    Why is tennis on tv

    Yes I can tell a fast or slow ball or flat or slice. But Watching tv does give you real info. We all know race cars are fast but they don’t look that fast on tv. Also they constantly change angles. Ie soon in on toss. Zoom out for actual hit. Pan to wide screen as opponent goes to hit...

    Why is tennis on tv

    So outdated. I mean they used to throw up the serve speeds. Now not even that is commonly shown. And they could do so much more. With modern stats that could constant show speed per player/rpm/distance run/bounce height/net clearance etc. also there is almost no breakdown of point...

    Hyper G vs Revolution

    Looking for a comparison between the two. Playing with hyperG 18g now, but like the idea of blue strings in my ultra tour. The revolutions look similar, what do they play like.

    Boeing 737 Max

    I thought the new system can be disabled, but the crash last year was because the pilots did not know how to disable it. Boeing "made it easier and "re-educated" the pilots" after that episode. Which makes this crash more confusing. Either the pilots or boeing are definitely in the wrong

    Boeing 737 Max

    I thought the issue is the autopilot gets a little confused and the pilots don't know how to turn it off (the first crash anyways). Sensed a stall and nosed down.. and wouldn't let pilots correct without them turning off the safety feature. It is like trying to drift with the traction control...

    Guess how much my emergency appendectomy cost? *invoice*

    Most hospitals provide 20-40% care for free - i.e. they are not paid a penny for the care provided. If you show up at the hospital, they can not refuse to treat non-elective/emergency conditions (see line 1). If they do they are subject to possible fines and loss of all Medicare/Medicaid...

    Tennis Warehouse Needs

    Thanks. I must be slow, but helps just to see what all is new out there. There may be something that I can't live without that I don't even know about!

    A what's new button on the website (sale's website) that has all of the newly added items. Like the clearance tabs, but new.

    Amateur Stringer vs the Pro Shop....

    Be careful, I got a six can case for Xmas from a work colleaque, Great gift, then I opened the first can... super dead balls (even though seal/pressure intact). Later opened the other 5 cans.. all the same. Good news is my lab doesn't care about the bounce (they also all felt very heavy).

    Adidas Solecourt Boost Official Thread

    Update: Solecourt Boost: wore again for 2 additional singles matches. Really impressive ankle support almost like a 3/4 top without the bulk. If you have bad ankles/ankles that like to roll, these may be a good fit for you. Still no "break-in-pain" like I used to get with the barricade boost...

    New Racket Advice

    18x20 comfortable racket, old school feel -- UltraTour put a softer poly in it. I use Hylper G at 50 lbs.

    Adidas Solecourt Boost Official Thread

    I have received my Solecourt Boost and Adizero 3. Both are much wider than any Addias shoes I have worn in the past, and neither caused the familiar arch pain that I usually have with Barricades the first 3-5 hours of "break in". Solecourt: My usual size is 10.5, these were true to size in...

    Lead Tape

    Sorry- TW Tungsten tape is what I like, it is no longer listed on the site. Just the putty.

    Lead Tape

    What happen to the TW Lead Tape- by far the best! For me, all of the others wont stay on my racket (babalot, Wilson, Pete Sampras, and Gamma). I can't imagine that I am alone with this problem.
