    Which FC machine works best with Wise 2086 tensioner

    Anyone know if a Gamma 5003 (6 point) would hook up with a Wise easily? Would it need an adapter? 360 rotation later on? Thanks in advance.

    Borg, Laver, etc. at Hilton Head

    I have a '76 (or '77) Hilton Head match---Laver/Borg vs. Ashe/Nastase. Laver clearly had the best groundstrokes that day. Nastase regularly flipped out on line calls while Ashe calmly watched nearby. After they lost, Ashe said something like, "Well, I guess we're not well-suited as doubles...

    Wrist pain due to firmer replacement grip?

    Good luck with the Shock Shield. (I didn't like it---too thick.) Like I said, try a thin cushiongrip. You may like its shock absorption, and so will your wrist. Hey, even Sampras went from a leather/overgrip combo later in his career, to a cushion-overgrip combo (but that was because of...

    Wrist pain due to firmer replacement grip?

    I love the accuracy I get from a leather grip (and really feeling those bevels), but my tender wrist can't take the pain I get from it, even with an overgrip on top. There's very little shock absorption. So, since I don't like a full thickness cushiongrip, I use a thin one like Prince ResiPro...

    Prince Classic Graphite 100 grommets?

    Well, I guess that's a no. No big deal---I have a few more grommets left. Again, thanks to TW for offering the POG 100 and its Longbody over the years!

    FS: Angell tc 100

    What handle type? Type B standard, like a Prince grip? And this one is 27" long?

    Prince Classic Graphite 100 grommets?

    Any chance you'll be getting these beauties back in stock? Thanks again for supplying them earlier this year. TW is the best in the West! (And everywhere else.)

    Talk Tennis: Tecnifibre HDMX 16 playtest!

    Tension used for playtest---55 lbs. Regular string set up and tension---Head Rip Control 17, at 57 lbs. Racquet used for test---Prince Graphite Classic 100. Power/Control of test string---like others have said, it's more powerful than your usual poly. But I'm not used to a 16 gauge string, so...

    I got my HDMX test string last week, but all my sticks are freshly strung! All I can do right now is try out that Tecnifibre overgrip…..

    On a flight to JFK

    I'm really starting to love Intellitour 17. I just may buy a reel of it soon.

    On a flight to JFK

    See if Gilles Simon is still using Intellitour in his mains with a poly cross, or just the full bed of multi. Thanks.

    Best non poly you've ever tried? Need advice

    If anyone's interested, probably the only pro in the Top 50 who uses a full bed of multi or a multi/poly hybrid is Gilles Simon, currently at #34. He's been using Head IntelliTour as a main string or in a full bed for years now. Being a multi fan, I tried it recently and really liked it, but...
