    Wanted: Tecnifibre TFight 315 ltd 16M

    I think I have what you're looking for. I can send you some pictures. It's an L3 grip. Good condition and currently strung with gut main/poly cross at 58/52lbs. Not really looking to trade I think, too many rackets already. I'll PM you with pics.

    My X-6FC needs parts. 1 of the frame support slide knobs (#270 in X-6FC manual) came off of the bolt. It's the plastic knob version. Can this be replaced? I recently found a small pin down in the tray of my stringer. It's from the clamp. When the clamp handle moves, there's a little roller so...

    WTB: Head Classic Mid

    I think I might have what you're looking for. It's a 4 5/8 grip though, but of course that can be changed.

    FS: Head Youtek Prestige Pro

    Trade for Youtek IG MP? Just a shot in the dark, but since you're selling the Mid and Pro, I thought maybe you'd want the MP. I've got 2 IG MP's and would be happy to trade one.

    Best match at the French so far (Men or Women)

    I chose Gas-Waw match. It was one that I've looked forward too and it was just as good as I'd hoped. I also find it interesting that despite getting absolutely hammered constantly by the online community, Isner was on the list twice, and really has had a number of memorable matches in the...

    Need a string in this order

    I've tried a few of the strings listed and PPA is definitely nice. I still prefer Rip Control though and always keep a couple sets of it around. For me it basically has the control and spin of a smooth poly, holds tension better than any poly, is soft on the arm, and pretty affordable. I've...

    QUESTION: Head IG Prestige MP Pallet Swap

    Most people just get a longer grip and wrap it higher up toward the neck a little. That provides plenty of room for a 2hbh, and doesn't make the racket longer (unless you really want an XL racket...).

    Best Spin String?

    I've never found anything that spins like Tour Bite (haven't tried the soft version yet but I will soon). I was actually a little surprised when I first hit with Tour Bite. The only bad thing is that it seems like the magic dies after about 8-10 hours. I also found that the thinner 19g Tour...

    Steam 99S and 105s users - now the hype is dying...

    A little off topic, but unless you've tried and love Gosen Polylon, I strongly recommend looking at other options. I bought a reel of it because it was the cheapest on Tennis Warehouse, and I really regret the purchase. I've been testing out some Pros Pro strings lately and they are MUCH MUCH...

    Donnay Xene core - True? or BS?

    My experience/insight: I have a pretty iron arm when it comes to rackets. I've rarely felt any discomfort from any racket. I picked up one racket a couple years ago though that, despite a 60RA flex rating, started really bothering my arm. During and after play, my arm (from below elbow to...

    Racket stiffness not the whole story?

    I have also found that there can be a big difference in feel despite similar stiffness ratings. There's a couple things I've theorized, but of course have no way to prove without some in depth experiments and complicated tests/machines: I feel there might be a difference between static...

    Which brands of tennis racquets do you DISLIKE

    I voted but wish I could choose a couple. I have a hard time finding Wilsons that feel good to me, but I like some of the Pro Staffs a lot. But overall, I'm not a Wilson fan. I also wish I could choose Babolat. Haven't ever used a Babolat I enjoyed. The PD 2012 isn't bad but still...

    How much do you hate losing?

    Depends on how I play. I could be loosing but playing well and I'll be in a great mood. OR I could be winning but playing crap tennis and ready to go home and try another day.

    are low-powered racquets better for developing your strokes?

    Ya, I've been doing some casually friendly teaching for some friends and for my wife and I find that many beginners have the same issue of blasting balls to the back fence. I've never had a beginner who swings too slow and hits the ball but it doesn't go over the net. No... they all swing too...
