    I Want A 120 MPH Serve

    I don't think there are any 120 mph servers at our club. There is a fireballer but I measured his serve with the Ball Coach https://www.pocketradar.com/products/ball-coach-radar standing behind him and he hit 106. Entirely possible I didn't radar his fastest serves. And no I don't say how...

    Nope I'm using a Wilson Ultra XP 100S. It's sort of like a Babolat Aero but super stiff but 16 x 15 so the string bed is softer I do love those 85-93 frames 19 mm beam frames though!! I haven't tried Kev/ZX on those but I will Cheers

    me. 35 lbs Kev/ZX. So far my fave string combo. Lots of spin, zero arm or elbow pain, good power with the ZX

    Yep got the MC 95 and 110. Both fun sticks. Haven't strung with Kev/ZX yet though

    In praise of Kevlar/ZX hybrid!!!

    And I use it strung at 35 lbs Kev/ 35 lbs ZX. And it WORKS beautifully for me. Spin, control, decent power. But it's not for everybody and that's fine. It doesn't hurt my sensitive arm, shoulder, wrist. I do hit pretty hard and serve in the high 80's - mid 90's So USPTARF97 tried it and...

    Timeline for racquet-caused injury

    Sorry I misunderstood. I bought some used racquets and played with one that had old poly at about 60 lbs. Took me all of 2 hours to wreck my wrist, shoulder and elbow.

    Timeline for racquet-caused injury

    Tough question. Took me over 6 months, lowered my tension permanently from 60ish lbs to 40ish lbs max. Once I discovered the Flexbar and used it 3 weeks later I was up to 95% of normal. So...it could take months

    BTW I had a good session Saturday. Although I've not fully recovered from my shoulder injury (I would say 95% recovered) I hit a 95 mph serve and several others above 90mph. That's my 3rd fastest recorded serve. The others were 98 mph 2 summers ago and 96 6 months ago. And it was hit with...

    I got 5 1/2 sets from TW of Ash Kev 18 - $5 each - while I was waiting for my 110 M reel of Ash Kev 18 from the UK (took slightly over a month) At that price 1/2 sets are a darn good deal I think

    Thanks could be Shroud, although it's still snapping back I think . Could be just me being sloppy. And I'm the same way on the launching. I changed my forehand stroke per my coach and it can fly on me. But when it works watch out - tons of pop and spin Talk soon

    In praise of Kevlar/ZX hybrid!!!

    Thanks my friend! LOL Haloween stick is a good description of it Interesting on the high tension Kevlar. Odd thing, the first day I used it I was hitting unbelievable shots! Even since just merely really good. Is it possible that the spin decreases somehow after the first 3-4 hours?
