    I'll have to try natural gut one day, just to see what it's like. In the meantime, I found 2x 2014 6.1 95 16x18 near me, $100 CAD for both. Visiting them this week.

    Just out of curiosity, how much play time do you get between stringings with that setup on the RF97A? I get 12 hours out of Yonex PTP 120 @ 50 lbs in the 6.1. At that point, the strings stop snapping back in place and I have to cut it out. Of course, that fresh string feeling goes earlier than...

    Good news, and also in the interest of bumping this thread. Got my hands on a used BLX1 6.1 95 16x18 in L4 this time, but can't be too picky. There's definitely a period of adjustment when I switch from L3 to L4 but it's not too bad. I installed a Tourna Pro Thin on the L4, kept the brand new...

    You deserve to stay at 3.5 forever

    I do this all the time, but alone. It's much harder. I've always wanted to be a tough guy - that's why I chose tennis.

    I don't get how a string job only costs $25.

    I think you can consider the fact that an affordable price gets the customer to the store, where you can sell him merchandise/services on which the profit margin is bigger.

    Do you compliment opponent's good shots?

    I do it as well. It just creates a better vibe and it doesn't cost me anything. I pay to play, might as well make it fun.

    Men should be limited to three-set tennis at Grand Slams, says Heather Watson

    I prefer Best of 5. But, up until 2007, most Masters Series finals were Best of 5...I don't really see anyone devaluing Masters 1000 events... At the very least, there should be a tie-break in the 5th set in every slam event. Playing 40+ games in the 5th set is pointless, the winner of which...

    looking for wide shoes with great support!

    I currently wear the 996v2 in 13.0 2E and it is narrower than the typical 2E from New Balance, but it fits me correctly, even while wearing ASO ankle braces. My socks aren't the thinnest but thick socks definitely do not work for me in this shoe. I also have the 1006 in 13.0 2E and this one is...
