    Spin Oriented Arm Friendly Poly/Poly Hybrid?

    Gotcha, thank you both for responding. I do have a super soft racquet and play in mostly warm weather.

    Spin Oriented Arm Friendly Poly/Poly Hybrid?

    @blai212 and @tdhawks did you try full bed Firewire or Firewire Boost? I've been using Firewire Boost for years now and find it to be quite comfortable. Firewire Boost is a half set of Firewire (super shaped poly you should put in the mains) with the super smooth and soft Ghostwire poly in the...

    Tennis in Orlando

    The USTA campus is nice but I only play there a few times per year. So not sure what it would be like as your home club.

    Arm issues : Stiff Poly low tension 36 lbs or Synthetic Gut at 55 lbs ?

    16 x 19 is still considered open pattern so I'm not surprised this setup works for that frame.

    Arm issues : Stiff Poly low tension 36 lbs or Synthetic Gut at 55 lbs ?

    Just curious, what is the pattern of your strings? I've got a 16x16 pattern frame. Given the choice when I do get elbow issues, I'll go low tension poly versus normal tension multis or synthetic guts. If I had a denser pattern, then I might not make that choice. Either setup can provide...

    Hamstring Inflexibility

    My left hamstring gets tight from time to time. I use a massage gun to loosen it up. I’ll also hit the glutes and hips with the gun too.

    "Clay court" sneakers are barely any different

    Totally agree with this.

    Tim Tebow is back

    He's pretty low on the depth chart and not playing any special teams. Usually those bench warmers they want to keep are practicing on special teams already. I think they will figure out a way to bring him into the organization but not as a player.

    Getting repeatedly accused of hitting a mishit on my slice overheads...

    Next time ask "Are mishits illegal now?"

    USTA survey about leagues ? (40's format)

    I always trust USTA to make the wrong decision, so I'm expecting no change next year.

    Suggestions for preventing cramps

    I usually drop 3 Nuun tablets in 64 ounces of water. which lasts me for the duration of most matches. I'll take 2 salt sticks every 7 games or so. When I get low on energy, I eat a Gu which also has electrolytes. Then splurge on a salty meal after.

    Tier One Firewire + PK Q+5

    My current setup that I've used the last few years is Firewire Boost (Firewire mains and Ghostwire crosses) in a very comfortable frame. I was intrigued after trying a full bed of Firewire, I loved the spin but in a 16x16 frame but the sharpness of the strings did not allow the setup to last...
