    I have no interest in a banana but if they release that PJ that Rafa has been using recently maybe I'll give it a try. As we know, the PJ brings the stifness down. :sneaky:

    Diary of a Racketaholic

    I watch his videos for the entertainment. He will occasionally drop some nuggets of knowledge. The racquet reviews there are awful. He just needs to stop with those. I've called his store a few times. He's a nice guy and I like that his personality comes across in his videos rather than trying...

    Been using simple synthetic gut strings for years - any reason to try something new?

    I tried it both ways with HyperGSoft 17 and TNT 17. I preferred the HGS in the mains and the TNT in the cross. I've tried a few different string combos I like now: HyperG or HGS 17g - This was my go to in all my racquets HGS 17 crossed with TNT 17 - Not sure if I notice a huge diffference from...

    I'm saying it half jokingly because I know TennisSpin isn't popular on TT but it's not like he's breaking frames on purpose. He's mentioned it several times in his earlier videos about how many broken Bananas he sees.

    That's because according to TennisSpin they all crack. If you watch some of his videos he has so many broken bananas that folks have brought in. It's pretty consistent across his videos so there has to be something to it.

    I shouldn't have been playing on this day but didn't want to cancel. I had played the night before, didn't go to bed early enough, and the heat and humidity hit us like a ton of bricks after the cold front we just had. My legs were like cement and my arms didn't feel like moving. I'm not going...

    You ever have one of those days where you just don't have the energy to play but go anyways because you had already scheduled it with one of your hitting partners? Well I had that happen to me this past Saturday morning. I tried using anything I had but couldn't get up the physical or mental...

    I read somewhere that Yonex Supergrap is very similar to the Wilson Pro OG. Do you think there are some differences between the 2?

    Been using simple synthetic gut strings for years - any reason to try something new?

    I'm giving something other than Poly a try as I'm not a string breaker. I don't have a lot of knowledge of syn gut so this may seem like a simple question. I have crossed one of my polys with Gamma TNT which I believe is a syn gut. In this instance, do I need to pay attention for the poly going...

    Adding to all this Primce talk, played doubles tonight with the Phantom 93P. What a fun stick to play with. It has much more power than I’d expect out of a thin beam like that. Also easier to play with than I was expecting for a 93” frame. If this thing was a 97/98” it would join the UT or v7...

    I did get the new Lacoste Bag (basically a rebranded TF bag). Figured I've had the same bag for 5 years now so it's time for a change. I love that I can easily access almost everything by only opening 1 zipper. It's basically 1 big compartment with dividers but feels more organized to me. The...

    The 2 guys I've mainly been playing singles with lately can both run. That's why I have to be able to win one off the 1st 2 sets (unless we do a 5 setter which is almost always in my favor). In all honesty I'm slightly better than both of them (my forehand being the difference) but they hustle...
