    DC 315 LTD (!!)

    It was amazing when you could pick up 4 Tec LTD's for less than the cost of a new premium frame :) Come on Tecnifibre!!!! Bring back those good ol' days!!!! In all honesty, it feels much better having less frames, and knowing them inside and out. I started going insane with all the different...

    Head IG Prestige 25 Year Anniversary

    Let's take it down to $175 shipped. This need to see some on court action!!! It has been sitting in a Prince bag forever and need to find its way into a Head bag :P My Tecnifibre LTD's have been telling me the Prestige is getting jealous.

    Lol, I am still mad that I couldn't get any on the release of these :( I did end up selling off all my extra old Tecs (long ago) I still have my 3 current 18m's (and they will die with me) I have 2 questions. @Irvin do you think the grommet eyelets will fit on the old LTD's...I have a bunch...

    T Fight 315?

    So, is it worth upgrading to the new LTDs just to post tons of pics on TT :) (now through IMGUR, Photobucket sucks and surely made a ton of threads utterly useless) Spring can't get here soon enough!!!

    Wilson Ultra Tour + Tape = Ultra Awesome

    Lol, that is awesome!!!! Well, it seems like you turned a bad situation into a great one!! Wilson should get you on the team for design, painting, and customizing their frames!!! IMO you improved it, the value should skyrocket....or at least when you step out on the court, you're opponents...

    Have you managed to end your racquetholism? Please share your advices

    There is a cure!!! (and I recently resisted the new Angell temptation...after looking at the website of course!!!) Watches :) That is the secret (just play tennis and find another distraction!!) I think we are just a group of passionate people who love this amazing game. Since most people...

    That's a man stick now!!!! :) Let us know how it plays!!!!

    T Fight 315?

    I have been doing so good on racquet buying abstinence since not frequenting Talk Tennis :) I better log off now before I end up with a new toy on its way to my house :P Someone get one of these and post up some racquet porn to try and fend off my racquet cravings....

    T Fight 315?

    I have missed my fellow TT'ers!!! I hope everyone is getting in plenty of court time with the Tec LTD's. I am going to the beach soon....expect some crazy pics of the LTD at the beach (I don't care if people think I am crazy taking pictures of tennis racquets at the beach!!! Life is short...

    Hesacore (hexagonal) grips

    Each racquet manufacturer (Wilson, Head, Yonex, Prince etc.) is different (kind of). For example, Head Prestige and Radical use what's called a "pallet system" for their handles. These are two pieces that are attached to the hairpin of the racquet, to make the handle. Wilson, uses PU Foam...

    T Fight 315?

    How much do you like that Alpha Gut? I think you might be better served with a different string. If you really want to unlock the "magic" Gut/poly is unbeatable (and ridiculously expensive...but life is short, and I think everyone should try it once...especially in an 18M) I highly recommend...

    Head Microgel Radical MP

    Lol, I will never sell my customized Microgel Radical (which is funny because I just sold my Zebra!!!) Although I sometimes sell off my frames, I don't ever want to be seen as a "seller" but instead, I like to be known as a Fanatic :) although slightly distracted by watches at the moment...

    T Fight 315?

    You're welcome!!! Have fun out on the courts!!!! Lol, the paintjob on the LTD's is beautiful....my 21 year old nephew, who doesn't play tennis, wants my 18m too :)

    Hesacore (hexagonal) grips

    I would try again. But, I would definitely send Gianluca another email, and explain what you want to accomplish. If there is a registered installer, you might want to reach out to them. There is a benefit to having someone who installs them professionally, interview you, find out what you...

    T Fight 315?

    Once you perfect the setup, you will be able to hang with anyone. Please post your unstrung/strung specs (static weight/balance) that you start out with. it will be a good number to reference, and document your journey with the frame. I have found the LTD's are playable stock, but they start...

    Post Pictures of your Racquets and Tennis Gear

    I am sure there are other competing photo sharing sites that will gladly allow me to post my pics!!! I can't stand the nonstop spamming of photobucket anymore (try to upload a pic, they kill you with pop up ads) so I agree with you. There is always someone else out there competing to get their...

    Post Pictures of your Racquets and Tennis Gear

    I am very careful with it!! I do have a regular IG Prestige as well also, but I haven't had the time to customize it up. I actually found it NOS, I was patient, and found it for a reasonable price (I have seen people trying to get over $200 for them...I am not that dedicated to do that...I...

    Hesacore (hexagonal) grips

    Well, since no one has any experience with these, I figured I would give them a try :) My experience so far: The owner @Gianluca Geremia has been awesome to deal with. I received them quickly and he was extremely helpful and answered all my questions. Installation wasn't extremely difficult...

    Cracked Racket :(

    If I recall correctly, Yonex uses foam handles (not pallets). If you cracked the handle, and someone here knows if there are pallets that fit. It would be cheap-ish to fix (if you do the work). But if you have to send it to a place to get a new handle molded on, you are going to pay around...

    The Dynacore's are fun! I am just over run with racquets!!! I woke up and my collection was out of control :) Hey @zapvor !!! Where have you been?!! Glad to see you back around!!! I had a Samurai that was a ton of fun to hit around with. I haven't had the opportunity to hit with any of...

    Völkl C10 Pro Club!

    You know TW posts strung specs (and an average of a few models). Did you weigh yours strung or unstrung? What was the exact weight and if there are strings, what strings/gauge are in it? (I would post a question in the "Ask TW" section if it is a concern. They have amazing customer service...
