    Anyone else pre stretch their laces?

    I was replacing the laces in my T22 Lites but when I got to the top the laces barely stuck out enough to tie them. I always weave one ahead, being careful not to twist the laces as I go, and only pull by hand, never with a lace puller like I used to use with skates. I thought maybe I bought...

    Graphene Speed Pro, one piece or two?

    I have a brand new Speed Pro that one of my hitting partners just gave me to string. He told me it doesn't matter to him whether it's a one piece or two piece job. It's an 18 by 20 pattern that starts at the head. I would normally use a one piece if it was my racket, but since it's his and...

    Nike City Court VII Men's tennis shoes, size 10

    White, black, and red swoosh. Size 10. Condition is 9.49. I wore them around town to break in, then played one session (three sets) indoors, but my feet slid around too much and I got blisters. Haven't used them since, so they're in excellent condition, but not new. MSRP $60. Yours for $35...

    Badminton racket stringing experts to my rescue please.

    Playing badminton today, I looked at my racket after the point was over and noticed I broke my strings. How could that happen to 45 year old strings in a Wilson Zephyr steel shafted wooden racket left out in the garage for decades that must have cost $2.00 back in the 60's when my dad bought it...

    Thank you ford oliver!

    I had posted in the dampener trading thread for the rare and elusive yellow tennis ball dampener. Almost forgot about it when ford oliver emailed me saying he had one and would send it off to me. He wouldn't even take anything in return, sent it on his dime out the goodness of his heart...

    MacEnroe paintings

    Did these for fun many years back. Were part of an "Art as Sport as Art" exhibit at the former Erie Street Gallery in the River North section of Chicago. The night of the artists' reception it snowed double digit inches, so only one friend I invited was able to attend. It was a fun event...

    The Sore Thumbs Club

    I'm a member. Saturday I thought I would replace the CAP grommets on one of my Prestige Pros. I figured it should take me 20 minutes tops if I took my time. It ended up taking well over an hour because of the stops, starts and do overs. First of all, the old ones did not want to come...

    A shot of whiskey every morning…

    and he lived to be 94! I've heard this anecdote several times, and wonder to myself if there is anything to it. According to "legend" the whiskey tasted more like rocket fuel, and was only taken once in the morning before eating anything. Does anyone subscribe to this or know of any...

    efete is a world class buyer!

    Thanks to efete, I was able to sell and ship two of my rackets all the way to Santiago Chile! He helped facilitate the international deal by using a shipping service in Miami to send him the rackets, allowing me to keep to my shipping to CONUS only policy. Communication was ongoing and...

    Awkward tie off hole for last cross

    I've run into the same problem with a couple rackets… Wilson n4, and a Prince Air O. The last cross ties off at 11B which practically intersects the outside main. This leaves almost no room to tie off without rubbing against that main. I attempted a pro knot which lies under the main, but I...

    Is cardboard the new plastic?

    Now that we have a bicycle made of cardboard, how long before we're playing tennis with cardboard rackets? What's next? Cardboard cars, boats, houses? If you buy one of these bicycles, does it ship in a cardboard box? Lots of great possibilities for this technology, but leave rackets...

    Losing a step…

    per decade… would that make any sense? How many years go by before you start to notice you're one step away from that ball you used to get to easily? When I was 22 I could run down any ball with no problem. Now, over 40 years later, I see the ball and think I can get to it only to fall short...

    You know you've done a perfect job when…

    Your customer picks up his racket and uses it to beat you 6-2, 6-1, 6-1 and does it without seeming to break a sweat. Worst beat down I can remember in a looong time, every thing that could possibly go his way did so. We've hit before and it was a lot more even. When we finished, I told...

    Second serve hits ball in service box. My point?

    Maybe this has been discussed already, but I couldn't find it. I'm serving. First serve is long and receiver lets the ball remain in his service box. I look at his partner to see if he's going to clear the ball but he leaves it there. Second serve hits the ball lying in the service box. We...

    U.S. Open

    When top pro golfers are made to look like rank amateurs, that has to be one of, if not the toughest, golf courses I've ever seen for a major tournament. Tee shots off the fairway. Second shots into the sand. Sand shots to five feet away from the cup. Two putt. Insane amount of short putts...

    My Jack Kramer Autograph "Racquetball" racket!

    This racket was too heavy for me anyway, so I decided to cut it down and see if it would work for racquetball. After carefully sawing it in two, I was able to fit a small dowel rod between the throat and handle for more stability. The ribbon covers up the cut perfectly. Used regular wood glue...
