    Could it be Tier One Ghostwire or Isopeed Cream? I bet there are some guys out here that know where to get trebling or at least know an alternative. I remember that always came unwound on my wood racquets.

    That was so nice of you to give it a swing and let us know! Thank you! I noticed you still had the old grip on it. That is great. I graduated in '81 so not far behind you. I always felt like I was hitting the ball down in the throat area on my forehand with it (i.e. getting jammed) but...

    What great looking racquets!!! When I was a kid a buddy had the Ashe and I hit with it. The balance was odd to me as it felt like a lot of it was in the throat vs. balanced, or at one, or the other. I am not sure if that was actually the case or my not adjusting. How does it hit?

    So let me read this. Can you reply just with the ****** part and I can piece it together?

    Actually I think you are confusing what you said earlier with what you say now. Of course every kid is trying to develop so they win more. Some of that development will mean losing more first before wining more later. Your statements about 10-14 year kids from above are below...

    You did read the article you sent didn't you??? It does not say winning is the only thing. It says that learning how to compete is important. In fact he says developing strokes is critical. Competing and winning are not the same thing. The first few lines in the article: Learn How to Win I...

    I kept thinking about Pete Sampras after this thread took a turn earlier. Pete after early success made a decision to switch to a one-hander and with that his junior rankings took a nose-dive. If he was only focused on wining would he have made that decision? It is my understanding they...

    I am not sure I saw any coaching or technique in this thread. I did see encouragement, previous experiences, and the current state of rules. As far as winning being the only way progress can be measured in 10-14 year old kids I strongly disagree. Most with experience developing players that...

    I am not really seeing that. In our section there was a highly ranked kid in 12s that was a moonballer. He would patiently wait for a short ball and then come in and get his opponent moving side to side with angles either hitting in front or behind the player. It worked great in 12s. By 14s...

    I thought April Fools Day was yesterday and dropped my guard! :cool: I saw the video when it was posted and frankly I did not think they were hitting the ball and had seen better in 14U (Just my opinion). From what I saw in 14U Nationals (be it a few years ago) it is a transitional age where...

    Aren't USTA Tournaments canceled? We have been unable to play. Not questioning you just curious as my son is unable to play.

    Under 6 Ft Player with Best serve

    I put my vote in the McEnroe category if he is 5'11". The question as I read it was not actually the fastest/hardest but the best. If we are speaking the best then with John being a lefty and the way he started his serve with his back to the court it was impossible to read. I can't really...
