    Say something that nobody here knows about you

    There are a lot more organic choices in your area obviously. Where I live they are way over priced. I prefer a mixture or cooked onions and tomatoes with soy sauce. Not crazy about ketchup itself. I like chilli sauce more

    Cannot decide on low poly, syngut or hybrid

    I don't count the time to cut put old strings. It takes me about 20min from when I start threading new strings on. Longer for o port and 18x20 patterns. And for stiffer polys that don't weave easy. Probably takes 30min total including cutting out strings and measuring new strings, etc. Will...

    Do you know where your partner stands to serve?

    Unfortunately not many doubles players think like you do...... I mean, I know I can hit a massive serve at full power and get it in 1 out of 10 so why should I not do that?

    Advice: First Time League Captain

    Great idea. I always end up having to tell my partner to make sure they get their first serve attempt in when playing match tiebreaker because invariably the pressure gets to them if they miss the first serve and then they double fault. Once they double fault once, they stress and choke and do...

    This shouldn't be as much of a problem as I'm making it.

    Will have another look at mine. I got two reels, and the one is definitely prone to breaking very easily. Will have a good look and see if there is a difference between the two reels I got. I bought them at the same time so I presumed they would have been from the same batch so to speak and thus...

    Do you know where your partner stands to serve?

    I have always played where the net players calls the shot and indicates where the serve should go and what the net player will do. That way the net player does not need to look back to see what the server is doing as they already know. If the server wants to call the shots they you should...

    I agree. The spiral on the pp gold spiral I had looked like it was stuck on the outside of the string rather than inside as a part of it

    Jolly's Polys

    The guys I string it for always ask for 52lbs in Clash 100 Tour with the Lux smart string if that helps. Decent players with moderate spin

    This shouldn't be as much of a problem as I'm making it.

    Eeeeek. I thought as much. I have a reel of that and I find it awful to string. Maybe I got a dud reel but if I try string it above 25kg /55lbs then it nearly always snaps no matter how slow I string. Never snap anything else so can't imagine it's something I do wrong. Even once I have managed...

    Rule clarification: I hit my partner with my first serve

    Damn it hurts being hit on the ear by a first serve

    Stiffest string I've had was the apollo competition 1.3mm poly. Gold in colour. Like a piece of wire and a PITA to string up. Kept impaling my fingertips when doing crosses as it would not bend

    More a problem that I am one of the strongest players at my club.... The first team never come to play. So I have to try stay focused and not lose concentration. Work on ball placement and positioning rather than simply out hitting opposition

    From what I observe in my neighbour cats seem to be the worst thing to happen to other cats.

    Cannot decide on low poly, syngut or hybrid

    Thanks. Going to try that. Just frustrating because I only get to play about once a week so I'm not always sure if I don't like the strings because they are wrong or if I don't like them because I'm playing badly that day. Then I restring and I may not like them anyway. Maybe I needed to take my...

    Most club players using poly

    I hear I hear you about the balls. When I am the dust on the courts chews through the felt in a matter of games at times. One time we barely got through a set of doubles before the balls became like little bullets with no spin. And old flat balls are the pits too although they do make playing...

    Most club players using poly

    I think the guys at your club are open to change. The guys at my club think I'm talking rubbish generally as if it's the stuff the pros use then that's what they should use. Obviously they don't see that they don't use the pros racquets as well. They believe that poly makes it all better and...

    Most club players using poly

    That's a good idea. 90% of the old farts I play with use poly. Not a good idea. Poly in a TiS6 with very short strokes. Equals lots of short balls. Although a few of the old farts lob well with this setup

    Hi and welcome to the board Ever since I started playing more seriously I have used Prince racquets. I had a Prince Response 97 which was awesome til I left it on a train in the UK by accident..... Hope someone got some good use of it. Then I bought my favourite... Prince Turbo Shark LB. I...
