    Is there any hope Pacific tennis rackets will return?

    Hope you recover and play again soon... I've been exclusive with the MSpeed 105 well over 10 years and have 10 of them, both SL and UL. I have been faithful... My only want - replacement grommets because I frequently dig for volleys

    Lowering my tension

    I just string at 30lb on a constant pull. I'm def in the low tension camp for several years. With full poly, I've gone as low as 25lbs but didn't like it there. 30lb seems to be the sweet spot for me. I don't even like 32lbs and my elbow/wrist don't neither. I must be a soft egg...

    Lowering my tension

    I used to use the ERT300 to track SBS fresh off stringer and every day on the court. Then noted which SBS felt best, or I really should say which day I had played well. I then tried duplicating that SBS fresh of the stringer or by pre-stretching or by letting it rest til it hits that SBS...

    The Fischer Faction!

    I don't know the specs of the Pacific X Force Comp to compare but... I play w/ the 105 SL altho I also have the UL as well but haven't played with it for quite some time. My wife uses the UL. Few weeks ago, I strung up the UL (same string/tension) hoping I'd get more racket head speed and...

    Multifilament vs Synthetic Gut for Different Level Players

    For me, tour bite soft plays very very similar to MSV.

    Multifilament vs Synthetic Gut for Different Level Players

    My tension was buried in my original post... I use and like various MSV strings, cofocus, Evo focus and evohex, I prefer 1.25 on the mains, 1.20 crosses. 30lbs on constant pull. I've gone as low as 25 but 30 is the sweet spot for me. I don't even like 32.

    Multifilament vs Synthetic Gut for Different Level Players

    Appreciate the concerns gents. I'm def monitoring how it goes and if she can/should stay on it but so far so good. For my own TE arm, I'm convinced of the switch to low tension with poly both in playability and comfort. It's been a win-win for me so far the last few years. YMMV...

    Multifilament vs Synthetic Gut for Different Level Players

    late to the party... My wife plays 3.5 league doubles 2-4x a week. She got TE a few years ago most certainly from overplaying and poor techniques After that, made her use either the Prince EXO Tour or the Fischer MSpeed 105 SL 320g strung w/ natural gut, then natgut/syngut then finally to...

    I need help with finding shoes that fit me (need advice from people familiar with head shoes)

    I only have experience with the Revolt Pro 2.0. As recommended, I'd ordered half a size up and they seemed perfect initially. Until they broke in after a few months then they're slightly too roomy. I'd ordered a 2nd pair w/out going up in size and they seem a tiny bit snug w/ my usual thick...
