    synthetic grips >>

    I remember when they came out & thought finally a replacement for top-end leather grips eg. fairway and even the black dunlop leather grips with dunlop printed all over it (nice & tacky) and absorbed moisture well also. only thing they were kinda 1/2 way there, but now I feel they blow away...

    Jack Kramer "firm-flex" racket >>

    my fav. racket of all time looked like a Trabert,Mckay or Smith Auto. had a short "flake" . only difference it had the Kramer name and "Crown" on the shaft. it was also a "select" wood racket, with black trim. when I saw these Great frames for sale at Kmart for 19.99 in 1982 I knew the wood...

    'quality control" >>

    with rackets has always been kinda on & off. I was just thinking, from 1965 to 1981 I played the Kramer "firm-flex" Auto. I only had three frames that were just AWESOME in playability; you know a "grade above" what I was used to buying and using. Everything about them was there ! the last one I...

    the luxury of a "BIG" bag >>

    I recently bought a Dunlop 10-pack Aero-Gel bag and how nice it is to have room for everything and more, I only bring one racket when I play, but the room I have for water, balls towels and clothes and more room to spare. I have for years used plastic bags and racket covers to carry my stuff...

    been waitik ng for a Prestige like this for a long time >

    since 1988, everything that followed was a dud, maybe the i-prestige was okay, (no CAP and too light). I added a strip of lead under the CAP almost the full length of the hoop & a strip of lead at the botom grommet & lead 3 inches on each side of the throat. had it strung with NXT Control sixty...

    Luxilon Adrenaline 16 String >>

    I'm so pleased with this string, that I won't try any of the other offerings from luxilon, except I'm wondering about the 17 GA. version. has anyone tried both ? I'm guessing the 17 GA will be more responsive. I've used nat.gut for decades and luxilon blows it out of the water ! seems like...
