    Stringing the V-Engine Mid-

    Yeah, I have a question. I was considering making the switch to a V-Engine frame, but then I got to thinking. I have one of those lame stringers with the two-point clamp action. I was picturing it in my head, and that little clamping thing won't exactly fit right with a v-shaped throat. Is it...

    nPS 95 demo?

    I am looking to purchase an nPS 95, but I noticed that there is a demo nPS that's ten bucks cheaper. So it's simply ten dollars less because it has the word demo on it? Or am I imagining things? I assume having the word demo printed on it will not affect the racquet's playability. Or...

    Seattle at wintertime-

    Natural gut and fraying-

    I string my own rackets, but I will have to hope three strung sticks last me for the duration of my upcoming three weeklong vacation, since I cannot bring my stringer for the ride. I plan on throwing the usual Tecnifibre Maxipower in the mains, but I am wondering if throwing the natural gut in...

    PS 6.1 Classic VS. Slazenger Henman Pro Braided

    At present, I am enjoying the Pro Staff 6.1 Classic. It is a fine racket, as its [i]Classic[i] title states, but I am considering laying it down for a while. It would appear that I am getting too old to handle such a demanding racket, and I need to build my strength a bit before I go back to the...
