    Check out this ball machine contraption!

    glad that i found this, i designed plans for building one myself for the summer. but i think it is way to high for forehand and backhand practice. maybe try using a board where the ball drops to allow the ball to bounce higher to help with backhand. based on your specs, i think i need to adjust...

    Dunlop Force 98 Tour

    am I stupid?

    i have a 30+ year old head racquet. really hard to do heavy spin compared to toddays. they feel alot softer, i have had so many experience with tennis elbow, but older racquets never gave me any issue in that field. anywho, im also in search for comfortable, but far from the oldern feel. check...

    Pressureball tube, any experience?

    yea they work, don't own one myself though. i plan on a diy project of simply attatching a psi gauge to a 2 gallon pump sprayer. i'd rather risk messing around for the price of 1 tube. the problem i see with reviving balls is that after a few times, they lose pressure after one hitting...

    Prince O3 Tour Grommet (Midplus) where to find it?

    yea call them, and if you really like the racquet make sure to stock up on a few. or even call tw and see if they can get it for you.

    Could my grommets be breaking my strings?

    i've seen plenty of bad grommets breaking strings, its a 5 dollar investment, if you think that the issue it probably is worth changing it.

    Racquet Grip Replacement

    you should try overgrips, yonex supergap is a big favorite, i know its mine. if you are looking for a replacement to a standard grip and don't like overgrips then just find the one that was on your racquet already or pick a new one.

    How To Pressurize / Revive Old Tennis Balls...

    dunlop balls usually last me a long time. its probably the rubber prevents air flow at a better rate. also i don't know about the steel vessel, but with almost all other not mechanize ball pressurizer you will need to adjust the psi every couple of days. anyways i plan on getting a 2 gallon...

    A racquet for a beqinner

    well you have two options. buy any racquet you feel comfortable, get a good shock absorber and an overgrip. i would even suggest aluminum or titanium ones. a good shock absorber would be my bias opionion of Technifibre vibra clip. overgrip i suggest is yonex supergap, but you can buy any...

    Stability in 'tweeners'

    if 25-26" due to shorter length, less torque is applied in general. so better stability. if we are talking about standard, then shouldn't be much of an issue. a good tool is a good tool, but learning how to use a decent tool may be more important. but yea, lower levels won't be affected by...

    Racquet/Strings Harmony

    i don't think its worth researching, but i am sure it will bring light into physics of tennis. i don't think there would be much of a game changer to tennis unless humans become bionic and need better equipment. but as i said, its not going to be a breakthrough of anysort. science is already...

    throw it in a garbage bag of rice/bread or some other drying agent. although you shouldn't need to worry. no racquets that have a grommet should be harmed from a little water.

    Mikeler's Polys

    i figured you would say that. in my opinion though, it lacks the bite that i want. maybe if i try a smaller gauge it might give me enough bite, or maybe a hybrid will do me fine. thanks again.
