call/email/just send? How long...do they give you credit or just replace the shoes?
Any info is appreciated --
tried it - didn't think it was that useful...may try coating a wear spot with shoe goo and then coating that with super glue?? otherwise i am back to buying several pairs of cheap shoes. it doesn't seem that the higher end shoes are lasting any longer than the $40-$80 shoes.
i bought the Reebox Triple Break Pump (DMX) and they were almost too cushiony (sp) for me. that said, they are in for warranty replacement right now as i burned throught the toe in about 3 months, playing 1-2 times per week indoor.
i bought one a year ago when i purchased the EAG-300 machine. both have been fine. i realize Eagnas/Maxline get a lot of bad press, but there is not much that can go wrong with a starting clamp. they are probably all manufactured in the same factory...

1 LM Rad OS

several old Prince aluminums, a Calpro that i picked up at a tag sale, and oh...my daughter's sponge bob racquet
i agree with the other posters...tennis much harder to get better at
was down to about an 8 index in golf, but now i am a 12. with a little bit of practice and good course management most people can get to the low/mid 80's pretty easily. getting to a solid 4.5 is going to take more than that!
most cranks come calibrated too -
they really are not that complicated...the only thing that is different from a DW is the crank, which operates off of the spring. the more you crank, the more tension is put on the spring (and into the string). mounting and everything else is identical to a DW.
cheers -- i think pro's pro is eagnas...which is the crank i have -
my point is that every machine is different, so one 60lb stringbed may feel slightly different from another 60lb stringbed.
you set a knob on the crank for the tenision you want (lbs or kilos) and you pull the string to...
as the poster said, it's all about consistency. if you know that you or a client are used to getting a racquet strung on a constant pull machine and they ask for 57 it is going to mean a tight 57. it may take a pound or two adjustment to make it feel the "same" at first, but after...
