Last year I had something similar happen but the Captain was obviously wrong and trying to give his guys a...

    Prince Exo3 Tour 100 orange chrome haters rejoice

    I love the racquet but hate the orange chrome. And I'm not the type to accept compromise. I am also going to do a set in flat black to look like what I consider 'standard' grommets.

    How I solved my knee problem

    I play several hours per week and recently experienced knee pain completely out of the blue. Came home from playing a match, didn't notice an injury or pain... until I hit the stairs at my house and my right knee burst into pain. I could not lift my body up a single stair with that leg! It...

    tennis racquet measurement template

    Worked this up as an easy way to find the spec's on my racquets. Measures points head-light / head-heavy, beam width in millimeters. Just print it out full scale (select "scaling" = "none" when printing from Adobe Reader) on 11x17 paper, add a fulcrum and you're ready to go. Thought I would...
