    String option to compensate for low power racquet

    I love the feel ( I guess the combined weight, balance, mojo, secret sauce, etc.) of my old Head Extreme Team OS. BUT, because I’m ancient and getting slower and weaker I need more power than I’m getting from the low-medium powered Head as it exists. Please give me some string options...

    The Decline of Proper Cushioning

    Prince T9 Roadster--best cushioned shoe I ever had. This goes back several shoe generations but I still remember how comfy they were. Closest in near past would be one of the Asics gel shoes. It's the age-old problem with everything from autos to tennis racquets and shoes: just when you find...

    2-back doubles: neutral vs aggressive shot?

    If it's 3.5 or lower, throw up those lobs; overheads typically are not a consistent shot at that level. If it's 4.0 and up still try some lobs if you can hit really good deep, top spin on them and if not use the other suggestions already given.

    Lost to a pusher.

    To JackB1, KineticChain, NorCal and others who defended the honor of us pushers against the Startzels of the tennis world, I thank you and will continue to frustrate and beat those who don't think we are "real" tennis players. Sincerely, Lobman

    Old guy that Cheats on score, Holy Cow

    As one of those "old farts" referred to by some of you, I've observed as much "cheating" behavior by "young farts" as by my age group. Me thinks some of you may be generalizing without solid data.

    String Tension and Spin Relationship

    To the degree that the "spiny" strings, such as Big Hitter Black 7, provide more spin, how does string tension effect that spin? If you are trying those strings hoping for more spin, do you string looser or tighter or does it really matter?

    Irvin--thanks much. Asics inside dimensions: 15 1/2 in. X 10 1/2 in. Wilson: 14 1/4 in. X 10 3/8. (Forgive my stupidity; don't know what you're doing but I appreciate your help.)

    Low, low tensions. 30lbs feels great. 20lbs pretty good, too

    Have been playing for a couple of years with a Wilson Cirrus BlX one (118 sq. in.) strung at 44. Works for my game (see my moniker) and my volleys seem to be better--crisper, accurate placement, as Lee D noted above. Have always played with relatively low tensions but I would be game to go...

    What tension for similar playability when changing racquets

    Stringers and others with suggestions, I will appreciate your advice. My goal is to have as close to the same playability/feel in a new racquet as I have in my current one. Data I assume are relevant: current racquet--Wilson Cirrus BLX One: 118" head; 16 x 19 string pattern; 14" mains; 55-65...

    Mixed Doubles

    Anybody top this experience?: Playing 7.0 mx.; my partner and I both 3.5. Opponents are a strong 4.0 guy and 3.0 lady. Close first set we lose 6-4. Opponents come out for second set and, no exaggeration, the 3.0 lady goes into the alley and in the extreme back corner. She stays there the...
