    What could the USTA do to increase participation...

    There is quite a bit of room for improvement with USTA but keeping it to leagues and tournaments I'd start with the following. Leagues: 1. A national organization needs to have a national structure for league play. - We could probably have a very long thread with people's input and insight...

    Official Nike Zoom Vapor 9.5 Thread

    I'll be ordering a couple more pairs on the 'bay soon enough. I am nearing the end of my old purple FO color way and have 3 pairs of flyknit, but I found that even sizing down a half size once they break in they get pretty sloppy in comparison to that snug fit of the traditional 9.5's. The X's...

    4G Rough vs. ALU Rough tension differential?

    The Compare Strings tool on TWU has been a great help as I’ve tested strings lately. 4g was way too stiff for me but I found 4g soft to be a nice change from the softer poly’s I’ve used forever. Per TWU it appears that 4g rough is slightly stiffer than Alu Power Rough Sent from my iPhone...

    Foot fault in league match -- captain's job?

    We have a guy who likes to call people out for foot faulting at 3.5 as a strategy. Don’t be that guy. If you are that guy you better have some good hands Most of the time the people calling it have no idea they do it as well. I do it, my front foot will go up and back. I try to start a little...

    I'm a marketers dream - just bought a Clash

    Half my team has apparently bought the Clash.... one guy demo’d it and another few just bought it outright without even a hit. Hit with it for about 10 min but didn’t think it was life altering. Excited that more flexible racquets may be on the horizon however. Sent from my iPhone using...

    Nike Vapor X

    For me at least the biggest difference is the volume of the shoe and not width per se. My foot tends to be more high volume, which would push me towards a wider width in some models as a work around. Vapor 9.5 fit well but that volume difference is what is driving me away from the X.

    2018 YE Ratings Hype Thread

    Half the people I played against at 4.0 in the new section were 3.5’s. I’m never getting past 4.0 but getting to midrange is a 2-3 year goal Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
