    Really Soft Strings

    What are some really soft, almost mushy strings that are relatively cheap? I'm talking about a string like the Head RIP Control string.

    Batman Comics

    Oh...do you know why there are two comics if they're the exact same? More profit?

    Batman Comics

    Yeah, I know there's more, but from what I have heard from people, those two are the most popular. What are the differences between the two? (There has to be some, or they'd be the same, right?)

    The_Dark_Knight: I can see by your name that you are a Batman fan. Do you read the comics? If so, which is better: Batman or Detective Comics? (This is what I want to know about the most.)

    Batman Comics

    I've decided to start reading and collecting Batman comics and am wondering if anyone on the board could help me choose what to get: Batman or Detective Comics? There are other Batman comics (any suggestions I wouldn't mind), but I would really like to focus on the two mentioned before (which I...

    Serve toss disguise - Sampras Only

    Besides the obvious answer of practice and stop trying to find quick fixes, is there a special toss placement (as in how far into the court, how left or right, etc.) or something else that one has to have to disguise one's serve placement and spin used?

    Offensive Slice vs Defensive Slice

    x Southpaw x: Would you happen to have any video of Federer hitting a slice backhand? NoBadMojo: I was refering to the slice backhand that Federer seems to use a "chop-like" motion to put extreme backspin on the ball as a "change-up" from a topspin backhand or even a driving slice backhand...

    Offensive Slice vs Defensive Slice

    So how does Federer do this highly-spun, change-of-pace slice with a severse chop-like motion? How is his swing throughout the stroke? Could someone just explain his slice backhand?

    Offensive Slice vs Defensive Slice

    I've been working on my slice backhand lately with my coach regarding me dropping my racquet during my swing instead of "pushing" my racquet like a flat block (almost volley-like) along with leaning forward onto my lead foot to hit the slice backhand. Am I hitting more of an offensive slice...

    Forget about racket pjs! How 'bout them kicks?

    I know this seems a bit off topic, but how are the soles of shoes different for each surface and why (as in what does the different texture of the sole benefit, etc.)?

    federers forehand

    andreroddick155 (or anyone that knows): Would you care to explain how to hit a forehand like Federer, since you've been able to see lessons showing Federer hit?

    Different Versions of the Tour 90

    hummer23: I actually find the one with the silver Wilson logo easier and lighter to swing, which also accounts for the hollow feeling I get and don't like. I'm guessing this is due to bad quality control and tolerance though. PrestigeClassic: Do you know why Wilson changed the cosmetics...

    Different Versions of the Tour 90

    So would the feeling of one racquet being lighter and hollower be due to specification tolerance levels being a bit extreme? I think I've read on this board that Wilson is pretty lousy at keeping tight specifications for racquets. I could be wrong. Thanks for everyone's reponses.

    Different Versions of the Tour 90

    I have multiple Wilson ProStaff Tour 90 racquets (non-nCoded) and have just recently noticed that the paintjob on one of them is differnet from the other two (I bought them all separately). The throats of the two similar racquets have a large Wilson signature in silver on one side while the...

    Tour 90 Sweetspot

    How would grip size determine weight? I have 2 Tour 90 racquets in L4 and 1 Tour 90 racquet in L3. Does grip size have any effect on the sweetspot or anything else?

    How to take balls off the bounce?

    When hitting a one-handed backhand on the rise, would one use the same principles mentioned in this thread or is this more for the forehand? It seems that when I try to hit on the one-handed backhand on the rise, I don't get enough topspin and always hit the tape of the net. I'm not very sure of...

    Tour 90 Sweetspot

    So it seems like most are writing on this thread that putting lead tape at 2 and 10 o'clock on the racquet head would be the best for raising the sweetspot a little higher on the string bed. With my wear pattern in mind, how much lead tape should I put and how should I do so (layers, etc.)...

    Tour 90 Sweetspot

    Where exactly is the the sweetspot for the Wilson ProStaff Tour 90 (non-nCoded)? The wear pattern on my Tour 90 is of the 5 middle cross strings that come out of the pws and somewhat above. Should I use lead tape to adjust the sweetspot? Where should I put it? How much should I put? What is the...

    To be wiry

    I'm around 5'9-10" range, I think, and weigh 140 lbs. I'm somewhat skinny. I have pretty strong quads and calf muscles. My right arm is a lot more developed than my left. But, just about everything else is not very defined, although not weak. What work-out regime would be best to become stronger...

    Prince Synthetic Gut w/Duraflex vs. Gamma Revelation

    Which of the two in 17 gauge is better for a crisp feeling (not extremely soft and mushy) yet have as much feel as possible? Also, which is better for durability compared to price? I tend to break strings after about a week or two playing around 5-6 hours a week (now only about 2-3). I do use a...

    Multiple Racquet String Tension

    So with four racquets, two racquets should have the same tension, one two pounds lower, and one two pounds higher? Is that correct?
