    Another good one from Jeff

    I know Tae but have never taken a lesson with him (really havent taken lessons period). Maybe I take a couple to see what Lock & Roll is all about. I see him instructing kids but not as many hacker adults.

    Wilson Eco-Friendly Rackets

    What Wilson should do RE: the whole tree planting thing is NOT pass that cost on to the consumer. That should be a CSR expense if they see it as being important/worthwhile and want to be a good corporate partner and citizen. There should also be some sort of recycling program for old rackets...

    NTRP Nationals - Surprise AZ - Who will be here?

    Surprise, AZ is an OK spot for USTA nationals (I've been there for 2 different Nationals events now). Plenty of courts, clean facility, good lights. The courts play slow and promote a significant bounce, so those that hit groundies and serves with a lot of spin, expect the effect to be...

    Wilson Eco-Friendly Rackets

    I think I like the "naked" look but who knows until you see them in person. RE: v8 blades -- NO! I dont want them to release anything new because then I will inevitably demo, like, and end up buying more rackets LOL

    Wilson Eco-Friendly Rackets

    I do wonder where they add the weight to account for the reduction from no paint/clear and how that might affect the balance of these rackets relative to a painted one.

    Wilson Eco-Friendly Rackets

    Last winter they had the Triniti club packs on sale (60 balls in a big cardboard box, I think) for <$75 IIRC. I was going to buy to use as hitters/hopper balls but decided against as I already had a couple cases of Pro Penns around. The Triniti balls play ROCK hard but do seem to last. They...

    Wilson Eco-Friendly Rackets

    So, I receive an email from Wilson this morning featuring their limited edition "naked" line. No paint, dyes, or packaging so COGS should be lower than their existing rackets. They also used algae-based plastics to improve biodegradability. But, I figured due to "exclusivity", they would simply...

    NTRP Nationals - Surprise AZ - Who will be here?

    Oops - catching up to this thread now. I was there competing in the 4.0MD group. It was a lot of fun but not a huge fan of the fast four format. Maybe in the future they can do the final rounds (SF and F) as normal full matches?

    Good tennis ball collector?

    Thanks all -- I was able to pickup a lightly used Gamma Rollerhopper (Jedi Master posted it above) for a decent price. It will serve as a great gift.

    Who has a Geau Axiom Tennis Bag?

    I don't think there are any discounts currently (since prelaunch was done at end of Dec) but maybe email the company to check? Also, if you are really active on social media maybe there is an opportunity to serve as a brand influencer/ambassador? https://geausport.com/pages/contact And just FYI...

    Good tennis ball collector?

    Thanks -- I'll would definitely buy used but it appears like you can't find these new anymore from any retailer. Gamma doesn't list them on their site anymore either.
