    What do you think of this starting knot for crosses ?

    Never liked the idea of a starting knot for crosses, Puts to much pressure on that one point, it's not consistent. Better to just clamp it. But yeah, I like it. :)

    nCode 90 Grommets?

    I don't know how bad your grommets are, but you can reuse old ones by simply pulling them out.. use a hot gun on it, it will straighten them out and will shrink the tie off thing-a-majig back to it's normal size so you can replace it.. but I'm sure it's way beyond recovery.

    Arm Friendliest? Prince Original Syn Gut, Forten Sweet, or Gosen OG Sheep Micro

    Gamma has an RX string for people that need arm friendly string, of course you could just go with Natural gut which is probably the most arm friendly.

    Shaving down Wilson handle?

    Nice thing about it, is that one side is tacky,, but not like tape, just tacky so it stays in place, and the other thing, which is or not nice is that if it's right under a over grip, it adds texture to your grip.

    Shaving down Wilson handle?

    Never had a problem with calluses so, never was an issue, but, I did find it rather hard, so I found this..lol, dry wall tape. Strangely it works very well to provide some cushioning, yet since it's made of fiber glass, it retains a sharp bevel, and whats more, it's about half as thick as a...

    Shaving down Wilson handle?

    I shaved from a 41/2 to 4 3/8. It never felt right and I don't use it.. You have to get all the bevels exactly, cause if you don't, you will notice that it's not. I eneded up just using a couple of over grips and that worked fine, especially since, I like a hard grip anyway.

    DIY Stringing Projects

    DIY Stringing Projects

    Very nice job.. Mine is a little different. 1st, I had thought of something similar to your Reel box, but. I nixed that idea cause I didn't want to unload all the reels to replace an empty reel and further, I had so many reels that I thought it best if they were free standing, plus, I wanted an...

    Ok. You're the stringer. What's your advice for this player?

    It will heal, it will toughen up and she will be good to go. I remember as a youth, when tennis started up, I would always get a blister there and then it would go away.. no big deal.. just have to suck it up for a couple of days.
