    Tournagrip paint jobs and blackouts

    Picture thread of all the tournagrip that gets mis-represented or blacked out. Background: I recently got an Instagram account and was immediately exposed to thousands of pics of pro players. I thought it was kind of interesting how many players use tournagrip but also how many use black...

    Mega Tac

    Just wondering when this will be available... playtests are interesting, can't wait for a super tacky grip. It is available elsewhere but I don't want to buy...elsewhere. Thanks for all you do!

    Do you lose more tension on the first string job?

    When stringing up a brand new racket, is it normal to lose more tension than if the racket has already been strung a few times? Here's the background for my question: I strung up my 2 brand new Speedport Blacks with the hole inserts about a couple weeks ago. I strung them at 63 with a...

    Counterpunch to a great backhand slice

    What is the best way to handle a great down the line backhand slice? I'm a 5.0 lefty, my backhand is better than my forehand. I've now lost to the same type of player 3 times in the past few months and I have no answers to the aggressive backhand down-the-line slice that stays low and skids...

    This piece of gear won me the match...

    No its not my shoes, not my racket, not my strings... I picked this up at my pro shop the other day. I had a long singles match in the heat of the day. I stuck it in my cooler and put it on my neck and head during the changeovers. It was awesome to bring my body temp down.... I have no doubt...

    It was ZO awful

    I know, I should have listened to the feedback, Gamma strings are poor. However I really wanted to try the ZO orange because I love polys. I put in the 17g string and voila, within 15 minutes it broke. $25.00 strings from big box retailer $10.00 to get it strung Breaking it in the...

    the speedport black whistle

    love the racket but can't stand the "whistle" it produces when I swing it. i'm borrowing it from a friend who lost the inserts. seems like the inserts would quiet the whistle sound but want to confirm.. any insight will be helpful.

    How about 2 different tensions for the crosses?

    Assuming friction on the crosses ends up reducing the actual tension vs. the dialed in tension, it seems logical that crosses at the top of a frame would be significantly tighter than crosses at the bottom of a frame... Anybody thoughts on increasing by 2-4lbs the bottom 5 or 6 crosses to...

    Any tips to speed up the last 3-4 crosses?

    Seems like I fly through the mains and most of the crosses. However towards the bottom of the racket, when everything is tight and the working space is small, it takes me forever to weave the last few crosses through. Any tips you guru's have to speed this up would be greatly appreciated.

    Tension variance in the mains

    I string 2 piece style on my prince. When I had both sides tied off for the mains, I ran my finger across like a guitar and noticed quite a bit of difference among the tensions per each string. The 4 middle strings were the loosest and they got tighter the further the main was from the...

    Bloody Toes

    I played 4 sets last night. Two tough sets in singles, then two more tough ones in doubles. Got home, took off my shoes, and realized the end of my sock was soaked with blood. It even stained the toe box of my shoes. Apparently one of my middle toes took a beating. Gross I know but how can...

    Russians poison again?

    With most of the Serbian team battling "the stomach flu" in Moscow, I wonder why there isn't an outcry to have them tested for poison right away. Haas waited 3 or 4months and they couldn't tell if it was poison or not. Pretty suspicious that the Serbian team is now sick, don't you think?

    Davis Cup...again?

    Was just thinking how Blake, Roddick, and the Bryans could possibly be hyped up about Davis Cup, again...already.... Do you folks honestly think they are amped to make a run this year to try and repeat? Or are they thinking, good lord I can't believe I have to start Davis Cup again...

    Anybody else have any issues with Topspin Cyber Power 17g breaking right near the top of the frame? Its just an unusual place for it to break. Same racket, same stringer (me). Anyone else have that issue?

    Spin from Crosses or Mains?

    Does the spin come from the string more via crosses or the mains? I like the spin created from my full poly job but want to try some other combo's. I'm thinking of trying Gut in as a hybrid but want to maintain my spin. What's best, gut mains or gut crosses to keep the best spin. I've...
