    String Combos in RF97

    I've never had issues with the OGSM getting cut into, but I'm not really a string breaker. I used 18 gauge OGSM and 17 guage MSV.

    Best natural gut currently

    Sounds good. I previously strung my OGSM/poly hybrids higher too and thought I would hit everything out when I dropped down to 54/50, but I think the increased spin made up for it. I was just surprised to find that my poly main/OGSM cross hybrid was more comfortable to hit with than the gut hybrid.

    Best natural gut currently

    How low have you guys been able to strung natural gut and still be able to control it? I have my Klip 17 at 56# w/ 52# poly crosses, and it's stiffer than I'd like. However, a lot of my balls are flying consistently 1-2' behind the baseline, and I think it'll just worsen if I string lower tensions.

    String Combos in RF97

    I've done OGSM in the mains with MSV Hex and Grapplesnake Irukandji/Tour Sniper in the crosses. I liked it quite a bit. 50 lbs poly, 54lbs in the mains.

    Percussion/Massage guns

    I bought a cheap knock off, supposed to arrive in a week or so... I've read they're similar to the real ones. I have tried Theraguns, and they are quite nice.

    Ankle brace

    Some of the most catastrophic injuries come from the most benign activities :P that's interesting though, so you actually had ankle pain from your injury post match? I only have instability when running around. I played again with the POD today, and I am really enjoying it. The only thing I...

    Pinkie side hand pain issues

    Yea, sounds like a hand injury rather than a wrist injury then. Definitely go see a doc.

    Pinkie side hand pain issues

    You can do a load bearing test. Lots of youtube videos. Another good sign to diagnose w/ is clicking in the wrist. IMO, there is never a full recovery, and a lot of people w/ TFCC usually report that (even w/ surgery). The main thing is you gotta take it easy. Wrist widget you should wear...

    Ankle brace

    Played with the POD brace. Worked great! It is a little tight in the shoe, and I have an arch so I don't think it would work well if you're flat footed. Ankle felt much stronger and the brace didn't impact my cutting too much. Forward and backward movement, zero issues.

    Pinkie side hand pain issues

    I would put my money on ECU Tendonitis or a TFCC injury. Long recovery time if either of those.

    Volley

    You naturally tilt the racket. You're fighting natural biomechanics by forcing yourself to straighten out your racket perpendicular to the ground.

    Windshield wiper still taught?

    What, the WW forehand? It's how I was taught when I was younger. It's all my body knows how to do. I think I just need to get a private lesson and focus on rebuilding my forehand. With my current group sessions, I usually do okay in the beginning during warm ups, but I completely revert to old...
