    Hamstring Inflexibility

    It still could be something more limiting in your back or hip that is reducing your reach. That is a complex stretch involving movement and reach at shoulder, thoracic and lumbar spine, pelvic rotation and hip flexibility as well as hamstring and possibly calf as well. What about a more basic...

    Hamstring Inflexibility

    Couple of things.... How do you measure your flexibility between each leg for your hamstrings? I'm not 100% sure being tighter makes it more likely to cramp. From my experience if your muscle is weaker or over worked it is more likely to cramp on full contraction (heel to bum curl)...

    Serve at 15 seconds

    Eish. Ok. That explains your weight transfer issues. I still think you are prematurely trying to halt your swing to turn it into a kick serve rather than following a natural path. This means you aren't hitting with the racquet speed you need to produce the spin required to make the ball kick...

    Serve at 15 seconds

    What are you trying to accomplish by halting your swing once you have stuck the ball? There is no follow through and no weight transfer to the front foot.

    Stringing Club Dudes Weigh In

    Eish. I'm way under that. About $7 if they provide strings. Otherwise it's that plus string price. I need to up my charges. Granted I'm based in a cheaper country overall

    Collaborative Effort By Bob Patterson: To all the parents of beginners who think their 11 year beginner needs poly. Please stop and read this

    For some people syn gut does break too fast. Your option then is going to a 18x20 pattern or else going to a poly setup. I have tried 1.35 and 1.40mm sun got but dont normally recommend it. If you breaking 1.30mm syngut fast then you are hitting hard and if you control it at that strength then...

    Collaborative Effort By Bob Patterson: To all the parents of beginners who think their 11 year beginner needs poly. Please stop and read this

    I have also had trouble convincing people to move away from poly. Even the soft polys are not suitable for most players at club level. And then those players who hit flat are also asking about using poly to give them spin. Drives me nuts. Recently convinced someone to use multi due to arm pain...

    How much do you typically pay for a string job with your own string?

    Fine by me. Pick up and drop off at your expense. Located in Durban, South Africa. Been told I'm really cheap. But dont string for that many people and got into it as a way to save my own stringing costs and ended up stringing for a few friends along the way

    How much do you typically pay for a string job with your own string?

    Wow. I'm charging the equivalent of about $6.10 for stringing someone's racquet with their own strings
