    T-145II by Tremont Research?

    The two point mounting system keep getting loose during the stringing, before it feels as tight as can be but then Idk how it gets loose. Anyone experiences the same? How tight do you go for the allen key bolt?

    T-145II by Tremont Research?

    Ah I see, I'm only stringing with low tension for now (low 40s) to try it out, i hope its ok. Today took me 2h for a complete cleanish job (noticed a two misweaves on the last two crosses so its nit that significant, i can play with it) Weaving is so hard especially the lower half of the...

    By Wimbledon next year, Fed will be without his slam and weeks nr 1 records.

    That's fine but consecutive weeks as #1 which is the translation of unconditional and absolute domination of the tennis tour, is the true determinant of goat status. Try again Djokodal babbies

    How to become a 4.5 player?

    The fact that you assume Ian is heterosexual by default is very heteronormative, and dare i say extremely problematic in this day and age. But social matters aside, saying that I'm trolling reveals a lot of insecurity on your part and about your game, if you don't think Ian is 5.5, you're a...

    Why do we tend to frame shots when we accelerate hard?

    That's interesting, can you point me to a video of you hitting some rallies so I can see this technique in action?

    Critique my technique

    Jealous of that wall ngl You move pretty well, you can definitely hit harder so the ball bounces back to you even well behind the baseline, will give a better idea of what amount of energy to put out in every shot in a real tennis rally and also what kind of motion you need to execute to get...
