    Bad Reviews for new Adidas Barricade?

    Just saw that TW listed the new Adidas Barricade 18 shoes. I'm pretty sure these are new shoes for 2020? But when you click on "Customer Reviews," there are quite a few reviews already there from 2018/19. And overall, those reviews seem pretty negative. Are these reviews for the correct...

    Yonex Brandography during the same week Wilson announces the new Pro Staff?

    Not sure if this is the write place to put this or not... I love TW and the Brandography stuff they create. In fact, I've been looking forward to a Yonex one for a while as it's a brand I've always wanted to learn more about. Also, I think every other Brandography piece they've done has been...

    Can an intermediate player use an "advanced player's racquet"?

    I'm a 3.0-3.5 player who's taken some time off from the game, but I'm starting to play more again... I'm looking for a new racquet, and I've always liked racquets on the smaller end (98 sq. in. or less), with good weight, that are head light, and have lots of flex. A racquet that fits this...

    Football is back... Make your predictions here.

    Football season starts this week (Aug. 30). Let's keep it simple: Make you prediction about who will win the Super Bowl, and who will be National Champions. If you'd like, you can explain your choice, or just list who you think will be on top. NFL: Steelers-Roethlisberger will have...

    Trying to build a good tennis DVD library...

    I'm want to start building my own tennis DVD library, which would include, obviously, classic and famous matches. I want to start slow, maybe five or six DVDs, and build from there. Obviously, I'm going to start with those classis Borg-McEnroe Wimbledon matches from the early '80s. Mac is...

    The inspirational Andre Agassi...

    I just finished watching (yet again) the Andre Agassi profile on "No Strings," that show on the Tennis Channel. Like I said, I've seen this program several times in the past, and yet I still get blown away by how generous and caring he seems. Honestly, it nearly brought me to tears, it was so...

    Which spelling do you prefer: "racquet" or "racket"?

    How do you prefer to spell the word, or have it spelled? Personally, I spell it "racquet." I suspect the other spelling was invented out of sheer laziness or ignorance, but I could be totally wrong about that. Just wondering...

    Head MicroGel Radical OS vs. Head Liquidmetal Radical OS

    I am considering a new racquet and trying to decide between the MicroGel Radical OS and the Liquidmetal Radical OS. I currently still hit with the Head Ti Radical OS. Which of these racquets compares most similarly to the Ti Radical OS, or is there not much of a difference? I'm strongly...

    Worst actor to ever win an Academy Award?

    I bring this up because I keep seeing the commercial for "Daddy Day Camp" starring Cuba Gooding Jr. While fighting back the laughter (not because it's funny, but because it's embarassing), I'm reminded that he must be the worst actor to ever win an Academy Award. Even when I mention that...

    What are some good books about tennis?

    I'm asking about biographies, histories of the game, encyclopedias, and/or memoirs. I am NOT asking about instructional books or books written to make your game better. I ask because I'm in the process of reading "You Cannot Be Serious," the autobiography of John McEnroe. It's not a bad...

    Optimal tension for POG OS when ordering from TW?

    While in the process of ordering the POG OS from TW, I was asked to designate what tension I wanted the racquet strung at. According to TW during the ordering process, it listed the tension range from 55-70, and listed the optimal tention at 65. I have seen the racquet in my local tennis...

    Is there an old review for the POG OS?

    Obviously this is a polular racquet and one that has been around for a long time. I've read all the customer feedback comments, but was wondering if TW ever posted an official review of this racquet. If you could post a link to it, if it ever existed, then that would be awesome. Thanks...
