    Knot Question - Parnell tweak

    Hi guys. Instead of going OVER the top of the first loop with the Parnell, what's it called if you go THROUGH the loop again and then finish as per the Parnell? Cheers, Paul

    Basic swing weight question

    Thanks so much, for the reply Irvin. You're a gent. Did my first two this morning for a client. Didn't charge though. How much do you guys in the USA charge per frame for weight and balance customisation? 15 dollars per frame? Or less?

    Basic swing weight question

    Hi folks. Sorry about this basic question. Is it okay to offer customers a basic racket matching service? ie just static weight and balance Or should you not offer it if you can't deliver a swing weight reading? Cheers, Paul Cheers, Paul

    Have you ever seen anything like this?

    New client showed up today with this. Babolat Drive Light. With main and cross tied off on the same string. Looked mental. Crosses clearly tie off 10B. Was charged £23 pounds for it too. Thoughts? Cheers, Paul Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk

    Just wanted to say thankyou

    I'm not a huge contributor to this board and ask far more questions, than give answers. But I just wanted to say thanks to everyone for being so helpful. Your advice over the last couple of years has been invaluable. Cheers, Paul Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk

    Can knots loosen over time?

    A client recently brought me a racket which has been strung by someone else previously. Strung with a round poly - unbranded. He hadn't used it for 5 months ish. The knots had massive gaps in the loop. Can knots loosen over time as I can't imagine that they looked like that then when left...

    Strung Racket Balance question

    Cheers, Irvin. The racket was unstrung 325 balance (according to head) Strung with Head Lynx 1.3 and Sensation 1.3 I suppose the point I'm trying to get is that all rackets get head heavier after they've been strung? Therefore unless it has been 'modded' it won't play as the pre-strung...

    Strung Racket Balance question

    Hi guys. Need some advice. If the unstrung balance of a frame is 330mm, then the logical/ correct balance of the strung racket would nearer 335-340mm is that correct. I assume that most players don't rebalance the racket, post stringing, to the original balance do they? Cheers, Paul Sent...

    Made my own balance board today

    Good idea. I measured my frames earlier. Made me panic at first. Head Extreme mp measured at 33.7cm. Then I remembered that the published balance is unstrung [emoji16] Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk

    Is a 4lbs difference too much in a poly/ multi?

    Hi guys. Is 52/56 lbs too much of a differential in a poly/ multi hybrid. 52 1.3 RPM. 56 1.3 Sensation. Any help appreciated. Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk

    Poly/Multi Hybrid: PPC, Multifeel, or RIP Control for crosses?

    I've just made the same switch. From full poly to hybrid. Using 1.3 Blast in mains, 1.3 Sensation in crosses. It's awesome. Breaks after about 5hrs. But perfect level of spin and more importantly touch. My drop shots have improved massively with a multi cross. I string mains at 53. Cross...

    Slippery poly main suggestions

    Hi folks. I'm really enjoying playing with RPM Blast 1.30 in the mains, at 52, and Sensation in the crosses, at 54. The slippery coating on the Blast seems to work better than other polys like Cyclone etc - which dig in and fix the bed. Are there any cheaper similarly slippery polys that will...

    Hybrid mains tension

    Hi Steve. I've moved from a speed mp to extreme mp for more forgiveness on returns. So I've gone up three pounds with the main to power down the extreme. But found it too harsh. Hence the multi cross. I now love the hybrid of RPM 1.3 and sensation, especially on drop shots. But am keen...

    Hybrid mains tension

    Cheers, Skippy. Another quick question. Does the multi reduce the overall stiffness of the poly main? Or will the poly, at 52 for example, still play with it's original stiffness rating/ vibration level etc? Cheers, Paul Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk

    Hybrid mains tension

    Hi folks. I normally string a full bed poly at 52lbs. If I move to a hybrid of the same poly and a multi cross, do I need to increase the tension of main to get the same 'relative' feel ie should I go to 54/56 etc Or keep the main at 52 and just up the cross to 54? Sent from my SM-G950F...

    Problem stringing client's string 'set'

    Hi guys. Yesterday, I strung a frame for a new client. He brought a set of RPM Blast with him, but when I opened it, it was damaged. So I put in Alu Power as a replacement. He was happy +it's more expensive for a start. But it made me wonder what you more experienced guys do if there is a...
