    Broke MonoGut twice in one set. Done with this delicate junk.

    I’ve had challenges with Monogut ZXP mains as well. As a cross though, there is literally nothing that lasts longer with consistent playability (as long as pre-stretches prior). I even reuse “old” ZXP because it never notches (except against ZXP mains, nothing else dents it). I have >100 hours...

    New Asics Court FF 2

    Don't mind the red...the green is a bit too "Irish green" for me. Still waiting for any reasonable sale on these shoes -- they've been out almost a year and I still haven't found anything reasonable. Oh well....

    Does prestretchhelp break in strings.

    It makes a massive difference on Ashaway Monogut ZX/ZX Pro and certainly reduces the break-in time. Same thing with Kevlar...pre-stretching manually definitely reduces tension loss and boards feeling. Doesn’t eliminate it but shortens it span considerably Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    What could the USTA do to increase participation...

    Took me quite a while to finally land on a USTA team...if you don't know captains or any "influential" team participants at your level it can be challenging. I have found the USTA section folks not all that helpful either. In the end, I got onto a team after being "spotted" by an influencer...

    Week 3 of Nationals is a big one - 18+ 4.0 and 4.5, 40+ 3.0 and 3.5

    I'm a little surprised the texas high schooler 3.5 didn't get double bumped to 4.5. He will do well at 4.0 in 2020.

    When do you expect USTA ratings to come out?

    Out of curiosity, will a D rating convert to C around that time as well?

    How to stop blisters and bruises?

    If your toenails are getting bruised/damage, you probably need a better fitting shoe. I have narrow feet and I think the Barricade's simply had too large of a toe box for me...used them for 4-6 months and completely wrecked my feet (lost 4 toenails and completely hammered one). I switched to...

    Your favourite socks

    My experience has been that the Thorlo Court Edges hold up like no sock I've ever had (including Feetures Elite Max Cushion). However, if you have wide feet they may not work best as they seem to run quite narrow. Here is a run-down on things: 1. Padding: Thorlo has considerably more padding...
