    Prince P-200 Racquet Stringer For Sale

    Finally parting ways with my BELOVED Prince P-200 Racquet Stringer. This stringer, as all of you know, is both a tank, and a VERY ACCURATE machine. It is a "constant pull" machine, which means that when you apply tension to a string, the machine keeps adjusting to the strings "stretchiness", so...

    Fed's racquet back in '02

    Was just watching the '02 Masters Series Paris match between Fed and Hewitt (which Hewy wins 4 and 3) and they showed a close up of Feds racquet. I've read here that Fed was using the Hyper Carbon 6.1 back then - which indeed this racquet I saw on tv looked like. Was this indeed a paintjob of...

    Racquet balance Terminology

    when reading about racquet balance, I frequently come across the word "points". It unremarkably refers to how much head-heavy or head-light a racquet is, but I dont understand the length of a "point". Can someone help me with this please ?

    Difference in Hybrids

    I know that if I put poly in the mains I can get more spin (less string movement). But what does it do if I put Gut in the mains and poly in the crosses ? Would the racquet play like an all-gut job, or would the poly actually accentuate the spin potential more than if there was no poly at all ???

    Tennis Elbow is gone....

    Made a post about this a few weeks ago. Thanks to all those who gave their input. Here the formula that finally worked for me. #1: Teaching left handed as much as I could. I'm a teaching pro and I fed about 50% of my lessons left handed to give that right elbow as much as possible. #2...

    Adidas Lendl Competition

    Anyone know where I can find the old Adidas Lendl Competition shoe. Not the Lendl Supreme, the all leather shoe which Adidas released last summer all over the web, but the leather/mesh model that Lendl wore from around '84-'89 before he got dumped by Adidas and went to Mizuno.

    Tennis Elbow cure ?

    Have had tennis elbow since Oct. when I tinkered with the wrong racquet(s) too long. Now I cant get rid of it because I'm a teaching pro and always on court. Have read and tried EVERYTHING, so don't give me any new ideas because I've done it all - except rest. My question is this......Could...

    The Next Big Thing

    Seeing what the Polyester revolution has done for those looking for spin control, I predict the next big thing will be a string with even more resistance to moving on the string bed COMBINED with a thinner gauge - perhaps 19 or 20. Now THAT would be some real spin potential with awesome feel...

    Did Fed change String Patterns ?

    From what I have read about Poly stringing and the way Fed strings his frames, he used to have Poly in the mains and gut in the crosses. But now it looks as if he has reversed this.. I also saw in Racquet Sports Industry Mag that he and Hewitt both put the Gut in the Mains and the poly in the...

    String-a-lings and tension advice please...

    I'm new to the whole Poly hybrid scene, so here are a couple of issues I'd like advice on: Issue #1: I think I've seen Federer w/ String-a-lings in part of his string job, somewhere above the middle of the frame. Does he do this to keep the mains from shifting about or is it a durability...

    In search of spin

    I've been reading a lot about the spin that people are getting from poly's. Is it common knowledge now that poly's provide best spin as of today's technology ???? Here's a different angle....if cost and durability were no issue, what is the best string for maximum spin ??? Any takers ??

    Just admit it to yourselves...

    The pros are using the same racquets we do with very little exception to that rule !!! I'm getting so tired of all this banter about Federer this and Federer that. He uses the exact same frame that you can pull off a shelf in a pro shop. Some of you guys act like there is this secret society...
