    Gotta give you kudos, that is one pretty cat. BEAUTIFUL eyes! (And I'm a dog person)

    Nadal and Coria bring the best out of one another

    There are a lot of things in tennis past that I get nostalgic over. The clam digger/capri pants/pirate bottoms aren't one of them.

    Klip $29. VS Tonic $36. VS Touch $42. Which to buy?

    @Frankc I have such a box in such a closet. Currently I am pursuing my dream, reels of TiMO 18 which is no longer available in the US thanks to our friends at Wilson. I have a stockpile of Pacific gut in various grades and gauges. My most prized is some of the old gold gut in 18 gauge. I...

    Head tgk238.2 vs tgk238.5, which one is stiffer ?

    @vsbabolat will know for sure, he is the Head expert round these parts

    STAN WAWRINKA FRAME

    @Nostradamus - in regard to your question about building up the butt cap ala Kafelnikov or Gasquet - it can be easily done and done without even taking the stock grip off. I recently purchased a Yonex 95 off the large auction site. The grip had been modified like the ones mentioned above...

    Klip $29. VS Tonic $36. VS Touch $42. Which to buy?

    Alas, @Frankc, I think Pacific is done in the US for the foreseeable future. If you look at Tennis Warehouse Europe, not natural gut there either. The only place I've seen their natural gut referenced is their website (defunct?) and the prices there are, shall we say, prohibitive. Sorry...

    Rios: "Agassi got busted for doping 4 times, but the ATP covered it up"

    @Cashman yeah you’re right, what do facts matter? And I'm not the one telling everyone else how "wrong" they are.... Own a mirror?

    Rios: "Agassi got busted for doping 4 times, but the ATP covered it up"

    Very simply put, you are ignorant of meaning, but at least you're "woke" and politically correct; although I don't know that I'd be proud of either.

    Rios: "Agassi got busted for doping 4 times, but the ATP covered it up"

    Maybe because nobody asked him til now? :) And I gotta say, between the two of them, I believe Rios is by far the more honest.

    Rios: "Agassi got busted for doping 4 times, but the ATP covered it up"

    You obviously need some Afrin. Gee, I must have missed something.....when did South America become a race unto itself? And the prevalence of drug cartels, drug smuggling and drugs in general in South America has to do with race? So crime is a race? So then being anti-crime is racist by your...

    How much time before a match should you string?

    a month, two months, maybe a quarter, possibly half a year....

    How much time before a match should you string?

    For me personally, it doesn’t matter. One night, one day, one week.

    How much time before a match should you string?

    I've strung for a WTA tournament here locally. Players' requests are as varied as the players. Some want them ASAP off the machine, some want them done that morning, some want them done the night before. The only right answer is the one you have.

    Babolat Grommets

    I have to say that it looks almost as if Babolat "engineered" their grommets to be as complicated and as big a PITA as possible. I'd have to add that for the majority of their rackets, they sure didn't take stringing them into consideration which is criminal considering they're a string...

    Volkl V-Cell

    @A_Instead - Amen! The Volkl 9 has gone steadily downhill since the C-9 which in retrospect was probably the best racket Volkl ever had. Yes, even better than the C-10!

    Klip $29. VS Tonic $36. VS Touch $42. Which to buy?

    It's very hard to give an objective answer to a subjective question. For me and of your choices, VS in either of its offerings was better than Klip, but that's just me. I have some people who like Klip better. Yes, Klip is the real deal. Their gut is from Australia and is made by them. It...

    Leather piece between starting clamp and racquet head guard. Good idea?

    Yep, I use that. I got mine from @Richard Parnell 's place.

    How Would You Compare These Two Yonex Frames?

    @Thiem's 1HB - near as I can tell, in mm's, 676.275. Using a Babolat Sensor, there was some shrinkage. I measured two Yonex VC98's and they came up nearly the same.

    @WilPro does the "double" dampener have any affect?

    @Thiem's 1HB, yes, when I get home, I'll measure my VC98's.

    Luxilon Natural Gut String = Wilson Natural Gut string

    No, Luxilon is distributed by Wilson in the United States but is an independent company headquartered in Belgium. At one point, Wilson's branded natural gut was made by Babolat. Wilson may have ended that relationship and is rebranding Luxilon natural gut. I do not know for sure. There are...

    "THWACK" or "SMACK", which ball contact sounds better?

    @ThiemPlayer, let me say to begin with that I have never strung spaghetti nor have I hit with one. From what I remember, the string bed has less to do with tension than it had to do with what was attached to the string bed: namely nylon string, chord, tape and plastic tubing. The racket...

    How Would You Compare These Two Yonex Frames?

    Every possible string? Really? ;) I think the VC98 has a generous sweet spot. Racket head speed = stability IMO. The faster you can swing a racket, the more impact you have on the ball. At 323 grams strung (weight courtesy TW), the VC98 is not a lightweight by any stretch. It has...
