    Yonex or Asics?

    Like anything, fit depends on your foot shape, etc... For me, the Yonex's were too narrow and caused me problems. Can't comment on wear because I play almost exclusively on clay.

    NRG2 replacement...

    The closest thing I've found to NRG2 (and 1/2 the price) is Pro Supex Maxim Touch. Don't know how easy it is to get there, though.

    Is Steam Coming Out Of My Ears Yet?

    I give you credit, Cindy. I'd rather stick my head in the oven than captain again for all the frustration it causes.

    Maxim Touch users...

    I string full beds for at least 8 different players ranging from a 3.5 man to 4.5 men and women. Most of the people were using NRG or X-1 and like the savings without a significant decrease in performance.

    Need Your Help: Stand for Alpha Revo 4000

    experience w/ knee injections-hyalgan, synvisc or other artifical synovial fluid

    Valid method for testing if clamps are tight enough?

    My first reel of PS Maxim Touch was VERY oily. I would almost automatically clean the clamps before and after every job. My 2nd reel was much better. What I do now is use a starting clamp as a backup when I start the mains. To know if the clamps are tight enough, I took a piece off the set I...

    How do you measure 40ft from a reel?

    In my house, I loop string through the refrigerator handle and have marked a spot exactly 20 feet from that point (which happens to be in the living room.) I estimate the 19, 18, and 17 foor marks from that spot.
