    how do people decide between 1hbh and 2hbh?

    Anyone else use to have a 2 handed backhand but then took an extended break and then can't do a 2 hander anymore? After a 7 year break I now use a 1 handed backhand because 2 handed feels very uncomfortable and unnatural to me now even with help from my friends

    [Request] Can anyone post a video of stringing synthetic gut/multifilament with a drop weight and floating clamps?

    [SOLVED] Ok so I found the error. After wrapping the string around the gripper, I wasn't rotating enough to remove the slack. After rotating the gripper more I was able to tension after dropping the weight once with few adjustments AND the drop bar no longer constantly drops after leveling. A...

    Stringing with Gamma X-2, gap between ref. tension and RacquetTune readings

    The racquet tune app is like 10% off usually. I wouldn't entirely trust the racquet tune app tbh. The gamma tension checker on TW is worth the money

    [Request] Can anyone post a video of stringing synthetic gut/multifilament with a drop weight and floating clamps?

    Yes, I clean my clamps every so often. I've been stringing for over 2 years. It's just stringing synthetic gut/multis that scares me with my stringer. I plan to upgrade to a nicer 6 point mount in the future, just not any time soon because I'm not playing much tennis. It's not so much the...

    [Request] Can anyone post a video of stringing synthetic gut/multifilament with a drop weight and floating clamps?

    I have a the basic 2 point mount Gamma X-2 drop weight stringer and stringing synthetic gut/multifilaments have been unpredictable for me and that's because the string stretches and so the drop weight keeps dropping after leveling the drop weight. In the end it's caused me to sometimes have a...

    How do I know if a monofilament is going to act like a synthetic guy (strings move and creak)

    I thought Evolution was some form of poly because poly-amides lol, interesting strings to try though. I usually do a hybrid or full poly though

    How do I know if a monofilament is going to act like a synthetic guy (strings move and creak)

    Ahhhh thanks for the information! So polyester/co-poly are the only ones that don't misalign after a hit! I don't mind the misalign though I'd buy synthetic gut or multifilaments at that point because they're usually softer in feel

    How do I know if a monofilament is going to act like a synthetic guy (strings move and creak)

    I recently bought Diadem Evolution Strings (Polyamide Monofilament) and learned that monofilaments can act like synthetic gut/multi-filaments where the strings will misalign after hitting a ball and when you move the strings backs they make the creaking sound. I've also talked to some people who...

    How do you return/deal low bouncing serves/tips?

    I hope that helps, also if you're going to attack with a high forehand/backhand be sure you're loading onto the correct leg. I'm right handed so high forehands I would load onto my right leg, backhand I would load with my left. If you're left handed you'd load the opposites

    How do you return/deal low bouncing serves/tips?

    I've been playing some sets recently and people with "no pace" serves are some of the trickiest people to play because the ball dies in no man's land after one bounce. Even if I'm waiting inside of the baseline to return, the ball after the bounce is really low, like shin high. Anyone have any...

    What are some translucent polyester strings

    I have a set of Diadem Evolution that I'm going to try out later this month. They are very translucent and blue but I don't think they're the strings that I saw on the other person's racquet. It definitely was not synthetic gut surprisingly because it felt like poly/monofilament

    What are some translucent polyester strings

    I've been seeing people with clear light blue poly strings but they don't know what the string is because they have their stringer put it in. I don't know these people either so I can't follow up with them. Can anyone help me out with identifying some translucent polyester strings currently in...

    What do you guys think about this Starting Mains method (start 1 off from center)

    Hey! Great video btw, I'm a huge fan of your videos! I really enjoyed this video as it was a nice solution to the handle bar getting in the way of the drop weight but what I'm wondering is if starting one position to the right of the center is bad for the racquet since now the machine will be...

    What do you guys think about this Starting Mains method (start 1 off from center)

    With the normal drop weight at some point the handle of the tennis racquet probably will get in the way of the drop weight, so Mr10sStringer's solution was to start one off the center main instead of the dead center when stringing. What do you guys think of this and would it be bad for my...
