    Not really. It's just that your post was useless on top of being mildly misogynistic. Some of the young women playing would beat you in tennis and/or pickle. They aren't just objects for you to look at. Bet you're gross looking.

    Cool, we got sexism and ageism covered. Who wants to up the ante? Don't let me down. I know we are just at the tip of the offensive iceberg.

    Basically all racquet sports are fun and action packed. That's why people like them. You're making the argument implicitly that pickleball is not fun, and not action packed. Or at least that it doesn't "seem" to be. Here would be my suggestion: search your local meetup groups and/or Facebook...

    I'm not saying it's impossible your group would beat mine, but I'd say perhaps unlikely. Do you compete in tournaments?

    Yes, you have to dink. (In doubles). That doesn't mean that there is not room for immense power and shot making. Here's why you have to dink: you want to be at the net with your partner. If you are on the serving team, you can't serve and volley. You can't come to the net until you've hit a...

    I also prefer singles to doubles for the same reason. I like to "get there" -- to, you know, that endorphin rush. Sweaty. Burnt. Crushed. Exhausted. Haha. A normal tennis session for me is 2 hours of doubles followed by 2 hours of singles. You definitely burn more calories in tennis, but...

    Bumping because I have nothing else to do. There is tons of spin at higher levels. Spin is really important on serves, approach shots, dinks. Net play is much more fun in pickleball than tennis. You know when you play doubles for an hour and you finally get that magical 20+ ball rally? Yeah...

    Gave it a long demo session before 93p. Not able to generate the same speed, power, spin, or connection to the ball with it. Actually like the speed pro 360 more than the mid. But 93p trumps both.

    The Prince Phantom 93P is a gift to us from TW - My Review/AMA

    If you note mhkeuns' response it's really not irrelevant. I think myself and other players will have different/better footwork with 93p than other racquets, which may cause more wear on shoes. I know I'm sliding way more on hardcourt than I used to. I'm also running better and faster than I...

    Not to derail thread at all, but I'm just curious if any of you slide on hardcourts. Burning through my kswisses faster than full bed poly in the 93p. Open to suggestions.

    Patellar ( kneecap) injury

    This really sucks, but you're going to be fine. It's a setback, not the end of your tennis playing. http://articles.latimes.com/1989-04-01/sports/sp-870_1_leg-injury You got this.

    Agree. I doubt many people are breaking full bed poly in the 93p before cutting and restringing. Been playing around too much with different strings to give a great answer as to exact length of time before breaking. You'll get your money's worth.

    Volleys: Can you see the spin of the ball as it crosses the net?

    Exactly. To add to this, more often than not you probably know (or should know) the available shots you're leaving your opponent and should have a good feel for what they are most likely to send back your way given their tendencies. When your opponent is probably going to send a defensive...

    Volleys: Can you see the spin of the ball as it crosses the net?

    I think this is probably more semantics than anything. Someone who has been volleying all their life is doing this, but they aren't ever thinking about it. I never consider the incoming spin, speed, angle. But of course I do a lot to compensate for those factors. I would explain those things...

    They can't. That's why they are amateurs:)

    I restrung one - didn't even occur to me to ask. Didn't have a problem. Edit: TW also extended my demo by an additional 5 days when I e-mailed asking for more time, as an FYI.

    Volleys: Can you see the spin of the ball as it crosses the net?

    That's not exactly what I'm saying so I will clarify. I'm saying that for myself, my hand-eye is good enough, and I'm fast enough, for it to not really matter at a recreational level. Very few players are coming at me with 120mph serves. I can adjust and I will absolutely know what kind of spin...

    Volleys: Can you see the spin of the ball as it crosses the net?

    I think one thing we are all failing to recognize is that professional baseball and tennis players really do, for the overwhelmingly majority of cases, have much better visual acuity than the rest of us. I actually don't doubt there are MLB batters who, whether they see the spin, or can...

    Was able to try out RS Lyon and Black Widow last night. Both strung single piece at 42 lbs. 1.20. Played 4 hours and change, switched between both every hour. Felt RS Lyon was soft and actually produced good/easy power. Black widow - really started to feel this in the wrist. Definitely...

    Wait - are you seriously going to project that hard? You made a ton of moronic statements about a real person. I'm trolling to point out the hypocrisy in you calling Tsitsipas rude when you are being even more rude. And then you call me a keyboard warrior... Is this real life? Are you that...

    Don't know what you're talking about but I'm very sorry if I grabbed your towel the wrong way. I care very deeply about my post count. Thank you for providing me another opportunity to log one, while also showing off your super cool and very superior post count and length of time on the...

    My comprehension is just fine. It obviously has nothing to do with his voice making it funny... If you don't know your post insinuates that, perhaps your writing skills are about as sharp as your second doubles D3 tennis ones.

    Oh my bad! I'm so sorry if I offended the guy who quoted a guy saying that Tsitsipas looks like a sex offender, has poor strokes, and looks bad in his clothing. On top of that, you are making character assumptions about him based on how he grabs a towel. I'm reallllllly sorry man. Can you...

    Volleys: Can you see the spin of the ball as it crosses the net?

    Let me get this right. You want to stare at the ball, pick up on the rotation, and then decide if you want to open or close your racquet face. Bruh

    You have to play with people who hit the ball slower and with less spin.

    Well he better get a haircut ASAP! We can't have an athlete running around getting sweaty... and ... looking sweaty too! Will you join me in the fight to help the ball kids unionize? I also think it's horrible that they have to do the work they signed up for. If we could organize well enough...
